The Whitten Inn is a clean and comfortable place to stay while on your travels. We decided to give it a try after staying at the nearby Super 8 on prior trips. We feel we made a good choice. Very economical and only a minimal charge for our cat. In-room refrigerator was a nice touch. We will definitely choose to... More

please don't stay here ...the only way you would get me to stay at this place again is if they removed the bathroom doors. It is no laughing matter to be locked in a bathroom simply by closing a door and simply locking it behind you. thankfully I was not alone in the room and my daughter heard me knocking... More

A year ago the parking lot and pool area had many feral cats. They are now ALL gone. One more observation. For five years A group of us stayed here during a golfing trip. No More. The hot breakfast that was included in our package (for which we paid extra)was no different than what was given to the general public.

Traveling to Florida, we needed a clean and comfortable place to sleep and refresh for the next day of driving. The local Hampton Inn was full so we decided that we would try the Whitten Inn. Including taxes the room was only $61 for the night. The staff was very nice. My room was very clean and the bed was... More

Almost everything about our stay was disappointing. When you first walk in to your room you are greeted with a sign aggressively stating that, if you steal the towels, you will not only be charged, but reported to the police -- which is really one of the worst ways to welcome your guests and make them feel at home (picture...

We arrived at the inn after a ten hour drive wanting nothing more than a decent bed and a good nights sleep. We had made our reservation using hotels.com and paid in advance. They said they didn't have our reservation when we arrived so we waited twenty minutes in the smoky noisy lobby which is beside the roadhouse bar area... More

I was looking for an economical place to spend the night on the long drive home from Bonita Springs Florida, I picked a spot around 10 hours down the highway and Santee South Carolina came up. The larger chains were booked up so I thought I'd take a chance on the Whitten Inn. The price seemed reasonable so I booked... More

This is obviously an old, very old property. I just spent two nights there and it was fine. Someone else put me up and I don't the rate, but the rack rate for a single was $85. I would assume my host paid less. It was clean and everything I tried worked, and the staff were friendly. Some furniture and... More

Not the cleanest place we have stayed, the pool looked fairly clean, There was free wifi, but it did not work in the room. You had to sit in the lobby. The front desk was courteous. There were two pubs nearby that had great food.

An old style motel, no inside corridor, with a low price. Nothing exceptional, but nothing shocking. The pool is good for travellers with children, but if traveling without children be sure to request an out-facing room.
