My fiancé and I have come here for three years in a row and love it! The owners are extremely nice and welcoming. The rooms are exactly what you need: AC, toiletries, bed, blankets, tv with DVD player, etc... nothing fancy but it works! The pool is well kept and there are floatation devices to use for relaxation! It is... More

Hallelujah! There is now a beautiful new ice machine to churn out all the ice you could want. I look forward to returning soon and lounging by the very lovely pool area (in my opinion, the best pool in Borrego Springs.)

My husband and I spent 4 days exploring the desert flowers and geology of Anza-Borrego. Our room at Hacienda del Sol was perfect for our needs. No frills, but all the basics worked cleanly and well. Our hosts, Mike and Cathy, were friendly, down-home folks who were responsive to any questions we had. We appreciated the regulation handbars in the... More

I tried to locate a website and images BEFORE going to this place - but no luck. Unfortunately, I wasn't aware that Yelp posted images. I arrived very late to the motel with an advance call on acquiring the address and letting them know of my midnight arrival. For $80 dollars - the room was beyond substandard. I recently stayed...

Thank you for your recent review on Trip Advisor. I am truly sorry that your motel room experience at the Hacienda del Sol was not a favorable one. I understand that you arrived quite late and that my managers made accommodations to leave the room open for you and also powered the A/C for your comfort. Our motel rooms are... More

Well this was our first time staying here. The place is being worked on so the upgrades are coming along nicely. We met Mike & Cathy who are very nice and funny to boot :) We even enjoyed their company one night under the beautiful stars and had dessert with them. We will be back as the place is mellow...

We are long time visitors to Hacienda del Sol, we've been going there over 20 years now. First off, Mike and Cathy are wonderful hosts, Mike is always helpful and accommodating and we enjoy seeing him on our visits. The rooms are basic, but just fine with us, they are cozy and quiet and spacious. We did not go in... More

Last October, we stayed for a couple of nights at Hacienda del Sol while we were doing a photo exhibit at the Visitor Center. I wrote a review saying that we were troubled by the increasing lack of maintenance and the death (and non-replacement) of the ice machine. Well, we stayed there again this past weekend (since it wasn't hot,... More

We've been coming here annually for about 14 years and can't imagine staying anywhere else in Borrego Springs. Mike, the manager, is super friendly and hardworking; we love his sense of humor. The grounds are well maintained, and the rooms are always clean. But the carpets in room 21 are worn so thin that our feet were touching concrete in... More

We have stayed at the Hacienda del Sol for many years now. When we stayed at the Hacienda during the summer there was no ice machine, a real bummer if you need to put ice in your cooler. As of 1-24-15, Hacienda now has a brand new ice machine. Great! We stayed in a duplex which is much nicer than... More

Thank you for your recent review on Trip Advisor. Yes, finally a brand new ice machine. You have no idea how hard it is to get one delivered to Borrego. It took 3 tries to get one to the hotel (undamaged). Then once delivered, getting an authorized installer out there... another act of God. In any case, we are up... More

Check in was a bit slow - took about 5 minutes for someone to show up after we "pushed the button once only" since no one was at the desk when we first arrived. Room was very clean and had no odor, although it was very dated. The poor rating was given because at 11:30 pm, the three guys in... More

Thank you for your most recent review of the Hacienda del Sol. I apologize for the guests next to you and for your unpleasant night's sleep. We are in the process of updating the motel room decor which should be complete in early February. All of the rooms in the desert creek and crackle due to the extreme heat and... More
