We stayed in this location this past August 2012. We did not expect luxury and we did not get luxury. What we got was a nice room with a comfortable king-sized bed, refrigerator, microwave, LCD TV, good AC, in a great location, for a great price, with really nice folks at the front desk all hours of the night. 'Nuff said!

Room Tip: Don't get the room across from the ice machine! Every morning a guy would fill up his cooler...

Enjoyed my stay at the lovely Best Western Santee Lodge. I came here last year and they recently got some new LCD TV's. Great service from employees and excellent price. Pet Friendly, Brand New a/c units especially a plus since the weather was so hot during our stay around 100 plus. If you want your stay to be memorable one with you family and pets this is the hotel for you. Full Breakfest in the morning with excellent customer service,

Room Tip: No fitness center! But its a hotel thats Pet Friendly!

Got a killer deal at the Hotel's website. At checkout even the desk person was amazed at how little I paid in comparison to other guests. The room had two queen beds and a small writing table. There was not a lot of extra space given that the room had two beds. The matresses were comfortable as were the pillows. Also it was quiet at night even though the hotel was full. Three overstuffed pillows on each bed. I was a little disappointed that the bath/shower had liquid soap and shampoo dispensers rather than bar soap and bottled shampoo. There was however a small bar of soap on the vanity sink that I used. Room was equiped with a hairdryer, coffee maker, small frig, microwave and TV. The remote did not work but a call to the front desk had the problem resolved in about 5 minutes! The room was tidied up nicely each day. The Continental breakfast was sufficient. There was an assortment of bagels, cream cheese, muffins, bread, yogurt, regular and decaf coffee, apple and orange juice as well as bananas, oranges and apples. In addition there was a variety of cold cereals, a packaged oatmeal, make your own fresh waffles and hard boiled eggs. The eating area was rather small, accommodating about 4 tables. Parking is limited. One of the four nights I was there I had to park in front of the business next door. In fact, if you have a sweet tooth, there is a doughnut shop two businesses down that is open 24/7. Free WiFi. Front desk was very helpful. They printed off Mapquest directions for me to a restaurant about 7 miles away.

Room Tip: If you are a non-smoker, make sure you ask for a non-smoking room as not all rooms are non-smoking...

Stayed there last month, smelly, stinky, musty.....with all this reviews I have read about this hotel it is so true that it stinks and someone needs to set up and do something about it. Had a hard time sleeping because of the smell. Very old.

Room Tip: Keep away, get something 20 miles away will be worth your money.

As an owner of a travel agency I would never recommend this place to a client. Room reeked due to disinfectant used at cleaning. Had to open the windows and air it out. Asked the next morning to not use it as it made the room almost unsleepable. When we got back to the room it smeeled again. I, again went to the front desk and asked that they not use it. The third day was tolerable. When we got home our clothes, even the ones we did not wear, smelled of the disinfectant. We had to wash everything and even send items to the dry cleaners. Best Western should revoke their name on this place.

Room Tip: To get a good room, stay someplace else.

Due to unforeseen circumstances had to stay here for about 3 weeks. Awful. Noisy and chinese couple running it were not helpful. Had my cat with me and needed to keep her
in room at office (with front desk permission) overnight. At 6.30am a man appeared and opened my door (thankfully chain was on) and wanted to return cat. He didnt even knock on the door. I went to the office to retrieve my cat. No apologies. Dirty place and noisy at night.
