My wife, Thelma, and I spent our 22nd anniversary at this very charming boutique hotel. It was the 4th of July weekend and nature (the heat and the desert beauty) was most impressive. The rooms were cool (both temperature and styling), two pools, very accommodating staff and the owner, Rich, made our stay memorable. We plan to return very soon!

The ingredients that I seek out in a place to stay are cleanliness, tranquiity, and location and this Inn is perfect. On top of hitting top marks they also provide the best Mexican flavoured breakfast that I have ever had. Front office staff were both helpful and accomodating. There is also a small library where one can read publications about... More

The Borrego Valley Inn is one of my favorite places to visit. Surrounded by the Anza Borrego desert, it offers total relaxation in a stunning setting. It's private, romantic, and so wonderful I almost don't want to share it.

This is a unique small property, quite well designed for comfort and convenience. There are a small number of rooms, maybe 14 or so, and they are entirely enjoyable without being too fussy. Our room had a private back deck, a soaking tub in the bathroom, and a small kitchenette with microwave and fridge. They serve a healthy, fresh breakfast... More

This was our second visit to the Borego Valley Inn, and it was as enjoyable as the first. The staff was very welcoming, helpful and professional.
