A few weeks ago, my husband and I spent the night at this quaint motor inn. We were traveling from Monroe to Sunset Beach, and wanted to spend some time in Southport, after watching the movie Safe Haven. We planned to stay in one of the B&B's, but they were all full. After reading the reviews of the Inn at River Oaks, we decided to give it a try rather than stay at a chain hotel, as we like to support local businesses. What a great decision!! When we arrived, Joe and Zeke greeted us in the parking lot. They were friendly, fun and very accommodating. We immediately felt welcome and felt as if we had known them for years! The inn is extremely clean. It's a pretty setting, under big old oaks and is very convenient to the "downtown" area and the waterfront/yacht basin. We never moved our car as we could walk everywhere we wanted to go. Joe and Zeke gave us some great tips on places to go to eat and drink some good beer!
It's a very friendly little town and everyone we talked to seemed to know & really like these guys.
The inn is like stepping back into the 50's, which is what gives it such character. Again, it is really, really clean!! We're very happy we chose to stay here, and when we return to Southport again, we will definitely stay here!
