This is one of the most pleasant properties I have stayed in. The staff is the greatest asset they are all Owsome! The AC was a little noisy but worked well. Loved the peppers in the scrambled eggs in the morning!

I travel all over CA for work, and I often stay at BW because of their consistent quality. I often work in El Centro, and the John Jay Inn there wins for my favorite BW. The staff is fantastic and they always take great care of me and my colleagues. The rooms have been recently remodeled, so everything looks new,...

I got a good room near the ice and vending machines and near the front desk. I travel alone and safety is always on my mind. My accommodations were comfortable, clean, and relaxing. I felt safe. The location was close to restaurants, gas stations, and the interstate highway.

The John Jay is a very nice hotel. The pool is awesome! They just need to stock pool towels. They didn't have any. The hotel was going through a frontal renovation and when it is completed it will be beautiful. Breakfast was good. This Best Western was consistent with the brand. I would return if in the area

I stay here almost every month for one or two nights each visit. The General Manager, Alex and receptionist, Vanessa are always great. My room is ready even if I need to check in early. The hotel is close to restaurants and the mall. The hotel rooms are very nice and the front desk area, etc have been totally freshened...

Stayed in a room with two queen beds. The room has a terrible layout. The table is so close to the dresser and microwave stand as to be almost impossible to get into the charts. Also if you are at the table you cannot watch the TV as the other chair blocks it. As far as any work at the...

I've stayed at this hotel several times and have not been disappointed. Rooms are clean, updated and staff is friendly. The complimentary breakfast was more than just pastry. I would recommend for anyone traveling to El Centro, CA.

This is an easy get on and off the freeway location. There is an IHOP out front if you don't want the hotel breakfast or wake up too late. There is also an In-N-Out right next to it for other quick bites. I like Best Westerns. They are affordable and do what they can to be consistent in comfort and...
