I had the opportunity <grin> to have business in El Centro and wanted to stay somewhere decent. I found this property and booked it without a) knowing the area or b) not having any expectations. I was pleasantly surprised that the staff was knowledgeable and friendly. The rooms had the A/C already blowing (outside was pushing 110 F) and the shades were drawn so the heat wouldn’t penetrate into the room. I was given a room facing the Interstate and didn’t even hear one car during the stay. I would recommend this location if you have to travel I-8 or have work in El Centro. On a side note, I did joke with the front desk about requesting the Presidential suite and the wanted to know if I wanted to reserve it, for only 159.00 a night. I was tempted and visited the suite and it was well laid out and comfortable looking but I passed.
