“John Jay Inn, Calexico, CA - Nice place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

The John Jay was selected for this trip because of my past experiences using Best Western Hotels. I found it to be a very nice newer hotel, reasonably priced and of better value than some other hotels under this banner. The room was clean, quiet and comfortable. I was a little disappointed in the breakfast, mostly due to a small number of options and the quality of the eggs. But I was satisfied and felt it was fully within my expectations. I would not hesitate to visit here again and am very comfortable recommending it to anyone else visiting the area.

I traveled to El Centro on business and looked for a Best Western to sta in. I saved over $100.00 staying at the BW in Calexico which is only about 5 miles to El Centro. Room was very clean and the bed was comfy. Internet was good enough for work, Breakfast was good if you are on the go. What I liked was it was walking distance to shopping and places to eat. The manager and staff were very courteous and friendly. Not a bad place to stay. Good job!

I was here last week for business and chose this property because of the positive reviews. It doesn't hurt their business that they offer the most competitive room rates for the best one or two places to stay in Calexico! The staff are exceptionally friendly and super convenient to nearly anything in town. I'd stay here again without hesitation!

Very clean, very comfortable and a very convenient place to stay in Calexico. No complaints at all on our behalf. We will definately consider the John Jay if we need to stay in Calexico anytime again.

If you need the internet ,don't stay there it takes forever to get from one page to another.Everything else was just like all others of this price. If your here on business it would be OK because you won't need the TV. You will never find anything you like. Nothing you watch at home.

Apart from the confusing vending machines the stay at this Best Western was clean and comfortable and easy to get to and from. Though close to route 111, the room was quiet. Not a destination point but a nice resting place if you are passing through.

This place has a great location near Walmart, movies and Applebee's and decent amenities. the breakfast is OK but the space is way too small. rooms are large but very economy. For a better experience and a cut above, spend just a little more for the Holiday Inn up the street.
