This is a very clean and attractive property in a not so clean and attractive town. Great rates. Super friendly staff. Greeted with big smiles by front desk gals at check in and check out. Had a "To Go" bag at check out with a bottle of water, orange, and a granola bar in it at check out. Nice Touch!

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 31 January 2017 via mobile

Staying a week here in Calexico. Had a little problem with first room, air condition wasn't working, and little feet jumping off beds above us on next floor. Called downstairs and had everything handled with a new, quiet, third floor room in no time at all. Hotel has all the perks tired travelers want, HBO, Showtime, and microwave, fridge, lots...

I usually steer away from Best Westerns since most are old and outdated. Not this one - everything is fairly new and clean, clean, clean! I would recommend this property and stay there again. The only con was complimentary internet - so slow my attachments could not load.

Good hotel, great value, friendly staff. Central to the city. Despite being next to the highway, it is not noisy. The hotel fills up quickly so you should make reservations. Only drawback which may not matter to some, is the hallways can feel stuffy especially on a hot day.

John Jay in Calexico is a nice quiet place to stay. It is affordable and centrally located to shopping and dining establishments. The hotel is near to both border gateways. Also, parking is available and is particularly easy for handicapped guests. The breakfast menu is simple but hearty with a combination of warm and cold foods.

A friendly staff who always greets us with a smile, a fresh and clean room, a quiet night adding to the solitude of our sleep makes this a welcome location to pause on our journey. Their Web site rate was best as well!

We often stop here on our way to Los Algadones. The staff is very friendly. The rooms are moderately upscale. The breakfast is above average. There are a number of nearby restaurants and a movie complex.

As other reviews state, if you find yourself in Calexico, this is a good option. I had a quick one night stay and it was just fine, clean and comfortable. The gym is small but I appreciated it being there. I also really appreciated the complimentary printing at the business center. I saw a lot of off road vehicles in...

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
