Most of the hotels in the area are in this condition which is not good. Can't expect much for 50 a night I guess.

We were sorta pleased with this hotel and rooms although building is very old. The rooms were not clean and had a musty smell with the order of smoke in a non smoking room, but was manageable once we cleaned it up. Maid service were very substandard . The continental breakfast was more than just sweets with bagels, cereal, sausage... More

The front desk staff was great, he gave me a good rate and I definitely liked it. The room was good, bathroom was clean and the bed was really comfortable. Continental breakfast was amazing. I would definitely recommend this hotel for everyone.

The first day I went to play golf and the second day I just stayed in my room. Overall I had an excellent time in Santee. I recommend this... More

95+ degree day, worsened experience by poor A/C. Dirty room. Mattress dipped greatly in center. How old was it? Spider behind wall outlet at sink. Shower curtain coming out of wall at one end. Mediocre breakfast area at best. No chance of return.
