Scottish Inn Jackson
Ranked #31 of 39 Hotels in Jackson
Reviewed November 12, 2013

It was a tale of two rooms, my mothers was OK, even though it stunk of smoke and was a no smoking room.
My room had a broken bathroom door, a missing smoke alarm (also stunk of smoke in a no smoking room), an A/C that sounded like an idling tank and an infestation of cockroaches on the night stand!
The rooms were small but well presented.

Room Tip: Just don't!

Worst motel experience ever! First of all, the man at the desk was trying to charge me every price but what was listed on the big sign out front. It says $38.99 weekly rate. Since this was a Tuesday night, that should apply. He said it didnt, but finally agreed on that price. I should have left then but was very tired from traveling. Room was very hot and stunk. No handle on shower door, towel rack had come out of the wall and was re-screwed into wall - at an angle - below the holes in the wall where previous screws had been, ironing board with no iron, and hair dryer did not work. Most importantly, the door did not lock properly. Checked in around midnight and finally left about 4:30 a.m. Could not sleep due to how hot the room was. Air conditioner was not cooling the room off despite setting it on 60 degrees. When I checked out, I asked for a refund and the man at the desk, who is the one who had checked me in, said I would have to talk to a manager. Horrible place!

This was a clean, quiet motel only a few minutes by car to Jackson Airport. Rooms were clean and the staff friendly and efficient. No frills but a good bargain for convenience to the airport. A large shopping mall with restaurants is only a few minutes away. Computer with Internet access is available. Even has a bird cage with several birds in the lobby to add color. About an hour to Vicksburg and two hours to Natchez, two good tourist sites. Recommended for budget travelers needing to be near the Jackson Airport.

Passing through for the night. Rates were decent, used a coupon to stay here. Lady at the desk that checked me in was very polite and courteous. Rooms were very small and needed updating. TV did not work through out the night and there was no light bulb in one of the fixtures. Breakfast was ok, pretty much average. Parking lot not very bright and the employee in the morning checking me out was in a rush for some reason. Overall, its good for a one-nighter.

The reviews for this hotel made it sound like it would be clean, not sure what standards they have for clean but everything was icky and grimey. Hotel walls are very thin, we found that out the hard way. People next door played music and partied half the night. Called to let the front desk know around midnight but nothing was done. I thought hotels were to sleep but I guess if you're a frat guy they're to party all night. There was a security person in the parking lot who did nothing but talk on his cell phone. My son asked the front desk if the neighborhood was safe and they said it was, there had just been some cars broken into. Okay, if your property is at risk, then it is NOT safe. Have stayed at several Sleep Inns, they're usual clean and reasonable, but would never stay at this one again.

For a "Cheap Sleep", try out Sleep Inns. This was our second stay at a Sleep Inn this year. We were only staying for about 8 hours due to a grueling driving schedule so we didn't want to spend much. Not what you would expect for a 1.5-2 star room. The bed was elevated, the room was rather cute, the shower was huge. Sleep Inns all boast of new bedding and many pillows but I wondered if it was true for all hotels. It was so for this one. The bedspread was so-so quality but the sheets and pillows were nice and I slept soundly which is a bit unusual. If you find yourself forced spend the night in Jackson, MS, try out the Sleep Inn if on a budget. We have a Choice Privileges number so the price is about 15% cheaper than reg. internet rates. Also, the breakfast is strictly carbohydrates. Bagels, buns, and cereals. But don't fret, a McDonald's is across the street. You cannot spot this hotel from the interstate (I-20) so you will have to call or do some research online to find it. It is not far off the interstate at all though. At least that keeps the noise level down.
