Stopped here on return trip to Ohio from wonderful vacation at Disney with my family. I would like to comment on the people that work here and not on the hotel, which was very nice in my opinion.
We arrived around 11:30 at night very tired and just looking to unload some things and get some rest. In the process of everybody unloading from minivan we rented and getting into hotel one of the side slide doors was left open all night and morning. I received a call about 9 am from the hotel desk asking if I was driving this van. (I started to panic). I stated I was and she stated that the side door was open and I should come down. I got down to the car in under a minute to find one of the hotel staff members, I think his name was Ted, standing guard by the van. He described how he had been out there for some time and had been keeping and eye on it wondering why the door was open. Just before I came out he closed the door knowing no one was loading or unloading it.
I can't thank "Ted" enough and the other hotel personal that we're involved and aware of what was going that I talked to. This could of ruined our entire trip if the wrong person had got their before Ted. I have two five year olds and a ten year old that had electronic devices all over the car. One of the iPads was right on seat on door that was open not to mention all of my camera gear I had in the back.
I could go on and on but in my experience it's people that make the difference where you go and how you remember things. I will remember what Ted and this hotel staff did for my family and this is why I will return here each time I travel back and forth to Florida. Thank-you.

The hotel was undergoing (needed) renovations, which caused some inconveniences. I feel that this should have been noted on the reservation information.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Brenda15 No complimentary breakfast.
After 13 days on the road we were headed home. Stopped here because it was convenient and we were tired. We paid the same price we had been paying, on average, but didn't notice that there was no hot breakfast provided. We had gotten use to this amenity at other comparable hotels.
The breakfast deals are a bonus in many ways. If you are sightseeing, you want to get on the road to attractions ASAP. Go downstairs, eat, and you're on your way. Also, you feel that you are getting a "bonus".
There was a restaurant at this location. We laughed at the menu in the elevator. We could get a bowl of "hot oatmeal" for $4.75. Thanks, but no thanks.
Also, there was no sign after we turned off the interstate.

Halls and room had a very unappealing odor - as one has said "like cheap bawdyhouse perfume".

Very Good, clean. Enjoyed the amenities. The Bathroom a little small and our only concern was the noise level of Air Conditioning coming on and off.

They had the room I requested ready when I arrived, but the bed was extremely uncomfortable. The table lamps didn't work (broken switch). The furniture was filthy.

Staff was excellent and accommodating to please the customer.
The requests was handled with a smile and with satisfaction. The attitude of the staff was embracing and family atmosphere. We were welcomed as family coming home. The service staff (kitchen, bar, maid, maintenance, desk) are professional. A great experience.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Fototekno Acceptable But Not Worth the Value
I made reservations early but the front desk rep gave us a room for the handicap without advising us that the room was such. This is not acceptable. We chose staying in this location because it is pet friendly but found out it was not human friendly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Earl's Mystere Holiday Inn Santee
This is the best hotel I have stayed at while in Santee, SC. The hotel staff is professional, courteous, friendly, and helpful. My room was clean and in very good condition.
Due to a nose bleed I could go out to dinner so I ordered room service. The food was delicious and served professionally by the staff. But that is what I expected, top notch service. After watching TV a short while I enjoyed a excellent nights sleep and awoke the next morning well rested. After a hot shower I went downstairs for breakfast. They were not open yet so I had a cup of coffee and read the morning paper (free copy), USA Today. The breakfast selection included cold cereal, milk, fresh fruit, eggs, sausage patties, an assortment of biscuits, bread, and rolls, fruit juices, and coffee and tea. The Holiday Inn in Santee, SC will be my regular stop in the future. A very good hotel.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Fred019283 Terrible
Check in time was 4:00 pm. When I got to the hotel, which was after 5:00 pm the maid was still cleaning the room, which I suspect did not get finished because of my arrival (see for more information). I stayed in room 324. In this room both door knobs to the closet had broken hardware. The hardware to the room door itself was also broken on the inside of the door. It looked like someone had broken into the room. Does not give you a good feeling when a mother of three young kids (8, 4 and 2) shows up to stay in the room alone. The premium TV channels, like Disney, would not come in. All you could hear was static and the the channel had lines through it. When I went to give my kids a bath, the bath tub stopper was also broken, so I could not give them a bath. The next moring when I went to take a shower I noticed several curley que's on the shower wall and someone's used bath rag ontop of the shower cutain rod itself. When I went to check out the next morning there was no one at the front desk. The front desk has several people waiting for someone to help them. Finaly after at least 5 minutes, I placed my key cards on the front desk (were at least a dozen other cards were piling up) and left.

This is our second stay at this Holiday Inn and we found the facility to be very well kept, staff professional and friendly and the room excellent. The hotel is located close to several restaurants and just off the interstate.

I was disappointed that the $ 75.00 per night coupon that I presented was not accepted, The clerk was not clear on why she could not accept it. To be honest, after driving 9hrs through rain abd wind there was no fight left in me.

I'm a Platinum member and I'm disappointed with this property. The room was not clean. We found loose pharmaceutical pills on the floor. There were used bars of soap in the bathroom. The coffeemaker was broken. There were no pens or paper in the room.
Breakfast was another unfortunate story. The staff was completely disorganized. Guest's orders were lost, wrong meals were delivered, we received two checks for different amounts while another table had to wait for their tab to be delivered from our table. I waited ten minutes for the payment processing and finally ended up retrieving my card and paying cash just so I could get on the road. The next night we stayed in Carlisle PA, a much better experience. I'm a loyal IHG member, in fact I also have time shares in Myrtle Beach and Orange Lakes. This property in Santee needs a little better supervision!

Everything was excellent except I was thinking that you
had a free continental breakfast only to find out that was
false and I felt that the menu was expensive so I did
not try it.

I often stop here with my pets. Great food and staff. This last trip the wireless was not working at the south end of the building ( a recurring problem if you get the end rooms on the 4th Deck). Night staff brought me a cable up to connect to the wall.
One minor nit was that rust was starting to bleed through at the base of the bath.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by mrslucky913 Uncomfortable beds and expensive water.
The beds here are sunken in the middle, so you had no choice but to sleep there. There were numerous handles missing from the drawers in our room and the bathroom faucet leaked. We could of had a panty with theamount of popcorn we found under one of the beds. Then they want to charge you $1.00 for a .20 bottle of CVS water. As a platinum member I was offered one of these free along with some mixed nuts, really. I also had the option of getting a free drink from their bar, but only if I purchased a meal. And what Holiday Inn doesn't have free breakfast?, this one. Needless to say this Holiday Inn will not be in our list of future places to stay in Santee SC.

The front desk staff was very professional and the greeting was warm and friendly. Our room was clean and the bed was comfortable.
We ate dinner in the restaurant. Service was adequate and the food was good but not spectacular.
We a attempted to eat breakfast in the restaurant but ended up leaving due to slow, poor service. The restaurant had only one other table occupied at the time. It took over 5 minutes for someone to acknowledge we were there and after another 5 minutes our water had not yet been delivered to our table. That is when we decided to go elsewhere.

The room was very big. Nice. But, the TV was a 12" model and 25 feet from the bed. Go figure.....
The lighting in the bathroom and over the "bar" area was lacking. Big time.

My wife, our pet Maltese and I stopped for overnight stays during our trek to Destin, FL and back.. This Holiday Inn provided us with our best halfway overnight stop since we began spending part of winter in Florida.
The room was quiet and clean; the bed was comfortable and there was ample space in the bathroom.

We look for pet friendly. Traveling from Ct were supposed to stay in Fayetteville but decided to go further. Glad we did. We had stayed here last time we came down. The staff is great they even remembered us. Like we were family. The restaurant has the best fried chicken and the people to go with it. Will definitely stay again.
