“Good breakfast, awesome lunch and dinner”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

Staying at the Old Capitol Inn, I was pleasantly surprised that a very good breakfast buffet was included with the room. As there was much to choose from as well including meats, cold fruit, cereal, juices, grits, and biscuits. The lunch menu (they call the Sunroom) has a somewhat limited, but over the top delicious choices that vary slightly from day to day. Although not officially open for dinner, I was informed that food could be prepared upon request when advised by someone in our business travel group. I chose the grilled shrimp salad over a hamburger and it was impeccable. At the end of the day all of the out of town people stopped by to enjoy the beautiful garden together. Even if not staying at the hotel it is worth a drop by.

“"Absolutely perfect and charming hotel with Southern breakfast!"”
Reviewed 5 May 2014 via mobile

What a jewel of a place is the Old Capitol Inn, just a couple of quick walking blocks from the State Capitol Bldg! So glad that Vivian told us it is so wonderful, all true! It is a classy old building, renovated with themed bedroom suites: we has the "Elvis Sleeps" room, and had a very comfy king sized bed and much Elvis decor, books and a golden record, plus wonderful shag carpeting, microfridge and a shower with a seat!(see pics). The first floor has a small sitting area and they have complimentary wine and cheese there nightly. Checkout the beautifully beviled glass doors to thd rest rooms, and the lovely garden, fountain, coi pond. They have weddings every weekend there, and there is a lovely reception room. There is also a roof garden, and a breakfast dining area for the included Southern breakfast which had eggs, bacon, ham, real grits, hot biscuits, cinnamon rolls/muffins with real butter, juices, milk, cereal, yogurt, whole fruit and cut up fresh fruit. Just yummy! The price is surprisingly reasonable, and the managers and staff are great. Burkie told us that this winter Dan Aykroyd, Chad Bozeman and the cast of the new "James Brown" movie stayed there while filming in Jackson (see pic). Parking is free, safe and gated. Many niceties including an electric charging station at the side door for electric cars. And a unique idea was that the tiny envelope for your room key has printed on it all the info you need, such as wifi password, breakfast hours, gate access code, etc. Very thoughtful, and an ideal location! We loved it.

“Decent breakfast and lunch for a hotel”
Reviewed 1 August 2013

Breakfast (included) was better than at chain hotels; nice crab cakes at lunch, though nothing exceptional.
