It's not the best motel, but if you're in Santee this property has good parking, is decently maintained, offers a nice free breakfast and clean pool. It's not kept as well as the Wynn or Venetian but you're in Santee paying a decent rate for a safe, clean place to stay with nice amenities. Owners/operators are somewhat awkward but they...

If you have stayed in El Cajon, Santee, or Lakeside you'll know that there is not much to choose from. Most hotels are old, musty, and not that well cleaned. The BW Santee lodge was cleaner and fresher. We got a suite rather than the regular king bed room. It was clean and quiet. The price was fine. The breakfast...

Room was clean and quiet. The queen beds were made with fresh linens and they were very comfortable. Our room was across from the pool but we heard no noise from the pool equipment. Coffee served with the breakfast is excellent quality; breakfast items were fresh and plentiful. Quick service on check-in and check-out. Easy access to stores and restaurants...

Electrical outlets, especially near the desk need replacement. They do not hold plugs inserted in them. The shower faucet is hard to pull out, is not secured to wall properly and therefore comes out of the wall. The coffee took a turn for the worse since last staying at this hotel.

We stayed here one night for business and it was everything the other reviews said it was. Very clean rooms but short on amenities and nice touches. One of our night stands was just missing and the cabinet under the sink was broken off. Nothing we couldn't live without just glad we didn't pay top dollar for it. Price was...

We needed to be at the San Diego Christian College and this motor lodge was 4 min away. The neighborhood is definitely seedy (lots of bail bonds places), but the motor lodge is well-run and extremely clean.

We were visiting with friends as well as having some business to conduct and found this hotel provided easy access to freeways, restaurants, shopping, etc. The staff was wonderful, and we enjoyed our 6 night stay. The breakfast was good and refilled often. The complimentary computer/printer availability was very helpful. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and the small table...

There aren't many options in Santee for over night lodging. Our son and his family have moved there and we wanted to be close by. This was a convenient location to them and to local shops and restaurants. It is also one of the cheaper option that we feel comfortable staying in. There was nothing special about this place but...

The hotel room was pretty standard for a Best Western, but with a pretty small bathroom. The pool was not heated and was too cold to use. The breakfast was pretty standard, but they did have a waffle maker, which was nice. The bed was also too soft for me, so I had to sleep on the floor (I have...
