This place has such a cool vibe and perfect ambiance that it's remarkable. So remarkable is it that this is my first posting to tripadvisor. After 30+ years of camping and roughing it in Anza Borrego we've decided that for some visits to this beautiful desert, comfort trumps wilderness. We've stayed at every other place (excluding motels) here around Borrego... More

We drove down to Borrego Springs for one night and stayed at BVI. We stayed in Room 15. It was wonderful. The patio is good sized with lovely candle filled sconces to use in the evening. We are full time desert residents so having a cool evening for an outdoor fire was a huge hit; and yes, we did burn... More

It's fun to hear how much you enjoyed your stay in La Casita (#15). We think staying in that cozy apartment is the closest thing to living here -- including the outdoor chiminea and a fire under the stars. Thanks so much for visiting! We look forward to your return and wish you the best of the coming holiday season. More

We stayed here on our one night stay on our way to Palm Springs. Great place for hiking, jeep tours, wildlife viewing. Breakfast was included and was very good. Hot tub was great for stargazing late into the night. The Inn blends in with the desert and the plants. The view from our room was beautiful. The hotels staff was... More

Whilst touring in SoCal (Southern California) earlier this month, my husband and I stopped for the night at this delightful hotel in the middle of the desert with its lovely gardens. There weren't many guests as it was early in their season and we arrived late afternoon but the hotel staff were happy to remove the cover on the outdoor... More

We have been going down from Canada's north country to Borrego Valley Inn 6 times now, liking it more every time. It's a fine place to start our desert wanderings. We love the desert and the plants, and the Inn's people are great hosts.

So glad to have discovered Borrego Springs and the Borrego Valley Inn. Wonderful hikes, wildlife viewing, food, star gazing, art, and relaxation. It took us 4 hours from LA (ideally without traffic it would be 3) and it is well worth the driving time. Everyone at the Inn was so helpful with suggestions for things to do and see and... More

Thank you for taking the time to discover Borrego Springs and the Inn. We are former LA residents, so we understand the quest for a quiet getaway, and now, of course, we're hooked!

My wife and I visited here as part of our vacation in San Diego. We love the desert, so couldn't resist the chance to get some sun and dry heat.

Our first trip to Borrego Springs from Palm Springs. This was an adventure we had planned to see parts of the Desert we had not explored. We had been given recommendations from several people to try the Borrego Valley Inn.. for it's peacefulness and attention to detail. From taking the turn into the driveway, we knew we had made the...

Thank you, neighbor! Palm Springs is so close, yet in another (busy) world, and we're pleased you chose to make your destination "the other desert" out here over the Santa Rosa Mountains. It sounds like you made the most of your stay -- sometimes merely "exploring" the back patio is enough in itself! Thanks for visiting and taking the time... More

My boyfriend and I took a weekend getaway here. What an amazing find! The place is gorgeous, perfectly appointed, and has tons of thoughtful little touches throughout; each room has its own private walled patio as well. The little kitchenettes are completely furnished; we were able to groceries and make a few meals and snacks for ourselves. The pools and... More
