“Motel Should be Condemned!”
Reviewed 16 April 2006

Went the to stay, because i was working out of town.
50 Dollars a night sounded good for two people to share the room. Was planning on staying till saturday, BUT!
There was a man there with a dirty security sweater that walked with a limp who was in charge there, i guess?
He took gave me a room the was dirty with burn marks all over the dam room. The place smeled like mold. someone could easily braek into it. There were a bunch of old dirty people walking around as well as tweekers(Meth Heads). I demanded my money back! The place should be burned down!

The El Cajon Lodge,(El cajon, california) had to be the worst lodge since the Deer park motor inn, (Long Island Ny). I will insert pictures once I get them developed. To begin I will start with all the pros:

free cable.

Now for the cons:

Horrible, Horrible customer service.
Filty rooms
Filty towels
Broken window in bathroom
hard to turn on shower (must pull with max force)
Signs indicating not responsible for theift for car or items in room (it must happen often)
Tiny uncomfortable pillows
Cheap toilet paper that sticks to moisture(gross)
Frig didn't work
Nothing pluged in when we entered
Really thin walls, can hear everybody what they are doing and what they have to say.
Plus no remote for tv

I write this so that you may spread the word that people should read and write reviews on their stay. We all need to get our moneys worth.
