Clean if spare standard room with friendly evening check-in. We were apprehensive about lesser expensive motels in 95 degree summer weather driving north from Savannah when we came upon Rice Planters. Good initial signs: "clean room sign" (OK it is just a claim but at least they felt it worth claiming), Trip Advisor sticker, guest book. Insect-free (not that easy... More

An Easter weekend road trip from VA to Florida, a journey we expected to complete in a single stage. Half way we were exhausted and needed sleep. Most of the motels in the area, being 8pm Good Friday were either full of had trebled their prices with the exception of the Rice Planters Inn who offered us a double room... More

We have stayed at the Rice Planters several times on our way to Florida, and it was always basic but clean. However, it was awful this time. The woman at the desk was grumpy, and the room was dirty and musty. They used to give us a voucher for breakfast at the Waffle House but we were told that they... More

I don't like giving negative reviews but I'll make an exception in the case of this hotel. My husband and I stayed here reluctantly in mid April on our way down to Florida. Almost every hotel was booked except this one because of some event and snow birders on their way back home. The "lobby" was an untidy place full... More

Checked in during a rain shower around 6 pm when everyone else was I think. Lots of small hotels in the area. Best one for the money and only $5 extra for Brutus. Very basic but clean and nice fluffy pillows and good coffee at the office.

I have a home in Western NC and a second home in Kissimmee, FL and have stayed at Rice Planters Inn several dozen times as it is a good stopping point on the way south. My stays have been between 2009 and 2015. The price has always been the lowest and has remained the same for 6 years. I had... More

DO NOT, under ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, stay at this property. We had been traveling for hundreds of miles and all of the other motels along I-95 were booked. The clerk at a nearby Quality Inn recommended that we try the Rice Planters Inn, and he did so with a smirk, which I didn't understand at the time. Now I do. We... More

Great staff, very friendly! Not a clean motel at all! We found several spiders in the bathrooms and all around the room. We figured it would be good enough....the dead cockroach in the corner killed the stay. We understand that this is not a 5 star restaurant and for the money you are not going to get a top notch...
