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...

...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...

The staff was wonderful and very accommodating. I needed to be on the first floor due to an injury, the employee on duty made sure that my need was met and offered me assistance - I was really impressed by the willingness of staff to ensure my stay was enjoyable. I will be back, nice room, reasonable price, close to...

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...

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...

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!

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...

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.
