Comfort Inn & Suites
Ranked #7 of 13 Hotels in Santee
Reviewed March 25, 2012

We have been staying here each year for about 10 years in conjunction with the Elloree Trials -- an annual day of of horse racing in nearby Elloree (6 miles away). It has become a big spring event for us -- reconnecting with old friends, adding new friends and making memories each year. Dian Wiles, the manager, has taken care of our group each year. Even though I start around January - our rooms list doesn't fully finalize until about a week before the event. Diane has always worked with our group and our 2 nighters (Friday and Saturday) has grown. We just got back and although the motel is undergoing major renovations the rooms were clean and in good order -- we're excited about the final renovations and have already reserved our block of rooms for next year. The renovations are now mainly in the 'public' areas and although it's not sa nice as it will be - Diane and her staff are very accommodating.

Room Tip: Rooms on 2nd floor are mere steps away from the lobby and breakfast area. The elevator is a bit slow...

The room was well appointed, the room was clean, the desk service was expedient....despite the renovation mess, it was well worth the nominal rate. We would stay there again.

My wife and I stopped here on our drive to South Florida. The hotel was being renovated on the outside during our stay but did not detract at all. The rooms and lobby were in good shape. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was clean. The continental breakfast was what we expected including waffles. Wi-Fi worked fine throughout the building. Staff was friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again. The inn is right off I95 although not on the main road. Restaurants of all types were within walking distance. There was a book with menus from many restaurants in the inn.

My spouse and I have stayed here four or eive times for a week at a time dating back to 2005 while on golf vacations.Have always found the staff and management to be very pleasent and helpful. Diane Wiles the manager is a very nice and obliging person who goes out of her way to assist. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. We have always had a room with a king bed and actually last time had a jaccuzzi tub in room which was excellent after a game of golf. The breakfast was excellent with a variety of ifems. Restaurants for lunch or evening meals are within walking distance ( Cracker Barrel ) and many others are a little longer walk or a short drive away. Again a great place to stay an we look forward to our golf vacation and the stay at the Santee Inn and Suites in 2012.

Room Tip: All rooms we have stayed in have been excellent.

Santee Inn & Suites recently became independent after being affiliated with Country Inn & Suites. Until new signage is in place, it will be difficult to locate, but is beside both a Holiday Inn and a Fairway Inn, a long block south of SC 6 on the west side of I-95 in Santee.

The room was impeccably clean and everything it in worked, which puts it above plenty of interstate motels. There was a spacious desk with adequate lighting, a wall-mounted hair dryer, and plenty of very hot water. Wi-fi worked just fine and the TV functioned although it was not a flat-screen model. The room had no microwave or refrigerator, so the ice machine at the rear of the lobby came in handy.

Service at the front desk was informative and friendly. A request for a walking route elicited directions to a 2 1/4 mile traffic-free stretch of bridge and abandoned road at nearby Lake Marion. That was an excellent recommendation!

A notebook in the lobby reproduces local restaurant menus, but that gives short shrift to the Lone Star BBQ & Mercantile, a must-see which has received excellent reviews on this website.

The breakfast area was spacious. Food offerings included mini-bagels and full-fat cream cheese, the common spiraled sweet muffins, bread for toast, packets of instant oatmeal and instant grits, canned peaches, raisin bran and generic Cheerios (c), and strawberry and blueberry.low-fat yogurt. The one waffle iron would have been woefully insufficient had the motel had much occupancy. (Late at night, I counted just eight vehicles in the parking lot.) There were no hardboiled eggs, no fresh fruit of any kind, and inexplicably, the only milk was 2% fat content. A machine dispensed three cold beverages, and there was coffee and a selection of tea bags.

A coupon from one of the rest stop motel books allowed allowed a total price of fifty bucks and change. At that cost, the clean and well-maintained Santee Inn is a good value for travelers wanting safe, moderately priced lodging.

Newly remodeled. Very nice breakfast. Clean. Appeared to be American owned and run. Nothing fancy. Around $50, including taxes, with coupon. Would certainly recommend.
