I spent 12 days here when flying at nearby Gillespie Field. The coist of flying means there's not much cash left for lodging, hence the Super 8 or next-door Northgate fit the bill.
The big downer for me was negotiating an extension on my checkout time from 11am till 4pm (evening flight), without having to paying for another 24 hours. A unreasonable request was a real pain, getting final approval from the proprietor (it's a franchise) from first mention to desk took over 12 hours. I thought Americans were "experts in customer service", never mind.
Apart from that, the room was fine, the bed comfy and the location ideal (a little noisy being next to I-8).
Breakfast is basic, if you are happy with corn flakes, toast and an apple, fine, otherwise be prepared to look around the neighbourhood to find better alternatives.
El Cajon is no La Jolla, some dodgy characters lurking around / near the car park but this is usual Street Life USA, no trouble though.
Would stay again.
