Such great design for comfort and beauty morning and night. Breakfast is delicious and beautifully presented. A++! We slept so well and loved our private patio for morning meditation and then night sky stargazing in the open air. Views in all directions.

Borrego is about peace, quiet, wide open spaces, rustic style, and that is exactly what Borrego Valley Inn delivers. I love the adobe architecture, the gardens, the detail to creating a magical and authentic desert retreat. The rooms are very charming with fireplace and private garden in back and veranda in front. And the breakfasts are outstanding!

Than you so much for returning! It's great to know you still find the inn peaceful, beautiful and charming and that you enjoyed our Badlands Breakfast Buffet, too. We're fortunate to have the opportunity to share the desert experience with like-minded visitors like you, and we appreciate your kind post here. Until we see you again, happy trails! More

My wife and I have stayed at the Borrego Valley Inn several times. We have treated friends to a visit on special occasions and this time we treated my brother and sister-in-law from northern California. It was their first time to be in the Anza Borrego desert and of course the first time to stay at BVI. They were truly... More

We stayed one night in the Cholla room, #1. What a beautiful property, room, and environment. We had a wonderful visit; many attentive details to add to our experience. Definitely would stay here again. Charming and relaxing. Only "complaints" were that the shower water pressure was very low, hot water took forever, and the bathroom sink didn't drain properly.

The Borrego Valley Inn is a wonderful place to stay. It's peaceful and quiet, the clothing optional pool and spa are a wonderful way to spend a hot day, the rooms are cozy and have their own private outdoor space. I loved it here and can't wait to return.

Spent 3 nights at this 15 room inn within 2 miles of Christmas Circle in central Borrego Springs and 2 miles in the opposite direction to Anza-Borrego State Park visitor center. It has an intimate feeling due to its small size and great desert landscaped courtyard and rooms are luxurious but with a casual decor. Courtyard is full of birdsong... More

The Borrego Valley Inn is an excellent bed and breakfast. Small complex with excellent architecture, well appointed cottages, and breakfasts that we really enjoyed. The owners were present and they and their staff were committed to making our stay as enjoyable as possible. The Inn is located very convenient to Borrego Palm Canyon and other state park landmarks. It is... More

How lovely to know you appreciated the "classically Borrego" experience you had at the Inn -- that's our aim. We're happy you enjoyed our breakfasts and our village location, too. Thank you so much for visiting and for posting a review. "Borrego at its best" is music to our ears, and you can't imagine how much we treasure that evaluation!... More

This is our usual "go to" place in Borrego. The staff is great as are the amenities. The feeling is laid back and quiet. We enjoy the clothing optional pool and spa and our room this time had a fire place which added to the ambience.

This was my first time going to Anza-Borrego. I usually go to Joshua Tree but decided to check out a new place in anticipation of the cactus flowering - it is supposed to be great in Anza-Borrego.
