Not the Hilton, however, clean and very acceptable - Retired Airline Captain - know hotels! It is hands on management - boss opened the door for us and was very professional. Staff could not be nicer - real overboard kindness. Area seemed very quiet from the room. Your car is right outside the door - this is my priority issue... More

Ok, here it is... if you want upscale, if you're picky, or if you're afraid of diversity or just being in the South, then this is not your place. But if you're on the road & you're tired, looking for a clean, independently owned value, with a comfortable bed, free Internet & TV, close to the Hwy Exit... with a... More

We stopped here this year on our way down to Florida when we just needed a place to sleep, and we definitely weren't sorry. From the first phone call to make the reservation the receptionist was so friendly and polite. Then when we arrived she was very helpful. The rooms are nothing fancy, but they were clean and had many... More

The Southern Lodge isn't fancy but is a great value for the money. The location, in a "slurb" right off of I-26, isn't inspiring, but it is super-convenient, and the price is right. The real strength of the Lodge, however, is the staff, particularly the front-desk clerks. Astreia met us at the door with a big smile, gave detailed instructions... More

I do NOT recommend this hotel if you're looking for something decent. I've been there about 5 times in 2015; some rooms aren't as bad as others but you never know what you're gonna get! Old box TVs are in most of the rooms & they do not clean thoroughly. Look at the pictures to show you some of what... More

I knew this would be the place when the Front desk gal Gave us a warm welcome by opening the front door for us. She was Very accommodating and the room was VERY... More

We stayed one night as a layover on our way south. The staff was very friendly, the room was clean, very nice for a budget hotel, decor was a little dated, plenty of restaurants nearby, I wouldn't hesitate to stay again

Not fancy - but they try harder than any fancy place we have ever stayed. We were greeted with a handshake this morning and shown to the breakfast room. Every thing is marked - so it left nothing to chance on how to microwave things or prepare what you want. The selection is not huge - but it was fresh.... More

Although staff was friendly, the room was horrible, smelly, and nasty! This is the St. Matthews/601 location. I book through a 3rd party online months in advance but got a call closer to my stay and was told they were overbooked and I could get a king room because I only had two people. I looked online to see what... More
