As always, My stay at this property was just what the doctor ordered. The ease of checking in, the helpfulness of the staff -- everything, is first class. everyone goes out of their way to make sure the you never have a need for anything.

This hotel is average quality of the Best Western Hotels. The room was clean and the bed was okay. What made the stay uncomfortable was the loud boisterous parties in various rooms, which was noisy. Several of the guests were pigs, throwing food and trash around the grounds of the hotel. I reported the mess that was caused by guests... More

The price was good for a Thursday night stay. However our room was constantly filled with the chemical odors from the rooms being repainted and repaired next to ours. We were out most of the day/evening so by the time we returned much later in the evening it was too late to request a different room.

This hotel was clean and affordable. Not too close to San Diego, but not too far either. We enjoyed the pool, breakfast and loved the fact that they only have non-smoking rooms. We were happy with the service, even though the maid did not speak English. We will be back.

They have a poor breakfast menu. Cold hard boiled eggs only. terrible coffee and people skills lacking staff. There's a sign that tells you are not allowed to take food out, which you can't see as you enter the kitchen area because it is located on the wall by the door entrance. So of course you can't see until you... More

It is a small motel; my room was very clean, I had enough towels and since it was a hot day I was able to enjoy the pool as well. Breakfast was a big plus for me. I did not see any "shady" activity as described by other people, but keep in mind that you are going to El Cajon!... More

Arrived very late after midnight to find the lobby door locked. Rang the bell to no avail! Called the manager on my cell phone and he let me in. Key cards didn't work. Had to be re-programmed several times. Lots of drunks and hookers in the neighborhood. Not the best of neighborhoods. Was glad to get back on the road... More

This motel is next to the freeway and has a large parking lot. We arrived around midnight and the friendly clerk put us in a ground floor unit at our request - although he stated rooms in the other building were nicer. Opening the door to the room - there is a strong smell of deodorizer and something else, and... More

I stayed at this hotel over a year ago, and last week, and this is the only hotel that I have stayed at that the showers will go from ice cold to scalding hot and back again over and over every 30 seconds or so. Many guests have complained but in the last year nothing has been done. I would... More

THE WORST BEST WESTERN EVER. Rude staff. Wouldn't even let my 84 year old grandmother take a banana out of the breakfast room. Uncaring and ill mannered. General manager wasn't even available to complain. Prostitutes and lots of noise. Best Western needs to pull the crane his license yesterday!

Thank you Mr P. for the time you took to write this review; however, after checking the video footage for that day nothing matches the situation you are describing; as a matter of fact I see your "84 year old grandmother" talking to the Front Desk Manager, and your " 84 year old grandmother" apologized to her for your rude...
