We stayed at the Southwood Inn after playing a gig in Selmer. The rooms were very clean, comfortable beds, and the welcome pack was very sweet.. As musicians getting up early isn't the norm so we missed breakfast but Lisa, the owner, more than generously offered to make us breakfast before we headed out. It was delicious!! I absolutely suggest...

We found the hotel to be comfortable, and the staff was friendly. Of course, we were there in December, so there weren't too many customers. It was rainy and going to be icing up the next day, so we had to cut our trip short, but we did enjoy the stay, and the breakfast they served was very good.

Pulled in late on the motorcycle. Friendly, Nice, and Clean. Small Frig & microwave in our room. Freshly painted. Grounds are immaculate. Has a great travel center complete with map of area and U.S. Has a laundry and parking for RV's. The price couldn't be better either.

We came from NY state to Tennessee and reserved the room at the Southwood months ahead of time. Choose the motel only on past online reviews. Upon approach we were a little concerned because we saw the sign and the motel is positioned behind a "rustic" gas station. While driving up the driveway, the motel was looking better and better....

Business takes me to Selmer frequently. This time I stayed at the Southwood Inn. This is the old timey one story motel you would see back in the day. It sets back from the road so you do not have any traffice noise. It is one story so you do not have any overhead noise. I truly enjoyed my stay....

I would think twice before going. I wouldn't want anyone to get this on their feet after being in that shower of theirs. Room 138 I believe. Not very good customer service. They weren't really concerned with this issue. But I'm having to deal with my feet blistered and burning. I wonder if the plumber is a friend of the...

I travel around on a regular basis so I am very familiar with hotels and motels in the mid-south. I was told about this motel because of the biscuits and gravy in the morning. The first time I saw the Southwoods inn I though this is a cute place but when I left here I though that was a great...

When I stop here I thought to myself oh lord another hole in the wall but was I soooo wrong. I found this place to be very clean and even more friendly. Over all I will be returning when my travels bring me back here.

We stopped here after a negative experience in Savannah TN. Glad we did - motel was listed in the TN Travel Planner. Quiet, clean and very nice staff. Breakfast was outstanding! Will stay here again when we pass through.

We stayed here due to the reviews and glad we did! It was the perfect place to relax after taking in the civil war history in that area. It was nice to have a ref and microwave to cut down on eating out. I loved the breakfast area and the homemade biscuits and gravy! If we were to ever travel...
