We stayed here one night on our way to New Orleans. It was clean, maybe a little dated, but clean. The bed was comfortable, assorted pillows to choose from. TV worked great, flat screen. Breakfast included, waffles, yogurt, fruit, cereal, biscuits and gravy, scrambled eggs, bagles, sweet rolls, coffee, tea, milk, plenty to suit everyone. Friendly staff, it seemed like... More

Although the lobby was newly renovated, the motel itself (separate buildings) is dank, musty, smelly. Imagine years of untended water ingress. The carpeting was disgusting--multiple red red patches near the walls. Was there a mass murder here? Mould on the carpeting under the AC unit. Mould growing on the upholstered chair cushion. Stains on the bedding. Red stains on the... More

Our room was OK. The air conditioner worked well. The employees were nice. When we asked for extra towels from housekeeping we didn't get them. We used the washer and dryer on site. It worked well. The pool was green and we would not swim in it. I don't know if it needed chlorine or what, but other people swam... More

Room number 1. Tv did not work. They send maintenance. Maintenance man had BO that had to be days old. He could not fix the tv so they moved us to a new room. Room number 2. The ENTIRE ceiling was caving in and flaking. Room number 3. Dead roach. We left. Room number 3. Tv did not work.

I visited the Clarion Inn University in Hattiesburg, MS, twice the past two weeks. Upon my arrival on the first visit I was greeted with a warm smile by solo receptionist Hailey Windham, who had quite a few guests waiting to check in. Windham courteously and professionally assisted me and each guest in line before me. She thoroughly explained everything... More

To Start off we arrived very late after Midnight July 31,2015. We had driven over 8 hours. The reason we picked this place is I have a service animal and this one allowed them. Of Course with a fee. The Lobby was very nice and we were told our room was in another building we didn't think much of it.... More

We decided to stay here because the hotel had free breakfast, wifi and a pool. The price was very reasonable but we quickly learned why. Once we entered the room I noticed there was a balcony, I opened the door so we could check it out, after unsuccessfully closing the door, I called the front desk. The maintenance man shows... More

We were traveling to the beach with our four grandchildren and little furbaby. We decided to stop for the night in Hattiesburg, MS and all pet friendly hotels were booked except this one. My husband booked two rooms here...BIG MISTAKE! We took one step into one room and turned around and took the keys back. The clerk told me we... More

The lobby area is lovely, the rooms are in separate buildings. In Building A I faced the west and the green door was burning hot. Accessibility was tough even though it was designated handicapped because of posts that held up second floor. Once in the room, there was a second door to indoor hallway that led to ice and vending.... More

Good price, good location well located to the collage and effective air conditioning to deal with the Mississippi heat. Very friendly efficient staff. We were walking distance to several nice restaurants. The continental breakfast was fabulous with great selections of most any type of food or drink you could ask for. Nothing negative at all to mention. Do not expect... More
