This hotel is terrible and unreliable. It is not clean. Also, the room was booked for further dates, and the hotel refused to uphold thier end of the bargain and would not rent the room for the dates promised.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2005

I have stayed at this hotel twice this year. The first time I stayed out of choice. The second time because inexpensive rooms in Hattiesburg have become impossible to find and I'd rather pay a few bucks more and stay here than at a budget motel.

The rooms are well laid out, maybe a bit smallish but still OK. My only beef is that both times, in different rooms, the air conditioning would vent straight up the window curtain.

Would I stay here again? Maybe, but I'd shop around for the best price.

This is possibly the worst maintained hotel I have ever stayed at and it's relatively new.
The place is filthy, dusty and in need of maintenance (the ceiling in the bathroom was caving in). Old food was all over the room as I don't believe it had been vacuumed in months.
Housekeeping - you had the track down the woman to get towels (2 pm). I didn't even try to get the bed made
On the positive side, I found the staff polite and and as helpful as they could be.
My recommendation would be to find another place to stay in Hattiesburg.

Spent several days at Hawthorn Suites just off Hwy 49 in Hattiesburg. While this hotel is fairly new, the rooms (we had 2) were dusty & filthy! Old food was on the floor around the beds, etc; the bathtubs were nasty, & both suites looked like they hadn’t been cleaned in a year! The rooms were not laid out as well as other all-suites hotels, & it’s a stretch to call them suites although each had a small refrigerator, small sink, & microwave. The public areas seemed ok. There was an outdoor pool as well as an indoor pool & exercise room. Most of the staff was nice but, on several occasions, one lady was extremely rude & very difficult to deal with. This same employee also had her small children at work with her on several occasions. Many guests were business people, & the children of the employee were loud, noisy, & intruded into the situations where people were attempting to conduct business. Would not stay at HS again! Nearby seafood restaurant is quite good.
