“A little disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013 via mobile

I have to agree with rtj17 (dated 2/26/2013). I thought the same thing he did....this was a different motel at one time that is now a Hampton Inn. I'm not used to having my room with the door outside and was uncomfortable with that, but it turned out to be OK. I didn't sleep well because the air conditioner (a wall unit by the window) would go on (loudly) and then off. This happened all night. I got up and adjusted the temperature several times, and it still did it.

I was here on business and didn't make the reservation....the company I was working for did. If I return, I'll stay at the Hilton Garden Inn not too far away from the Hampton Inn.

Stopped off for an overnight stay while on a road trip through Mississippi. We were greeted by a very friendly person at the front desk. Everything was clean and appeared to be recently updated. The bed was very comfortable. Nice breakfast provided the next morning to start us on the road.

Wished we'd had a ground floor room as we were traveling with a small pet. Maybe this was because we stayed using Hilton Honors points.

Would probably stay here again.

I left a very negative review last October when I stayed here but would like to update this concerning the hotel and staff. The manager went to great lengths to satisfy us upon learning our displeasure and we greatly appreciate this gesture. While the hotel is old and in need of updating, the manager genuinely cares and I am sure they are working to update the hotel. I would stay here again if needed. I feel as if we might have come on a day of labor shortage which I find quite a bit in Hattiesburg at various establishments.

Thank you for the update. Time is limited these days and you taking the time to update your previous review means a lot to myself and the staff. We are a constant work in progress and we press to stay competitive in the market. We are here to provide the best service that we can to our guests. Ownership is working on the things that are above our heads but together we have a common goal. Thank you again for being the update and we hope to see you again in the Hub City.

This is an older property, might have been another brand in the past. All the usual Hampton amenities were present, but the overall feel is one of a 30 year old hotel that could use some refreshing. If I'm looking to stay at a Hilton HHonors property next time in Hattiesburg, I'll probably choose the Garden Inn nearby.

The hotel is only two stories tall, with one building having all outside doors. This might be an issue for those wanting an inside door not at ground level.

The "business center" is just two computers and a printer near the breakfast area, right next to the entrance to the buffet area. This can be a noisy place at times.

There are several chain restaurants within walking distance.

It was a pleasant stay for me. I loved the very friendly staff. The room was clean. The hotel is conveniently located close to the University of Southern Mississippi. I will stay there again. Elevators to upstairs would be a good addition.

Part of the hotel has interior rooms, and the other part has exterior entrance rooms. The hotel is 2 stories, and the exterior room building doesn't have an elevator. I was put in an exterior entrance room due to traveling with my dog, which was fine, but I ended up on the 2nd floor with tons of luggage to carry up. I travel for weeks at a time for work, and everything was fine for the first week. Until...

I don't know if my stay was bad timing or if this hotel is just normally full of shaddy people. I got woke up at 2am (along with the rest of the hotel guests) on a Sunday morning due to drunk people screaming and fighting outside my room. I called the front desk, and they already had several complaints and police were called. Then, the following Sunday evening, I hear a woman outside my room screaming because she found an older man naked in her 15 year old daughter's room. She was calling 911, and again, the police arrived.

Staff is great. The hotel is nice and $99 per night seemed on point for the quality of the room/hotel, but I have now termed the north 2nd floor balcony Riff Raff Row.

I will likely never stay here again.

Room Tip: No elevator - get a 1st floor room.

Thank you for staying with our family while you were in town. We are sincerely apologetic about the issues that you had to deal with while you were here. The weekend that you were here was a VERY isolated weekend. I wish that we could give you a couple of nights rest back and also press the rewind button and do this over again minus the unruly guest issues. Please give me a call at the hotel.
