Very sketchy guests. Definitely a motel. Decent breakfast. My friend had a cockroach in her bathroom and I found dirty clothes in my dresser drawer. The rooms were okay. Comfy bed and surprisingly pretty quiet.

We were in crisis as evacuees from wildfires. Everyone on staff treated us with empathy and kindness. Relatives were able to pay from long distance. The clean and comfortable room was a welcome respite. We would stay there again.

The rooms were clean and they provided breakfast. We stayed in a suite which was a single bed with a pull out. There were no extra blankets and pillows provided for pull out like in other hotels we have stayed at, kind of a pain to have to ask. The breakfast area is a joke. It is very small and... More

If you're looking for a place with exercise room, the website states this place as having an exercise room, which it doesn't. In general, the place is better than sleeping in your car, but i would have expected more from a best western.

Company paid hotel so I had no clue where I was going that day. First time in El Cajon. This is just outside of San Diego. Cheap but limited hotels around to save money. The location was not friendly.

This hotel was an excellent choice after a long relay race. My team stopped here to rest and refuel before heading home after a long and active weekend. The beds were very comfortable, the bathrooms clean and the staff friendly. Breakfast was excellent. I would recommend without hesitation.

Safety issues. Arrived at 2:00 a.m. on Friday night. There was a mixture of people partying and homeless people present in all areas. Men were standing on the balcony cat calling. Room was small and dated, similar to Motel 6. Linens were stained and had hair on them. In addition, I paid $100 for room rate, but that was with... More

Stayed one night. Room was clean & bed was comfortable. Lighting in room not adequate or convenient. Breakfast was good & the coffee was GREAT! Best motel coffee ever--including much pricier places. You need a coupon go get into the breakfast room, but no one told us. Embarrassed--had to go get them at the front desk. Be sure to ask... More

This just an average place to stay so don't expect more. The location and price made the decision for us since we have family in the area. The traffic noise from I-8 was noticeable but not offensive. The heater never worked. The sheets were average/

This is an excellent Best Western. I am a Best Western rewards member and almost always stay at a Best Western when I am out of town. I average about 3 nights a month in a hotel in Southern Cal for business, and this hotel is a great value for this area. I have stayed in this hotel about 5... More
