Visited family in Hattiesburg the weekend of Memorial Day and stayed here for two nights.
The location is right off of Hwy 49 and very easy to find. It was also right at the interstate ramp to take you to all the good shopping on Hwy 98.
From the outside, the hotel looked very nice. Lobby was beautiful. Was checked in by Brett, who was super nice. Check-in would have been a breeze except the machine that makes the room keys was broken and up on the fourth floor being fixed. Other desk clerk went up to have the key made. However, maintenance brought the machine back down before she made it up there. Brett apologized and quickly made my key. A little inconvenient but Brett's hospitality made up for it.
Our room was on the top floor which was nice. However, the configuration of the room was odd and made the room feel small. The area where the fridge and microwave was housed was very spacious with a long counter and sink. Bathroom was small but I guess may be considered average for most people. We had an eating table with two chairs that was in a small area of the room. The desk had no chair but that was fine since we had the other two chairs. Carpet appeared clean but their was a ball of hair under the bathroom sink and blonde hair on the bed cover. Sheets were clean though. There was a broken handle on the dresser and one of the curtain swags was hanging down.
I could live with all of this, but I had two major issues. The mattress was way to soft. It was like sleeping on firm jello. Secondly, we did not have blackout curtains. This was a major issue as our room faced the other hotel and interstate. But it was horrible when the sun rose. We didn't get to sleep in during our mini vacation.
Overall, it was an ok stay.
