First of all, you're four blocks from the US / Mexican border. How cool is that? You're also next door to the Mexican Consulate - you might find that handy. The room is clean but small. It does have a microwave stacked on the fridge and a coffee maker, but there is no table to do work at. You can...

We checked into a room after having found out our reservation was somehow missing, even though we booked it through Priceline she said her computer blocked it out? Anyways, we left after 45 minutes because there was a LIZARD running around our room, btw it was in our bed, after heading back to the front office we were informed we...

California Suites is a comfortable, air conditioned, friendly bargain motel that is quiet and safe. I enjoyed the armchair, coffee maker and quality mattress. The owners are friendly and the rooms are decorated nicely with hot showers.

We arrived in the dark so pulled into the first place we came across. The receptionist was very helpful, however when we got to the room we were horrified. There were no face washers or hand towels, light globes missing form bedside lights, chairs filthy, no breakfast. Beds were clean though. In fairness to the receptionist (the previous day a...

Thank you for the review, and would like to apologize for your dissatisfaction with your stay. We always try to make sure that the rooms have everything in order. As for the chair with the stain we are replacing the chair, we just had new carport, tiles, and paint work done in the last two months so have to get...

If you are looking for a place to sleep in Calexico or El Centro this is the place for you; if you are coming in from Mexico you can even walk to it. It is across the street from the city hall, so there is a guard outside during business hours. It is also across the street from the bank...

My husband and I stayed here for six weeks. The rates were very reasonable, rooms very clean, owners very professional and nice, it was so quiet, pool was very clean and nice for the hot Calexico weather. You should choose this motel before going anywhere else in Calexico. Not only did we have such a pleasant stay, but we have...

The room was dirty, the beds were smaller than advertised, the bathroom door did not close, the electricity was not working in all the outlets, lighting was poor and the air-conditioning was so loud we could not sleep.

This review is form 2010 when the motel was called the Camino Real Inn. The motel is under new ownership and is now called the California Suites Motel as of November 2012. So please come and stay with us and see the difference.
