For the opening of dove hunting season this hotel was booked solid. The friendly staff welcomes hunters and provides dove cleaning facilities. It is common to see guests carrying shot guns and hunting gear dressed in full camo going to and from vehicles to room. The room was clean and comfortable with good air conditioning running 24hrs. The full breakfast... More

Needs some small improvements to the property. Very clean rooms with a comfortable bed. A/C's are out of date and need to be upgraded. Printer in business area was out of service. Had to wake up the gentleman at 430 to check out. Rooms are very clean and newly updated. Average fitness center and pool. Good breakfast items overall.

The room was very comfortable with all the amenities a traveler may want or need during his/her trip. I especially liked the room having a microwave oven and refridgerator. The internet also worked immediately and connection was never interupted. The room was also available at a very affordable price. I would most likely used this hotel again in the future... More

I seldom stay at Best Western unless there is a promotion. Now there are offering 1000 point extra and that's why I stayed there. It takes forever to earn enough points for a free night even for a diamond member like me. The best programs are Hyatt and Sheraton (Sheraton). I am a Hyatt Diamond and SPG Platinum, and IHG...

I like to stay here when in the Calexico or El Centro area. The hotel is nice and clean and the rates are good. The have a hot breakfast. It is not the greatest; all of the food is I'm sure prefabricated and warmed up at the hotel. But for the price it will do. There is a Denny's across... More

Our little league stayed here for a recent tournament and was so impressed with everything....the breakfast, the pool, the fitness room. The rooms, lobby, hallways and even the parking lot were all spotless! Thank you Sylvia for making this an easy trip to coordinate!

I stayed here for one night on a business trip and it was a great night. The room was clean & spacious. The hotel offers all amenities and a comprehensive breakfast. The John Jay Best Western hotel has everything you need for a stay in Calexico.

This hotel is a bit off the beaten track of I8, about six miles south of the freeway which puts it a little out of the way. However, it is priced less than the John Jay Inn that is to the west and near the I8 freeway and is every bit as comfortable. The surrounding area is economically depressed but... More
