I wanted someplace close to get away for a few days from a stressful job. My husband is not able to travel during the summer due to his job, so I was going to travel alone. I searched for a place in Borrego and found Borrego Valley Inn. I am so happy I found this place and will make it... More

We look forward to coming to BVI every year. Very quiet, very low key ,very comfortable. We loved the grounds and the room we stay in is perfect.. Breakfast is delicious. We adore the pools. Kay goes above and beyond and delivers those little touches that makes this place so charming. We frequently go to Palm Springs for the modern... More

Thank you so much for returning and for posting your review. "Unwind" is the perfect word to describe the best activity here -- especially in the summer. We're pleased you (like us!) enjoy the peace and quiet and lack of crowds and that you can "hole up" here for a few days. That's a luxury we can all use more... More

This was our second trip to both Borrego Springs and the Borrego Valley Inn two years in a row and I can't say enough about how much I love staying here! I should admit that I enjoy the process of choosing interesting places to stay, and I'm seldom disappointed. I homed in on the Borrego Valley Inn last summer after... More

DesertInnKeeper, Owner at Borrego Valley Inn, responded to this review

You are an astute and articulate observer -- thank you for that, and for your return visit. As you note, the Inn is not the "budget option," but most guests, as you describe, appreciate the value of a small, distinctive, and quiet venue -- a decidedly "un-Resort" atmosphere. We're glad you enjoyed Room 8 and the views and privacy there,... More

When I thought about the most beautiful place to propose I thought about showing my girlfriend the world. How could I do that? Show her the stars. When the sun goes down the Anza-Borrego dessert lets you listen and understand life a little more. It really makes you feel alive. I had never been to the dessert before my stay... More

This is our third stay at the BVI and once again, it did not disappoint. We arrived late Saturday evening and even though the lobby was closed, our keys were easy to find. I had received a call from Kay who is a wonderful, friendly and informative staff member, instructing me on where to find the keys once we arrived.... More

First off if you go out here looking for any night life then you are barking up the wrong tree. The tension had been building for a whlie, a short road trip was in order. Its the off season for them right now so I got a stellar rate on expedia (125). The room was awesome, AC worked great and... More

Sounds to us like you got the "summer in the desert" experience completely dialed in! You're right -- not much night life here except for what you create for yourself. And it looks like you did a superb job at that! Thanks so much for choosing the Inn for your little road trip from LA. We used to do the... More

My wife and I enjoy taking weekend excursions when we can. Not wanting to fight the Palm Springs crowd, and wanting some "downtime", we stayed a weekend at the Borrego Valley Inn. And, what a wonderful experience it was! The Inn is only a few blocks from central Borrego Springs, with a picturesque view of the desert and mountains surrounding... More

We found an oasis of tranquility and a haven from the blazing summer sun... Our 4th of July wedding anniversary always brings an anxious expectation of quiet celebration, and we have found the perfect place!

Good breakfast, comfortable rooms, friendly staff, well maintained grounds. Central to Anza Borrego State Park and surrounding areas. All in all, a great desert getaway. Try to visit within the peak season, because dining options in Borrego Valley are limited in the summer months. Also, the driveway into the inn is a little tricky to find from the main road.

A piece of paradise! Best part of our trip. Peaceful, relaxing, naturally beautiful. The only sounds are the birds. Enjoyed sitting in the hot tub under the stars. Magical. Breakfasts were a delight. The corner room was bright and private.
