Checked it at 9:45pm and there was a party going on in the lobby you could hear form my room, 11:30 party still going, 12:30am call to front desk and was lied to "oh they're guest checking in for the night" 1:30 call to front desk - more lies! 3:45 noise finally stopped. 2 hour of sleep for $80+ dollars...

The hotel was clean but very dated. The vent fan in the bathroom sounded like a helicopter circling. The staff was ok. The breakfast needs improvement. For location is convenient to travelers for a one night stay.

Very clean and comfortable hotel. Location is great, near lots of food options and one exit from the mall. Breakfast is hot continental and is pretty good to get your day started. Always love staying at this one when we visit family.

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...
