Wow!!! When we arrived, Bianca and Iyonna held the door open for us, introduced themselves and "checked us in." Apples and oranges were a welcoming treat! We stayed in room 101 with one king bed. This motel is on one floor and you park right at your door:)! It was EXTREMELY CLEAN, having had no smoking or pets in our... More

On the way to Savannah Ga from Buffalo NY we decided to stop for the night. I usually stay at a chain hotel but I found a coupon for the Southern Lodge and decided to try it. What a pleasant surprise. It is kind of "old school" motel, but the cleanliness and service were 5 star! The staff were so... More

I have stayed here about twice a year since summer 2013 and I have always had a consistently good experience, regardless of when I have stayed. The staff, Ieesha and her 'mini-me' daughter, Iyanna (happy birthday), Tanika and Minita are all wonderful. They are professional, friendly and helpful. This is my go-to place to stay in Orangeburg. I always feel... More

The hotel was fairly clean for $60 a night it wasn't bad. The staff was very friendly and nice. But the walls has marks on them and the TV remote was duct taped, and the shower squealed loudly the whole time it was on... etc... Small things but still not 5star! The breakfast was the oddest thing to me! You... More

We had a great stay!!!!! The staff was great and the friendliest ever. Tanika and Ieesha were wonderful and very helpful. The rooms were decent. The breakfast was really good. We will definitely stay again if ever in the area.

I booked this hotel based on reviews here on TripAdvisor. I really have to question the credibility of the reviewers because there is no way this could be called the Number 1 Hotel in Orangeburg. The gals at check in are just as others describe, and that is probably the only positive thing I can say. The room's foul odor... More

First, let me give HUGE KUDOS to front desk staff members, Shelby and Ieesha (her name is pronounced "eye-ee-sha")! I had never even heard of Southern Lodge, so I stopped by on Monday afternoon just to look at the place. Shelby was very friendly and knowledgeable. I explained that I had seen this hotel on Hotels.com and saw a great... More

Stayed one night while passing through and stayed here based on the reviews that it was clean. Well that's about all I have to say about this motel - it was clean. The furnishings were really old and not in good condition. The area did not feel really safe to me. It felt more like a place that was used... More

We recently were in town for my wife's high school reunion and did not want to make the 2+ hours return trip home after the reunion. After reading many of the reviews on Trip Advisor we decided to give Southern Lodge a try. It was raining when we arrived and as I was walking to the office to check in... More

The motel was very nice and the room clean and comfortable. As noted above the evening and morning desk clerks were exceptional in their friendliness. The breakfast was good also. Very well thought out basket of toiletries in the room.
