Hattiesburg Hotel for 1 night on way to Florida?

We drive through Hattiesburg on our way to the Perdido Key, FL area. I am interested in a nice but inexpensive hotel to stay in for one night on our way down. We'll be taking Highway 98 to Mobile.

I know there's the loop around Hattiesburg but am not sure which hotels are in that area--we usually just stop to eat a quick lunch and keep going. I'm unfamiliar with the names of the roads around that area so I'd appreciate any hotel suggestions off the loop you can give. Thanks!

The loop is I 59. Get off at Exit 65 which is Highway 98 or Hardy Street. There's a nice Hampton Inn on the right. There's a Fairfield and Courtyard also. There are about 6/7 hotels at the interchange. Go out W past Turtle Creek Mall for great BBQ at Leatha's which is behind a RV sales joint on the south side of # 98.

Courtyard by Marriott @ 119 Grand Drive, Hattiesburg, MS 601 - 268 - 3050.

Purple Parrott Cafe @ 3904 Hardy St., Hattiesburg, MS. 601 - 264 - 0672.

If you don't want BBQ Crescent City and Purple Carrott are great. They are both a short drive from your hotel.

If you stop for lunch in Vicksburg go to Rusty's Riverfront Grill. Enjoy your trip.

Axle, Thank you SO much!! I appreciate the hotel tips and food ideas! The BBQ sounds great--that might have to be our evening meal when we get to town. We usually stop at the Chick-fe-le for lunch to let our son play and then hit the road again. I'm hoping we can change that this year. Thank you again!!

Also a nice Marriott Residence Inn that usually had good rates on the weekend. The last time we were in the area we paid about $100 per night.

Yes Crescent City Grill and Leatha's BBQ are both very good.

Marriott is perfect. Crescent City Grill is just down the street. Be careful. You are near a lot of Mustard Buzzards, AKA University of Southern Mississippi Golden Eagles.
