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.

This was the first time I stayed at a Best Western, ever. Boy have I missed out. Very comfortable and great staff. Looking forward to making this Best Western and the rest of their locations as part of my travel plans.

We had an outstanding stay here during our Christmas vacation while visiting family. The service and personal care given to us by the young lady at the desk during the late shift "Meria" was magnificent. The lady in charge of the complimentary breakfast "Marlen" is excellent and super sweet. I have family in the area and will absolutely stay here...

I've stayed there twice recently, and it's been a very pleasant stay both times. The rooms are clean. The shower has plenty of hot water. And the staff is very helpful and friendly. The breakfast space is small and the choices are limited, but the food is good just the same. I'm been making periodic trips to Mexicali for some...

Very clean hotel, friendly staff, decent included breakfast and comfy beds. 1 star taken off due to rather poor parking. Lot was filled with trucks and trailers leaving few spots left. Night manager was nice enough to move his own personal vehicle elsewhere to allow me to park.

Good place to stay. Breakfast area very small and sometimes gets crowded. Overall quiet and pleasant. Rooms very clean. Hot water is generated quickly and TV is good size and quality. More quiet rooms away from lobby.

For a last minute stay it was great and the price even better. Only thing was that since it was right next to lobby and reception area in the morning it was noisy with morning breakfast, other than that it was great.

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
