I’ve stayed at better and worse in Borrego Springs, but the bottom line is I loved the vibe here and it was a great value. Just needs a little TLC and it could be great. My new favorite. We will be back.

This is for someone in to architecture and modern design this place his fantastic. Top it off with an amazing kitchen and bar and this is paradise Anza. Oh, there's a hot tub and pool too. Seriously, I don't want to review this place because it'll possibly help send more people there and ...well...it really is worth it.

This is the creepiest run down dirty strange place I have ever been to. It's like any minute someone is going to come out and say you've been punked and you are on hidden camera. It's like a Quinten Taritino movie. The hotel is run down but it has an art gallery downstairs. It's been painted but the wood and furnishings are old and dirty. The parking lot is dirt and looks like Iraq. Stay somewhere else!!! But do pay them a visit just for the shear amusement of how odd it is. It offers fine dining by a patch of very green grass. The tables and staff are very formal. But then you look at the suroundings and it's in ruins..lol

We stayed her off season so the restaurant on site was not open but the rest of the place exceeded our expectations. It was very peaceful and the rooms were quite nice and the beds were very comfortable. The pool area was fabulous.

I learned about this place last year from my sister. It is her go to escape in the summer when Borrego Springs is hot and sleepy. Decided to book a one night stay and am so glad I did. It was secluded and quiet and my friend and I had the place, the spectacular pool, to ourselves. Yes it is hot. 115° midday. But it was like being the only two people in the world and the sun felt amazing. The hotel itself is humble. We did not stay in one of the remodeled rooms. But enjoyed ours just fine. Gorgeous sunrise views from bed. The restaurant is closed Monday and Tuesday for the summer. Ray, the only hotel worker was friendly and laid back and available after 3pm by phone. Look past the blemishes of an older property and embrace the potential of designing your own adventure.
