Located in Clinton, just minutes from Mississippi College, Comfort Inn & Suites offers guests a quiet retreat with access to a heated indoor pool and hot tub. In each room and suite, pillow-top mattresses and down pillows offer a soothing spot to unwind. Additionally, all rooms come with free WiFi and cable TV, both welcome alternatives to the sandman’s late-night standup routine. In the morning, guests can chow down on a hot breakfast buffet of eggs, meat, yogurt, fresh fruit, and waffles.
The hotel sits just outside Jackson in the suburb of Clinton. There's a distinct small-town vibe in downtown Clinton, where the brick-layered Main Street district is lined with art galleries, antique shops, and second-hand stores with colorful awnings. Outside of its old-fashioned charm, Clinton is also just a short drive from the casinos of Vicksburg, about 30 miles from the hotel.
Mazzio's Italian Eatery's staff rolls out a buffet for lunch and dinner populated with tasty Italian cuisine that they also serve à la carte. The restaurant's staff has been perfecting its culinary modus operandi for more than 50 years, long enough to evolve the pizza selection to include three levels of thickness. Chefs bake standard, deep-dish, and thin crusts—available in gluten-free form—and load each with toppings such as caramelized onions and giant pepperoni. The kitchen makes pasta plates to order, some baked in the oven, such as lasagna, and some tossed in sauce, such as the mainstay spaghetti and meatballs. The signature calzone radiates the ambrosial scent of pizza dough stuffed with meat and cheese, and it's meant to be shared, unlike a pogo stick.

Curves is a fitness center designed exclusively for women; each membership can be used toward unlimited visits as well as free weight-management classes led by trained professionals. Curves houses a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines designed to work with women's bodies to promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and cope with arthritis. Instead of guests fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches each exerciser's abilities. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, machines use push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can. Every thigh- or torso-transformer is equipped with the CurvesSmart personal-coaching system, which uses programmed information on weight, endurance level, and fitness goals to automatically calibrate the perfect challenge for individual bodies. The CurvesSmart system also delivers a postworkout rundown on the strength built and progress achieved during each session. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage machine-maneuvering and to squirt overheated guests with a Super Soaker.
