Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Luckygreydog A nice, pet friendly hotel
A clean, comfortable hotel that was pet friendly with easy access to I 95. I would stay here again. The only surprise was the room had a shower stall and no bath tub.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SrSr Great Facility, Lousy Food
The heading says it all. The room was clean, well organized and spacious. The downside was the noise that emanated from the elevator each time it was activated. It seems that the rooms located behind the elevator suffer from this noise pollution. The pillow were hard, but that I guess is personal taste.
The one thing I recommend is to not bother with the free breakfast. The quality of the food is sub-par.

Beds had a visible hole in them from not being turned. The breakfast was sub par. I stayed at an express and had a much better bed, TV, and breakfast.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by rscott1948 Nothing special
We called from the road about an hour out. Front desk did not recognize the rewards status except 2 bottles of water and free limited breakfast voucher and a drink voucher if you bought an app.
The room we had was clean and the size of a small basketball court but furnished for a regular room. The TV was disproportionately small for such a large room and from the bed you could hardly see the picture. Bar staff was not friendly and spent more time in a booth talking to someone rather than behind the bar. Front desk staff was on the computer near the front door both when we checked in and when we checked out.

Great motel, scooter acessible, lobby resturant very convenient with good food. Motel difficult to locate, town needs street signs that are easier to read. No motel signs

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Tric Non smoking room smelled like smoke
The hotel is very clean and this is the third time staying there. We got to our non smoking room and it smelled like smoke. The billing is not right, we held our room on a different card than we paid with. The charges showed on both cards, and then cleared off the second after three days, but that was not my money for three days. They also charged an extra $30 which cleared off in 3 days because there was a resturant on premisus, but I did not use it.
Non of this occurred on my previous stays, and I might choose a different facility next time.

I have stayed at this particular Holiday Inn on several occasions and each time I found it to be very clean and comfortable, including the rooms that allow pets. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Perfect location with easy access to I-95. I would definitely recommend Santee, SC Holiday Inn to those who appreciate a nice place to rest up before hitting the road.

Have stayed at this Holiday Inn Express at least a half dozen times. Staff friendly, courteous and helpful. Most recently raining heavily when I was going to park car. Staff made certain I had an umbrella so as not to get drenched. Other times very helpful in other areas as shopping and computer. Facility always clean and quiet. Recommend without hesitation.

On our journey we stayed primarily at HI because of their policy on service animals. We were pleased that the fee is waived for service pets.

We were ther a month before, this last visit, and had a pleasant experince.
During this visit, we found our room was not clean. It was made up, but the carpet was dirty, and the bathroom was so-so.,etc.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by EC58 Not quite the experience we were hoping to find.
Unfortunately this property has begun to show its age. The air conditioner fan in our room cycled from slow to fast to stop continuously all night. If we just turned on the fan it got warm very quickly. The only way to prevent it was to turn it off completely (not a good move in July). As a result we did not have a restful night. The hallway carpet could stand to be replaced, ditto the carpet in the rooms. Usually our experiences with Holiday Inn/Holiday Inn Express are very good ones, so this was a disappointment.

The room is so so, pool is supposed to be heated but I don't call 60 DEG heated. No hot tub. Forget the Restaurant I had the special 2 porkchops they were thinner then pancakes and thin sliced bread.

This is a very convenient stop for us and we have been staying with our small dog each year since you have been open. But, despite all the good things, the rooms really need a makeover.

We stay in this hotel at least twice a year as it takes dogs. It's well located, clean and comfortable. However it's time for a "redo" Carpets in hallway are old, smelly and warn. The carpets in and in front of elevators curl up so someonce could trip. Some of room hardware is broken. Given the number of pet owners who choose this hotel, it must be a gold mine and could use with reinvestment into the place. Maxwell B.

Motel room was clean, with plenty of room with executive king room. We stayed in a "no pet " room which was nice. Front desk staff was courteous and friendly and check in was a breeze. My only comment is the motel does not offer a continental breakfast so if you are looking for something to eat you have to use the motel restaurant or go to some other area restaurant.

We enjoyed our stay very much, both comfortable and clean. We also were happy about the nearby Restaurants. Breakfast could have been better. Several things on the menu were not available and the fruit in the fruit salad was not etable.

The hotel room was dirty,hair found in both beds.
Bath room was dirty and the visible dirt on the hair dryer was awful. Front desk staff was not informative, lacked warm reception. They just wanted to check me in as fast as possible. I called front desk & no one answered, walked down and the lady was just standing there.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Patrix Great place for pets!!!
We always stay in Holiday Inns and this one time, had to move our cat 900 miles. There weren't too many last minute choses for a decent hotel but we stopped at a welcome center who helped us to find this place along I-95. I knew what to expect from Holiday Inn and when we got to our room, I was really surprised! I wouldn't have guessed a pet had stayed in this room before. They only charged $20 dollars more for a pet. I know places that charge over $100 so this was also wonderful. I highly recommend this place. The restaurant and bar weren't fancy but the wait staff made up for the casualness. They were great. Believe me, when you are very tired, having pleasant staff is a plus.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mags2006 Unfortunate experience
We will probably not return to this hotel. First there was a line-up and 20-minute wait at check-in because one of your 2 computers was down. Then, even though we had specifically reserved a non-smoking room, we found out after arriving at the room with all our luggage and dog that our room smelled of stale cigarette smoke and was one of only about 7 rooms on the entire 4'th floor designated as a smoking room. Surely the check-in staff know which rooms are which. Then we had another 15-minute wait to change the room and move all our luggage and dog out and in. Then, even the second room, while assigned as a non-smoking room, still had a stale smokey air to it that was a turn-off. Next, we found that the remote for the TV was not operating, and neither was your pool heater. We knew in advance, but were disappointed nevertheless, that your hotel does not offer a complimentary breakfast, even while charging considerably more than all other hotels in the area, all of whom DO offer a complimentary continental breakfast.. Moreover, your nightly dog fee is double what the other pet-friendly hotels in the area charge. As a result, if we stay in Santee again, we will choose a more reasonably-priced pet-friendly hotel, one that has clean and fresh rooms and one that serves a complimentarybreakfast.
