Oxford - Lodging -

While Oxford has no luxury hotels, a boutique hotel is planned to be located just off the Square behind city hall. It will feature a Viking Culinary Arts Institute, spa, and fine dining. Until it is built, the closest you will get to luxury is to stay at a bed and breakfast. Oxford has a large number of hotel rooms for a town of its size. However, if you are coming for a game weekend, nearly all the rooms are presold as a package deal for the season. Occasional rooms do open up though, but chances are slim. The next closest town with motels is Batesville (25 miles) to the west, Holly Springs (30 miles) to the north, Pontotoc (20 miles) to the east, Grenada (40 miles) to the south, and Senatobia (40 miles) to the northeast. Many visitors choose to stay in downtown Memphis in order to experience Beale Stree and only come in for the game, or they stay in Tunica at a casino. A viable option is to rent an RV in Memphis and stay on campus for free. You can park your RV and walk wherever you need to go the whole weekend. If you are staying in Oxford, the Downtown Inn and Suites and the Inn at Ole Miss are the most highly recommended because of the quality of the rooms, the services, and the great locations.
