This is a charming little boutique hotel in downtown Starkville, within easy walking distance of the Cotton District and the University. My room was a small, with modern amenities somewhat awkwardly added to the space, and it was a little dank but air conditioning took care of that quickly. It was a very nice change from the cookie-cutter rooms of...

We stayed 2 nights and loved this little hotel - hotel and restaurant staff were friendly and went extra mile to provide us with what we wanted. The restaurant food did indeed live up to its hyped Gordon Ramsay influence. Quite the bargain, and if I were a regular visitor, I would definitely come back. Wish that parking was more...

Overall, a wonderful experience. I felt transported back in time - in a very good way - to a place where service matters, attention to detail is important, and a gracious and kind wait staff is experienced at every level. Visited Starkville for a family graduation party and loved Hotel Chester. The owners know the hotel business and have created...

The location is great, and the staff try really hard. As far as that goes, we had a good experience. The bed was comfy enough. BUT! The bathroom was so tiny that the basin is situated in the bedroom itself. The room was minute. Also - the basin was cracked - not a great look. The shower whined like a...

It's the perfect little hotel located in the heart of Starkville just off Main Street. Definitely a good change from the chain hotels that started with a fun front desk staff on check, followed by clean and cozy room, and cooked-to-order breakfast. Great little get away while seeing the kids at MSU.

We had a wonderful time this past weekend at Hotel Chester. Being a boutique hotel with a history, it has lots of character. Great customer service, too. Complimentary breakfast being made to order was nice touch. We just didn't stay long enough to really have time to enjoy the downtown area with all of the athletic events on campus during...

Great location downtown. Beautiful, historic building. I was able to park on street by front door but I expect that's the exception and not the rule. The room was small (queen) but it was clean and quiet. It faced inside and not much of a view. Bed is very comfortable. Definitely stay here again.

Dave, Morgan and Emma were all so accommodating and made my stay at this very nice and reasonable hotel in downtown Starkville a delightful experience (and I am an Ole Miss Rebel!).
