The hotel was clean, pool clean, bed was comfortable, a lot of choices for the breakfast buffet, that was included. Parking was available and at no charge. The only negatives were that I didn't have a luggage rack in my room, or a laundry bag. Also, they forgot to do the wake-up call for me in the early morning.

The rooms are standard no-frills hotel rooms. The mattresses are acceptable, although not great. I appreciated that they provided four pillows for each bed. The bathroom was clean although many of the towels are very worn and have holes in them. They have a computer and printer in the front lobby for guest use. The breakfast is the standard waffles,...

Good value, but only standard Best Western. Clean! Good attended. Don't speaks a lot, but I've attended with an early check-in before noon. Avoid room 105 as it is just in front the noisy ice machine... It's really noisy, even when nobody is using it. This isn't most beauty place at Santee and Santee definitely is not the best place...

The motel relys on a 10-20 old remodel to advertise. The exterior and planters are well maintanined togive a good impression on arrival. The maintenance of the rooms and the equipment in the rooms is worn and dated. The staff apparently does not even know the head end of the bed fromm the foot end. Slow and plugged sink and... More

Stayed at this hotel for three nights on 4th of July. I booked a handicap room on the first floor. I was very pleased with the room it had everything a handicap person would need. The grounds are well kept, small pool and the location was great. Close to restaurants and stores. A doughnut shop and a 7 eleven right... More

I reserved a room for 1 night in Santee, CA. and really liked my room and the clean room as well. I brought my 2 year old son and included him in the reservation about 3 weeks prior to my stay. When I arrived to check in I was given an upstairs room that had a very long staircase to... More

Due to a flood in my condo, I stayed at the Best Western Santee Lodge. The location was great, due to the fact it was close to my home and I could have my dog stay with me. My room was nice and clean, but smelled of cigarette smoke even though the room was a non-smoking room. Otherwise my stay... More

Stayed 4 nights (W-Sa) on Memorial Day weekend with my 21 year-old son. Not bad but not the greatest value either. Pretty expensive for what you get. If it weren't about the only game in Santee I'd have looked elsewhere. Room was clean and relatively quiet. Spa was not very hot but it was fine. Pool closes too early (9:00).... More

No advance warning of the painting going on. Granddaughter's & daughter's cars both got paint on them, which the painting company cleaned, for the most part. The rest will come off, but it's sure an inconvenience. Also, pool is not kept clean. The jacuzzi pool is downright murky.

Our condo was recently tented for termites and we needed somewhere to stay for two days with a cat. After a mishap with checking in, staying a night then having the tenting cancelled, they were very understanding of the situation. Instead of being charged a full two days, they charged us a day and half a day for the next,... More
