I have stayed here twice and both times have been treated so good by the friendly people who work their. The rooms are very nice and clean and have new beds which are so comfortable....fell asleep right away. They are still renovating so it will only get better. The location is nice too. I would recommend you stay here!

This hotel was nice for the price, the only problem was there was No Pool!! The kids were upset...... the pool is being renovated! I would definitely stay again if I went back to Hattiesburg!

Beautiful room,...loved the upgrades. Pool was disgusting and not open. Asked for service but i had to find her and remind her.

Our stay was just okay. The bathroom was less than satisfactory and the water temperature needed adjusting. The morning meal was so, so.

Air conditioner not working well, manager did the best he could. Pool out of order unroll 2018.

This is an older hotel, but very clean and well maintained. The room was clean and comfortable. The mattress was very hard and not to my liking, but my daughter said it was perfect for her. We stayed two nights and would definitely stay here again. Very conveniently located.

I arrived late like 3:00 am, the front desk manager was awesome, my key did not work the first time, however before i could get back to front desk he was almost to my room with a new key. The morning staff was just as friendly and very helpful. The breakfast was alright,

We were passing through Hattiesburg Mississippi and returning home from our family vacation. We stayed over at this hotel and, although the front desk staff person was very nice, the room was not. Our TV had a taped up electrical cord and was non-functioning. The beds were very squeaky due to an unstable headboard. The hair dryer didn't work. The breakfast was completely gone within an hour still to go and no one was restocking, so we went to the local McDonald's. The pool was full of swamp like water as well. Fortunately, we weren't planning on swimming anyway, but that would've been a great disappointment! We won't ever be staying here again., especially given that the rate was around $100 per night. I expected at least basic amenities given that it was just renovated a few months before.

Best place to stay for a low price! Everything remodeled and very clean. Nice breakfast but no meat or eggs. Had bottled water at breakfast. Never seen that before, Nice stay, very happy. Planning a return visit going back the other way. You will like it! Also felt very safe. Thanks, guys! Only problem was door locked that I wanted to go out of in the morning and coffee not refilled before I left. Still very happy!

Although there are modern designs, the old furniture looks out of place. The tv doesn't work properly. Internet is weak. Staff was friendly and helpful.
