Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Hotel review"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Nice, quiet place. Clean. Easy access on-off 80; Denny's right there. Staff was very gracious and accommodating. Will definitely stay there next trip to El Cajon. Only problem was the toilet, but left a note and expect it will be fixed.
