Over the last 12 years we have visited the Anza Borrego desert four times (from the UK) and we just keep coming back to the Borrego Valley Inn. It's the only place I know where, in the evening, you can go out of the back door of your room and be standing IN the desert within a few steps, among... More

One of my favorite getaway spots. Gwen, Rich, Louisa and Francisco always accommodating as ever and the room and property are immaculate. Beautiful! Thanks for always making my birthday weekend a special one. Love the new fence around the back pool!

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at the BVI for our second time. I love Borrego Springs and the Inn is the icing on the cake. The owners couldnt be nicer or make you feel any more welcome. The only thing I dont like about the Inn is that you have to leave and go back to... More

Thanks so much for coming back and considering the Inn the "icing on the cake" of the magnificent Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. We truly understand about the "having to leave" part, too. We liked it so much we ended up buying the place! Now, 8 years later, we're ready to retire. Thanks for your kind words, and we'll do our... More

This is a great little place to decompress. Enjoy the included breakfast everyday. I have stayed in several different rooms and have my favorites. I recommend trying a few different rooms to find what suits you.

"Decompress" is the magic word, and we're pleased you choose the Inn for your "re-set" from a busy life. Thanks for taking the time for your post and for your advice about rooms. We do have several room styles, all a little different, and guests DO have their favorites! Thanks for coming back, it's always a pleasure to welcome you.... More

My husband and I spent three nights at BVI in February. It was our fifth visit from the UK. It would honestly be worth every minute of a twelve hour flight just to spend one night here and then another twelve hours straight back! Seriously! Believe everything everyone else says about how blissful the Inn is- its all that and... More

Borrgeo Valley Inn is stop notch from the rooms to the breakfast every morning. The rooms are nicely appointed and very comfortable. We had #13 and it was perfect for our three night stay. All rooms face a lovely courtyard where there are numeroud desert plants and birds. Each morning breakfast is served...and we are not talking continental breakfast either.... More

Pros: The best feature of this inn is the courtyard. The rooms are arranged in two wings facing each other across an open courtyard filled with cactus, shrubs and a large bird cage. A veranda provides a shaded place to sit in front of each room while enjoying the songs of the many wild birds which join the captive birds... More

This is the perfect place to retire to after a strenuous hike (and there are no other kinds) in the vast, forbidding but spectacular Anza-Borrego desert. Rich and Gwynne, the innkeepers, are gracious and accommodating, the coffee strong the way it's supposed to be, and the breakfasts filling. Book one of the Palo Verde rooms if you can. They've got...

We appreciate your generous comments and are particularly pleased you enjoyed nature's amenities and the Inn's proximity to local creature comforts like Carlee's.

The check in was easy and the lobby is comfortable, like home. The room was super clean, and I almost did not want to leave it except to use the pool and hot tub. Breakfast and coffee were fantastic. We are now talking about our return visit for fall 2014 with family and friends.

This is the second time we've stayed at Borrego Valley Inn. What a beautiful, peaceful spot and to decompress from city life. The staff are charming and accommodating and the Inn is beautifully maintained and well appointed. I have already booked for 2015.
