We had to make arrangements for Father's Day and a graduation party in the San Diego proper but had to stay close to the town where the party was. We were referred to Best Western in Santee. Even though the Lodge is average in exterior and upgrades, the service was fantastic. Very accommodating. We arrived in the late morning to... More

The hotel was clean but a little unorganized. I liked the property, the room, and the pool was pretty. They could have just been little more organized with the staff. The computers were down when we checked in and they next day they had to find towels for us when we came back to our room at 3pm. However the... More

The room was clean when we arrived, but there were several issues with the hotel. Parking is very limited and the spaces are very close together. Inside the room all of the lights were on movement sensors. This means that the lights in the bathroom area come on every time that someone walks through the area. This means that if... More

Hotel was pleasantly clean and beds were extremely comfortable. Front desk clerk friendly. Only 2 minor problems: no elevators, only stairs and they have the bathroom vanity area lights on a sensor which blinds you when you wake in the middle of the night to use the facilities. It's a little on the expensive side but not too many hotels... More

Had stayed at numerous hotels in the last 12 months and this place ranks among the best. Quiet, very clean with easy access to the major roads made our stay great. Could make the breakfast menu a little more varied but it was sill good.

The hotel itself was very nice. The downside was a long term resident who was very noisy from 6pm -3am. I was there from 5pm-8pm to get some sleep after my father's heart surgery. I would not have minded paying over $100 for one night if I could have gotten some sleep but because I didn't, I don't feel great... More

The only problems we had were with the young guy the first night we were there when we went and asked for a blanket since there was only a sheet on one bed. He said "well you may have to go without one until tomorrow". I said are you kidding me...I am paying you $90 a night and you cant... More

Lights in room were controlled by automatic sensors, which came on at night while sleeping. The slightest movement would activate them. Very irritating. The noise from nearby freeway and roads was very loud.
