Visiting Mobile, AL for the 1st time, in August and need a recommendation for hotel. Safe, clean, free parking and reasonably priced. There is a large group of us traveling and I'm not seeing any helpful reviews, dated in 2009, which make me comfortable suggesting a hotel to my friends.
Which hotels and areas of town should be avoided? Not too close to the airport, as we are traveling 20 miles SE and hate to have to make that trip in the wee hours of the night.
Please help. We are arriving by plane and tain. Unfortunately, Mobile no longer has an Amtrak station, leaving a few of us stranded in Hattiesburg, MS for a short time. At this time, I'm willing to consider a hotel further away, if it's worth it.
While I'm on the subject...anybody able to give me info about Hattiesburg? Safety? Car Rental available? Smoothness of the 2 hour ride we have to take to Mobile? No train tickets purchased yet, so we can alter the mode of transportation to air, and air alone.
