Travelling north with a pet is not usually a problem when you know there is a Best Western nearby, unless you want to stay in Santee where they are not pet friendly.
Since we were unable to stay in Santee, we stayed at the Best Western in Walterboro. So far this is the nicest we have stayed in from Savannah GA to Florence SC.
The room was well maintained, the continental/hot breakfast buffet good and the staff friendly.
When we arrived around 10:30 p.m. check in was easy, unfortunately we were given a room on the inside of the rows (even numbered rooms) away from the parking area. Having just come off of foot surgery, this was not acceptable, so we went back to the desk and asked for a room change which was granted. We were now near the parking area and grassy area for our dog.
The room itself was very clean and looked like it had been painted recently, however the bathroom could have used a bit something more, like bleach on the shower surround; I'm guessing it was stained, but it looked moldy or mildewed around the bottom half. Actually getting into the bathroom and closing the door was also a challenge since the door practically opened into the toilet. Aside from this the room was well stocked with towels and washcloths. The mini fridge and microwave were an added bonus as we had soda, water and some food to keep cold; we figured we'd have to fill Ziplocs with ice. The A/C worked well and did not have a musty smell as some do, in fact, the room smelled fresh.
The hot options (eggs, sausage and 2 flavors of Belgian waffles) on the continental breakfast buffet were welcome items. The bread, biscuits, muffins and pastries were fresh. Since I don't drink hot beverages (coffee or tea) I went for the milk, which could have been colder. Even so, we thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast.
We would definitely stay here again, it is very easy off and on I-95! If fact we will be travelling south in a few days and will do what we can to stay here again.
