Classic style Southern motel with clean comfortable rooms, excellent service, charming environment, homemade breakfast options. Not far from the historic district with a free shuttle to the tour trolley. A nice change from the big hotel chains!

We looked at reviews on Hotels.com and were expecting the 8.8/10 experience written about. While the staff was friendly, this is most definitely a budget motel. We paid $200/nt with all the fees and left after one night. The room was bare-bones and unclean with hairs on the towels that weren't ours. There were soap dispensers (not bars) over the sink and in the shower. Minimal furniture that was oddly mis-matched. When we arrived there was a loud group of guests and visitors at tables outside of our room swearing, yelling, drinking and smoking and we could hear them in our room. On a positive note, the breakfast the next morning was tasty and plentiful and the front desk were polite and apologetic for our experience. Had the rate been $60/nt my expectations would have been more appropriate.....

We are used to the nationally known hotels. But we were in a bind. Hurricane coming and we are locals who live in a bad flood zone Called the hotel who gave us an awesome locals/hurricane rate plus waved all other extra charges. Breakfast was not frozen n shipped in but rather was home cooked and was surprisingly good. Room was beyond clean and accommodating super pet friendly with a special ares as a dog park

We've stayed here a number of times as we are just a few hours away. We came for the lights this time. Nice for a long weekend or travelers. The staff is always very nice. We were in the new building this time. The room was very, very clean. Comfortable size. The breakfast has many choices and is a big full breakfast served to you. They also have a shuttle into town which is so helpful. Leave your car and go. We stay here mostly in the winter as we stay on the beach when the ocean is warm enough to swim.

Check-in was available via an app (which I chose not to use). Check-in was very quick and staff was friendly and helpful - even had fresh cookies for guests. Room was clean and comfortable with good tv, wifi, and climate control. The motel is sandwiched between two major roads so traffic noise was noticeable but I always keep the climate control fan on high to drown out extraneous noise. Room was spacious although a foldable luggage holder would have been a blessing since I had to keep my luggage open on a couch. Blow-dryer (as is often the case in motels) was worthless. Water pressure was poor and, if you are not used to old Florida water, you may notice a sulfur odor which I only noticed from the sink spigot. Refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker all working. The best was the breakfast with was a throwback to pre-COVID times. Limited hot selection but good and plenty of cold options. It was a little strange to eat in a large dining room with metal flatware and a choice of using Styrofoam cups or those old plastic "glasses" we all drank out of in college dining halls or mess halls. The location is VERY convenient to the historic section and the beaches with plenty of fast food around and a free shuttle to the historic section.

I can't say enough great things about this place. It's always a risk booking online at a place I've never seen. This place is adorable. Rooms are clean, shower is great, beds are comfortable, fluffy towels and Tons of pillows! AC kicks!! The staff is wonderful. Everyone is so friendly. Kimberly was so helpful with advice and timing of shuttle. The free shuttle to town is a great value! It runs until 10pm and no need to worry about parking! I will be back!

We came to Southern Oaks Inn for a long weekend with our 2 dogs. They were incredibly pet friendly. A dog bed and bowls were provided in the room, plus they have a well-maintained fully fenced dog park that our pups throughly enjoyed. A hearty breakfast was included with new menu items each day. Very convenient to both the historic downtown as well as the beaches. We will be back!

I picked the Southern Oaks Inn on Trip Advisor due to the pricing and convenience to the attractions. Ended up getting a buy 2 get one free night special booking directly through their website. Everything about this place was great! Loved the daily shuttle to the visitors center. Dennis the shuttle driver was awesome. Large very clean king bed room on the quiet side away from the dog friendly rooms. Great hot breakfast daily. Easy check in and out, and the staff text us daily to see of there was anything we needed (more pillows please). Bonus points for the availability of alcoholic beverages in the lobby for purchase. I cannot wait to return here!
