We were in town for a softball tournament. We came as a 4 person family and had a good night's rest. We were very happy with the variety at the free continental breakfast for a small hotel. Room was clean, staff was polite. We checked in late and had no problems. For a short one night stay it was a... More

Worse stay ever. Cockroaches, lighting issues, poor quality beds, and very noisy. The walls must be very thin, it sounded like elephants clomping around upstairs. They were also doing work and the noise was too much. The lights in the room have sensors. All I did was turn over in bed and the lights came on. Happened all night so... More

There was a problem with my bill and the General Manager refused to help. Even though I had called and cancelled my reservation and the desk clerks said they were canceled they were not and I was charged for 2 extra rooms. Peter refused to give me his last name, it took me a least five minutes to get it.... More

Beds aren't the most comfortable, but w/e. Awesome location to freeways and everything was really close by. Place was otherwise really clean and staff was friendly. Decent internet here, too. Thank you for being pet-friendly. Has pool and jacuzzi. Well-lit. Small and quiet.

This location is a good place for those traveling. I don';t think I'd want to stay here long term. The parking lot is awful, with one section (handicapped) raised about 3 feet high than the rest, on a narrow driveway -- which makes maneuvering a tad tricky. Because the location is very near a busy intersection, turning left into the... More

Checked in late but the staff was very accommodating and helpful. The rooms were nice and modern the air freshener was a bit strong, however, the room smelled clean. Beds were comfortable and there were many channels on the TV. Pool, although did not use, looked clean and nice. Breakfast was free and would rate 8/10 and parking was plentiful.... More

Really nice, quiet, and CLEAN hotel. Staff is attentive and courteous. Would definitely stay there again. I was traveling from Arizona to Carlsbad and simply got too tired. I decided to stay at Bestwestern Santee Lodge because they were located right by a major freeway. The front desk person was extremely nice and efficient. The rooms clean and comfortable.

We have family in the area so we look for a reasonable,clean, centrally located motel when we come to visit and this fits the bill perfectly. The price is good and includes breakfast and the staff are friendly. We did not use the pool, but it looked really nice and well maintained. Not a great place, but very good.

My husband travels for work. He needed to stay here for an extended period of time. Each morning he would pull up and grab breakfast and go. Literally not even staying for 5 minutes. There are NO posted no parking signs under the portico, it is also 6 am in the morning, and he is a paying client. The man... More
