“Probably the best hotel in Hattiesburg”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

We stayed at this hotel for USM graduation in a two bedroom suite. The room was perfect with very comfortable beds and nice clean bathrooms and living area. It was a better rate than each family buying their own room and gave us a nice gathering space for post graduation celebrating. The pool is nice although a little too chilly to enjoy on this trip. It is walking distance to mugshots and la fiesta brava which are both delicious options for a bite to eat. The breakfast in the lobby was very tasty and they even have a little outdoor patio with grill although we didn't use it. Only way the outdoor amenities could've been improved is if they didn't allow smoking - we have a new baby and didn't want her exposed to second hand smoke. Overall it's a very nice hotel for the rate and of all the hotels we've stayed in over the last four years it was by far the nicest!

I am staying there right now for my last day of 2 unfortunate weeks. I had to fight to get this hotel. The rate was fantastic 78.84/night. I guess that makes up for a lot, the room only had 2 burners who did not get hot enough to cook on. So I used the outside grill which worked well enough and was actually good. I wanted to cook my own food to save money and because the food served at the hotel is bad! Breakfast is little more than continental plus eggs, sausage and fix your own hot waffle. Dinner is 1 thing. Last night it was grilled chicken breasts with salsa and melted cheese sauce. There was free beer though! So all in all the food is very bad. Service was unknowledgeable, but pretty friendly. The internet had lag spikes which caused problems gaming online, that is to be expected in any hotel though. At least I was able to for the most part, it is sufficient for normal browsing. The housekeeping staff is FANTASTIC. They kept the room clean and stocked and gave personal touches like even washing dirty dishes from I had left in sink or dishwasher. If I have to I will stay there again, but I am gonna push for the Hampton next time.

Room Tip: Avoid room 327

We stay in a lot of Residence Inns, and this was very nice. Most important to me, the bed was comfortable and the room was clean and spacious. One of my pet peeves is hotels that ask you to reuse towels, then provide one small towel rack. This hotel had two. I agree the pet fee is far too high for an overnight stay at all Residence Inns, but I am aware of it and plan accordingly. (Note to Marriott: a $25-50 fee plus $100 refundable damage deposit would be more reasonable.) If I were looking for a complaint about this particular Residence Inn, I guess it would have to be the lack of an ice machine. But it's likely the desk could provide small amounts of "emergency" ice from the hotel kitchen.

After 10 hours on the road, this was a quiet, clean, comfortable place to stay. Only stayed one night, but could stay for several if I was planning on being in the Hattiesburg area.
The suite was so much nicer than a regular room someplace else. The bed was super comfortable and living area was roomy with comfortable seating and a large flat screen T.V.
Though we didn't cook in the suite, it had everything one would need to prepare a full meal and all the dishes, and such looked like they were brand new. The kitchenette came with a full size refrigerator, dishwasher, stove top and microwave. We just made coffee the next morning, but we did enjoy the dining table for carry-out from the Mexican rest. within walking distance.
We didn't get a chance to use the pool or hot tub, but did walk down to look at them and everything was very nice and clean. The hotel is smoke free hotel, but they do have some ciggy containers down by the pool if you care to smoke.
The breakfast was probably the best set-up I've seen in any of our travels. The offerings were extensive, both hot and cold items. The area was very clean and was constantly being taken care of by their very sweet staff. You could use glass plates and glasses for eating in or you could get your breakfast on paper if you were getting it to go.
All around a wonderful hotel....you just can't go wrong with this choice. The staff were professional and very nice personally.

I stayed here for one night on business recently and had a great experience. The front desk staff couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. The room was very clean and I appreciated the free wi-fi. Great short stay.

Stayed two nights using points while in town for a family event. Thought I had selected a room with two double beds because my son was going to share the room one night, but discovered on check in that they don't have rooms with 2 double beds, but they immediately upgraded me for no extra points to a two room suite! (I did hear later from someone in another hotel that there was supposed to have been a big soccer tournament the same weekend that got cancelled, so lots of rooms in the area became available. Nevertheless, the two desk clerks did upgrade my room quickly and without question).

The room(s) were clean, quiet and comfortable, and as described by others. Whole place was updated, mattresses comfortable. the kitchenette was very nice, although we didn't use it. Breakfast was included and they offered cereals, breads and even eggs etc. Coffee was decent. All of the staff were very friendly and professional.

The only weird things I noticed were that the sink counters were high and the bowls were set back about 8 inches, so for a vertically challenged person (short) it meant standing on my toes and leaning over the counter. Also the lavatory light switches were not close to the door, but set further along the walls. Minor problems, overall, really.

Room Tip: No matter what hotel I always request a room on an upper floor and far away from the elevator.

Our room was like a studio with a mini kitchen, living room, and king-sized bed (open-living areas). This hotel would be great if you were in Hattiesburg for an extended time. The eat-in kitchen was stocked with pots, pans, dishes, etc. It even had a stove-top for cooking, a nice-sized fridge, and a small table to eat at. The room was very clean. The complimentary breakfast was fully stocked with many options...grits, muffins, fruit, oatmeal, waffles, sausage, breakfast potatoes, juice, coffee, milk, and much much more. I would defiantly stay at this hotel again.
