Great find! Receptionists were very attentive and friendly! The room was clean, had small Refrig, microwave and a good assortment of toiletries. Bkfast was well displayed, clean and plentiful at 5 am....It is a little gold mine. Will go back again:)

This little gem sits between another independent hotel/motel and a HoJo. I had perishables I needed to refrigerate and wanted to make sure we had a good night's rest after an all-day drive with another one planned the following day. We typically stay at Hyatt or others of that level, but if pressed, will stay at a Comfort Inn or... More

We took a chnace on this hotel after driving 11 hours and needing to stop for the night. We usually make bookings ahead and do our homework, but we weren't sure how far we'd get in a day. The price was good for the area and there were several places to eat nearby. The building and furnishings were old and... More

On our latest journey from northwestern Ohio to south-central Florida, we stopped near the halfway point in Orangeburg, SC. Prior to departing on our near 19 hour journey I consulted Trip Advisor for the best rated hotels and found great reviews for the Southern Lodge. After driving for nearly 10 hours, in Labor Day traffic, we were ready to call... More

Haven't stayed at a "non-chain" hotel for a long time. We selected the Southern Lodge because of the good reviews and they weren't wrong. It was a very nice, clean, large room with a very comfortable leather chair! Tanika welcomed us in the evening and Ieesha welcomed us to breakfast in the morning which was delicious and very nicely displayed.... More

The room was reeking of air freshener to mask the cigarette smoke smell. Im a non-smoker and know the difference. The rough indoor / outdoor carpet was very slippery due to the high humidity in the moldy smelling room. The lighting in the room was very dark and you could feel the clammy high humidity on your skin. The bathroom... More

We enjoyed our stay at Southern Lodge. The room could use some paint and updates but it was clean and didn't smell. The women who worked the front desk were great and really friendly. They made the stay very enjoyable. We would stay there again.

I stopped here as a last minute discussion. I had run into bad weather traveling. I usually stay at the Hampton, but didn't have the funds for that, this time. My rate was very inexpensive. I felt safe because of the cameras, I told the clerk, I was alone, and asked if it was safe, she said it was and... More
