Rodeway Inn Santee San Diego East

Recent guest reviews

If you're looking for just basic accommodations, this isn't a bad place to stay.

Great location close to shopping and restaurants. Somewhat run-down and in need of updating. No pets allowed but people had dogs in the hotel. The continental breakfast consisted of packaged rolls and coffee. Understanding that it was a holiday, the hotel was still overpriced. We would not stay in this particular hotel in the future.

The old filipino lady staff was so awesome to accomodate all our needs.

This hotel was bought by me and my boyfriend for an overnight stay. The hotel is cheap (one of the cheapest we found in San Diego that allowed individuals who were 19 to check in) and has everything you need for a one night stay. The pool however is very small and I would suggest that you request a room that doesn't face the road because you could clearly hear cars, however, the sound of the air did a good job at blocking this out. The beds were okay not the comfiest but not hard either. The bathroom was very clean besides a few marks on the toilet from wear and tear. Great water pressure. There was no blow dryer (which I didn't need but I know a lot of people wonder). There were plenty of outlets and lights. There is a shopping center two minutes away which is very adorable it's called trolley center and there actually is a trolley that runs through it. In the center there is a Chilis an Olive Garden and a target (not sure what else). We stayed in room 202 which had a single queen bed. They provide two small hand soaps and a shampoo. Overall I would recommend especially if you're just looking for somewhere to sleep.

It was great having a refrigerator but it would have been nice to have a hair dryer. Everything else was great.

This motel, although acceptable, is overpriced. You are not getting your money's worth. I have stayed in much nicer motels for the same amount of money. The free breakfast is in fact, stale packs of oatmeal, or some cereal bars. Sad. No decaf coffee. I stayed on a Friday night and was woke up several times overnight by loud guests. Not the motel's fault of course, but, the overnight clerk should have put an end to it. Would check out nearby motels before staying here again.

Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Allowed 3 hour early checkin. Also switched room to first floor to accommodate my bad knees and ankle

This was a booking that was done on short notice that was in a central location with a clean and tidy room with off street parking and friendly staff, I would stay there again. I found the price to be reasonable considering the short notice and the proximity to everything

this location is right next to the shopping center/troll station. perfect location!

I loved the low prices and it was literally a block away from the trolly center so it would be great for anyone who's just visiting out here. I was disappointed in there "Continental Breakfast" which consisted of coffee, OJ, and cinnamon buns (The kind that are in plastic and always horrible). The only other thing was my husband is a smoker and i'm not so he would step on the front porch to smoke and leave the door open so we could talk, the lady in the office called us 3x saying to keep it down b/c some one 'might' complain....rude. But b/c it was so conveniently placed we'd stay there again.

There was no iron or hair dryer which we were counting on having.

My son came into town and needed a place to stay. We got him a room here.... It was close and convenient and the rates were good.

the room is comfortable and quiet

The rooms were to small and they need alot of maintenance.

Nothing special about the place. Received a smoking room instead of a nonsmoking room, was not happy about that. We were there early enough so availability shouldn't have been the problem. Would not stay there again.

Clean and friendly staff. Close to shops and restaurants. Continental breakfast is really just a snack of Nutri-Grain bars.
