The staff is very helpful. The guest rooms are spacious, and very clean. The best part of the staying here is the free drinks in the evening, a great way to relax and chat with others. The location is very close to downtown, but still manages to be accessible.

I think the rate ($99+) being charged for these rooms is ridiculous for what you get. The rooms do not come with a microwave or fridge. The bathrooms are so small, one person has problems maneuvering in them. There was also visible bathtub/shower mold in my room. I will never stay here again. I checked out after one night and found a better room at a much better rate.

We stayed at the Cabot Lodge because my mom had an appointment at the Medical Center. (Just around the corner)
Our stay was great.
The lobby looked like a lodge when you went in. It was big, inviting and comfortable. The popcorn was popping and it smelled wonderful!
The guy that checked us in was very friendly. He told us about a really neat place to eat.
Our room was very nice and clean, as was the rest of the hotel. The bed was comfortable. The view was really pretty.
Breakfast was really good, bacon, grits, eggs etc. Again, everything was very neat and clean.
The pool was huge, like hotel swimming pools used to be.
We'll stay there again!

This is a grand, old hotel with modern upgrades - flat screen TVs, refrigerator and microwave in the executive rooms. The hotel lobby is magnificent, reminescent of great lodges in our national parks. The staff was polite and helpful. The hotel was full with Hurricane Gustav evacuees - lots of families with children, but it was incredibly quiet and peaceful.

The hotel's web site makes you think that it has been renovated but it most certainly has not. All they did was install flat screen tvs in the rooms. They are cheap flat screen tvs but they are flat screens, nontheless. Otherwise, I would be surprised if the owner had spent any money on that hotel in 15 years. The entire building feels and smells musty. The bed linens actually felt wet to me. The a/c units stopped removing moisture from the air years ago. I wouldn't be surprised if they traced an outbreak of Legionnaires' disease to this hotel.

The desk staff is totally uninterested in what they are doing. The room was not cheap, either. Unless you need to stay there because of the college or the hospital, then stay somewhere else. It's a creepy hotel and it needs lots of work.

I had business at Millsaps and no car while in Jackson, so I decided to stay at this because of the locations. It is convenient to Millsaps, but that's about it. The room was okay, but the bath was shabby. The staff simply ignored my request to fix the television in the room. After several requests, I gave up. Figured I'd just write here and warn that these folks to give a shake of horse's tail for the guests.

They do provide every imaginable type of donut for breakfast. Better enjoy them because there is no restaurant in the hotel, and the only one that's within easy walking distance is the Wendy's around the corner. Public transportation being what it is in Jackson (non-existent), I would think that once you factor in cab fare, you could stay at a much nicer place like the Old Capitol Inn and just take a cab to Millsaps. If you have a car, you'd be crazy to stay here--unless you like the disinterested attitude of the staff.

Stayed here because it is really close to the Univ. Medical Center.
Yes--you can walk to the hospital from this hotel. (I had a staff member tell me over the phone that you had to cross a major highway to get to hospital, but all it is a 4 lane road and people who work at the hosptial have to cross all the time for parking)
Room had been updated. Bathroom very small as was the double room we had. Air was not that great and still had slightly damp feeling. The hallways were another story. No updating there yet, and very hot/stuffy. The pool area looked very nice--had to go to basement floor to get there and was kind of isolated down there. Common areas are greatest plus of this hotel. Many comfortable sitting areas with couches, tables TVs. Biggest negative of this hotel is the staff. Very unfriendly, seemed liked they were more concerned with socializing with each other than guest service. Was given incorrect directions when trying to find a drug store. Exception was staffer at the reception--he was very professional and service oriented. We had to leave very early for hospital next morning and could not eat breakfast. They said I could come back and eat if I made it before cut-off time.(didn't 'cause of relative's surgery) Thought they might have offered a take-along something when we were talking at checkout, but didn't. Overall the only reason I would stay here again is location to hospital.
