Our stay at the Borrego Valley Inn was just what I needed . . . a serene environment . . . a quiet and meditative experience. If you need to get away from the hustle and bustle of the big city life or if you need to de-stress from your work environment, then this is the place to go. Spectacular...

It sounds like you tuned right into the valley "vibe" here, and we couldn't be happier about that. We aim to provide that serene, quiet, and meditative experience that we all seem to need these days. And you got to meet our road runner buddy! Isn't he something? He's definitely a "regular," and we have to work to keep him...

We came to Borrego for a wedding and stayed at the Inn. The rooms were clean with fresh linens on the beds, the breakfasts were all homemade breads and fresh juices,yummy bacon and eggs. We will be sure to return if ever in Borrego Springs again.

Thanks so much for staying with us. We had a great time meeting all the wedding guests -- such a festive, celebratory occasion! We're happy to know you had a wonderful stay, and we hope you have the chance to visit again. Remember, when the SoCal coast is socked in with chilly fog, we're basking in warm, dry sunshine out...

This B&B is isolated, small (14 SW theme casitas) , quiet, and geared toward adults. After meeting the "inkeepers" on a San Diego airplane flight, my wife and I had delayed going on this get-away for many years...but now will be going back no fewer than twice a year. Take a look at their website. It is everything it claims...

Nice, relaxing place to stay. Adobe building with private patio in the back (2 chairs and 2 chaise lounges) or two chairs out front facing a quiet courtyard with birds and desert plants. Perfect for a glass of wine in the evening and watching the sunset. Rooms are nicely decorated, fridge (no freezer compartment), microwave, coffee maker and a few...

This is an ideal place to get away and "unplug". Breakfast is delicious. Staff extremely accomodating. The pool feels great after a hot and dusty hike. The pool is a bit tired, but I believe they are renovating one of their pools as of April 2013. We would recommend Borrego Valley Inn and will return in the future. Suggestions: 1)...

We're so glad you visited and found the Inn a great place to unplug -- we all need that, don't we? Glad you liked breakfast, our friendly staff, and a cool pool to unwind in after hiking.

This is the second time my husband and I have visited the Inn. It fits beautifully into the dessert country with adobe buildings surrounding a courtyard filled with native plants and desert birds, even a road runner who happily struts around for visitors to admire. The rooms are decorated in classic southwest style, and taking a shower while watching the...

Thanks for returning! As east coast natives ourselves, we surely understand the appeal of such a different environment. It sounds like you soaked it all in -- sun, stars, and sassy roadrunners.

Delicious breakfast and cookies. Extremely kind staff. Great place to stay. It's the best place in Borrego Springs. They go the extra mile there -- cokes and tea out all day long. Cookies at 4:00. Maps to help you get to restaurants. Brochures for guided tours. The theme and architecture is southwest. You feel like you're in Santa Fe instead...

Thank you for your visit last week and for your review. We're happy you found "peaceful luxury" at the Inn. Providing that kind of experience out here in "total wilderness" is an expensive proposition for us, too!

My wife discovered this 15-room gem in in the middle of California's largest, but often overlooked, state park -- Anza-Borrego. The Borrego Valley Inn (BVI) is located in quirky Borrego Springs, which once had aspirations of becoming the next Palm Springs. The BVI lies a quick one-mile drive from park headquarters and offers a full array of services and amenities....
