I've driven past here at least a hundred times. It's the half way point between home in Florida and family in N.J. The signs on I-95 are entertaining and last for like 150 miles. I finally couldn't take it anymore and had to stop for the night. It was everything I thought it would be.. Magical! A great adventure. Made...

We stayed at this campground next to the South of the Border roadside attraction January of this year on our way north from Florida. We stayed again in August of this year returning from vacation in Florida with our RV. The staff are very pleasant, we had a wonderful campsite. They are in the process of upgrading the facility. The...

Our family took a trip to Key West Florida. This is a modestly priced place., The location of the model is at the right point to stop for the night - restaurant within walking distance - would stay there again.

I've never had a back to the future experience before but this might have been my 1st one. On a long and tiring trip up the east coast we stopped at SOB to spend the night, I felt like I was back in the 70's again with the medium brown paneling everywhere and the fake brick chair rail behind the...

This place is a sham. Their brochure advertises luxurious rooms and they are in reality outdated and smelly 60's themed rooms with no air conditioning. The staff put us in "the last available" room with no ac and when we complained were told that's all they had and would not issue a refund. Im six months pregnant and slept in...

Stayed one night the room had a dead cockroach on the bathroom floor. Restaurant was bad. But we did stay the night. The real problem was that the hotel charged my credit card four times for the room. It took from May to July to clear up this matter. I called the hotel but they never responded to my call....

It was a sudden plan to stay in SC for the night as we travelled a lot during the day. We hopped on to the South of the Border motor inn and luckily we got a room :) The price was decent and the room too.

Our room was large, well equipped, and, spotless. Furniture is a little dated but very serviceable. Flat screen HD TV, refrigerator, and, a giant bathroom. Nope, its not the Ritz, but well worth spending the night. Our PET FRIENDLY room was under $50 and was facing one of the two pools. The entire property was worth exploring. We've been driving...

I loved this place. It may not be brand new, but it was very clean and well kept. Every room had it's own carport and the prices were awesome. The staff was friendly they let us check in over 2 hours early. They had two pools one inside one out. My kids loved the outdoor pool it started at 1...

Worn out and run down hotel, Never mind the crawlies in the room. No bedding on the dirty sofa bed. Hot tub wasn't cleaned in years. I like the Free WI FI, then the fine print, only in office and pool areas depending on your equipment. However front desk was friendly. I can stay at the Hampton, 4 stars, 20...
