“Clean, new, road side motel. A very good value”
We took a chance on this motel. We needed a pet-friendly hotel in Vicksburg and read a single review on the Econo Lodge on this website that was positive. Since then this hotel has become the Travel Inn.
After staying in some really grody motels on a long road trip with our pooch I was ready for the worst. But this motel was a wonderful surprise. It is nothing special in terms of ambiance or location, but it is clean, clean, clean. And, there is not a single stitch of wear and tear in the rooms. The walls are clean, newly plastered, the paint is fresh, the upholstry is clean, and everything works. It's was a joy to open the room and actually find a cool, clean place that I didn't mind hanging out in for the night!
The room we had had a King bed, small couch, AC, fridge, microwave, large vanity and separate bath. The bathroom looks new too. All very nice...and super clean, I loved it!
There is also free wireless. Nice!
The down-side? It is not in a beautiful area. It's on a boring frontage road, but hey, so are all the other chain hotels that cost just as much. Our cost for the night (with dog) was $77 per night. I think this is a very reasonable deal.
Overall, we were pleased as punch by the condition of the Travel Inn. We only needed a place to stay for the evening and did not need it to be cute, quaint or historic. This hotel did the job.
I should also add that the motel is reasonably close to the Military Park. We made arrangements the day before to have a private guided tour of the Military Park--so that we could see the hightlights relatively quickly and then hit the road again. If you call ahead you can arrange a guide for the hour the park opens (8am; when it is less hot in the summer). The guides are $35/2 hr tour and they can do the Military Park and downtown Vicksburg if you like. The number to call is [--]. They are super helpful and will even recommend restaurants!
