The AC was extremely noisy and we had to switch to another room.

The room was nice. The Club house food was really good. The walls were kinda thin and the neighboring person started watching tv at around 6am.

nice enough place. Tv is a little small for the distance from the bed but functional. Rest of room is ok. People in the restaurant, front desk, and throughout were all excellent.

Right on a golf course. Nice restaurant and grounds. The pool and hot tub were in great condition and clean. Just ask for towels before you leave the front desk and return them. You have to tell them your room number. If you’re looking for something close to the beach, try another place. This is more for golfers and sits in the middle of many homes in the Santee area.

We love staying here when we are in the San Diego area!

No hidden surprises. Everything they quoted was true. Nice place to stay. Would book again.

Nice place with a great bar and eating area. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are good with good prices.

Nothing special about this place. Got harassed for walking on the golf course side walk after about only 5 minutes. Guess they have nothing better to do than harass guest trying to get some exercise. No Microwave in room. A bowl of oatmeal in the restaurant was almost $6.00, get real !!!

Attended our grandson's graduation and stayed here. Our room was super clean and loved having the refrigerator to keep our complimentary water cold! We golfed on their challenging and fun course. Enjoyed relaxing and having lunch in the nice pool area with sunny and shady spots available. Everyone at this hotel was very professional and friendly. We love staying here whenever we are visiting our grandson.

Very comfortable and clean. Beautiful place to stay and enjoy the outside surroundings. Restaurant was nice and affordable with good food and friendly staff. Great place to relax! The room was very spacious as well with everything you need. Loved it!

Beautiful peaceful place to spend a great weekend

Nice spot, especially for the money. Family live in east county. Much better than santee Motel 8!

Surprisingly clean and refreshing room. Recently updated with new bathrooms and bedding. Located on a golf course with an excellent bar and surprisingly good restaurant.

We chose to stay at this hotel even though it was out of the way and had bad reviews because of the price and availability. We didn't really have any of the problems that other people had been complaining about, like bugs or checking-in. The room was old, but clean and spacious. The view was beautiful and made the quick stay a cool experience. Good news for the future: they are planning a renovation that looks really nice, which will be done around September.

I was over charged by the hotel and they did not know how it works when you book online

Some of the review of this place were pretty bad and I only went for it because of the extremely reasonable price. I personally had no problems with this place. It was clean and quiet and I had no problems checking in or checking out.

We have stayed here before, in fact several months ago. However, due to the economy, they now only serve breakfast on Sat. and Sun. mornings. They used to have a great breakfast menu and chef but they have had to cut back on these also. Sad!

When we walked into the room and saw ants crawling on the desk and refrigerator I was a little disgusted. Then we realized they were on the walls and on the beds and we called the front desk to transfer rooms. They did not have any rooms available so they sent someone to the room to spray- well I am pregnant and we had to leave the room for a couple hours so it could air out before we returned. The golf course that the hotel is on was just beautiful but it didn't make the room any better for us. Hope you have a better experience than us:)

Totally unsatisfactory... The room smelled. The toilet didn't operate very well. Bathroom sink didn't drain. Beds uncomfortable. Amenities that were to be provided in the room weren't there. After one night my wife and I left for another hotel.

Dear Guest, We apologize for the AC unit inconvenience. Although our housekeeping and maintenance staff do their best to upkeep the rooms, it's sometimes hard to predict when such an issue will arise. But we're happy that the room change solved the issues. Visit us soon!
