Hubby and I stayed one night on July 23rd 1. Would not honor internet rate or rate on flashing billboard. 2. Room reeked of smoke 3. Covers had cigarette burns 4. Housekeeping entered our room twice although *do not disturb* sign was on door 5. Charged my card $5 more than what I was quoted 6. Didn't try to wow... More

The bad first: pay in cash or your credit card will be charged an extra fee. Do not use Priceline or any other booking internet company, another fee added and do not stay on Saturday or Sunday or you will be slammed with another $30 for the weekend rate, even tough the lodge is barely full. Odd cancellation policy, therefore... More

There are a lot of motels in Orangeburg. I stayed in a different one two years ago but it was no longer open. (It was fine when I stayed but later reviews indicated it had gone downhill badly.) I picked Southern primary because of its ground floor rooms and near door parking. I was absolutely amazed when I got to... More

Stopped here on way to Florida, arrived around 1 am. Got in and out quickly. The staff was really nice . Room was clean. Breakfast was simple but included in our stay. Check out was easy and back on the road! I would stay again.

Going on the advice of tripadvisor, I booked two consecutive nights at southern lodge on hwy 601 just off I-26. The servicing staff was excellent but I had more surprises coming. When we got our room, it was dimly lite and I guess to hide the dirt and dust. Sitting at the desk with my lap top, I felt something... More

My sister and I stopped here coming home from a funeral. The people were courteous and friendly. Didn't care for the breakfast, frozen stuff! Nothing very appealing. Hard to get in and out of it. Would stay again if up this way.

The staff was so pleasant, the room was very clean, and the motel is well maintained. The breakfast was a lite meal and the best orange juice I ever had. The room was clean and well maintained. The mattress was firm , but sleep very well.

When looking for a hotel, of course we turned to TripAdvisor. This hotel was rated number one, and for what we found to be obvious reasons. True southern hospitality, comfortable and roomy rooms, clean, very fairly priced, and a great breakfast. All for a very low price and especially compared to other hotels in the area. For breakfast you had... More
