Of all the hotels on the side of an interstate with limited services that I have stayed in, this gets 5 stars. It is obviously not a "5 star hotel", however. We have stayed here twice with our dog. It is right off the interstate, has a big field across from the parking lot for

We stayed at this property in February 2019. We specifically selected this hotel because it has a restaurant and bar; after driving 9 hours, we did not want to have to go out and search out a restaurant for dinner. We also were glad we had a reservation in one of their nicer

Check in and check out staff friendly, great breakfast bar and friendly and helpful lady taking care of it. Staff recommend a local Italian place that delivered for dinner, very good choice! Room clean, only major draw back is that rooms are interior and have a large gap under

We had an unpleasant experience at the HInn in Santee, SC Jan 16, 2019. We were misled about the rate at this motel, plus the AAA discount. We will just not stay there again, and will advise our friends not to. The young lady was totally non-empathetic and incredibly stern. I'd

Hello Bluezkat, Thank you for leaving us your review and for making us a part your visit here in Santee. We are grateful that you've chosen the Holiday Inn to host you. As always, we wanted nothing more but to ensure your experience turn as positive as possible. Though it made me smile that you gave us a 'perfect 5' in terms of how great your sleep was and convenient our location is, I'm sorry to leave you hesitant in coming back to us next time. I understand that you were bummed with the room rate and how you felt our staff did her best to help. I'm sorry that this stay didn't go as perfectly as planned, Bluezkat. Don't worry, I took the necessary steps to ensure our management gets to read your post and be discussed amongst all concerned staff. We are always on the lookout for ways to make your experience memorable. Reviews such as this goes a long way in identifying areas where we can improve. I also dropped a message via your inbox to further talk about your review. We may not have gotten off the right foot but I'm positive to make it better for your next stay. Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your stay with us. Best regards, Frank A. Case Manager IHGService

Family member stopped here and was told confirmed reservation would not be honored. When questioned why???, told leave or police will be called. Still charged for stay and had to contact corporate who said they can't charge you if you didn't stay so have to fight for refund.

Hello wilsone8, I'm concerned to learn about your family member's troubles with the reservation and that we missed the mark in terms of service level. Thanks for bringing this to attention and considering to stay with us. This is shared with the management and I also sent you a private message to get more information. Regards, Jillian I Case Manager IHGService

I am not sure. It maybe possible. If you are using the trip advisor app you can type in Santee, South Carolina and look for reception halls, or other restaurants that take reservations. I did enjoy The Captain's Quarters. If you aware coming to the souther US from the U.K. In late August, PLEASE stop and buy strong sun screen and mosquito repellent. I hope you enjoy the eclipse!

I don't know how to answer this but I do know if I were in your shoes, I'd be talking to the GM directly at the hotel and if I got no satisfaction there, I'd contact corporate! That's the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard! Now depending on how early you want to check in, I'd possibly just rent for an extra night and do check in for one day earlier! Good luck! (And update please, because how your situation is handled could certainly affect my staying there again!)

"Don't count on reservation being honored"
"End rooms are best."
"we had a pet and I believe all pets are on the 4th floor which I heard was not best for dog lovers"
"Stayed on the fourth floor which was quiet"
