The rooms look like they are from the 1980's. No extra wall outlets to charge a phone and laptop. The microwave was broken as well as the coffee maker. Without a door to the bathroom sink, every time it is used, the light bothers a person sleeping. No DVD player with the TV. If you are in a pinch, and...

We stayed here as a stop over on our trip from NY to Florida. Check in was very quick and smooth, price was good $87 for the night. The hotel is set up like old fashion motel style. You park your car right outside your door, which I think is great. The room was very neat and clean and had...

They were super rude to me and made me feel VERY unwelcome. I don't recommend this place at all! I was only staying for one day and they made it clear they didn't want my business. Yes it was very inexpensive but for a female being alone I did not feel safe or welcome there.

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...
