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.

Tired from a long drive and didn't take the time to check here first. The Whitten Inn was cheap ($55 with taxes). The lobby area was presentable and the clerk was friendly and efficient but that's where it ended. This motel and our room is very tired and in need of a major sprucing up. The bath tub was horribly... More

I stay in a lot of cheap places. The internet here is abysmal. VPN to my office would reset every couple of minutes, making it almost impossible to work. It's not the wifi signal, as that was pretty good. There appears to be some sort of nanny program that doesn't like VPN or games (tried my favorite MMORP online game... More

At its price, you will not be disappointed with the Whitten Inn. This hotel is extraordinarily clean, in good repair, with large rooms, and the most hospitable front desk staff I have ever encountered during my prolific travels. In addition, the hotel is pet friendly. I would stay at the Whitten Inn again and again, should my travels take me... More

I like cats, but that was terrible! Cats everywhere outside! The room had hair all over it. It smelled like cheap soap. Outside spelled of cat pee! Save you're money! I bet the cleaners don't even care about the people in the hotel!

Good Value. We stayed here many times over the years. The rooms seems newly done since last year. Nice. WIFI is free and very good. Convinient location off of 95. Santee Lake and Park is a great place to bike, hike and boat. Lounge was very smoky. Recommend hotel but not lounge.

This had to be by far the worst hotel ever! The web page is not the same hotel you stay in. The lady at the front desk told me the rooms were very nice. Not at my standards. The minute I walked in I saw cockroaches in the corners and bathtub. The air conditioner was plugged in by an extention... More
