The Borrego Valley Inn is near Christmas Circle, which is the center of town, such as it is. It is a stylish, comfortable one-story inn with wonderful home-made items such as fresh-baked muffins on their breakfast buffet. The Anza-Borrego State Park Visitor Center is left from the entrance about a mile.

Thanks so much for your endorsement! You are so right -- the Inn is not the "low budget alternative" for Borrego Springs, and that's because we insist on delivering quality to our guests. As you might imagine, doing business out here in the middle of nowhere, far from resources most take for granted, is an expensive proposition. Our breakfast offerings... More

Everything I thought it would be and more. Loved the grounds, very magical. Quiet, peaceful, beautiful. The staff was beyond helpful and polite. The breakfast the next day was amazing. Wonderful all around.

For a quiet relaxing retreat we made our way to Borrego Springs and the Borrego Valley Inn. The inn is an authentic rendering of Spanish adobe architecture and offers 14 rooms in two buildings along with a building for the main lobby. Each room has a main bedroom with gas fireplace, a kitchenette, lavatory, shower, and water closet. The lavatory... More

What a delightful place! Well decorated, nice sized casita style rooms with all the modern conveniences one would expect, including free wi-fi that works well. We were in room 14, at the end of a group of 7 rooms (there's another group of 7 across the courtyard), with a spectacular view of the mountains right from the room as well... More

We were disappoint with what we got for the price. The inn looks nice but we had to drive to restaurants. Breakfast was okay. The bathroom set up was annoying. You couldn't close the door without stepping into the shower. The fan and air-conditioner were too noisy to use at night. Thank goodness the desert Spring air at night is... More

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!

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.
