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! It sounds like you found the real appeal of our "other desert" here -- we often host residents of Palm Springs looking for a peaceful getaway, too.... More

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. This is a beautiful area, if you like desert environments. There are a lot of hiking opportunities. The property is immaculate and a perfect getaway for a couple wanting some... More

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

Thank you for choosing the Inn for your romantic weekend getaway,. We are happy you found that peace and serenity for a "re-charge." It's easy to forget how much we need that cosmic re-set to get back in line with our own sense of self. We enjoyed meeting you -- and it's always such a pleasure to see first time... More

I wanted someplace close to get away for a few days from a stressful job. My husband is not able to travel during the summer due to his job, so I was going to travel alone. I searched for a place in Borrego and found Borrego Valley Inn. I am so happy I found this place and will make it... More

Thank you for finding and choosing the Inn for that most important activity -- a solo getaway, In fact, we welcome many guests like you, looking for that close-in refuge. We're very happy that you enjoyed your stay enough to consider the Inn a new go-to spot. And you discovered On Pins & Needles, that "cute little yarn shop," and... More

We look forward to coming to BVI every year. Very quiet, very low key ,very comfortable. We loved the grounds and the room we stay in is perfect.. Breakfast is delicious. We adore the pools. Kay goes above and beyond and delivers those little touches that makes this place so charming. We frequently go to Palm Springs for the modern... More

Thank you so much for returning and for posting your review. "Unwind" is the perfect word to describe the best activity here -- especially in the summer. We're pleased you (like us!) enjoy the peace and quiet and lack of crowds and that you can "hole up" here for a few days. That's a luxury we can all use more... More

This was our second trip to both Borrego Springs and the Borrego Valley Inn two years in a row and I can't say enough about how much I love staying here! I should admit that I enjoy the process of choosing interesting places to stay, and I'm seldom disappointed. I homed in on the Borrego Valley Inn last summer after... More

You are an astute and articulate observer -- thank you for that, and for your return visit. As you note, the Inn is not the "budget option," but most guests, as you describe, appreciate the value of a small, distinctive, and quiet venue -- a decidedly "un-Resort" atmosphere. We're glad you enjoyed Room 8 and the views and privacy there,... More

When I thought about the most beautiful place to propose I thought about showing my girlfriend the world. How could I do that? Show her the stars. When the sun goes down the Anza-Borrego dessert lets you listen and understand life a little more. It really makes you feel alive. I had never been to the dessert before my stay... More

This is our third stay at the BVI and once again, it did not disappoint. We arrived late Saturday evening and even though the lobby was closed, our keys were easy to find.

Sounds to us like you got the "summer in the desert" experience completely dialed in! You're right -- not much night life here except for what you create for yourself.
