Then this is a good place to cool your heels. Friendly staff, clean quarters, and easy to get to from the highway. One thing that I never really considered is noise. On the return trip back through Meridian we decided to try another major chain of hotels near the Drury. It was facing the entrance ramp to I-59 and absorbed all the sounds coming off the highway as well as the ramp. Not so for the Drury, it was very quite without all the highway noise.
