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

This hotel was really weird. The beds had flat sheets on them, which always ball up and make sleeping very uncomfortable, the fridge had a rattle every time it came on and I eventually had to put a towel between it and the wall so we could sleep, the beds were small and old, no coffee pot, no amenities at...

I originally made a reservation at the Best Western in Santee when I found out I need to come for work in Santee. It was a dump, and left as soon as I looked at the room. There aren't many choices in Santee, so I ended up at the Rodeway. A young boy named Lon checked me in, and even... More

Dear Teresa, I apologize on behalf of our staff that they did not act on your request. We only have one "boy" at the front desk working with us at this time, so I brought this up to his attention. He has always been attentive to guests and acts promptly, that I am sorry that he was not in this... More

I rated it 4 stars based on the price, it's very good for a motel in this price range. Payed $42 for a king online, the checkin was fine, the room not overly large but acceptable. Soaps small but included shampoo, a very small fridge and microwave, flat screen TV with DirectTV with lots of options, including adult titles unprotected... More

I stayed one night at this motel, its basic but has some nice amenities like wifi, a little but good enough breakfast offering, and is convenient to town (you can walk). TV selection good as well. Overall a very good value.

Rashawn (sp?) was very helpful getting us booked when the online options were clearly not all that was available. Got us a better room, and for less. 3-night stay/early August. Lon was super helpful when we checked in/out, answering all our questions with a great attitude. Room was clean, no plumbing problems and had amenities we did not expect -... More

Pros: Room was clean Immediate hot water Nice shower Furniture was nice and matched Service was friendly Was allowed an early check in Safe fees easily removed Cons: Bed was ancient and "springy" Micro-fridge fees are simply petty- if my $1.50 is that important to the hotel, then raise your rate by a buck or two. Don't make me feel... More
