First off we stayed at this Comfort Suites on July 4th and 5th. I booked the room 2 weeks in advance. Hotel was well kept and customer service at the desk was very nice. Need more than 1 elevator is the only problem I found at this hotel other than the gravy (read on for more info).
Room was big with a couch area and bed was soft but not to soft you sunk into it, it was perfect for me. Bathroom had a tub shower combo, water pressure in shower was powerful and hot water was HOT. Plenty of towels and wash cloths for the 2 days we were there. There is no view from this hotel so drapes stayed shut. AC was great and kept room ice cold at all times. Had a microwave and a tall mini fridge with ice box on top. 32" Flat screen TV with digital channels not old analog cable channels, like some other hotels. Had HBO of course with all the normal ESPN, TNT, TBS, Cartoon Net. etc. Wi-Fi is free and strong. 18 megs download and 8 megs upload, pretty darn fast for free internet, they give you a WiFi password when you check in. Room was clean and smelled clean, this is a non-smoking hotel.
They have a outdoor pool, which we didn't use but other people did. Pool looked clean. They do have a workout room with many machines and weights near the pool exit/entrance area.
Breakfast was OK at best, free with stay. Belgian Waffles you make yourself were great, they had regular batter and strawberry batter. Biscuits and Gray were terrible. The sausage gravy, I don't know what they did, but it was terrible. I'm from the South so I kinda know what gray is supposed to taste like, and this ain't it. One morning they had link sausage and next day patty sausage, both were OK. They had cereal and muffins and bagels, standard breakfast that looked ok. They were nice each day and offered us a tray so we could take it back to room instead of staying in eating area.
It's sets right off the interstate and is 6 minutes from Biloxi Coast and 4 minutes away Ocean Springs on the Bay of Biloxi. It is close to everything you want and easy to get to. Even on a busy holiday weekend like the 4th it was a breeze getting to and from this location from anywhere.
***Tip*** - If your wanting to stay near Gulf of Mexico around July 4th, book real early. One day after I booked there were no rooms at any hotel within 45 minutes of the coast, from Florida to New Orleans, nothing!
All in all, it was just what I expected from a Comfort Suites.
