"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
"More than expected"
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

"Convenient and clean"
Great for weary travelers, staff was accommodating and pleasant.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Overall Great Place"
Only downside would be somewhat difficult to get into due to median in the street. A turnaround and I was there. No big deal. I was very happy with the comfort of the beds. Some items were missing for breakfast but not a big deal. I managed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for the price"
A good cheap hotel. The room was well furnished for the price range, it even had a refrigerator and microwave that we did not ask for or expect for that price. The location was pretty good, it was close to a shopping center and plenty of restaurants.Genuine Expedia guest review
COMPLIMENTARY BREAKFAST WAS VERY BASIC. NO BAGELS!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good only for sleeping in"
Stayed here for Christmas a couple of days. The room was clean and not smelly, beds are comfortable. It's very close to a lot of shopping centers but the area doesn't make me feel safe even on day time. The laundry area is soooo Dirty!! so I have to go across the street to do the laundry.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not at all pleased"
I was not at all pleased with my stay at the Super 8 in El Cajon, CA. I had to make last minute arrangements for a funeral and thought that even though this was a 2 star hotel, it would suffice for a night. I was wrong. When I arrived to check in, the housekeeping staff was all sitting around the office door smoking, which I thought to be unprofessional, […] as well as gross. When I got to my room it was clean, but the pillows were old and disgusting. They were lumpy and hard and smelled bad. The mattress was also hard as a rock. I will not be staying at this hotel again.

"Good for value."
Door to bathroom grinds when opened. Hinge is loose and door appear to be falling off. Elevator reeks of tobacco smell. People were helpful in straitening out screw-up on reservation. Calling the pool a pool is sort of a stretch as appears to be about a 8 x 8 pool.Genuine Expedia guest review
"perfect for what i wanted"
i booked 2 double queen rooms in this area to be close to my sister who lives half a mile from super 8. im not a motel person but after checking out the rooms i agreed to book 4 nights. it worths every penny i spent coz i got it with discount. very clean room, clean/new carpet, comfortable beds, big size room.well equipped new samsung tv, microwave, […] mini fridge, safe(didn't find it in holiday inn la mesa) , iron, AC. and good breakfast as well.

"room not worth price"
For the price of the room flat screens should be included and the breakfast was like jail breakfast . Best western is way better.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I've stayed at this hotel a few times already when I come down to San Diego and sleep comfortably. May I add the times I've been there, I've had the same room twice during my stay. I be stayed there for about 3 weeks one time, then back again for 2 weeks. The staff is great. I will definately be returning back here to stay again when I'm back in San […] Diego. The only thing that I had a problem with was the wifi connection, it's not the great speed but decent. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not a bad choice for the money."
The room was cleaned to perfection every day, including the replenishment of soaps and towels without the need to make a request. The TV selection included HBO and Showtime for free, which was a huge plus. Also, free Wi-Fi helped make the experience all that much nicer. However, a few things do need improvement. The mattresses were harder than those […] found in most modern hotels, the pillows were so old that they were barely over an inch in thickness and well beyond needing replacement (we had to go out and buy our own pillows just to sleep through the night), and the free breakfast would have been better if they served it until 10am instead of 9am. Other than that, the Super 8 El Cajon is a good value. Just remember to bring your own pillows. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A little out of the way, but totally worth it"
It was comfortable, clean and much nicer than I expected. I would ABSOLUTELY reccomend this hotel to anyone planning a trip to the San Diego area. It is not right in the downtown area, but it is practically on top of the freeway entrance, and it is so easy to get anywhere you'd like to go. I loved my stay and I will definetly be back.Genuine Expedia guest review
The stay was pretty comfortable. The hotel has everything you need. For example, the microwave, and refrigerator is convenience even though we did not have to use them. Other than that was pleasant.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Decent room and amenities. Good value. Difficult to access due to island in street and no U turns allowed in area.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Decent, Clean Hotel"
Just needed to find an affordable but decent hotel; I've stayed here before and it has what i need; nothing fancy, just a quiet and clean hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful; breakfast is very limited, but i don't really care much about it, i got what a needed for an affordable price; It's located in a quiet area, gas station right in front of […] it. i was traveling with my husband and niece (3 year old), I do recommend this for family or anyone looking for an affordable, yet decent, clean place to stay.

"Nice Place, Great Service, and Clean"
Overall the hotel was decent. No real complaints except the noise at night. Was alot of walking around on second floor walkway and was easily heard throughout my room. Other than that I'd stay again. Price was right, room was clean and smelled good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good hotel for the price"
My room was very clean, the bed was comfortable, and the walls were thick enough to not hear my neighbors. Overall the stay was nice and the staff were very friendly. It was definitely a good deal for the price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was quite and clean. Bed was very comfortable. A good hotel for the price. I would stay there again. We stayed a week.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not too bad"
Nice TV, comfortable, but older property. Difficult to access from I-8, have to go down, around, and u-turn. Continental breakfast a little lacking. Still, very adequate for what we wanted at the price. Would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good hotel for traveler's"
Clean, comfortable, with a bed, couch and desk. Also had standard amenities of televison, radio, phone, coffee, tea, plus a small refrigerator and microwave which comes in very handy. Air conditioner and heater worked very well. Excellent deal for the overall cost, much better and more affordable than staying in San Diego for a short business trip.Genuine Expedia guest review
