    A good place to stay in Borrego Springs

    We enjoyed our stay at Palm Canyon Hotel. The room was more than adequate; it was clean, the bed was comfortable and the staff was friendly and helpful. We only stayed two nights, so we didn't really have a chance to use the amenities of the pool, spa, etc. but we saw that the facilities could allow for a nice, leisurely and relaxing visit. Next time…

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    It was a very nice experience.... with the exception of early checkout. It was quite inconvenient to have to leave by 10 in the morning.

    Don't stay in a 1st floor room

    Pro Staff Food Saloon Con You can hear everything in the room. No insulation. We were on first floor and you can hear people walking above you as if the ceiling was going to fall. I'd stay there again, but only in a corner room on the second floor.

    Needs an upgrade!

    I remember staying at this resort when I was a kid, about 20 years ago. Since then they have re painted the exterior and updated some flooring and linens however the buildings are clearly in very old condition. You can hear all the plumbing in rooms that are attached, and the air conditioning is way too loud to sleep over. In addition the stairs to the upper level rooms are not well lit and dangerous. The plumbing in the shower was so old I had to switch rooms because I could not control the hot and cold water. The staff is very helpful and the grounds are still very beautiful. In such a small town I would love for this resort to get the upgrade it deserves so families can still come visit and enjoy their stay at a reasonable cost.
