I stayed here from 12/07/14 - 12/10/14 on a business stay. On my last day there I opened the micro waive to warm my food and found a roach which was disgusting. When I got up to leave early to drive back home I found another one crawling on the wall. When I discussed this with the clerk at the... More

Thank you for your review. We are very sorry about your experience; however, we had the room inspected for any type of insects and our maintenance/housekeeping staff could not find any traces or signs of them. Next time you decide to book a hotel room it is best to book with the hotel directly since our policies are more flexible... More

Check-in was very fast and courteous. Once in my room I was extremely pleased with the cleanliness and decor. The king size bed was very spacious and comfortable. The room I stayed in had a balcony (which I loved) that faced the highway which could be loud at times but I found myself not noticing it especially if the patio... More

It was clean and smelled really good. Cooling was a little hard to control. The shower water pressure changed several times during the shower and the temperature went from warm to hot several time during the shower..

At first, I admit that I was hesitant to book this hotel seeing the review ratings for 2 stars. But then, I booked it anyway since it was about 2 miles to Shadow Mountain church. I requested a lower level room since my folks are with me on this trip. When I entered the room, it smelled cigarettes, I had... More

I stayed at this Great Western based on previous positives reviews. It's location is very good and doesn't show any criminal or gang activity. The room and grounds were clean. The personnel were efficient, polite and accommodating. My rood was next to a HWY but I didn't hear much "car noise" with the slider closed. A Standard gas station nearby... More

We are a 100% non-smoking hotel, and unfortunately when guests violate our no-smoking policy we have to charge them a fee for damaging the room. Thank you for your review. More

I immediately called the hotel so they could save it for me and the receptionist was extremely helpful, and... More

I got stranded in San Diego over the weekend and needed a clean room and since Western has a good reputation I decided to book the special for the night. The room was clean, pool was clean, Breakfast was basic,no scrambled eggs, no omelettes, but they have fruit and waffles. Considering the price this was a great deal!
