Verified Reviews of Econo Lodge Inn & Suites El Cajon San Diego East

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Run Down"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
I didn't feel comfortable sleeping here. As soon as I opened the door I noticed the chairs were worn. I was scared to lay on the bed. They didn't look like they've been wash and I was worried it might have had bed bugs. The bathroom was worn as well. I didn't want to shower or use the bathroom. I was also worried about having to watch my car. And needing to stay up to make sure no one tries to come in the door. It was an uncomfortable experience.

"The lodging was terribly overpriced and I was actually charged an extra 10.00 upon check in."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
I would not reccomend this property to anyone. It was not worth $190.00 by any streatch of the imagination. The location was right off the freeway which was fine however, I drove right past it as it was tucked away behind other structures and in a neighborhood that I didn't feel safe in. I drove for quite a ways to find a Sprouts grocery store to purchase food. I didn't find any resturants that I'd feel safe dining at as a single woman. I won't ever stay at this hotel chain again!
