A friend and I stayed here after reading the two reviews on this motel. The reason for the stay was to get dental work done in Mexicali which is a short walk over the border from Villa Sur.
Previously we stayed at the Lucerna in Mexicali which is charming, with great food, several pools and also a bargain. However, we did not want to wait in line to get back to the US this time. Another option would be walk over the border and take a taxi to the Lucerna. We also stayed at the Holiday Inn Express which is several miles from the border and about twice the price of the Villa Sur.
The hotel does not have a website and we wanted to see a room before booking so we walked in, looked, and took a room. Price with tax and a continental breakfast was $52.50! The room was spotless, the TV worked, we had two double beds, and the room was quiet. While the property looks mid-century, the windows have been upgraded with new double-panes.
I would recommend this property to anyone who wants a bargain in downtown Calexico. The telephone number is [-].
