“Frequent traveler to the area”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

The John Jay Inn/Best Western in El Centro is excellent. I've stayed at a lot of hotels in the area and settled on this one for my monthly trips to the area. It is close to restaurants and malls and other cities in the Imperial Valley. It's located about 1 hour from Yuma, AZ and 2 hours from San Diego, CA The staff are outstanding. They always go out of their way to make sure my stay is pleasant. There have been times I needed to change rooms or check in early and they always were happy to help me.

The hotel has a kinda old western fasade; making it look a little outdates. But inside the rooms are decent size making it pleasant on the eyes. The rooms are in good shape could use a little sprucing up the beds (mine had divots) but over all it was a good stay

Due to family business I have stayed at the John Jay/Best Western hotel at least once a month in 2013. The staff are excellent and go beyond what anyone should ever expect. The staff are friendly, the rooms are well furnished and clean and the hotel is centrally located in El Centro...close to restaurants, malls, etc. The price per night is excellent compared to other higher end hotels as this one is.

This mistakenly got put under Fairfield Inn even though I'm sure I originally wrote it under Best Western where it should be ... Price seemed a little high for the desert in the summer and total experience not up to other Best Western standards. Staff seemed to be just going thru the motions ... maybe it was the heat?? 110 the day I got in. Internet access required watching a commercial ... I have seen big promotional pages but not a full on non-hotel video commercial and then the hotel promotion page. Room was average with a smallish TV. Breakfast room was very small with only average at best offerings. Bins that small coffee flavoring cups were in were very sticky as if not cleaned for a while.

This hotel was very convenient for all of us and close to several restaurants. We had to change/switch rooms midway through our stay and the staff were beyond great in meeting our needs. The weather was hot so having a pool to use was appreciated. I recommend this hotel for either business or pleasure trips.

From the front desk to the cleaning crew, everyone greeted us with smiles and friendly hellos. Rooms were very clean as usual. Saturday morning breakfast was great with scrambled eggs and sausage. (Helpful for guests who may be gluten intolerant or paleo diet followers)
We will be back! :)

Easy location to access - IHOP on same lot, with many more food establishments nearby - very dove hunter friendly w/cleaning tables and shade all set up and ready for free use! It was way over 100 w/high humidity outside, but inside was cool - even the hallways. The staff is very friendly and eager to make your stay comfortable, too!
