Food was good and again, the staff was excellent. The room was very clean, again, a little dated, but housekeeping did a great job in cleaning our room while we...

We usually stay at standard chain hotels but saw Southern Oaks in passing and are glad we did. The Inn was clean and homey and parking had easy access to the rooms. The staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very nice too.
