This hotel is horrible. The staff is very unprofessional. Rooms are dirty. Was insulted by staff and ownership. DO NOT stay at this property.

Chetan P, General Manager at Econo Lodge Inn & Suites El Cajon San Diego East, responded to this review, March 19, 2013
I am glad we were able to help you in your time of need, with hotel room at an employee discount rate for seven nights. I am surprise to here you were not happy with your accommodations, I wish you would have mention this to our staff during your stay so that we could make your experience better.
I am sorry we could not check you in at 7am on day of arrival, as you know our check-in time is 3pm, we do our best to accommodate early check-in but sometime we are not able to do, due room type or sold night day before. On the day of departure, you had left the hotel without your luggage, as courtesy we had extended a late checkout till Noon. Since you were not in your room at 3pm we had to call your cell phone, we are sorry to have disturbed you, by asking you to come and vacate your room, since we were sold out and other guest were waiting to occupy that room.
If you fill you need to discuss this further please give me a call at the inn.
Thank You
Chetan Patel
