Affordable

Cons: Breakfast could be better. Doughnuts would be nice, and cereal, too.
The hotel accommodations are sparse, but for the price they were ok. The room was very small and the furniture was pretty beat up and dirty. The beds had very firm mattresses. We had a smoking room which needed to be aired out before we could relax, but fortunately there was a strong ocean breeze that cleared the room air nicely. Even though the hotel is on a busy street, it was surprisingly quiet at night. The bathtub didn't look very clean and one of the beds had cigarette burns in the bedspread. The swimming pool is small. Breakfast consisted of small pastries and either coffee or orange juice. The coffee was good. If you're on a tight budget and just need a place to sleep, this is not too bad.

Good value

I stayed at the Rodeway In Santee for 3 nights while on a business trip to the nearby airport in El Cajon. The hotel was okay for the rate paid, after all it is a budget hotel. The room looked as if it were remodeled recently and upgraded with: new carpet, furniture, sink faucet and new tile in the bathroom. The shower worked well with good water pressure. The furniture was modern and had also been upgraded recently. The staff were friendly and accommodating. I will stay at this hotel again when I'm doing business in the nearby area. The area surrounding the hotel and the town of El Cajon is pretty industrial and I wouldn't stay there if I were vacationing in San Diego, there are much nicer hotels by the coast, but cost more of course! Having said that this hotel was located conveniently close to a new shopping area with plenty of restaurants and event a Barnes and Nobles. The end of the Trolley line is also in the same shopping area which gives access to downtown San Diego and some of the attractions.

Don't Stay Here

Upon pulling down the bedspread, we discovered several pubic like hairs on the blanket beneath. Under the bed, we found a rag, bottle caps, and potato chips. After our discoveries, we immediately checked out but were still charged for the night. What a dump. Stay away.
