The lodge is good for reasonable price. Rooms are clean, comfortable and good. The breakfast was good. with enough foods to have a breakfast. Had some good options like sausage, eggs, waffles, yogurt and fruits. Free WiFi, free parking which is really nice. The staff were good on serving and helping us.

We have to go to San Diego often, as my mother is in a convalescent home. We always stay at Best Westerns, and have had excellent experiences, so much so that this time we invited friends to join us. We stayed at Santee Lodge for the first time. When we arrived early, John was very good and checked in our... More

Although the hotel was clean and the staff was friendly, the manager overcharged us, refused to work with us over a mistake BW made in reservations. Because of his attitude and his unwillingness to work with us we will NEVER stay at this Lodge again and I recommend others to steer clear. He also tried to sneak in a charge... More

...but I was generally pretty miserable at this hotel, which is really a motel. I have tried to assess why, and I can tell you that it started with my first interaction with the owner. I had been travelling for 10 hours by the time I arrived and I was greeted by him with a severe scowl because I arrived... More

The staff was wonderful and very accommodating. I needed to be on the first floor due to an injury, the employee on duty made sure that my need was met and offered me assistance - I was really impressed by the willingness of staff to ensure my stay was enjoyable. I will be back, nice room, reasonable price, close to... 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
