If you visit Borrego Springs the first thing on your mind will probably be “Where do I stay?” If you are an RVer there are great RV parks; if you are going the motel route you will find motels from basic “a place to lay your head” motels to the luxurious motels with golf courses and spas. I don’t normally like to recommend specific places but I’ll make an exception here. First you need to know that I cringe at paying over $100 a night for a motel room where I am going to spend no more than 8 hours in residence and six of those hours I’ll be comatose. My only requirements are clean and equipped with the necessities — refrigerator, microwave and coffee pot. In Borrego Springs the cost of a night’s stay starts at $60 jumps to $160 up to $250 plus. We opted for the $70/night Borrego Springs Motel and we were thrilled with the accommodations. The owners Kenny and Bonni treated us more like friends than tourists passing through.
Upon arrival we were greeted by Duchess von Julian, their 6-year old Doberman Pinscher. Duchess was certainly one of the nicest Dobermans if not the nicest dog I have ever had the opportunity to meet.
Humming birds were everywhere and definitely not afraid of humans. They would fly right up to you and hover in front of your face.
The room more than met my requirements. There was a coffeemakers with mini-toaster oven, a microwave and a mini-refrigerator. And a small table and chairs. PERFECT.
You could walk out in the desertt from the motel and it was a very short walk to Christmas Circle where the Farmers’ Market was held every Friday morning as well as other community events.
If you’re planning a trip to Borrego Springs I strongly recommend the Borrego Springs Motel. Be sure to check out their website:
