but don't drink the water. Seriously. the water had such a pungent odor I had to stock up on bottled water. Water was so bad I couldn't stand to take a shower. the cold tap was just as hot as the hot taps. Also they share a parking lot with an IHOP, and it's hard to park close by. Our... More

Had to stay in El Centro for a night while on a road trip to visit family out of state. This hotel is conveniently located right off the freeway and has a sparkling swimming pool to escape the heat. Although limited, their breakfast buffet is good and they even offer freshly made waffles. Our room was very clean, comfy and... More

Overall, the hotel was fine. They apparently decided to cut back on providing an early breakfast for the hunters, which was disappointing. This was probably the hotels biggest day of the year and providing breakfast at 4:30am instead of 6am meant that probably 90 percent of the hotel guests were gone and it saved them some money.

The only reason for being in El Centro was to go dove hunting . This hotel welcomes dove hunters and provides an area for dove cleaning. The room clean and comfortable. Right next door is House of Pancakes and Panda Express and other fast food places nearby. The air conditioner worked well with outside temps over 110 degrees. Will stay... More

The John Jay Inn in El Centro is a nice, comfortable place to stay. The Hotel Staff do everything they can to make you feel welcome. The Front Desk, housekeeping staff do all possible to make you feel at home in their hotel.

Family of 4 stayed here one night on our way to the baja to visit some friends during spring break. It was bad from the start. Very dirty, hidden charges, broken AC, no shampoo or soap, the list goes on. I wasn't expecting much, but the attitude of the staff was extremely rude and in the end when I kindly... More

there are not many choices in el Centro. This property is very clean with very friendly staff and good beds. So why the 3 star? I stayed for a few weeks in a 2 room suite while working in El Centro. The rooms were large but the furniture was barely acceptable for the nightly fee. there is no excuse for... More

I arrived and was greeted very professionally, the staff completed my check in quickly and were very friendly. The room was clean and well kept I recommend this hotel if you are traveling through El Centro.
