“Acceptable if price is driving your decision”
Reviewed 31 January 2012

The main reason for staying here is the price. All other hotels in town charge handsomely considering the size of the town.

The hotel itself is acceptable, if in need of a bit of investment. But if all you want is a clean bed, a clean bathroom and working Airco, then you'll be fine here.

It is within walking distance of the main street in downtown Florence, although you won't find a huge amount by way of dining or drinking options there.

...which I appreciated very much when I left some property at the hotel. The manager was great in telling me what I needed to do to get it sent back to me and I appreciated that very much. Keep in mind the price of this hotel; your expectations should be set appropriately. Other helpful hints: take a shower the night before in case there are a lot of guests staying and showering in the morning - you won't have any hot water. Also don't take a room close to the elevator - it clanks and bangs pretty much all night. Lastly - wear earplugs if traffic noise/sirens tend to wake you up. This hotel was conveniently located and priced and perfect when you're passing through.

Room Tip: Stay away from the elevator!

For the trail of tears, I stayed here. The rate at the city lodge was cheaper than the other hotels on the internet. I didn't want to reserve a room at the city lodge at first cause I didn't think I would have as good a room or stay since the rate was lower than other hotels in town. But their rooms were actually very nice and got real value for my money. I would definitely stay again for the next trail of tears if their rate is the same.

Stayed at the City Lodge in June 2011. Had a nice, comfortable stay and liked that it was close to the hospital where my mom was admitted. This place is very affordable - other hotels were asking for $80-100 per night. I would definitely stay again.

I hate to write a bad review on any place. Here are the cons: dirty. Run down. Dark lighting. Old elevator and filthy. Scary lobby with glass window checkin at all times of day. Indian owned and run. Shaddy and scary guests and residents! Saw drug runs in parking lot.
Walked into room and walked out. Gross and neighbors scary.

400South, General Manager at Days Inn Florence Downtown, responded to this review, 17 June 2011
Clearly this is a review by someone who is prejudiced and this is a false description of the motel. We invite you to come and check it out or look on our website for property information and photos.
We have about 80% of our guests return year after year. We cater for the mid-range market and attract guests that are looking for the best value for their dollar. I feel that if this guest had actually stayed with us, he/she would have had a different view of this motel.
