Stayed for the Lakeside rodeo. Easy check in and out, clean room. Had all the basics with a fridge and microwave too. Neighborhood was ok. Not very noisy and a pretty decent breakfast included as well.

I booked this motel because of the rating om Trip Advisor and the picture that was on hotels.com. Both were misleading. The motel is not as nice as the picture shows it.We had cockroaches climbing the walls. The continental breakfast is very minimal.Pastries were stale. Three small tables with two chairs each for the breakfast crowd,on this big motel. I will not return to this motel!

Short weekend stay. Right near the highway. Small property. Loud at 12-4 am on a Sat night. Room clean but around the elevator was gross. Breakfast was bare bones carb fare. I ate a banana and had coffee. I ate at the cafe in the same parking lot. Good food.

We choose to stay in this hotel when travelling to visit family in the area. Have stayed in a couple other places but this one has the advantage of Perry's cafe right across the parking lot. Area is not real good but we have no reason to go out after dark. Reasonably clean, large rooms with comfortable beds.

Was given a room that was stinking a lot. Seems like it was a smoking room that was converted as a non smoking. There were stains on the sheets and the bed spread had a burn hole. Water from the sink never had pressure. The TV was having a lot of noise. Overall we were very disappointed by our stay.

Attended a wedding in San Diego and the reception was in El Cajon at a hall just across the street. I wasn't too familiar with the area so planned on going with the recommendation of a holiday inn about 6 miles away. Luckily, I found the super 8 literally right across the street. Only stayed there for a night so not a ton of things I can comment on; however, overall I was very pleased with the room especially for the price! We had just finished staying downtown San diego for a night to explore but the size and amenities in this room trumped that and for only half the price! Picked a non-smoking room and it was very clean. Towels were fresh, nice fridge and couch area to entertain some other guests who had stayed at the hotel as well. Not sure the next time I will be in El Cajon but I know this will be my first option.

I have been giving this hotel great reviews. My third stay happened to have a big spa tub over crowding the room but my husband and I was happy to be able to do something different. We went out and got stuff to put in the tub and it didn't work. The hotel clerk failed to mention that. No other room had the spa either. I was also missing the coffee maker and iron (had to call for those) and my HBO and showtime guides were for the previous month. I have a non refundable/changeable booking for this week and needed to change it for next week and they approved it without any long sob stories so they still get 2thumbs up from me.

I have stayed here several times while visiting family. It seems to get a little better every time I go with noticeable updates here and there (like new tile in the bathroom area). My last stay left a good impression. The room was clean and comfortable. The folks at the front desk were pleasant and helpful. The free continental breakfast was nice and had the basics covered. Free WiFi was fast enough for light web browsing and social networking, but not for streaming HD video. Overall it was a good experience and I'll stay there again.

Nice hotel for the price, recently renovated from the looks of it. Beds are comfortable enough, it's a little noisy being near the main street and highway but ear plugs can solve that. Overall if you're in a pinch and need a reasonable place to stay for one night you can't go wrong here.

We stayed here one night on our way to an event in San Diego. We checked in very late at night (2:30 AM). The man at the front desk wasn't rude, but he wasn't friendly either. Once we got checked in to our room we realized the AC didn't work. They offered to switch our room, but the only room they had was on the third floor (we were on the first). We had already unpacked our stuff for the night and were in pajamas...we didn't think it was worth it to change rooms. The room was clean. But the beds were pretty hard. We basically only slept in this hotel and continued our trip in the morning. The neighborhood was great (close to downtown, restaurants, shopping, etc.). It was a cheap place to stay for just the night. I might give this hotel another try.

We arrived rather late in the evening, and when we approached the lobby the front desk clerk was actually wheeling something out of the lobby and asked us to wait a few minutes. Other than that, check-in went smoothly. Our room was on the 3rd floor, and was fairly clean and quiet. Not spectacular, especially considering that it was listed as being an "upgraded" room. It was pretty average. We noticed that the swimming pool is about the size of a postage stamp, which means that it's not really a pool you can swim in.

I needed a room that could accommodate myself and powered wheelchair and Super 8 had exactly what I needed. The room was just right and was much more comfortable than others I have stayed in and at a very affordable price. The bathroom was ADA compliant and was a joy to use, fold down bench in shower stall and toilet were easy to maneuver for my chair. The management staff, office staff and cleaning/maintenance staff were very friendly and non-intrusive. The complimentary coffee and continental breakfast were an added bonus to an already enjoyable experience. If I for some other reason need a temporary place to sleep I will think of Super 8 first and foremost. It was a pleasure staying there for 2 1/2 days.

I thought that this super 8 would like like a basic Motel 6. The whole room was filled with upgrades from the furniture to the bedding, bathroom, and sink area. Once my boyfriend arrived he had the same reaction and I didn't even give him a heads up. Hopefully it wasn't just room 211 because I plan to go there again real soon and often!

Very friendly and professional staff. A bit far from San Diego, but good for the price. The area has many restaurants and supermarkets. Plenty of parking spaces on hotel campus.

I enjoyed my stay and would definitely stay here again. My room was updated and was very clean. Staff was very nice and when I checked out it was painless.

It was a decent room, we left in the morning and got back early afternoon and our room wasn't even cleaned. We stayed there two nights without housekeeping. I was able to get towels and trash bags from the cleaning people however. A/C worked wonderfully!

The bathroom smelled like sewage everytime we used the shower/bathtub. The pool was tiny and greenish. I was shocked to see it was open to the public and that people were actually using it.
