it was ok

I booked three rooms for my colleagues and myself. The rooms were spacious with a king bed and another sitting area. They all seemed clean enough. Somehow I got the worst room. Mine was really smokey- so much than my clothes smelled like smoke when I returned home. My remote control was also broken (I can't complain about that too much because I didn't alert staff to the issue...but who wants to deal with them when you are already in your pjs). The selection for breakfast and the weak coffee forced me to grab something elsewhere. On a positive note, the pool looked clean and inviting.

That Smell

Nasty smell of musky, rose perfume covering up dirty socks. Unclean, and it just got worse and worse as the hours passed. After investigation, inside the A/C vent were white granules sprinkled in. When the maintenance guy came (and, he was very sweet/helpful), he pulled out the vents and they were completely clogged up. After cleaning them, we got some air flowing in. The sheets were dull/dingy and holey, mattress was springy, very old. Carpet just filthy. Bathroom was clean! They really could do better. I heard a few rude comments made by staff (older man).

NEVER EVER AGIN

We recently spent 2 nights at this hotel and were EXTREMELY disappointed. We booked online and from the pictures and description we were to have a jacuzzi tub and a suite with 1 bedroom and a living room. Upon arrival at the hotel we discovered that their version of a "suite" with a bedroom and living room is simply a regular size hotel room with a 1 foot wide half wall and archway leading to a sitting area. I have stayed in several hotels with suites, and this always means there is a door separating the rooms. Also, I saw on other hotel websites (a Comfort Inn in Moss Point I believe) where this exact same setup was called a "sitting area," not a suite. We had booked this hotel because we have 2 small children and wanted them to sleep in a separate room. We also were supposed to have a crib waiting for us. They did not have any when we arrived. Our room smelled horribly musty and moldy, and the carpet felt damp and sticky. We discovered there was mold all over the bathroom ceiling and so we were moved to another room. At this time we also found out that the hotel only had 1 or 2 Jacuzzi tubs, which are out of order. We had to be moved to a room with 2 doubles instead of a king because we needed the extra bed since there was no crib available for us. This new room smelled so strong like an odor bomb had been set off that we could barely stand the smell. By this time it was around 11pm on Friday night, and we had no other option but to stay. The a/c did not work well, and we were hot most of the night. The tub had hair in it and the toilet was dirty. Also, when you sat on the toilet, the whole thing rocked considerably. The carpet in this room was also damp and sticky feeling. The bottom sheet on the beds was a flat sheet that did not fit the bed, and was not able to be tucked in, so every time we rolled over, the sheet came off the bed. When we went to the front desk to tell them about the mold, the clerk was kicked back with feet on the desk talking on his cell phone. We leaned on the desk to get his attention and he looked up and said, "What's up?" while still on the phone. The next morning we looked for another hotel but since it was Labor Day weekend, there was nothing available. We also found out the next day that they simply painted over the mold in the bathroom and put another guest in it that night. (The clerk told us this.) Not only does this not get rid of the mold and mold problem, it leaves toxic paint fumes that are not cleared out in a few hours time. We stayed another disappointing night in this hotel, but canceled our third night and headed on down the road to find another hotel. I am just amazed that the EconoLodge can even still call themselves a Choice Hotel. I feel like we threw our money down the toilet.

There is an amazing restaurant about 25 miles away in D'Iberville called Sicily's. It is an awesome italian buffet with lots of different kinds of pizza, pasta, soup, chicken, salad, bread sticks, soda, icees, ice cream, about 6 flavors of coffee, deserts, etc... Great atmosphere, clean, great price ($7.99 until 5, $8.99 after 5), great selection. Kids 3 and under are free, and after that just 99 cents per year.

It was all that was available....

Stayed at this hotel because the conference I was attending was at the not too far away Hollywood hotel/casino, but it was booked. The place was clean, but the remote for the TV, and some of the controls on the TV did not work. The toilet constantly ran water, and the fitted sheets were too big for the bed. Woke up in the morning half on uncovered matress. I stayed two nights. In the morning I told the desk person about the problems listed above. When I got back that evening, nothing was fixed and nothing was. I was ignored. We were in a non-smoking room, but the rooms across the hall were smoking so the whole floor reeked of smoking. There is only stairs to the 2nd floor, no elevator. The breakfast offered in the morning is just half cut honey buns, cerial, and a waffle machine. The wi-fi was free, but fairly slow.

Except for Dairy Queen and Waffle house, you need to go to Gulf Port, 15 minutes away to get to anything worth while.

Accessibility Limited

We had specified a wheelchair accessible room, and while the room was on the ground floor and the bathroom was accessible, the room itself was very small and crowded with only the necessary furniture. It was very difficult to navigate the room in a motorized wheelchair. For the size of the room I thought the price was too high. The breakfast was adequate and convenient with juices, coffee, tea, cold and hot foods.

A Decent Stay

We stayed at this hotel while visiting the beaches of the Gulfport area. Our experience was decent but not wonderful. We stayed in a room with a king-sized bed, and we had enough room to set up the baby's playpen. Everything looked clean enough, but we had some minor problems. For example, the refrigerator made so much noise that I had to unplug it, and the drain stopper in the sink was broken so that I could not soak the baby's sippy cups. We did find the staff to be friendly. Breakfast was modest to say the least: a few pastries, a waffle maker, and some cereal were all that we could find. This is a good enough place to spend the night, especially since there are few hotels in the area, but don't expect a luxurious stay.
