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...

El Centro isn't exactly a destination for recreation, but I teach here several times a year and always stay at this Best Western. They are in the process of remodeling it and even before it was in pretty good shape. The staff is very helpful and friendly and the rooms are quiet and comfortable. The only thing I wish the...

This hotel provides a good value - nice size room and friendly front desk staff. But be prepared for a slow and spotty wifi connection. Also, the TV connection would not stay on. When we mentioned it to the front desk, they said that they were in the midst of changing the service provider, but who knows? Good hotel when...

While traveling from Arizona to San Diego, we stayed here and was very satisfied with the service and comfort of the room. Even though there was construction going on the hotel, we had a very comfortable night. Parking wasn't the greatest because most of the area was fenced off.

I decided to take my wife along on this trip and it worked out very well. I have stayed at many hotels in my years and I would have to rate this as one of the best. I will be returning to Best Western John Jay Inn, El Centro.
