Let me just start by saying I woke up to a pitbull fight outside my hotel.. I could not have gotten out of this dungeon faster than I could have. If you enjoy people knocking on your door at 4am then this is the best place for you. The only thing didn't happen was someone to Jump out of my... More

We spent 3 weeks here on business. The rooms are covered in mirrors and have a small (window sized) ac unit to cool the rooms. This unit was blocked by the bed. The breakfast consisted of sausage, waffles, cereal and muffins (which were both stale). Once the food was gone it was not replinished and since they allowed people to... More

We arrived at this hotel and our first room was disgusting. Found clothing stuffed in our sheets and gum wrapper stuffed into a hole in the wall. Holes in the blankets and just overall dirty. Second room was just ok when we first got in. Garbage also found behind dresser and bed. The non smoking rooms are really not non... More

I use Tripadvisor to select this hotel. So I trusted the reviews that were posted. I asked for a non-smoking room with 2 beds. The room appeared to look nice. BUT the beds smelled like cigarettes. The bathroom was acceptable, the small sink, frig and microwave was nice. The shower water went from hot to cold at 10am. Although the... More

Even when I am writing my review two years after the experience, reading the other reviews, nothing might changed. We booked this Inn couple of hours before coming to have a affordable solution to crash for two nights, going to San Diego seaworld next morning. When we came, there was no electricity. It was all dark and it looked really... More

This is the worst hotel I ever stayed in. We booked in for 4 nights .When we got to our room I could not believe the sight before me. The carpet was so dirty that I would not even let my dog, who was travelling with us sleep on. Don't take off your shoes. There was a stain on the... More

Booked online for a nonsmoking room with two queen size beds for my wife, daughter and me. Even called in a couple of weeks in advance to make sure everything is in order. It was advertised that every room has a refrigerator and microwave. When we arrived, we were stuck with a single smoking room with one king size bed... More

I thought the Hotel was more for truckers but was surprised. Great breakfast, pool was nice and the staff was friendly. Had my 82yr old Mom with me and she enjoyed it. It was also a lot quieter then i thought it would be. I would stay there again for the price.

Continued from my original El Cajon nightmare......we were sent to this hotel by Corporate Customer Service after the EconoLodge El Cajon didn't complete their duty to provide what was promised in my 2 month in advance reservation. That started at 5PM and it is now 8PM. When we arrive, I ask (again) about a rollaway which is essential to our... More

I was trying to find a hotel last minute during Comic Con and everything was booked solid near the convention center, I ended up about 25 miles east in a less than desirable suburb called El Cajon. At first I was leary but when I walked into the lobby I was greeted with a welcoming smile from the Manager Alap... More
