Swimming pool should be cleaned more frequently. Wifi is good. Lobby attendants are kind. Some rooms have bad smells and housekeeping services are not perfect. The location of the hotel is perfect. 'Breakfast' is not actually a breakfast. There should be more things to eat.

The hotel was perfect for what we needed, someplace to sleep! It's clean and affordable, breakfast is nothing more than packaged pastries and coffee but it's very close to the Santee Trolley which we loved! We purchased a weekend pass and took it everywhere, it is and hour ride to downtown San Diego but not having to deal with traffic... More

The room overall was clean but it lacked some very basic things that most hotels we have stayed in have. There was a small fridge and microwave, however the fridge was set so cold it froze our food. There was no clock and no coffeepot in the room and the continental breakfast was very weak. Packaged danish which didn't taste... More

This place isn't too bad but a few things I don't like. Yes as mentioned in other post, the plumbing sucks because you can hear other people showering. That's always a mild problem. If you get a room off the street it can be noisy. For that, earplugs are your friends. The room is a little outdated but again it's... More

After trying to find a hotel in downtown SanDiego that was both reasonable and didn't have paid parking I decided on this hotel. The price difference made the drive back and forth worth while for me. The hotel is a little older but was adequate for our trip which was my daughter and I sight seeing the SanDiego area. The... More

Cons: The plumbing. You can hear every time someone flushes a toilet, washes their hands, or takes a shower anywhere in the complex. One night, I jumped awake because the noise was so loud. Also, the toilet paper. I've used tissue paper that has had more substance. You might want to bring your own. Pros: It is within walking distance... More

The Rodeway Inn in Santee CA. is a frugal conscience hotel choice in Santee. Boasting a total of three hotels, Santee, a bedroom suburb of San Diego is not noted as a direct destination for the jet set, but if you have family in the valley or need a place for a short stay, Rodeway Inn fits the bill nicely....

Found on Travel site - it had the best rates for the time we are staying out here. Visiting family and friends, so the hotel will be a sleeping locale -- a place to park our bones. :) Wanted a place that was inexpensive and quiet and for the most part got what we asked for. The beds are large... More
