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

This hotel provides a clean, quiet, comfortable place to stay. There is a decent continental breakfast. Fast food and sit down restaurants are available nearby. Checking in and out is easy and the staff is always pleasant. There is a room to print out copies such as your travel information or a few business copies.

Stayed here several times over the past five years. Find it very attractive, extremely comfortable rooms that are clean with Wi-Fi, bottled water, hair dryer, iron, etc. Love the full morning breakfast and it is served early enough to still get to an early morning appointment. Morning desk clerk and staff were very friendly. Evening desk clerk left a bit... More

Good, solid Best Western Hotel as you might expect from this mega chain. Friendly, accommodating and clean. Being on a main road and at a fairly centrally located intersection, there are plenty of food choices within a mile or so. Ask for a room away from the highway, where the noise level is a bit better. The breakfast was the... More

When things get expensive in Yuma,,, consider staying here. Pricing is reasonable, the place is very clean, the breakfast is great and the neighborhood has restaurants, shopping center and a big movie house.
