Staff was GREAT!! Good food and coffee!! Room was clean too!! Easy to find.. but a little out of the way for our time in the desert.. not the fault of the hotel. Newspapers were free to use. Thanks again!!

A helpful desk clerk, a very clean room and a good night's sleep. What more could you ask for in Calexico. Really enjoyed the stay but this trip advisor posting has an idiotic minimum of 200 characters so I will just add that trip advisor is pretty damn stupid.

We were tired when we arrived and were greeted with a pleasant smile from a professional appearing man. He quickly got us registered and was very helpful with questions. When we passed by in the lobby, he and the staff ensured that we were happy, comfortable and had everything we needed. It was affordable and very clean! I loved how clean and well kept this location is and the friendliness of the staff. We will definitely be returning.

The John Jay was selected for this trip because of my past experiences using Best Western Hotels. I found it to be a very nice newer hotel, reasonably priced and of better value than some other hotels under this banner. The room was clean, quiet and comfortable. I was a little disappointed in the breakfast, mostly due to a small number of options and the quality of the eggs. But I was satisfied and felt it was fully within my expectations. I would not hesitate to visit here again and am very comfortable recommending it to anyone else visiting the area.

I traveled to El Centro on business and looked for a Best Western to sta in. I saved over $100.00 staying at the BW in Calexico which is only about 5 miles to El Centro. Room was very clean and the bed was comfy. Internet was good enough for work, Breakfast was good if you are on the go. What I liked was it was walking distance to shopping and places to eat. The manager and staff were very courteous and friendly. Not a bad place to stay. Good job!

I was here last week for business and chose this property because of the positive reviews. It doesn't hurt their business that they offer the most competitive room rates for the best one or two places to stay in Calexico! The staff are exceptionally friendly and super convenient to nearly anything in town. I'd stay here again without hesitation!

Very clean, very comfortable and a very convenient place to stay in Calexico. No complaints at all on our behalf. We will definately consider the John Jay if we need to stay in Calexico anytime again.
