I was looking for a place to stay to visit both lighthouses. Aside from a B&B this was the next best thing. When we got here, we had to check in across the street at the B&B. Once in the room, we had this bad odor that I thought may have been plumbing problems. After a run to wal-mart, we got some air fresheners and coffee filters. The air conditioner was quite noisy and the gitlfriend thought it sounded like a jet engine everytime. I like it cold so it ran quite a bit. That thing could have been waking me up during the night too. It is a small town so don't expect extravagance. They do a good job of keeping it clean. Many places within walking distance. It wasn't till after picking the place I found out Southport was used in several movies.
