The Historic Hotel Chester was on "Hotel Hell" several years ago and after that, I always wanted to stay there. While recently in town visiting our son at MS State, we decided to finally stay here. The hotel is downtown so you can walk to some cute boutique shops, restaurants, bars and a coffee shop. There is free downtown street...

We chose the Chester based on reviews we had read on this site! The hotel was well located in downtown and not far from Mississippi State University! The hotel has been well renovated but rooms are small (old hotel) and not as modern as most are used to today. That said room was clean and comfortable and staff was very...

After several stays here I just grow to love it more! This place is the real deal...and the staff always goes out of their way to make friendly and please. I love the owner and his "marine-ness" about him. I love the food and oh the Beer Garden is this great little find tucked in the midst of Starkville downtown!...

We stayed here on a 6 day trip down the Natchez Trace. We thought it would be fun to stay in a non-chain hotel for a change. Other reviews were very positive. We're not sure what hotel they stayed in. We did not expect to have to get our luggage up several steps after we got off the elevator. Shouldn't...

The hotel staff was incredible, very helpful and accommodating. Made to order was absolutely delicious. The hotel made you step back in time with the decor. Clean and refreshing stay, I generally stay at hotel chains, but if I return to Starkville, this will be my hotel to stay in

Friendly staff greet you upon check and tells you about complementary cook to order full breakfast, yes Eggs Benedict too-free! Delicious just like in a first class restaurant. Room was clean and the bed was comfortable, decorated with modern touch yet high ceiling reminds you of the history past. The Beer Garden dinner was also another first class with Gordon...

We stayed here for a wedding and reception and it was nice. Starkville has a lot of chain motels but not a lot of local hotels. This was nice and came with a cook to order breakfast. Within walking distance to other restaurants which is an advantage over some of the larger chains.

I helped move my granddaughter into her dorm @ MSU and needed a room for the night. Could only find 1 room at Hotel Chester which had 2 twin beds. I thought this is gonna be fun,but the hotel is very nice. It is a cute boutique hotel just like in the French Quarter, which served us a wonderful breakfast....
