We recently stayed here and Tara (manager) was able to accommodate our group of 20 rooms with a month's notice. The rooms have not seen any physical upkeep since it was a Ramada Inn years ago -- that is sad because the staff is super friendly and tries very hard. Since we stay in Santee once a year in conjunction...

This was a comfortable and clean hotel and very friendly service. Beds are very comfortable and a great price. I will stay there again if I am ever traveling that way. I will recommend this place to family and friends.

I stopped here on March 1, 2016 after a long day of driving. I chose it because it was the first motel off the interstate. Check in and out went smooth. The desk clerks were both efficient and polite. I had room 147. It was a large room with one queen bed. It also had a small couch and a...

I stayed here only because it was the only hotel with a vacancy at 10 in the evening. The other hotels in the area charge $20 to $50 more yet they were full. That alone is telling. I couldn't find the TA reviews on this motel or I would have kept going. I found them later under B&B. This isn't...

You would be better off sleeping in your car! Pillows smell like other people...light bulbs were burnt out....room was dirty...TOILET OVERFLOWED....staff slow and has an attitude....doesn't look like their website! Guess the pics were taken 40 years ago. They say...family owned, clean rooms....Mr & Mrs Whitten, are you still alive?

Place was a dump! dirty floors, stains on bed and walls, bathroom is dirty and lights don't work. You can hear everything in rooms next to you. Spend the extra 20 or 30 dollars for a better stay at a different hotel. I should have read reviews before staying so now your warned!

Well coming down 95 we saw the bill boards with the nice smiling couple telling everyone they managed the Whitten Inn. So we decided to give it a try. It was dated but clean and didn't smell so that was a plus. Then we found the medical waste in the trash can. Freshly used syringe, alcohol pad in a prescription...
