El Cajon offers motels and hotels and in the downtown area. There is one resort, the Sycuan Resort and Casino, located about 5 miles east of downtown.
I have never found a hotel booking site so easy to use. I had my room booked in less than a minute. The hotel where I had planned to stay had an issue. I was panicking. I clicked on HotelGuides' website, got a room, and checked in 15 minutes later.

Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
