Best Western John Jay Inn

Reviewed June 20, 2014

This hotel is pretty well off the beaten path and is fairly new looking. Breakfast was good, rooms were clean and well kept. Staff was friendly and helpful. Price for a room was 20% lower than other hotels in the area, why pay more, drive the 1o miles from El Centro. Internet was good.

This hotel is located far enough away from the highway to qualify for my most important attribute for a hotel: QUIET. I liked the parking lot, too, designed to put as many cars close to the front or entrance as possible. Bed very comfortable, room well appointed. Breakfast nothing special but adequate.

this hotel is a good choice if you want cleanliness, great staff and free breakfast. But if you want shower gel and plastic shower curtain, not so much. But I have to give it a great review. It was just fine and such a value.

Room Tip: Not a great view in 211, center of the hotel, but great air conditioning

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.
