“Hunter Friendly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

No issues with staff bringing our hunting gear and firearms in and out of the hotel. You can bring your hunting dog for an additional $20 per night. The in room refridge and microwave made it convenient for 4am breakfast if you brought food, and the freezer worked great to re-freeze my blue ice packs for each day.

I have stayed at this Best Western for many years now and have always experienced great customer service. On one occasion I stayed at the other hotel next to Best Western but it coudn't compare that's why I always come back to this one. The staff at Best Western really makes you feel welcome and that's always a plus.

I've stayed at a few different places in Calexico and this by far the best. The rooms are clean, no bugs like the other hotels in town. Free breakfast is great! Great service. Will not stay anywhere else in the valley.

Room Tip: Book a room early because this place fills up fast!

I've stayed her many times, between one and three night stays. The staff is SOOO customer-service oriented. Everyone is friendly, helpful, and goes out of their way to make guests comfortable. The free breakfast is very good and offers lots of choice, not like some that give you a banana and yogurt or a bagel and consider it breakfast.

The rooms are super clean and spacious. The wi-fi is a nice feature.

Stay here, you won't regret it.

I have now stayed at this hotel several times and have been very pleased with all aspects of the facility, each and every stay. The rooms, common areas, lobby, etc., are all extremely clean. The staff is excellent, I have dealt primarily with Ayadett and Rosario, and all others are sure to say hello etc in passing, all are very helpful. The breakfast is also excellent, fresh, and has several options to satisfy anyone, at no extra charge. In short, this is an outstanding hotel with excellent staff and I would highly recommend it to anyone staying in Calexico.
