“OK for the price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

Keep in mind you will be in the flight path of the airport and it sounds like they are landing in your room. Staff not very friendly. We only had one towel at check in and when I asked for more, I got the "eye roll." Did finally get the towels.

When you drive into the parking lot of a hotel and both of you say "Ohhh," together, and not in a good way, that's a bad start.
Then you sit there pondering your decision and a plane flies right over your parking lot, you hope the airport isn't 24 hours.
This was by far the worst hotel experience I've ever had after purchasing it from an online site that starts with an "H" and has two syllables and had given it a "3" rating. That's haywire!
The water in the tub was ankle deep after a shower due to a slow drain.
Two of three bulbs in the bathroom vanity were out which evidently upsets ladies when they can't apply their makeup.
On the upside, the bed was comfortable, the staff was friendly and the airport didn't seem to be a 24 hour airport.
I won't say anything about the breakfast because it was free, but after the dust has settled, nothing is ever free.
I find it interesting that the worst online hotel purchase ever for us was followed by the best in Ocala, Florida after being purchased for $20.00 a night less from a competing online site that starts with a "P" and has two syllables and had their hotel rated as 3 stars also.
With all due respect, this hotel needs a serious refurbishing or the online site needs to adjust their star ratings. Or just cut bait with this property. I know we will.

I have stayed at this property several times when traveling for golf in Mississippi. The hotel's location is very convenient to several restaurants, fuel stations and shopping outlets. There is a Hooters restaurant in he parking lot (nearly) of the hotel. A TGI Fridays, Chili's, etc. no further than .5 miles from the hotel.

The hotel does do a nice breakfast as well.

One draw back some may find is there is a night club in the hotel. Though I have never seen or heard in any of my stays any noise or anything else stemming from the night club.

I travel a great deal to this section of Mississippi and this hotel is always at the top of my list to stay at. It is clean, great location and the staff have always been helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: Try not to get a room at the back of the hotel facing away from the property. Those rooms face the s...

Everything was great about the hotel, staff, food, cleanliness.. Will return in future. No bugs of any kind. Beds were comfy. Great location near walmart and food restaurants. Even a mini mall. Clean bathroom. No stains on the bed or pillowcases. And the check in lady was Monica at both check in and out she was very friendly each time even the night time gal.

My girls and I checked into this hotel on the 11th of July and checked out on the 13th. We had no problems. The hotel was great! Room was spacious. Located near many restaurants: Applebees- Chilis- Golden Corral-Shrimp Basket-Longhorn Steakhouse- TGI Fridays and many others. There's a hooters and night club next door. The movie theater Cinemark- Krispy Kreme -Cato- Office Depot- Ross dress for less- TJ Maxx- Old Navy- Outlet Mall- Walmart and others are all down the street. Not far from the Gulf Islands Waterpark. The breakfast was good. The staff was pleasant. I have no complaints and will definitely stay here again. Tykisha W

We stayed here on our way to New Mexico. It was one of the nicest Best Western's we stayed at on our trip. The room was very clean, the bath was nice and the hot breakfast was excellent. The breakfast area was a step up from most as it almost looked like a restaurant.

The only downside was the air conditioner. Like virtually all in-room units, it made more noise than it should have. I don't think anything was wrong with it but it seems that all these hotel air conditioners are overpowered and make too much noise.

The hotel is near a small airport but we only heard one plane so don't be worried about that.

There must be something about Mississippi because of all the Best Western's we stayed out during our trip, the best were in Mississippi.

This place was a saving grace to my family and me! I booked our room for Motel 8 online and upon arrival we were horrified at the filth and conditions of our room. We called Best Western Seaway Inn and booked a room with them! The staff was great! The room was updated, very nice, VERY CLEAN, and the pool was beautiful! The beds were CLEAN, and comfortable, and the floors in our room were clean. The room smelled fresh and inviting and I would recommend this place to anyone going to MS. The breakfast was very nice as well. We will absolutely stay again if we ever return to this area.
