Of all the hotels in Imperial County, this is one of them. The amenities are adequate, rooms are spacious, clean, cool and quiet. The dining area is a bit small compared to other BW's I've stayed at, but I still always manage to get a seat. Decent restaurants in the same parking lot is a plus.

I only had to spend one night in the hotel. The room looked clean, but it was one of those places where when you check under the bed to see if you forgot anything, you realize that they do not clean as well as you might hope.

This hotel is less than 10 minutes from the Mexican boarder crossing. The hotel is really clean with acceptable service. The internet is very slow and unreliable. The free internet computer is far out of day running windows XP, this was also unreliable.

Stayed for one night during the month of May 2015 and was delighted by the room amenities and comfortable bed. Small sitting area was nice to come back to after having spent the evening shopping at the local shopping mall. Morning breakfast was adequate. Lots of parking with an IHOP next door. Right off the freeway.

This was a very relaxing, clean, and nice hotel. The AC worked well and was quiet and the bed was fairly comfortable. I loved the eggs and hashbrowns at breakfast.I will stay there again next time that I am in the area.

Everyone on the staff was so friendly and helpful. They went out of their way to make sure my stay was enjoyable. Plenty of free parking available. Lots of places to eat within walking distance. Television had lots of channels available.
