We picked this hotel as our half-way stop last year on a FL trip because it is dog-friendly and returned this year. The place is right off 95 but still quiet. Rooms are clean and good-sized. Bathrooms fine (some nicer than others). Staff are very friendly and helpful, especially Sharon & Jerome in the restaurant with their awesome southern-fried chicken...

Booked this hotel last minute as our first choices were not available. Room was clean and beds comfortable. However we had too many small problems that reduced my overall rating. WiFi setup was screwed up, water pressure low, one room card did not work, TV remote was low on batteries and wouldn't work, and the restaurant breakfast service was slow...

Was nice and clean, Very polite at check-in. A little on the pricey side for the area but was still nice. Room was clean. Drawbacks. Water pressure was a little on the low side and as for morning coffee tasted like it had soap in it. But plenty of places in the area to get coffee.

We wound up at the Holiday Inn Santee because our 2 prior choices had no rooms available, a result of highway lane closures that delayed everyone from reaching their targeted destinations. Happy that the Holiday Inn was able to accommodate us, but sad at what we received there, for roughly double the cost of staying at our preferred accommodation (it,...

Santee is a popular stop on I95 to Florida from the North East. We chose the Holiday Inn as it is pet friendly, there are cheaper choices. After 12 hours on the road we were glad we stayed here, a very comfortable room and bed on the 4th floor. So we woke up quite refreshed. They have a coffee shop...

An average Holiday Inn, maybe a little older than most, but refurbished and decent. The sink faucet sprayed water out of the handle when it was turned on, but wrapping it with a towel took care of the mess. What was surprising was that - at the prices charged - there was no breakfast provided. In other Holiday's at which...

Thank you for your review. It is against IHG policy to give our members free breakfast as we are a full service Holiday Inn and offer a restaurant for your convenience. We do appreciate your loyalty as a Gold Elite Member of our rewards club. Thank you.

Traveling home from Florida, have found this a nice mid-point place to stay. Always clean, quiet and helpful staff. However, On February 15 a quest with a two dogs was put on the third floor. The dogs do what they do - BARK. We did not appreciate the barking waking us up 2 hours before we had planned. The owner...

The Holiday Inn in Santee, SC has been a convenient place for my husband and myself, along with our small dog, to stop on our regular trips from New York to Florida. In fact, we did not even ask for the room rate yesterday, as we have stayed there frequently in the past. Imagine our surprise this morning when our...

We needed a pet friendly hotel on on our way south. This hotel puts all the dogs, and all the smokers on 1 floor, so the corridor stunk. Also they charge more for dogs over 25 lbs, which makes no sense to me. The lobby is beautiful and serves breakfast and dinner. The room was a standard room. Comfortable bed,...

Greeted very warmly when we arrived with our four legged fur child. The room was very well maintained and clean. Pet fee at $20 a night is pretty high. No continental breakfast either! The friendliness of the staff was probably worth the extra money that it cost us to stay for one quick night. A porter immediately came to my...
