Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Pejay427 Would stay again despite issues.
Have stayed at this property three times so far in the past eight months. I would recommend it because of its location and price. I do feel that more could be done but it seems that they are happy being mediocre. When we stayed there in Sept. 2013 we had to change rooms because there were no room darkening shades on the windows. On our visit in December we were not given the top floor as we had asked for due to the same issue. Seems they want guests awakened by the early morning Sun as rooms still were without those shades. The biggest issue we had was room service. We had requested a 7:15am breakfast. At 7:20 it had not arrived and we received a call from a lady asking us if we still wanted it. Thinking it we be right up I said yes. Forty minutes later I was at the desk stating my complaint that breakfast still hadn't arrived. While at the desk, my wife called to say it had arrived. The lady delivering it said she not only had to deliver it but cook it also. I admit the breakfast was good but the extra time was unaceptable. Apparently they prefer running short staffed. One other thing that I had registered a complaint about was that there was no shower safety bars in any of the rooms we had occupied. As I stated, we feel they (owners/managers) are happy with mediocrity.

When arrived there were no baggage carts. The girl at the front desk as a worker about one and he said he didn't know. He didn't even look. The food was over priced for the type of food. My breakfast was cold so the cook just microwaved it. NOT GOOD.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Chucky1 Staff is great
The staff is VERY helpful, but the bathroom in my room was horrible. The flush knob for the toilet feel off, the bathroom has a 2 foot crack in the middle and the room smelled like an animal. Was suppose to get a deal due to a wedding and did not. Not very honest there.

Spent four nights here, as we've done in years past. Staff was gracious and very attentive. Jarel was especially helpful anytime we needed to contact the front desk. We choose this hotel each year because we feel like it's "home" when in Hattiesburg. The atrium feels like a big living room - not a cold impersonal lobby
The fitness center is clean and has good equipment. While we didn't use the indoor pool, many other families were taking advantage of it on such cold nights.
We can always count on a comfortable stay and great service when we are there. We don't even consider other hotels in the area anymore.
See you next year!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by BamaTraveler Disappointing
It's unfortunate to see this location going down hill as I have enjoyed staying here in the past. The shower curtain rod was very loose and caused the curtain to hang down in the middle. I could not keep the shower water in the tub. Result: very wet floor that I had to wipe up myself. The tub drain was very slow draining so I was standing in ankle deep water during my shower. I checked out the next morning even though I was going to stay in town for a couple more days. The one high point was the desk person when I checked out and voiced my complaint. He was very courteous and apologetic although moving me to another room and comping the next night would have probably been a good gesture. If I do try this location again I will check the room out before officially checking in. I think some room renovation may be in order.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dirtgirl Great hotel in a perfect location
We enjoyed this hotel very much. Great price for a really nice place. Very comfortable rooms, huge shower (could easily fit 4 people), nice to have a wet bar with refrig. and microwave and extra sink. The restaurant is a hidden treasure. We ordered dinner and went and picked it up. Very reasonable prices, very good food. Should have a menu in every room (ours did not have one but we picked them up and left them in the room).

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Faith03 Great service
Everything was great except for the in room coffee machine. It had an old dried up coffee pouch in it and we ran three water cycles through it but the water still came out dirty. We just ended up getting coffee in the lobby.
The dishwasher was also broken and kept cycling unless left unlocked, which wasn't a big deal but still should be fixed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dejaoo7 Excellent Customer Service
The service was perfect. The bathroom could've been cleaner, especially the tub. But, when I brought this to their attention, it was taken care of right way & I didn't have that problem for the remainder of my stay. The food could've been cooked better for the price they charged. The appetizer was cooked better than the entree. But the mixed drinks were mixed perfectly (not too much, not too little).

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Engdave Good hotel but bad internet
The hotel overall is very nice except for one issue the internet is almost useless. So slow and laggy that you cannot watch a movie. The restaurant in the hotel is actually not bad at all. Overall I recommend but will not continue to recommend if they do not improve the internet.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by mrswashington2u disappointing
I was a little disappointed in this hotel. I am a Priority Rewards member, and chose this hotel for my family reunion. There were quite a few issues that several of my family members had, and I feel they were not resolved in the correct manner. I have contacted corporate and the hotel after my stay and haven't not heard back from anyone. I do love the IHG brand, and stayed in them all the time in the past. I may have to rethink now. This is the 2nd issue that I have had at a Holiday Inn that I have had in the last 6 months, with poor resolution. However, there was a gentleman, and I believe his name was Terrance or Clarence, that worked there in the evening. He tried his best to take care of us, and did a TREMENDOUS job. I have family in Hattiesburg, and unfortuntately, when I return, I will most likely not be returning here.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Raynice Service could be more conscientious
I wish I could rate my stay at this hotel higher, but I cannot due to several instances. First, our room was never cleaned and our beds were never made during our entire four day stay. Upon calling the front desk after day one, we were told that the privacy sign must have been left on the door, but it was not. Since our room was never cleaned, we never received clean towels; the old ones still remained in a pile on the floor. The first time I requested towels, I received 4 wash cloths and 4 RUGS!!! No towels at all! I just feel the staff could be more conscientious of the service even after they are made aware of it.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MarkandKim nice front desk employees, but rooms need work
Arthur at the front desk made a great first impression and should be commended. When I got to my room, I immediately smelled cigarette smoke and harsh chemicals used to hide the odor. The bed sagged and the couch smelled like cigarette smoke. The shower had no pressure. My observations were not enough to complain about, but the quality of this hotel is no where close to what I expected. I would not have stayed here if I had my children with me.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Carrieon New chef = awesome food!!!
The food was awesome! I ordered room service both nights and it was great both times! Hotel staff was super friendly and helpful. My AC didn't stop working in the middle of the night. I notified the front desk and was brought up a fan within minutes. Things like this will happen from time to time. But what really matters is the way the staff handles these situations. Your staff handled the matter quickly and professional.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pejay427 Worth the visit
Before booking this hotel I had read the reviews and wondered what I was going to encounter, expecting the worst. Well, from arrival to checkout everything was great. Starting with check in I realized I had made an error in booking. The lady at the desk was friendly and accomodating, did what she had to do to get us our room. I can say nothing bad about our room, it suited us just fine, very comfy. We did use the restaurant for breakfast on one occasion. The waitress, service and food was typical. I feel they could of had more staff as our waitress was also doing room service as well. We stayed for five days and without question I would stay here again, and even highly recommend it. We have had some less than pleasant experiences in some IHG hotels, but that certainly wasn't the case here.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Elite11 Too costly for accommodations
This was such a disappointment to us. The 1st room was so horrible that none of us slept at all. The sofabedl should be immediately thrown away. The room was over the restaurants so when the patrons were leaving at last hours, they gathered under the room and continued their discussions. The bathroom is literally in the kitchen, and that was uncomfortable for all. We finally decided that if we were going to enjoy this vacation, we would have to move, so we decided to get two adjoining rooms where everyone would have a bed. The cost was very high, but at that point it was the only decision. The printer never worked the entire time of the trip. We had to go across to the next hotel and ask to use their facilities. They were gracious, but it only needed a cartridge and Hattiesburg is large enough to have plenty of office supply stores. Both pools together would not make a descent sized pool. It is only big enough for children to splash, and never was intended for swimming. By Thursday, the hotel was extremely crowded, and things only got worse.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Smeece22 Do NOT stay here!
I am a frequent traveler because of military obligations and my hotel of choice has always been Holiday Inn but I can honestly say that this was the worst hotel that I have ever stayed in. On a recent trip to Florida my family and I decided to stop halfway in Hattiesburg, MS and chose the local Holiday Inn & Suites. Mistake! It started with the very smart-mouthed and rude young girl at the front desk who informed me that my online reservation had not "made it" to their computer so they had no idea what kind of room I had reserved and that if I wasnt happy about it I "didnt have to stay there". I had reserved a Suite because price-wise it was the same as a double bed rm. After 3 attempts I finally was set up in the rm I wanted but by no means was this a Suite. The stove had no knobs on it and if it did I would be too scared to turn them on. The shower curtain rod was barely hanging on causing the curtain to sag to the middle. The entire floor had a cigarette smell to it and I was told this was a non-smoking facility. My kids were excited to see the outside pool but after looking down at it from our rm and seing how murky the water was I wasnt about to let them in it. The pumps werent even running. The next morning we went down to the restaurant for breakfast and after waiting 30 minutes with only one other family there (another family got fed-up and was leaving when we got there) we finally got our food. Only good comment is that the food was decent. Do yourselves a favor and bypass this hotel.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by TDm2 Great bed, horrible food
This is a very old building with a strange floor plan/hallways. Our room and bed were comfortable, but the bathroom was very outdated. Do not recommend eating at the restaurant. We ordered the Philly Cheesesteak platter and were very disappointed to be served a hamburger with red and green peppers on top. Hamburger is NOT cheesesteak. Could not eat this mess. The waiter never offered to exchange or refund our money when we finally hunted him down to pay our bill and leave. Doubt we will be staying here again.
