“Great stop over”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2012

On our way to the Florida Keys this was a wonderful stop. The room had a pillowtop king bed. It was very clean and you can pull your car right up to your door. There is restaurant on the property, now privately owned that is reasonable and very good. The free breakfast is great , including hot foods and a wide selection staged in a nicely decorated dining room . Looked like a nice pool and patio area, too. A great stop. approx. $80 a night with AAA discount.

Room Tip: all one level ....drive up to your door.

We stayed here in December, 2011 on a trip from CT to FL. After a long, horrible day of driving on I-95, we stayed this motor lodge and were very happy with the accomodations. The room and bathroom were very clean. The bed was very comfortable, allowing us to get the rest we needed to complete our trip.

The staff at this BW were friendly and helpful. Also, the complimentary breakfast was good with a nice selection of hot and cold breakfast foods. Better than most that we have experienced.

This is a great place to stay during your travels along I-95 in the southeastern US. I would stay here again and recommend it to others.

Like many others have stated, this is a motel right off I-95. I was pleasantly suprised at the cleanliness of the rooms and the complimentary continental breakfast. The breakfast included fresh waffles and biscuits. We had a room with 2 queen beds, and they were very comfortable.

I picked this hotel for an overnight stay on our way to FL. It is right off 95, great breakfast (included), and the room was very clean. I was a little surprised that it had exterior doors. We heard music outside, cars going in and out of the parking lot, and kids running around (which we would hear with interior corridors) but seemed louder than usual.
That being said, I think I would still stay there again for a one nighter. It did quite down and the beds are comfortable.

Stopped at the Visitor's Center to pick up the free RoomSaver & free Travel Coupon booklet. Found a coupon with a great savings for this hotel and glad we did. No climbing of stairs and rooms was extremely nice. Parking your car outside room for easy packing and unpacking. "They have a great complimentary breakfast in a very inviting dining room in which included a lot of hot meal items. Eggs, sausage, grits, biscuits etc etc." Usually stayed at the holiday inn across the street but had a problem. Glad it happened so we found another place which turned out even better and saved more money. Only drawback is I don't believe they have a indoor pool. I did see a nice one outside if that is something that is of importance to you.

Room Tip: Great complimentary breakfast and easy location to get on and off 95...

Santee is a big stopover destination heading to or from southern Florida. Just off of I 95 this is a good location. Older one story motel with parking in front of your room, free internet, coffee and chocolate chip cookies (fresh baked ) in the lobby, this is good place to stop. The bed was excellent. Also we appreciated the cleanable TV remote control. Breakfast was fine with an offering of make a waffle machine, grits, eggs as well as pastries breads and cereals.
The pool looked nice buyt we didn't get to enjoy it. We walked to the nearby Russell Stover outlet for some discounted chocolate treats and I walked across the street to the Piggly-Wiggly (a SC supermarket) to buy some grits on sale.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2011

stayed last night, 23 Dec 2011.

with a preponderance of one night visitors travelling new york - florida on I95, there is certainly no incentive to provide a superb experience. That said, the rooms are old ( similar furnishings to other BW motels i stayed in 15 years ago in pennsylvania ) but immaculate and all functioning and working just fine. Decent bed, decent hot water, even a nonsdescript packaged soap. NB - missed wake up call, but not a problem - awakened in time by ambient noise in the carpark.

200 yard off the highway, park in front of the door. very friendly staff, helpful, chatty, checking in and out. given the venue, great breakfast with a friendly woman keeping everything fresh and up to date - make your own pancakes, scrambled eggs ( prepackaged ), hard boiled eggs, bacon, sausage, grits, oatmeal, lots of cakes and toastable items, good coffee, juices, even a fruit salad, yogurt. this woman deserves a prize.

we noted on checking in that walkins were getting a cheaper rate than we did having booked a room with BW's home office with a discount. we bearded the desk person in the morning and were given the lower rate without a squabble. be aware. about a week ago, friends stayed in a neighboring motel, less pleased. BW Santee is a solid favorable recommendation.

Room Tip: having checked out already available pictures - accurate, no need to duplicate.
