Used the two room suite with a king bed. Room was nice, but hot water was 99 degrees at the very hottest setting, and the hot tub was broken. Disappointing to say the least, as we did a lot of walking during the day. The room had an odor that couldnt be gotten rid of - poor choice of cleaning... More

Not much to choose in Calexico but the Best Western is modern, clean and well appointed. The welcome is very friendly and they give you a bottle of drinking water. The breakfast is surprisingly good given the tiny room it's served in. Sadly the pool is unheated and despite an air temperature close to 90F in mid-November the water was... More

Very friendly staff & clean rooms; walking distance to Denny's, Carrow's, Applebee's, and a shopping center. Conveniently located on highway on your right as you enter the town. The Holiday Inn Express next door costs more!

We stayed prior to entering Mexico to stay with family to see what Calexico was like. Very comfortable accommodations and enjoyed the Olympic sized pool and spa. Next time we will stay longer and go visit the Blue Angels flight practice.
