I was really surprised when we arrived at the number 1 rated hotel in Jackson and it was located right across from the fairgrounds, in not a great part of town, behind a Wendy's and construction going on.
Why is it rated number 1? I HOPE that there are better hotels in Jackson! If not, Jackson is doomed!
We didn't have a bad stay, but the hotel is not number 1. It is an old-old property that was redone. You can tell this by where the building is located and by the pool. The pool is old, outside, and only three of 15 lights work. It is not clean (hair/debris in the pool) and not safe. I didn't want to leave my kids (10 and 14) for a minute... there were construction workers using the pool and it just didn't "feel" safe.
Was the hotel clean? Yes. The breakfast was good. The room was a Comfort Inn room.
Would I stay here again? Probably not. I would HAVE to think that there are better hotels located in a better part of town.
If you are interested in fishing, go to Betsy's Bait. They will direct you to Crystal Lake. It is a nice place and the kids enjoyed fishing.
Please note... ALL the restaurants around that part of town are CLOSED or do not serve supper on a Monday evening. We drove all over town and ended up eating at the Wendy's right behind the hotel for supper. Not sure why this is (even the grocery stores were closed).
