The curb appeal and well-decorated lobby make for a great first impression. I wouldn't say it's downhill from there, but the rooms do show their age. The room was clean, well decorated, but fairly basic. The bathroom is especially small, there is no closet (just a bar to hang garments), and the textured walls can't be made-over with just a coat of paint (though they tried).
The bathroom felt damp and the blackened grout between some of the tiles seemed in need of some scrubbing. Not terrible, but just one of the little things that make it not quite great. Rooms are more "motel-style" in that they open to the outside (no corridor), and being on the parking lot level means you hear a lot of other guests' conversations. Last, the A/C unit (a must in Mississippi) made loud clicks and rattling noises. We always travel with earplugs, but without them it was enough noise to keep you up.
This hotel is redeemed by friendly service, continental breakfast and its unbeatable location. There just isn't anywhere more walkable, central and easy. It would probably be out of my price range if they seriously renovated the rooms, and as they are, it's still a nice place to stay.
*Also, nice bath products, plenty of towels and TV channels
