I have recently found myself in south Jackson quite regularly for work, and this new Holiday Inn Express property has quickly climbed my list for places to stay when in the area. I have visited a number of Holiday Inn Expresses over the past year, and this is my favorite so far due to the modern room decor and layout, breakfast/sitting room with fireplace, and the fact that they are one of just a few nearby hotels (including other Priority Club, Hilton, and Marriott properties) that always seem to have availability at the state government rate ($77 + tax). I am a huge fan of the all-in-one bed headboard and nightstands, a very Ikea-esque design with great utility (translated "easy access to outlets"). The bed covers always feel too light and thin to me but always leave me surprisingly warmer than expected. I will confess that my first stay here gave me an almost immediate negative impression due to the coffee pot in my room never having been cleaned of old tea bags from a previous traveler, but I gave them a second chance and have never regretted it. Due to the hotel's location right on Interstate 20, I would recommend asking for a room on the opposite end of the hotel. The traffic noise can be a bit loud at times if in an interstate-facing room.
