We initially reserved a room nearby at the Barbara Worth "Resort" but they refused to allow my service dog into an updated room. Fortunatly for us, the Vacation Inn had one room left! I don't know how they did it but when they remodeled they made these the quietest hotel rooms we've ever stayed in. Everything was clean and fresh.... More

Thank you for the kind words, we are happy to hear you enjoyed the remodel! Although we are a limited service hotel, we do try to go the extra mile from hot breakfast to our little sports-bar lounge with a free beer to Free WiFi and accepting your pets, because they are also a part of the family. We hope... More

An older facility that has been updated. Clean room, comfortable bed - most important . Only complaints were pillows and thin towels - drives me nuts for the small additional cost to provide decent pillows and towels. We would definitely stay again though.

I always stay at Vacation Inn when I'm in El Centro. Over the last several years the hotel has improved their beds and linens, although the pillows would be my next suggestion to improve. I've even seen them washing their comforters, not many hotels do this! Nona at the front desk is super and the front desk staff do their... More

Came here for a hunting trip and took two rooms and the service here was great and the people were very friendly. The rooms were very clean and the beds were also nice and comfy. Overall I would highly recommend this hotel to anybody.

The saving grace for this hotel is the low rate, like similar hotels they feel the competition of interior corridor properties of newer build date and need to use their rate as a selling point. Fine in El Centro just off the highway. Room 210 smelled good and was clean, only thing was there were no baseboards installed, giving it... More

Vacation Inn was a perfect stop for us on our journey around the perimeter of the U.S. The staff were very kind. The room was clean. They have a pool, although we did not have time to swim. And the complementary breakfast was delicious. They have 5 choices for breakfast. Eggs w/ bacon & sausage, eggs w/ pancakes, chorizo egg... More

Budget hotel very close to the highway. The room was spacious and reasonably, the linen and towels very good for the type of hotel. I expend the night there to visit Anza Borrego State Park, which is truly fantastic!

Clean rooms and friendly staff. Price was good plus we got free breakfast and 1 free drink ticket everyday. Flew home for 2 weeks and came back to stay and they held our luggage in storage for us. Beats paying bag fees on airlines. Will stay here again.
