My wife and I travel to Calexico weekly and tried this property a few months back. You might think you wouldn't find 5 Star accommodations and service in Calexico. You would be wrong. We have stayed here many times now. And each and every time, Maria and the entire staff treat us like family. They always make us feel welcome,...

We had a nice stay here. We enjoyed using the hot tub associated with the pool. Our room was fine with no problems. The breakfast was the usual hotel fare, nothing special but nothing wrong either. The front desk staff was friendly.

When we arrived the hotel was completely booked except for one suit! It was fairly priced and very nice and we would book that again. We always stay here the night before we cross the Mexico borer for our winter stay in San Felipe.

I stayed one night before my GOES Global Entry interview and this was a great option in Calexico. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. The room was very large and clean. The bed was pretty comfortable. Air conditioning was a bit loud but worked well. Breakfast is included. Typical hotel/motel breakfast options: mass produced eggs, bacon, toast, cereal, yogurt,...

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.

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
