Borrego Springs Motel
GreenLeadersPlatinum level
Reviewed April 2, 2013

We love traveling with our dog and take him on the road whenever we can. Borrego Springs Motel doesn't just "allow" dogs, it embraces them. This is a simple motel: simple rooms well kept. It isn't about [insert hotel amenity here] but about waking up and having fresh brewed coffee the chairs in the front of your room as the other guests awaken to join you in savoring the sunrise on the surrounding towering peaks. It is about the owners turning off the lights at 9:00 so that the stars overhead pop. Ultimately, it is about the desert and allowing it into your bones. If this description resonates with you, then this is the place to stay.

This motel was a step back to the past of the early 50's but with a difference. Bonni and Kenny have refurbished this little motel with much care and consideration. It's clean,quiet, and handy to everything. No TV or Wi Fi but it was nice to get away from all that technology and just sit outside and gaze at the stars. Borrego Springs is one of two designated dark skies in the United States. The stars are amazing.

Room Tip: If you have allergies to pets they have rooms put aside where pets have never ventured.

Kenny and Bonni are very gracious people and have put much effort (and pride) into their little motel. Clean, comfortable, reasonable and safe, I would recommend this motel to anyone, families or solo travelers.

I've avoided Borrego Springs because of the high prices for rooms. No longer a problem with the recent opening of this motel. Totally thoughtfully refurbished. Quiet and comfortable. Friendly and helpful owner. A bonus is that Borrego Springs is a great place to visit. Don't miss the strange sculptures in the desert.

This motel is very reasonably priced. It's minimal in a good sense: There is no internet, phone or tv (but there are books and magazines) and it is comfortably furnished and quiet. The owners were very nice and made helpful suggestions on things to do. The hotel was recently updated and our room was very clean, and came with a coffee maker and fridge. There is a fire pit and grill outside where one can sit and listen to the sounds of the desert at night. If I return to the area, this is the place I will stay.

Room Tip: There is a room with a nice size bed for two that is connected to a second unit with two single bed...

This recently updated motel is clean throughout and upgraded with comfy conforming mattresses and spacious rooms. The theme is green with solar heating on the roof and classic modern furniture. Nice tile work (by the owner) in the showers. Only a long block from the town square and central to visiting the metal sculpture gardens and the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. Helpful hosts and quiet comfort.
