I really like this place. It’s picturesque and great for golfers, but I don’t golf and still enjoyed myself. It’s not very far away from Mast Park in Santee or Viejas Casino (which also happens to have shopping).
Within the resort, it’s a really nice place. The Oaks Bar and Grill not only has a vast menu, it’s decently priced. Which means you don’t have to go very far to get a decent meal for the right price. The lodging is comfortable and colorful and while the place is active, you cannot see into the hotel rooms through the window so there’s still privacy. Also, the people at the front desk are super nice and accommodating. They want to help you feel at home, and they have more information about things to do when you’re out of ideas.

Don't forget to pack your golf clubs when you stay at Carl Oaks! The country club's golf course sits among a lovely setting of trees and ponds.

While the outside of the hotel looks like it hasn't been remodeled for years, the inside of the rooms are a bit more modern. The bathrooms were especially nice and look like they've recently been fixed up. My main issue with the rooms are how dark they are. The darkness seems to be brought on by a combination of the hotel being set against a hillside, which limits the amount of daylight, and the furniture being a dark brown color. The rooms could benefit from some more color.

The staff were friendly though and there's a restaurant on-site if you're feeling like grabbing a bite to eat without driving anywhere.

Nestled back in the neighborhoods of Santee, Carlton Oaks really surprised me with the quality they offered at budget price. From the outside the squat two story building doesn't look like much, but inside, the room was very impressive with seemingly brand new furnishings, and much more space than the standard hotel. Everything was immaculately clean as well.

They consider themselves a 'resort,' so there is a daily $10 fee assessed to the bill. But the trade off is a restaurant, bar, pool, and spa. The also have free WiFi and parking.

The location in Santee makes a car absolutely necessary. They share the grounds with a PGA level golf course, which I imagine is a huge draw for the resort -- they are really out in the country otherwise.

My sister held her wedding here, it was gorgeous and the food was great. They remodeled the hotel and the rooms are gorgeous! The only downside was the staff hushed our family right after the wedding (who stacked the hotel and came from all over) and even brought in a sheriff (WITH GUNS DRAWN) to ask us to be quiet and limit persons per room. It was really a let-down.
