I really like to stay at local motels, not chains. I saw the signs on the interstate and decided to give it a try. I had a room with a King bed, couch, and desk area. Room had 4 lamps, but only one worked. 2 were not even plugged in as there was no plug for them to use. The... More

In two+ years this place has gone from a clean and friendly family owned inn, to a virtual dump! The rooms have been trashed and are in complete disrepair. The staff is clueless and unapologetic! The grounds and common areas are in as much a level of disrepair as the guest rooms. If I was the owners I'd have my... More

Room was ok.. But breakfast and outside of the place was skeptical.. Would not stay again... Area was great go and find something to eat..people working behind counter top don't like to help.. Waffle machine was broken, no juice and hired help didn't want help.

I saw some decent reviews of this place online, but I can honestly say they were wrong. It was late when I got there, so I really had no choice but to stay. The WiFi didn't work, the tank on the toilet was siliconed together as it had cracked, the shower was dirty, the vanity was canted like someone had... More

Went on a Golf Trip with a bunch of guys. Every room was dirty and had maintenance issues. Had to kill (2) bugs in the room. Bathroom walls had holes, floor by toilet was rotted and the original tub was so dirty that they had to put in a bath mat to cover it instead of replacing. Entire hotel was... More

This is the first time I have ever written a review but feel by not writing I am doing everyone a disservice. We were driving from Florida to MD. South Carolina was a parking lot so we pulled off in Santee to find no rooms available except here. It was late and we have small kids or else would have... More

I just had the misfortune of stay at the Whitten Inn at Santee, SC. The hotel room had an over powering stinch of tobacco smoke and dirty dog. The worst part was waking up to a horde of cockroaches throughout the room. I would highly recommend staying anywhere but here.

It is now called the Whitten Inn to protect the guilty. First thing we saw was cobwebs totally around the room at the ceiling wall line. The toilet seat was downright dangerous,barely connected to the commode. Two tissues only in the tissue holder. Only soap was in Dial wall dispensers. Our travel companions had no towels in their room and... More

We recently stayed here and Tara (manager) was able to accommodate our group of 20 rooms with a month's notice. The rooms have not seen any physical upkeep since it was a Ramada Inn years ago -- that is sad because the staff is super friendly and tries very hard. Since we stay in Santee once a year in conjunction... More

This was a comfortable and clean hotel and very friendly service. Beds are very comfortable and a great price. I will stay there again if I am ever traveling that way. I will recommend this place to family and friends.
