Family had a chance to get away for a few days. This motel was selected, never been there before. Called and spoke to Joe about rates. Called back and made reservations. The time on the phone with Joe was outstanding in all ways. Joe asked what time would want to check in, normal time between 2 PM and 3 PM.... More

This motel is a great value. The rooms are small, but very clean, with fridges, microwaves, coffee maker etc... The owner and (I think) his son where very helpful with places to eat, where to jog etc... it's a great location - you can walk everywhere from the motel. I'd stay there again in a heartbeat. I'd much rather support... More

The Inn at River Oaks is unlike any other hotel in Southport. It is smaller than the big chain hotels but it is more cozy and intimate. The rooms are large and very clean! The staff really makes you feel like you are part of their family and go above and beyond to make sure you are comfortable. It is... More

Ever want to sit and enjoy the breeze under the spreading oaks? This is the place for you. Rooms are clean, a bit small but with all the amenities. A great place to stay in Southport. And no, I am not on the staff but my wife and I have stayed here many times.

We booked this place for a weekend in Southport and were not disappointed. It was small but that was okay we didn't spend that much time inside anyway. I would happily go back to this place for another weekend stay!

Once again we had a great trip. Gary, Justin and Jeanine took great care of us. Chad and Joe were playing Golf. Sure. How was the Masters? If you are looking for a clean, comfortable and resonably priced room this is the place. Weather not the best but the shopping was. Walked everywhere. Shout out to Tim and Mango too.... More

My husband and I stayed here this weekend to tour the area where "Safe Haven" was filmed. This room added to the charm of our trip! It was cute and quaint and the perfect setting for our weekend romantic get-a-way. The staff is amazing and passionate about the town of Southport. The inn is within walking distance to the downtown... More

We stayed here this past weekend. Our first time. It is a cozy place. I love that you can walk and not have to drive a lot. We stayed in Room 8 on Saturday. On Sunday we spent all day at the beach. On our return to our room... The cold water to the shower would not turn off...we called... More

Our family stayed in the efficiency apartment this weekend and were pleasantly surprised. It had all the comforts of home at a fantastic price. CLEAN and owner was very friendly and welcoming. 3 TVs/ DVD players, 2 double beds, fouton and full kitchen for less than a basic chain hotel room. Location was fabulous as well. We will definitely return!
