Found this place for my birding group of 16 people. After reading the Tripadvisor reviews, I decided we should give it a try. We put all the singles in the motel rooms....6 singles, 6 motel rooms. Then we had five duplexes, each for two people who were sharing a room. I should have asked which units had an extra bed, because although they all have a queen sized bed, some only have a fold-out sofa in the living room, and others also have an extra twin-sized bed in the bedroom. We had to do a little shuffling and trading, as some were married couples and some were just two friends who agreed to share a room. Only one person had to ask for an additional room, as she did not want to sleep on a sofa-bed. They did give us a break on the extra unit, and I feel it was my fault for not getting more details. In spite of this, we all found the place to be clean and comfortable. The grounds are great for birding, and we all found several species of birds there. The location was great for Anza Borrego and we made several short trips to birding locations during our two night stay. I would recommend it to anyone who doesn't require luxury!
