We stayed in the motel for 2 nights we got room 2. The restaurant OLIVERS is right next door. Since it was March it was quiet but I think room 1 and 2 might be noisy in the summer but we loved it the view was great and the location was very good. We opted to stay at the motel...

This is a great place for a getaway! Our first time staying at a B&B, and it was wonderful. My compliments to the chef. The food was excellent. The accommodations were roomy and comfortable. Great views of the waterfront. We could sit on our balcony and watch the boats go by. We could walk to shopping/dinning and didn't have to...

In addition to the charming location and beautiful rooms, the owner is lovely. A warm and relaxing atmosphere where unwinding was easy. Breakfast was amazing and absolutely chef quality. Wish I could have stayed longer in such a beautiful spot. We will be back!

We stayed in the Skip's Upper Suite, which has a living room and kitchen in addition to the bedroom and bathroom, and a lot of privacy! We have stayed here before and it's wonderful every time. The innkeepers are warm and welcoming, and they went out of their way to make gluten-free breakfast options for my husband. Breakfast included more...

Lois Jane's Riverview Motel is a quaint, old school motel right on the mouth of the cape fear river. The rooms have a back porch complete with a wooden swing and an unbelievable view. The motel is within walking distance of all Southport NC has to offer but I could have spent all of my time on that swing watching...

The Lois Jane Bed & Breakfast is a relaxing get away. A home away from home. The friendly staff made our stay enjoyable. They served a hot breakfast each morning, that was very delicious. The views of the water from either the front porch or the variety of swings on the property were wonderful. It was really nice to meet...

Lois Jane's never disappoints us. We love it there. The Innkeeper, Carolyn, is the best, taking care of all your needs plus makes the best breakfast in town! We love the Miss Mary's room, enjoining the views from the balcony off the room. Coffee is available each morning to enjoy on the balcony while you watch the sun come up...

The best feature of the Riverview Inn was the location. What views! Sitting on the back porch swinging or walking along the waterfront was fantastic. It was our first visit and the room was very clean and the staff was very friendly. My rating is a "3" as the place definitely needs some updating. The water pressure wasn't great at...
