My wife and I were put up in the Southwood Inn during a business trip to Selmer, Tennessee. My first impression from the outside was a cheap and outdated single level motor inn that would be popular with transients. I was glad to be wrong. Our room, while not elegant, was spacious and comfortable. Everything was clean and the bed... More

When I arrived the man was nice and gave me a room quick the check in took me all of 60secs. The man at the front desk also told me what time they start serving breakfast and that it was the best in town. When I got to the room it was nice & clean, they even had a little... More

Staying in a small town with no large hotels we relied on a recommendation of a friend. The motel was old school with outside entrances. Prices were very reasonable and to our surprise there was a breakfast served between 6-8 a.m. They also allow pets for an additional fee.

We stayed at the Southwood Inn for a week while visiting our daughter and her family. The room was large and clean but furnishings dated and worn. Housekeeping was very good. Internet did not have a good firewall. Consequently, there were a lot of pop-ups and viruses that we had to keep deleting. It was very disappointing to find the... More

After reading rave reviews about Southwoods breakfast, we decided to stop there last night. It is a nice property with pull up rooms, an old "Mom and Pop" redone. When we checked in we asked about the breakfast. We were told that we picked a bad time to stop - that there would be no breakfast, maybe some rolls and... More

Great place for Teams! Stayed on return trip to Iowa from Daytona College Nationals! Great price, service and comfort. Easy Access for Charter Bus! Beds and linens smelled like Downy and the Customer Service was excellent! Home cooked breakfast in the morning was great! Kuddos this is a winner!

We stayed at the Southwood Inn after playing a gig in Selmer. The rooms were very clean, comfortable beds, and the welcome pack was very sweet.. As musicians getting up early isn't the norm so we missed breakfast but Lisa, the owner, more than generously offered to make us breakfast before we headed out. It was delicious!! I absolutely suggest... More

We found the hotel to be comfortable, and the staff was friendly. Of course, we were there in December, so there weren't too many customers. It was rainy and going to be icing up the next day, so we had to cut our trip short, but we did enjoy the stay, and the breakfast they served was very good.

Pulled in late on the motorcycle. Friendly, Nice, and Clean. Small Frig & microwave in our room. Freshly painted. Grounds are immaculate. Has a great travel center complete with map of area and U.S. Has a laundry and parking for RV's. The price couldn't be better either.

We came from NY state to Tennessee and reserved the room at the Southwood months ahead of time. Choose the motel only on past online reviews. Upon approach we were a little concerned because we saw the sign and the motel is positioned behind a "rustic" gas station. While driving up the driveway, the motel was looking better and better....
