I come in 2-3 times each year for the dove season. Staff at the front desk always nice and helpful. Room cleaning excellent. I've been to other motels in the area but John Jay is the best thus far. No need to stay anywhere else. Breakfast is not bad....typical eggs, soggy bacon, waffle maker, breads, fruit, juices and coffee.

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...
