Our house was tented for termites and we needed to stay away 2 nights. I checked out another nearby motel according to its nightly rate, but after reading Tripadvisor, decided against it, too many bad reviews. I decided on Best Western. I have never been disappointed. The Manager was professionally attired, answered all my questions, made sure our room was...

We always stay at the Santee Lodge when coming to visit friends and family. The staff is always friendly and helpful and the rooms are always clean and very comfortable. The Breakfast buffet has more than enough choices for everyone, even the pickiest eater! We like staying at a hotel where the staff greets you and actually remembers you from...

Our house was tented for termites and we needed a place to stay for 2 nights. I decided on Best Western because I can trust that my stay will be comfortable, safe, with great breakfast and wifi. Room appeared to be newly painted, great bedding, clean bathroom, soft bath towels, hot water. Quite location, convenient to restaurants, shopping.

Was a last minute booking way out of my area of doing business. However I liked the room and especially the Bed. The internet service was usable unlike my experience at other hotels that provide free internet service. Did run out of body wash. That is something I expect the staff to make sure does not happen.

We stayed here while visiting family in Santee. The staff was very helpful and pleasant. If you need to shop while on vacation or visiting then this hotel is close to everything you may need. Almost all the rooms are around the pool area. It is a small hotel and long vehicles will have a parking issue when the hotel...

This is a decent motel in an area where there is not a lot of motels or restaurants. The room was clean and had been updated and most importantly, the bed was comfortable. The breakfast choices were many and were kept filled and the area kept clean. Good service from the lady who was working there!

Going in to this hotel, I didn't expect much. But, the room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and the amenities were great for the price. All employees that I spoke with were very nice and helpful. I booked this hotel because it was just down the street from my friends' apartment, which made transportation easy. I would stay here...

This is a run down hotel and the TV in my room was broken. I asked the staff and the maintenance man came up and said I was right that it was broken. They expect to have it fixed next week. That didn't help me at all. The Internet was also difficult to get on. Just a bad stay.
