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 came to Mexicali and found this is a great hotel, great breakfast and great customer service they were very attentive and helpful in recommending us places to go have dinner. Great service the hotel rooms are very quiet and clean. I would come back to this hotel.

Stayed here with my partner and two children over the weekend and was really surprised by the Best Western John Jay Inn. This was my first visit to Calexico and while there's not a lot to do in Calexico besides shopping at an outlet mall, seeing a movie at the cinema next door ($5 admission or $7 for 3D), or... 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.

This modern Hotel is a great destination, or stop-off on a longer trip to Mexico. In our case we stayed overnight while traveling between San Felipe, Mexico and Los Angeles. We arrived at 4am and were accommodated with the perfect room. Free Breakfast and a nice pool and spa made our short visit perfect. Knowledgeable staff pointed us to shopping... More

This hotel is pretty well off the beaten path and is fairly new looking. Breakfast was good, rooms were clean and well kept. Staff was friendly and helpful. Price for a room was 20% lower than other hotels in the area, why pay more, drive the 1o miles from El Centro. Internet was good.

This hotel is located far enough away from the highway to qualify for my most important attribute for a hotel: QUIET. I liked the parking lot, too, designed to put as many cars close to the front or entrance as possible. Bed very comfortable, room well appointed. Breakfast nothing special but adequate.

this hotel is a good choice if you want cleanliness, great staff and free breakfast. But if you want shower gel and plastic shower curtain, not so much. But I have to give it a great review. It was just fine and such a value.

Staff was GREAT!! Good food and coffee!! Room was clean too!! Easy to find.. but a little out of the way for our time in the desert.. not the fault of the hotel. Newspapers were free to use. Thanks again!!

A helpful desk clerk, a very clean room and a good night's sleep. What more could you ask for in Calexico. Really enjoyed the stay but this trip advisor posting has an idiotic minimum of 200 characters so I will just add that trip advisor is pretty damn stupid.
