The breakfast was bare bones and... More

This hotel was extremely clean with convenience of restaurants and other needed services close by within walking distance. Utilized the laundry services and hot tub (too cold for pool although in excellent condition). The breakfast was excellent with lots of variety. Staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. Would recommend to others.

While most of their rooms are not huge, they are quite adequate. The housekeepers are great, the beds are very comfy, and the free breakfast is outstanding. All of the food... More

This is an excellent motel -- Clean, Comfortable, Priced right; staff is friendly and helpful. We made a mistake when we booked and only booked one night -- the staff not only set us up for a second night, they kept us in the same room so we didn't have to move our things. We plan on making the Santee... More

This hotel met our needs, good location and nicely maintained. If you are staying in Santee this is a good choice. Close to dining, freeway, etc. For all the choices in Santee this is a good one to chose.

Cleanliness was an issue, debris under/around base of bed. Two worms in bathroom. Plug on the nightstand work didn't work. No bath mat, we had to ask and insist. The mgr. wanted us to use our towels, but those can be slippery on tile. AC "high" cool light not working. We were told the unit only cools on high. We... More
