We stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn in Starkville over Super Bulldog Weekend at Mississippi State for my son who was doing a campus visit there. We booked late so we were going to have to stay in West Point but by some luck, a room opened up here, and were happy it was this hotel being HHonors Gold VIPs. We stayed in a Junior Suite on the 5th floor for about $200 a night. We felt this rate was reasonable being a special event weekend, but any other time, I wouldn't pay more than $130ish. The room was very large, with a separate sitting room with a dividing wall separating it from the bedroom. The bedroom had 1 King Bed, and was one of the new Evolution Sleep System beds whose comfort levels are controlled by the guest. Our bathroom, however, was kind of small and I did notice a few left over hairs from the previous guest, but that was the only issue with that. The breakfast was very nice, with the servers bringing you the food from the buffet and the chefs did a good job cooking the cooked-to-order options, like Omelets, Eggs, Waffles, Pancakes, and much more. We didn't eat at the restaurant for lunch or dinner so we cannot comment on this. The pool and fitness center looked decent, however we didn't take advantage of them so we can't comment further.
The hotels location is good for MS State, but not in the center of Starkville like the Hampton Inn, but the town is pretty small so that was not a big issue. The hotel is on Highway 12, about 1/4-1/2 mile to Highway 82 and about 2-3 minutes from campus. The parking on property is plentiful and lighted.
My son is probably going to choose Mississippi State, so I will be staying many more times.
The Junior Suites provide great space.

Thank you for your recent stay at the Hilton Garden Inn of Starkville. Congratulations on your son attending Mississippi State. A very good choice. I was so glad to see that your stay went well for the most part. I apologize about the hair and have talked with my Executive housekeeper about the issue. Know that we work hard to avoid that type of incident and I will stress to my housekeeping staff agian the importance of double checking all linens. Your comments help to make us the best that we can be. we look forward to seeing you on future trips to Starkville. Have a great week and Go Dawgs
