I originally made a reservation at the Best Western in Santee when I found out I need to come for work in Santee. It was a dump, and left as soon as I looked at the room. There aren't many choices in Santee, so I ended up at the Rodeway. A young boy named Lon checked me in, and even... More

Dear Teresa, I apologize on behalf of our staff that they did not act on your request. We only have one "boy" at the front desk working with us at this time, so I brought this up to his attention. He has always been attentive to guests and acts promptly, that I am sorry that he was not in this... More

I rated it 4 stars based on the price, it's very good for a motel in this price range. Payed $42 for a king online, the checkin was fine, the room not overly large but acceptable. Soaps small but included shampoo, a very small fridge and microwave, flat screen TV with DirectTV with lots of options, including adult titles unprotected... More

I stayed one night at this motel, its basic but has some nice amenities like wifi, a little but good enough breakfast offering, and is convenient to town (you can walk). TV selection good as well. Overall a very good value.

Rashawn (sp?) was very helpful getting us booked when the online options were clearly not all that was available. Got us a better room, and for less. 3-night stay/early August. Lon was super helpful when we checked in/out, answering all our questions with a great attitude. Room was clean, no plumbing problems and had amenities we did not expect -... More

Pros: Room was clean Immediate hot water Nice shower Furniture was nice and matched Service was friendly Was allowed an early check in Safe fees easily removed Cons: Bed was ancient and "springy" Micro-fridge fees are simply petty- if my $1.50 is that important to the hotel, then raise your rate by a buck or two. Don't make me feel... More

I booked 2 non-smoking rooms for me and 7 other girlfriends from online website. There is a sign saying that there is discount for AAA members. I mentioned about my AAA membership to the front desk, she said that they already charged my card, so she can't adjust the price anymore. Both of the rooms we booked were obviously not... More

Hello Friska K., Thank you for your feedback. This gives me an opportunity to clarify the reservation process for our property. If you booked online with ChoiceHotels.com or over the phone at our location, your credit card would be used to only reserve the room and we would have access to the rate and can give you the AAA discount,...

Pictures online are very misleading! Rooms are old and looked dirty to me. Not even a hair dryer in the room. Noisy and definitely NOT worth $90.00. Pool looked dirty too although I did not use it. No restaurant within walking distance,
