“quiet nights rest at a great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

Stayed for a week at under $480 - what a value! Some of the Biloxi hotels charge that much for a Friday and Saturday night stay alone.
This is a 'guy' review but I loved the place. It is in a quiet residential area and only a very short distance to the beach and mall. Had plenty of space and a quiet nights sleep which are my priorities. Mike (the proprietor) was a wealth of knowledge about places to eat and visit and very happy to share and make my stay enjoyable. I shipped my bicycle out early and he was happy to store it for me and also kept it after I left until FedEx could come and pick it up.

Definitely not upscale lodging though so if that is important to you then go elsewhere. The 10 units are all in a one story rectangular building with the middle space allocated for washer/dryer, extra towels and bedding, etc. The building is cement block construction, the carpets are well worn, the TV's are old style (not flat screen), dishes are mismatched, etc.

However the high-speed internet worked awesome (can watch steamed Netflix movies without buffering). Had a full size refridgerator, microwave and mini-dishwasher. I was in unit 5 which I think is the one Mike did a video of on YOUTUBE with the Parrots on the wall (search for Balmoral Inn on YOUTUBE and check it out).

Would DEFINITELY reccomend if you are looking for a quiet nights sleep, plenty of space, kitchenette, high speed internet, within a short walk of the beach at a great price.

Also has the typical outdoor pool for lounging but not big enough for lap swimmng.I did swim in the gulf but that was a little weird since the water is coffee colored and very shallow (below my knees) until you get quite a ways out. I did find a local health club (EFitness) about 12 minutes away that was awesome and got my lap swims in. EFitness has both an indoor and outdoor 25 yard pools, steam room, sauna, hottub, tons of exercise equipment. I bought a weekly membership for $25. Mike says there are also comunnity centers and the Biloxi Natitorium that have swimming options for just a couple of bucks a day [I always like to get my exercise in when travelling because the all-you can eat buffets at the casinos can really pack in the calories].
Speaking of casinos - if you are looking for blackjack on the cheap would recommend Boomtown. I was always able to get in on their $3 limit blackjack table (they also had some others with higher minimums) and could lose a few hands without burning thru my budget. Did I say this was a 'guy' review?

We booked the Balmoral Inn for 3 nights over the Mardi Gras holiday on our first trip to Biloxi because we make a point of staying in historic properties and because we were looking to save a few dollars by eating a few meals in. We were given room 5, the one with the parrot murals, which I found wonderfully kitschy. The good -- it is walking distance to the beach and to the local mall (if you're so inclined). The two-room apartments are large for the price, and fully furnished. It was great to come back after a day out and sink down into a comfortable couch to relax. It also meant that one of us could stay up later or get up earlier and read or watch t.v. without disturbing the other. The bathroom retains its original flooring and tiled walls, which we love. The king size bed was very comfortable and we slept very well. The closet area in the bedroom is the largest I've ever encountered. The kitchenette includes a large pantry and the cutest little countertop disherwasher I've ever seen. The coffee maker worked and the coffee provided was good. The bad -- the carpets desperately need to be changed. Plan to wear shoes or slippers. The pillows also need to be replaced. If you're staying long-term, bring your own. Same with the towels. Some of new, thick, and soft, but most are old, thin, and scratchy. I should have known not to trust a man when he says that the kitchen is "fully stocked." Stove and refrigerator in working order -- yes. Plates, cups, glasses, bowls, flatware -- yes. Decent knives -- no. Cooking utensils -- no. Pots and saucepans -- yes. Baking sheet or baking pan -- no. No towels, dishcloths, or sponges. No paper towels or napkins. Detergent packs for the dishwasher -- yes. No dishwashing liquid for the pans that won't fit in the dishwasher. No salt or pepper. I've learned, though, and so I brought my own pack of "necessities," which includes salt, pepper, a sharp knife, a roll of paper towels and a roll of foil.

Clean, comfortable, suites sport "Retro" furnishings. The atmosphere is casual,friendly andrelaxing due to host Mike who makes guests and their pets feel welcome. We enjoyed our stay as did our poodle.

Room Tip: End suites are convenient when taking pets outsidesince there is an area to relieve themselves.

When I decided to take a vacation, I wanted to take my adopted shelter puppy with me. I looked for pet friendly places and found Balmoral Inn on the internet. What a find! Clean, huge apartment type suite with kitchen, full living room, computer desk equipped with WiFi and separate bedroom. Great clean pool and lots of grounds with a park across the street for Chocko, my pup. Although Tropical Storm Lee was the main event at the time, we still had a great time. Ms. Debbie, co-host with Mike, was so kind as to write up "a canine vacation plan" with a list of places to go with my best friend. I have already told all my friends.

Room Tip: Very quiet rooms. Kitchens are equipped with everything you need and a dishwasher!

This was our first time at the Balmoral. We were very pleased. Very quite.Very good price. Mike is a very nice and helpful person. If you are looking for glitz and glamour, this is not it, but if you want a quite, good price, plenty of room,and no crowd this is the place.

Great unique gem on the coast... Like a time capsule from the 50's. Very clean and spacious rooms. Although decorated with older furniture , each had hand painted adornments on some of the walls, which added to the 50's "kitchy" ambiance.
I absolutely loved our hosts! Been there several times, and was always pleased.
It is very affordable, and has all the items you needed, including those in the kitchen, so you could sleep in and cook up a little breakfast or prepare a late night snack.
