“Needs updating in more ways than one”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

Stayed here because of its convenient location to an event in Ridgeland. The hotel was once a Jameson Inn. How do I know? When I checked to see why the message light was blinking, the prompt said: Welcome to the Jameson Inn.

Our room was basic but clean, although the linens were somewhat musty. There were no wash cloths, only 2 towels and 2 hand towels.

The door had numerous holes where the screws holding the security device had been popped out.

The front desk person, when we checked in, was cheerful and helpful. The person on duty the next morning had to be reminded that, even at 7 a.m., the breakfast supplies had been depleted. That did not make that person's day. Service was not with a smile. And speaking of the breakfast area: We were there on a Thursday but the newspaper on the shelf was the previous weekend's USATODAY. The current newspaper was available at the front desk.

For those who want more than a make-your-own breakfast, two popular chain restaurants are within walking distance.

On the plus side, there is free wi-fi and our ground floor room was extremely quiet even though we faced the parking lot and a busy street. No one in our group complained of a sleepless night because of noise.

Nothing wrong with this place that a facelift won't help.

I'm so disappointed! I reserved a group of rooms for a service learning group here at the Howard Johnson and it was miserable. The front desk was rude and unwilling to aid in the most basic requests. I had reserved 3 rooms with 2 queens a piece and instead we got 3 rooms with double size beds. Apparently this hotel has no rooms with queen sized beds... and no towels either. We wanted additional towels and they told us to ask another room for their unused towels (no joke). We got yelled at for using the empty conference room. Also there were random creepy guys in the lobby area late at night that were not guest and were doing their laundry at the hotel for some reason.

Our group stayed here last year and the hotel was much nicer. What it lacked in cleanliness/ amenities it made up for in friendly and excellent service. Since switching ownership I guess things have gone down hill. Our group was here to do community service so we weren't expecting the Ritz but I know we could've done better than staying here.

All in all don't stay here there are many other options in the area that are likely cheaper even if they aren't better in quality. Beware!

Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment; we take these very seriously and find them to be helpful. At this time, we are undergoing a transition in our management and front desk team, and the staff is being re-trained so that guest issues and concerns are addressed more promptly. Our number one priority is to ensure the happiness and comfort of our guests, and we hope that you will avail yourself of the changes being made the next time you are in Jackson.
