My wife, daughter and I spent three nights here over the Christmas week. The house was decorated for the holidays, furnished with antiques and accessories and was very nice for photos. Our room, the Old Savannah, was well appointed and beautifully furnished. The dining and common areas are very nicely set up. The staff was very nice and worked to make the stay as pleasant as possible. This is, in my opinion, the nicest property to stay in if you are visiting Pascagoula, hands down. If I have any criticisms, they are minimal, but here they are: 1) the extremely comfortable king size bed was very tall and a bed step on the side would be helpful for those of us who are under 6' tall, 2) the morning coffee was adequate, but there are perhaps better options available (this is probably just nit-picky) and 3) a corkscrew/bottle opener for the rooms, or common area would be a nice addition. None of these criticisms would cause me to lower my rating and I would highly recommend Grand Magnolia as "THE" place to stay to any of my friends and family who are travelling to Pascagoula.
