“An Easy Get-A-Way”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2012

We escaped the coastal May Gray and enjoyed a warm relaxing weekend in town. Treat yourself and rent one of the cottages or duplexes (especially if friends stop by!) and make use of the patio & kitchenette, although the local restaraunts are an easy walk, even in the heat. and The pool is sparkling clean and private. The management is friendly and anxious to offer anything to make our stay more enjoyable.

Room Tip: Ask to see inside each available unit, they will gladly give you a tour.

I was there on assigment & in the summer, very hot hot hot; go in the fall or winter
Pool is wonderful ala' Robert Altman, this is a period piece place (see them before they are bought out by the chains)as they offer that wonderful a & pa charm w/out being in your biz
The pool is illuminated and a cooling reprise to dangle your feet in after dinner
Rooms were perfect especially for cool noon time siesta
Great location...close to salton sea & explorations plus state park is largest in the USA
Great village of borengo springs (antiquing, dining, golfing to sightseeing) and you are right in the heart of it yet here; yet seemingly a grandly rural landscaping...right out in the desert !
Time your visit w/ events as per chamber of commerce
Truly a peaceful place to relax, not Disneyesque or kids as priorities as this one is for you !

A great place to enjoy with family, friends, or for a romantic get away, like we did! Beautiful scenery & in the center of everything! We are definitely going back!

Room Tip: We stayed in the casita. Had a fireplace inside & a fire pit outside on the private patio.

I'm so glad you enjoyed our little of paradise. Casitas are perfect for couples, or to use a base camp in conjunction with motel rooms. The fireplaces are a big hit too.... We appreciate your business, and hope to see you again.

The Hacienda del Sol totally rocked!
Going by the grim photos on the Web site, we weren't expecting much. Boy, were we wrong!
Our room (#19) was clean and quiet, with new bedspreads, horizontal blinds, carpeting and all the rest.
Plus ... a free San Diego Union-Tribune on our doorstep in the morning!

Thanks again for coming back to the Hacienda, and also for noticing our improvements. We are trying very hard to breath free life into our beautiful aged lady, while at the same time maintain the 50's flair. Stay tuned for more improvements..... we appreciate your patronage.....

We stayed at Hacienda del Sol the weekend of Mar 30-April 1. We're long-time customers who usually visit in summer. As always, we enjoyed the unpretentious, laid-back atmosphere. The room was clean and comfy and the pool was clean as always and a reasonable temperature. We were in Room 16; I notice another reviewer said they heard a lot of noise from the icemaker next door, but that wasn't a problem for us. There was a bit of TV noise from the adjoining room, but we turned the AC to the "fan only" setting and the white noise drowned out everything else.

The bathrooms have some nice new chrome-and-glass shelving installed, which helps very much with organizing toiletries (we used to put them on top of the shower wall).

Saturday evening, owners Mark and Tracy held a "customer appreciation" get-together dispensing margaritas to a happy crowd in the patio area. It was nice to meet some of the other guests. Usually when we're at Hacienda, it's July 4th weekend and there aren't too many guests, other than folks who, like us, are counting bighorn sheep for Calif. State Parks.

We're glad that the Hacienda is making small changes but not altering the overall atmosphere of the property. Staying here really adds to our desert experience. When you stay here, be sure to make yourself a cup of in-room coffee, get outdoors before the sun comes up and wander over to the patio. Look for owls, poorwills, and bats flying overhead, and perhaps you'll see a coyote trotting through the complex.

Room Tip: We like the room on the very end of the complex (I think it's rm. 21). It's usually very qui...

We appreciate your feedback, and for continuing to make the Hacienda your place to stay. My grandparents purchased the Hacienda del Sol about 45 years ago, and we continue to enjoy it to this very day. We are trying to be very careful about the improvements we are making, while maintaining the 50's vib.... Thank you for noticing... Hope to see you again soon....

Older motel - most with kitchens - many duplex cabins. It is comfortable, spread out and the grounds are great. The furnishings are mix & match, probably all from second hand stores. Important stuff - good beds, clean sheets, nice big towels, are great. The owners host Sat. night margarita parties during the season - which is winter and spring. I would definitely recommend it and definitely go back. It's in walking distance to a grocery, several restaurants, & stores. Great desert views from most units.

Room Tip: You might ask to check out your unit since the furnishings differ. The units they call cabins - # 6...

We spent 2 nights at the Hacienda del Sol in late March 2012. Although located on the main "highway" through Borrego Springs, the property sits on 6 well landscaped acres and our duplex was private and comfortable, the kitchen well equipped, and everything very clean, but basic. The swimming pool was long enough for laps and was beautifully situated and in perfect shape. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants the flavor of the old Borrego and who isn't that fond of condos. Friendly owners. We couldn't get the DVD to work and the man came right away to set it right. They also have a large selection of DVDs & books in the office. Eve Prior, Portland, OR

Thanks for your most recent stay at the Hacienda del Sol, and for taking the time to share your experience with us. My husband and I share you thoughts about our little oasis.... right out of the 50's, comfortable relaxing atmosphere, private, mature desert landscaping....and walking distance to everything in Borrego.... We hope to see you again soon.
