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

I have been coming to Hacienda Del Sol for many years. I really like the shaded pool and desert landscaping. The rooms are basic but clean. The rating slipped considerably due to my last visit. We very much like the manager Mike Gaffney. He is friendly, has a good sense of humor and does his best to make us feel... More

We’ve been clients of Hacienda del Sol for over a decade, mostly summers when we participate in the park’s annual Sheep Count. We love the natural landscaping, the desert creatures that inhabit the property, and the very clean and partly shaded pool. We’ve appreciated the upgrades to bathrooms, A/C units and the outdoor patio area, as well as the pool.... More

This was a super fun motel in a beautiful area of California. It was just across the street from several restaurants and other shopping areas. I loved the decor and location, absolutely gorgeous. The owners were very nice and accommodating. Very clean rooms. I highly recommend this old school gem.

Been coming here for years, preferably in the warmer/hot months when we have the place almost to ourselves. The natural desert landscape, quiet and serenity beats meditation! The pool is well maintained, crystal clear and kept about 80 degrees, so one can float for hours on end without getting at all chilled. Seems silly in the desert, you'd think the... More

Came in to town with my 3 grown kids, girlfriend, and daughter in law to hike Slot Canyon. Checked in late and Mike left us a key and the lights on. We stayed in a duplex and felt like we had our own hacienda in the desert. Clean but basic. Sitting on your own porch is a real treat.

My family stays here once or twice a year and we absolutely love it! There are 6 of us and we fit comfortably in one of the duplexes, which have ample sleeping space and little kitchens. It's not fancy but we really enjoy it. It's quiet and we usually have the pool to ourselves. It really is our secret desert... More
