Check in to room. Stayed at Mesa The week before and I was happy with that.. Mesa was full and the agent on the phone gave us El Cajon location. I have to go back on March 21,2017 back to that job in Lemon Grove. I hope Mesa Best Western is not full..

This summer, my family and I decided to go to San Diego for our small, but well deserved get-away, so, I booked at Best Western taking advanced of their promotional rates. Well, it has been the best decision made ever. From our quick check-in to our fast check-out we felt appreciated and welcomed. The receptionist accommodated our needs providing us...

First of all- my initial reservation was cancelled without any reason. I have no cancellation confirmation via email. Only had my email confirming my reservation! Second- the website lacked actual pictures of the room for the type I selected: King/Suite. I was not happy with the size of the suite and very cramped when the sofabed is being used. The...

Was very impressed with the friendliness of the staff. Felt safe there, just stayed for one night. the air conditioner took some tweaking, but when I finally got it set to a comfortable level, I slept like a baby. All motel beds tend to be a tad on the hard side for my tastes, but for the price, it was...

Best western is always a comfortable stay away from home. The only issue I've had is some don't take cash at all or prepaid visa/debt card s. Otherwise breakfeasts are almost always fulfilling and rooms as well as pools great cleanand comfortable! Jet tubs are the best!

We flew in for a family emergency. The staff was helpful. The room was clean and a very comfortable bed. We rested well even though our emotional turmoil. The pool was bus enough for 6 kids. The breakfast was great and filling. We plan to use this hotel again.

I am being generous to give this motel an average rating. The main reason being that we had a quiet room - even though it back up to the freeway and freeway onramp. Bed was good - so a good night sleep. Last cleaning of the room was terrible - rug was vacuumed in a very hit-and-miss fashion. Clock did...

This hotel is within an easy 20 minute drive of downtown San Diego on most weekends. The hotel is a little older but the staff does a good job keeping it up and nice. The breakfast is simple but good and if its not what you are looking for there is a Denny's across the street. Overall my stay was...

After trying to find a last minute hotel in the San Diego area on a very busy weekend, that wasn't a flea-bag hotel, we found The Best Western Continental Inn, El Cajon. We were very pleased with the friendly welcome by the staff and the cleanliness of our room. The room was super clean and the beds were very comfortable....
