We arrived after midnight and driving all day. Checked three other places which were all sold out. This was the only place in town with a room (in the area) and so we took it. The room was clean, quiet and the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast included and free wifi. We hit the road again well rested and very... More

Great value. Chose this place mainly on the reviews and ranking. I tend to throw out the very negative reviews that all have a theme of bad service,which I believe would never be the case with this management and staff. The reviewers that throw small photos of a piece of wallpaper turned back or one star it for a stain... More

I'm planning on being in town two nights only in that hotel one night more than willing to pay the price just don't understand why they can't invest a little bit of money back into the rooms and no I'm not looking for the Ritz if I was I would have paid more money

We chose this hotel because we had a coupon and the clerk I spoke with on the phone was so straightforward and nice. The room was comfortable and had everything we needed. The breakfast was totally fine though without the more fancy foods one sometimes sees. This is not a chain apparently, and the manager Ieesha was so personable that... More

Stayed here because it was on our way, the price was fair and the reviews(for the most part) were very good. The rooms were clean, the bed comfortable and it was quiet . The breakfast had a nice variety. Yes, it is somewhat dated and not a five star, but if you are looking for a 5 star go ahead... More

In September, 2014 I posted a glowing following of the Southern Lodge. I'm now wishing that I could retract that review based on the room our traveling companions were assigned during the last week January 2015! These folks are just too polite to be openly critical of a hotel. I feel I have the authority to write on their behalf... More

Stopped in for 1 night on a trip from FL to CT via Charlotte NC. We were arriving late and leaving early so we had no interest in a pool, fitness room, etc. Southern Lodge is the basic, quick overnight place we were looking for. Exit 145A is very busy with 8-10 hotels and a number of restaurants. We wanted... More

We got a special price of $56 before taxes. The room was clean and a good size, The desk staff were very friendly and efficient. We met Shelby and Ieesha(or a similar name) and both were really nice and made us feel welcomed. I liked the bathroom set up because the sink with a large counter was separate from the... More

The price on the sign of 49.95 was only.if you checked in at 7 am and out by 5 pm the same day. There were burns all over the tub, toilet wouldn't flush and the TV did not work. They also did not honor discount for firefighters which all 3 of us are. We also have recently stayed in Daytona... More
