This was our first time in the area and we had a terrific stay. I was traveling with my five-year-old son and he had a blast. The room was clean, the staff was friendly, the best was comfy and the breakfast was nice, too. Plus, there are lots of great places to eat nearby. Would definitely stay again.

Great place to stay. Comfortable rooms, nice pool, and a very good breakfast. I would definitely stay here again, and recommend it to my friends. Easy access to the highway, and easy to find. Pleasant friendly, and helpful employees. Dining and shopping is within walking distance.

The hotel doesn't offer a whole lot of bells and whistles, but that is not surprising given that it is is in Calexico. What it does offer is a clean room with a friendly staff. I will definitley stay there when I'm in Calexico in the future.

When in Calexico on business, the John Jay Inn is one of my go to hotels. I've been staying here off and on since they've opened and am impressed with the high standards that have been maintained especially lately, it seems that the amenities have been upped.

Staff always helpful/friendly. Rooms consistently clean/comfortable. Perfect location just off Hwy 86 before you enter Calexico, with Applebee's and Denny's walking distance, and Walmart across the hwy if you need anything. Next door is Holiday Inn Express - weird chemical odors and no mirror in room. This place totally smoke-free, mirror in room convenient, just dependable overall. I stay here... More

We stayed one night and found this Best Western very clean with friendly helpful staff who helped with discounts. The room was rather large and attractively decorated including breakfast, pool, Jacuzzi, and workout room.

Stayed 4 nights for business purposes. Rooms are nice, staff is excellent. Everything is great except the Internet. It is extremely slow. Less than 2 meg. Wireless speed is usually not that good in a hotel. However I was using the hard wired Internet jack and it was still bad. It should be speedy using the data jack.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Best Western John Jay Inn in Calexico opened in 1998 and the hotel staff has been trained to maintain the high level of standards you expect when staying with Best Western to assure that your stay will be as comfortable as possible. In the Imperial Valley in the southernmost part of California, just across the border from Mexicali, Baja California, Mexico, lies Calexico, a delightful multi-cultural community with a small town lifestyle and a history rich in agriculture. This area has greatly benefited from the international trade that has developed south of the border over the past three decades. ... more   less
