“This is a small one story Best Western Plus”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

We always stop here overnight on our way to Florida. Thee rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. The people are always hospitabile no matter what time of the night we arrive. There is also a wonderfully delicious 24 hour restaurant next door (not sure of the name). The wait staff are friendly and attentive. The coffee is fresh, hot and heavenly, the B.L.T. is to die for, soups excellent. A definite must - the friendliest people work there.

Room Tip: Make a reservation in case there is a golf event in town.

A friend and I stayed here with my two young kids, and from the outside it didnt seem bad. Inside was pretty clean, but there was hair in the tub and sink still, and a muddy footprint in the bathtub. However, after flying 9.5 hours from Germany to Dover, and then driving to SC all in the same day I was ready to put the kids in bed. Around 3 am, we heard someone trying to start a manual car, and they were stalling it out. We looked out the window to see his car gone. He ran outside, the guy jumped out, and the car rolled away. Luckily we got it back, undamaged. And the hotel was nice enough to refund the room for the night, but we left right after the police report was filed. I would not stay here again, or recommend anyone to either/ I can look past the hair, but the car being stolen was a no-go

Always looking for a break in our travel from Florida. We found this wonderful hotel in Santee SC and this Best Western Plus is outstanding. Breakfast is clean, neat and well maintained. It features single story rooms and is near I-95 but no noise and clean with wonderful employees who really take pride in assuring you a pleasant stay. However, you are in South Carolina, so while rooms are smoke free and entry also, guest smoke outside rooms, around pool and outside main entrance. But directly behind the Best Western is the Lake Marion golf club, a great way to spend a morning or afternoon, very nice course.

Great "classic" hotel with large, spotless ,low- priced rooms. Door opens to parking lot and colonial architecture, hence "classic" label.. Great four star, resonably priced "Captains' Quarters" restaurant contiguous.

Walk across to lighted driving range to brushup your strokes, and hike/bike in nearby Santee State Park along Lake Marion.

This motel is a real find. Yes it is older but it's very clean and the rooms have been updated. From check in this motel was a real southern treat. The bed was more comfortable then mine at home. The room was clean and smelled fresh. There is a great restaurant on the premises. Breakfast had a great assortment. I will be staying here again.

We stayed here for one night to break the journey on the way to Florida. This is a classic motel with a "family owned" feel to it. It is convenient to the I-95, clean and well-run. The room was clean and comfortable. Everything worked. There was a nice pool, although we didn't use it given the weather that evening. The reception staff were friendly and efficient. The breakfast (included) was served in a pleasant dining area and adequate to start the day. A couple of restaurants are within easy walking distance. We had a good dinner at the Thai across the street. We didn't have much time to explore the lake and park but have done so in the past and it is a good place for a quick picnic on a nice day. This is an ideal place to break a long journey.

Traveling on I95, many motels are as old as the road itself, or near that. The Best Western Santee seemed to be in that category. It is definitely an old place. The rooms were well-maintained and comfortable. There were several buildings in the complex, and we stayed in one that was a few minute walk to the lobby. The hotel itself is far enough away from I95 that there were no highway noises to speak of. My one complaint was that the breakfast area was so small that it was difficult to get breakfast.

Room Tip: No suggestions here.
