Where to Stay in Bay St Louis

Bay Town Inn

Thoughtful snacks and drinks greet guests in the individually decorated rooms at Bay Town Inn in Bay St. Louis. I have stayed in the flamingo and sea turtle rooms but hope to stay in pelican, star fish, and sand dollar themed rooms on future Mississippi Gulf Coast visits. Bay Town Inn is a favorite place to stay for New Orleans residents taking weekend and vacation trips. See why! Owner Nikki Moon is a delight and is happy to provide suggestions on things to do and places to eat in Bay St. Louis. I suggest trying fresh oysters and sushi at RAW Bar and an elegant scratch breakfast at Mockingbird Cafe. McCool Travel tip: walk along the waterfront for a nice sunrise or sunset and look at the carvings in the oak trees. /m are sure you visit Ruth’s Roots for some Mississippi Coast funkiness.

Good morning from the fab Bay Town Inn in Bay St Louis, Mississippi. Would love to stay here for a week but I am off to…

Where to Stay in Pass Christian

Hotel Pass Christian

Across the street from Bacchus on the Beach and overlooking quaint Pass Christian Harbor, Hotel Pass Christian is a fun place to stay. At this 10 room boutique property opt for one of the four oversized king suites with wet bars and private patios. While in The Pass, visit the super cute Pass Books/Cat Island Coffeehouse and order some amazing oysters and steak at Whiskey Prime. McCool Travel tip: Henderson Point is a prime viewing spot for magnificent Mississippi coast sunsets.

Hotels in Biloxi MS

Margaritaville Resort Biloxi

Among the mega resort properties along the Mississippi Gulf Coast, Margaritaville is the only one without a casino. Margaritaville definitely has a family-friendly vibe, along with that 5 O’clock Somewhere and license to chill attitude.

Beau Rivage

Owned by MGM, Beau Rivage is much more than a casino resort. Relax in The Spa. Catch beautiful sunrises and sunsets from the upper floors. The biggest named entertainers appearing along the Mississippi coast will play in the Beau Rivage theatre. I do not personally like the name of their golf course, Fallen Oak (I LOVE oaks), but it is the #1 rated golf course in Mississippi.

DoubleTree Biloxi

Across the street from Biloxi Beach and The Loop, DoubleTree Biloxi is a short walking distance to downtown Biloxi, Beau Rivage, MGM Park, and Biloxi Brewing Company. I recently stayed in a room on the top floor facing the gulf and enjoyed peeks of a gorgeous #MSCoastLife sunrise.

Where to Stay in Ocean Springs

The Roost

Architectural Digest named this “beach-chic boutique” one of the most beautiful hotels in the southern US. And that was prior to this year’s magnificent renovation and expansion. I stayed in one of the five new rooms in June 2018, a week after they were completed. The Roost opened in April 2017 with six original rooms. Look for reclaimed wood, oyster shell walls, a 200 year old tub, and wonderful oak trees. On property funness includes Eat Drink Love (remarkable roast beef sandwich and delicious salads) and The Wilbur Bar (visit the Speakeasy room). I love the location of The Roost, a couple of blocks from the funky shops and eclectic eateries of downtown Ocean Springs and a couple of blocks from The Greenhouse on Porter (daily, made from scratch sweet and savory biscuits. GO!).

The Inn at Ocean Springs

The Inn at Ocean Springs is an elegant and convenient property in the heart of downtown Ocean Springs. Two luxury suites at the Washington Street location feature all the home-away-from-home amenities to make you feel comfortable. I stayed in the Avenue Suite, with a king bed and further away from the street. Two other suites are just a few blocks away in a residential setting, located in Bradford House on Bowen Avenue. Bright Eyed Brew Co occupies the front part of the building and serves made-to-order scrumptious Belgian style waffles. I cannot personally attest to their coffee but have heard rave reviews from other people. The Roost (above) is their sister property.

Gulf Hills

Although I did not stay at Gulf Hills, I did tour the lavish and incredible Love Me Tender, Love Me Suite. The King—Elvis Presley—stayed here for several consecutive and entire summers in the 1950s. The suite has three bedrooms, four bathrooms, 2,000 sq. ft of space, and vintage decor and memorabilia—and is perfect for you and your entourage. The VIP Suite is a mere two bedrooms and two bathrooms, with 1,000 sq. ft. of space. Perfect for your security detail. For larger entourages or maybe just a vacationing couple, Gulf Hills has 52 hotel rooms.

Where to Stay in Pascagoula

The Grand Magnolia

There are seven rooms available in the main house of the historic Grand Magnolia (built in 1894). The adjacent ballroom hosts weddings and events for up to 600 persons. Stay in The Little Gem, as I did, where Jimmy Buffett hung out before his latest local concert in Pascagoula—to commemorate the renaming of the town beach to Buffett Beach. Richard Chenoweth, the Grand Magnolia owner, also operates the nearby downtown Pascagoula restaurant and catering company Scranton’s.

    Thanks for the recommendations – will be useful for when I visit the area next time.

    The Roost strikes me as the most interesting of the bunch and that view from the Beau Rivage is amazing! I’d also like to stay in that Elvis Presley suite at the Gulf Hills Hotel just because: Elvis!

      Glad you have learned about some of the interesting places to stay along the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Let me know if you find more.

    I’ve never been to the Mississippi Gulf Coast so thanks for the future travel inspiration. But where should I start with all of these great lodging options? The Roost in Ocean Springs sounds good to me — I especially like the Architectural Digest recommendation for it.

    As I sit here in -17C weather in Manitoba, Canada, looking at these amazing travel options along the Mississippi coast is truly an inviting option! Thx for sharing, Charles, and all the best to you in 2019.

    This is perfect timing for an article, as we are contemplating a visit to the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Thanks for this overview of potential lodging options.

    Looks like I have a lot of charming choices when I hit the Gulf Coast again this year. Our road trip last year took us right by and yet I didn’t allow enough time for much Mississippi – clearly that needs to change!

    Looks like a beautiful area of the country Charles. Mississippi has long been on my list.
