Paid 194 for the room that you couldn't even fit 2 beds in. I could stretch out my arms and almost touch walls. I mean it's nice looking but so very tiny. We paid 150 for a Memphis hotel and it was huge. I guess it's the location that makes it worth it. Beds are wicked nice though.

The hotel was beautiful and worked with me to have a beautiful wedding for our daughter. The staff is outstanding and very friendly. David and Sukie are top of the line . They did everything to be sure that our stay there and the wedding was perfect. Family all stayed there and had a great time. The beer garden was... More

We had the occasion to visit Mississippi State University in Starkville on October 13, 2014. We chose to stay at the Hotel Chester based on its proximity to the college and we wanted to be able to walk around and get a feel for the city as well. This property was perfect for that - rooms were also very clean... More

Hotel is beautiful, great location and walking distance to other shops/eateries. Super friendly staff. Breakfast was a little unorganized, but good. Beer garden is great place. They need TV's outside for watching sports in the garden.

Booked the Gordon Ramsay Deluxe King room for a planned trip to Starkville after seeing the Hotel Hell episode. Location is convenient to shops and restaurants on Main Street. Check in was quick and easy. Lobby area and hallways are tastefully decorated and spotless. Room has a small wet bar with small fridge/freezer and microwave. Decor is great, much more... More

I normally never write reviews, but felt inclined after our wonderful stay. And by the way the pictures on any of these review sites do not for the most part look like any of the rooms myself or our party stayed in. We had 7 rooms booked (they must have redone the hotel from what I see). We stayed here... More

Great on every front and easily the best in town. Great service and all-round experience. The room had been recently updated and was clean, modern superbly decorated and very comfortable. In an excellent location and I loved the beer garden and the Southern cooking.

My wife found this hotel online and we booked it to try it out. It was a very nice hotel in the perfect location- close to downtown restaurants and bars and walking distance to MSU games. Gordon Ramsey has renovated this hotel as part of the Hotel Hell series and everything is fresh and bright. The rooms and bathrooms are... More

Just to let you know that the hotel has been completely updated by Gordon Ramsay on his television show. The pictures taken do not look like the hotel does now. The outside area is wonderful and the owners are awesome. Go to their website to see the way it looks now. Unfortunately I cant post my pictures because my memory... More
