TV only received one channel. No discount offered. Breakfast mediocre. It would be nice to have had a variety of hot food items and seasonal fresh fruit. Outside appearance very nice but rooms dingy with only table lamps.

Our house was tented for termites and we needed to stay away 2 nights. I checked out another nearby motel according to its nightly rate, but after reading Tripadvisor, decided against it, too many bad reviews. I decided on Best Western. I have never been disappointed. The Manager was professionally attired, answered all my questions, made sure our room was...

Not too bad rooms were pretty big a little bit pricey because they do allow animals but the room smell like they allow animals but other than that it wasn't too bad there is a pool in the middle of the property and lots of free parking and the owner seemed very nice

We stayed here in November of 2016 for two weeks and now in March 2017 for 12 nights. Staff is great and very accommodating. Breakfast is very good and great coffee! Rooms are large and comfortable. The nicest and most economical hotel in Santee, CA. Very conveniently located, as well. We look forward to future stays.

Our house was tented for termites and we needed a place to stay for 2 nights. I decided on Best Western because I can trust that my stay will be comfortable, safe, with great breakfast and wifi. Room appeared to be newly painted, great bedding, clean bathroom, soft bath towels, hot water. Quite location, convenient to restaurants, shopping.

Was a last minute booking way out of my area of doing business. However I liked the room and especially the Bed. The internet service was usable unlike my experience at other hotels that provide free internet service. Did run out of body wash. That is something I expect the staff to make sure does not happen.

We stayed here while visiting family in Santee. The staff was very helpful and pleasant. If you need to shop while on vacation or visiting then this hotel is close to everything you may need. Almost all the rooms are around the pool area. It is a small hotel and long vehicles will have a parking issue when the hotel...

This is a decent motel in an area where there is not a lot of motels or restaurants. The room was clean and had been updated and most importantly, the bed was comfortable. The breakfast choices were many and were kept filled and the area kept clean. Good service from the lady who was working there!
