Quiet in a neighborhood area.
The hotel was small and quietly tucked away in a neighborhood. Not too much around as far as food but they did have a bar with bar food. I am just not a fan of bar food. The bar was good for a drink or two. I asked the receptionist for a nice " steak and fine dining menu" she told me there was and Olive Garden down the way. Hmmm, nope. She was not familiar at all with the area so not much help. Luckily, my son works in the area and sent us to a great steak place and then to the best BBQ ever, Phils' BBQ. We went there twice. There is also a Mimi's Cafe for breakfast extraordinaire. We found a nice park, Santee Lakes, within walking distance. Good place to stay if not into the beach crowds. Room was clean but lots of smokers stood outside of our room to smoke. Ask for a room away from the main walkway.

Great place to stay for playing the course the next day. My only complaint is that the bed was incredibly uncomfortable. I think I got about 4 hours of sleep.

Good stay, but bring your coffee pot
The staff at check-in was great, that made my staff much more comfortable. I was given an upstairs room, no elevator so she gladly changed it to a downstairs room. While walking to my room, it was 10:30 pm on Christmas Eve and I was exhausted, I could hear a baby was screaming. Yes, it was next door to my room, ugh! I went back to the office and asked for another room, which was happily changed. I couldn't have asked for better customer service. The only area of improvement I would make about this hotel was that there was no coffee pot in the room. It would have been nice to have coffee at 4 AM when I was up and getting ready. It was offered in the office, but who wants to get dressed to go get coffee???
