We stopped at this Holiday Inn on our way south. We stopped in Santee and checked to see if this hotel accommodated pets. Once we were registered we were given a room on the fourth floor which is reserved for travelers with pets. We found a clean room with comfortable beds. No trace of previous pets was noticeable. We heard...

This was a bit of an odd property. Sort of a cross between a Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express (I think they might be trying to serve both types of customers). As an example, I expect a continental breakfast to be included in the room cost at a Holiday Inn Express, yet at this hotel you had to pay...

This hotel is under renovation, but it is still very good. Everything is above average at this holiday inn except for the fitness center. If they got some working equipment in the fitness center, I would definitely return to this location

We chose this pet friendly hotel over a competitor in Santee, on our way south just because of personal preference. It is nicely located, like most hotels in Santee, just off I-95 with gas and restaurants very close by. A great place for a sleep over. The lobby and adjacent restaurant (not a Holiday Inn Express so all meals extra)...

We stayed one night. The front desk service was good. They put us in a handicapped room which was huge. No problem with that. The room had a flat screen TV and the bed was nice. We paid 94 dollars a night AAA weekday rate, which I thought was a little pricy for a weekday. Good for an overnight stay.
