My family was traveling thru MS this month on our way home from FL. My husband saw the hotel on a search for hitels and it looked acceptable for our needs. At checkin there is a sign that says NO REFUNDS for any reason. Let that be the red flag that sends you to another hotel! As we were still... More

The highlight of my short stay at this hotel was the moment when, after a long day of traveling, I put my key card into the slot, that little green light came on, I opened the door and was greeted by someone else's little black and white dog trotting across the floor to greet me. That's right, someone else was... More

One word: Ghetto. Hallways smelled like smoke (cigarettes and marijuana). Room was OK, but run down. Indoor pool is a joke. Ceiling caved in, letting the outside atmosphere into the room eliminating the usefullness of a heated pool. Jacuzzi was empty/inoperable. Free breakfast was also a joke. Constantly running out of food. Staff was in no hurry to replenish. Food... More

Very modern and clean work a nice pool and hot tub. I'd suggest this place if you don't mind staying a little far from the beach at a good price. There's also a Wendy's within walking distance. And the breakfast is pretty good.

We had planned a training session at the hotel and had a block of rooms set aside for people coming and then started to get worried about some of the previous reviews. As the day approached we started to have second thoughts but were arriving in advance so were willing to see what turned up. Well, all I can say... More

I wanted a hotel that offered an indoor pool. This one did, the pictures of pool looked nice. Also as a plus the rooms looked well maintained and up to date. As soon as we got to the room the kids changed into their swimsuits while I checked everything out, first thing I noticed was the dust that was everywhere,... More

I have used this hotel for 7 years. Last summer (2014) it changed management. I visited this hotel in the summer and fall of 2014. My room was fine but I was embarrassed for my co-worker. Everything that could go wrong did. The breakfast was skimpy the first day and recycled the next. The standard of cleanliness had dropped dramatically.... More
