It was a very clean and comfortable large room (2 queen size beds). The General Manager and staff were very friendly and efficient. Continental breakfast was good. We are looking forward to future stays at the Santee Best Western.

Overall, this place was OK. Room looked like it was redone, but be aware there is no elevator to the second floor. The floor in the bathroom was pretty dirty -- we left a towel on the floor as a rug. Breakfast was fine -- lots of choices. Not sure I'd stay here again due to noise issues but it...

I read positive & negatives. My take is, that I would stay here again. The room looks redone. TV has a lot of channels. Toiletries sufficient. Bed is comfortable. Quiet at night.

We have to go to San Diego often, as my mother is in a convalescent home. We always stay at Best Westerns, and have had excellent experiences, so much so that this time we invited friends to join us.
