If you are looking for a clean place to spend the night Southside Motel is a good choice. It is a no frills place, no soundproofed walls, and without any updated decor. But it does have a microwave and fridge in the room. The reception staff was courteous and efficient.

The room was clean and the staff went out of their way to make sure I always had clean towels, the room and was clean and that I had coffee supplies. The motel owners... More

Stayed here a couple of times when working in the area. Owners are very helpful. Terrific prices and central location. Rooms in the back of the hotel offer quiet and restful sleep. No traffic noise and overlook the river

I stay here anytime I am working in the area. The owners are friendly, helpful, and operate a very clean, well maintained motel. If you need anything, they try to assist and make your stay as comfortable as possible. I use my computer to do work at night, and the added bonus is having a very fast WiFi connection, faster...

We stayed over the July 4th holiday weekend (2 nights) and had a good experience for the most part. We had one of the smallest rooms (2 doubles) with refrigerator and microwave. No in-room coffee maker but the owner had coffee ready in the small lobby at any time you requested...which we did at 6am. Apparently, the larger rooms do... More

Small family owned motel. The room was clean and sheets and towels were nice and clean. We have stayed here a few times over the years. The price is right for visiting family where you just need a bed and shower. No frills but clean and safe.

Boyfriend and I decided to take a weekend trip out of town with the kayaks. My neighbor had stayed at this motel before and said very good things about her experience so we decided to try it for ourselves. The owner is delightful and very accommodating. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The room prices are extremely reasonable, therefore... More

I've stayed here a many times in the past. It's the only motel with a pool and it's always clean. Would bring my kids here n have a ball all day. I stay here every time I'm in the area. Always clean and the owners are excellent. Guess u can't help the flies since it's so close
