We stayed one night in the Old Capitol Inn while attending a wedding reception there. The room was nicely decorated and had a Juliet balcony overlooking a lovely garden area. The bathroom was clean, but small - as you would expect in a historic property. The rooftop garden / bar is also a gem, but only serves drinks on Wednesday... More

Great room going at a great rate for a suite and stayed in same hotel coming back through and the room was very small but paid the same rate. Plan ahead and ask for a suite. The hotel was immaculate and the historic quality was worth the risk of staying downtown. The area was a little suspect but turned out... More

If you plan to stay in Jackson, MS and are particularly expecting to be in the downtown area (or even if you're not), you need to strongly consider this hotel. This quaint and lovely boutique hotel has a bed and breakfast feel, extremely friendly atmosphere, personal service, attention to detail, and all the southern charm you can handle. I've stayed...

This is a nice place to stop while driving East on I-20. About two miles off the highway. Located in downtown, capital building is within sight. Three story red brick building.

We spent one night and loved it! We stayed in a balcony room over the courtyard. The bed was comfortable, the room spotless , and nicely decorated. Breakfast was great! But the best part of our stay was the friendly staff! The Capitol Inn felt more like a Bed and Breakfast. Lots of character! We are already making plans to... More

This is a nice, in fact, the only, boutique hotel in Jackson. My first choice was the Fairview Inn B&B but it was full. PROS: it's in the center of Jackson, near the Capitol, and cheap. Our top of the house suite (#7, Heritage) was $169. Hip decor, gray hardwood floors, large suite, great rooftop cash-bar happy hour with singer.... More

“As others have mentioned courtyard rooms would probably be quieter. Mine was on the front of the hotel and had a lot of street noise.”
