"Hotel downgraded"

Terri B, Williamsburg, Virginia 23/11/2022

The room door had a 1/2" gap at the bottom. Could see light from outside coming in. The energy efficiency was going out the door. The flooing was replaced with LVP. Makes room feel less cozy. There was a recliner the room.

"Over priced stay."

ae4650t, Bonita Springs, Florida 10/11/2022

First things first, this place is an older, one-story motel, which is nice for older travelers. Our room was big and clean, and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was small and could use an update. The breakfast was terrific, and the attendant kept everything fully stocked. But the worst thing about our room was the 3/4-inch gap under the entrance door, which required us to use towels to keep the small critters outside. For the price point, this should not happen.

"Okay stay, barely."

I4586UXmarct, Kennebunkport, Maine 09/11/2022

We've stayed here three times during the past three years. Room is comfortable but the bathrooms are terrible. This last stay tipped the boat over. The shower head just gushed out, almost impossible to shower. It's an. old motel but there's no reason not to update the tub/shower. Breakfast ran out of fresh fruit and oNo yogurt which is pretty much standard fare. Room was quiet and lean. The price point is a bit high for what you get.

"Memorable anniversary stay "

Lucysand34561, South Carolina 07/11/2022

One of the cleanest hotels We have stayed in! Such a lovely experience. Staff was so friendly and accommodating and made our holiday so special! It was our anniversary so it was extra special! Highly recommend

"Very nice hotel!"

User 02/11/2022

A very nice, well decorated hotel, with friendly, professional staff, clean, comfortable rooms, and a very nice breakfast! Loved that it was a one story, and had a nice area to walk around, and a nearby golf course. Definitely plan to stay there again.

"Great place to stay and pet friendly"

michelleaN1839AZ, wanaque nj 24/10/2022

This was our my 2nd stay here , both trips with my dog along . Pet rooms were both CLEAN and large .Bed was wonderful , shower worked great ( many times there was no pressure where I have stayed before ...that was not an issue here) ...Breakfast was wonderful , several HOT items ( entries) are offered as were fruits an take away items .all were fresh and plentiful...I recommend you stay here .


User 19/10/2022

It was pretty clean and the reception was very hospitable. Good continental breakfast. Pool looked clean but didn't use it, too cold out. Driving range right next to the hotel with lights open till 10:00 pm.

"Peaceful stop along 95"

amynsomd, Waldorf 09/10/2022

After finding out that the usual hotels we stay at were full, we saw this Best Western. Front clerk was cheerful, and told us where we could park our trailer ( I'm not that good at backing up). Best fridge! Had room for everything in our cooler, and a freezer section for the ice packs. Not like those miniature ones elsewhere. Also, the microwave is a reasonable size. Best pillows, too, not like the marshmallow ones at the other place. Honestly, will look for BW plus signs on the highway from now on.

"True Southern charm and hospitality"

TLasko, Palm Coast, Florida 09/10/2022

Everything was perfect from the clean room to the good breakfast to the exceptional staff (everyone). The kng size bed was very comfortable. The channel selection was enough. Again, everyone who worked there was pleasant and professional.

"Good motel in convenient location"

Tcorujo722, Brooksville, Florida 07/10/2022

Hotel had great breakfast. Comfortable rooms. All on the first floor with parking right in front of your room. I felt it was someone overpriced considering it needed upgrading. The room was clean. But vomited to other BW motels, it was outdated.

"Everything OK"

James F, Atlanta, Georgia 27/09/2022

One night stay in September 2022. Overall: everything ok. Positives: clean, can park outside by front door, good location: next to good restaurant; quiet; safe area; good place for dog because open field adjacent. Things to be aware of: have pet fee per night; breakfast adds no value for me (most food unhealthy and not that appetizing; better to have juice and good quality coffee)

"Best Cozy, Charming hotel in the area!"

JLM482, Hickory, North Carolina 25/09/2022

This family hotel is very charming, always very clean, the staff are always amazing, the breakfast can't be beat. Love the pool, all the plants, shade provided, etc. Can't beat the price either. Just love this place!

"Overpriced low end motel"

vinced431, Boca Raton, Florida 16/08/2022

Overpriced low end motel. It is clean and comfortable, but you can get a better deal elsewhere. Creepy person standing guard at the breakfast buffet with a "tip jar". There are several other hotels within walking range of this one (like Fairfield) that you may want to contact for price comparisons.

"Great stopover hotel"

ilvdisney, Bellingham, Massachusetts 14/08/2022

This hotel is a great hotel to stopover on the way to Florida. You drive your car right up to the room so it is easy to load and unload luggage. There are lots of places to eat amd get gas nearby. Nice clean rooms. Front desk staff is friendly and efficient.

"Friendly, Clean, Southern Charm"

User 23/07/2022

An absolute great stay! The rooms aren't fancy, but they are clean, cozy, and quiet. The breakfast was the best hotel breakfast I've ever had, plenty of options and helpful attendants as well. If you're looking for a clean and safe place for your family, this is it!

"Best pool EVER"

User 15/07/2022

The staff was amazing and friendly. The rooms were very clean. The beds were clean and comfy. The best part of our entire stay was the neat pool area. The pool was warm and very relaxing. There's no loud noise so we had a great nights sleep.

"Beware of extra charges"

jk3131, Philadel 15/07/2022

The property is fine. Exactly what you would expect from a budget hotel near the interstate. Room was just fine but lots of seedy people. Beware of all the extra fees and surcharges that this property will try to tack onto your bill if you aren't paying attention. We got hit with an extra $200 fee that we are having to dispute with our credit card company.

"May have priced themselves out of my staying"

RDCFL2022, Stuart, Florida 23/06/2022

Motel is clean enough, have stayed here several times. They have a good breakfast offering. But it seems they have doubled their pet fee and increased the room price. i will consider a new hotel in the area on my next trip.

"Decent Value, easy access off I 95"

User 13/06/2022

Great hotel for travel up and down I 95. It is easy to get on and off, the staff are very pleasant. The rooms are a little dated. I understand that a proposed renovation was postponed due to the pandemic but is scheduled to be complete by the end of the year. Clean, can park your car in front of your room, no stairs to deal with.

"Wonderful staff"

User 01/06/2022

This hotel is right off I95. Friendly, helpful staff. Convenient parking in front of room. Pet area is lit at night. Pet-friendly rooms are a little shabby, but all the positives outweigh the decor. Very close to local golf courses.

"Very nice, pet-frienfly hotel"

Audrey K, Sayville, New York 18/05/2022

Friendly staff, nice room, pet-friendly, nice breakfast. We felt very safe there, too. It was convenient to pull right up to our room. The room was clean and comfortable. There are grassy areas surrounding the parking areas to walk dogs. A great overnight stay while traveling to Florida.

"We'll be back!"

User 12/05/2022

This Best Western offers discounted rates for military veterans, which is greatly appreciated. The rooms were spotless, beds comfortable, and the breakfast selection was good. Overall, it was a good stay!

"Friendly, Clean hotel"

waves40, Davenport, Iowa 30/04/2022

WE found this place on our way to NC and we will return. The place is dated but the rooms are very clean, towels thick and the employees very friendly. we sat by the heated pool and enjoyed talking to other guests. Their breakfast was super for me as a gluten free person. They offered several choices which is rare.

"Nice place to stay"

Rufous72, Delmar, New York 30/04/2022

This is a very nice Best Western. The beds are really comfortable. The AC is quiet. The person who checked us in was very nice but not very knowledgeable about the area. We have stayed there a couple of times on out way home from Florida and will plan to do so again next year.


Connie H, Great Bend, Pennsylvania 29/04/2022

First time at this location. Will definitely stay here again on our trip next season. Rooms were very clean. Breakfast was very good. Only one problem…toilet room was very tight could barely turn around. Otherwise a very nice stay.

"Pleasantly surprised"

User 27/04/2022

Best Western was very clean and comfortable. Although we had plans for breakfast elsewhere, their breakfast buffet smelled and looked amazing. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We will definitely stay here again.

"Nice stay, clean room"

User 14/04/2022

Greeted by friendly staff. Room was clean, decent size, and had an easy chair which my husband liked. Breakfast was standard fare of scrambled eggs, oatmeal, waffles, etc. Nice seating on the outside front patio. Ate at Clark's Inn Restaurant which is on the other side of the freeway and was good.


A3129DHfrankp, Syracuse, New York 10/04/2022

This place was a dump. The room odor was over whelming. I had to open windows which weren't secured to air the room out. There were no screens in the windows. We had a coupon we received at the welcoming center but they claimed all those rooms were taken. Scam. Don't be fooled by the western pluss crap.

Linda Springs, General Manager at Best Western Plus Santee Inn, responded to this review
I don't think you stayed here at our hotel. Best Western Plus Santee Inn Santee SC. Our rooms are in great condition and do not have an odor. Most importantly our windows do not open. And we do not have a coupon in those books. If you don't mind giving me a call at 803--854-3089. Look forward to hearing from you. Thanks Kimberly Smith

"Great Hotel!"

MacynMillie, Millsboro, Delaware 04/04/2022

The BW Santee rooms are very clean and comfortable. The property is close to I95; however, you cannot hear the highway from your hotel room. We always stay at this hotel because the staff is friendly, and they have a great breakfast buffet. Our dogs also enjoy staying here.

"Clean rooms, great breakfast and comfortable beds"

leroymonam, Powhatan, Virginia 02/04/2022

Clean rooms, great breakfast and comfortable beds. Room included a fridgerator and microwave. We travel with our dog and this is a pet friendly hotel. Many room amenities with internet, extra seating, access for electronic devices and a beautiful swimming pool. Staff are super friendly


Theresa H, Fairfax 31/03/2022

If you like a gross breakfast and nasty room, please by all means stay at this property! Shame on them! We were given a so called "pet room", the strange thing was that we didn't have a pet! Barking dogs, fleas and other bugs in the room, the place was filthy! Shame on this location! I have stayed here for over 55 years, and will never be returning to this dump!

"Cute and clean"

mandykoeppe, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania 29/03/2022

Absolutely surprised by this little gem next to a nice driving range and golf course! Quaint and cute inside and out! I wish we had the time to use the pool… it was definitely inviting, warm, and landscaped nice. Nothing to complain about here - We were very pleased with our stay after a long day of driving from PA, on our way to Charleston. I wouldn't change much here… it is an older place and needs some updating but overall the staff was friendly, the room was clean, the beds and pillows were comfy, the air conditioner worked well, and it was convenient to a nice restaurant next door and many convenience stores/gas stations to fill up at before continuing our trip. I would definitely stay here again, if I ever make it down south again!

"Beautifully maintained!"

carlton2015, Richmond, Virginia 22/03/2022

This property was beautifully maintained! Staff was friendly and professional! Room had easy access and was quiet. Congratulations to the staff and management for maintaining this property as top shelf!

"The perfect to-go overnight stop."

focawife, Fort Pierce, Florida 19/03/2022

On every stay, at Best Western Plus in Santee, SC, I am treated like family. Every member of their staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The daily breakfast is excellent and the beds are terrific! Always a pleasure.

"Good stay"

brettnyc, Cape Coral, Florida 18/03/2022

Clean and quiet.. rooms do need a paint job.. and breakfast the eggs were a lil sandy .. but the saving grace was the waffle machine.. but other than that it was a oasis during a long road trip.. pool looked nice and clean but didnt use.. check in was easy ..

"Highly Recommended Road Trip Stop"

gem70, Philadelphia 12/03/2022

We stayed here (family of four) for one night on our way to Florida. It is an older-appearing motel, but the lobby was spotless and care had gone into its decorating. The motel is one floor, so we liked driving right up to our room so late at night & going right in to bed. The room was very clean, beds were comfortable. Hairdryer was great as were individual toiletries. We did not use the pool but the pool area was sparkling. There was a complete breakfast that had lots of choices for everyone. The motel is easy on-off from I-95, and Starbucks, Bojangles and other restaurants are within a block. Very good value for the money & would highly recommend.

"“Not bad” for one night"

Kathy B, Falmouth, Massachusetts 11/03/2022

The room and bathroom are in need of a renovation. The room was as clean as the housekeeping staff could achieve. My husband and I kept saying throughout our stay this Best Western is “not bad”. So, for one night, on your way to or from Florida, when you don't want to spend a lot, it's Not Bad.

"Clean and great location right off I95."

Ang1119, Fort Lauderdale, Florida 03/03/2022

It was a perfect for our drive to Florida with my dog. The hotel was right off I95. Check in was easy, parking right in front of hotel room, and lots of grassy area for my dog. When we walked into the room it smelled sanitized, which we loved, and very clean. The free buffet breakfast was fantastic. There is a Starbucks and gas station a block away. All in all it was the perfect over night stay.

"Vety good"

User 15/02/2022

Convenient location off I95 with very amicable staff. I have been staying here at least The last 10 years and there has never been a problem. Only downer was that the restaurant next door was closed on a Sunday.

"Great place"

lisazedge, Wilmington, North Carolina 13/02/2022

Wonderful experience. Enjoy the cleanliness of the property as well as the quietness. Staff was informative. This was my second stay at the property and I was impressed once again. Will definately return.

"A clean less expensive option"

dbfirearms, Statesville, North Carolina 07/02/2022

This was a golf trip for my buddy and myself. This motel is located within walking distance to Lake Marion Golf Club, which was one of the courses we were playing. The room was clean, the beds were comfortable, the heat/air unit was quiet and the Wi-Fi was excellent. Good restaurants close by and a well stocked free breakfast was included. Overall good experience.

"Best Western Plus Santee South Carolina"

User 03/02/2022

All the staff were friendly and professional. The location was close to the exit off I95 and there were several nice restaurants close by. The internet was not working when we got to our room which we reported. We left to go to dinner and it was working when we got back.

"Tall on promises, short on delivery"

User 31/01/2022

Cobwebs behind the TV. Heavy dust across the top of the TV and bed. There was no input selection on the TV that would allow me to use my Roku for Netflix. There were gaps around the entire exterior door (room 107) that allowed cold air to come in on a frigid night. We could hear our "neighbors" banging around in their room.

"Trip South"

User 29/01/2022

This hotel is a older hotel but nicely kept up. This was the 3rd hotel we stayed at on our trip from the north to Florida and was the nicest. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was the best and very plentiful with a good variety of choices. Will definitely stay here again.

"Excellent all around stay!"

Peter J, Pittsfield Ma, United States 25/01/2022

If you are traveling on I95 near Santeria SC, I highly recommend the Best Western. The staff was friendly. The rooms were spotless. The beds are as comfortable as can be. Plenty of pillows. Refrigerator, microwave. The breakfast was excellent, good quality and plentiful. It was near 40 degrees, the pool looked very inviting but too cold to try it out. Average price but worth every dollar.

"Best Western Plus-Santee"

happycatt, Phila 23/01/2022

We love staying at this Best Western. The staff is great. They are very helpful. The breakfast area as well as the rest of the hotel is very clean. We stay at this hotel every time we travel South. The restaurant next door, The Captains Quarters is delicious.

"Great hotel for traveling"

E4092MZsusanc, Cobbs Creek, Virginia 19/01/2022

Great place to stay while traveling. Friendly staff. Great parking for our truck and boat we were towing. Nice walking in area. Stopped in at Gina's antique, consignment store. Excellent restaurant Captains Quarters for dinner. Free breakfast okay but typical of free breakfasts.

"What we expected"

skarna, North Carolina, USA 18/01/2022

Very clean; friendly helpful staff; liked being able to park outside the room. During the online reservation process I hit a snag. A short conversation with BW customer service resulted completing the reservation efficiently. In addition the rep noticed that I had not signed up for double rewards in effect at that time; he did it for me automatically as he told me what he noticed. The bathroom was fairly small, but otherwise the room had enough space for comfort.

"Great hotel off I 95"

mboyle514, Bronx, New York 13/01/2022

Great hotel nice big rooms with recliner chair Comfortable bed even had stand to help us up and down the high bed Clean room with nice TV Beds comfortable Front Desk person who checked us in was very nice Great free breakfast in the morning and great service Will be back again

"Perfect place to stop"

User 12/01/2022

This is our favorite place to spend the night traveling south. It is clean, quiet, and all the staff very nice. The rooms are nicely furnished and the beds very comfortable. Checkin and check out are quick and easy. We highly recommend this hotel!

"Very Convenient, Clean"

mcprises, New York City, New York 04/01/2022

This motel lived up to Best Western standards. It is a motel and it is off I-95, on Old Number 6 Highway. It sits directly on a main road, which some may not like. But there are plenty of dining, gas around. Staff was friendly, the room was clean and the door was secure.

"Average Best Western"

E7436SDstuarth, Lakeland, Florida 01/01/2022

The Santee Best Western is neither the best nor the worst I've stayed at (I stay at BWs mostly when traveling, if available). There was no option for disabled-accessible rooms when I made the reservation online, so I was stuck with a non-accessible room and it made things difficult. BW would do well to make these more generally available, and to upgrade the accessible rooms they have to include, e.g., walk-in or wheelchair-accessible showers rather than just bathtubs with handles. They could also do more to include healthier eating options for the breakfast buffet.

"Great place to stay while travelling South."

Lawrence P, Franklin, United States 30/12/2021

This was our fifth stay at the Best Western in Santee,South Carolina. As always we were most pleased with the room, the service, the check in process and the speed of checkout. The breakfast (included with the cost of the room) was excellent. We had a 7 hour drive after checkout and the breakfast kept us satisfied till we reached our destination. Highly recommend Best Western Santee.

"Excellent experience"

974mariannew, Jensen Beach, Florida 25/12/2021

We travel from Florida to Virginia frequently and this was our first day at the best Western Plus Santee Inn. The room was immaculate, the bed extremely comfortable and the value was excellent. This will be our go to place to stay in future trips.

"A Real Gem!"

User 25/12/2021

As soon as we pulled up, we knew it would be a great place to stay.. The outside was decorated so nicely and inviting..and they did not dissapoint us! From a speedy checkin with very nices gals to a very nicely decorated room..very comfortable bed and everything we needed and to a great breakfast in the morning...we have made this a stopping point in our travels!

"Not a "plus""

sheflysx, Kissimmee 20/12/2021

I remember staying in Best Western when Plus meant a hotel with conference facilities. They were much better than the run-of-the-mill Best Western. But this is just that. My guess is that it is an old Holiday Inn, or something similar, built in the 1960's. It is an old motel, one story with exterior doors. The sink is in the bedroom and the shower and toilet in a room the size of a closet. Everyone has stayed in this kind of motel. But I for one prefer something a little nicer. One thing I was grateful for, however, was the step tool. There is no way I could ever climb into this bed, it is so tall. But I found a little step stool in the closet and that made it do-able.

"Pet Unfriendly"

Judith S, Clearwater, Florida 20/12/2021

BE AWARE- NO PETS - although TripAdvisor at the time we searched indicated that this location accepted pets when we arrived a sign was posted on the exterior of the entrance stating "No Pets" - as it was late and fortunately temperate weather we were able to have our small dog stay in the car in crate. In addition, the microwave in the room became overly heated when warming our takeout dinner. We were not only unable to eat a warm meal but unplugged the microwave due to a fire concern(the exterior cabinet was too hot to touch. This is one BW that we will not return to and you should re-think also.

"Great stopping point!"

focawife, Fort Pierce, Florida 29/11/2021

This Santee, SC Best Western Plus is a gem! Great value, clean, comfortable and conveniently located off of I-95. Breakfast is free, plentiful and beautifully presented. The rooms are clean, beds are great and the towels are fluffy! This is my go-to place when travelling the I-95 corridor.

"Best Western Plus Santee"

User 22/11/2021

Our favorite place to stay going to and coming back from our Florida vacation. The room is very cozy and comfortable, and the breakfast is very good with plenty of choices, and it's close to I-95. I'd recommend it to anyone, any time.


578reubenm, Baltimore, Maryland 19/11/2021

The room was clean, the beds were comfortable and everything-from A/C to shower to TV worked perfectly. The room was quiet. Reasonable places to eat within a short walk. Easy on and off the highway and the free breakfast was great


Terri B, Williamsburg, Virginia 08/11/2021

We would stay at this property again. We would leave from home early enough for my husband to play golf next door. Felt safe pulling in as late as we did and unloading in the dark. Staff helpful in telling us where to park uhaul.

"Always Consistently Nice"

User 03/11/2021

This property always takes care and concern for us, and our Basset Hound during our travels up and down the east coast. It's clean, friendly, a location we always look forward, and the BW continental breakfast never falls short ! And, love their beds !!

""In and Out" on Highway 95 to Florida"

NYCIrish1444, Winchester, Virginia 03/11/2021

The Best Western in Santee is one of the hotels that we like to visit in February when we are on I.95 headed south to Florida. This hotel has all of features that you want plus one. THIS HOTEL IS BUILT SO THAT EVERY ROOM IS ON THE FIRST FLOOR ! You can park your car right outside the door to your room. In the morning, you can have a nice breakfast or pick up something on the way. The breakfast room is a little small and sometimes gets crowded. We are not early risers. So, when we go to breakfast at 8:30 about half of the guests have already hit the rod. For dinner in the evening, I recommend the restaurant at "Clark's Inn" which is about a half mile down the road from the Best Western. Enjoy each day !!

"Nice Place"

IlieanaD, Union, New Jersey 03/11/2021

Stayed one night on the way back from Florida. Very clean room with nice linens and comfortable beds. Loved being able to park right outside our room. Breakfast had nice quality of food. Friendly staff. Would definitely recommend.

"Great Rest when traveling"

Akula51, Santee, South Carolina 02/11/2021

The hotel was super clean, relaxing and very inviting. Staff was superb! The food was very good at breakfast. The room was very clean and slept like a rock. The immediate area is clean, safe and secure. Definitely will stay here again!!!

"Very Nice"

mark3539, Knoxville, Tennessee 29/10/2021

I booked a pet friendly room. I booked a pet friendly room. It Smelled nice and was clean. There was a pet potty area across from my room with waste bags provided. I am taking off a star for two reasons. Reason one - the toilet. This was a major negative for me. Ladies, if you have any kind of knee problems, it will be torture getting up from the child height toilet! They should have payed a few dollars more for a higher toilet. Reason two - the pillows. Please, be kind to your neck and bring a pillow from home! These pillows are over stuffed and hard as a rock! There is no softness or give in the pillows at all. The breakfast buffet was full of food, something for everyone. There were hot foods and cold foods, yogurt, fruit, cereal,breads, eggs and meat. The light bulb was burned out by the chair in my room which made sitting and reading difficult. I would stay here again, no problem.

"Returned again!"

User 27/10/2021

Not trendy just Comfortable but it's not modern. Decent linens, comfortable. When I ask for a quiet room I got one. Property feels safe. If I were travelling alone I'd feel safe here. Golfing must be good because golfers are always here.

"Pleasantly surprised."

SharonRV22, West Palm Beach, Florida 27/10/2021

Just needed to stop for a night. Location was okay but the service and room was good. Efficient check in. Very nice breakfast was included. Did not use the outside pool but it was open and looked nice.

"Very Large Rooms"

ChampagnePrincess, Staten Island, NY 25/10/2021

We've been to this motel many times and have recommended it to friends and family. We love being able to park right outside the room. The rooms themselves are some of the biggest we've experienced. The beds are very comfortable and we like having the extra table which we use as a dining table if we decide to bring dinner in. The pool really sparkles and always looks inviting. The hot breakfast starts at 6:00 AM which is great if you want to get on the road early. Frig, micro and coffee maker are great extras. Enjoy.

"Excellent Place to Stay"

Gregory L, Venie, FL, United States 19/10/2021

First time at the Inn....but it will not be the last. Actually when I booked the room, I thought it was much closer to our final destination. But after the stay we were extremely happy with my choice. Great service....a lot of hotel amenities....and numerous local restaurants within walking distance. Extremely clean and quiet room.....even though the hotel was sold out for that night. Glad I booked well in advance..

"Clean hotel"

Gerry M, Yonkers, New York 07/10/2021

Rooms are clean, beds and pillows comfortable. Nice buffet breakfast. Lobby staff pleasant. Nice area, has several restaurants nearby to choose from. Located right off I95. Have stayed here several times .

"Nice stay at Best Western"

Jerry S, Winter Haven Fl 22/09/2021

Nice and convenient. Room was large, clean, bed was firm and comfortable. Staff very nice. Breakfast was plentiful and hot. Would consider staying here again. Only thing was that the room maybe could be painted.

"Great Value"

RebeccaR552, Orlando, Florida 17/09/2021

Clean rooms, friendly staff and a great value. I would recommend this hotel, the restaurant right next door is also good. Yes, this is a good find if your traveling I 95 and looking for a clean place to stay at a reasonable price.


terrifurn, Dunnellon, Florida 15/09/2021

room was clean and the area quiet. we felt safe. there is a breakfast buffet but we didn't get up in time for it as we were wiped from traveling. since this is "park in front of your room" we found that convenient for unloading for a one night's stay. our door did not close properly and i would think best western would be concerned with leakage from the ac or heat.

"Best Western Santee Inn retains it's Charm and Quaulity"

User 08/09/2021

I was skeptical when I heard that the Santee Inn had been purchased by a corporate hotel, but Best Western has retained all the features that make a night at the Santee Inn and Restaurant a lovely rest stop for Rt 95 travelers. Clean, well maintained, some renovated rooms and a new lobby were some of the features I appreciated.

"Clean room"

User 06/09/2021

Our only problem was that the air conditioner did not keep the room cool enough and had a musty order. We didn't report this until we checked out as we were very tried from our trip and just wanted to rest.

"Excellent Value, Clean, Comfortable & Convenient"

ShelleyF6423, Melbourne, Florida 02/09/2021

This is my second visit. For the price, you cannot beat this place. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the AC is not too noisy, great shower, comfy beds and I love parking right in front of my room. The access to 95 is excellent and there is a Starbucks two doors down. I will definitely be back.

"Needed a place that allowed pets"

User 01/09/2021

Was traveling down I-95to Florida for a wedding and needed a place to stay the night that allowed pets. This Best Western was right off I-95 and had plenty of restaurant near by along with other facilities like drug store, grocery store, etc. Pets were no problem and plenty of area to walk them. Check was easy as was check out.

"Clean but very old"

jsfisch, Avon, Connecticut 26/08/2021

We needed a spot to stop on our trip down south with our dog. The BW is right off 95 so we thought we'd try it. It was convenient to park right outside our room to unload our things and the room was clean but very old. The walls needed paint and the bathroom was dark and dingy. Surprisingly the bed was comfortable and outside noise was muted. That said, we will not be back and will have to find another hotel in the area to stop next time.

"Very clean Excellent place to stay"

User 16/08/2021

This Beat Western was very clean, great full breakfast, and super convenient. Very close to golf courses, good local restaurants, very convenient to I95, with easy access I would definitely stay there again

"Excellent value!"

User 08/08/2021

This hotel was right off I-95, and after a long drive, it is the perfect stop. The hotel was clean, properly accessorized; parking directly outside the door was a great luxury especially with a lot of luggage. The breakfast buffet had many hot and cold choices. We were definitely impressed. Great value and exceeded our expectations.

"Beyond our expectations!"

User 26/07/2021

The Inn was very clean and the staff was very pleasant. Excellent location. Comfortable beds. Easy drive up to the room. Breakfast had many offerings. Good coffee, too! We were pleasantly surprised at how nice the place was. I commend the manager and staff for working together to make everyone feel welcome.

"Nice stay"

Stephanie R, Bethlehem, Georgia 11/07/2021

The 2 ladies upon check-in were friendly and helpful. I stayed in the first guest room past the pool which was convenient. The room looked like it had recently been renovated as there was no nasty hotel carpet, but laminate floors. The only downside to this is that they didn't finish the renovation and the baseboards are completely dirty which one coat of paint would have fixed, after they finished painting the walls. There was a nice rocker recliner as well. The hotel was quiet and literally steps away from a restaurant.

"Clean, well-maintained older facility"

User 11/07/2021

This was one of the nicest budget hotels we've stayed at and had the best continental breakfast, by far! It's an older building, but it's clean and well-maintained. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again! My kids loved it too!

"Pleasantly Surprised"

Gregory M, Oxford, Ohio 10/07/2021

Needed a room for one night, traveling through from DC to the Tampa area. Found this one with decent reviews, good price, didn't know what to expect. The exterior/appearance is phenomenal. Very pretty grounds and very well kept. We saw staff sweeping up around the grounds all the time. The room was clean, although the edges of the room could probably have been swept a little better. There was a used bar of soap in the shower. Found that odd because it was practically next to the new bar. TV channels limited. Front desk personnel were very friendly and welcoming. Water pressure in the shower was good, bath towels a little thin. Found the bed a little more firm than what I'm used to but it was fine. Very good complimentary breakfast with a fantastic attendant. Eggs, sausage patties and links, apple/orange juice, diced fruit, fresh fruit, cereals, coffee. Would stay here again if ever in the area.

"Best Western Santee - Comfortable, Clean, Great Value"

Jennie M, West Chester, Pennsylvania, United States 28/06/2021

Recently stayed at this hotel. If you are looking for a clean, comfortable room, friendly, welcoming staff at an affordable price this is your place. "Included" breakfast is an extensive selection of hot and cold foods, including down home foods like waffles, pancakes, bacon but with lots of healthy options and stuff for kids. Every staff member is friendly and you can tell it's a great place to work. You can tell the team takes great pride in making their hotel one of the best for the money.

"Do not stay"

User 26/06/2021

This was one of the worst hotels we have ever stayed at. I slept in my clothes! The floors were dirty, the room smelled and the pool and area around the pool were dirty. We had reservations based on reviews that we had read but they must have been paid to write them. I asked for a refund but did not receive the courtesy of a reply.

Linda Springs, General Manager at Best Western Plus Santee Inn, responded to this review
On behalf of our entire team, I would like to apologize for not exceeding your expectations. Your satisfaction is important to us and we will be using the feedback you gave us to implement improvements to ensure we offer a better experience for guests in the future. I would love to talk to you regarding your stay here at our hotel. Im alittle concerned that you would stay somewhere that you had to sleep in your clothes. I would also like to know when you stayed here. Again i apologize your stay here was not up to your expectations, but our housekeeping staff work very hard and our rooms are cleaned daily. As you can see on the reviews we have. I look forward to your call. Please call the hotel directly I hope that you will consider staying with us again so that we can have another chance to provide you with a superior experience Thanks Kimberly Smith Front Desk Manager

"Good hotel"

dundeeb0y, Holland, Pennsylvania 24/06/2021

Close to 95 and very clean and comfortable hotel. Staff was nice at check in. Plenty of places nearby to eat with lots of choices. Toiletries were citrus and great scent from them. Steakhouse is part of the hotel adjacent

"Very Clean and Very Comfortable"

Linda R, BOYNTON BEACH 10/06/2021

During a recent trip north from Florida my husband and I stayed at this hotel. We were very happy with our choice. Our room was spacious and sparkling clean. The our king bed was very comfortable and the linens were of a nice quality. It is a one level property so we were able to park outside our room. A very complete hot and cold breakfast buffet is served with a staff member serving the choices to provide a good meal with minimum contact for safety due to Covid. This is definitely a well run hotel and an excellent choice for an over night stay.

"Great value"

amylois63, Charlotte, North Carolina 31/05/2021

Our room was great! Very friendly staff. The beds were comfortable and everything was clean. I love the the vanity is not in the actual bathroom. It is much more convenient that way. We went to Savannah for the day and decided to drive back up to this location because of the price and the reviews. We were not disappointed.

"Great halfway point between Maryland and Florida"

melissa0brien, Cape Coral, Florida 29/05/2021

Excellent property and very convenient off of Route 95 South. Beds were very comfortable, restaurants within walking distance, lovely pool area, and an added bonus, they had smoking rooms which were in a separate building from the non-smoking room. Highly recommend and will be staying here on our way back home to Maryland, and hoping to explore Lake Marion if we have time.

"nice stop"

R W, Inverness, Florida 24/05/2021

Comfortable room, reasonable price. A stand out was the staff person juggling the breakfast area: Even with the Covid situation apparently winding down, the breakfast area was not back to self-service, so one staff person was taking our breakfast orders. She was keeping track of 2 or 3 or 4 peoples' orders and details as one person's waffles were browning to perfection, for example. Coffee to order, or warm scrambled eggs on the plate... with a smile and a little bit of friendly banter. The breakfast dining area was nicely appointed and even had portraits of the original owners of the motel, on the wall. We were informed that those folks' children have continued with this property, even as it is now part of the "Best Western" chain.

"Always happy with our stay here"

go2ci, Westampton, New Jersey 19/05/2021

The staff is friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good. Travel with our pet and they are always accommodating. The rooms are be honest, a bit of updating would make the rooms even better, but overall, good for an overnight stay while traveling.

"Best value"

User 17/05/2021

Pleasantly surprised how such an older motel was maintained. It was nice to park our car pulling a car trailer near our room. Great that we didn't have to go up and down an elevator. Room was immaculate as well as the buildings and grounds. Breakfast was excellent. Would definitely stay there again.

"Very clean and good value."

sportfisher2, Millsboro, Delaware 14/05/2021

Rooms are tastefully decorated and are very clean. Likewise for the lobby, dining area, etc. Breakfast with eggs and meat is good. Surrounding area is good and restaurants, etc. are adequate. Hotel is conveniently located just of of I95.. .

"Charm and COMFORT!"

awildflower, Melbourne, Florida 14/05/2021

Origonally stayed here with my sister 10 years ago en route from Florida to Pennsylvania. Tho we were weary from the last minute travels; the southern hospitality and charm of this hotel was noted and appreciated! ( and remembered! ) Fast forward to May 2021 and I am traveling to Myrtle Beach and looked forward to bedding down at this Best Western. And 10 years later this hotel did not disappoint! The rooms are CLEAN, smell FRESH and is a QUIET place to stay. The beds appear to be new and feel supportive. Everything is maintained and everyone is courteous and professional! WONDERFUL place to overnite!

"Great Pet-Friendly Stop on I-95"

Gary G, Sarasota, Florida 12/05/2021

Very clean, well-maintained, PET-FRIENDLY hotel on I-95. Quick & easy check-in/check-out. Room was spotlessly clean and had obviously been well-sanitized. Liked that the pet-friendly room was not carpeted. Very comfortable bed, and nice leather recliner in the room. Great place to stop overnight on I-95 (with or without a pet), about halfway between Florida & the Northeast. Very good pricing/value as well.

"Overnight stay"

User 10/05/2021

Excellent price for a quality clean room Clean and well maintained property. Staff was very professional. Would like to see wood flooring as opposed to carpet, Breakfast bar was a plus in the morning. Hostess was very friendly .

"Clean and affordable"

jacqif, Orland, Maine 10/05/2021

We made a snap decision to stop on our travels and were very pleased. The staff were very pleasant the rooms were very clean the lot was also clean and pleasant and maintained landscape surrounding it. We were impressed enough to make sure our next stop on our journey had a Best Western Plus and stayed there as well and were just as impressed.

"Great place to stay"

loum619, Herndon, Virginia 05/05/2021

We stayed here with our dog. The rooms were clean and the hotel was clean. The room had a great TV, Internet, fridge with small freezer and microwave. The shower worked very well. There was plenty of parking and separate rooms for those with dogs. There was also a lovely pool that looked super clean that others used but we didn't have time to use. We did eat at the included breakfast and the selection was very nice. They handled this very well with one person handing out the orders and guests staying on the other side of a table. The grounds around the hotel are beautiful. The hotel was a good value for the cost. There are plenty of fast food places to grab a bit for dinner within a few blocks.

"Most comfortable BW bed I've ever slept on. Wonderful people! Just stay away from the breakfast server!"

jamessT8720TG, Mission, Texas 01/05/2021

The beds are more than perfect. The people operating it are too. Just stay away from the breakfast server as the one serving the morning I was there had the worst attitude I've come across in ANY hotel stay anywhere!

"Best Western Plus Cockroach"

roget904, Englewood, Florida 20/04/2021

Came face to face with a cockroach in the bathroom in the middle of the night. Front desk person blew it off saying, "well you open your front door from time to time and summer is coming ." So matter of fact she was. Not satisfied with her response.

"Best Best Western"

GeorgeandTerry, Venice, Florida 13/04/2021

This Best Western Plus is definitely a PLUS. It's the Rosebud Motel on steriods. Great location; terrific staff; comfortable bed; great price; a Starbucks within walking distance. Who could ask for more. We travel back and forth from Florida to New Jersey at least four times a year and always stay at the Best Western Plus in Santee, South Carolina.

"Not worth the price"

molew7, Sparta, New Jersey 02/04/2021

We just needed a quick overnight stop and chose this because it looked okay and was mid range price wise, but it looked more like a $49 room not $100+. Not real clean, sticky remote, mattress was not sealed and when I checked it was stained. Breakfast server was great though.

"Best of the Best Westerns"

Eileen M, Wilmington, United States 02/04/2021

The Santee Inn was the highlight of our trip to Florida and back. It was clean, with friendly staff and a great breakfast. Plenty of towels, soft linens, and a nice outdoor pool. Out of the three hotels we stayed in, this was the best of our trip.

"Wonderful overnight stay"

lynneVB1973, Virginia Beach, Virginia 02/04/2021

In spite of COVID restrictions, our stay in this classic style motel was exactly what we needed for meals and a good night's sleep. It was great to park in front of your room, and a benefit to be able to walk to a fantastic restaurant.

"2night stay"

User 29/03/2021

Last minute booking. Price was reasonable. Check in was fast and room was ready upon arriva. Clean room-basic but for the value it was suitable. Stayed in this area instead of Manning because of hotel quality. Drive to Manning was about 25 minutes on I95. Only problem is food choices by hotel was limited

"Oasis in the night!"

fincher405, Salisbury, Maryland 10/03/2021

I was extremely pleased with my stay.. clean rooms, easy check in/ check out, really friendly staff and all the amenities I could need!! I will make this hotel my go to as I make this cross country trip every 2 months!!!

"Not too bad"

louie708, Brooklyn, New York 08/03/2021

Stayed in room 204, this was a pet friendly room so there was no carpet on the floor which took away from the comfort of the room. The room was clean, smelled clean. The bedsheets smelled like clorox which was a bit overwhelming. We stayed one night and it was pleasant i would stay here again for a night or 2 the most nothing more than that. Parking is right outside your room which is great. The front desk gentleman who was there when we checked in was rude, he made no eye contact didnt welcome me or say hello it was like i didnt exist, very unpleasant and not sure of the laws but he didnt have a mask and was coughing. The breakfast lady was nice and accommodating. Overall not a bad stay for a stop on to Florida, especially when alot of other hotels in the area seemed crappy, this being a pet hotel definetly was a plus.

"Fully satisified with each stay"

drldh, Dillon, South Carolina 07/03/2021

I am periodically staying at the Santee BW plus Inn for work nearby, and am always fully satisfied with each stay - very consistent quality and much better value for the price than the several comparable competitors in the area. And more breakfast options than the recent brab bags during the worst of the pandemic are back now as well.

"One story, park right in front of your door!"

User 04/03/2021

Property is spread out with rooms located only on ground level, so parking is available right in front of your room. This is especially convenient for handicapped people. Our accessible room was clean, no odor nor heavily deordorized to cover up something. AC worked just fine and no issue with our door locking as another guest stated. Bed was comfortable. We did notice the front desk staff not wearing masks, but they were seated behind a platic shield. The breakfast is served by a staff member who wears a mask and gloves. We were pleased with this hotel and would stay again.

"Better choices for area"

NJgirl63, East Brunswick, New Jersey 02/03/2021

Check in and out were quick. Pulling up to our room was convenient as we had our bikes with us. We also appreciated the small fridge in our room and there was a microwave as well that I am sure could come in handy for someone. That is where the positives end. Signs on the doors of the lobby state no entry without mask or face-covering. Only one or two people at breakfast wore one into the lobby everyone else coming and going both at check in the night before checkout the next morning did not wear or have masks with them. The people working in the lobby and front desk also did not wear masks. This was not impressive. We skipped bfast and went to mcds drivethru. Our door to our room was broken and although the lock seemed to work the door did not close all of the way and let in cold air and road noise. The gap was quite large and could allow mosquitoes and rodents in as well. Our room was heavily deodorized to cover something else up. Not sure what but the stink seemed to get worse as the night went on. And the ac/heater was defective and made a loud whooshing sound. Take earplugs. Even with mine it was quite distracting. Will stay in another hotel the next time.

"Great stay in Santee."

sammylee, Bernville, Pennsylvania 28/02/2021

This Inn offers a clean, comfortable room. Staff is friendly and breakfast is now being served. There was a comfortable bed, lounge chair and desk. They have their own restaurant and several more are near by. Easy on and off I-95.

"Wonderful Place To Stay"

Steve C, Annapolis, Maryland 17/02/2021

My wife and I were traveling from Maryland to Florida and stopped at this hotel. It was a wise decision indeed. It is located just off I-95, so it's very convenient. But it's also far enough away from the highway so it isn't noisy. The hotel is really attractive with a heated pool, hammocks, and attractive landscaping. They practice the proper COVID protocols, so you feel safe, and the rooms are drive-up to the door, so you have virtually no contact with others. The rooms are really large and the décor is upscale. The beds were clean and comfortable. The bathroom was modern and quite nice. The TV was LG and they offered free premium channels like HBO. The free breakfast had all the usual fair, including waffles. And there were a wide range of nearby restaurants, including a Starbucks in the morning for coffee. You can't beat the price for what you get and we would definitely stay at this hotel again!

"Santee Favorite"

carolbT9115ZE, Orlando, Florida 16/02/2021

This place has been a constant stay over for us as we drive back and forth to Florida. They always have a place for us and it is very nice, clean and quiet. The man (Bill) is always friendly and efficient. The breakfast was limited because of COVID but made to order and very tasty.

"Very nice property"

Peter J, Pittsfield Ma, United States 16/01/2021

The property was very clean. All the normal amenities. The beds were super comfortable. The pillows were the most comfortable that I have slept on in along time. Due to Covid, breakfast was a grab and go. It consisted of a muffin, a breakfast bar, juice and an orange. This is the place to stay if you are in the area.

"Clean, convent, pet friendly"

dblack308, St. Petersburg, Florida 11/01/2021

Great value. The room was clean. convenient access, from the highway, and parking right by the door made it easy to unload the car and walk the dog. Decent options to eat, we really enjoyed the Thai restaurant across the street.

"Clean and friendly overnight stop along 95"

TravelMom_inPHL, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 09/01/2021

I have long been a frequent BW guest because I can always count on their standards for cleanliness. We made an advance reservation and arrived around 9pm, weary from a full day of driving South on 95. We were greeted by a friendly and efficient young lady. This is one of those road traveler hotels where you drive up to your door and every room is a first floor walk up - which we appreciated because we could feel secure leaving the majority of our stuff in the locked car overnight. The room was spacious for two adults and comfortable/clean, as expected; also seemed more updated than the website photos show. Check out was also speedy and friendly. My only constructive comment is about the grab-and-go breakfast. It was a piece of fruit, an individually wrapped muffin, and a hot breakfast sandwich which was tasteless and gummy. The hotel would be better off providing a $5 breakfast voucher to their nearby McDonald's which would be a partnership opportunity to cross-sell a local business and also give people a better meal option.


countrysunshyn, Ellicott City, Maryland 25/12/2020

Our pet room was not clean. Upon arrival and due to Covid, I wiped down bathroom counter upon arrival. Wiped up countless number of whisker hairs and ledge above sink was dirty. Rug did not appear to have been vacuumed as there were bits of scrap paper on the floor. The beds were decent though.

"Traveling alone with my pup! This is the place, welcoming & clean was able to relax and fall asleep immediately!"

Sharinjoy, North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina 21/12/2020

Did you ever have that travel nite yiu just couldn't fall asleep? No here, right off the highway impromptu stop was clean and quite! Even my pup curled right up. We were well rested and on the way out the office handed me a bag breakfast! Thanks for the cheerful can do spirit!

"One night with pets"

drduck2016, Thonotosassa, Florida 15/12/2020

Very rude welcome and directives fron desk clerk. She needs some manners training!! You don't wave your hand telling guests where there room is located! Bed was great. Cleanliness super. Bagged breee as fast was nice

"Great Place to stay"

happycatt, Phila 25/11/2020

Whenever we go South or return home we stay at this location. It is clean and comfortable, The staff is very nice and helpful. Pre Covid the breakfast was always good. They are doing a great job with the packaged breakfast they are giving to go.

"Comfortable and clean room"

ShelleyF6423, Melbourne, Florida 05/11/2020

I was pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness and comfort of the room. Easy accessibility off I-95 and pet friendly. I like the motor lodge style where I can park right outside my room. Room was clean, spacious and comfortable. Highly recommend.

"Best Western stop over"

bryceeva, St. Petersburg, Florida 03/11/2020

The on line registration process was amazing and the hotel was clean, comfortable and fully abiding by Covid safety precautions. Was surprised to see that the pool was truly heated and wished we had packed swimsuits to enjoy it after our long drive between Virginia and Florida. Would definitely stay here again.

"2 Best Western stops from Upstate NY to Florida."

User 29/10/2020

Conveniently located and fairly priced for a 3 star chain. The rooms were clean and comfortable and we always stay at a Best Western, A good value. We always find Best Western Hotels clean, conveniently located along our route from Central NY to Florida

"Convenient location off I-95"

Audrey8882013, Orlando 22/10/2020

As other reviewers noted, this Best Western Plus is conveniently located off I-95, seems to be in a fairly safe area (compared to other areas along I-95), and is my stopover point for frequent trips between Florida and Virginia. However, I think the entire Best Western service has gone down hill since the so-called lockdown of COVID-19. The lockdown has become a convenient excuse to cut costs of any amenities and I am really tired of the brown bag "Grab & Go Breakfast." This BW Plus cannot even bother to provide decent coffee/tea or properly maintained rooms (sloppy caulking in the bathrooms, dirty Air Conditioner filters, dirt (paint?) spattered refrigerator doors). I still don't know why this Best Western has a Plus.


165margaretn, Stuart, Florida 13/10/2020

I noticed most of the hotels at the Santee exit were more expensive than usual. This hotel while satisfactory does not meet the standards I have come to expect from a Best Western Plus. It reminds me of my elderly great aunt who had lovely vintage furnishings but didn't see the dust and dirt in the room. The air conditioner had a horrible smell air freshener couldn't disguise. The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. I was glad I could use use my gift card to help bring down the price, but it just doesn't provide the value for price asked.

"Fungus and mold in bathroom"

Richard D, Red Bank, New Jersey, United States 05/10/2020

Covid 19 pecautions were non-existant. No indication that any extra steps were taken toward assuring cleanliness and Covid free. The bathroom and sink area requires updating. The furniture was in average condition and the mattress and pillows are close to the time for replacement. The facility is listed as Best Western Plus and we have stayed at other Best Western and this facility was not a Plus.

"Great Stay"

supremepainting, Fredericksburg, Virginia 19/07/2020

no problems at all,we had a very easy and friendly check in, a very comfortable stay.. over all we had a great experience.. we travel from Virginia to Florida three to four times a year for vacations and we will definitely be staying here again

"Great Covid 19 stay w/ outside room entry."

User 12/07/2020

Enroute from FL to New England Seniors concerned about risk and safety travelling during Covid 19 Pandemic. We went out of our way to choose this BW location because of outside access to rooms. I am so glad we did. Reception area has plexiglass shield adding to safety for employee and customer. Beds were great! Mind you though they are very high so if you are really short you'll have a bit of trouble getting in and out. Not all rooms were occupied so it was very quiet and we got a great night's sleep. Refrigerator and A/C worked well and not loud. As a light sleeper I appreciate that. I would go out of my way to stay here again. Instead of usual breakfast they offered continental breakfast to go which was fine.

"Weekend getaway"

charyancey80, Dublin, Virginia 06/07/2020

Had an enjoyable stay. Great place when traveling with a dog. Friendly staff and very clean room. Would definitely stay here again when traveling to Santee SC. The pool was very nice and great and it was nice to be able to walk right into the ground level room without having to deal with an elevator. Thanks Best Western Plus.

"Quiet, clean hotel close to I-95"

User 06/07/2020

Our family stayed at this hotel as a halfway point between Pennsylvania and Florida. Since we have stayed at this hotel in the past, it was no surprise to have excellent accommodations. The rooms are large, clean and quiet. The hotel has exterior corridors, and allows guests to park directly in front of their hotel room. The pool was large and clean; my daughter especially enjoyed this part of our stay! Breakfast was a “grab and go” paper bag filled with water, juice, muffin or danish, fruit and granola bar. Great experience, would definitely stay here again!

"Great Hotel for the Price and Location"

Robert C, Hilton Head, United States 04/07/2020

Convenient to golf course, local restaurants (next door), and all other Santee amenities. Good price for a clean quality room. Friendly staff. Parking adjacent to room (first floor level). Ice and other vending located within 100 feet. Very convenient. Nice pool area with social distancing.

"Refuge for Weary Travelers"

User 03/07/2020

We ended up here thanks to long delays with a tow truck after a bad pothole, and after a one night stay at another hotel in the next town over, this place was worth every penny. We were able to play in the pool with our 2.5 year old. Our small dog was allowed to stay. The room smelt fresh and clean, and there are to-go bags for breakfast in lieu of a traditional continental breakfast given the COVID 19 situation. Thank you thank you thank you, Best Western. If we're ever in the area again we will stay here hands down!

"Best Hotel I've stayed at in a long tims"

Chershey86, Lebanon, Pennsylvania 25/05/2020

Stayed the night on 05/24.. Highly recommend this as a stop to stay. The nightshift front desk clerk was such a gentleman. Was a sweet older man! The room was clean didn't smell musky like most hotels I've stayed at. Check out was smooth with no hassle.. love that you can just drive up to the door..

"Very enjoyable stay"

User 25/05/2020

My family has to travel for a unpleasant reason. But we were very happy with the customer service we received from the staff. They help with giving directions to get extra bath towels and wash cloths.

"Just okay"

User 13/05/2020

Hotel room is outdated. My room was connected to another room by a door and you could hear everything through the open slit of that door. There are many better hotels out there for the same price and less.

"Great and Relaxing Stay"

robertsA8321FQ, Chesapeake, United States 10/04/2020

What a fantastic and relaxing place! A small town with the small town atmosphere and great place to go for that "just get away" experience. The facility is single story which allows spacious parking in front of your room for easy access to/from vehicle. Although COVID 19 has had an impact on choice of sit down food all the "fast food" places were operating with drive through ad or take out. There is a grocery story a couple of hundred yards away. I will be back for another stay on my Harley.

"Great stop over!"

janbee89, Panama City Beach, Florida 03/04/2020

Second time I have stopped there. Quiet, clean rooms at a reasonable price. Many rooms are updated. Breakfast buffet is very nice and coffee is excellent. There is bakery/ ice cream store 2 blocks away with cake by the slice. Homemade and fabulous!

"Needs updating"

User 18/03/2020

Bathroom needs updating. Toilet too low. Needs caulking at base of toilet. Rust where shower rod attaches to wall. Tub should be replaced with shower stall. Staff at front desk was very good. Answered all questions without me having to ask them. Hot Breakfast was provided and many choices were offered.

"Just OK"

MiNena77, Miami, Florida 15/03/2020

The only two things that were good about this room was the comfortable mattress & the refrigerator. Thankfully it was just one night. The bed was comfortable, the pillows were hard as a rock, thankfully we had our own pillows to use otherwise I would not have been able to sleep. The room is dated & smelled musty .. as did the A/C unit running. The tissues smelled like smoke & the shower didn't have much pressure. Will likely not stay again if ever traveling the I95 corridor again. Oh - and housekeeping knocked at 9am even though checkout is at 11. UGH .. annoying.


89kathy, Boston, Massachusetts 09/03/2020

On our way to Florida, I prefer plus BW, it's right next door to Smiths Exxon which sells all sorts of goodies, the room is large, plenty of seating, fridge,microwave,coffee maker, bathroom tiny, very clean, had our emotional support dog with us, area to walk dog, near many restaurants and shops, quiet, we were in back, it had an adjoining restaurant, we didn't eat their , found a Cracker Barrel , right down street, breakfast is served near Lobby, many choices and very good.

"Convenient, clean and comfortable"

John L, White Marsh, Maryland 07/03/2020

This Best Western is not the most elegant hotel, but we found it to be convenient, clean and comfortable. This is not a multi-floored hotel. We parked right outside our door so that loading and unloading was quick and easy. The free breakfast was what you commonly find at any hotel. However, the attendant was friendly and kept the breakfast area clean and stocked. We stayed here twice within a week and a half (on our way south and again or our return trip).

"Great place"

User 06/03/2020

Great place to stay! The checkin was quick and easy. The staff was great! Our room was clean and the breakfast was very good. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a clean, nice and friendly place to stay.

"First and last stay in Santee"

jmonson, Lancaster, Pennsylvania 05/03/2020

We decided to stop in Santee this year on our drive down to FL. We stayed at the Best Western Plus. The best thing about this place is the restaurant next door. Everything is rather average. Unless you golf or fish not really much to see. We gave it a try.

"Good nights rest"

Lin K, Mineral 05/03/2020

Best Western Plus Santee was clean and very comfortable. Beds and pillows provided comfort. We always stay here on return from Florida. They usually provide an awesome breakfast. Due to a problem in their dining area, they gave us a coupon for free breakfast at the Cracker Barrel located nearby.

"Our Favorite Stop!"

Marlin M, Lebanon, Pennsylvania 04/03/2020

You can not beat the value! Always clean and comfortable. Fabulous breakfast, but get there early to get a seat because it's always so busy. We always stop here on our way to southern Florida. It's about halfway. They work hard to keep the food, coffee and juice stocked when the place is bursting @ the seams with guests having breakfast!

"Nice Stop on Way to Florida"

thomasrL5245RS, Easton, United States 03/03/2020

This is a very well maintained and well run hotel that does not disappoint. We especially love the very warm heated pool! Nice restaurant attached. There is room if you are towing a bass boat like we were. We will stay here again!

Linda S, Manager at Best Western Plus Santee Inn, responded to this review
We appreciate the kind words but not sure why you rated it as a one? which is the worst for us. If you didn't mean to please try and fix it so our ratings cant go down. Thank you for staying with us Thanks Kimberly Smith

"All I can say is Fantastic !!"

Pammy386, Palm Coast, Florida 26/02/2020

We were traveling norrth on I -95 for a trip to VA. We called about two days before our trip and were lucky enough to find this Gem of a Hotel. The reservation was simple to make when we contacted the hotel. The room was very clean and smelled like freshly laundered sheets. There was cold weather and rain and we were so lucky to have chosen this oasis off the highway which had a been designed as a 1 story lodge where you drive up to the door. We went to dinner at the restaurant next door which was ok but a bit pricey. The hotel served the most lovely display and breakfast assortment I've ever seen at a free breakfast. Yes they had the usual stuff but they had a delightful yogurt machine with fixings, fresh grits, sausage and bacon offered as well. Clean inside and out surrounded by a small golf course and well lit parking. Just a Delight !!

"An Excellent stay!"

vketcher, Memphis, Tennessee 18/02/2020

Had to find a place last minute due to a death, this hotel was recommended to me. Everything was great! Room was clean, smoke free, beds were clean and comfortable! Area lit good at night, staff was nice. Breakfast was good, overall no issues at all. I would recommend this place as well!

"Overnight stay"

PennyinShallotte, Liberty, North Carolina 11/02/2020

Older hotel, very clean and well kept up. Nice for the price. One floor, parking in front of doors. Friendly staff, good breakfast, eggs, sausage, biscuits fruit, juice and coffee. Close to lots of choices to eat. Short walk to Sea Captains House to eat. Very good food. Several hotels at this exit and close to golf and lake.

"pet friendly"

User 08/02/2020

I enjoyed the Very clean and updated property. Pet Friendly property made it easy and comfortable to relax and enjoy the stay. Also close to dinning places made it easy for dinner. Internet worked great

"Very Comfortable"

Janel D, Ephrata, Pennsylvania 06/02/2020

All one level, outside entrances - not what we are used to but worked out nicely. Clean room, great beds and pillows. Shower very good. Bathroom small but like having the sink separate from the tub. We read about continental breakfast but it was as complete as we have ever encountered - eggs, sausage, grits, waffles, oatmeal, yogurt, breads, etc. I still prefer a more updated facility but for one night this was fine and the price was reasonable.

"Always the Best"

User 06/02/2020

I've stayed at several hotels. Best Western has always been the one who gives most for your money. The breakfast has always been great and that way I do not have to go out to get it. The pools have been kept clean.

"A 95 Jewel"

149Lloyd149, Montreal, Canada 25/01/2020

A 95 jewel.Very comfortable motel just off the 95. Clean rooms, great breakfast. Friendly staff. Beds were very comfortable. Staff did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a stop over.

"Great location."

Linda C, Rehoboth Beach 24/01/2020

Right off of I 95. Nice clean rooms, service at desk was great. Breakfast food very fresh and room was parking lot and close to several restaurants. Internet was fast and stayed working. Will definitely stay there again.


User 20/01/2020

Received a phone calll after my stay stating that I left something in the room when I left and they offered to hold for me on my return. I don't know what else to say except that I enjoyed my stay and will stay there again.

"Best place to stay on the way to Florida"

Annette E, Glen Mills 18/01/2020

We stay here every year on our way to Florida. The BW is so warm and inviting. The rooms are so WELL LIT and bright and clean. The staff is helpful and cheerful. The sheets are lovely, soft . i will say the towels could be a little softer but still not bad.

"Convenient and comfortable"

jmag160, New York City, New York 17/01/2020

Although a bit pricey for the location (up about 20% from last year same time), still maintains a comfortable and safe place to stay. Amenities improved altho' tea could be added to room. Clean and very convenient for the traveler with all type of traveling needs available, i.e. gas, fast food, fine dining, etc.

"Very pleased with sales and service."

F7676ATpatriciac, Saratoga, United States 13/01/2020

Rooms were very clean and beds were comfortable. I could even figure out the tv remote on first try. Didn't realize that the restaurant opened at 5 or we would have eaten there instead of cracker barrel.

"Last minute reservatuin"

User 06/01/2020

We are always satisfied with Best Western and this establishment did not disappoint . Thank you for a comfortable stay and a good breakfast to get us back on the road . Easy on of 95 was a major plus for selecting this hotel .

"Adequate but overpriced "

Erik_Virginia, McLean, Virginia 04/01/2020

As other reviewers have noted that rooms are neat and clean with a fine tv plus WiFi. The bathroom was fine though very basic and tiny. Breakfast was very basic as well with limited choice in a small area. So, it's an ok place to stay for a pit stop, but that is setting the bar too low to the price. We chose a different place going back the other way on I 95.

"Great place"

User 04/01/2020

Rooms were clean & comfortable. Great restaurant right next door. Very happy for the price as a stop over night stay. Just fine for a family with kids. You can park right outside your door, too, so you don't have to drag all of your things in for just one night. Would definitely stay again!

"Nice Place"

deputychief2019, Orlando, Florida 04/01/2020

Nice place, bathroom can use a update. Beds were very comfortable, Breakfast outstanding, but small area especially when full. Arriving Staff and Breakfast Staff was friendly and caring. Pool was an added pleasure and the area has lots of Restaurants

"Heated Pool"

Kathy P, Kernersville, North Carolina 03/01/2020

We were on our way home & decided to stop instead. We stay at The Best Western Hotels often. This one was very clean. The heated pool was a wonderful surprise & it was hard to get out! :) Unfortunately, the workers smoked by the pool (my spouse is allergic to cigarette smoke) & they left cigarette butts by the tables. The breakfast bar was well stocked, however it was very cramped & difficult to maneuver around. We will come back for the heated pool!

"Clean Room"

User 02/01/2020

I stayed in a room with one King Bed, it was very clean, staff friendly. Continental Breakfast was great, many items on the breakfast bar to chose from. Although I didn't use it, the heated pool looked very nice. I would definitely stay at this location again in the future.


Ron C, Daytona Beach S 01/01/2020

Need better staffing In restaurant Need more experienced maint' person Better lighting out front. Much better selection and quality of food at breakfast. Both ladies at front desk were perfect. Since becoming a plus this Best Western has shocked be on It's downward turn It use to be my favorite.

"This is a $70/night motel charging $115/night"

Gila S, Valencia, Spain 31/12/2019

If they had charged $70, it would have been good value. At $115 a night, it was terrible: 1. When you turn off the light at night, all the outlets go dead, so your phone is not charging. Not to mention my laptop or hearing aid. 2. The room was tiny, old, and dilapidated. 3. The pillows were lumpy. 4. Breakfast was chaotic - though this was less important to me. The reason they get to charge so much, I am guessing, is because they have a heated pool outdoors. But if you don't care about this, the rest of the motel was definitely not worth it.

Linda S, Front Office Manager at Best Western Plus Santee Inn, responded to this review
I do hate to see your stay here was disappointing, but if you had left the switch on and just cut the lamp itself off the plugs would have still worked. Our property is an older property but its well maintained and up to standards. The Pillows are pillows that Best Western assign for us Im sorry you didn't like them. And our breakfast is always busy but we do the best we can to make every guest happy and even though you left disappointed I hope you have a happy new year and had a safe trip back home Thanks Kimberly Smith Front Desk Manager

"Not what I expected "

CarolG828, Chincoteague Island, Virginia 30/12/2019

I saw rave reviews about this hotel. It was really pretty, nicely decorated for the Holidays. Check in went smoothly. The room was clean. That's all the good I can say. Everyone has a different opinion on beds of course, I thought it was uncomfortable. The pillows were all too firm. Okay, now for breakfast. I should've tried the oatmeal. The eggs were cold, the biscuits were dry. The sausage was okay but the coffee was awful. Sullen breakfast hostess didn't do anything to improve the experience. Sorry Best Western, but it's not your best.

"Excellent hotel and great value"

Topsailman, St. John's, Canada 17/12/2019

We were enroute from DC to Largo, FL and this hotel in half way. The price was excellent at just under $100 taxes in and the room was clean, nicely furnished and very comfortable. It had excellent internet. There is a very good seafood restaurant next door offering good selections at good prices. We've stayed here several times and plan to in the future. I'm very comfortable recommending this hotel

"Our Trip To SC"

"Nice Ending to a Long Day on the Road"

cherylwithaC, Gloucester, Massachusetts 08/12/2019

We are snowbirds for the past 8 years and have tried various motels/hotels on our 3 night journey to Florida. For the price range this has been one of our best choices so will book again on our way back north. Having a decent restaurant within walking distance is also a plus for us. Very pleased with staff, room and breakfast.

"Nice hotel"

arleenlewis1065, Tampa, Florida 30/11/2019

Very nice hotel and nice price . Easy access from the interstate . Very clean and staff was wonderful . Rooms were clean and comfortable . Breakfast had a nice variety from a quick breakfast or a sit down meal

"Great place!"

USAmultitrip, Center Valley, Pennsylvania 26/11/2019

The best price/quality choice among the higher level motel type hotel. Had been a Hampton Inn customer until their usually $100 or less charge per night became $150; so I tried Best Western and found it to be at least as good for two-thirds the price.

"Overnight stay"

Patricia D, Cheverly, Maryland 24/11/2019

Nice, quiet motel. Nice decor, comfortable rooms. Breakfast has been better during previous stays. Only hot food was prepackaged and had to be heated or prepared by guest. Good restaurant next door for dinner.

"Reservation nightmare!!!"

roclhi, Eustis, Florida 22/11/2019

We booked another hotel in Santee South Carolina when we went to check in after driving 12 hours the receptionist informed us that we couldn't pay cash until the morning and I called and asked if I could before I booked the room so we went to the best western down the street and they had rooms and it was no problem checking in and everything was great we had breakfast in the morning and continued our trip to Florida and I signed up for the rewards program and we'll be staying at best western from now on thanks

Linda S, General Manager at Best Western Plus Santee Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for the kind words about our Hotel here at the Best Western but you rated us a 1 which is the worst. I assume you were giving a 1 to the other hotel but its going against us. If there is anyway you can get this fixed that would be great. Glad you enjoyed our hotel Thank Kimberly Smith Front Desk Manager

"Nice little find...."

User 18/11/2019

Beds were comfortable and the breakfast was excellent - hot items as well as muffins and bagels. I didn't use the restaurant, but I will next time. My neighbors in the morning were a little loud but the hotel couldn't help that. All in all - I will stay here again and maybe use a few more of their amenities.


Brenda G, Greensboro, North Carolina 17/11/2019

Beautiful, well maintained and exceptionally clean facility! All single level with several buildings. We were in 2nd building. Other than frequent emergency vehicles, itt was quiet. Right off I-95. Friendly staff. Room was very clean! Microwave and large fridge! Bed was very comfy. Nice towels! Room had a table but no chairs suitable for using the table. No desk area. Breakfast area was right off the lobby. It was cold and raining so we had to drive to the front. Parking up front was a problem. Very large selection of food items. First place I've ever stayed at they had grits already prepared. However, hot food items were NOT hot. There was a microwave available, however for food safety, it must be maintained at a certain temperature. The sausage gravy was not even warm. Other than the food safety issues, the food was good. I would definitely stay at this location again.

"Always a great place to stay"

Jack S, Canada 17/11/2019

This is our go to place to stay en route to Florida. The rooms, furniture, TV, pool, etc. are always in great shape and the experience is quiet and comfortable. Highly recommended. The Captains Quarters on site means you don't have to get back in the car to go and eat. It also serves excellent food and wine.

"Clean, comfortable and convenient"

herstoryprof, Schaefferstown 16/11/2019

This is our preferred place to stop when driving from Pa to Florida . Easy on and off 95. Parking right outside door of room. Rooms and entire facility clean and comfortable. Good restaurant next door so no need to get back in car and drive to dinner. Free breakfast is good...usual offerings but enoupgh variety to satisfy .

"Old style comfort"

User 12/11/2019

Very well run property close to interstate with good beds, clean rooms and generous breakfast. Great value also. Old fashioned building with exterior entrances but felt safe. We were able to bring our dog for a small fee and there is a good area to walk in.

"Doors on outside"

User 09/11/2019

I wish I had checked on this before we went. The doors were on the outside and cars were parked right up to the doors. Which meant at 5am when the loud truck was leaving it woke us all up. The parking spots are tiny!!! No joke! Room was clean, front desk staff were friendly and the entrance was decorated nicely.

"Excellent hotel"

User 06/11/2019

"Great place to stop ."

jlselt, West Chester, Pennsylvania 06/11/2019

Just stoped here on the way to Florida. It's motel style, you park right in front of your room which is ground level. Rooms are very large, clean and there is no road noise. Beds are very comfortable. There are a variety of places to eat dinner within one mile or less. There is a hot breakfast included. Great value. I'll will stop there again.

User 26/10/2019

"Always a Great Stay!"

GramsyFL, FL and NY 24/10/2019

I stay here several times a year on my trips back and forth to NY. It is always a reliable, restful, rewarding respite on what can be a long drive. Staff are pleasant and professional, rooms are always very clean and comfortable, and one of the best free breakfasts. Plus it's easy on, easy off from 95.

"Very Pleasant Surprise"

UncleSamNU1972, Ocala, Florida 22/10/2019

Stayed on our way home to Florida. This place is great! Great service, very clean, nice quiet room, close to I-95. Fast efficient, check-in. Breakfast was delicious. Food was fresh and hot with good variety. Scrambled eggs, ham, sausage, sausage gravy, grits, waffles, sweet rolls, fruit, etc. The restaurant next door was superb and within easy walking distance. Pet friendly with a good area to walk dogs. Our stay was more like a vacation than a trip home. We will definitely stay here any time we are in the area. We had not stayed in a Best Western in years, but if this is how they are now we will definitely try more.

"Great value, very clean"

susanamc77, Boston 21/10/2019

We stayed one night, check in was easy and quick with friendly front desk staff. We like to drive up and park outside of room. Room was very clean, newer carpet. Beds a little too firm for my husband and myself, bed linens were modern and comfortable. Delicious breakfast included in stay. Good steak/seafood restaurant right next door. Would definitely stay again.

"Excellent experience and Excellent Meal"

Mimsymom, Swainsboro, Georgia 20/10/2019

The rooms were clean, the breakfast is one of the best we have experienced and we stay in motels quiet often. The resturant is absolutely a must! Everything was delicious, typically you don't find a meal that everything is perfect but ours was. We were a party of four, each ordering differently and everything was delicious. Enjoy the pleasant resturant staff as well.

"Great hotel with restaurant and golf course in the back."

Leenbob, Fort Myers, Florida 08/10/2019

This place is right off 95 exit 98. The hotel is very clean. Didn't get a chance to ride the golf course but it looks very nice. The restaurant is fabulous. I had lasagna that was the best. My husband had shrimp scampi that was delicious.

"Two years make a difference"

watercop, New Smyrna Beach, Florida 08/10/2019

Once again the high point was the restaurant in the parking lot. It is the main reason I booked here. However, there was a major problem with check in. First, where is the smile and greeting? Next, the key card would not work. The maintenance man came and used a key card that did work. When the door opened there were suitcases on the floor and personal items on the table. Obviously the room was occupied. We returned to the office. One of the ladies reached in and handed me keys to another room. We were already checked in it appeared!! There was no apology or any acknowledgement of the huge mistake. I will book here again, but I would recommend the staff get a bit of training.

Stopped in to this Best Western on our way home as we had stayed in one at Hilton Head. This was our 3rd hotel of our trip. The room was very outdated but very clean - carpet has to go. There was also an odd odor - not sure if due to we were in a pet-friendly room. Staff was friendly.

"Best Western Santee"

dscoots, Riverhead, New York 30/09/2019

My husband and I choose the Best Western Santee every year on our way to FL. The staff is always professional and the free buffet breakfast is wonderful as is the attendant who runs the breakfast room. The rooms are neat and clean with very comfortable beds and linens. This year, however, I did find the WiFi service to be spotty. Repeatedly had to sign in. I would recommend this facility if in the area

"Still sleepy after restless night"

wrslinger, Warrenton, Virginia 29/09/2019

Truck lights and motor noise kept us up until 1:00am, when I called front desk, they said, “oh we are sorry our maintainence man is having truck problems.” In the morning the manager, never getting up from her chair, said, sorry but that is where he parks and he was having car trouble...hope you have safe travels.

"Make sure you don't leave anything behind after checkout"

imcosmo, Richmond, Virginia 24/09/2019

While this property is clean and convenient to the interstate and restaurants, we've stayed here for the last time. 45 minutes after checking out, we realized we left a Fitbit in the room. Since we were 50 miles away, we decided to call and ask to have the item mailed to our next stop (A Best Western in Daytona Beach). We were told housekeeping did not find the item. We know exactly were the item was left and it could not have been missed during cleanup. Travelers beware of this property. It was our fault to leave an item behind but dishonesty is inexcusable.

Linda S, Front Office Manager at Best Western Plus Santee Inn, responded to this review
I do apologize your fitbit was not found but while writing this I hope you have found it because we do have very honest housekeepers whom have turned in thousands of items as expensive apple mac books to even more then a thousand dollars in cash money that guest have left behind. After you checked out the room has not been rented to another guest and I have personally went to check and it is not in there. Again I apology and I hope you have found your fitbit. Thanks Kimberly Smith Front Desk Manager

"On our way home from Orlando, we had stayed here before."

Jack C, Severn, Maryland 23/09/2019

On our way home from Orlando, we had stayed here before. The last time we were her they were doing some construction work outside and in several of the rooms. Love the new wall fixtures, freshly looking paint on the walls, the new flooring with great looking carpeting, which must be hard to keep clean as the hotel is a pet friendly hotel! This was our second or third time at this hotel, but this chain seems to be consistently very good in terms of hotel stay quality and standards. They know good customer care and it shows! They have clean, comfortable sized rooms, with beds that make sleep much easier that some chain hotels (some hotels must believe that the bigger and harder the bed, the better), their computer internet service worked fine and best of all, our SUV was able to be parked right outside our room. Making it so much easier to handle the luggage both coming and going. Breakfast had good options and staff was attentive. Will be happy to stay here again! It is one of 2 places we stay at when in this area.

"Great Breakfast, and a Pool for your Kids"

User 13/09/2019

Really nice pool area, and the entire grounds appeared clean and neat. Check-in smooth. Room had a very musty smell. Shower curtain rod falling down on both ends. Light (heat lamp?) in bathroom didn't work, but you could see up into the bowels of the ceiling. Very old and outdated. The light next to the bed had a push button switch that was missing the top ring that held it in the fixture, so when you try to turn it on or off, the entire (metal pushbutton) switch disappears into the metal fixture. Definitely was scared that my wife would be electrocuted, and that it would short out and cause a fire. There was a nice vinyl upholstered recliner chair, which was comfortable, and the room was a good size. All the pillows were super tiny on a king sized bed. While this seems to be the norm since we stayed at 3 Best Westerns this trip in three different states, and they all had the tiny pillow thing going, we'd rather have regular sized pillows. Breakfast was good… hot scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, coffee, biscuits and gravy, grits, assortment of dry cereal, and a woman keeping the area clean. Best part of the stay. Area has nothing much going on, but there's a cool country store very nearby and a few decent restaurants. A bonus is that this motel is literally right off the highway exit.

"Tropical Paradise"

JudithAnn308, Elverson 06/09/2019

In a world of modern high rise hotels, this classic hotel was a treat for the senses. Lush plantings, comfortable outdoor lounging (including large hammocks) makes for pleasant stay. Most welcoming staff. Love the new flooring as carpeting is just nasty considering it is a pet friendly hotel. Only negative- please paint the woodwork.

"Comfortable stay"

jeffdE8535AI, Toronto, Canada 05/09/2019

This was our first time at this hotel but the chain seems consistent in terms of quality and standards. Clean rooms, comfortable beds, internet worked fine and best of all the vehicle was parked right outside our room making it a breeze to handle luggage. Breakfast had good options and staff was attentive. Will be happy to stay here again.

"A nice stop convenient to I95"

rorothman, Casselberry, Florida 28/08/2019

A nice budget motel. Next to a great restaurant. The service is great and all the employees we encountered were very friendly. We especially love the complementary breakfast, which is always tasty and fresh.

"Is it Santee on our way back to Port St Lucie"

captaintom01, Port St Lucie, Fl, United States 27/08/2019

Visit to Santee South Carolina on our way back to Port St Lucie Florida. I love this hotel because it's close to a golf course if we decide to play and the restaurant next door is very good. We always eating this restaurant

"Excellent Hotel"

ShoreProud, Easton, Maryland 18/08/2019

We recently stayed at the Best Western Plus Santee, South Carolina. We found it to be an excellent hotel. It was clean, nice bed, nice shower with plenty of hot water and a friendly staff. It is a nice half way point for us driving to and from Easton, Maryland to southwest Florida. There are plenty of restaurants close by including Cracker Barrel. We will definitely stay here again on our trips up and down 95.

"Nice, quiet, clean and friendly "

User 07/08/2019

Stopped here while traveling from FL to Maryland. We were tired and needed a place to crash because we left later than planned so we stopped and luckily they had a last minute cancellation because every hotel/motel was booked for some event that weekend. This place was great. The staff was super friendly and the room was clean. I highly recommend this place if you need to stop while traveling or visiting the area. I would stay here again without hesitation.

"Great stopping place when travelling along 95"

Harry m, Boca Raton, Florida 07/08/2019

The hotel had a wonderful staff, served an excellent breakfast. the rooms have very clean in the 3 times I have stayed here. There is an excellent golf course next door and a wonderful restaurant adjacent to hotel where you can get a great seafood dinner.

"Stay here when traveling i95 always thee best place. Restaurant next to hotel best food. Nice breakfast great coffee."

Ronnie K, Central Florida, Florida 04/08/2019

"Good for an overnight stay.."

User 03/08/2019

We stopped here on the way to FL. The area seems a bit sketch. The motel was fine. Rooms were clean, showers hot and beds comfortable. The rooms could use a good update. They're dated and wearing down. Carpet pulling up, paint bubble/peeling. Free hot breakfast was just okay. You get what you pay for.

"Very noisy due to check-ins in middle of the night"

WxmanMD, Venice, Florida 22/07/2019

If you want a quiet sleep, go elsewheres...check-ins at 2 AM, 3 AM, etc...Also all the pillows in the room were huge, need a mixture of sizes. The breakfast buffet was not refilled in a timely manner and stuff ran out.

"Great Place to Stay"

carolj524, Elmont, New York 14/07/2019

My granddaughter Kaitlyn and I left NY at 5:00AM. We got to Santee Best Western Plus around 7PM. We were tired and hungry. Check in was fast. She(the receptionist) told us about the pool and about breakfast in the morning. She(the receptionist) also told us about the restaurant next door. A nice seafood place. We couldn't be happier. I loved our room. The bathroom was clean, the floor wasn't tacky. We did have dinner next door and it was good. We went back to the room and both of us were too exhausted to go in the pool. The beds were so comfortable hated to get up!! In the morning we showered and went for breakfast. Food was good and hot. Coffee was fresh. We left about 8AM and headed to Saint Petersburg Florida. I would stay at the Best Western Plus in Santee again and would recommend this hotel to everyone. Thank you Best Western Plus for having a real nice place.

We accidentally booked wrong hotel of the highway going to my sons wedding. They changed our hotel and were so helpful to me, my daughter and 2 grandsons. We were so tired the desk clerk was so helpful.

"Great Place to stay"

cb0wman1, Jacksonville, Florida 13/07/2019

We spnt 6 nights at the Best Western Santee. Every thing was great. Very quiet and friendly place at night and during the day. Nice restaurants nearby. Breakfast was great and had a varied menu. Beds were comfortable. Bathroom had a chair height toilet (that was important for me at 76 years of age).

"Great hotel!"

Judy V, Sterling, Virginia 12/07/2019

We stay here 6 times per year on our way to/from our Florida condo. They welcome our small dogs and have smoking rooms. The staff is very friendly. There are numerous eating options close by. Rooms are clean and comfortable.

"The worst hotel stay;"

User 07/07/2019

Reviews for this hotel was untrue. The insects lined the corner of the ceiling and walls, spiders. the carpet was nasty and rat or roach traps behind the dresser. Rings in the tub and House Keeping Service was bad, these people ask like they paid for the room and were mad because of we reported the insects and was given another room..If they had cleaned the rooms I'm sure that it would not have smell like sewer and the insect would not have been lining the walls. No one rested comfortable. Couldn't wait to leave.

This place is Excellent!! Nice employees - clean & quiet hotel with nice beds & Excellent Hot Breakfast!!. Plus, plus they are in the Hotel coupon book from the rest area but I would have paid full price too - Slept like a rock & was refreshed in the AM & ready to continue my long trip.

"Nice place to lay your head"

Jason C, Shady Spring, West Virginia 02/07/2019

We stayed here on our way to Disney. Kind of a half way point. Arrived and was checked in by 2 very friendly ladies. I had a reservation for 2 rooms, we got checked in quickly with no hassle. Arrived to a clean room, had dinner at the Captains Quarters beside really good seafood, then went swimming in their nice sized pool. They keep delicious cookies out in the lobby too. Breakfast the next day was really good too. Better than most. My only complaint is one of the breezeways between the rooms, seems to be the junkyard. Old A/C units and mattresses just laying out in the open. Really takes away from the nice appeal of the rest of the property.

"great stay with your dog(s)"

sylvie f, Woodbridge, Connecticut 01/07/2019

the hotel is very cute, very clean and has the best scenario if you are traveling with dogs. you go directly to your room from the ground floor, the rooms for dogs are in the back close to a great area with grass. The hotel is quiet and the staff is wonderful. this was a great find on our way from CT to FL!

"Nice little place in Santee"

Kirkyboytheoriginal, Fort Wayne, Indiana 01/07/2019

Always like staying here, they keep things clean and the breakfast is good with nice options. It is an older ground floor level motel, but don't let that fool you, it is up to date with all the options of a newer motel. The pool is nice size and secluded, has a laundry and small workout room. Easy access to 95 if needed, and plenty of good restaurants other than the usual fast food if you want something different. Friendly staff that will take care of you with the southern hospitality that is appreciated and refreshing versus other places in the world I have stayed.

"So convenient!"

Cindy P, Yorktown, Virginia 25/06/2019

On our long trip from Virginia to Florida and back, we are always glad to get here. The rooms are always very clean and check in and out is very easy. So glad to have such a convenient place to pull in to. We like that we can just pull right up to our room and get what we need out of the car. The free breakfast is nothing fancy but gets us going for the day. Love the grits!

"Motel with a home feeling"

User 23/06/2019

Whenever I travel in that direction, Best Western Santee is my stay choice for the night. Clean, comfortable, homey. Pleasant staff. Adding to that, the restaurant next door for dinner is fantastic and they make the best Margaritas.

"Why pay $50 more when other exits close by honor coupons."

User 21/06/2019

We stayed previously and our coupon was honored but only because a employee pointed out it should. This time we called when we were an hour away and told they employee who we were and we would be there soon. When we arrived our coupon was not honored. The employee even threatened to charge our credit card though we had not been given a confirmation number when we called. The previous employee was not there Only the employee who tried to charge us $50 more last time. I hate that Santee will no longer be a place we will stop. All travelers need to be aware that Manning has great hotels and restaurants Exit 119

Linda S, General Manager at Best Western Plus Santee Inn, responded to this review
The reason your coupon was not honor was that the coupon clearly states that the coupon is not valid with a reservation..The coupon is valid for walk in guest only.We honor the coupon when the rules of the coupon are follow.

750cynthialynns, Corning 07/06/2019

Easy to find, staff was wonderful and friendly. Pool was very nice and clean. Breakfast was wonderful and there were a lot of choices. Room was clean and beds comfortable. Shower/Tub and Toilet were a little dated but the sink was very nice. Would for sure stay again.


redmellen, Central Florida, Florida 04/06/2019

This was a great hotel. Clean, friendly. The beds were very comfortable. We had a dog with us & the pet friendly room was spotless. The restaurant on the grounds was fabulous too! Breakfast was complimentary.

"Cold Canadian"

Rukshan B, Sarasota, Florida 24/05/2019

This was an excellent hotel. Good location, as it was very close to the Main highway in Santee and could walk to other restaurants. Large spacious rooms but the washroom was very small and bathtubs could use a renovation.

"Always a great stay"

go2ci, Westampton, New Jersey 10/05/2019

We stay here frequently when we travel through the area. We notice they ar consistantly maintaining and taking care of the rooms. We commented on how great the mattress was...I mentioned it at the desk and they said yes, they have replaced the matresses recently. They were painting rooms at the other end of the wing we were on. Always a good stay. And the breakfast is nice.

"BW... better than expectations "

edwardmw2015, Longboat Key, Florida 29/04/2019

For some reason, I used to view anything best western as old, stiffly and probably not clean. I am pleased to say I was dead wrong about this hotel/motel. It is clean, very well maintained, and almost cute when you arrive at night and the place is well decorated with lites. The desk person was polite and the breakfast hardy. Well done for a little over $100.


User 28/04/2019

wonderful, I always stay at best western,where ever I travel to. I give this location two thumbs up, The location was great, and the pool was wonderfull after our long drive. There were several place to eat and shop in walking distance.

I recommend this Best Western for your stop along I-95 in South Carolina. It is clean, friendly and quiet. It's not new but kept up very well. The morning breakfast is very good and comes with the price of the room. Just slightly over $100 is a bargain for all the conveniences that the hotel gives. I will be stopping here again.

Michelita2015, Manassas, Virginia 20/04/2019

Excellent hotel and excellent restaurant right next door, Captain's Quarters! The free breakfast was more than you could ask for. Loved the firm mattresses and pillows! Only drawback was another guest arriving at 1:00AM was a bit noisy unloading their car.

Roving33502747151, Siler City, North Carolina 16/04/2019

"Good stop on way home from Florida"

Kingston_Lou, Kingston, Canada 14/04/2019

We were encouraged to stay at the Santee Best Western Plus by friends who had come there regularly. They liked the motel and the fact that there was a seafood restaurant next door. Unfortunately, we arrived too late to go to the restaurant, but we were pleased with the Inn. All the rooms are ground level and we were in the back part of the Inn, which meant we had a very quiet night for sleeping. The room was relatively spacious and actually had two places to sit - unlike many other motels we have stayed in. The only disappointment was the fact that the breakfast area was small and hard to maneuver around in. The breakfast itself was pretty much the same as in Choice hotels, but the layout was not very intuitive. Would recommend staying at the Inn, though, and would suggest making reservations at the Captain's Table next door in advance - if you can predict when you will arrive.

"Best Western"

cscala2016, Saint Cloud, Florida 13/04/2019

The hotel was dated, but very clean. The staff were efficient. The bed was extremely comfortable. All in all, it was worth the price. There were restaurants nearby with quick access to I-95. The. Bathroom, though, was narrow, so a wheel chair would not fit into the bathroom.

"Our hotel of choice"

Judy V, Sterling, Virginia 06/04/2019

We stay here about 6 times a year on our way to/from our Florida for over 3 years. It is clean, friendly, and accept our two little dogs. No steps..park right outside the room. Not fancy, but perfect for us. Several eating opportunities close by.

"Nice Clean Hotel Along 95"

vflohr, Dillsburg, Pennsylvania 30/03/2019

We were happy to back our car up right to the room. The room was clean and nicely decorated. We would stay here again. Easy on and off I-95. 3 golf courses close by if you want to play golf after check-in.

"good beds"

User 27/03/2019

firm and not lumpy beds makes for a great night sleep. Hotel was in a quiet location which helped make it a good night. Located next to a golf course which was great for a late night stroll. Price made it a good value.

"Very nice place to stay"

ajmacdonaldjr, Fayetteville 19/03/2019

This is a very nice place to stay. The rooms are very nice, the breakfast is great, the pool is wonderful, and the staff are very helpful. Be sure to enjoy the seafood restaurant next door while you're staying here.

We spent two nights in Santee, SC at this Best Western. The room was average,very quiet, the beds extremely comfortable, the breakfast area was very clean and the array of food was good, hot, and plentiful.

"It's ok"

Dini35, Danville, Virginia 14/03/2019

This is obviously an older hotel but it is scrupulously clean. My objection is that the mattresses are way too firm for me. My husband noticed that too but it didn't bother him. I tossed and turned all night because I just couldn't get comfortable. Also the bathroom is in the split configuration with the sink outside the rest of the bathroom. I find that design really awkward but obviously others like it or hotels wouldn't do it. Aside from those issues of personal preference, the hotel seems fine. Again, it's very clean, the towels re thick and nice, lots of water pressure in the shower, and the breakfast is satisfying .


User 13/03/2019

Access is so easy and convenient. Free breakfast is great! The Help is amazing,. I left my cellphone in the room after checkout. My sister called y phone and the front desk clerk at the hotel answered and said she was holding it there for me or she could mail it. We returned to the hotel and they even let us go back to the room to retrieve the pie and candy and food we accidentally left in the refrigerator!

"Best western / Holiday Inn"

User 12/03/2019

Best western / Holiday Inn on our way to Florida we like to stay at best western plus. On our way down to Florida the one we like to stay at was full so we stayed at the Holiday Inn across the street. What a dump sorry double the price and no breakfast and not clean. Woke up with bites on my neck and got shocked using the hear dryer . They did call me and said sorry . Just not anything like the Best western right across the street . Hands down so much better and half the price.

"Very good hotel"

sgordon63, Cape Coral, Florida 03/03/2019

Good place to stay with nice rooms. Staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast area is very tight and it is hard to get around in there. Otherwise it is a nice place with proximity to the highway and food places.

"Overnight on the way to Florida"

SquanMariner, Spring Lake Heights, New Jersey 03/03/2019

We have stayed here before, this time we had our small beagle and called to inquire as to the pet policy. Dogs to 20lb so stayed again, a very comfortable motel, bathrooms somewhat dated but rooms nicely furnished. They put you in the back with plenty of space to walk the dog. There is a driving range and golf course right behind which I had not noticed last year. Adjacent to the Captains Quarters for a very pleasant and relaxing dinner after a long day on the road? $20 pet charge.

"Very nice stop on the I-95 corridor"

DonnaI031, South Jersey 03/03/2019

Stopped here on our way to Florida. A cute little hotel with a decent breakfast. Good mattress, clean room, hot shower with pressure, good internet speed and 4 HBO channels - that's all you need for a quick overnight stay and this hotel had it.

Stayed for one night while traveling to destination. Friendly people adequate breakfast and nice beds offered good nights sleep. We normaly only stay in hotels one or two nights while traveling and find Best Westerns to be clean and friendly with hot breakfast.

Loyce M, Lowell, Massachusetts 25/02/2019

We stayed here on the way to FL and on the way back. Clean, spacious and convenient. Lovely grounds and pool. The usual fare for breakfast- but well arranged- they care! Comfortable beds. Best Western seems to have changed their pillows since we last stayed at one- but they are very small.

"Great stay"

User 24/02/2019

Very clean and a good breakfast but there was no bacon. Easy to get to right off the highway. Liked parking right outside our room, unloading and loading the car was easy. Will stay here again. Maybe next we will get to use the pool.

"Perfect, even for just a few hours."

gordonfan24815, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 21/02/2019

The hotel was perfect for a stopover up I-95 from Daytona. We were driving from Daytona to Pittsburgh and needed a place to catch some zzz's. The hotel was SO CLOSE to where I-95 meets Route 26 (to get to I-77), it was PERFECT. The price was great, and the staff was super friendly. Due to the length of the race and traffic, we didn't check in till 2 AM. Not a problem, they called to confirm we were still arriving, instead of just giving our room away. The hotel itself has a vintage feel with the rooms around the parking lot facing outside (no inside hallways). The hotel was quiet, the pillows were comfortable, and the beds allowed for a perfect nights sleep for two exhausted people from a long day. I highly recommend a stay. For the price, its 5 starts. The hotel also offers express checkout, and free hot breakfast. Thank you to the staff and hotel for being perfect. A+

"Just average"

Clarabellenh, Pembroke, New Hampshire 16/02/2019

There was nothing special about this hotel. I had tried to get into the Hampton Inn but they were full. If I was expecting something comparable, I would have been disappointed. We had a handicap room, pillows and bed were nothing to write home about it was like sleeping in someone's guest room. The ice maker was not in close proximity to our room and the breakfast was just okay. All in all, a very average stay.

"Great as always"

User 09/02/2019

Great place to stay. They converted an older motel into a nice staying facility. It was clean and the staff extremely friendly. Great stay and price was even better. Breakfast was plentiful and a wide variety. Will definitely be staying here again.

"One of our favorites"

rshimony, New Jersey 28/01/2019

This BW is just about perfect for our annual drives from NJ to Florida. The location is terrific (right off I-95), is within walking distance or a short drive to several quality restaurants, and is right next door to a fabulous golf facility. The motel is always well maintained and the staff is professional and helpful.

"Surprisingly nice hotel that takes dogs"

roxy835, richmond virginia 27/01/2019

We overnighted here on our way to Florida with our dogs and we were surprised at how nice this hotel was. Not cheap, but only one 20.00 pet fee with 2 dogs. The room was very clean with a comfortable bed. Usually "pet friendly" rooms are the worst rooms at the hotel, but not here. I would definitely recommend this if traveling with dogs.


Edward A, Ottawa, Canada 23/01/2019

The reviews looked good and a $70 coupon convinced us it was worth a go. Great reception. Very friendly. My wife has alergies and we were able to get one of the rooms that are not pet friendly. I wish all hotels would follow their lead. We love animals but usually have to stay at a place that does not allow pets. A nice compromise. The receptionist also recommended the next door Captain's Club Restaurant that I have rated as 5 star. This hotel is built like a motel. All one level with your car parked outside. Inside and out it is way better than a motel. Very clean and modern. We will be returning here on our return trip. If you are lucky enough to grab a coupon at the SC visitors centre you will have an incredible rate of $70. Even if you pay more it is a great buy.

"Good stopping point"

VAlovetotravel2, Midlothian, Virginia 21/01/2019

This overnight stop was recommended by a friend who drives to Florida every year. The location was good for easy on and off from I-95. Check-in was quick and we had a unit toward the back of the property since I requested a quiet room when making my reservation. I was initially skeptical about staying in a place that had no interior corridor, but it worked out fine. (There was no rain or ice). There are ice machines in breezeways midway down the row of rooms, and also a utility room with soda machines and a washer and dryer. The staff was friendly and efficient. The breakfast was one of the better ones we have had recently - the eggs were tasty, there were slices of ham and sausage. They had a yogurt machine that dispensed vanilla yogurt and there were toppings like granola and fruit you could add. The staff kept replenishing everything and cleaning the tables when guests left. Our room was clean and the towels were larger than some at other places where we stay overnight. There is free Internet access.

"Ok for a quick night stop"

concernedmom12, Ottawa, Canada 20/01/2019

Stayed here because of the glowing reviews. Can't say I was impressed. Very near I 95 which was great. Very disappointed because it was a motel style with rooms accessed only from the parking lot. We were at the back . Did not feel completely safe and hate that kind of hotel in the winter time. For breakfast, had to put on a winter coat to traipse outside to reach breakfast. Other than that , it was clean, comfortable beds, and adequate. No fanciness here.

"Travel stop right off of interstate 95"

HAMPTONUNIVPIRATE, Manassas, Virginia 16/01/2019

We arranged to stop at this hotel because of the travel delays we arrived at 2 a.m. the registering representative was so welcoming. The maid service was extremely friendly and they have great parking for our two vehicles we were both towing 22' trailers no problem. Very clean!! We will stop back to this location again!!

"Nice property in Santee, Ca."

Theresa M, Winchester, Ca, United States 08/01/2019

Just a one night getaway to go play Bingo at Viejas and not have to drive back same day. Very helpful staff(put out couple of bags in room before we returned. The Hot tub needed some work and they were aware of, just had not been done. I don't care for untrimmed palm trees in the pool area. Very messy. Nice breakfast offered. Clean, comfortable room.

"If you are traveling through..."

docoffee, Stuart 03/01/2019

The hotel is tired, but clean. It is okay if you are just traveling through but NOT if you want a quiet night's sleep. The parking lot is outside the room's door, which means every person who parks, goes into their room, or out to smoke, is going to sound just like they are IN your room. The breakfast was in a crowded room, made more so by the Christmas tree. On the plus side, the beds were comfortable, the water pressure good for a shower, and across the parking lot is The Captain's Quarters which was a nice place for dinner.

Linda S, General Manager at Best Western Plus Santee Inn, responded to this review
I do apologize you weren't able to sleep, sorry about the noise and the crowded breakfast room. We just had a lot of people here at the hotel and more people then usual eating our breakfast. Again I apologize for any inconvenience and we hope you will come and stay with us again Thanks Kimberly Smith Front Desk manager

This conveniently located motel serves those traveling through and others enjoying the area golf and fishing attractions. Your auto is always parked right outside your door. No elevators or long corridors to navigate.

"Great location and nice hotel"

M W, Brandon, Canada 28/12/2018

Second stop on a drive from Ottawa to Florida. It was a long day so we arrived around 9:45pm but no issues with check-in, and you park directly in front of your room. Nicely maintained hotel, lots of food options within walking or short driving distance. Good breakfast buffet options in the morning. Would definitely stop here again or recommend it to others. By the way check out the Exxon station just in front of the hotel, lots of local products: we bought delicious peach cider, pralines, and homemade turtles.

"Great "

Khalid R, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 22/12/2018

The best breakfast I've had in a while. I would definitely come back again. They really comfortable beds. Great customer service.check in was really easy. They could show you how the rooms look like if you want.

"Winter Storm Travel Surprise"

User 11/12/2018

Coming back from a cruise out of FL, we faced unexpected snow storm at home in NC. This BW was a pleasant find when we discovered we would not be able to make it home due to the weather. We will stay here in the future, when traveling.

"Overnight visit passing thru"

Ronald D, Bristol, Connecticut, United States 03/12/2018

We found this particular Best Western Plus to be a very modern, updated and exceptionally clean motel. Our single complaint was that the bathroom was rather small. I would recommend staying here to anyone looking for a stay in this area.

Linda S, General Manager at Best Western Plus Santee Inn, responded to this review
Thank you Ronald for staying at our hotel and for your review on Trip advisor your business is very much appreciated regards J.R.

"BW Santee"

Jonothan H, forked river, United States 26/11/2018

This hotel is clean and comfortable as well as being easy to get to from I95. It also has a feel of a resort from the welcoming front porch with rocking chairs and tables to the landscaped courtyard pool area.

"Excellent I would stay y there again"

User 26/11/2018

Friendly, accommodating easy to get too from highway I love the stay, parking available, food was good beds n pillows very comfy. Bathroom clean, maid service was very good overall I'm very please check in n checking out was excellent

"Great stopover"

User 25/11/2018

My mother and I recently spent the night here on our trip south from New Jersey. The room was very nice, and the morning breakfast was equal to Hampton Inn or Holiday Inn. Front desk staff was very polite and extremely helpful. I will definitely make this a stop again on future trips.

"Fishing trip"

jamesterb, Ronda, North Carolina 15/11/2018

Our room was very clean. The staff was very nice and friendly. Breakfast was the best Continental we have ever had. We will definitely stay here again. Easy to get and out of the parking lot. Located close to Interstate 95.

"Great spot to break up a trip farther south"

User 12/11/2018

Great room, breakfast and staff. Captain's Quarter restaurant could be good but was a disappointment. Service was slow and food was mediocre. Suspect this might have had to do with it being a busy night. Willing to give it another try in the future. Suggest discount should be offered to BE Plus guests.

"It was a good stop"

peggy5054, Jacksonville, Florida 08/11/2018

We used a coupon from a rest area magazine and got a good rate. The room was dated( but did have usb outlets in the bedside lamp), but it was clean, the bed was comfortable, and the shower was great. There was a small fridge and a microwave. The breakfast was standard midlevel motel food. The staff was friendly and efficient. I would stay here again.

Our room was clean and comfortable and each staff member we came into contact with was gracious. We had breakfast in a light, bright dining area which helped to begin our day. We will definitely make plans to stay there again. Actually, this was our second stay there this summer!

"Better than ever!"

kiawahvilla, Ridgewood, New Jersey 29/10/2018

We always enjoyed the gracious, personal service at the Best Western Santee Inn; but, we had not stayed there for several years as our travel took us in different directions. We were thrilled to find the hotel - with guest rooms now thoroughly renovated and breakfast buffet expanded - is even better than we remembered! Same friendly, highly professional staff, attentive service, and meticulous maintenance. We look forward to our next visit.

"Stay far far away - BUGS!!!"

FLDadof2, Land O Lakes, Florida 17/10/2018

While driving home from a wedding in Virginia, we made it to Santee, SC and were exhausted. Our first choice hotel was sold out and this hotel was across the street. We were tired and decided to give it a shot. We checked in and got a room. This hotel had multiple buildings and ours was in the back on the left. When we got in to the room, we do our standard check, and sadly the first thing we found was a roach on the table. We continued to inspect the room and while we didn't see any more roaches, we found the beds infected with bed bugs. Thankfully, we hadn't brought anything into the room and proceeded to leave and get a refund. It was truly sad that a hotel that's supposed to be a Plus or better than normal was in such shoddy shape. I sincerely hope that management corrects the problem. I doubt I'll ever stop at that location again.

Linda S, General Manager at Best Western Plus Santee Inn, responded to this review
I am sorry you had a issue here but the next day we had our exterminator come to inspect this room and there was not any bed bugs anywhere. Again I apologize but I hope you will give us another try. We did refund your card but again there was no bed bugs no where. Thanks Linda Springs General Manager

"Ny to Fla"

DCB273, Lindenhurst, New York 14/10/2018

Always try to stay at this hotel on trips to Fla. we are snowbirds and this hotel is convenient clean and directly off I95. The breakfast is plentiful and the room is always clean. There are no animals permitted and primary reason for our stay. No offense to the animal owners but I no longer have them and prefer to stay where not permitted.

"Excellent breakfast!"

794dougb, Columbus, Ohio 11/10/2018

We stayed at this BW the weekend of October 7, two nights, thru Oct. 8. Was clean, staff friendly, and the breakfast was very good! Great selection, hot breakfast. Weekends and Saturday served from 6 a.m. - 9:30 a.m. Sunday's until 10 a.m. One of the better breakfast's I've had at any hotel. The structure of the hotel has been around for awhile, maybe 20+ years. Has been renovated, but older. Bed comfortable. Hotel is all ground floors, no second floors rooms at all. The hotel is very spread out. Quiet location just off I-95. I'd recommend it.


alanwernerjr, Lakeland, Florida 09/10/2018

Great place to stop for a round of golf and great accomodations. Was on my way up north and decided to stop for the night, got a round of golf in and had an awesome dinner at Pedro's. Found out BWP has awesome golf packages throughout the year...

"Selfish non caring hotel chain"

User 17/09/2018

During the recent hurricane we evacuated to Santee BW. After our 2nd day with the storm approaching they post a sign stating if power goes out no refunds. How would they expect GUESTS to stay in s dark room with no A/C? We immediately checked out. How greedy can this world get? People at a vulnerable time , taken advantage of . No more Best Western, should be Worst Western.

Linda S, General Manager at Best Western Plus Santee Inn, responded to this review
Im sorry you feel the way you do. But we were taking everyone who needed a safe place to stay even with all their animals. We never lost power so everyone was fine. We put that note up to let everyone know If the power was to go out we did not have back up generators. Everyone understood. Again I apologize for the sign but Im thankful you were safe and we had no power outage the entire time. Kimberly Smith Front Desk Manager

"Nice place"

User 13/09/2018

Much better than some other motels we've tried in the area. Never stayed here before because we didn't think they allowed pets. We travel with two mini dachshunds. We were very pleasantly surprised. It is well kept and clean. They have a more than adequate breakfast with a nice variety of food...grits, sausage gravy and biscuits, eggs, waffles, etc. Desk personnel were friendly. Bonus: it's next door to Captain's Quarters, a great restaurant with great food and service. Definitely found our new best place to stay in Santee.

"Great Stop Over Spot"

Lenny M, Manalapan, New Jersey 31/08/2018

I have never stayed here because I lived in the area but I have had friends that stayed here and were very pleased. I know the owners and I know they run a very nice, clean motel. Everyone is very friendly that works there and they support the community.

"Great hotel. Clean, friendly, and excellent service."

This hotel is as good as it gets for a roadside highway hotel. The rooms were spotless. They had nice designer soaps in the bathroom. The free breakfast was extensive and the food was fresh. This is the place to stop in Santee.

jefferyo2017, Tarboro, North Carolina 28/07/2018

The family stayed here on the way to Charleston for a cruise. Rooms and pool were excellent. The Captain's Quarters Resturant next door was excellent. Only negative there were no gluten free options at breakfast for family with an allergy

"great value"

User 25/07/2018

We have stayed here several times over the years. There is no question that this is the best value at this exit. There are more expensive beds to rent and there are lower priced hotels but this one is just right. The staff has been there for several years. Breakfast was excellant with someone always there replenishing anything that needs it. The restaurant right next door is also superb..the Captains Quarters The one small issue was that I tried to reserve through Trip Advisor but couldn't and had to call the hotel direct.

"Prices didn't match"

tiffanyp652, Brooklyn, New York 25/07/2018

I reserved my room on Best Western's official website. Once we were all checked in and received the bill, I realized they were actually charging me more than the price I booked for online.. I was advised there was no one there I could speak to at that time and I'd have to come back the next morning to speak with a manager.. I never got the opportunity to speak with her because I was there to attend a funeral.. I just didn't understand how the price could all of a sudden change.. needless to say, I'll never stay there again..

"One Night Stay"

GawHhApm8, Texas 21/07/2018

Nice lobby, large pool and nice outdoor table/chair area. Rooms are okay at best. Bed is nice with fresh crisp sheets and then you move to the bathroom. Tub tile is old and moldy with heavy chalk applied, ceiling looks like it has had several leaks and has mold growing which is very unhealthy. Could be a nice place with a little updating and renovation. Enjoy!

"Decent Hotel for Price"

User 13/07/2018

Was working in the area for a few days and stayed at this hotel since had best price with breakfast included. Hotel was okay, what you would expect for price. Staff you could tell did not want to be there and were rude to some of the older guest at breakfast. The room was nice and had a comfortable bed though!

"Great comfort and value"

lekurlandsky, St. Augustine, Florida 12/07/2018

We have stayed here on three trips. Price is right. Grounds and rooms are well kept. I love the many Crepe Myrtle trees on the grounds. There is a pool and a seafood restaurant right next door. Staff is friendly, professional, and helpful. Rooms have microwave, refrigerator, and usual amenities. All rooms on first floor, and you may park your vehicle right outside your door.

"Traditional drive up model"

123CSH, Great Neck, New York 11/07/2018

Well maintained grounds. Was able to park right in front of room. Relaxing pool for mid-afternoon dip. Coffee available all day and night. Usual breakfast fare for Best Western--preformed eggs, make your own waffle and packaged pastries.

Augustus V, Weston, Florida 01/07/2018

We welcome the opportunity to stay here when passing through on our way from South Florida to the Northeast, which is about once per year, but we still enjoy the stopover. The hotel is quite cozy, clean and well maintained. It's been upgraded, it seems, since our last visit, and all is very pretty. We called from the road, and the desk clerk was very friendly and got us taken care of, and also signed me up for the rewards program at the same time. Nice upselling! We also enjoyed the lobby breakfast in the morning.

"Very nice"

User 02/06/2018

Hotel was amazing. We will stay there again when we visit. I just wish they would extend their breakfast to 10:30. So people won't have to wake up so early to eat. Other then that hotel was very nice.

vincedempsey7, St. Pete Beach, Florida 31/05/2018

Stayed mid-May on Florida/New York trip. Pet friendly,somewhat dated,very clean,surprisingly nicely landscaped,3 to 5 foot pool which children took full advantage of. Very comfortable bed,2 comfortable chairs. TV with extensive channels including 4 HBO and ESPN selections. 240 units -all ground level. Very good breakfast including eggs and sausage. Early check-in (1 PM) which we took advantage of. Next door to public golf course where we took an evening walk. Next-door to Captains Quarters seafood/steak restaurant. Will return

"Second stop on trip to Florida."

Kenneth R, Weymouth, United States 31/05/2018

Have been stopping here for many moons, never had a bad experience, hopefully will never. Ideal location, ground floor units, all kinds of restaurant's , and gas stations. And if your a golfer you got a golf course right next door. Also, I never used a out door pool for your kids.

"Clean as a whistle"

GrandpaDelrayDancer, Oakland Park, Florida 29/05/2018

We arrived at 11 pm and told her that I had some gift cards if she had not charged the room to card yet/. She too both $50 cards and one was not working and she said that I just need to call the BW tomorrow and correct the problem. I called and apparently there was a small problem with some of the gift cards and that they had cancelled all the era and had people call in. They activated mine immediately and I used it in the next evening in Barbourville, WV. Breakfast is very nice and clean with a full time lady assisting all and very helpful and accommodating. The staff and crew is excellent I have stayed at almost all along this stretch of I_95 and this is undoubtedly the absolute cleanest and nicest over several years.

"A TRULY Accessible Room for Travelers with Disabilities!"

tinazplace, Newport News, Virginia 28/05/2018

My husband and I were looking for a quiet place to stay for the night on our second honeymoon road trip from Orlando back home to Virginia. He convinced me to splurge a little more and find a nicer hotel, so we decided to give the Best Western in Santee, SC, try. BEST CHOICE EVER! The little extra we paid was well worth it! First of all, my husband has a wheelchair and needs an accessible room. Best Western was more than willing to help us, and we were both VERY impressed by the TRULY accessible bedroom and bathroom! He had plenty of comfort and ease when using the shower, as it was a true roll-in shower (vs. the traditional tub/shower combo offered even in many "accessible" rooms). My husband was very appreciative that he could clean up after a long day of driving. Secondly, this place had a delicious hot breakfast open from 6-9:30 AM. We were treated to hot eggs, sausage, hash browns, fruit, a waffle maker, oatmeal, cereals, yogurts, and so much more! The meal was a wonderful start to our morning. I was extremely impressed by their selection of hot items. The hard-working and dedicated Best Western employees made sure to refresh items that ran out and made sure that everyone had plenty to eat. Thank you so much for your hard work, Best Western staff! The third thing we really appreciated about this particular hotel was its location. Directly next store is a fine dining establishment called the Captain's Quarters. My husband and I ate a DELICIOUS dinner there, and it was all within walking distance from our hotel room. I love the fact that we didn't have to return to the open road to find something edible for dinner, and this was so much better than just "edible." The dinner at this restaurant was AMAZING, a place not to be missed! Finally, I had the BEST night of sleep I think I have had in YEARS at this hotel. I am not kidding. I'm the mom of two young kids, so ordinarily I'm lucky to get 7-8 hours a night back at home. Even on vacation, I was averaging 7-8 hours of sleep, if that, and by the return trip home, I felt very tired. By 9:30, I crashed, falling asleep to "The Big Bang Theory" on their nice spacious flatscreen TV, and I woke up at 8 AM the following morning, something I have not done in YEARS. I honestly felt revived and refreshed and truly ready for the rest of the drive home. I lament that I did not get the pleasure of using the hotel's gym or swimming pool, but this hotel is probably one of the most comfortable hotels I have stayed in while traveling, and my husband and I already hope to stop here again the next time we visit Florida. Thank you so much for giving us a restful, relaxing night of slumber, Best Western! :)

"Good stopover point"

donaldmlucy, Fort Pierce, Florida 16/05/2018

Good bed, good breakfast. Rooms need a bit of caulk and care, but don't let that stop you. This is a good place. The pool would be a hit with kids or grandkids. The nearby restaurants are affordable and the good is excellent. I have been through here many times, and I will stay at the BW in Santee again.

"Nice stop ovet"

dec1020, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 16/05/2018

Very convenient to I95 on our trip from Southwest Florida to Western Pennsylvania. Staff was welcoming and efficient upon checking. Property very clean and nicely landscaped with a nice small pool. Rooms are all on ground level. Very clean and spacious rooms with dated but nice decor. Bathrooms are large but in serious need of renovation. Failing plaster in shower, very loud exhaust fan, etc). Breakfast was great with a large variety of fresh selections. Pricing was attractive. Overall a great value for a single night stay. We will probably stay there again when we make our return trip south.

"Relaxing & serene respite from the road"

User 14/05/2018

Beautiful spacious CLEAN rooms, convenient on- off location from I 95 & a very welcoming hotel staff. The front desk clerks were very friendly & efficient. Spacious parking lot in & security was a priority. I will be returning when I can visit longer.


Kennyanvanessa, Morris Plains, New Jersey 14/05/2018

We were travelling to Daytona Beach , Fla. from NJ and after 12hrs in the car decided to stay at a BW Hotel . We found BW Santee was about 20 min south of our location on 95 , called and the front desk was very helpful , As a BW Rewards member they held the room without a deposit ,nice touch. Check in was very easy and quick , and then dinner recommendations for a nice restaurant were provided with in walking distance (next to hotel ).Breakfast the next morning was very good and tasty , Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone travelling on 95 and find themselves looking for a great place to stay

"Best choice in Santee"

William B, Columbia, South Carolina 13/05/2018

Overall a good stay at this property. Staff was friendly and helpful. Room is bright and the property was neat and well maintained. Breakfast was complete and available at 6am (a big plus). This is obviously an older property, but it has been adequately updated with the only exception being a lack of USB charge ports (not a big deal). Internet was fine and all amenities were good. Only real complaint is that the laminate (i.e. fake hard wood) floors in the room were filthy. You could not tell they were dirty to look, but taking off our shoes and walking just a few steps in the room, our socked feet were black. Rest of the room looked clean.

"Clean and quiet."

User 09/05/2018

Great value for the price. Clean rooms, quick and efficient check in. Really comfortable beds. I m not usually one to be comfortable in quality hotels, but in this one, I found myself feeling comfortable and safe. VERY PLEASED CUSTOMER.

"Good Choice!"

User 01/05/2018

Friendly efficient checkin. Nice clean room, bed and pillows superior than similar in this class. Good restaurant nearby, see my separate review for the Captains Quarters. For golfers, course, store, driving range adjacent to the hotel. Very pleasant traveler stay.

"Wonderful Hotel/not happy with the restaurant"

jerimoore, Natick, Massachusetts 01/05/2018

We look forward to stopping at this very nice hotel on our way home (Upstate NY) from Florida. We love the fact that all the rooms are at ground level. Although the bathrooms are older, the rooms are impeccably clean and my favorite is laminate floors - no carpet! Beds are attractive and comfy and there are plenty of pillows. The downside on this trip was our visit to the onsite restaurant. We have always enjoyed the close proximity of the restaurant to our room and the food has always been good. What a disappointment this year. Our server was lax, we were never offered bread and butter as seen at other tables and when finally presented our food left much to desire. My 10 oz rib eye, ordered medium, was overdone and as tough as shoe leather. My husband's meal was a bit better but way out of the “steller” range. He ordered a second glass of wine which only came when we stopped our server and asked for it. When I complained about my steak he offered to take it back for another (and reminded me that he had no control over what happens in the kitchen) but we had already waited well over 45 minutes for our food and were in no mood to wait longer. We watched folks at other tables arrive and be served before us. The offer of a “free” drink or “free” dessert did nothing to solve the problem of a lax server or badly overdone steak. We may stop again for the night, but not for the restaurant. By the way, it was a very expensive meal to boot.

"Love this old school motel"

Bhagavan M, Buckingham, Virginia, United States 25/04/2018

Kind of reminiscent of the fifties and sixties when motels abounded along the U.S. highways and byways. I love that you drive right up to your room, which opens to the outside, and walk only about six feet to your door. The inside is old school charm with modern convenience.The bed is as good as I have ever slept in. ( four pillows)The hot water comes up instantly and the shower has a massage head. The room is clean as a pin.The furniture is new but in a charming older style. Breakfast is free and is pretty good.The motel is about half way between Palm Beach and Washington D.C. so is a great stop over for those who want to break that trip into 2 days.I stay here every time we drive to Florida.

"Good value"

Jeffrey T, Benson, United States 18/04/2018

I have stayed at this property several times and each time find upgrades. It is obvious that the operators are looking to provide a good value for your traveling dollar, and they have succeeded. The rooms are always very clean with tile throughout rather than carpet. There is plenty of hot water and the drains work as intended. The property is conveniently located near the Interstate exit, but there is no perceived traffic noise. There is a Cracker Barrel nearby and fast food and other restaurants are within walking distance. Breakfast is the standard offered at Best Western Plus properties and never disappoints. Some front desk personnel in the late afternoon could improve their hospitality skills, but their lack is easily compensated by the quality of the rest of the property. I am a repeat customer here and will remain so.

Hotel is close to the main highway so that is a plus if you're looking simply for a place to sleep before you get on the road again. Room was ok, but outdated and needs to be updated. Wifi was available.

Keith R, Dartmouth 11/04/2018

As we traveled home from our vacation we planned a stopover in Santee not knowing where to stay because they have many hotels to choose from. Being a BW rewards members , we decided on the Best Western. It was a lovely htel, with friendly, helpful staff and a wonderful restaurant right next door. From the wifi to the breakfast and staff everything was great. If you're in the area we recommend this hotel.

This hotel is very dated and in need of a face lift. The quality of the breakfast was poor and the room was not clean. The only positive note was it has a wonderful restaurant next door, the Captains Quarters.

"Solid Place To Stay"

Pat G, Bethesda, Maryland, United States 06/04/2018

This BW is very busy. But the rooms are clean. It is quiet . Beds are comfortable. The breakfast is typical of BW and you can get a solid meal. The front desk staff is always very good. The housekeeping staff works hard.

"A pleasant surprise"

braunkst, Montgomery, Pennsylvania 04/04/2018

We were just looking for a quick overnight stay on our trip home from Florida. We found this quaint Best Western. Not a luxury hotel but very clean and comfortable. Would highly consider again when returning or going to Florida.

Linda S, General Manager at Best Western Plus Santee Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for leaving a post on trip advisor but I think you may have clicked on the wrong one because you have good scoring on everything except overall and you clicked the one? I think maybe by accident. I am glad you liked our hotel and look forward to seeing you again soon Thanks

"B to B+ rating.... not as good as last visit 3 years ago"

mollysnene, Boston 02/04/2018

Really liked this place when we stopped here in 2015, but was a bit disappointed this year. Good location. Cracker Barrel short 5 min drive, good breakfast, gas nearby,park right by door so easy unpack... but room seemed a little bit run down from last visit.. Because of location and set up, would probably stay again

"my review"

Raul J, Bergenfield 31/03/2018

nice place to stay. clean rooms and good is excellent and the staff is nice. I always stay there when coming down to florida. Usually I use my points but this time I was told at check in that in order to use them I had to make the reservation thru Best western directly.

"Be careful of Room 106!!! Rough sleep"

Tav4th, Plymouth, Massachusetts 27/03/2018

Great location for our visit here looking at properties. great breakfast and staff was friendly. It always surprises me that people don't tip the breakfast buffet workers, they work so hard and so early. Room was clean and I like the fact that there are no rugs, but the floor is very slippery and my white socks got filthy. I don't think they are washed, just swept. Desk staff was friendly but they should have told me before my 4th night that they never give out my room for more than one night because of the complaints. Here's what happens, you get in your very cozy bed and then the door next door starts slamming, not sure why until the first night. The room next door is the ice, laundry, snack room. On your way out it slams over and over. Then it starts up again in the early am with the cleaning staff. I hate to complain so I forgot about it until we were settled in bed at 11pm night two. Then it started again in the am. On night three I moved the bookcases with brochures against the door to keep it open and that did the trick, until the cleaning crew arrived in the am. When I checked out the girl at the desk said my room had a note that said "don't change room" she had no idea why but said we never use that room, you should have said something. Well she is correct I should have but lesson learned for the next guy. If you are a light sleeper do not accept this room. I should have asked for some money back once she told me this.

Only stayed one nite. Not the best but 4 out of 5 stars. Front desk person needs some training. We traveled with a gift card & it took 45min. To figure out how to enter it. Otherwise, good overnite stay.

"Overnight stop"

ironman0160, Greensboro, North Carolina 23/03/2018

Great place, very clean. Like the fact that they have replaced the carpets in the rooms. Super friendly staff who are more than willing to accommodate your requests. We did not eat breakfast but it smelt delicious! Would stay again.

"OK for a road stop"

JennJack, Washington DC, District of Columbia 22/03/2018

This is a motel where you park right outside your door, and it's great if you have a lot of stuff to bring into the room. It's a little older and things are starting to fray a bit, but it's clean. Unfortunately, the fans in the bathroom are built into the only light switch, so there's no way to have light without the loud-ish fan. For us, this meant we heard the buzzing of a fan in the room next door late at night and also heard our own fan when one of us went in there in the middle of the night . The free breakfast was much inferior to what we get at a Fairfield Inn. Dry eggs, not a great selection. The woman at the front desk when we checked in was very unfriendly and I felt like I was interrupting something more important when I arrived. We don't usually stay at Best Western because we're members of Marriott and Hyatt. This stay was adequate but it didn't make us want to switch over to the Best Western Brand.

"Better than average in most respects!"

Richard S, Livingston nj 20/03/2018

The layout of this motel is antiquated but... The rooms although very old fashioned are clean and well cared for. The pool is small but nice. The breakfast is satisfactory. The front desk service is very good Just be aware of what you are getting before you book

"Love This Place - a unique gem!"

brucebender, Naples, Florida 19/03/2018

This is our to go stop going from Fl to our families up North. Pull up to the door, rooms very comfortable and very clean, and they offer a great breakfast. Bathrooms are on the small side and many need a redo, but still clean and manageable. Another plus, restaurant next door, The Captains Quarters is great. It is very obvious that the management Takes great pride in how they maintain, and care for this unique gem.

"A wonderful place to stop off I-95!"

docbj82, Hightstown 12/03/2018

I have typically had great stays at Best Western Plus hotels and this one was no exception! The hotel was convenient to I-95, was well maintained, and offered me everything I needed for my short stay. The bed was comfortable and the breakfast was tasty!

"Great Location"

TOOGROSS, Las Vegas, Nevada 06/03/2018

nicely renovated hotel; the type of hotel where you pull up out in front of your room--no messing with stairs or elevators. Right off the interstate, lots of options for dining. We stayed the night there on our way to Florida and we will stay there again on our way back up North. Good customer service.

"Enjoyable stay"

cambub, Farmville, Virginia 05/03/2018

Were there for 2 nights as we buried an Aunt of mine. Older property in excellent shape. Rooms have been renovated and are spacious and the amenities are up to date. Convenient to interstate 95. Staff helpful when my wife needed some more towels.

"Good stop"

Henry H, Rocky Mount, North Carolina 04/03/2018

"Very nice!"

ejl109, New Jersey 01/03/2018

We stopped here on our way home going north and were very glad we did. The girls at the front desk were very nice and we were pleased with the accommodations. The room was clean, the beds were comfortable, and the adjoining restaurant was delicious. And the free breakfast the next morning was great. There was everything from delicious coffee, scrambled eggs, sausage, bagels, waffles, etc. We will definitely stop back !

"Nice, clean place"

JimB8956, Manchester, Connecticut 01/03/2018

Had a nice stay here. Friendly desk, pretty quiet. Had a great breakfast. Easy on and off from Rt. 95. Walk to a great meal next door. (Captains Quarters) Used to stay across the street, and we were very happy with that hotel. But this one was $40 cheaper.

"There mistake cost us more then the room!!"

User 20/02/2018

We were looking in the area for a reasonable hotel to stay in the area since we would be working in the area for the next 4-5 months. So we stayed one night and thought it was OK even thought the rooms are not very big and the bathrooms are pretty small. But we could make it work. Breakfast is better then most. So after we left we called and made a reservation for the following week to stay for two weeks. When we arrived we had to inform them that our plans changed and would only be staying one night and would be back the following week for the longer stay.The girls at the frount desk said no problem. We could do that and change the reservation. Now we gave them our credit card to hold the reservation and then we paid with the company's card for the one night we would be staying.So nothing should of been charged on our card. The next day after leaving we stopped to eat and our card did not work so we check the bank and they charged our card for $2020.20 for the reservation that was canceled. So we called them and it took them over three to four days to figure out how to get our money back. Now were on the road with our card being over drafted for our bills that get taken out every month. Because they wiped us out and thanks to a great boss who had to send us money to live on while on the road. So we asked what should we do about our over draft because of them ,they said there was nothing they could do about that.Sorry for the mistake. So lesson learned not to stay in a one horse town in the Carolines and drive to Summersville where it doesn't cost us more then the room was for someone else's mistake.

Linda S, General Manager at Best Western Plus Santee Inn, responded to this review
I do apologize for the inconvenience this caused you but you booked room for 20 nights and at check in there is a sign at the desk that says you will be charged at check in for the full stay. When you checked in your card was authorized for the full stay and only settled out for one night. The authorization was released on our end and it was up to your bank to release it. I responded immediately to your request to send your bank a letter letting them know it was ok to release your money. This wasn't something done intentional its just a process of our audit when a room is checked in for 20 nights or for any amount of nights for that matter. Again we apologize and sorry for any inconvience this caused you.

"Pleasant surprise!"

dblavers, Wimauma, Florida 17/02/2018

Checked it out out of curiosity, and the fact that there was a coupon in the travel guide. It was great! Clean, very comfortable, convenient to the interstate. Felt safe and in good company with all the other travelers. Excellent breakfast. Hospitable folks. Only drawback was there aren't many places to eat nearby, except a fancy seafood place next door. Didn't want to dine as a party of one in a place like that. So, fast food was my only option, and there weren't a lot of those to choose from. But, that's not the fault of BW. The Inn was excellent. Would definitely recommend.

"Minature bathroom. King room"

2joy, Whiting, New Jersey 15/02/2018

The lighting was bright, new and had outlets for cell phones. Great lighting. Bed was comfortable. Room large. Bathroom was the smallest I have ever seen. To sit on the toilet you had to go in along side of the toilet to close the door. Minature bathroom. For a king size room. Breakfast was good.

"On way home"

User 15/02/2018

We stopped here our first night on the way home to NJ from Florida. The room was clean and upgraded with new rug and furniture. The lighting was bright and cheery. The bathroom had 2 sinks outside, which we like. The toilet/shower room is tiny and crowded. It would be better to move the wall and doir to include one of the sinks and give you room to dry and open the door. The shower and whirlpool tub have been poorly caulked and covered. They definately need true modernizing. The showerhead is very good. The staff was pleasant.

Linda S, General Manager at Best Western Plus Santee Inn, responded to this review

"Excellent Motel"

patriciabW8346JD, Nanjemoy, Maryland 28/01/2018

This motel is outstanding!! The Roma are great, staff is welcoming & the breakfast is outstsnding. Loved the quietness & comfortable beds. Check-in was fast and the staff is very pleasant. Wish it was warmer so we could have used the pool.

"Great location, especially if you're a golfer or like the fish."

User 28/01/2018

Good location, easy on off from 95. Good restaurant right next-door, basically on the property. Little concern over distance from my room to the lobby. Perfectly adequate and a golf course right next-door.

Very east to get to. Fron i95 very clean no bugs easy check in and express checkout. Nice restaurant next door with good quality food. Fast food and gas nearby. Wonderful breakfast featuring aerial eggs fruit bagels sausage and sausage gravy that I just love. Will stay on my return trip.

"Comfortable bed."

CRP94, Dartmouth, Canada 25/01/2018

We stayed here one night. It was set up like a motel and there were no floors. The staff weren't friendly. Well, they tried to be but it was a strain. The room was clean and the bed quite comfortable. Certainly better than the last BW plus we stayed at. The breakfast was not great. I don't like being negative but there really wasn't anything to be excited about. It was cheap though so for the money, it was ok. As long as the bed is comfortable and the room clean, it's good.

"In the right place !!"

mcarr0ll27, Granby, Connecticut 13/01/2018

The Santee Inn has a unique feature. All of the rooms are on the first floor. You can park your car about six feet away from the door of your hotel room. This makes this hotel the easiest in & out. In the evening, you will generally find the parking lot full during the "travel south to get warm" season. When you go to breakfast at 8:00 AM, about half the cars will be gone. It is easy to get an early start ! We use this hotel for our down to Florida run ! After we have settled in, we go to dinner at "Clark's Inn" in Santee to have a nice dinner. Clark's has a nice dinning room with a menu that offers a wide range of options. A nice place !!

"Plus What?"

bdtravelers, Upstate NY 10/01/2018

We stay at Best Western's anytime we are traveling to somewhere else because we always know what to expect. they accept dogs, and we have not been disappointed. They are accommodating but I can't say this place is anything special. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. They offer an adequate breakfast but we have had better in other BW motels. We were advised that there was a problem with the water so we would have no water after 10 pm until 1 am. They gave us two water bottles. The next morning, the water was shut off again. Luckily we showered early so it didn't inconvenience us but we were not told there would be no water in the morning. If I had to stay in Santee again, I would probably stay at this motel but I wouldn't be looking forward to the stay. There were also some people wandering in the parking lot at dusk that clearly were not staying at the motel. I felt uncomfortable at the BW Santee.

"review is too long"

User 03/01/2018

Price advertised with coupon not honored, costed $40+ more. No newspaper, no tea bags in room. otherwise comfortable.Decor was fine, restaurant had 40 minute wait.Couldn't get a quick bowl of soup, it was a sit down dinner type, Greasy fish fumes departed the kitchen. Not great at the end of an 11 hour drive.

"Good Value"

P3940KJrobertam, Brooklyn, New York 02/01/2018

We have stayed at the Santee Best Western several times. The location is very conveniently located right off I-95. The rooms are clean and spacious. The staff is cordial. The breakfast that is included is a great feature as we do not have to stop on the road to eat. Overall a great expeience.

"Very Nice Inn just off I-95 in Santee SC"

892sherleyw, Crossville 25/12/2017

Arrived late, check in was easy, most guests already in their rooms. Had scheduled this as a launch location for Charleston next day business trip. Delighted at the very nice décor and well maintained inn in all regards. Up early next morning doing some computer and paperwork in the dining area prior to being open. Night keeper was a very nice elderly gentleman who even turned some lights on and allowed me to use the coffee maker in the breakfast area. Everyone involved was extremely conscious that guests are why they are there and treated us accordingly. Since I travel NC/SC quite a bit, I probably will stay at this inn again in the future.

"Great place to stay"

My sweetheart and I were in the middle of a long road trip to Florida. We decided to have a good night sleep in a hotel. I am very glad that we picked this hotel. It is very clean and comfortable. The grounds were well maintained and the property was professional and pleasing to the eye. They provide free wi-wifi and it was located next to a restaurant called "Captain's Quarters. This venue provide great service. We loved this hotel. If we are ever in this area in the future, we would definitely stay at this hotel again.


Judy669, Clinton, Connecticut 22/12/2017

Sandra G, Manassas, Virginia 22/12/2017

We usually stay at Hampton Inn or another Hilton brand but could not get a room at our usual place. We decided to try this Best Western and couldn't be more pleased we did. All one level, park in front of your door, friendly staff, breakfast included. Very nice rooms, well furnished and large, with a vending room, an exercise room, nice pool and sit down restaurant on site. Very clean too. We received a discount for being BW members, putting it at under $100/night, very good for the area and time of year.

The price of my room is getting to be out of my reach, even with AARP or AAA discounts. Otherwise, it's a perfect place for me, clean, safe and familiar. I appreciate that staff recognize me from one visit to the next, and they take good care of all their travelers.

"Not really a Best Western "PLUS""

Judith O, rockledge, United States 18/12/2017

"Not up to PLUS standards"

bas2sb, Saint Johnsbury, Vermont 07/12/2017

Positives - The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our king-bed room was roomy and comfortable. The fitness room looked very nice though we didn't have time to use it. Disappointments - The bathroom was split with the sink in the bedroom area. The toilet & tub room was very very small and very dated. Our room was in an unattached building making it awkward to either walk through the gated outside pool area or around to the front of the hotel to enter the breakfast area. There were little cups on each breakfast area table implying a tip to staff was desired.

"Best Western at Santee, SC"

The breakfast was excellent and the breakfast worker was very helpful and pleasant.

Charles A, Denville, New Jersey 05/12/2017

Every two years I drive to Florida from New Jersey. I have been doing this since 2005. My first stay at this location was determined by the distance I wanted to drive on the first day. I have been impressed with this Best Western Plus due to its' cleanliness, friendly staff, ease in checking in, and location of a restaurant on the property, however I did not go to the restaurant on this trip. I highly recommend staying here. Regarding the below question about the pool being heated, I don't know if it is as I never used it.

"Best western experience"

Aimel R, Silver Spring, Maryland 02/12/2017

P6512CAchristinej, Oberlin, United States 30/11/2017

This is a comfortable hotel, the room rate is comparable to the location, but the rooms and common areas of the hotel are much better kept than those in the area. I can't give the complimentary breakfast a review because I didn't go in for it but the breakfast area looks to be very nice. I would recommend this hotel to travelers in the area.

A perfect place to stop on the way North or South. Very well kept property, clean and comfortable rooms. My husband loves just pulling up and packing in front of room.

"Very convenient and good value"

SquanMariner, USA 16/11/2017

Santee probably the Mecca for an overnight stop for travelers by road between Florida and the North east. This Best Western is an up market Motel with lovey rooms and you drive right to your room. There is a small attractive pool which we did not use and breakfast, we left early so did not take advantage. Next door, just steps away is the Captains Quarters, a very pleasant restaurant with great service and food. They have a no pet policy which will probably count us out in the future. Otherwise we would definitely return.

Traveling from Philadelphia area to Ft Myers. Did my research and decided on this hotel as well as the good reviews for the restaurant just across the parking lot (Captain's Quarters). I pulled in around 5 and few cars parked, but by the time I finished dinner the hotel appeared to be full. Glad I made reservations.

"Not Good - Intentionally Misled"

Rick K, St. Petersburg Florida 26/10/2017

Not good on so many fronts. Was told at check-in because of BW Rewards, we were being upgraded. This was a lie, that was confirmed at check-out the next morning - that we were not upgraded. That's strange. We got to room and it was in not a good location, and was a standard room that was not in the best condition and not real clean and a little musty. Didn't notice until later, but the bathroom had not a little, but a lot of very visible mold. By The time we noticed, it was late and we needed to get to sleep. They gave us $20 refund - it should have been a total refund.I showed them a picture of the mold, I most certainly don't like being misled on purpose, of which was intentional that was acknowledged by the morning desk staff, and I would have much preferred a clean room in a nicer area that we were put. They should be ashamed. Check out your room before accepting it.

"Nice stay"

charaiken, Aiken, South Carolina 25/10/2017

Very clean, a lot of areas to sit outside. Note on door "no pajamas, no shoes allowed" I found this refreshing in the sense that a lot of people dress as if they are in their own hoe when coming to breakfast at a motel, I find it repulsive. The breakfast was great with a huge selection. They are right across the road from Captain Quarters which is an excellent restaurant.

"Great stay"

25kentd, Livingston, United States 19/10/2017

Don't hesitate to stay here, large clean rooms, comfy beds, plenty of parking. Hotel was also clean and well decorated. The staff were pleasant and caring. Great location right off or RT. 95, so easily accessible.

"Group Golf Trip"

rhodesr2017, Columbus, United States 15/10/2017

I have stayed at this motel for group golf trip annually for the past 6 years. They always go out of their way to provide our group with the best accommodations that are available in the area. Staff are always friendly and attentive!

"Pet friendly accommodations"

leamonglenne, Wilson, United States 12/10/2017

Great value for excellent accommodations. Very nice space to walk a pet. Convenient location to gas and restaurants and major interstate. Workout room was available as well as laundry facilities. Laundry facilities had necessary supplies available. Pool as very nice with towels supplied.

"Lovely Hotel"

Michelle F, Fairfax, Virginia 11/10/2017

When we arrived I was concerned as it appeared to be a 'motel' with outside access to the rooms. But once we entered the room that was not an issue as the furnishings were beautiful, very clean, comfortable beds, great wifi and an overall very nice facility. The full hot breakfast was wonderful with lot of choices.

Linda S, General Manager at Best Western Plus Santee Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for the nice post about our motel. We appreciate the comments. We hope to see you again soon Linda Springs

"Comfortable Stay"

Carolyn D, Lexington, South Carolina 09/10/2017

The room was spacious and clean. The hotel is just off of the exit. The area was quiet with just the general movement of people around the hotel. Santee is a quaint area. There is a general store with local items within walking distance.

"First time stay"

charlessP8409MK, Norfolk, Virginia 08/10/2017

It was the first time we have stayed at a Best Western hotel. We had a wonderful stay and a nice breakfast the next morning before we continued on to Norfolk, VA. We plan on staying there on our way back to Florida. They even allowed our pet to stay.

"Completely satisfactory"

William V, Charlottesville, United States 08/10/2017

Have stayed here several times over the years and always had a good experience. Will DEFINITELY stay here again when in Santee. Like the fact it is a one level building and next door to a really nice restaurant. The property is always quiet overnight and have never had any security issues.

"Nice Place For an Overnight Stay"

Jimmy J, Green Cove Springs, Florida 03/10/2017

Nice accommodations. Friendly staff, nice selection of breakfast items. We chose this hotel because it was close to the highway and reasonably priced for the hotels in the area. Only knock is they need to provide different choices of pillows, the ones in our room were huge. Had to use bedding instead.

"Good motel right off Rt 95"

User 03/10/2017

Great little motel which provides the convenience of having your car able to be parked right outside your room. Themotel provides an outdoor pool and a small exercise room if that is your desire. The room is older but somewhat modernized. It's very quiet and comfortable. A somewhat complete complementary breakfast selection is provided. There is also the Captain's Quarters Restaurant just outside the lobby and pool. Very good service and above average food at fair pricing

"Always Fine"

User 26/09/2017

This is our stop on our trip to FL. We actually look forward to the stay. The Hotel is clean, comfortable with a lovely southern appeal. The lobby is very appealing. I love swimming in the pool at night when it is lit up and the air is still warm. The breakfast includes gravy and biscuits. Fine place to stay.

"Clean Hotel"

Lynn W, Oklahoma 21/09/2017

When we first arrived, we were told we didn't have a reservation, although I had called a couple days before to confirm. Luckily, they had plenty of rooms. After we got the bugs worked out, check in was quick and easy. Our room, 114, was clean and comfortable with updated furnishings. All the rooms had exterior entry doors. The fridge was on the small side and the water pressure low, but all in all the room was great. Most of the rooms are off the road so noise is at a minimum. Several restaurants, Lake Marion and the Santee National Wildlife Refuge are nearby as well.


User 18/09/2017

Not what you would call an elegant, upscale hotel, but great value in terms of cleanliness, staff friendliness, good breakfast, and especially the good quality bedding. We shall return!! The only issue we had was the lack of any very nice restaurants in the area for dinner. An excellent deli was found nearby.

"High marks for Best Western Santee SC"

User 17/09/2017

We ALWAYS stat at this Best Western when traveling to and from Florida. Clean rooms, a great sleep and wonderful breakfast. We love the convenience of being able to park in front of our room. We inevitably meet nice people during our stay. It's a few dollars more than other hotels at this exit, and a few dollars less than others. But we think it's the best deal in town.

"Lovely place, but, not totally up to 'Plus' standard"

collager, Vero Beach, Florida 15/09/2017

We stayed at Santee Inn twice in one week during the Florida Hurricane Irma evacuation. The first night on the road North to NY....the room was impressive and we were very comfortable and happy to be in a large room with direct access to our car. We hadn't been there in a while, so marvelled at how great everything looked!. However, the visit on the way back was disappointing. There was a piece of furniture missing that had been in the first room (a dresser on the wall abutting the bathroom). The tissue holder was rusty and had exactly two tissues left in it, with no extra box to be found. In general, the room was not nearly as in good condition as the one we had stayed in on the first night. The biggest problem though had to do with breakfast. For a BW to be designated a 'plus' I would expect it to be a step above. Surprisingly, on both visits 'standard higher level motel' breakfast fair was missing....such as hard boiled eggs, fresh oatmeal, walnuts, and raisins. The yogurt machine was a nice touch, but, while at the first visit there were some very limited 'fixings' such as almonds next to the machine.....on the second visit there was a sign about fixings, but, nothing there. When I asked the attendant for raisins or almonds, I was told that they never have raisins, but, she would go to the kitchen to try to find some almonds for me. I said that almonds had been next to the yogurt a couple of days before. Oddly she went to the kitchen and brought me a paper cup filled with sliced almonds, but, she never put them out next to the yogurt where they could have been enjoyed by everyone and where they should have been in the first place. Bottom Line:. Breakfast at a Best Western Plus should include assorted goodies to put in the oatmeal. At other motels there are walnuts, raisins, almonds, brown sugar, cinnamon and granola bits to accompany the oatmeal and yogurt. And cut up fresh melon!. Here there were no nuts and no melon. And I would expect the oatmeal to be a big pot, as in other places of high caliber. And the scrambled eggs were inedible...The breakfast just did not live up to a 'Plus' standard.

"A safe harbor in the midst of the storm"

D1186PNstacyb, Wesley Chapel, United States 12/09/2017

Best Western Plus in Santee, SC was our safe harbor in the midst of Hurricane Irma. The warm charm of the inn and staff were of great comfort at a challenging time. It's proximity to Lake Marion makes it a future destination for our family when we can relax and enjoy all it has to offer.

"Very clean room"

lori v, Mannington, New Jersey 07/09/2017

We stayed here in August while traveling to Florida, room was clean and staff was very helpful. We will stay here again. We arrived late and it was raining so we didn't get a chance to explore the grounds other than the pool area which looked very clean and nice

"As usual"

treble32, Sebring, Florida 07/09/2017

Have stayed at this motel when they weren't pet friendly and when they were. Have never had a bad stay. Maybe I'm lucky, but I have never been hassled by bugs,loud patrons,failing appliances or anything that has disrupted my stay. Yes it is older but who cares. Check in is always easy,breakfast is good,pool is fine. Location is great. Easy on/off Rte95. Have only one beef. Not with BW. The inn across the way (Captain Quarters) does not serve non alcoholic beer. What's a teatotler to do. Iced tea??

"Great place to stay"

cats1213, Drexel Hill, Pennsylvania 04/09/2017

Very nice hotel. Rooms are nice, clean and well kept. Beds are high and hard to get in/out of. Breakfast is good. Staff is professional and courteous, but it would be nice if they were more welcoming and friendly.

"Suits us."

User 03/09/2017

The motel is located close to the half-way point of a trip that my wife and I make regularly. Because ti's all single story, there aren't any stairs or elevators to negotiate. Because parking in available at the door to every room, unloading and reloading for a single night is easy.

"Not so friendly staff"

User 31/08/2017

We should have driven a little farther. Rooms are outdated but functional. Night staff wouldn't let a child use the bathroom and I got a nasty look in the morning when I asked for a tampon. Courtyard is nice

"A great place to stay"

Douglas S, Gulfport, FL, United States 31/08/2017

Our second visit to this particular Best Western. On the first stay, they were in the process of renovating the facility. The work and effort put into the renovation is noticeable and well done. The staff was friendly and efficient. The breakfast was well presented and well prepared. I would recommend this facility to anyone needing a place to stay for a night or longer.

"Over night stay en route to Florida "

Extremely nice accommodations...clean and comfortable. Friendly staff and well managed buffet with great selection of breakfast items. This motel is located at the intersection of 95 and exit 98 in Santee, South Carolina. While we went a little out of our way to stay there, we would definitely return again and recommend it to others.

Enjoyed watching eclipse from hotel pool! Friendly front desk staff! Clean room! Right off I-95, about 1 minute off it! Even though the hotel was full & our room was near the pool the room was very quiet.

"So sleeved out!!!!"

User 27/08/2017

I never ever write reviews but I was so frazzled by my experience I felt it was necessary so I can help others make a choice to never stay at this hotel. I was traveling home with my family of 5 plus my dog and needed a clean nice place to stay. I read some reviews quickly online and they all seemed to say it was clean with the exception of a few. Being that we were all tired I felt I would try it anyway regardless of the few negative reviews I try not to be judgemental and I like to make my own decisions but I should have listened to what the people were telling me!!! Upon arrival which was already late I asked the clerk Melissa if the rooms were clean because my daughter was sick and I was nervous already. Let's face it nothing is like home especially when you are a clean freak!!! She replied well you are in a pet friendly room!!! OK! I SHOULD HAVE LEFT WITH THAT REMARK! What does that mean I have a dog for 13 yrs and my house is as clean as a whistle!!! Not only was the smell of the room unbearable I found a can of soda behind the bead and tons!!!! Of black Beatles all over the room. I understand they do come from outside but if you are a good hotel with housekeeping have the room cleaned.. I also found another strange but on the rug and a moth under the bed....GROSS What really upset me the most was the French get in the bed..ok so now you don't change sheets between guests! Unreal! I couldn't even complain for a new room bc at this point 2 of my 3 children were sleeping and we needed to rest for a long ride home up north. Not only did I not sleep bc I was so afraid to let me dog loose of his least bc I was afraid he was going to find something he wasn't suppose to and eat it, I was completely sick from my experience. On our way to Florida we stayed at a beautiful CLEAN pet friendly hotel that was a comment like that was a major red flag that this place was not a place for me. THIS PLACE WAS THE ONLY ONE THAT WAS PET FRIENDLY WITH 3 STARS SO I TRUSTED IT!!!°° SO JUST GOES TO SHOW YOU TRUST WHAT YOU READ WHEN PEOPLE WRITE REVIEWS!!!! PLEASE!!!! GO ELSEWHERE!!!

"Nice BUT!!!"

P6512CAchristinej, Oberlin, United States 15/08/2017

Pleasant property but hotel has bed bugs that the owner refused to address. Her defense was that her maintenance staff didn't see any after I showed her a picture of the one resting on my pillow the morning of my checkout. She didn't give me any confidence that the issue would be addressed therefore I would never stay at this property again or recommend it to anyone. Other than this I would give this hotel high ratings.

"Motel stay"

alfeil, Barefoot Bay, Florida 14/08/2017

A very nice motel, well kept. A bit over pricey. Room rate went up and so did pet fee. They overcharged my credit card from the receipt I received. Called them and they corrected it and gave me credit. Check your credit card statements!!

"An outstanding experience"

T L, Waterford, New York 11/08/2017

Stopped en route to Florida. Average place. Average location. Room was a bit dated, in need of improvements. Check-in staff wasn't especially friendly; their information was basic and quick, didn't do much to make me feel welcomed. Limited selection of places to eat in this location, but close to I-95 which is nice. Would opt for a different location next time.

"Excellent Experience"

Bed was so high had to use a stool to get in and I am 5' 4" Pool was very nice and clean and in a nice area. Very enjoyable. Staff was very nice and courteous. would recommend this hotel. We stayed one night on way down to Florida and one night on way back. Carpets need to either be cleaned or replaced. Otherwise we were satisfiedl


cynthoma, Columbia, South Carolina 07/08/2017

I was very skeptical about this hotel. I personally do not like staying at a hotel/motel that you enter the room from the outdoors. I was very surprise with this hotel. It was very nice and this is the only hotel I have ever stayed in with outdoors entry that I will stay again. I was very please. It was very clean and nicely decoration. The staff was very nice. I will stay again.

edcO7138MV, Orlando, United States 03/08/2017

After driving 750 miles this hotel was a nice clean place to stay at a reasonable price. I was able to make a reservation on the Best Western website and my room was available when I arrived. Check in was quick and easy. I was also offered the option of express check out

"Quick overnight"

lilac104, Raleigh, North Carolina 03/08/2017

I would not recommend this place for any type of stop. I waited to post my feedback because I was so upset after staying here. My husband and I stopped as a quick overnight on our way home from Disney with our grandchildren. We thought with Best Western rebranding we should check it out. Never again will I stay at a Best Western. It took us a month to recover from the bed bug bites we all received. So long Best Western!

"Surprisingly comfy"

B5487SYronaldb, Land O Lakes, United States 01/08/2017

Dropped in and a room was available. What I liked about this hotel was that it was on one floor only. The room was clean and comfortable and the bed outstanding. Very quiet with quite a few eating establishments nearby.

Patricia C, Pittsburgh 01/08/2017

We used this hotel as a stop off half way to Florida, It was clean and the staff was nice. The breakfast was good and the breakfast room was clean and attended to often. The pool was nice and clean. There were mosquitos in the area though, so bring some repellant - not the hotels fault obviously. An excellent value for the price.

joelsK9815LY, CLEARWATER, FL, United States 24/07/2017

We haven't been to a Best Western in many years, but based on reviews we gave this one a try. I required an accessible room because I use a mobility cart. We were able to pull our van right up to the door. Ramps every where on the property made it very accesible for me. Restaurant was good and breakfast service was good with plenty of staff working in the breakfast area. We would definitely make this a stop.

Very nicely Kept property , clean , well run , you can see they have put a lot of time and money into this Hotel. There are plenty of options in this town and it's a popular stopping point for travelers heading south . I have stayed at a few hotels here as it is my stop over for my trips south from NY . This is a few bucks more but I and my wife have piece of mind that we will have a clean , up to date room when we get there ...

"Best Western Plus in Santee, South Carolina"

LYEVBA, Florida 13/07/2017

After making a last minute decision to take a rest stop in the small town of Santee, SC, we found the Best Western Plus. Easy access to I-95, very clean, pretty reception area, very nice location, comfortable, affordable rooms, good service. Best was the surprise on-the-premises restaurant, the Captain's Table. For a franchise hotel, the restaurant served really good food. Nice bar, very friendly staff, and a great dinner. And the free breakfast has everything you would want. Also, though centrally located, the hotel sits next to a beautiful golf course. We will use the BW in Santee as a regular stopping off point on trips up north.

For a small town stop the Santee Best Western Plus is great. Clean, nice reception area, nice rooms, easy access to I-95. Best is the restaurant, a complete surprise, delicious meal, unusual for mainstream hotel franchises. Excellent service as well. We were only there one night, but would go back in a heartbeat and will use it as a stopping point when heading back and forth up north.

Linda S, General Manager at Best Western Plus Santee Inn, responded to this review
Your card was authorized and then the charge was posted. The authorization should have been refunded to your card by now. So you were not double charged. You were given a receipt showing this. And as far as the pajamas our rules here at our hotel which are stated at the door before you walk in states No pajamas No night gowns or No wet swim suits.

"Food left on sheets and floor for the hungry"

User 01/07/2017

We arrived after 11pm. Room 134. Inspection of the sheets on the bed near bathroom revealed what appeared to be noodle pieces. On the floor beside the mini fridge cabinet, there is a dog kibble. The front desk clerk was notified to bring new sheets and comet as I do not trust this room was cleanes at this point. She stated the room was cleaned by housekeeping because there was a checkout today. The hotel is at capacity so a change in rooms is not possible. I am not a fan of BW properties to begin with but due to the small town I am in, the choice is limited. Suffice to say, I did not sleep. Gross.

"Not bad, but not great"

Laura T, Manchester, Connecticut 24/06/2017

We stopped here for the night on our way to Florida. After having stayed at a few Best Western Plus hotels within the last year, I was expecting a little more. The room was an average size, but had that musty old hotel room smell. It was clean, but definitely needs upgrades. The grounds around the hotel were beautifully maintained and the staff was courteous. It was nice to be able to pull right up to our room. Breakfast was included and was fine. Wifi is also free, but both of us had difficulty connecting. It was easy on/off from 95 with plenty of options to eat nearby. Would I stay here again? Maybe - but I would probably give the Hampton Inn across the street a chance first.

Nice place old but well maintained. They are pet friendly in certain area if the hotel (room near 200 area) This hotel have room on ground level and really great spot to stay by the 95 in Santee SC. I found a better deal with the hotel direct than all website...

"Welcome to Santee"

User 22/06/2017

Nicely decorated rooms with comfortable beds, plenty of pillows, and AC that works. Of course the large screen tv with many channels relaxes you to sleep. The staff was pleasant and the breakfast was outstanding. Can't forget the BEST Thai food (and Asian) across the street where you least expect it. The owners come to your table and care about you. Food was excellent.

"In time of need"

191janie, Spartanburg, South Carolina 21/06/2017

Clean and comfortable, easy access with good staff who was very nice and helpful. Would stay at this hotel again and would recommend to others who are in the area. Draw back is that you could not bring your pet.

"Pleasant stay"

946jacquelynj, Fayetteville, North Carolina 20/06/2017

It was a very pleasant stay, there were a lot of bugs in the pool. Short of that for the price our stay was very enjoyable. We have been to this location before and will probably be back again when we visit our family members.

"Hidden Gem in Santee"

Gustavo E, West Palm Beach, Florida 18/06/2017

Quaint old fashioned hotel with all modern conveniences. My regular stopover between Florida and Virginia. Conveniently located just off I95 and close to several restaurants. A throwback to the 1960's.

"Nice Property! "

Rita43077, Forest Lake, Minnesota 17/06/2017

We stayed 1 night on our return to FL. Hotel has great outside & inside appearance. Our room was nicely decorated, clean & beds were comfortable. We loved parking outside our front door & not having anyone above us! The pool area & outside area is lovely & comfortable. Two restaurants within walking distance & adjacent to the property. Breakfast area was clean & spacious; nicely decorated. Breakfast items were good; loved the fresh yogurt machine! Our breakfast hostess was not very engaging & appeared to avoid contact with guests in the area. I would give this hotel 5 stars if our reservation & check in process hadn't been so difficult. This is the first time in years of traveling that our on-line reservation could not be retrieved through the front desk check in person (Nicki) even though we had a confirmation # & our credit card was charged. It took over 1/2 hour to straighten things out with hotel & BW call center. I won't know if we were double charged until I check our statement!

"Over Night Stay"

drivemyway, Orlando, Florida 13/06/2017

We are enjoying our over night stay here.Peaceful and quiet. Easy check in with wonderfully friendly staff. The hotel property is quite large, and very clean and neat. All rooms are first floor, and there is more than one building. Even the parking lot is clean! The pools is absolutely sparkling! Several hammocks for relaxing. Our room is well appointed with coffee maker, fridge, comfortable wing back chairs for relaxing, and the beds extremely comfortable. etc. free WiFi...Clean and neat, well taken care of. Continental breakfast in the morning. The Captain's Quarters Restaurant is next door, can walk to it...very very good food. Will stay again if in the area.

"Staff needs changing "

User 11/06/2017

Very nice and clean hotel.. really convenient for me traveling. Right off of 95, easy to find. Love being able to drive directly up to my room door. Breakfast is wonderful and the pool area is nice and relaxing. Only downfall I seemed to have encountered was the women at the front desk. Janet is who checked me in, okay at first but when trying to ask about nearby restaurants I got very indirect answers, I felt hurried out the door, and very unwelcome. The other girl who was working with her never acknowledged me standing there asking questions, sat in her chair on her phone the whole time, i asked her name and she stated Paige. Love this hotel but the staff that night seemed to want to be anywhere but there. Will be staying again! Hopefully friendlier people will be working up front to give your hotel the welcome it deserves.

"Handy to US 95"

Y3290OYjamesk, Port St Lucie, United States 11/06/2017

Enjoyed the pool after a day on the road. Clean rooms & restaurant right next door is very good. We stay at this motel every year on our trip to the north and have never been disappointed. Highly recommend to everyone.

"Meets all requirements"

watercop, Florida 09/06/2017

From check in to check out there were no problems for us. The nice restaurant in the parking lot is a bonus and earns it all five circles (stars?). We had been to the restaurant on a previous trip when the motel was either full or closed. I don't remember which. I booked here because of the brand as well as wanting to eat at the restaurant again. If the restaurant isn't connected in some way to the motel it should be. Or the other way around.

"Peaceful easy sleep"

User 05/06/2017

Best Western Plus got great reviews I know why. It's an oasis in the midst of 95 from south to north & back again! We stayed & had one of the best night's sleep ever! The place is clean no strange odors. The breakfast room is bright & cheery. The food is presented nicely & appears fresh. There is assistance when needed.I was given the local newspaper when requested no charge. The place is quiet overall. We were very impressed & we are world travelers

"Dave & Doreen"

V6063JSdavidb, Greer, South Carolina 05/06/2017

Comfort, service, amenities, value, cleanliness and location were all excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, we would enjoy another visit and we would not hesitate to recommend this facility to others.

"what a pleasure"

andrad125, clearwater, United States 05/06/2017

The Best western at Santee is a wonderful place to stay The premises are charming and the service is great the room was very well decorated and maintained. IT is obvious this is a classy property. We plan to stay here on a regular basis.

"Great Hotel off 95"

Q9149GHrobertk, The Villages, United States 05/06/2017

Older hotel, but well taken care of. Staff was great. The room and bed was comfortable and quiet. And the location off of 95 is great. We would definitely stay here again. Our grand daughter loved the pool and the breakfast in the morning was not too bad for a continental fare.

"Travel rest stop"

Joseph W, Leesburg 04/06/2017

When we travel north we always try to get to The Best Western in Santee. After a first long day ride we appreciate the hotel for a good night's rest and a good breakfast to continue our journey and start out on our next day a the right foot.

"Best Motel in America ?"

Jordan G, Higuera Blanca 29/05/2017

In short , they do everything right and have everything you need for less than 100$ a night. Hard to beat ! From the night I called and they answered the phone AT the property to the front desk service to the free breakfast to the spacious rooms ... excellent all.

"Summer Golf Trip"

Randy H, Bessemer City, North Carolina 22/05/2017

This hotel is conveniently located just off of I-95, Exit 98 SC-6. The staff is very accommodating and keep the rooms extremely clean. The pool area is great and kept spotless. Located near several great golf courses and fine restaurants. I will not stay at any other hotel in the area.

"Another Impressed Guest"

A3571WOrobertm, Springfield VA, United States 22/05/2017

We arrived in time to spend quality time at the excellently-maintained swimming pool. The look of the enclosed leisure area was inviting and well-kept. The water is clear and perfectly chlorinated. The check-in staff told us of the Mexican restaurant and the Thai restaurant within a half-mile of the hotel. We chose the Mexican place and a had a great meal.

""A Great Stop in SC""

Ssr6sd, Parlin, New Jersey 22/05/2017

Enjoy staying here and relaxing by the pool. Rooms are clean and beds are comfortable. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast items are various with something for everyone. There are several good restaurants in the area also. Santee is a very good place to unwind.

"Clean, Comfortable,Reasonable"

maryel998, Gulfport, Florida 22/05/2017

It is a old style motel where you can park your car right outside your door. Makes for easy loading and unloading. The room was comfortable with a king bed that seemed to be the size of a soccer field. The breakfast was the standard kind with ample amounts. Very reasonably priced and easy on/off on I 95. We would stay here again.

"Surprise gem"

User 20/05/2017

Needed an overnight on my way back home. Tired of seeing $160 a night hotels for less than 12 hours. Must say this was such a pleasant surprise. Clean, safe, friendly, smoking and non smoking rooms, fridge, micro, restaurant on premise and breakfast in the am, all for under $100. I have found a new over night point during my travels up and down 95. The staff was friendly, helpful and accommodating. Called an hour ahead of arrival, paid and checked in all but my signature. It was easy, and I was in my room in 5 mins.

"Clean & Comfortable"

TravelerTeri, Toronto, Canada 17/05/2017

What a nice surprise to be able to drive up to our room and unload. Well maintained property. Our room was spacious and clean, the bed comfortable, the shower great. No mold in the AC, which can be an issue in the southern states. Check in was fast and courteous. The only downside was the internet which was a bit slow. Breakfast was OK, standard hot & cold items. Very convenient to I-95. Will book here again.

"Golf trip "

456BobH, Rutherfordton, North Carolina 16/05/2017

Room was comfortable and clean. Pretty good but standard breakfast. Convenient to local courses. No concerns to mention. Can walk over to lighted driving range. Several good restaurants nearby. You can park right at your entry door.

"Perfect Location"

dennisj252, Charleston, South Carolina 14/05/2017

This Best Western is perfectly located off I-95 coming up from Florida. The appearance of the hotel inside and outside is beautifully decorated with a nice outdoor pool to sit by and use . Staff was friendly and polite. Breakfast was good and plentiful.

"Great hotel with great restaurant a few steps away"

Susan E, Bonita Springs, Florida 13/05/2017

We make a point to stay at this Best Western on our yearly trips between NY and Florida. The rooms are better than ever; very high class. The staff is always welcoming and helpful. The restaurant, The Captains Quarters, is not a chain and excellent. Always a pleasure to stay here

Linda S, General Manager at Best Western Plus Santee Inn, responded to this review

"Great stopover, beware of this one thing..."

edbatizu, Virginia Beach, Virginia 04/05/2017

I stay here 6-8 times a year traveling up and down I-95. Staff is great, rooms are clean and Internet is fast. This hotel also caters to large golf outing groups especially in the spring. I think they try to separate these guys from the general population but I've had nights where the party goes on late into the night in the parking lot and outside rooms making it tough to sleep. I now ask for a room away from the parties when booking.

"Nice stay"

622eagle, Toms River, New Jersey 03/05/2017

The room was ok. The bathroom sink is outside the bathroom. I prefer it inside the bathroom. Breakfast was good-your standard waffles, muffins, cereal, etc. The desk staff was nice and helpful in answering several of my questions.

"Frist time and last time. Not clean."

Jason B, Kernersville, North Carolina, United States 03/05/2017

Coming back from Florida we needed a hotel to rest with our 2 year old son. With Hampton and Holiday Inn booked we choose BW Plus. Had a booking issue on the website and then booked through Called front desk and she refused to honor the online price. Since it was so late and other hotels were booked we took it. First room had stains on the bed linens on both bed. Not small stains but large dark ones. Bed sheet, the fitted sheet and mattress pad were all stained heavily. The bathroom counter had a dusty film all over it, hair in the sink and toilet. The front desk moved us to a second room which was supposed to have been non-smoking but smelled of heavy smoke, same dirty film on the bathroom counter hair in the toilet hair in the sink and not to mention poop stains on and in the toilet. At midnight I took out the disinfecting wipes for my car to clean the bathroom and bathroom sink area and spray the room with Febreze to try and clean it. This was the last non-smoking open and it was midnight so we were stuck. Informed the front desk of all the problems again in the morning and they seemed concerned but could only offer points to a reward program that I am not a member of and will never use. They staff in the morning seemed very concered and helpful but in the end I was still out of $100 from staying in 2 dirty rooms.

"Overnight stop gem"

rozee8, Warwick, New York 01/05/2017

Picked this hotel at random as a midpoint on our drive from New York to Florida and were extremely happy with our choice. The hotel was very clean although a bit outdated, had a nice outdoor pool, close to restaurants and convenience stores and even had a putting green real close. It also,provided a nice breakfast.

"Quiet, Comfortable Overnight Stay"

Olivia4234, New York City, New York 27/04/2017

My husband's and my first impression of this Best Western was how neat and clean the entry to the lobby and the lobby itself was. There were no cigarette butts on the pavement. The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. My only complaint was the cramped space for the toilet and tub. When passing through again, we will definitely be back.

"At least 5 times to this Best Western"

Marlyse L, West Chester, Pennsylvania 27/04/2017

When we travel by car back and forth to Florida, we stay here. The staff is friendly, and go above and beyond and we are always treated well. Welll located just off 95 yet we don't find it noisy. Love to sit outside there with my breakfast by the pool area. See you next time!

"a bit shabby"

rhprice1, Newton, Massachusetts 26/04/2017

it was our second stay. the place is easy on easy off and across the driveway from a good restaurant.. the staff is friendly and happy to help. the facility itself is a bit of "faded glory". could use a sprucing up. Housekeeping did a less than stellar job and when we complained at the front desk while checking out we were graciously offered a discount

"Great Hotel"

dianeg859, sarasota f 26/04/2017

This is a lovely hotel with decent rates. Room was clean and comfortable. Despite hotel being full, I did not hear any noise from outside or inside from other guests. They have lovely grounds and a restaurant right next door. There are other restaurants in the area. I had a problem with the lights (my not knowing they operated off the light switch) but maintenance was there almost immediately and showed me how to work them. Will definitely be back for another stay.

"Great find!"

M8050TFannh, Cherry Hill, New Jersey 25/04/2017

Adorable place! Loved pool, hammocks and breakfast and coffee! Restaurant looked fabulous but didn't have time to try. Conveniently located off state highway and close to other stores/restaurants. Loved this place!

"Great location and very good property"

Jim d, Halifax, Canada 20/04/2017

Just off the I95 this is a perfect stop for this passing through. Excellent spacious property. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. Rooms were clean and had all the amenities. It was an excellent choice for us and I would return. They offer goal packages. In fact there is a golf course (Lake Marion) within walking distance. I would recommend and would return.

"Lovely, classic highway motel that has been beautifully maintained"

RickR, Richmond, VA 19/04/2017

Friendly and knowledgeable desk staff was a nice start to our stay. The pool and pool area are a nice place to spend some time, take a dip or sit and relax. Breakfast is above average. Room was clean and comfortable. We will stay again on our Florida trips.

"Stay on April 15/16."

Donald M, Trenton 17/04/2017

Arrived 150417, departure on 160417. Staff were most courteous and helpful. Location and parking were great. A very spacious property with very attractive pool and patio/lounging area. Room was very clean and toiletry supplies were very good. Bed was comfortable, although quite a height to get into. Had a king bed with four quite large pillows. However, the pillows were all quite thick and firm. I would suggest a combination of thick/thinner and firm/softer would accommodate more guest preferences. The breakfast was excellent. Check-out involved only leaving your keys in the room if you were leaving charges on your credit card. Very simple procedure. I would recommend this hotel and would stay again, even though the rate was higher than usual for my one-night stop-overs.

"Great place to stay"

BillQ496, Brantford, Canada 17/04/2017

Four of us were in Santee for golf and were not disappointed with the Best Western. Great staff at front desk and ladies who made our rooms up. Clean close to everything. Nice pool area.Parking right in front of your room was perfect.Breakfast fit the bill with good variety. We will be back next year as many of the other guests said they would.

"Excellent Motel Room"

James B, Groveland, Florida 16/04/2017

Clean room, nice location, courteous staff. Even though it is a motel style room - individual rooms facing the parking, it was quiet, We only stayed one night and left too early to take advantage of the free breakfast, but everything else we experienced was great. Even the internet connection was good! There is a great seafood restaurant literally at the end of the parking lot that you should definitely try called Captain's Quarters.

"Good place to stay on the way to Florida"

rbmackey, Ridgewood, New Jersey 05/04/2017

We have been staying at this Motel for the last 15 years to and from Florida from NJ. Clean, comfortable, has a refrigerator and a good breakfast. But the best is that the restaurant Captains Quarters has good American cooking. The only negative is that the price of the room has been steadily increasing.

"Excellent stop"

User 05/04/2017

We stayed here on our way home from Florida. Great choice. Receptionist recognized us as Gold member with a welcome sack which contained water snack and cookies. Accommodation was very Clean and comfortable. Restaurant next door made it even more appealing. Did not stay for breakfast.

"Great place on I-95"

Sid C, Americus, United States 03/04/2017

Excellent hotel. Park at the front door. Excellent local restaurant adjacent to hotel. Worth the stop. Always stay here when on business in SC. Check in is always quick. Nice golf course within walking distance to hotel. Wish there were more hotels available these days. You won't be disappointed. Front desk personnel always make your reservations when calling the hotel direct versus putting you on hold and transferring the call to Pakistan.

"Santee shines"

User 03/04/2017

Great service and and a nice heated pool. Breakfast is varied daily and has a wide choice of items. Front desk personnel helpful. Easy access to the hotel right off I95 and all rooms are ground floor with outside entrance which makes it convienant.

"Great place to stay"

Bruce B, Ocala, Florida 28/11/2016

We stopped here for the night. What a wonderful hotel/motel. Located off I-95 but far enough away where you heard no traffic noise. The room and the entire motel and grounds were clean and in excellent condition. The staff were excellent. We had a King room and the bed was very comfortable and had a great nights sleep. Located close to restaurants and shopping. We would certainly stay there again and certainly for more then one night. Would recommend this motel to family and friends and certainly worth the price.

"Small pet-friendly rooms"

islandtrav07, British Virgin Islands 27/11/2016

My son and I stayed at this property on our way south to Florida with two small dogs. I like that they do accept pets and have pet-friendly rooms. However, the beds were really small (don't believe they are Queen - felt like full sized) with small square pillows. Loved the soft water! The accommodations were fine overall, but the property did not feel like other Best Western "Plus" hotels I have stayed in...didn't really see the Plus! The breakfast buffet was fine as well - had eggs, bacon, waffles, pancakes. Just really cramped but they are able to move people in and out quickly and it was well maintained. I did choose to stay in another pet-friendly hotel in the area on our return trip north. Mainly because my daughter joined us and there was absolutely no way we could fit two people on those beds. And they did not provide roll away cots. Overall, the room was clean and the hotel well run. The rooms/beds just were not adequate for our needs.

"Best Western Plus in Santee, SC"

BPoucher, Arlington Heights, Illinois 19/11/2016

This one-story motel is an excellent place to spend the night.--a comfortable, clean room with an enjoyable breakfast and homey breakfast room. Supper club type restaurant is a short walk away, right next door. It hit the spot.

"Once again a great place for your golf trip"

RCAF831, Barrie, Canada 18/11/2016

So close to three awesome course...across the parking lot to the driving range, great amenities, and the breakfast will satisfy everyone. The beds are terrific and the room is big enough to accommodate all your equipment and still have room left over.

"Very comfortable spacious room"

Jeannie2207, Windsor, United Kingdom 11/11/2016

We only spent one night en route Florida to Virginia and needed a comfortable place to stay. This hotel fitted the bill completely. Comfortable, clean and quiet. Great breakfast too and friendly staff. We'll be back.


Ingrid W, None of anyone's business, United States 03/11/2016

Theresa H, Fairfax 01/11/2016

Great Hotel! Rooms are always clean, pool is sparkling, and breakfast in the morning is hot and fresh! Can't say enough about this gem of a hotel! From the minute you walk into the lobby, you know that you are going to have a great experience! My family has stayed at this hotel for 40 plus years. The rooms are beautiful and look like new! We would not consider staying at any other hotel in Santee! I wish more hotels were like this property. You won't be disappointed!

"Great experience"

Regina G, Santee, United States 31/10/2016

Comfortable, clean and reasonable. Right off route 95. Breakfast is nice, fresh and pleasant. Been saying at this hotel for 5 year and was never disappoined. Great restaurant. Food is awesome. All of the staff is great

"Great place to stop on a drive from North to South"

User 26/10/2016

We have stayed at this Best Western several times and it never disappoints. The room and bed are fine and It is right off I-95 exit 98 Santee, SC. Next door is an excellent seafood restaurant, Captain's Quarters, which you can walk to from the motel.

"Good for I95 trip"

User 21/10/2016

Friendly ladies at the desk. All one level. Can pull car very close to front door. Dated room. Adequately clean. Wifi worked very well. AC good. Quiet. Good TV. Small bathrooms. Better than most other motels in the area. Coffee in lobby 24 hours.

"One night stay"

Diane182166, Gatineau, Canada 20/10/2016

Very nice hotel. Large rooms, quiet. very clean. Comfortable bed and large chair. Nice flower and plants arrangements around, chairs and tables and two hamacs to spend time outside the room. Good breakfast hot and cold. Several restaurants at walking distance or very short distance by car.

"Quick stay on the road"

davida9162016, New Jersey 19/10/2016

The rooms were clean, but small. Had the basic amenities. Full breakfast buffet was included , but the quality was fair. Inexpensive and fine for one night. Parking right outside your room was great when traveling and having a packed car.


Robert S, Long Island 17/10/2016

BWP has a very convenient location to I-95. The reception and breakfast room are very nice and adequate size. My somewhat inexperienced tells me that this is an older property that was redone. Our room was smaller than comparable properties, but the furnishings, carpeting and beds looked new and fresh. The tub in the bathroom seems to be original, but the marble countertop for the sink was contemporary. Another good feature is that all the rooms are at ground level, making access easy.

"under re model"

Candace L, Moneta, United States 15/10/2016

Nice hotel in a very good location. Our room had new shower/tub new carpet, and room paint ( not in the bathroom yet) so it shows the room we had was under a re model process. It was very clean and the bed was great. I little more money than I thought for an older hotel but they seem to be bringing it back up to date. A nice compound, nicely laid out.

"Running from hurricane"

Lovevacations5092009, Bayville, New Jersey 08/10/2016

This resort was a wonderful surprise location staff and the restaurant next door was a pleasant surprise. Will definetely stay again on our way to and from florida. Easy on and off Rt 95 and close to gas stations which is good for traveling. Very nice pool

"Terrific VALUE"

Bernadette E, Powhatan, United States 06/10/2016

Everything was neat, clean, friendly, reasonable rate, delicious breakfast. The bed was very high for me. I am 5 ft, 5 in. This hotel has a separate wing for those who smoke. I thought that was considerate. It also had a bible in the room. I haven't seen that in a long time. Nice!

"Clean and easy access"

Foodaholic5270, Clifton, New Jersey 04/10/2016

On our return trip from Disney, we stopped at this hotel. Not your typical Best Western. All rooms are on the ground floor with entrances from Parking right in front of your room. Not my favorite, but much easier than carrying suitcases up stairs! The room was clean and typical of what most of these hotels off the highway are. They have free hot need to walk outside to get to the breakfast area...not an issue for us. There were a lot of golfers at the facility. There is nice restaurant right across from the parking lot but we opted for Cracker Barrel which is about 5 minutes away (but difficult to get to)! I would stay here again if our travels take us this way.

"Another winner."

Darlene B, Fort Myers 29/09/2016

Extremely easy and smooth check in. Room was excellent, with comfortable bed and no funky smells. All rooms are open to the outside, so you can park right at your door. Awesome AD and overall pleasant stay.

"Best western Santee"

John P, Flagler Beach, United States 27/09/2016

A very convenient location just off I95. Great Restaurant right next to hotel. Friendly staff and easy to get in and out. This is a great place to stop on your North South travels as you go up and down the I95 corridor.

"Reliable choice in Santee"

lawrence152, Hanover, Maryland 27/09/2016

Welcoming staff and lobby after a long day on the road. Average size room with little frills but clean and comfortable. Pool area looked nice although we did not use it because of the weather. Breakfast was the standard coffee/juice/muffin variety. Seafood restaurant was right next door but check their hours if interested.

"Large clean room"

804PartyOf5, Richmond, Virginia 27/09/2016

We stopped here on our drive from Virginia to Florida. I thought it was a good value for the price. The room was large and comfortable for 5 (2 adults, 3 kids. We did prepare for one kid to sleep on a mat on the floor). The only downside was that half of the AC unit was not blowing air, so it was slightly warm in the room. It wasn't bad enough to complain. The pool area was nice, and the general feel of the property was safe and inviting. The buildings are one-story and brick, with parking in front of your door. The breakfast area was crowded, but the food was very good. Overall, it was a good stay and we would definitely stop there again.

"A lovely older motel, immaculately kept"

deeloves2travel, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 24/09/2016

We have been stopping in Santee, South Carolina, on our annual trek down to Florida from Philly and have tried to book a room here, but they have always been full. Now I see why. We lucked out this time. A large, well kept, immaculate room, a lovely pool area, and a free morning breakfast, hard to beat. My husband appreciated the convenience of parking right outside our room; no second floor. A great restaurant a few steps away affiliated with the motel. AAA members get a very good rate.

Driving from Virginia to Florida and this was a great location to stop. The room had a microwave, refrigerator, and coffee pot. Bed was comfy, room was clean and free breakfast available. Heated outdoor pool .Parking is literally right outside your room! which I originally thought I would not like, but made it super easy to unload the car with a toddler.

"Clean rooms, quiet place "

User 22/09/2016

Nothing real flashy about this hotel but the rooms were very clean and it was quiet. They have a sign on the door that said no pjs in the lobby where they have breakfast but it didn't seem to be enforced. They had a nice selection of food for the continental breakfast.

"Great hotel to rest for the night!!"

User 21/09/2016

Found this hotel on Priceline for a good deal. We were driving from DC and needed a halfway point to crash the night on the way to Orlando. Didn't think too much of a Best Western but i was wrong! I arrived around 9pm and the young lady at the desk was very friendly and helpful. She quickly checked me in, gave me the keys and directions and i was on my way to the room. The room was LARGE. Larger than i expected. Beds were big and comfy. The room had a microwave and minifridge. Bathroom was on the small side but i suppose they sacrificed that space for the living area. More importantly everything was clean. One of the best parts was that all rooms were on the first floor so guests can just park right outside their room. In the morning, there is a full breakfast served in the lobby. AMAZING breakfast for supposedly a 3 star hotel (felt like 5 star). They had scrambled eggs, delicious breakfast potatoes, breakfast sausage, toast, oatmeal and even biscuits and gravy! This breakfast match or exceeds some of the other places out there that charge an arm and leg. Checkout was simple. Overall, i would definitely stay if i were to pass through again!

"Nice, Clean Little Motel"

Greg T, Canton, Ohio 17/09/2016

While traveling from Florida, we stopped for the night at the Best Western in Santee off of I-95. The employee at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. We were impressed with the room. It was extremely clean and the furniture/decor appeared relatively new. They have a really nice outdoor pool and a separate restaurant and the property. We aren't big on breakfast, therefore we cannot speak to the quality of the food. Great hotel if you have a physical disability or would prefer a motel that is on ground level. We were able to park our car directly in front of our room. We would highly recommend this hotel and would stay there again when traveling back and forth from Florida.

"Best Stay In Santee"

brucebender, Naples, Florida 16/09/2016

After many many years staying at the Holiday Inn in Santee we tried the Best Western Plus in Santee. We were so pleased, it became the place for us to spend the night in Santee! Very clean, excellent and very helpful front desk, and is totally reasonably priced. Although we have never had breakfast there, we are told it is very, very good! One floor easy in and out and for us the best part our favorite on the road restaurant Captain Quarters right next door!

"Clean, recently remodeled with a great breakfast!"

User 14/09/2016

This was a pleasant surprise on a recent road trip. It is an upgraded older style motel. The best part is the breakfast and the best part of the breakfast is the grits. As any grits connoisseur can tell you there is an art to making good grits and this place knows how to make them. I would stay there again just for the grits. Also, there is a nice pool area just off the dining room which is a nice place to have a cup of coffee. I have stayed in several places in Santee and this one was worth the extra twenty dollars or whatever it was.

"Best Western Plus, Santee SC, just off of I-95, so it was convenient"

User 13/09/2016

Clean place, breakfast was ok. Nothing wrong with the hotel, it was small, but clean. Conveniently close to I-95 so if you're making that long trip up and down I-95 and need a break, it's just fine. Would stay again if needed.

"sweet motel"

joseph l, Belleview, Florida 13/09/2016

a large and attractive property all on one floor. nice private and quiet rooms that are very clean and well appointed. the staff is very friendly and helpful. there is a very nice restaurant adjacent. nice campus with attractive outdoor pool

"Great place to stay! Newly refurbished! Comfortable beds!"

dwfanee d, Big Flats, New York 11/09/2016

Room was great-beds, towels, shower area all good. Quiet but that have been the time we were there. They try to place people in every other room so you don't get noise from other guests There is a restaurant next to the property-I think it is run by the same company - Captain's Quarters. The food there was edible but not exeptional. The beer selection has no craft brews-not even Sam Adams and a limited liquor selection. Breakfast was okay-they have bagels, yogurt, fruit, cereal, scrambled eggs, sausage. Quality is not the best but it is good enough for families to feed the kids. The fruit is both fresh and canned. But if all you want is a nice quiet sleep, I recommend the hotel! There is a pool that looked nice.

"Clean and friendly "

User 09/09/2016

We didn't have reservations. The front desk was professional and very friendly. Our room was clean and newly renovated. Lots of restaurants nearby to choose from. We went next door to the Captains Quarters which was recommended by the front desk. That was awesome too.

"hotel stay in South Carolina"

Carol B, Summerfield, United States 08/09/2016

The is the best Best Western we have ever stayed in. The room was lovely, the bed very comfortable and the breakfast delicious. We will definitely stay here again when we travel to South Carolina! Hopefully, sooner rather than longer.

"Comfortable and convenient"

Mary P, Nogales 07/09/2016

This hotel accepts pets and has several nice areas to walk the pet. The rooms are standard fare. The location is a stones throw from I 95 so it is easy to find. It is located just behind a very nice local Southen restaurant and near several others. They offer a nice, big breakfast before you are back on the road again. It happens to be adjacent to some strange little park like area with life-size elephant and giraffe! On the other side is a golf course so there is lots of grass and trees.

"Family reunion trip "

User 06/09/2016

Nice little hotel in Santee. Kinda in the middle of the main drag of Santee, very close to restaurants in Santee. The breakfast bar was really good. Recommend this place for nice quiet clean place to sleep with a jam up breakfast bar for the morning.

"One Night Stand"

Nancy D, Ocala, United States 06/09/2016

This Best Western is more than adequate for a one night stay while traveling north or south on I-95. We have stayed there at least twice a year for the last 6 years and never had a problem. Nothing fancy but fills the bill for crashing for a night's rest.

"Stay in Santee"

User 02/09/2016

The hotel staff is very attentive and the hotel is clean and welcoming. I used the pool area and found it to be very clean and relaxing. The Internet was fast and I was able to complete my work easily.

"Always pick this Bewst Western Plus"

Mermaidk, Bali 29/08/2016

My 3rd stay here. I actually plan my drives to stay here. Very "family owned" feel to the place. COMFORTABLE beds. ALL GROUND FLOOR rooms. Lots of other hotels at this exit and I only consider this one.

"Clean and Comfy"

User 28/08/2016

This hotel has a nice appearance and although you drive up to your door and there are not inside hallways, I felt safe. The room was clean and odor free. A great stay overall. Close to 95 and many restaurants.

"Family Trip"

Barbara S, Punta Gorda, United States 23/08/2016

The staff were very friendly and except for the air conditioner keeping my husband awake at intervals, the room was clean and easy for a handicapped traveler to maneuver around. I would not recommend the Shoneys restaurant that is close by. Not happy with the food quality, but the Cracker Barrel one mile down the road was good. We were very happy with the fact that there was parking right in front of the room and everything was on the main floor and not multiple floors.

"Highly Disappointed"

User 21/08/2016

Where do I start? We were in town for a family reunion and this was the chosen hotel for everyone to stay. We booked a room with 2 queen beds as we were traveling with two children for 4 days. . The beds are full size beds not queen. We had to beg for towels each day they seemed to be scarce. We returned from an outing on our 2nd day to find not only had fresh towels not been left but I room had not been cleaned. We reported this to the front desk but the staff did not seem too concerned. This is clearly a motel not a hotel. Bugs were able to get into our room from the outside due to the door not sealing properly. The bathrooms are entirely too small. The only almost good thing was the breakfast but the breakfast area was small with very little seating. The Internet service was spotty. Very old and run down motel. Spend a few dollars more and go across the street to Hampton Inn.

"Restful Night"

User 21/08/2016

After a long day of traveling in 90 degree heat and thunderstorms, I was tired and need a rest. I stopped in Santee only 2 hours from my destination. The Best Western was right of the exit and easy to get to. The staff was very welcoming. The property was very quite comfortable and clean, nice surrounding. I felt very safe. After the good night sleep, I had a breakfast that was very satisfying. They, also, included a to go snack for the road.

"No A/C"

User 20/08/2016

Staff real freindly...Room clean but a little small...Pool real nice...A/C in the room not working very well...! They changed it out but the one they put in is not working either...I would stay again as long as a/c worked..


suzannet463, Sarasota, Florida 20/08/2016

FOR A GREAT NITES SLEEP, sleep well in the plus, plus, plus Best Western Plus. For price, rest, clean, breakfast, pool and helpful staff you will want to stay here. Even all the guests were friendly and welcoming. Your welcome!


Philip T, virginia beach, United States 15/08/2016

The hotel was a stop over on my way from Virginia Beach to Cairo Georgia. The hotel was ok and the layout was nice, however being all one floor motel type rooms, you can hear everything outside your door all hours of the day, and in addition to that, the shower cold knob was so tight that most people would not have been able to turn it

"Great Place to Stay just of I-95"

MelanieJ204, Hertford, North Carolina, United States 14/08/2016

Far better than adequate. Old-style "motor inn," where you park in front of your room. BUT, inside you find a modern room. Great beds, fridge, microwave, high speed wifi. We will try to time our North-South trips to stay again.

"Clean room, nice staff"

Dana C, Salisbury, North Carolina 14/08/2016

Very clean. Nothing is out of place in the room, no repairs are seen in the room that need to be done, which is rare. Very polite staff, who seem to all take their jobs seriously. Pool area is spotless, pleasant all around. Several restaurants close by.

"Excellent Stay"

harjan2, Pleasantville 11/08/2016

I would most definitely stay here again. I go from Florida to NY a couple of times a year. I am marking this place a definite stop. They take pride in keeping up this place. The beds were queen size not double. Matresses were new. Cleanliness was a key to the hotels success.

"Great night"

Nancy N, Lakeland 10/08/2016

This hotel was a great find. The rooms were well appointed and very clean. Checking in was a breeze compared to other places we have been. The breakfast was very nice and the area was kept spotless and well stocked.

"Common Sense"

Arthur O, Ocala, United States 08/08/2016

I reserved a room at this house on Friday at 8:00 PM +/-. I made a mistake by not checking my reservation prior to booking. The reservation should have been Saturday/Sunday not Friday/Saturday. When I arrived at BW I was told that even though they had been paid by you they were going to charge me again. I have the privilege of paying twice for one room. The response from the motel was that since there was a third party vendor involved that could do nothing. We went over that ground 3 or 4 times. I asked that since they had been paid by you what would be the harm of recognizing the error that they would forgo being twice for the stay. I could readily understand double payment if the motel had been sold out on that Friday but it wasn't. It is neither your responsibility or the hotel's to protect me from my error. So what we have is an unhappy customer. Unhappy because I was honored by paying twice for one stay. Now I may be missing something, but wouldn't it have been better all the way around if the motel decided to forgo charging ne again for something that they had already been paid for. Again, certainly my mistake with the reservation......

Linda S, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Santee Inn, responded to this review
Thank you Mr. for your posting on trip advisor.I can understand you being upset about paying twice for your room. You stated you could understand if we were sold out. I do not know where you got your information but we were sold out both Friday and Saturday night. We held your room all Friday night because you booked thru a third party and you had a guarantee reservation. I am sorry you had a problem with your reservation. Respectfully Linda Springs

"Pricey for location but well maintained."

scdiner5663, Santee, South Carolina 05/08/2016

Everything is good about this hotel but check-in staff is not welcoming or friendly. Park at your room since it's a 1 floor hotel and wonderful restaurant next door. Also. They have a nice complementary breakfast in the morning. Too bad the desk staff is unfriendly.

"Pleasant overnight stay!"

Tony C, Vero Beach, Florida 03/08/2016

Traveling from Florida to New England and had been on the road all day. Convenient location off the I-95 Interstate with front of room free parking. Room rate very reasonably with a clean and well decorated room. Staff pleasant and helpful. AAA recommended. Free breakfast buffet was a nice surprise the following morning in the on-site restaurant. TV and free wi-fi was also available for personal and business use. The only minor complaint was the toilet area could of use some upgrading, at least in our room. Overall a good experience for an overnight stay!

"Amazing stay"

Douglas S, Gulfport, FL, United States 02/08/2016

I don't give high marks as a general rule however this facility and staff deserve them. Best stay I have had anywhere in quite some time. Easy access, clean rooms, pleasant staff and a more than adequate breakfast choices make this a great place to stay and I will do so the next time I am in the area.

"Great Deal"

Oren W, Santee, United States 02/08/2016

This is a great deal for the money. Very accessible to everything in the area. The room was outstanding and I stay in a lot of rooms, this ranks up there with any of them. The pool area is safe and clean, the morning breakfast is good enough. Nothing that will amaze you but good.Just a quality stay.

"Best Western Plus at Santee, South Carolina"

Connie V, Chesapeake, United States 01/08/2016

We have stayed at this hotel in the past, though the last time was a few years ago. We found the most recent upgrades very nice, and the beds themselves were very comfortable. The pool is just the right size. We were a little disappointed that there was a 30 to 45 minute wait to eat in the restaurant without a reservation which we were not aware of, so we ended up eating at a very poor Shoney's. We love the area and would stay again.

"Good for overnight stay"

dorothy883, Silver Springs, Florida 31/07/2016

We stayed one night during the week. The breakfast was good, standard continental fare. The pool was refreshing, clean and in good condition.The room was clean and the bed comfortable. The front desk personnel were helpful.

"Not bad"

User 31/07/2016

Friendly staff. Nice room, had a microwave, mini fridge, a/c worked great and it was upper 90s outside. Breakfast was good the next morning. After checking in I learned from another guest I could have saved 35 dollars had I booked and learn. Definitely would stay again.

"Comforting Relaxing Hotel"

Kerry-Anne L, Davenport, United States 28/07/2016

This was one of the best hotels to stay overnight while traveling North or South on I-95. Rooms are on the ground floor and spacious. Easy access to the highway. I would recommend this hotel to anyone couples, family, etc

"Not bad at all"

bklyntas, Brooklyn, NY 25/07/2016

Visited Santee, SC during the week of 7/7/16 for a family reunion in Holly Hill. Here are the best things about this property: the outdoor pool is AMAZING! I felt like I was at a private resort during the 2 mornings I spent some time at the pool. I was the only one poolside and it was fabulous! The water was warm and the pool was clean. In the evening it was more crowded with children and families, but that wasn't my concern. The breakfast was also very good and beyond my expectations. The room was basic, and as long as the air condition worked, I was fine. There was a small fridge and a microwave...both perks and the cable had more than enough channels. The worst things about the property....the rude housekeeping staff. I wish I had gotten the name of the rude young woman who, with much attitude, and not a pleasant word or look, dropped towels off at my brother-in-laws room. Disgusting, is the nicest way to describe her demeanor. In addition, our room was not cleaned the 1st day, and on the 2nd day, it was cleaned, but they didn't leave any wash cloths or towels. Overall, if visiting the area, I would stay here again, just not for 4 nights.

"A taste of the ghetto"

Suzanne S, Olympia, Washington 24/07/2016

It is a great place to go if you do not want to get any sleep because loud parties will keep you awake. The hotel staff will not stop the parties. I finally decided to pack up my family in the middle of the night and get out of the hotel. There was a weird guy who sat outside by our door all night and it appeared that he was on drugs. The noise carried in to my room so we were unable to get any sleep.

"Nice overnight retreat"

Karen H, Finksburg, Maryland 22/07/2016

Excellent stop over as 1/2 way point on travel to Tampa. Very clean, and maintained well with comfortable queen size beds and quality linens. Pool was clean and refreshing and relaxed our weiry grandchildren who had traveled over 14 hours for a normal 8 hour transit. Pleasant staff and very nice breakfast. Breakfast offers hot waffles, sausage gravy, quality yogurt, cereals, scrambled eggs. Constantly maintained and kept clean and appetizing. Stayed on travel to and from Tampa, when moving my granddaughter for college. Certainly will be a regular stop in the future

"Good Place to stay"

WILMERS P, Lorton, Virginia 21/07/2016

I was staying for one night on my trip between DC and Orlando, FL. The hotel is in very good condition, very clean rooms, the staff was very friendly and nice, place very quiet, the pool in very good condition and very clean, in the area there are good restaurants.

"Driving home"

Debbie E, Tampa, Florida 21/07/2016

We were driving home and decided to stay for the night. We chose the Best Western and were pleasantly surprised. It is very easy to get to restaurants and gas stations. The rooms were very clean and everything worked. Even had a mini fridge. The breakfast the next morning was free and had a good variety to choose from. They offer a military and veterans discount.


Debra S, Hernando 21/07/2016

We enjoyed this hotel a bunch. Very clean, staff was very pleasant, nice comfortable bed. The breakfast was great also. It was very quiet here. We stayed for 2 days and enjoyed will definitely come back.

"Way better than expected!"

Jeffrey T, Benson, United States 18/07/2016

This is an older style property, as am I (!!) with parking at the room door. Fine for me, but others prefer lobby access, I know. The property is conveniently located by the Interstae exit, but there is no highway noise. Restaurants, fuel, food store nearby. The rooms are clean with all the expected and hoped for amenities. A much appreciated plus is the water pressure in the shower...fantastic.....and the water drains quickly and freely from the tub ! Too often, this is not the case and slow drains are a personal pet peeve, but this is not the case with this property. I found the front desk attendant to be efficient and personable. The breakfast area is adequate (larger than some others I've experienced), clean and staffed; the breakfast items plentiful, fresh, varied and well presented. I didn't use the outdoor pool, but that area was like the rest of the property: clean and well maintained. This is a nice place to stay and I would not hesitate to return.

"A cute spot at an easy location"

Jesse R, Quantico, VA, United States 18/07/2016

The rooms were great, the staff was friendly, the beds were cozy, the breakfast was delicious, and the price was perfect! ($50 less than it's neighbors on that day) The building is showing some signs of aging, but it's more character than anything else. I saw that they had an assistance chair for getting elderly into and out of the pool. I didn't use it, but thought it was a nice touch... like the hammocks! They're right off of the interstate but the noise from it wasn't noticeable once you get indoors. It's walking distance (50 feet from door to door) to a good seafood place (not associated with the hotel). It gets packed so reservations might be a good idea for groups of 6 or more.

"Great Place to Stay"

Donna P, Boca Raton, United States 18/07/2016

The room was immaculate and the staff extremely helpful. The breakfast was the standard hotel fare, but it was hot and plentiful. My only complaint was an inattentive waitress at the adjoining restaurant. I would stay there again!

"Not For Me."

denise244, Hamilton, New Jersey 16/07/2016

This Best Western covers a lot of land with all rooms on the first level. There is a small pool, free wi-fi, and the typical breakfast fare in the morning. Check in was easy and fast thanks to the nice receptionist. The condition of the room I was given was under par; the door was ajar so there were mosquitos/flies already in the room, the rugs were stained beyond acceptable, I found dead bugs and other things left on the rug, and the AC unit was so loud that each time it turned on I was woken from my sleep. The "deadbolt" on the door was made of a very malleable, soft metal that would not provide a barrier for anyone who intended to break in. I've paid less for much nicer and cleaner accommodations. When I called to make the reservation I was told I could not have my two small dogs with me. As a result, I reached out to a AAA representative to arrange my accommodations and he happened to call this same hotel...they told him pets were not a problem. Hmmmm... As a single gal, I did not feel safe due to the malleable metal locks and I was put in one of the rooms farthest from reception (again, it is a very large property). This place is just not for me and I won't be going good back to this particular hotel in my travels south.

"Starting to show its age"

Mrfiz, Virginia Beach, Virginia 15/07/2016

Nice clean room with a comfortable bed. You can park right outside your room. Lots of places to eat nearby. Front desk clerk made recommendations as to which were good. Good lighting in room and I liked the recliner. Flat screen TV, fridge, m'wave and coffee maker provided. Decor is looking a bit dated. Friendly front desk staff is one reason I stopped here again. Was here in March for one night. Breakfast is typical motel continental breakfast fare. Coffee was especially good. Good stop for travelers.

"Great Place Great Price"

Carolyn C, Jacksonville 14/07/2016

Weren't sure what to expect in this small town but were very pleasantly surprised!! Clean and comfortable! Very safe area. We loved the landscaping and the hammocks! The rooms were nicely decorated and the beds were a nice size and comfortable.

"A good value for a superior product"

User 13/07/2016

The room was large and finely appointed. The bed was very comfortable with clean fresh bedding and the shower had the best water pressure I've found in a hotel in a while. It's all on one floor, so there is no stairs, which is nice for this retiree. The hot breakfast in the morning was very nice with scrambled eggs, potatoes and sausage, self made waffles, grits and sausage gravy, biscuits, hot and cold cereal, yogurt, etc. The coffee was also excellent. There's an employee on constant patrol during the breakfast hours to refill the items and keep the area clean, and she does an exceptional job. The breakfast area is fairly large, but a bit tight if there are lots of people eating at once. But based on our lovely room and this more that adequate breakfast, we definitely will be staying here again.

User 11/07/2016

We stayed here for the night on our way to Florida. What a lovely little hotel. There are many options for dinner nearby, the hotel was clean and the rooms smelled good. The beds were very comfortable. Our family got ice cream nearby and enjoyed it on the hammocks and lawn chairs by the pool. The breakfast was wonderful! Eggs, sausage, biscuits, gravy, grits and waffles! We enjoyed the fresh fruit, yogurt and cereal as well. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again!

Michele M, Point Pleasant Beach, New Jersey 09/07/2016

This motel was recommended to us by friends and we were happy enough with the accommodations that this will be our stop on our drive north and south at least twice a year. We have referred anyone we know traveling on Interstate 75 to this Best Western.

Suzanne V, bradenton, United States 05/07/2016

we haven't stayed here in a few years and was pleasantly surprised with the improvements. When we travel on 95 heading south again we will definitely stay here. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Having a restaurant so close to the hotel is a definite plus.

"convenient, great will motel"

Janice W, Mechanicsville, Virginia 03/07/2016

When traveling to Hilton Head SC, my husband & I stopped a night at the Best Western in Santee, SC. It is so convenient, right off I-95. There seem to be a few dinner spots close, even those we had already eaten dinner when we arrived. Check in was a breeze, we had a nice king room, near the end of the motel, but that was ok, it was on quiet. Walked to pool area after getting settled. Clean area, nice pool area. The continental breakfast the next am was very good, with lots of options. Again, I think it was the best place to stay in Santee

"More than expected"

fulllhouse, Eastman 01/07/2016

I did not expect an older hotel to be this updated and clean. Our family got two rooms and both were better than anticipated. We were on a fishing trip and fished all night. Showers were clean and beds were comfortable! I will definitely use this hotel again:)

"Great Stop in Santee"

Robert C, Hilton Head, United States 27/06/2016

For an overall "value", the BW Santee is an excellent location. Centrally located for golf, recreation, restaurants. Rooms were nicely furnished with direct tv service. Breakfast was well prepared and the entire facility was very clean.

"Very Nice"

William K, New Port Richey, FL, United States 27/06/2016

A nice place with good pool area, a very good buffet/ BBQ can be found near the entrance to the Santee Lake park (I am not sure of the exact name of the park). The joint is located in a very old general store.

"Great if you want a quiet, adult stay"

Debby L, Tampa, Florida, Usa 26/06/2016

We have stayed at this hotel several times, and there have been few, if any, children there. The hotel is all one story so you can park right outside your room. I would recommend not getting there "hangry", because your nearby restaurant choices are limited. There is a nice restaurant right next door, but it is only open from 5-9 pm and it's a little pricey and you might have to wait for a table. Otherwise, you've got Huddle House and Shoney's. Drive up the road a bit and you've got McDonald's and Cracker Barrel. The breakfast in the morning is nice, but it is very tight in that room, have to be very careful maneuvering around. Another thing I would like to mention in case it might be an issue for some people, the beds are pretty high off the floor! I'm 5'4" and almost feel like I need to make a running start to make it up onto the bed!

"Very nice stay!!"

Manymanytrips, Miami, Florida 26/06/2016

We really enjoyed our one night stay here! We arrived at the hotel at midnight and we were checked in very quickly by a nice gentleman. Room was clean and spacious. Breakfast was well stocked and the area was clean,the lady at the breakfast area greeted everyone who came in. I will stay again.

"Clean rooms/ Broken A/C"

James B, jacksonville, United States 25/06/2016

Rooms are clean and spacious. Breakfast was Good, but not enough space or big enough tables for families bigger than 4 people. Was a long night beds were comfortable but AC was broken. Pool was clean. Workout room was great and they have a laundry room which was good. Resturant we didn't eat at but had excellent reviews, but we had thai food across the street and sushi was excellent.

Will make another reservation when traveling north from Florida. and recommend it to others. We understand it is an older motel, but the Santee one has been delightful for seniors. Price is right, accommodations are clean. Staff is friendly and helpful.

"Santee, South Carolina Best Wesstern"

Roberta K, PALM COAST, United States 21/06/2016

This hotel was beautiful and comfortable. Room was large and well decorated. The breakfast choices as well as the room was well done. We enjoyed our stay here and will be sure to return for a longer stay.

"Rest for a weary traveler"

Abbe S, Tampa, United States 19/06/2016

After 10 hours of driving on a 22 hour trip, with intermittent restroom and snack breaks, the Best Western sign was a welcomed sight. Comfortable beds, clean room, free wi/fi, and complementary breakfast which we did not take advantage of due to an early departure hour. Would definitely choose a Best Western Plus hotel again.

"Late night stop on a roadtrip"

Marie G, New Mexico, United States 19/06/2016

This hotel seems to be very popular and very busy. However, the night clerk on duty when we checked in late, was very pleasant and attentive. He took extra care to make sure all guest reservations were handled properly and each guest was settled before moving on to the next guest. The entire staff was very pleasant and respectful. True southern hospitality here!. The rooms are clean and the beds are so comfortable we did not want get up! This hotel has only one floor, a huge plus for me! And you can park in front of your room, which made loading and unloading luggage very easy. The pool looked very refreshing, even though we did not have time to use it because we slept in, and there were even hammocks for guests hung under the trees for guests to use. I would definitely stay here again if we are in the area again.


Craig5651, Palm City, Florida 16/06/2016

Very nice place to stay. Clean and comfortable. Great restaurant next door Captains Quarters. Played Lake Marion which in adjacent to the motel. Good course. Everything was great. Heading from New Jersey back to Florida this is a great stop over

"stay at best western"

Robert L, linwood, United States 11/06/2016

the staff at this best western in santee south Carolina are very helpful with each patron that stays there. I highly recommend that if your in the area stop by and see what I'm saying. Clean and very nicely decorated in and out.

"good and clean"

Ginger K, Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina, United States 11/06/2016

this is the second time I have stayed there and I will come back next year. the staff is friendly, rooms are clean as is the entire property.,family friendly. Clean pool,free breakfast. Good value. It gives an aarp discount. I got 2 queen beds for 85$. There is a lot of restaurants on the exit or just walk next door to the captains quarters.

"Always fine"

User 11/06/2016

Santee represents our halfway to our home in FL. We have always stayed at this hotel and have never been disappointed. It is comfortable with an excellent restaurant on the property. We look forward to the stay. It is a respite from the 95 traffic.

"Great Place to stay"

Carol B, Boynton Beach, Florida, United States 10/06/2016

This Best Western Plus was easy to get to from I95. The room was clean, the decor very nice, the bathroom was clean--which is very important to me. The only thing was the size of the refrigerator, very small, and when traveling with a cooler, not everything could fit, especially with a tiny freezer.

"Overnight in Santee, SC"

TedandBarbara, Ellicott City, Maryland, United States 10/06/2016

Stayed here on way to Orlando, FL. Hotel was very clean and the morning breakfast is well presented and good. Since it was only one night, we did not use some of the amenities, such as the pool and exercise room. The room met all of our needs and served two tired travelers very well after being on the road for eight plus hours.

"Excellent Hotel"

User 08/06/2016

This is an excellent hotel. Located conveniently and adjacent to a wonderful restaurant. The hotel is clean and inviting with its porch furniture and other items. The breakfast area is large and inviting.

Linda S, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Santee Inn, responded to this review
Thank so much for the kind survey. It was our pleasure to have your as our guest and we hope you will come back. LindaSprings

"Favorite hotel on I 95"

DisneyDeb, Gettysburg 06/06/2016

This is our hotel of choice when we travel on I-95. The staff is wonderful very friendly and welcoming. Room is clean and smells fresh. Microwave refrigerator and free wifi in the rooms. Linens are nice and beds are comfy. Wonderful breakfast in a cute room. The pool is small but the Pool area is nice. We like parking in front of our room. Love the coffee and cookies in the lobby

"NC Retiree Satisfied"

Linda C, Nc 06/06/2016

This Best Western exceeded our expectations. We choose this hotel due to the reviews posted on TripAdvisor. These reviews are important to me when choosing a place to stay. This was a one level hotel that was beautiful inside and out. Older but updated and well maintained. Quick exit off I-95 and lots of eateries close by within walking distance. For the golf enthusiast, there was a beautiful golf course next door. The breakfast was outstanding. Real eggs and sausage! The coffee was excellent too! Bed sleep great with nice linens and pillows. Also enjoyed the nice treat of cookies in the evening! I would definitely stay here again. Keep up the good work Santee Best Western Plus!


Vincent G, BRADENTON, United States 06/06/2016

We traveled a little further than we wanted to just to stay at this motel. We love this motel and always get great service. The breakfast is always very good and has excellent food. The rooms are always neat and have everything we need for our stay.

"doesn't get any better!"

karen t, Toledo, Ohio 22/05/2016

sqeaky clean room. park right outside your door. wonderful breakfast. friendly staff. what more does a person need. oh yes, a nice restaurant for dinner just a short walk away. they have a very nice outdoor pool area. the santee best western has it all. one of the best breakfasts i've had in a long time. freshly cut fruit, eggs, sausages, biscuits and gravy, and the usual suspects found at hotel breakfast bars. the hot food was very hot and the cold food was nice and cold. the breakfast area was very clean, not always the case at a hotel breakfast area. we would absolutely stay there again.

"Comfortable and convenient"

User 21/05/2016

Driving to FL and stopped in Santee for overnight stay. Best western was perfect. Just off 95, had a restaurant with good food and it was clean and neat. Would definitely return again if I was passing by.

"Annual golf outing"

bobsaye, Mint Hill, North Carolina 21/05/2016

Every year our group brings 32 golfers to Asante. Usually we stay in on-site condos but the units we booked weren't finished being built so the golf course put most of us up in the local Best Western. It has been a while since I've stayed at a Best Western hotel not my first choice personally when travelling but the accomidations and amenities were very good to great. Beds were comfy, rooms and bathrooms were clean, tv was modern flat screen with satellite TV set-up. Everyone was friendly. Great stay....

""Good stop on the way south""

Ssr6sd, Parlin, New Jersey 20/05/2016

Excellent stop when traveling south. The accommodations are clean and comfortable and the staff helpful and courteous. The breakfast should make any traveler satisfied. The pool area is very attractive and a good place to enjoy breakfast. There are many restaurants in the area and one on site. We've been stopping at this motel for many years and have never been disappointed.

"Best Western vacation. Golfing with friends "

TodyBrown, Charlotte, North Carolina 19/05/2016

Golfing and hanging out with friends. We love this place. Always clean and the staff is awesome. The location is great for golfing or dinner Ten years we have stayed twice a year. Can't wait until our next trip in Sept. All of my friends truly enjoy this motel town and all the restaurants in the area


LaMae N, Manheim, Pennsylvania, United States 18/05/2016

This was a short stop over on our way from our home in Florida to our place in PA. I was extremely pleased with this hotel. The rooms were beautiful and clean. The staff were very helpful. There was an outdoor pool that was heated. A hammock and chairs made a nice reading or relaxing area. Would recommend this hotel to anyone and plan on staying again whenever we drive to Florida or back.

"Getting old"

dwb110, Roanoke, Virginia 16/05/2016

This is the third time we stayed here. The rooms seem to be getting pretty worn and very out of date. This is worse in the bath area. The carpet feels old and brittle. The sheeting on the bed was ridiculous and we froze all night. It was $50 cheaper than across the street though. We didn't even bother to try the breakfast which went down last visit and was over at 9:30 AM on a Sunday

"Florida Bound"

denisezucc1957, Salisbury, Maryland 15/05/2016

2nd time staying here on the way to Florida. Consistency is the name of the game. Comfortable bed, clean room, great shower pressure, delicious breakfast. I just wish the towels were a little softer. The pool was also open, which is a bonus! Will return every time. Just wish they still allowed pets..

"Nice and quiet"

djdrake12, Valdosta, Georgia 14/05/2016

From the outside, the hotel appears to be kind of cute. Inside you can tell it is old, but they really try to keep up the maintenance. I beds are actually really nice and given how it is just a little ways off of I-95, it is very quiet in the rooms. I would recommend this place if you need a stop over for the night.

"Great Find"

User 11/05/2016

Our first experience with BW+. Inn was newly refurbished and clean with large room, nice furniture, large flat screen TV, upholstered chairs, good reading lights, and REALLY COMFY beds. Have noted it for overnight stop north and south travel on I-95. We tried Hampton Inn and Suites at this location (sold out) but was very satisfied with our second choice.

"A surprising gem"

Cathy S, Shenandoah Junction, United States 11/05/2016

We've stayed at Best Western's before and been very happy with the properties and staff. The decor of this place just wowed me -- more than the run of the mill hotel decor. And the staff were friendly and funny, too, very welcoming. It was a brief stay on our way from one place to another, but became a wonderful part of our overall trip. The restaurant was fun, and the food was delicious. Breakfast was really good, too.

"Good Value"

lvskns, Tampa, Florida 09/05/2016

While this is your typical Best Western, it was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. Bathroom is small and older, but for a night or two, it's doable.Free wifi and breakfast make this a great value for the money.

"Santee Best Western"

Michael O, west palm beach, United States 09/05/2016

Very worthwhile hotel. Well maintained infrastructure and friendly atmosphere with a very helpful staff.Very good location and many local attractions makes this a very high value place to stay. Highly recommend this hotel. Best value around.

"Great place to stay"

Lois B, Randolph 07/05/2016

Excellent.....would definitely stay here again. Breakfast was awesome also. Very pleasant staff and nice, clean comfortable rooms. Glad we choose this location as a stop on our trip to Florida. Next time would like to try using the pool. Looked very inviting.

"Best Best Western"

Kenneth M, southampton, United States 03/05/2016

Best location off I95, Best Staff at Hotel, Best Value for the $$$$.Great Restaurant next Door [Fisherman's Quarters]Very good options for breakfast [has a dash&go at 5am], good for Golfers playing next door. The GYM is very good for those who eat too much !!!!

"New pillowtop beds"

User 30/04/2016

A little noisey in the back, all else was excellent. New pillow top beds. Rugs older but ok, bathroom fine, TV service fine. Internet took time to connect. Normally easy for me. Thats it. two hundred words? I have nothing else to say, come on please.

"Couldn't ask for anything better at this stop!"

User 29/04/2016

Hotel was convenient, clean, comfortable, efficient and great price. Nice pool, wonderful breakfast and across the street was an excellent Thai restaurant! Had yummy cookies and coffee in the lobby too.

"Decent place to stay"

mike_jarman2002, Wake Forest, NC 28/04/2016

The continental breakfast was very good, the rooms were clean, the staff was friendly. The bed, however was very uncomfortable. We were there for 3 nights and that is too long for this place. Not much to do around Santee unless you golf or fish.

"Great experience"

Lynn A, Largo, FL, United States 26/04/2016

Love this hotel. We like the ambience and the staff was very polite. The room was great and everything worked well. I would recommend anyone traveling up and down the I95 corridor to stop in and enjoy a relaxing stay. I have stayed here before and was satisfied enough to stay here on this trip.

"overnight on way north"

Lucia Dougan K, Horsham 26/04/2016

We have had good experiences with Best Western for the most part. It is a good clean hotel at a good price. Great breakfast. Good internet. Pleasant, helpful staff. Comfortable beds. This hotel is all on the ground level so it is easy in and out. Very enjoyable stay.

"Nice Stay"

Melissa W, New York 21/04/2016

One night stay at this motel on way to Florida in late March. Convenient location off I-95. Plenty of restaurants nearby. Comfortable king room. Very impressed with the cleanliness. Bathroom was small as noted in other reviews, but vanity and sink were located outside of bath, so it wasn't really an issue. Very friendly and quick check-in. Good hot breakfast with many choices. We like the old park at your room door motels. Too many these days are not as clean as this one. Glad we took a chance. Will definitely plan to stay again on our next trip south.

"Good place to stay"

User 20/04/2016

The rooms were very clean. The staff was accommodating and breakfast was plentiful and free. There is a microwave and refrigerator in the room. It was a great central locale to visit other areas of South Carolina and convenient to other resort areas but not too expensive.

"Great stay"

User 18/04/2016

The staff was helpful. The hotel is great. The breakfast was really good and always full. The staff ensure the items were hot and fresh. The only cplaint is that some of the older guests were leaving very early and alarming their cars every time they put an item in it and went to retrieve something else. Not the hotel's fault but it made it made for an really early wake up call.

"Great for an overnigt"

kjufbg, Morristown, New Jersey 16/04/2016

Recommended by a friend to come here. Stayed here twice for an overnight with family and it was great! Just what you need when stopping during a road trip. The continental breakfast was great as well! Will definitely come back! Great price too!

"Santee does it Again!"

Robert G, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada 12/04/2016

This hotel is everything it should be. Informed caring staff, great rooms and a wonderful breakfast. We were again very impressed with Santee BW. The rooms are very comfortable and all amenties were in working order.

"Clean and Comfortable"


We stopped in on the way to Florida. Our reservation was handled efficiently and quickly. The staff was friendly. The Inn is clean and quaint. It is a park in front of your room property. We felt safe. The beds are comfortable and the room was clean. The breakfast bar was good. A definite stop back place!

"Happy in Santee"

Charles N, Brick NJ, United States 06/04/2016

This hotel had been recommended by a friend several years ago. Santee fits our travels to and from our home in Florida and each time we visit it seems to get better with age. There is always a feeling of freshness relaxation and caring. We have told several of our friends and they have also stopped there. We will be there in October on our way south.

"Always a pleasure"

Vtraveler90, Newport News, VA 01/04/2016

A very nice Inn. Have stayed here multiple times and it never disappoints (except they do not have MSNBC on the Direct TV. Missed Morning Joe. Nice breakfast and Captains Quarters restaurant is first class.

"First class all the way!"

Cratloe95, BIRMINGHAM, NJ 29/03/2016

Stayed here on latest trip to Florida and was extremely pleased with this property. Staff were very pleasant, helpful and courteous. Room was exceptionally clean, spacious and comfortable. Very tastefully decorated with one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept on in a hotel. Has an on site restaurant. A free full complimentary breakfast is available, with hot and cold entrees. Will definitely stay here again.

"Worth the Rt95 stop"

AnitainNJ, Hunterdon, NJ 27/03/2016

An excellent little find on our way to Florida. Rooms are small and you can't change more than your mind in the bathroom, but the place was clean and a short stop from the highway. Santee is a small town with only a few restaurants in the area, but enough to make a dinner choice of Mexican, Thai and American. We made the short walk to Captains Table and the food was really good, but not cheap. The breakfast was really a nice surprise. Eggs, waffles, biscuits gravy and grits. Cereal muffins, bagels juice and coffee. Will stop here again if we make another trip.


BobCMiddletown, Middletown 27/03/2016

The staff at the hotel are very nice. That said the hotel is very clean and has a nice pool. The only problem was that all the rooms are located on ground level so it's noisy. People driving up to park and the lights come right through the curtains. Also,people like to gather outside the smoke free rooms at late hours and talk. The acoustics aren't great. I checked out at midnight because it was to noisy and drive all night to panama City Florida. Would not stay here again.

"Great customer service"

Terry J, Greenville, United States 18/03/2016

Hotel staff was professional and customer service oriented ,advised me of what services they provided , eager to help and very knowledgeable of the area when I needed to locate a hardware store, gave me exact directions to get there

"Highly recommended motel"

MAB-PA, Pipersville, Pennsylvania 16/03/2016

We stopped here both on our way to Florida and back home . It is a very clean and attractive motel convenient to I95. We don't usually like to stop at motels where you park your car right at your door but we stopped here because of the good reviews we read . The rooms were spacious, nicely furnished and exceptionally clean .They had a good breakfast with many selections but the room was quite crowded .

"Don't judge a book by is cover"

MikeWork, Columbia, Maryland 13/03/2016

This property is a real motor hotel (motel for you under 40). We have stayed here a couple of times and have always been impressed by the cleanliness of the room and the entire property. Breakfast is always tasty and fresh.

"A nice surprise on our way to Florida"

User 12/03/2016

We desided to stay here on our way to Florida..what a nice surprise..clean comfortable and a great value..We were hungry and got online and ended up at the most amazing place to eat..the Lonestar BBQ..a little hesitant when we pulled in but wow! The food..southern cooking..was wonderful..I want to go back just for that! A quaint little place not far from a very nice hotel!

"Handicap accommodation #1"

Denise M, Va beach, United States 12/03/2016

From start to finish this was one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. The handicap room and breakfast were outstanding. I am ab above knee amputee and found this room to be excellent to meet my needs.

"A definite "Plus""

User 10/03/2016

Stopped on way to Florida. Selected this place because of T.A. reviews.This is an excellent overnight stop. Desk personnel were very friendly and helpful. You can park right outside the door to your room. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Amenities include a m'wave, fridge and free wifi. There is a heated pool and workout center. (The pool will be drained and cleaned shortly in preparation for summer.) There are restaurants within easy walking distance. The only negative was a couldn't find a soda machine. Definitely would stay here again on future trips.

"Clean,comfortable, excellent breakfast."

Pamela K, Ocean View, Delaware, United States 07/03/2016

We requested a room in the back and quiet. Exceptionally clean room, very comfortable beds and great lighting. We were very impressed by the full breakfast offered. Will surely stay here again on our way to Florida.

"Excellent all around"

Pamela K, Ocean View, Delaware, United States 07/03/2016

Very clean, and well lit. Quiet and felt safe. Beds were very comfortable. Pillow Top mattress. Breakfast was complete. Many items. Sausage, eggs, biscuits, potatoes, waffles. Fruit, many beverage selections, cereal, bagels. You will not go away hungry. Will surely stay here again on way to Florida.

"No complaints"

Kevin L, Chapel Hill, NC, United States 06/03/2016

Helpful staff. Clean rooms. Typical layout. In my opinion, the majority of hotels chains that I use up & down the east coast within this price range of $150 a night or under, need to renovate their bathrooms more often.

"Very Nice Motel"

KayakBlue, New Bern, North Carolina 04/03/2016

We stopped there on our way back from Florida. We usually stop at Santee but had never stayed at Best Western. The facility is very nice, well maintained and the staff is friendly and efficient. The price is reasonable and includes a hot breakfast with waffles, eggs and meats. The pool is heated and very clean. We will stop there again on our next trip.

"Beautiful Room, Good Price"

Betty G, Falls Church, Virginia 03/03/2016

The minute we stepped foot in the door we were greeted by a friendly, pleasant front desk clerk, our check-in was quick. Our room was very nice, clean and supplied with all we needed. The bed was very comfortable not much outside noise, got a good nights sleep. This was a handicapped room which had a two different chairs provided for the shower. Breakfast was very busy the next morning, but since one of us was handicapped we were sent to the business center so we could have a seat, really nice people. We will certainly return to this hotel.

"Great Place to stop"

Michael R, Elmira, New York, Usa 02/03/2016

We always stop here on the way to florida. It is a very convenient exit from Rt95 and back on. The rooms are always clean and neat. The Motel has many extras and serves a free breakfast that is properly presented and gets you ready for the day. We have always had the best of luck dealing with the employees, who are pleasant and knowledgable about what they are doing. there has never been any problems and we have stayed several time. the price is very reasonable and the entire property is well cared for. I wish I could say the same for the restaurant next door. We have always ate there and the meals were good. It was convenient as they share a parking lot with the motel. This year we were seated next to 8 loud obnoxious golfers who did nothing but yell and scream for the entire meal. Nobody said a wood to them. This is an upscale and fairly expensive rest. that has always been good but We go to Mcdonald's next year

"santee south carolina"

Robert G, santee, United States 26/02/2016

Could not have been nice, a clear and well run Best Western. The staff was particularly helpful when we left our computer in the room after check out. They retrieved it for us and shipped it next day to our Florida location.

"A good place to stay"

User 24/02/2016

We spent the night here and were pleased with the room. It was fresh, clean, well appointed and well taken care of and provided a very restful night's sleep. The breakfast buffet was just what we needed to get back on our trip.

"Best Place in Santee, SC"

Susan A, Kill Devil Hills, United States 24/02/2016

My family has staying in this hotel for close to 25 years on our trips between the Outer Banks of North Carolina and Ormond Beach Florida. We never even consider another location. The hotel is beautifully maintained, the grounds are landscaped nicely, the area is safe and secure, the rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable and the pool is wonderful. The proximity to the interstate, gas stations and restaurants is perfect and the check in and out times are very convenient. The room rates are excellent and you get much more than what you pay for, especially considering other options in the area. The staff is friendly and professional and the breakfast is excellent. You should stay here.

"Excellent hotel"

User 24/02/2016

I usually stay at marriott hotels but since there was not one in the area I chose this hotel based on tripadvisor reviews and it was great. Sparkling clean, fresh smelling, and lovely. All rooms on first floor and newly furnished very pretty and comfortable. Several small outdoor tables and chairs around perimeter of the Hotel. Though it was not pool weather, the pool and pool area was well maintained and crystal clear water. The lobby and breakfast room are very pretty and breakfast was fresh and good. Walking distance to a few restaurants but Captains quarters next door was very good. The staff is pleasant and helpful. As a new yorker a really nice hotel like this for under $100 was a pleasure. We will recommend this hotel to others.

"For a decent half way stop:"

User 22/02/2016

Best Westerns are not my usual preference, but after examining many of the positive reviews and opinions put forth, I decided to give this particular one a try. The price of the room came to $93 after taxes which I would state was a fair value. All the rooms are at ground level and offer parking right outside the door. While traveling in luggage overload mode, knowing that my vehicle is within eye and earshot is reassuring to me. The woman at the receptionist desk was polite and informative. The room was freshly cleaned. The mattress was firm (which I happen to like). The bedding and sheets were crisply made up. I was seeking a hot shower and good night's rest, and this place delivered. One minus: breakfast is not put out until 7am sharp. Left standing outside, several of my fellow I-95 travelers were in agreement that getting underway just a half hour sooner would have made this stopover a bit nicer.

Linda S, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Santee Inn, responded to this review
Im glad you enjoyed your stay here at the Best Western but Im not sure why you thought the breakfast was at 7am. Our doors open for breakfast at 6:00am until 9:30am. I do apologize for the inconvenience and we hope you come and stay with us again Linda Springs

"BWI Santee SC"

User 22/02/2016

The Best Western Santee SC is easily reached from I95 with restaurants next door. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are well kept with a comfortable bed (we had a king bed) and clean bath room. The complimentary breakfast had a wide choice of food to choose from including cold cereals, waffles, eggs, grits, juices, coffee, and pastries. The outdoor pool was open even though we visited in February. The WiFi was easily accessed and provided high speed internet access. The only negative was that all the rooms open to the parking lot not to an interior corridor.

"Warm Welcome"

sabhoy, Sewell, NJ 21/02/2016

We had a lovely room here after a nearby hotel was sold out. Same amenities...pool,breakfast,etc. And a much more reasonable price. We will stay here again. We walked next door to Captain's Quarters for dinner. The next morning the complimentary breakfast was delicious and gave us a great start for our continued drive to Florida.

"Not as good as the reviews state, keep looking!!!!"

Jon W, Morristown, New Jersey 16/02/2016

Reading all of the great reviews on here led me to this hotel. Let me just say that everyone else must be NUTS!!!!! This should not be rated 4+.... It is everything I would expect from an average, dirty, slightly run-down, motel. A solid 2.5 is more like it. Upon check in, I had to "air" the room out for about 10 minutes because it smelled strongly like a nursing home. The mattress was awful (feel every little movement) and the bedding made me itch as it was very rough. There was even a leather recliner in the room, never saw that before (slightly weird). We were counting the minutes until checkout. Quality of sleep overall here was dismal. I paid $85 on a Saturday night, which I though was decent at the time, but looking back I would have rather paid more for something nicer. In fact, I feel you could even pay less at a roach motel because this place is not even marginally better. Free breakfast and very nice staff were the only pros to this place. Do yourself a big favor and drive a little further. Booking this was a mistake.

"Great for kids"

User 10/02/2016

Rooms were great/clean, Breakfast was awesome. When traveling from Miami to Maryland and vice versa, it's a perfect place to stop. The pool is clean and in good shape, there are a bunch of restaurants near by, and the value was great.

"Overnight stop off I-95 in SC"

DianeForer, Seminole, Florida 09/02/2016

This Best Western was very clean and well maintained. Check in was easy. We had no reservation. Comfortable bed and pillows. Bathroom was small and slightly dated but very clean, plenty of towels. Amenities- coffee maker, microwave, refrigerator, tv, free wifi, free breakfast, newspaper, ironing board, hair dryer. A restaurant is right next door. A small fitness room was also available and an outdoor pool. All units on first floor with parking in front of unit. Polite desk clerks. Overall a good experience.

Great place to stay, there are other hotels in the area, but you get what you pay for Hot water heater worked but this is crazy you have to have 200 minimum Characters..great,great,great,great great,great,great

"Good Rest Stop"

James K, Delaware, United States 06/02/2016

This hotel is at the mid point of our dirve to Fla. We stayed both to Fl and from Fl 2 months later. Both stays were excellent. Quick check in, no hassles, clean room, everything worked and breakfast was great. All at a reasonable price. Keep it up!

"Walk to a great restaurant for dinner"

Maxine F, Grimstead, Virginia 05/02/2016

This hotel was the cleanest hotel we stayed in during our 17 day trip. The check in staff was very efficient. All of the rooms are on the first floor and you can park right at the door to your room. It was nicely furnished, had a microwave and refrigerator and very comfortable beds. Also has a very nice restaurant on the grounds that you can walk to.

"Excellent hotel"

Keith M, Cannifton 31/01/2016

Breakfast excellent but not much for vegans. Right next to Lake Marion Golf Course. Dated in some ways, but very nicely furnished. Could use a footstool. Terrific restaurant on the grounds, great seafood meals.

"Nice stopover on our trip"

EoCM, Västerås 24/01/2016

The hotel is situated quite near the I95 so it was easy to find, all the staff was really friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean, nice and comfy. Breakfast was included and was quite sufficient for our needs. The staff recommended the Captains Quarters restaurant that was adjacent to the hotel for dinner and we can promise that this was a really good recommendation. Don't miss it if you stay here.

"Reasonable $ hotel"

Carla C, lecanto, United States 24/01/2016

Stayed here three times in the last year. Rooms are clean and refrigerator, microwave available, location is convenient to I-95. Several very good restaurant choices are available. At least two that are in walking distance.

"Great location off I-95"

rshimony, New Jersey 23/01/2016

Just about ha;f way from NY/NJ area and south Florida. Very pleasant staff, some better-than -average restaurants near the motel. Very pleasant and helpful staff. Rooms are neat, comfortable, and clean.

"good value"

963elijahl, Randallstown, Maryland 20/01/2016

rooms are a nice size clean but bath rooms are a little small, nice beds etc the grounds are well kept!! maids are very helpful quick access to 95 ! you can park just out side your no steps to go up. good price

"Overnight halfway home"

Joseph H, Vienna, VA, United States 19/01/2016

Returning from Florida, Santee is a good halfway location to my home in Virginia. This hotel has very convenient parking at the door and a very good restaurant and shopping nearby. The hotel is well maintained and is usually available at a reasonable price. I have stayed there a number of times and have not had any complaints.

"Disappointing response !!!"

Toothsc, Greenville, South Carolina 17/01/2016

This is a review for the stay I could not make. While a group of us have enjoyed our stay here for a local event each March for the past 3 years, the female manager made it abundantly clear recently that our group would not be welcome again this year. I believe it stems from a bad decision she made last year during our stay to clean the carpets in 4 (of our 16 total) rooms on the same day they were to be used. She tried to dry the carpets prior to their arrival around 5 PM, by cranking the heat up which resulted in rooms with temperatures in the upper 90s – and the carpets were still leaching water when stepped upon. Her husband (co-manager) recognized how bad this was and ‘comped' the room for those four members of our group. This was the culmination of a bad visit (unlike the prior 2 years) and was not the only problem. They relied on an employee (who is no longer with them) to handle our reservations and she placed us in rooms that were not as requested. Interestingly, another employee who made the reservations the prior year commented that she knew the reservations were not as we wanted. We worked through those issues and were able to more or less resolve the problems and I wrote a nice review – particularly after the husband co-manager corrected the wet carpet problem. He also told me to contact him next year (this year now) and he would assure that our reservations would be as we desired. Well, after 3 weeks of attempting to contact him and leaving messages for call backs, I was directed to his wife. She appeared to know who I was and why I was calling. When I asked if we could again reserve the rooms, she quickly said the rate had increased (10+%) and we could not reserve several of the rooms on that side, as we had in the past, because they are now ‘special' rooms. We come from all across the state and it is important that we are placed in the rooms in the back portion of the property adjacent to a grassy area, so we can set up chairs and visit. I don't know what could be any more ‘special' than a group wanting to reserve a specific block of 18+ rooms for a weekend---the same group and same weekend from the previous 3 years. Although it has not been a problem the prior three years, it is now a problem. When I inquired about these changes her response was, “things change”. I asked if it was something we had done in the past and she said it was not but that ‘things change'. I believe she was upset that her husband ‘comped' the rooms last year and she decided to punish us. I asked if she could tell me who the owners are and she refused saying they would say the same thing. We made a trip to Santee and have located another motel that is happy to have 18-20 rooms taken for the weekend. We will be there this year instead of celebrating our 4th year at the Best Western – thanks to Mrs. Springs and her non-customer oriented approach.

"First time - will stay again"

User 17/01/2016

This was our first time trying this motel for an overnight stay travelling to Orlando. I can only re-enforce the other positive reviews - just as advertised. Clean, quiet, well managed, great breakfast.

"Don't hesitate"

albinfla, KISSIMMEE, Florida 15/01/2016

There are lots on motels in Santee. This one is a winner. EZ off 95 and very clean. Stayed there on way to Florida. Not overly priced. Lots of restaurants nearby. Free breakfast . You won't be disappointed

"Pitstop Stay"

User 14/01/2016

Santee is the halfway mark on my way from FL to VA and I needed place to sleep and recharge. BW was great. All one story rooms which eliminated noise. The hotel is just off the I95 for just down far enough to avoid traffic noise. Plenty of places to eat & gas up. Service was nice, breakfast hit the spot and room was clean. Will make this the place to stop for next trip to VA.

"Great location"

elaine299, pennsylvania 14/01/2016

Another good Best Western. The room was very clean, the beds comfortable. It has a great restaurant right in the parking lot. Breakfast was standard but good. Will stay here again. The only complaint the person on duty that night just handed us our key, never gave us the wifi password and was not unpleasant but was not friendly either.

"Another Great Trip"

envirotech, philadelphia 12/01/2016

Never a disappointment. Bedding was comfortable and the room was clean. Parking at the door of every unit makes handicap access easy. The quick breakfast offered in the morning is good with more than adequate offerings for everyone.

"Great room for a great price."

Lea R, Clarkton, NC 11/01/2016

We have been staying at this same hotel for the last three years when we visit for the Grand American Coon Hunt in Orangeburg, SC. This is a great room for a great price. Rooms are always clean and the staff is very curtious. It's good to know that you can still get a good clean room for a great rate. Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone passing through.

"Highly Recommended!"

Gary D S, Homosassa, United States 09/01/2016

We stayed at this Santee, S.C. Best Western one other time and wanted to stay there again because the room was super clean, the bed was very comfortable, and the staff was very nice. Our experience this time was no different! We always enjoy our stays at Best Westerns. We are never disappointed. There is a restaurant in the parking lot of the hotel (The Captains Quarters), that is very nice.

"Very comfortable stay"

User 06/01/2016

Room was near the back of the property and across from a golf course so very quiet. A short drive took us to a nearby state park where we enjoyed a short hike to unwind from a long drive. Room was spacious and very clean. Breakfast contained a variety of hot food options as well as the standard cereals and breakfast breads. Would definitely stay here again.

"A Very good Choice!!!"

Richard S, Livingston nj 05/01/2016

We have no complaints with this old motel. It has been updated. The location near I 95 and across the street from gas stations, a convenience store and the best restaurant in the area; the Thai restaurant make this a solid choice. It is nice that you can park your car in front of your room and enter it directly. It certainly is a cut below those motels that were built in the last 10 years. Also the outdoor pool is very nice. We will probably stay here again.

"Nicely renovated hotel"

42golf56_9, Coatesville, Pennsylvania 05/01/2016

These rooms are ground floor entry pull in parking, i.e. a real motor inn, and so your bags pull into the room easily, no lifting. All the amenities worked and the beds were comfy. Since it is a renovation, the bathroom area is tight, it probably could not be reconfigured. Breakfast had a bigger size dining room and good variety of hot and cold items. A separate building houses the 3 smoking rooms and the pet owners' rooms with a lawn behind. The pool looked clean, big, and inviting even though it was winter. There is nice outside landscaping and a plantation like feel about the place. Of course we will be back.

"Great Help"

Paul M, Methuen, MA, United States 05/01/2016

I booked on-line and made an error. I booked the day before I planned on getting there. They corrected my error, to my advantage, with a big smile on their face. They were wonderful especially the young lady at the desk. She handled the problem professionally and is a credit to the Best Western PLUS Santeee Inn.

"Great as Always"

FurlongBiagi, Bronxville, New York 05/01/2016

So glad we booked in advance at this ever popular stop just off I 95. When we arrived, the place was sold out. Great, clean rooms and the most wonderful mattresses. Really nice staff and terrific restaurant, Captain's Table, adjacent.

"Nice hotel on the way to Florida or return"

EAG57, Dover, Delaware 04/01/2016

Friendly staff, clean room, includes good breakfast with stay, Rooms are comfortable and large. Easy access in and out of room. Restaurant on same property offers very good food and service which is a benefit to weary travelers staying at this site

"Excellent Stay"

User 04/01/2016

Have been staying here each year for the last 15 years for New Years. Expectations are high and our Family has never been disappointed. Complimentary breakfast is more than expected as while the offerings are limited, it provides a complete breakfast with eggs, potatoes, sausage, waffles, cereal, oatmeal, bagels, toast, pastry, etc...

"Nice and budget-friendly!"

Hippocampus12, Ashburn, Virginia 03/01/2016

The hotel is strategically located next to I-95, which makes it perfect for overnight stop from/to Florida. The room was very clean and everything was good, we enjoyed our quick stay. Complimentary breakfast was included, and it was quite hearty - I especially appreciated freshly made scrambled eggs and fruits.


utoometoo, Harrisburg, PA 03/01/2016

Was doubtful about staying at a Best Western due to past experiences but this property was very nicely decorated inside and out. Pleasant staff. Clean and very well maintained. Room was clean and nicely furnished. Breakfast was good but maybe could use some fresh fruit. No complaints.

"Good location and clean"

John L, Nutley, United States 03/01/2016

Stayed here a few times on our way to Fla from NJ. Great location and restaurants in area; clean and neat rooms; helpful staff. We know we will have a good stay and depend upon this BW ever since we found out about it from friends. Highly recommended.

"Wonderful Stay After Being on the Road all Day"

Nancy K, Plymouth 02/01/2016

Love this hotel. All rooms are on one level with parking in front of your room. Rooms are very clean with great beds. We have stayed numerous times here because we know what we are going to get for our money. They are right off the highway but it is a quiet area with lovely grounds. We arrange our drive so that we can make this our stop for the night on our way to Florida. Excellent breakfast. Cant say a thing bad about this place. Must add they have a very friendly staff.

"Disappointing stay -- how is this a PLUS?"

snovak52, New Bern, North Carolina 30/12/2015

Very disappointed with our stay here. We had stayed at a Best Western in Venice, FL and were extremely impressed. While the Santee BW is a charming, throwback style ground-level motel with a lovely pool, the hotel is in desperate need of some updating and attention to detail with respect to cleanliness, etc. Our room was pleasantly decorated yet had a strong smell of bleach. I'm not sure where that was coming from because the bathroom actually had shower tile that needed cleaning. Additionally, the lighting in the bathroom was so inadequate that one could barely see while in the shower. I'm uncertain how this location qualifies as a BW PLUS. At any rate, I would not stop here again on my way to/from Florida. While it is certainly good enough, I don't think that is the standard one should aim for.

"Excellent value, Great quality"

Frank Mr S, Doylestown, United States 29/12/2015

This is a very nice place to stay. I recommend it highly. Bed was very comfortable. Free breakfast seals the deal. All rooms are at ground level so you park directly outside your room. Staff was very helpful and pleasant.

"Good Experience"

Richard B, Fort Myers, United States 28/12/2015

Room was large and clean. Very good restaurant right next door. It was a short walk from the room and reasonably priced. We left too early for the breakfast but they let us in to get coffee to go which was very good.


Marie L, Port Orange FL, United States 28/12/2015

This hotel is all on one floor. You have parking in front of your door. This hotel has one of the most beautiful dining rooms for breakfast... They have a very large selection including a hot breakfast if you prefer. They have a restaurant called "The Captains Quarters" which serves seafood, steaks and you can even get hamburgers and wings. They also have a lounge where you can get a cocktail.

"Santee Inn Best Western Motel"

CarlSlye, Valdosta, Georgia 27/12/2015

Clean and comfortable. The motel is located next to the Interstate. Easy on and off. The room was quiet. Motel has swimming pool, but it was to cold to swim. Laundry facilities on premises. Breakfast served at the motel. Their are a large number of restaurants within walking distance.

"Nice Overnight Stop"


I've stayed here often on trips up/dwn east coast. Best value for the money. Staff is excellent, the breakfast is good and always hot. Very easy to find, right of I95 and quick return when leaving. Good selection of places to eat close by.

"Will stop again!"

Madi Y, Oxford, Maryland 23/12/2015

This hotel is clean, our room was large and the included breakfast was a nice start to our day. The desk staff are friendly and Mary was really nice, explaining where we should park because we are pulling a small trailered dinghy. We will stop here again on our trip North in April. Also there is a nice restaurant within walking distance, Captains Quarters.

"Affordable gem"

Debbie M, Beltsville 21/12/2015

Renovated rooms, lovely southern charm to common areas, and much cheaper than other chain hotels. Very comfortable. Doors do open to the outdoors (motel style) but allows you to park right outside your room and lessens noise. Very courteous staff. Much more value for your $ than other options nearby.

"Excellent motel for price"

kewo13, Portland, Maine 19/12/2015

This is a very clean, we'll run motel with a very nice room design. Excellent buffet breakfast. Conveniently right off Interstate 95. Prices when we stayed were one of the lowest in the area. Nice seafood restaurant, the Captains Quarters, next door.

"Dated, but clean, quiet and comfortable and very helpful staff, great breakfast"

"It's OK, but not "Plus""

User 14/12/2015

We spent the night at this Best Western as a stopover while driving between southern Florida and southeast Pennsylvania. We were simply underwhelmed with the hotel. The room was clean, but the overall feel was the room was due for a renovation. The bed was comfortable but the pillows were little squares that looked more like over-sized after-dinner mints than pillows. There was no desk to work at, only a table, with no outlets nearby and an ill-matched chair. One plus was the WiFi - it supports both 2.8 GHz and 5 GHz (dual-band) access. On the other hand, the TV was a minus. since when does any motel, hotel, residence, or whatever not have HGTV in their lineup? Actually, we can survive without a nightly dose of House Hunters, but the channel offerings were amazingly limited. It's not that we came to watch a lot of TV, but the small list was another symptom of "it's OK, but it's not 'plus'". Breakfast was, again, just OK. And that's really the summary of the experience: OK but not plus. Unfortunately, the bill was "plus". Next time we come through the area, we'll study our options far more closely.

"Nice, comfortable overnight stay"

User 12/12/2015

We were very pleasantly surprised with this hotel. We weren't expecting much for the price but we ended up having a very nice, comfortable overnight stay in a comfortable, clean room. Everything was well maintained, clean, and the staff was friendly. Some positives: you park at your door, large tv in the room, super comfy pillows, quiet, close to several restaurants, and nice powerful shower heads (that matters to some people like me!). Negatives: bathroom could use some updating but it was still very clean. Overall, great stay, we would stay again for sure.


Linda G, lynchburg, United States 09/12/2015

staff was cheerful and glad to assist in any way possible when asked, and also checked to be sure things were ok. with our 18 month old grandson with us, he left more food on the floor than he ate, and the lady taking care of the breakfast bar took care of it and was admiring him. tipped for the extra work , was on the higher end price wise, but worth it.

"Very good value for your dollar!"

ChantalYolande, Ottawa, Canada 06/12/2015

The hotel looks to be a refurbished motor court with doors direct to the outside.-- your parking is literally at your door. No interior hallways here. If you need ice, you got to go outside. The staff is friendly and efficient, and check-in was quick. in fact, our remote control was not programmed so I called the front desk and the lady immediately offered to bring one to our room.For it's age, this Best Western holds up reasonably well. The room was clean, quiet with a mini-fridge, microwave and small coffeemaker. Regular coffee and tea available. The in-room wi-fi is free and worked fine. The beds were very comfortable. The bath set-up was typical of old hotels -- sink and mirror adjacent to a separate toilet and bath/shower -- though it's an older bathroom an attempt as a makeover was made with little success. Breakfast was good and overall it is a good deal. I just wish that the renovations would have been more consistent.

"Good Recomendation"

James K, Delaware, United States 03/12/2015

This stop was recommended to us and it did not disappoint. Clean room, internet worked, and a good breakfast. Good choice for our one night stop on our trip. We will recommend to others and will certainly not hesitate to stay here in the future.

"Fantastic Overnight Stay "

Shuttle321, Melbourne, Florida 02/12/2015

My wife & I were travelling to Chapel Hill for Thanksgiving. We usually stop in Santee as our overnight way station. Based on some Trip Advisor reviews we decided to stay at the Best Western this time as it was considerably less expensive than the competition. And you know was FANTASTIC! Immaculately clean, well maintained, spacios, attentive staff, solid complementary breakfast. Thank you to the previous Trip Advisor Honest reviewers who persuaded us to stay there. And thank you to the Best Western, Santee, S.C. for a great night's stay.

"An Overnight Stay"

Jonathan A, Bethesda, Maryland 01/12/2015

This was a short stay after a long day on the road -- a one-night layover, en route to a Thanksgiving family reunion. This exit (#98) is always busy, so you don't get the feeling of being in a remote spot off I-95. The hotel looks to be a refurbished motor court with doors direct to the outside.-- your parking is literally at your door. No interior hallways here. The staff was friendly and efficient, and check-in was quick. For it's age, this Best Western holds up well. The room was clean, quiet and nicely appointed with a mini-fridge, microwave and small coffeemaker. Regular and decaf coffee and caffeinated tea (bring your own decaf) were available. The in-room wi-fi is free and worked fine. My brother and I shared Rm 132A -- a double bed room (queens) for under $80 a night (pre-tax). The beds were very comfortable. The bath set-up was typical of older hotels -- sink and mirror adjacent to a separate toilet and bath/shower -- though it's an older bathroom it's received a recent makeover, and the water pressure was good. We didn't eat there, so can't speak to the free breakfast that came with the room, but the breakfast set-up looked familiar. All in all, a fair value and easy-on-off stop for motorists who want to get off I-95. I'm not normally a big fan of Best Westerns, but I would stay here again, and would recommend it to others as a safe, comfortable hotel that's a step above the two-stars. NOTE: This review is based on my independent opinions and observations. I have NO connection to Best Western or any of its franchisees. I received NO compensation for this posting.

"Second choice, first rate hotel"

DoingFrancy, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 30/11/2015

After stopping at another hotel in Santee that didn't stand up to its rating, we decided to try this location. So glad that we did. The office was clean and up-to-date. The check-in was flawless, and the room was delightful after a day's long drive. We have no need to stop anywhere else!

"A good place to stay"

thebickersens, the villages 30/11/2015

The hotel was clean and staff friendly and efficient. We stayed there last year and again this year. The rooms were very clean and the breakfast was quite tasty. We ate dinner at The Captain's Quarters which is within walking distance, the food was very good.

"Great place!!!"

Cassjede, Richmond, Virginia 29/11/2015

Great hotel! Convenient to I 95 and halfway home for us returning north from Daytona Beach. We stayed here based on the reviews and we were not disappointed. The room was excellent, clean, great flat screen. The staff polite and the Captains Quarters Restaurant on site was excellent!

"We enjoyed Everything!! "

Regina R, Santee, South Carolina 29/11/2015

My parents & I had to stay here for a few nights until our apartment was ready & we really enjoyed Everything!!! The housekeepers were extremely friendly which was very warming. We enjoyed having waffles for breakfast every morning & Annie that works in the breakfast area is really sweet.. The place is very clean & beds are extremely comfortable... Thanks Best Western Plus... ??

"BW Plus minus"

jvdNewYork, new york 27/11/2015

This hotel has a convenient location right off 95. Restaurant on site. Nice property and pool area. The room is comfortable, good shower but PLUS not really. I have stayed in several Best Western Plus this one is just a regular Best Western Property. Frayed towels the bare essentials of soap and shampoo. Room was clean and had a frig and micro. I expected a little more from a Plus otherwise it was just fine.


Michele M, Point Pleasant Beach, New Jersey 26/11/2015

We were on the road for 11 hours and this Best Western was recommended by a friend. We couldn't have been happier with the accommodations. Exceptionally clean and comfortable. Breakfast was amazing with a wide choice of selections.

"Comfortable Surprise"

HappyOakdale_NY, Ormond Beach 24/11/2015

We were so pleased that there was a restaurant on the same property that was not a chain and offered good food. This best Western had a pleasant staff, comfortable beds in well appointed rooms. There was a good selection of breakfast items. They did a good remodeling job. We were happy to park right in front of our room. Would definitely stay again if we were in the area or driving N-S.

"Great place to stop"

Kenneth M, southampton, United States 17/11/2015

Easy access off I95 gas stations very convenient safe area to stop on level hotel rooms, restaurant location convenient, pool available, free breakfast available 6:30 AM, internet available in room or in lobby. Great golf next door.

"Terrific overnight stay right off of 95"

Dona S, Lakehurst, New Jersey, United States 15/11/2015

After driving over 10 hours from FL this was a convenient and perfect hotel for our family of 4. Food choices nearby were good for dinner, and the morning breakfast was clean and ample. They even have a heated pool! Room was clean and fully prepped for our unexpected stay. We would definitely stay here again if in the area.

"Clean, convenient and reasonably priced"

User 12/11/2015

I had stayed at the Best Western Plus previously and had reserved a room for an annual trip I make north from Florida. Arrived early evening, no problems with check-in, room was clean as could be. Next door is the Captain's Quarters Restaurant, had dinner. I would stay there again. It was exactly what I expected for the price.

"Found wet unchanged bed"

Cheryl S, Central Florida, Florida 09/11/2015

When I informed front desk person she was defensive and said she could only refund my money instead of giving me another room. I requested she do so whereupon she said then she would call the general manager. I waited and presently was informed they would give me another room. There was no apology and it appeared that she believed the problem was caused by me. She asked if something was dripping from the ceiling. The bed covering was dry but only when I pulled back the covers did I discover this wet round spot. She suggested it was damp sheets. No. It was a definite wet round spot. It was clear to me the bed had not been changed

"Golfing in Santee Again"

RCAF831, Barrie, Canada 07/11/2015

The Best Western here in Santee is probably the best place to stay, always clean, maintained, great breakfast and staff that will always provide great service. Weather it be an overnight or a week stay like will not be disappointed.

"not quite a Plus hotel"

barbdan2014, Springfield, Massachusetts 03/11/2015

several check-in problems for us and other guests (many arrivals at same time), some had reservations, other did not. Almost non-existent water pressure in sink and noisy bathroom fan. Thank goodness for housekeeping staff who helped to coordinate rooms.

"A terrific value"

Patricia W, Camp Hill, United States 03/11/2015

This is a very attractive, very clean hotel. The staff is pleasant and the breakfast buffet was very nice and very fresh. I would (and am) staying here again. It is conveniently located with easy on / off access to I95.

"Back again....."

User 03/11/2015

I have stayed at this hotel several times while traveling from Canada to Florida. It is an easy on/off I-95. Any staff I came in contact with were friendly and helpful. The room was spotless, lovely decor and comfortable bed. Loved that there was a large desk, and comfortable desk chair for all my computer needs. Good internet service. I have always had a pleasant experience in this hotel and will definitely be back. One suggestion......breakfast can be very busy in this hotel so I suggest and early breakfast if you are at all anxious to get one road.

"Hotel Beware"

666Sparky666, Chattanooga, Tennessee 02/11/2015

Warning if you stay at this hotel you will need to protect yourself from the maids. Take Digital Photographs of the room with someone from the front desk before you check out. Anything they damage while cleaning your room will be billed to your credit card. Also if you stay more than one day never leave anything in your room, we came back to find the door OPEN to the STREET with the DO NOT DISTURB sign still on the door. If you want to watch TV, you will need your on DVD player, their cable system has so much interference the rolling lines will make you ill to watch. Nice pool but plan on cleaning the bugs out yourself. The exercise machine is a joke. You will also need air freshener to cover up the smell from septic system or something. Having your car next to your door is great unfortunately groups of drunk golfers can also gather at your door to party in the middle of the night. Plan on shaving in the shower since the flow restrictor on the sink will not let enough water out to wash off your razor.

"Could be a bit cheaper price-wise."

User 02/11/2015

When you walk into the room, you become overwhelmed by the decor. It is very nicely furnished. However, when you look a little closer, you see scuff marks on the walls, with remains of dead bugs, which is never something you want to see, especially for a restaurant you paid a bit more for so you wouldn't have to worry about any bug problems. As was said in previous reviews, it is a bit on the smaller side, especially in the bathroom, but it's not bad. The sheets seem a little damp, I'm wondering if that's just the humidity. Otherwise the bed is pretty comfortable. That being said, I wonder if the price is due to the well-kept pool, and the golf course right next door. I have not used these amenities, but I am also on a trip from Florida back to Jersey. I suppose people staying here, enjoying these things, would think the price is worth it. Overall, I feel like if you give the rooms a once over everyday to check for bugs (dead or alive), it would probably closer to your asking for. Just make sure it's show-ready! *i hadn't had much chance to interact with the staff, but when my mother was at the front desk, they seemed extremely courteous towards her.* ( also air fresheners might be a good idea, because someone smoked in this non-smoking room)

"Quaint place "

Kirkyboytheoriginal, North Webster, Indiana 30/10/2015

Older style Motel, single floor with outside room access. Not bad for a place right off the highway, but the person that checked me in would be my vote for grumpiest BW employee of the year. She also treated my business associate even worse. That just made the stay uncomfortable, but the morning breakfast was good. I stayed 4 nights so overall not too impressed. So much for southern hospitality.

"Good place to stop while drivng"

User 29/10/2015

This Best Western Plus had excellent bed for a good night's sleep. The room and Lobby were clean. Next door was an excellent restaurant, The Captain's Quarter. You can walk there. We will stay here again when driving through. Less than one hour drive to Charleston, SC.

"Oldie but goodie"

Kathi B, Port Saint Lucie, Florida 26/10/2015

This is an older facility with every room on the first floor and doors to rooms facing the parking lot. It makes it extremely convenient to unload the car. The room was very clean and the bed has a pillow top so it was quite comfortable. We will stay here again when we head North.

"Great value"

John P, Hickory, United States 22/10/2015

This older but extremely clean and nice Motel is a little GEM. located right next to a golf course if you like golf. Also located near Santee River which is well known for its great fishing. I stay there quite often when in the area. I am typically there on Business. Some good restaurants in the area also.

"Good place to stay over."

JoeDaudier1, Stuart, Florida 22/10/2015

The hotel was a good stay over. My wife and I were satisfied with the amenities. We had some good restaurants nearby to eat out. We eat at Pizza Hut almost across the street from the hotel. Real good. The price for the hotel room was in the ball park. Our hot breakfast was excellent.

"Mr. & Mrs."

User 14/10/2015

This motel is half way between our PA and FL homes. It is always clean and quiet. The beds are comfortable and showers have plenty of warm and soft water. The breakfast is great. We make it a point to always stay at Best Western but all BW's are not equal.

"Nice Find off of Route 95"

Regina G, Santee, United States 14/10/2015

Clean, comfortable, friendly staff and right off Route 95. Restaurant is excellent and so is the breakfast. A delightful find have been coming here for several years. on our way to Florida. Perfect place to stop and relax.

"Golf Trip"

Randy H, Bessemer City, North Carolina 06/10/2015

Once again this is probably the best hotel in the area to stay. This was a very wet weekend with all of the rain that was dumped over the South Carolina area. The staff go the extra mile to make you stay a pleasant one.

"It's fine, not special"

Dukeu3x, Sarasota, Florida 03/10/2015

It's a recently refurbished older motel. It's nice, not outstanding, but nice. I might stay there again or I might look for a better value. The tub/toilet area was cramped, but the room was spacious enough. Seems to attract drive through travelers and old men golfers.

"Spotless rooms"

Vickie R, Greenville, United States 28/09/2015

The hotel staff arriving and departing were polite and courteous. Our room was spotless and all amenities were in place. There is even a small closet should we have needed one. The internet worked properly. The breakfast was appetizing and the kitchen staff was polite. The lobby was cozy and the restrooms were very clean. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling for one night or more.

"Best Ever Western"

David M, Laceyville, United States 26/09/2015

we have never stayed at any Best Western in which every standard was above my expectation. i would go out of my way to stay in this motel. perfect in every way. breakfast was real and hearty. wish i could have eaten more. no hotel room we stayed in was perfect, but this room was on the top of my list as far as cleanliness. pool was large and actually open. no lounge, but we lounged in our room. if you have high expectations, you must needs stay at this motel. above reproach!!!

"Good accommodations for the price"

Nancy E, Woodbine, Maryland 23/09/2015

The room including bath was very clean (although there was some painting needed over some recent repairs in the bathroom). The room had a small refrigerator which was handy for storing soft drinks and some snacks. Breakfast was free, but unremarkable. The eggs and sausage were processed tasting and cold although there was yogurt available as an option.
