Property was very old, but clean. The breakfast provided was not that great. Lots of stuff gone early, not enough restocked.

We get there at 11:30 pm. We’re told by front desk that Travelocity made a room reservation when they had no more rooms available. I told him I made my reservation at 3 p.m. he said owner of the establishment closed same day reservations. Needless to say, we ended up getting a room because I already paid for it. We got Room 319. There was a German cockroach in the sink. As well, in the morning there was an earwig (pincher bug) on a towel that was on the little dining table. First time using Travelocity and this hotel. Not pleased at all. I could have gone to motel 6 and wouldn’t have had these issues. I mean, after a 7 hour drive all you want to do is take a shower and go to bed. I told the clerk upfront upon checkout about the situation and he didn’t seem too empathetic. Very very very displeased with the whole situation.

ENjoyed the Cleanliness

Pros: Cleanliness. Glad to see there was a restaurant next door for convenient breakfast.
Cons: The shower head had very weak pressure.
Booked online with no problem. Glad to find out that the 2 rooms we booked were adjacent.

You get what you pay for!!!!!

Pros: Quiet
Cons: Poor breakfast
The room left much to be desired. The room was dirty and the door did not seal all the way. For the price we paid I was not surprised by the condition of the hotel. I did not realize when booking the neighborhood it was located in. I felt unsafe leaving my rental in the parking lot overnight.The continental breakfast was one of the worst I have ever seen. They offered 2 cereals and small pastries. Plaid Pantry breakfast is better. It was queit. The whole city of El Cajon closes down at 9 and if you ever visit you will understand why. Scary! Once again, you get what you pay for!

Close to the freeway for easy access to attractions, good value for the money.

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Quiet, nearby freeway access, in room refrigerator
Cons: not close to attractions, pool small and unusable
The tariff was low and provided good value for the money. Although the hotel is not fancy and the pool is really not usable (no privacy and no shade), it is clean, roomy and staffed with friendly people. Closeby there is an indoor mall with a large Walmart for any unexpected needs that crop up. There are also lots of dining choices nearby (on the other side of the freeway).

Good Value

Although this hotel is a bit far from the tourist sites, it is located right off of I-8 and easy to find. The room was very comfortable even though the bed was a bit too firm for me. The airconditioning worked well if a little noisily. Unlike some hotels, if you left the A/C on while you were away, the staff didn't turn it off so you returned to a nice cool room. The room was clean and serviceable but nothing fancy. There was a continental breakfast each morning - pastries, cereal, toast, juice and coffee was available. There was an indoor mall on the other side of the interstate and lots of restaurants nearby to choose from. For the inexpensive price we paid, I thought it was a very good value. The only drawback other than the distance to tourist attractions is that the neighborhood is not great and the small swinning pool is not convenient to use (no privacy, shade in later hours or outdoor furniture - it did look clean, but that was from the parking lot - I didn't check closer)
