This was a real well appointed hotel. The room was very nice and very clean. And the bed was very comfortable. Our compliments to the staff. They were most accommodating. Breakfast was better than most because they gave us a $25 coupon for two of us. And it was made to order. Easily within the amount allotted. It was a...

We went to the Mississippi museum for the afternoon and this place is convenient to stay at for that purpose. Anyway, our check-in was quick and painless with the friendly people at the desk. The room was very...

Went to the "new" restaurant in the downtown Holiday Inn. The host did not acknowledge our arrival, much less our existence. This restaurant is small so it is hard to miss incoming customers. However, I was not alone as I watched him throughout our meal-he even "motioned" an elderly couple to a table. Really? You can't escort them? It took...

Great location! Near many attractions, shops, cafe's, restaurants and bars. Pool is very small, much smaller than it seems in the pictures. No continental breakfast, but kids eat free. Food is very good. Friendly staff. Overall good stay.

Stayed twice at this location only for the location. The hotel is old and the beds are extremely uncomfortable. I would rather stay farther next time. They have a great location, it would be so nice if they could remodel and make this place the it should be.
