Southern Oaks is a nice motel with fast check in and check out. The staff was very helpful and accommodating and helped me when I arrived to find that Expedia had led me astray. I have a very bad back and knees and cannot climb stairs unless they are very shallow. The steps to the upper level are way too...

Only a mile from the main attractions and restaurants, super quiet and most importantly with the MOST FRIENDLY STAFF EVER.

Bare floors enable listening to all walking within a hundred feet. The free breakfast included empty milk and coffee dispensers, and I was lucky enough to get the last bowl for cereal. The...

We were very pleased with the cleanliness. My husband wore white socks and walked around quite a bit throughout our stay and when he took them off..they were white and clean. The breakfast was outstanding. The entire personnel were pleasant and friendly. Would definitely stay again. Thank you.
