My two toddlers and I arrived at 2 AM, but didn't get into a room until 2:45 AM. room 1 was under remodel/construction-- not going to work. Rooms 2, 3, & 4, the keys don't work at all-- nothing happening. In the 45 minutes it took to get into a room, my kids slept on the lobby couch while the... More

The place was seriously outdated. The room had musty smell and sheets had many stains. Bed is saggy and uncomfortable. The place is really run down even the ceiling was dirty. I would stay away from this hotel.

On June 28, 2015 we found this Hotel (by view from Highway) around midnight. Was very tired and had been driving for over 12 hours. This hotel did NOT recognize military discount, and as soon as you walked into hotel the ODOR (of mildew) was STRONG. It's old and run down and the room (over charged) did NOT have the... More

The low price on this hotel should have been a red flag. It was under some renovations so I hope for some improvements in the near future. I just needed a place to sleep as I would only be there for about 10 hours. Although the grounds were well kept considering the construction, the room had a terrible musty smell... More

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.
