Short 15-20 minute drive to downtown/beach and clean, well-sized rooms. Definitely recommend for budget-cautious traveler.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I was charged 44 on my credit card besides the 65 dollar charge from hotels.com...I called the following day and the associate basically called me a liar...I think it was unprofessional and uncalled for..I have spent many nights at your hotel and this just makes me second guess itGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great Price and a Very Nice Hotel"
The first thing I noticed was that the room smelled nice. It was very well appointed with a microwave and a fridge. The room was neat and clean. The only single drawback would have been not enough towels in the room, but we could have called them for that, we just didn't. It was a really nice room for the price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"very accommodating staff"
nice staff, always willing to help.Genuine Expedia guest review
Hotel staff were rude. Room smelled like mold. Busy foot traffic all night and thin walls...if you are a light sleeper you might want to avoid this hotel. Neighborhood was ghetto.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"No Trailer Parking"
The hotel was right off of Interstate 8, but far enough that there was no traffic sounds. The parking lot was really small and there was no parking for vehicles pulling a trailer. I had to disconnect my trailer and park side by side...very inconvenient. I had asked for a first floor room when booking yet was put on the top floor. Not really an issue, […] but again inconvenient. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The room was very satisfying and convenient to downtown El Cajon. I would utilize this hotel again if staying in the area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is close to I-8 and convenient to lots of restaurants. We were just looking for a 1 night stopover and it met all our expectations. It was undergoing some maintenance/painting at the time but nothing major.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The manager upgraded me to a suite since my other reservation filled. The decor was new and the room was clean and lovely. Bed was on the firm side. It was a great value, I felt.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel was close enough for us. Never to far to go"
Hotel was very clean. Beds were comfortable overall was a nice experience. Would stay there again with no second thoughts about it. Staff cleaned rooms very quickly. 1day we went off the site to do laundry and our room was clean already when we returned. Pleasingly surprised. Rooms are very big and staff very friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Better than the reviews"
Stayed here during an anniversary trip and stayed for 4 nights. Easy access from the freeway. We laterally exited the freeway and were there! (Possibly illegal u-turn to enter though) The check-in staff was not as treacherous as some other reviews stated but the guy wasn't exactly pleasant or talkative either. I had a few apprehensions about our reservation […] from some of the reviews saying that the hotel wouldn't honor them but it wasn't an issue for us. The room was exactly as pictured and was pretty quiet during our stay. We were on the 3rd floor (which my wife and I prefer) at an end next to the staircase. Never found the elevator described in the room fire escape plan but didn't look very hard since we took the stairs the whole time. The room had a mini fridge and microwave that did the job just fine. When we checked out, the staff was pleasant and prompt. We would stay here again, especially since the price is a great value considering it's lower than motel 6 and as nice as a standard best western. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"FRIENDS IN SAN DIEGO"
receptionist (K.D.) was very nice & helpful. just drove in from Arizona 5 hour drive. She let my friends and I check in at 11:30am.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Awesome stay in El Cajon!"
I was very happy with my stay! My fiancée and I decided to get away for the weekend in my hometown and I couldn't be happier with my stay! We arrived at 1130am, well before check in and KD the front desk employee accommodated us with no problem! She made our stay pleasant and even took us to the room to make sure the accommodation was fine for us. The […] neighborhood was in a decent area, but the only draw back was the hotel was hard to find at first as it was blocked by large trees. The room was clean and it was quiet, I would stay again!

"Okay to sleep, but bring your own towels."
Checked in around 8pm. Got up to the room, the yellow walls were black that was a little gross. Later after showering, grabbed a "clean towel" opened it, it was I am hoping stained. Opened another, it was even more gross. One of three was "clean" Only two pillows on the bed, one firm and one soft. Breakfast was cereal, toast or boiled eggs. All in all, […] I will not be going back. I am completely disgusted about the towels. It is really a great location, about 20 min from sea world, the beach etc, but far enough from traffic and the people. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Really great experience"
Had an awesome experience with staff, room and location. Thank you very much for the outstanding jobs each one of you do to make our stay awesome!!! God bless...Genuine Expedia guest review
They need to upgrade the TV's clean the walls spend more time on the bathrooms and bomb the hotel When we woke up my boyfriend saw 2 roaches on the wall so we left about 5:30am we also had to go back when housekeeping came to get our deposit back never againGenuine Expedia guest review
"Customer Service is top of list."
Overall this Motel 8 is a five Star ***** Hotel/Inn. I highly reccommend it. Thank you, Yvonne Dipre'Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Top value of the money"
I just stays overnight here with my family. I was looking for to invest more in other trip expanses than overnight stay. However, did not wanted to compromise with the comfort, security & required facilities. I was hesitating to book it due to it's low rates. But finally went for it... And now looking back, I was quite happy with everything. Designated […] free parking, large room size (we were 2), free Wifi, clean room with all necessary appliances and the big surprise was the quality of the free breakfast, it was awesome. I was most happy with the breakfast because it the most important part while travelling. The only negative thing I would say cleanliness of the Bed wears... It did not looked washed and fresh.... Other that everything was quite okay and perfectly among the top valued cheap hotels I have stays. Top value for your money........ Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I'm all about a budget, especially when traveling for business reasons, but this was not a decent place at all. I didn't realize I had gotten a smoking room, but when I tried to change it, the guy was rude about it and didn't change it. The smell I didn't like right away, the area was scary for a single female, and the room looked like it was gonna […] be clean until you pull the covers down, the sheets looked gross especially the pillow cases. The pillow cases were filthy and flat pillows. Didn't sleep well. You get what you paid for. I definately wouldn't stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Had a nice stay"
I had a good stay :) . It was not bad at all, maybe I will be back again...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Had to stay for 5 days it was comfortable clean and easy to get on the 8 and 67. would stay again. everyone was nice. they did have breakfast everyday but cant comment since I never ate it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Our daughter lives in El Cajon and we visit frequently. We have stayed in other hotels in the area and to be honest, this one is the lesser of several evils. The rates are very good and the location is perfect for us. Unfortunately, there are no newer hotels in this area. The deciding factors for us is the great little café next door (Perry's) and the […] fact that my husband, who has a very bad back, is comfortable in the bed. I like the size of the upgraded king room with the sofa as it is convenient for family visits. Be sure to bring slippers as the carpets haven't been cleaned in years and don't plan to use the 'pool'.

"Don't Stay Here"
This place is a dump, and in a neighborhood that appears less than desirable. The room was non-smoking, but the smell of smoke still lingered in the room. You want internet access? Forget it, wifi doesn't work; you can get on, but don't expect it to last. If you are thinking of staying here, don't! Spend a few more bucks and go to La Mesa...Oh, BTW, […] the bathroom lights worked some of the time... Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Simple, standard hotel."
Stayed 5 days while searching for apartment. Room very clean, some recent upgrades, close to highways and walking distance to El Cajon center restaurants and shopping. Simple but fresh breakfast of breads, cereals, muffins, hard boiled eggs, fruit, coffee and tea. Washer & dryer on 3rd floor that worked well for just $1.00 each. Location is good for […] another reason. I felt safe here. Neighborhoods nearby. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to the 8."
Politeness counts. I received that upon check in. Room was clean. One of the lamps didn't work by my bed. All we needed was a bed to spend the night in San Diego county. It was ok. IDK if due to the Comic Con event,every place within the country seemed over priced! Being close to the 8 was a plus for us.Genuine Expedia guest review
"ComicOn Weekend Hotel"
I have no complaints of my stay here. all of SD was sold out but I managed to grab a room here last minute for about 4X the normal amount but that's because of the demands for rooms in SD at the time so understandable. given how full the hotel was it was quiet. no issues with my car/neighbors. had good channels and good pillows tho the bed was a bit […] stiff. worked well in a pinch and if you are looking to save a few bucks id recommend staying here!

"better than nothing"
we had to cancel oringinal hotel stay because location given on site was totally off of where the actual location was....only room available was this one (4th of july)....so it was better than not having a room. staff was friendly and curteous.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean and Spacious"
Encountered several different staff members in the lobby. All were friendly. The rooms are large and clean. Guests arriving at the last minute for breakfast always had a fresh supply of pastries, beverage and boiled eggs available. Large rooms have microwaves, refrigerators and tables. Great for meals and getting work done.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We were visiting San Diego but were on a budget and didn't want to stay in the city. This hotel was just a short drive out of town, and a great place to crash for the night. Definitely worth the extra few minutes for the money we saved compared to staying in town.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Don't let the facade fool you."
When I got there and saw the exterior I tough: "What I've done" because it looks old and ugly. But to my surprise the room was clean and big. Air conditioning, fridge, micro oven and wi fi. Don't get me wrong, this is not marriot but fopr the price paid it is very good.Genuine Expedia guest review
The morning front desk/breakfast bar lady was very nice and helpful. The young man who was at the desk at sign-in was also very friendly and helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Would go again"
We just needed an inexpensive place to stay for a sports tournament. It was clean and very quiet. Definitely not fancy by any means, but worked for our needs .Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Very comfortable. The desk clerk was great and helpful. It is kind of nice to have someone look you in the face and smile.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
