Read your registration before you sign upon check in. They say they are not responsible for lost or stolen items, my son's iPad was fine when we left the room upon coming back after housekeeping the entire screen was shattered. I took it to the office and asked for them to replace the screen or comp a night which fixing... More

This hotel was a great value! I stayed here for San Diego Comic Con because it was way more affordable than any of the hotels near the Convention Center in downtown and Mission Valley. The breakfast was good and offered a lot of different options. The lobby, rooms, and complex were all nice. The only thing I didn't like was... More

Our stay was wonderful. The staff from the front desk to the maintenance staff were wonderful! The room was immaculate and comfortable. The location was perfect - family lives nearby. Centrally located to many amenities. The team was helpful and professional. I would absolutely stay again!

Our stay at Best Western Santee was an overnight stay. We attended a family wedding in La Jolla, CA and this was the closest availability. This hotel was well kept and the room was comfortable.It was a place to sleep. The hotel is not where we would normally stay, but I would stay again if my first choices were not... More

The rooms look like they are from the 1980's. No extra wall outlets to charge a phone and laptop. The microwave was broken as well as the coffee maker. Without a door to the bathroom sink, every time it is used, the light bothers a person sleeping. No DVD player with the TV. If you are in a pinch, and... More

We stayed here as a stop over on our trip from NY to Florida. Check in was very quick and smooth, price was good $87 for the night. The hotel is set up like old fashion motel style. You park your car right outside your door, which I think is great. The room was very neat and clean and had... More

They were super rude to me and made me feel VERY unwelcome. I don't recommend this place at all! I was only staying for one day and they made it clear they didn't want my business. Yes it was very inexpensive but for a female being alone I did not feel safe or welcome there.

It's not the best motel, but if you're in Santee this property has good parking, is decently maintained, offers a nice free breakfast and clean pool. It's not kept as well as the Wynn or Venetian but you're in Santee paying a decent rate for a safe, clean place to stay with nice amenities. Owners/operators are somewhat awkward but they... More

If you have stayed in El Cajon, Santee, or Lakeside you'll know that there is not much to choose from. Most hotels are old, musty, and not that well cleaned. The BW Santee lodge was cleaner and fresher. We got a suite rather than the regular king bed room. It was clean and quiet. The price was fine. The breakfast... More

Room was clean and quiet. The queen beds were made with fresh linens and they were very comfortable. Our room was across from the pool but we heard no noise from the pool equipment. Coffee served with the breakfast is excellent quality; breakfast items were fresh and plentiful. Quick service on check-in and check-out. Easy access to stores and restaurants... More
