“Better than you'd think”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

Inexpensive but clean and convenient. It's right off 95 and it's good quality for the bucks. No coffee in the room but it has a fridge and microwave and there's a Waffle House right down the road. I had misplaced my toiletries and they were able to supply me with a toothbrush, toothpaste and razor.

Room Tip: There's not a lot to choose from. It's right off 95 and all rooms seem identical.

If you saw this motel's somewhat older looking brick building, tiny reception area, somewhat cluttered inner office, and supplies and stuff piled-up, all for the first time, you might be tempted to move on and not take a chance on staying there. You would be making a mistake.

I stayed there twice around mid-June 2012 ($49.50 plus tax, one person). My room was perfect: clean, orderly, of sufficient size, fridge, microwave, nice HD TV, table and chairs, and an older couch. The bathroom was spotless, and I liked the body wash/shampoo dispensers attached to the shower wall. There was no carpet odor or heavy dust lingering in the room, which I have experienced far too often in many other motels, regardless of the price.

Overall, it seems the owners and managers seem to make certain that you will be comfortable and happy with your room, even though other areas in the motel may not be 100% perfect. But who cares? I'm paying for the room, not the reception area.

I stayed there again one week later on my return trip. As an appreciation of my business, they took $5.00 off the usual charge. Although that may not seem like much, it is a 10% reduction, which I appreciated--especially since not one other motel chain where I have stayed many times ever showed similar appreciation for my business.

If you're looking for a clean and comfortable stay to at a nice rate, and can live without the fancy extras, you should give Southern Inn in Lumberton NC a try.

Please note: no continental breakfast (but many restaurants nearby), and no public computer station.

We stopped at the North Carolina Welcome center for a discount motel book & found the Southern Inn. It's just off I 95 and close to breakfast or dinner. We had a coupon for $32 for the night. Nothing fancy but clean and comfortable. You can't beat the price.

Family of four, stayed for a week while visiting extended family. Very courteous staff. Enjoyed the comfortable beds, microwave and fridge. Internet was a plus. Two downfalls, no in room coffee maker and the carpets desperately need cleaned. I could not walk barefoot, the floor felt sticky with dirt and my ten month old would have dirty knees almost immediately after getting out of his bath.
