Reviewed January 1, 2013

We pulled into the Hampton Inn after 12 long driving hours dodging snow and rain. A place to rest and be comfortable was at the top of the list. Hampton Inn provided that and more.

First, a caveat...this facility is undergoing renovation. Therefore, the public rooms are unfinished. Despite this, all amenities were provided, (freshly baked cookies, yum!) If you exercise, the opportunity was there. And the delicious morning breakfast provided choices to appeal to any appetite. We had no trouble finding a place to sit and enjoy our food.

Our greatest delight was our room. It was spacious, newly renovated, and decorated in restful colors. Bed...excellent. Sofa...just what you needed for TV viewing. Bathroom...grab bars and space between toilet and shower to step out and dry out. And it was quiet, so we had a grand sleep. However, perhaps the strongest point is its location across the street from a Russell Stover outlet. We indulged in the ice cream, but it was awfully hard to ignore the tempting candies and candy apples on display.

If you are headed north or south, this Inn has easy access from 95. You will not be disappointed in the service, location or comfort.

We were staying here on our way to Florida and had our plans disrupted by hurricane Sandy in New York. On the off chance that I might find a sympathetic ear at the Hampton Inn, I called and spoke to Dale Jones. Without any pleading on my part, she solved our problem. What a joy.

On top of that, the stay was great. Friendly staff. Clean, comfortable, quiet room. Good breakfast. We'll be back. Thanks, Dale. The Hampton Inn in Santee is doing it right.

We took another extended trip up the eastern seaboard starting from home in Florida. This was our first stop and while the property is on the old side the beds are very comfy and the place is abit outdated but very clean. Breakfast was good and included in the price of room. Staff very friendly and helpful. Would recommend this as a stop if you are in the area.

Room Tip: All rooms are good.

Thank you so much for the nice review of our property. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. We actually just started a renovation this week on our lobby, breakfast area, exercise room, and business center. We are very excited about the changes. I hope you get to come back again and can let us know what you think of the upgrades.

Just passing through on our way to visit some friends in NC. Price was right and more importantly the room was clean! The breakfast buffet was perfect and hit the spot... The only negative was the air-conditioning unit. Every time it cycled on the noise would wake you up, so a good part of the night my husband was up. Good thing we only had a four hour drive ahead of us.

My wife, 6month old baby and I were traveling to Florida on I 95 late at night when we had a flat tire and had to call aaa for assistance--it took them several hours to arrive and my wife had become frightened and the baby was annoyed so I asked the guy for a recommendation for a decent hotel and he said Hampton Inn-we arrived and were told the room was 109 by the guy on the front desk (Charles)-we explained what had happened and he was the perfect host-when I told him the tow driver had said the spare was good for about 50 miles he told me about a tire store in St. George SC and then went through a drawer on the desk and found a business card for a local place that said they carried tires--he said he wasn't sure they would be able to help us we were out in the country but that he headed towards St. George on his way home and that if we couldn't get any satisfaction to let him know and he would gladly give ride to St. George to see about a tire. The room he put us in was very clean and spacious and my wife felt comfortable right away-the baby even stopped fussing-the 109 was a little bit more than we were looking to pay but absolutely well worth it--breakfast was included and the was just as awesome as the rest of our untimely stay--if this is what southern hospitality is all about this guy should give lessons!! I hightly recommend Hampton Inn Santee

Stopped here on the way to Florida from NJ. Travelling with my wife and rented a king room. Room was spacious, immaculately clean with a large tastefully designed and renovated bathroom. Staff very friendly and welcoming. Free WiFi and breakfast. Nice selection for a free breakfast with helpful attendants in a very clean comfortable dining area. As most motels on the Rt. 95 corridor it is located in a "motel alley." The location is not scenic and is next to a rather seedy looking motel.
I will definitely return on my next visit.
