I used to stay here as a kid and came back with my two sons to show them Borrego. This place is awesome and the updates are fantastic. The kids loved the western theme and pool. We loved the restaurant patio, great country music and service. Will definitely be back. Thanks for a great weekend.

We decided after reading a quirky review in the Desert Sun about this place, and left within the hour after booking online. About 90 minute drive from Palm Springs where we on holiday. We'd always wanted to check out life in an airstream so we chose the 'Life's a Trip' airstream. [The canned hams looked a little too small]. It... More

We rented two little campers for just one night. We brought the kids and their bikes. It was a great place to stay even though it was the end of the season and we were just about the only people there and the restaurant wasn't open. I'd love to go back again sometime. I live in Michigan so this area... More

Visited the areas for a family get together. The check in process was quite slow however the staff was friendly and helpful. Our room was large, clean and had all the amenities. The hotel is fashioned after an old western town, fun for families and tourists. The wifi worked very well and we had no issues with it at all.... More

We had a very pleasant stay at the Palm Canyon Hotel. We were able to get a room with no reservation, on a weeknight in March. The room was very comfortable - quiet, a comfortable bed and pillows, and very strong air conditioning and wifi. The hotel is very close to the State Park Visitors' Center, and to the downtown...

Borrego Springs is a tiny town in an incredibly beautiful desert. Its upscale resorts are out of my price range, so I was delighted to find the Palm Canyon Resort--with hotel rooms as well as an RV park. The hotel and restaurant are designed and decorated as a kind of Disney version of an old west town, but both are... More

We stayed at the Palm Canyon Hotel for a Friday and Saturday night. Check in was easy and our room location was close to the main building for check in, general store, bar, and restaurant. Laid out like an old town. Our room was clean and comfortable, parking was easy. Wifi was only available in the main building and needed... More

My wife and I rented an Airstream Trailer (Shelley). The trailer was acceptable, plain and moderately clean. The site was well set up. The breakfast buffet was very average and sitting on the porch the rather loud country western music really compromised what could have been a lovely morning. The charges I was quoted on the 'old' website in December... More

We stayed in a darling little renovated "canned ham" vintage trailer and while the place oozed charm, it lacked a bit in basic amenities. The website described "The Hound Dog" as having a full bed and also a dining area. When we arrived, we discovered that the bed was obviously a twin bed and therefore we needed to make up... More

The hotel part looks hokey from the outside (faux "Western" facades), but when you step inside the room, you get a spacious, sleek, comfortable modern room. Great location, right by the entrance to Anza-Borrego State Park. Friendly staff and very moderately priced.
