A nice and clean - and very friendly place to stay in El Cajon. Personable hosts - home away from home feel. Close to a gas station directly across the street - also has a car wash . Local restaurants are close by. On and Off highway easy accessibility.

Too Dated for me; they still have tube TV. The room was indicated as non-smoking but it totally was a smoking room; it also overly, smelled like perfume. When I woke up next morning, my pijama smelled like cigarette! To turn the shower on, u had to get in the tub & pull really hard to turn on the water. The room needs remodeling for sure. Otherwise nice staff; hotel close to freeway. If u can handle the smell & take being in a very old hotel for one night, it is ok. It did have microwave & frig. It was clean.

I love this hotel, it feels like home to me with the welcoming staff and weekly rates available. Could use a bit of renovation, but as expected for the price. Very accommodating staff, and they keep the grounds very safe for their patrons. Excellent central location, close to restaurants, gas, mini mart, and highways.
