This is definitely a jewel in the desert!
I thought perhaps that the pictures on the website made this Inn look better than it actually was. Wow, was I wrong! It is even better than it looks! This place is absolutely spotless and the rooms, decor and grounds display southwestern charm. Every room has been redone and sports 16 inch adobe/plaster walls, new furniture, stunning tile and art work, lovely bedspreads and quilts and even Direct TV. The beds were over the top comfortable and on par with any four star resort .
The buildings and courtyard are very southwestern with desert plants in abundance. The spanish fountain adds to the ambiance. We sat on the porch in front of our room (The Dolores) and visited with friends and watched an incredible array of stars light up the sky. The pool was pristine and the entire place has been refurbished. If you are looking for some rest and relaxation, this is the place to go.
Room sizes range from doubles to full size casitas. Each room sort of has it's own theme. The owners are friendly and accomodating and were delightful all the way from the reservation process to check-in. This is a "must visit" place and we will definitely be returning.
The website does show this as an Inn and RV park. The RV park is on the other side of the Inn and never interfered with the enjoyment or peacefulness of the Inn.
