The city of Jackson, Mississippi, is known as the City with Soul for its triumphant spirit. It played integral roles in the Civil Rights Movement, the Civil War and the development of blues and jazz music. Artists, musicians, filmmakers and more contribute to a thriving arts scene in the city. But the best part about a visit to Mississippi’s capital? It’s totally affordable, especially with these great cheap hotels in Jackson – bookable on Culture Trip.

1. Hilton Garden Inn Jackson Downtown, for central perks

The Hilton Garden Inn is located in a gorgeous historic building in downtown Jackson – you’ll enter through grand columns into an elegant lobby with a dramatic staircase and wrought iron chandeliers. Book a standard king or queen room, or upgrade to a room that comes stocked with drinks and snacks. You’re less than 1mi (1.6km) from some of the city’s major attractions, such as Jackson State University, the Mississippi Coliseum and the Old Capitol Museum.

2. Old Capitol Inn, for a heritage honeymoon

After sitting vacant for several years, a local family purchased the building that used to house the city’s YWCA to renovate it and reopen it as a bed and breakfast. The Malouf family still owns the inn and it has become a premier destination for affordable stays, weddings and events (especially thanks to its beautiful New Orleans-style courtyard). Book a whirlpool tub honeymoon suite if you’re seeking a romantic getaway.

3. Residence Inn by Marriott Jackson The District at Eastover, for a pet-friendly pit stop

This extended-stay hotel delivers supreme comfort, whether for a few days, weeks, or even months. The spacious suites include separate living and sleeping areas, as well as full kitchens. Plus, the hotel is pet-friendly, so you don’t have to leave your furry friend at home. A quick 10-minute drive takes you to downtown and nearby attractions. When you’re not out exploring, relax at the hotel’s outdoor pool or putting green.

If you’re in town for some fun – maybe a game of basketball or a show – you couldn’t be in a better spot, next door to the 10,000-seater Mississippi Coliseum. Even better, book your stay to coincide with the 12-day Mississippi State Fair, when the grounds around the Coliseum heave with rides and amusements. In the meantime, fuel up with free breakfast, take a dip in the outdoor pool or relax in spacious rooms and suites.

5. Hampton Inn & Suites Jackson - Coliseum, for museum meandering

Also next door to the Mississippi Coliseum and Fairgrounds, the Hampton Inn has plenty of attractions within a 5mi (8km) radius – downtown is just 1mi (1.6km) away. The popular Fondren district, as well as the Mississippi Children’s Museum and the Museum of Natural Science are just a short drive away, while adventurers can visit nearby LeFleur’s Bluff State Park. Back at the hotel, retreat to large, modern rooms and take advantage of the outdoor pool.

6. Jackson Downtown Convention Center Hotel, for car-free cruising

Chain Hotel

If you’re coming car-free to Jackson, then walkability will be key. In that case, book your stay at the Jackson Downtown Convention Center Hotel, just steps from the State Capitol, Governor’s Mansion, Mississippi Museum of Art, Smith Park, and all of downtown’s upscale eating and drinking spots. As for the hotel itself? Rooms are generous, and luxury amenities including a rooftop pool and terrace make the rates feel even better value.

Located within Jackson’s business district, the Hilton Jackson is for the movers and shakers. Plenty of meeting and event space means you can get business done during the day and then unwind at night with cocktails at Fitzgerald’s, followed by dinner at Drago’s Seafood (try the famous charbroiled oysters). An executive floor of the hotel offers large one-bedroom suites with kitchenettes. An outdoor pool and fitness center top the list of amenities.
