Don't believe the bad reviews. It's a decent economy hotel that has what you want. Close to Beale St, Sun & not too far from Stax. Yes there may be some characters about the area after dark but they seemed to leave tourist types alone. Had no trouble except the blazing heat walking about anywhere during the day. Not sure...

It was not at all what the picture showed on the internet. Then the second night we were there the heat went out in our room and when we asked about it, they didnt fix it, all they did was put a space heater in the room. They could not speak English so the language barrier was horrible. I do... More

I came to this hotel in 2012 and had nothing to complain about it except the very small lobby and breakfast area. This time I was not satisfied. Our room was not so good smelling and it looked run down. I am not sure if I will come back here.

The first impression was not good. We had pre-booked so we felt obliged to stay. It is in a residential downtown district not far from the Sun Studios and easy to get to most places of interest by car. The room was huge with two queen beds, table and chairs, sofa and chests of drawers. The carpet was badly stained... More

Where to start? The place smelled of room deodorizer so badly we had to air it out. The beds and linens are very old (I travel with my own linens as I have allergies to some soaps) so I used mine. The chair was so wobbly I was afraid to sit in it, so I reported it to the front... More

Not in the best part of Memphis, but the place has a great price and large clean rooms. The area is a bit sketchy but if you comfortable in your own skin this place will work for you. I have stayed here twice and I will be back. Clean, cant beat the price.

We were pleasantly surprised after pulling up to this hotel. It's not the best looking and it backs up to a pretty rough area. However, it's also close to some fun places and the rooms were huge! They were fairly clean and the other guests were mostly families so it really wasn't bad for the price!

The hotel itself was clean and nice. The staff wasn't as forthcoming as other places such as telling you where to go, what to see, etc. It would have been nice to know how dangerous our part of town was because my friend and I were robbed at gunpoint less than five minutes away from the hotel. Always take a... More

Very clean! Seems recently renovated. Our only negative comment would be that no self serve ice machine. But overall, great stay! Free wifi with good signal. Very friendly staff. If we are ever in Memphis, we will definitely be staying here!
