Date of stay: February 2017Trip type: Travelled as a couple
We have stayed at this hotel a number of times and make it a mandatory stop each year on our trip(s) up and down the East Coast. It is a beautiful, historic property with a lot of character and ambience. The staff is friendly and accommodating. They are quick to meet your special requests and are very knowledgeable about the area attractions and dining options. The hotel is very well kept and immaculately clean. Our only caution would be to make sure you don't get the room right next to the fitness center as the guests like to get their workout VERY early in the morning. (This happened to us last year, so we were explicit this time when we made our reservation.) The surrounding area is very quaint and exudes a collegetown atmosphere. There are also many important local landmarks and points of interest to explore. The small and quiet downtown area has a number of interesting shops. We would highly recommend the Southern Inn for dining. An absolutely fabulous restaurant with a limited but well-prepared and delicious group of food offerings. Our only criticism with the hotel was that the breakfast menu that day had no real protein item (bacon, sausage or ham), so unless you were on a vegetarian diet that day, you were limited in your choices. I am sure this was just a fluke and that they have a more varied set of choices on other days. All in all, a very comfortable stay in a clean and friendly hotel... the hallmark of Southern hospitality.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review of our property. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us and that you have selected us time and time again! We are sorry that breakfast was unusual for you that morning of your most recent stay. We always take care to serve at least one hot meat item in addition to hot eggs, and always have chilled hard-boiled eggs as well. We will take extra care to make sure that a meat is always provided. We take great pride in our hotel and are so grateful for your kind review. We hope you visit us again soon! Jessica McCullough Director of Sales
