"Challenging visit"

3
Roberta G, Modesto, California 22/08/2019

Our visit here was challenging due to many issues. Our room was 4ft. from the very noisy ice machine which cycled on frequently and was used often by other guests. The first night the toilet leaked. The maintenance man was very friendly and helpful but unfortunately did not adjust the toilet flow correctly so the toilet ran all night the second night. The floor tiles in the shower area were slippery when wet. The bathroom walls had been repaired but never painted. We did appreciate the two chairs and a table. The breakfast room is quite small.

"Not the best Bestwestern Hotel we've been too."

User 05/08/2019

Room was as expected, breakfast the usual fair not a good as some we've been to. The pool was dirty dispite the fact it was supposedly cleaned the day before we arrived. The hot tup was discustingly dirty with what looked like mold or rust, definetly needed to be resurfaced. Noisy a/c unit, had to wear earplugs to sleep.

Nice place. Clean. Comfortable. Very nice staff and service. I like breakfast included. I drink coffee in the morning, a must. My husband doesn't. He doesn't get it. So it's very nice when I can go down and get my coffee. They changed up the meal each morning.

I visit this hotel several times a year to see family in the area. My stays are always so pleasant. The staff if just above and beyond expectation. The room was spotless and the new remodel with wood flooring was wonderful. I never felt cleaner in any hotel than this one. Every day presented a spotless, carefully cleaned room with fresh towels and immaculate bedding. This place rocks!

I looked at all my options in Santee, even though there were a few mixed reviews. I didn't have a single issue. They are still updating a few things on property ( exterior paint on walkways) but the rooms were amazing. This is the first hotel I did Not cringe at when I walked in during my stay in CA. Thank you for the enjoyable stay.

709cheriv, Scottsdale, Arizona 08/06/2019

This motel is an older motel but still quite comfortable. Our room was clean. Beds were comfortable. Breakfast room was clean & had an array of breakfast selections more so than other chain motels. We were a little upset about the overall price as we spent 9 days & the area was not on the beach or near any attractions but what can you say...that's California....high prices!

Clean, quiet and reasonably priced location for parents visiting at San Diego Christian College. Staff is friendly and helpful. Rooms are a little dated but the included breakfast was yummy. The hotel was full and it was quiet. Pool and jacuzzi available but I didn't use because of the bad weather. Am a single traveler and I felt safe. Can walk to nearby Sonics or 7 Eleven. 3rd time staying here. Consistent.

marysP4664TM, Brawley, California 11/05/2019

This was a special surprise and so delighted we have found this gem of a hotel. The speical attention to details in the room and at breakfast were outstanding for his level of hotel. Upon arriving to our room we received a courtersy call to inquire if the room was to our stafistaction. Ample towels, the television remote was sanitized and cleaned and in cloth holder. The room was clean and no visible carpet stains. Bathrom was clean and well-maintained. Staff was helpful and cheerful. When I made the reservations I requested a "quite" room ( which I know is difficult to guarantee), but the reservationist mentioned a few room numbers that would be farther away from the street and said they would call me when one of the rooms were ready and I could come in and check in, as they are unable to guarantee a particular room. WOW! Nothing in life iis 100 percent perfect, but for my visit this property is doing a great job in meeting all the expectations of their guests and that is an extremely difficult task to accomplish!!!

Andrea R, San Diego, California 29/04/2019

I've stayed here twice and each time was pleasant. The staff was friendly and the room was clean. Breakfast was good and the food tasted fresh. Close to the highway, but not too close. Safe area, I would stay again.

"Terrible Experience"

Trek66119628109, Bakersfield, California 19/04/2019

Uncomfortable mattress and pillow; poor paint job; toilet door would not close; lights on timer; no decor; desk clerk accused us of making noise all night, based on next door guest. I'm 87 & my son is 54. We were in beds, trying to sleep. The guest on the other side of this woman told us she had complained about her family also. & that the clerk had knocked on her door in the middle of the night scaring her. The bathroom has a plastic tub insert with no grab bars. The room has 2 queen beds was obviously built for doubles, since there was no room for 2 people to walk around.

BWSantee, General Manager at Best Western Santee Lodge, responded to this review
I am sorry to hear that you encountered issues during your stay with us. Our hotel is undergoing a full room remodel and will be completed in a few weeks. We appreciate your patience with us during this time.

User 11/04/2019

Check in was fast and efficient; breakfast is included. Rooms are clean, but a little shopworn. Location convenient, just off the highway, but there is no road noise. Room has what now seems to be a ubiquitous odor of air freshener, which I don't really like, but which seems to grace every hotel room I have been in lately.

"Best Western in Santee"

5
terrystanger, Agoura Hills, California 14/01/2019

Santee is a good location to visit greater San Diego. This Best Western adjoins next door neighbor “Dougnut” shop that is family owned and offers 24 hrs service including Thrifty Ice Cream, a wide sandwich menu, and Yogart specialty bowls at an excellent price. Costco Gas is “just down the road.” The 52 (East-West) freeway is close, but not audible. Reservations by phone were simple and easy to make and get our AARP discount applied. After a long drive check-in was fast, informative and easy; restroom access a few feet away. The room felt spacious, two queen beds adequate, but are definitely on the firm side. Check out was offered as express, or in person. Parking was good, seemed very safe. We did not use pool or spa, but other guests did. Shower water pressure was strong, water definitely hot enough. Refrigerator was adequate to hold left overs, microwave to reheat. The in-wall air conditioner/heater seemed loud to me, but we are not used to this type of appliance. I would DEFINITELY stay here again.

"Reasonably good and priced hotel for some rest"

flynford, San Jose, California 06/01/2019

I often stay here while visiting some friends and while the decor and amenities are little dated. I've tolerated it for 1 or 2 night stays. The big thing for me is HD picture quality and an array of good channels to watch. For some reason, depending on what part of the hotel you get assigned your experience will vary greatly. Not sure if they've addressed it but I've changed rooms because of it. Never used the pool since usually the time of year I'm down there it's too cold anyway.

BWSantee, General Manager at Best Western Santee Lodge, responded to this review
Thank you for your review. We appreciate your feedback. We have good news! We are going through a remodel and all of our rooms will be upgraded. We look forward to your return.

Sandy T, Antioch, California 04/01/2019

The room was nice and clean though the beds where too hard for my comfort but with several amenities available like soap, tiny bottles of shampoo and conditioner that made up some of the difference. Parking was a bit crowded and the area was quiet and free of crime.Overall it was a great experience but overpriced for what it was.

I prearranged my stay using Best Western rewards for my first night and a rate of less $90/night for the next 2 nights. Access is slightly difficult due to the hotel is on a corner lot of 2 busy streets (Magnolia and Mission Gorge / Woodside.) the direction provided by the hotel's website are excellent. The staff is courteous, friendly, and helpful. There is a pool and spa but no fitness center. Room was clean and the bed comfortable.

got to the hotel early, only live a little more than an hour away. Got checked in and asked to hold our couple of bags which they graciously did. We returned some time later in the evening. The bags had been taken to the room and a Best Western snack bag had been left also. Two waters, ewo bags of chips and nut bars. Room is clean and comfortable. Nice decor, goods sized tv and a guide to the stations in the guest book, thank you.

"RUN DOWN HOTEL..."

11nikkil, Brawley, United States 17/07/2018

My family and I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. The hotel looks nice from the outside however we were very disappointed with our stay over all. It seems the upkeep of the rooms are not being done as they should. Sink was loose and wobbly. After one use, the toilet clogged. A/C unit hadn't been cleaned as the air coming out of it smelled musty. There was several noticeable stains on the carpets. The beds were comfy but the pillow seemed old and very lumpy. In the morning I heard what I thought to be our shower dripping but to my horror it was the ceiling. Water was coming down from the light fixture. The light was on. I quickly turned it off so it wouldn't spark out. I had small children with us. I guess the people up stairs were taking a shower. All our towels got wet and the clothes I had in a bag on the floor were soaked. I called the Front desk to let them know and they took 4 hours to send someone. He showed up at 12:30pm while we were packing to leave. I told him to just forget and to take care of it once we checked out. Staffer John was very nice. I can't say the same for another staffer who calls himself "MO". He has a bit of an attitude and an unwillingness to be helpful. His answer for almost everything is "I don't know"...

santabarbaraserenity, San Diego, California 01/06/2018

I needed a hotel near my house for the night and again chose a Best Western; I am a new fan of Best Westerns because I keep having one good experience after another at each one wherever I am. I made a reservation using my BW Rewards number and got a great deal. Chris, at the front desk when I arrived, was welcoming and accommodating to my request for a second floor room in a quieter area of the hotel. The hotel grounds are immaculate and I love the old style pool in the courtyard set up. The have real flowers in pots on the rails - a beautiful touch unusual for a budget hotel. Their attention to detail is over-the-top! My room was very clean and very comfortable; please remember to leave a tip for your housekeeper. It was nice that there was an envelope in the room for this purpose. Finally, they include a nice breakfast that is just right to get going for the day. BTW, there is a donut shop and 7-11 next door for delicious snacks.

JambonMalain, Virginia 21/05/2018

We stopped here for the night while driving on i95. The front desk and all employees we encountered were very nice and helpful. The pool looked very nice. There is a restaurant across the parking lot that was very convenient and acceptably good. The room was a standard motel room with two large beds. The only problem was it smelled like an old motel room. We sprayed some cologne and that helped a bit; but the room needs new carpets, curtains, bedding and paint to address the root cause. It was nice to be able to park directly in front of the room.

I arrived early, around 12:30 pm, and the staff were very accommodating to allow me to check in to an available room early so that I could shower and freshen up after a long flight from Toronto, before meeting up with my wife and her friend. Parking was free and the free breakfast had a lot of great options like waffles from a waffle maker, sausage patties, scrambled eggs, etc. Rooms were clean and well maintained. The beds were comfortable. Since I booked this hotel as a package with my direct flights to and from Toronto combined with my car rental for 4 days, I do not know the exact rate, however, I can deduce that the hotel rate I got must have been very reasonable for the services I received. Just wanted to say San Diego and Santee are really beautiful locations. Just driving from the airport to this hotel in Santee was a treat in terms of scenery!

"5 Star in Santee ......? DEFINITELY !!"

User 08/04/2018

I called to check availability and Sam was busy with a guest at the desk and asked if he could call me back? Sure enough five minutes later he called and was very friendly and efficient, making our two-room reservation. Upon arrival he was still there and recognized my voice immediately and greeted me with a huge smile. His guest service is impeccable. Having been the CEO of large Resorts, I would be delighted if all or any of my team members behaved like Sam! The rooms are gorgeous, there's a pool and jacuzzi bordered by well maintained hanging flower pots to bring a very pretty look to a dreary downtown Santee street. The building is angled away from the road so the traffic noise is minimal. The rooms are modern and fresh and very comfortable. Free breakfast is also a delight, in a very clean, comfortable dining room. Cannot say enough about this cute BW. So if you have to be in Santee or Lakeside, and need to stay over, I HIGHLY encourage you to stay here!

"The goldilocks location."

5
Q7524WYolivers, Lakewood, United States 08/01/2018

Santee is nestled between Alpine on the east and Pacific Beach and La Jolla on the west. The natives settle there so as to hedge their bets between the brush fires and floods from the foothills and the earthquake-triggered tsunamis from the Pacific Ocean. It is the perfect location to gamble on their survival whatever slings and arrows of outrageous fortune they may face. Colliding asteroids are not considered, most unfortunately.

We stayed in the back section around the pool which was very quiet since no one is swimming this time of year. Front desk staff was very friendly, attentive, helpful and promptly addressed our non working TV when we returned to the room one night. Rooms were clean and well maintained and beds were very comfortable. Included Breakfast provided lots of good options: eggs, oatmeal, cold cereal, yogurt, fresh fruit and great coffee. This was a GREAT value for the money and we'd definitely stay again.

OK, we read all of the reviews and took a chance. Good news: Overall, this is a nice place to stay. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, the place was quiet, and the staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was very basic, cereal and milk, inexpensive muffins or danish, oatmeal, coffee & juice, and, of course, make your own waffles. Overall, we will come back when we visit at Santee again. Easy access, although parking is a little tricky, a very small lot, but still a nice place if you are a Best Western visitor.

I was told there was a one time pet fee of $20.00 before making the reservation. When I arrived it was $20 per night (4 nights). Check-in time was delayed a full hour (4pm instead of 3pm). It is advertised as having a heated pool, it does not. About half of the jets on the spa work. Sausage for breakfast 4 days in a row. Manager would not make the pet fee right even after questioning the employee that said it, but could not remember, because regardless of what was said it was still hotel policy.

BWSantee, Manager at Best Western Santee Lodge, responded to this review
We do apologize for any inconvenience while your stay but as we discussed at check in, I am confident on my employee's knowledge about our pet policy. When you arrived before 3 pm, rooms were ready to check in but it was your decision to wait for ground floor room. We don't advertise that our swimming pool is heated but yes we do have a swimming pool and heated spa that your son used right after check in and he gave me the best compliments about it. I am the manager and I gave you additional discount at check in that you took very happily for your misunderstanding but it seems you rated us because you would not like to pay pet fee based on our policy. We do serve breakfast as per Best Western stranded, and your son's honest opinion was "it could not be better than this breakfast". Again we apologize because our customer is our priority but fairness matters as well.

CraigKJ, Bakersfield, California 28/12/2017

I stayed from Dec. 21st to 28th, 2017 to visit my brother who lives nearby. Positive: 1) Good clean room, good Wi-Fi, flat-screen TV. 2) Small refrigerator and microwave in room. 3) Free breakfast 6AM to 9AM (I think all Best Western hotels offer this). 4) 24-hour convenience store (7-11) one block away within walking distance; 24-hour donut shop 1/2 block away. 5) Good Italian restaurant 2 blocks way (across the street). 6) Light rail station for San Diego MTS system (trolley) is less than a mile away. Negative: 1) Parking is free, but the parking area is small and cramped. 2) The hotel is on a busy street with tricky access if turning left. Four stars. No complaints.

The food was excellent the best of almost any best western hotel I have stayed at.the night clerk was very helpful by helping with our bags as we are all disableable. I will stay at this hotel in the future when I come to town. I wish the prices were a little better as we are far into being well into being seniors..

Reserved Hotel on Bring Fido web page. Cost was $90.00 and $9.90 tax. On arrival was charged additional $22.02 pet fee, they did not honor the 50% discount with Best Western rewards card. Total cost $121.00. This is NOT a $121.00 hotel. Breakfast omelet was cold and hard. Hotel room was not in the level I expect from a Best Western Hotel.

Overall good experience. Very basic room, but it was clean! Bed was a tad bit too firm for me, but I like a soft bed! Breakfast was good, but no bacon. :-( Coffee at breakfast was not good at all, but I'm a coffee snob who like really strong coffee.

The hotel was adequate for a one night stay. The room had a musty smell upon entering room. Left door open for a short while to air out. Bathroom accommodation was a bit tight. The hotel is an older facility, therefore, I can understand. I was there for my granddaughter sport event. The hotel was a 5 minute drive to the athletic location.

This property was terrible and not a Best Western quality. If I were a Best Western I would sell this place. It was noisy from early in the morning until late at night. This particular property left me feeling and safe which made it very difficult to have a good nights sleep. Though the beds were clean, the carpet and over all room cleanliness was poor.

There was no one manning the check in desk upon arrival and no obvious way to contact staff. I was given an uncleaned/possibly occupied room at first, before then being given a room that didn't match my reservation (reserved King, got 2xQueen). No WiFi, broken TV in room, and strange smell when running A/C.

This is our favorite Santee motel. Always welcoming staff, clean and well-maintained room, hearty breakfast. Easy access from highways and to recreation and businesses of Santee. Weeknight rates are perfectly reasonable. Weekend rates much higher. Plenty of food and convenience options within walking distance, as is one River Park.

connie747, Holts Summit, Missouri 19/10/2017

The room was fine. It was clean and comfortable. It wasn't cleaned until later in the day so couldn't really come back to the hotel to take a nap. The only problem was it was right next to the pool so a little noisy. Much better than the other hotel in Santee.

Very friendly staff, manager was amazing and professional, had a noise complaint but staff went out of their way to be sure it was resolved immediately. Clean rooms, pool and hot tub were clean with no weird smells (yes I've had pools with weird smells at other hotels) breakfast was great with such a large selection of items. I'm very satisfied with my stay. On a plus side the hotel is very convenient to many stores restaurants and shopping.

User 19/09/2017

If your looking for a comfortable, affordable place to stay to the north end of San Diego the Santee Lodge will do the trick for you. Although no what you'd call close to the beaches it is within a couple blocks of the southern California freeway system and within a short time you can be anywhere you should want to go, depending on the traffic of course. Everything about this property is what you expect from a Best Western. For dining out, there is a rather nice Italian restaurant just across the street. It is a favorite of the locals and there was already a waiting list when I got there about 6 p m.

"Somewhere else next time"

Tamara B, San Marcos, California 12/09/2017

Painted wet furniture with no signs on it in the rooms. Pool closes at whatever time staff decides. And breakfast is like going to a carnival sideshow with guests acting terribly, mistreating the machines and cleaning out whole trays of eggs to take back to their rooms.

User 09/09/2017

Hotel is clean. It needs an update but I had a decent sleep - it was reasonably quiet and comfortable. Dog-friendly. Best option if you need to stay in Santee. There are definitely better options if you're willing to drive 10-15 minutes, but the location is fairly good with easy access to a Starbucks and dog park at Woodglen Vista Park.

IrrigationRoom, Oceanside, California, United States 07/08/2017

I could have stayed at a Motel 6 for half the price, but I wanted a more comfortable trip for my family. Unfortunately, the Best Western Santee Lodge was a basic and rough as any old, cheap (but the price was not cheap), dusty highway motel. The pool was dirty/green/small. The carpets were icky. The breakfast room was uncomfortably small--almost to the point of unusable. That being said, the staff was pleasant and I feel like they try their best with what they have.

Much better option in terms of location than the Roadway Inn down the street. It was clean, comfortable and exactly what you expect for a bargain hotel in Santee, ca. (Small town, no frills). Our room was non-smoking, but definitely had faint smoke-smell.

I mentioned details earlier. the room was fine but the remote for the TV was non responsive. I went to the front desk, they gave me a the one from the lobby, that remote also did not work. The following day after I checked out, spoke to the manager and he advised me that the hotel was experiencing a Cox issue. I asked why that should be my problem, he advised me that he would give me a discount on my next reservation. I called the next day for an additional reservation, he increased the room rate by twice as much.

Had to wait for reception to return, check in took while, but person was professional and courteous so made up for it. In room there had been water damage, area had not been repainted. Breakfast was good, but no attendant and I actually ended up throwing other people's trash out. Other than the above, stay was nice.

The staff was very friendly. Room wasn't ready upon being there at 3pm. Bed and mattress were extremely uncomfortable. Had a very loud hotel guest screaming for help at 2am. Had to call the cops (still not sure if anyone else did). Front desk didn't really handle this in any way or bring it up when we were checking out. Was a very scary experience, not sure how much the hotel could do to prevent it. Wish it was addressed differently.

The Best Western Santee Lodge was clean and quiet. The bathroom had plenty of hot water, both in the sink and the shower. A complimentary breakfast was available; the earlier you got to the breakfast room the greater the choices, but even when getting there late there were still plenty of choices of a various of food items. The lobby has a complimentary computer and printer set up so printing airline boarding passes was quick and easy. I would stay at the Best Western Santee Lodge again and am happy to recommend it to other travelers.

I needed a one night stay in the Santee area. This hotel is pretty average, meaning it will be quite adequate for most needs. It is somewhat older but clean and well kept. It has outdoor corridors and the parking lot might be a challenge for very large vehicles or RVs. The bed was fine. Television channels were better than some hotels limited compared to others. Breakfast was typical of a Best Western. Service was polite. I would not hesitate to stay again if I had to travel in the area.

Our house was tented for termites and we needed to stay away 2 nights. I checked out another nearby motel according to its nightly rate, but after reading Tripadvisor, decided against it, too many bad reviews. I decided on Best Western. I have never been disappointed. The Manager was professionally attired, answered all my questions, made sure our room was ready. The room was immaculate, seemed to be recently painted, but not sure. Bathroom area was spotlessly clean. The towels were soft and plush. Bedding nicely done, bed comfy. There are a lot of restaurants nearby, close to freeways and shopping and hiking trails along the San Diego River. The grounds are nicely kept. There is a pool and hot tub and vending machines. Our room was across from the pool, but never heard noise. Continental breakfast was off the Lobby. The usual offerings, waffles, bagels, toast, cereal, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, juices. No scrambled eggs or sausage or meats, but there was plenty to chose from. I can't remember all the offerings. Enough tables and chairs and TV. Big parking lot, plenty of spaces. Wifi in the room was good, also had fridge and microwave.

It was perfect for our needs of meeting with family living in the area. The staff was very cordial and attentive to our needs. I would stay here again in the future if needed. The continental breakfast had plenty of choices and more than what some of the other hotels offer. All in all we were pleased.

Overall, this place was OK. Room looked like it was redone, but be aware there is no elevator to the second floor. The floor in the bathroom was pretty dirty -- we left a towel on the floor as a rug. Breakfast was fine -- lots of choices. Not sure I'd stay here again due to noise issues but it was OK for one night.

"Very Interesting Stay - First and Last"

2
User 18/08/2016

We have to go to San Diego often, as my mother is in a convalescent home. We always stay at Best Westerns, and have had excellent experiences, so much so that this time we invited friends to join us. We stayed at Santee Lodge for the first time. When we arrived early, John was very good and checked in our friends early. Our room was not ready, however, John said it would be ready in 10 minutes if we wanted to wait. We decided to go visit my mother first, and so he checked us in and said that we could just pick up the key upon our return. We left and came back around 4PM, (check in is at 3PM) fully expecting to pick up the key and plop down on the bed, as we were exhausted both physically and emotionally. The room was still not ready, and a new guy was behind the counter. Instead of calmly checking on the room to see what was the holdup, he began to verbally attack John, and then us. When we asked for another room that was ready, he wanted to put us in the middle of rooms that had animals, and the room he wanted to give us had previously housed an animal. (It is a pet friendly hotel, and all the ground floor allows pets). Both of us have allergies, so that was not a solution. At the end of it all, the room needed a bedspread and then it would be ready. No need for the drama at all. The guy threw our key down on the counter, and when I went to open the room, it had not been activated. Once activated, he threw it again on the counter at me. He actually told us to get out of his lobby,and get lost! The next day, we went out for the day, and on our return, we found we had been locked out of our room. So we had to go back and deal with the same guy. The owner came out to make sure things remained calm. (We had reported the incident to him earlier). If there had not been mitigating circumstances, ie our friends were well situated in their room, my brother had taken the day off work to spend with us, etc. we would have left the first day. But we stuck it out, kinda hoping for at least an apology from the offending party, but there was only tension. We DEFINITELY felt that we were not welcome. The owner felt that the situation was tension between co-workers, but the fact is that we were treated horribly as guests, and instead of relaxing at the hotel, we felt constant tension, and again, no apology from the guy or compensation for us. The hotel itself is ok, the rooms are clean and kept up nicely. If they realize that being in the hospitality business means to be hospitable to strangers, they would get much better ratings from us.

"Manager Overcharged"

1
Robin A, Antioch, United States 13/08/2016

Although the hotel was clean and the staff was friendly, the manager overcharged us, refused to work with us over a mistake BW made in reservations. Because of his attitude and his unwillingness to work with us we will NEVER stay at this Lodge again and I recommend others to steer clear. He also tried to sneak in a charge for a service dog for two rooms at an additional cost of $160. Manager Peter Ko was uncooperative, arrogant and unfriendly. Not a good start to a family vacation.

"Maybe it's because I travel so much..."

2
Wrigley2013, Miller Place, New York 07/08/2016

...but I was generally pretty miserable at this hotel, which is really a motel. I have tried to assess why, and I can tell you that it started with my first interaction with the owner. I had been travelling for 10 hours by the time I arrived and I was greeted by him with a severe scowl because I arrived before check-in (it was 3 pm 'my time', but noon there). The woman behind the counter with him was lovely and just quickly looked for available rooms and found one, while he continued to scowl. Not. Too. Welcoming. Didn't need that. I was supposed to have a 'suite' but I got a table and 2 chairs crammed next to the beds. The room was clean (1 star), the breakfast buffet was adequate (1 star), but my colleague and I were convinced that there were people living there full time, and confirmed it by passing a room with the door open, and a hospital bed within. Our work location was very close by and I'm not sure what other hotels are in Santee, but I shudder at the though that this rated the #1 hotel there. Yikes. Epilogue: The owner must have been having a bad day that first day because he tried very hard to be professional after that, but the tone had already been set. Also, KUDOS to those who took the photos for this place...you would have no idea it is crammed in between 2 other businesses on a busy boulevard.

"Shady owner"

User 28/07/2016

Read your registration before you sign upon check in. They say they are not responsible for lost or stolen items, my son's iPad was fine when we left the room upon coming back after housekeeping the entire screen was shattered. I took it to the office and asked for them to replace the screen or comp a night which fixing the screen would be cheaper. The owner still refuses to accept responsibility. Shady people. My son's iPad was in his suitcase hidden, don't understand how it could've shattered when we weren't even there and they don't want to take responsibility to fix it.

This hotel was a great value! I stayed here for San Diego Comic Con because it was way more affordable than any of the hotels near the Convention Center in downtown and Mission Valley. The breakfast was good and offered a lot of different options. The lobby, rooms, and complex were all nice. The only thing I didn't like was the mattresses; they were kind if springy. But I would definitely stay at this hotel again! I also enjoyed the free parking and free WiFi.

Our stay was wonderful. The staff from the front desk to the maintenance staff were wonderful! The room was immaculate and comfortable. The location was perfect - family lives nearby. Centrally located to many amenities. The team was helpful and professional. I would absolutely stay again!

"Foot traffic into early hours"

Audreyr0se, Santee, California 04/06/2016

Unfriendly staff, musty rooms, dirty pool, and foot traffic all night from hookers! Never stay here again. Expensive for what they give you. Dark rooms and I found rather depressing. Parking pretty tight. At a very noisy intersection. Try The Rose Inn. Better value and quiet.

"A Place to Sleep"

Frank R, Baldwin Park, California, Usa 01/06/2016

Our stay at Best Western Santee was an overnight stay. We attended a family wedding in La Jolla, CA and this was the closest availability. This hotel was well kept and the room was comfortable.It was a place to sleep. The hotel is not where we would normally stay, but I would stay again if my first choices were not available.

"Very old and outdated!"

2
Richad B, Seattle, Washington 20/05/2016

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 there is nothing else, this place is ok to just sleep.

"Motel style"

Phyllis10, Holbrook, New York 18/05/2016

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 everything you need in it. The bed was comfortable, they could use new pillows. In the morning we had breakfast before we left. Breakfast was the usual complimentary, scrambled eggs, sausage, pastries, waffles to make yourself, yogurt, oatmeal, grits, some fruit, juice and coffee. I would definitely recommend this hotel and I would stay again if my travels takes me in this direction.

"Stay away"

User 28/04/2016

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.

"Santee's Best Motel"

polizzi82, Santee, California 25/04/2016

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 seem to be immigrants from another country- not a deal breaker, just be aware.

"Best motel in East County"

DJS1000, Albuquerque, New Mexico 20/04/2016

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 was good. The hot part was cup of soup and individually wrapped burritos and they also had the full complement of bagels, bread, pastrys, cereals. No parking for oversized vehicles as the parking lot is small and uneven. I found the pillows hard and they gave me a shoulder ache but that's just me. I prefer places that give a selection as I like soft pillows. They have an 11 am check out and they mean it.

Carol W, Wise, VA, United States 18/04/2016

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 nearby.

Steve D, Phoenix, United States 06/04/2016

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.

"Clean"

Colin H, ventura, United States 30/03/2016

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 right and bed was comfy. Lots of traffic noise early in the morning. We slept in room 102 second floor and started hearing trucks at around 5:30 or earlier so good thing we had to get up early to go to a job. Be warned about the noise but the bed was very comfy. Also -They have soap/ shampoo "dispensers" in the shower which suck because I take baths and they were not easy to reach. Great for business but I wouldn't go there for vacation. I would opt for the Barona Casino next time!

"Very clean hotel in seedy neighborhood"

User 14/03/2016

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.

Carol S, Orchard Park, NY, United States 13/03/2016

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 was especially useful. It was an enjoyable stay!

This is a very well kept hotel,The staff is very well trained and has everything they need to help you,and make your stay the best they can.The hotel is right in a good location for the Santee and Lakeside area. I Personally thank all hotel rates are way to high just for a bed and shower,and a waffle.But it beats towing your RV, Just for a nights stay.

"Comfortable and clean mid range motel"

Charlotte H, Paducah, Kentucky 25/02/2016

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 it was clean. Rooms were a decent size and included a small fridge and microwave. The breakfast was very basic but adequate for a 2-3 night stay. We were there Saturday-Monday nights. We stayed on 2nd floor because that floor is pet and smoke free. However, no elevator. So be aware of that. The desk clerk and maids spoke limited English. We did not have a problem with the room but did have trouble communicating with them even to get extra towels, etc. I was thankful that there were no major issues. We would stay here again.

"Standard Mid-Range Hotel, Cold Pool"

3
User 09/02/2016

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 a bad back).

"Nice Option for a visit to the area"

Solomiya P, Los Angeles, United States 08/02/2016

My family traveled for a weekend race I had in a close by regional park and this hotel was one of the few options close by. We were pleasantly surprised by the comfort of our room, the quality of breakfast in the morning and how convenient it was for us on this trip. Get pick for our needs!

"Comfortable rooms, but lacking in other amenities"

3
Patricia R, Boynton Beach, Florida 20/01/2016

Our guest room was very comfortable - spacious, clean, and well maintained. But the hotel is very loud overall. Thin walls mean you can hear everything going on next door, and exterior hallways make for lots of noise from the road and parking lot. It's also pet friendly, so you may have barking dogs. The breakfast was bare bones and there is no fitness center. Given that there aren't many other choices in the area, this is probably the best, but next time we'll stay a little further away for nicer accommodations at almost the same price.

"Great Hotel"

User 08/01/2016

This hotel was extremely clean with convenience of restaurants and other needed services close by within walking distance. Utilized the laundry services and hot tub (too cold for pool although in excellent condition). The breakfast was excellent with lots of variety. Staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. Would recommend to others.

"A very comfortable little oasis!"

Pamela P, Littleton, Colorado 15/12/2015

This is a very clean and very comfortable hotel. It is easily accessible to the highway, shopping, El Cajon and Lakeside, and to one of our favorite restaurants- Jimmy's. While most of their rooms are not huge, they are quite adequate. The housekeepers are great, the beds are very comfy, and the free breakfast is outstanding. All of the food is always very fresh. I have stayed here three times and will definitely be back. The owners are exceptionally nice people.

Carol W, Wise, VA, United States 02/12/2015

This is an excellent motel -- Clean, Comfortable, Priced right; staff is friendly and helpful. We made a mistake when we booked and only booked one night -- the staff not only set us up for a second night, they kept us in the same room so we didn't have to move our things. We plan on making the Santee Lodge our go to motel for stays in the San Diego area.

This hotel met our needs, good location and nicely maintained. If you are staying in Santee this is a good choice. Close to dining, freeway, etc. For all the choices in Santee this is a good one to chose.

Linda B, Oahu, Hawaii 23/09/2015

It is a very comfortable place to stay, my niece is a couple miles away and this is very convent, we have always used this hotel since we have been visiting my niece in Santee.. The hotel is always busy because of the convent location, the price and the condition of the hotel, along with serving a contaninetal breakfast, you can't beat the price for all of this. I will use this the next time also.

"Below Average Room"

Rebecca W, Apple Valley, United States 16/08/2015

Cleanliness was an issue, debris under/around base of bed. Two worms in bathroom. Plug on the nightstand work didn't work. No bath mat, we had to ask and insist. The mgr. wanted us to use our towels, but those can be slippery on tile. AC "high" cool light not working. We were told the unit only cools on high. We left the room for several hours on low, when returning, it was stale and muggy. Someone should have mentioned it... Breakfast ok, fresh yogurt, fruit, 3 cereal choices, juice watered down, waffle maker, cold milk, syrup, pastries, muffins, toast, hot coffee, bagels. That area very clean and well stocked.

"HANDICAPPED - BE ADVISED TO BOOK ELSEWHERE!"

Donna P, Kingman, United States 13/08/2015

I stated on my (online) reservation that I had difficulty walking and that I'm handicapped. They assigned me to a room upstairs with no elevator. After I found out where the room was located and told them that I had stated my disabilities on the online reservation, they switched me to a room on the ground level but it had two queen beds instead of the king bed I had reserved. Also, the TV guide in the book listed channels that were not on the TV and the ice machine was not located where it was depicted on the map. I am reluctant to book at this hotel even though I own a rental in this town and sometimes need to visit.
