Excellent! Nice hot breakfast, great service. CLEAN!!
Will definitely stay there again.
Staff was friendly. Love that the room had hardwood floors instead of carpet. Highly recommend to families and people traveling with dogs.

Was not sure initially by this particular hotel. Did my research and read reviews, but at the end of the day you never know til you go. Boy was my expectations blown away. Aside from the distance and a few missing components big chains have, this hotel was more than worth it. Rooms were nicely decorated with the right amount of furniture although a tad small. The bed was extremely comfortable even better than some of the garbage at chain hotels. Staff was amazing, super friendly! And I can't even begin to tell you about the breakfast! We stayed at a room near the lobby so drying breakfast conversations could be heard...light sleepers beware. Other. Than that a superb hotel in my book.

The hotel was very clean, and I loved the hardwood floors. The location was great as was the price. The staff went above and beyond to help us make sure we used our time well touring the city,and even planning for a future trip. The breakfast was terrific - more than I expected. Plus, it's a family business - not a chain.

Staff was friendly and accommodating, the room was clean, plenty of hot water, and ice cold air. The complimentary breakfast is delicious.

The hotel is conveniently located from downtown, and within walking distance to the red train station. This accessibility allows for a pleasant comute around town without the hassles of trying to find parking. We couldn't have asked for a better stay while visiting.

We spent last weekend there. We had a bit of a unique situation with our dog, since we ended up having to stay until evening. The staff went above and beyond the call of duty to help us accommodate our dog in a unique situation. The rooms are clean and safe with no pet odors thanks to the laminate flooring (a nice touch for a pet friendly hotel). They have a clean dog park that we used daily. The hotel is at the edge of a neighborhood with some beautiful historic cottages that made for a nice walk every morning with the dog. The pool is much bigger than the average hotel pool. Their breakfast is great with lots of options (way better than any other hotel breakfast I've had). We will be staying there again next year. Thanks Donna and Clay for helping us with Chance!!! (our dog)!! To top everything off, they are only a 5-10 minute drive to the beach, that allow dogs and costs less than the other hotels that we looked at that were further from the beach and didn't have breakfast. Best staff in the world across the board. Everyone was great!!! I am rating the rooms as very good rather than excellent only because they weren't plush and gorgeously decorated, but they were totally sufficient and clean. The beds were very comfortable. I think they are in the process of adding decor and new mirrors and stuff that will beautify the rooms. The rooms were still great.

Thank you so much for your kind comments, and for letting us know about the creaking noise in the beds. We have done some investigating and found there were adjustments that needed to be made to some of the bed frames, and our maintenance department has completed re-testing in every room to be sure the problem is resolved. We are very happy to know you enjoyed the breakfast, and we will be looking forward to welcoming you back to visit with us here at Southern Oaks Inn. Thank you again.
