I stayed here in January 2021. I asked for a quiet smoking room and was pleased that any smoking room was even available. I always travel with cleaning wipes and wipe down hotel rooms when I arrive and although you can tell the place is a little older, the furniture and remote and phone had surprisingly little dirt and dust present. Anytime you get a smoking room there is a chance it will smell of smoke or animals. There was a tinge of animal smell in the room, but a little room spray and I was fine with the whole experience. The room was spacious, quiet, and bed was comfortable. Car is parked right outside your room and there are no people above you so you don;t have to worry about upstairs neighbors waking or disturbing you. Front desk staff was very friendly and are always present in lobby. I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at Southern Lodge for the first time in 4 or 5 years and it was still a very nice place. Only drawback was the breakfast buffet was closed due to the Covid plague. Definitely will go back the next time we are in the area.

The check in manager was very nice, the room adequate and the free breakfast just enough to get us on our way. It is an older place and it shows the wear and tear, it appears they are trying to keep it neat and clean. The carpets need to be cleaned.

Check in was rude! We had booked already online through Hotels.com based on decent reviews. We put down 3 guests and two beds online. My husband went inside and they said they had to charge extra because of our son? I’ve never heard of such a thing on a two queen bed room. Get to the room and oh my gosh.. the smell alone would knock you out. Smelled like they poured cheap deodorizer to mask the smell. Turned on the heat and it smelled like urine. Stains everywhere.. I didn’t even want to sleep on the beds. As someone who works in property management.. these people should be ashamed on the condition of this dump. Would never ever recommend. See photos to see a taste of what you’ll get.

I visit this location October 20, 2018 building looks nice from outside, but beware of the inside. I check-in, went to get something to eat, I was gone about two hours then I come back, to view the room for the first time, only to take my shoes off to a fully wet carpet, upon calling the front desk the lady refuse to give me her name, I informed her that the carpet was wet, she told me, that its raining outside and all there carpet are wet in all rooms, I requested a refund, she refused, advised me, that I had to wait until morning to get a refund. Please note she did not offer me another room are attempted to resolve my problem, as if this was normal, and I had a problem with the way it all was handled, did I say she refuse to give me her name or the owners or manager of the property, I paid with my credit card so I dispute payment went to the Travel Lodge next store, GREAT! I would never recommend this motel to anyone, BEWARE! Still this day I still have not gotten a phone call from these people shame on you.
