When I checked in, I noticed some ashes and tobacco loosely scattered on the middle table. As we were just looking for an inexpensive room near Beale St, I did not complain. When I went for coffee this morning, there was no artificial sweetener, cereal with no milk and a half dozen raggedy muffins. We checked out at 10:30. Approximately... More

The only good thing about this hotel is the location. The breakfast was coffee packaged pastries and cereal. The room was ok had to get someone to come in and fix the cable on the TV. We were in the lobby one morning and a homeless man stood in the driveway and releaved himself and then stood by the window... More

Location is the only good thing about this motel. My room looked filthy, the toilet had hair in it and also some leftovers from previous use, bedding had cigarette burns in it and was stained as were the towels which barely covered your mid section. Arriving to a room like this after a long travel day was terrible. Two female... More

Room was much nicer than I expected for the price. Yes, it's low season, mid week, but it was extremely quiet. Walk back from Beale St. at midnight was deserted streets and parking lots, but I felt safe. Might feel different on a game day when the town is hopping. Would definitely stay again.

We selected this motel based on the positive reviews and booked it for one week, in advance. Once we arrived and saw our disgusting room, we could not get a refund on a 6 night stay. The room was disgusting: carpet was filthy, security lock busted, mirror missing on wall, light bulbs missing, tv was poorly functioning, key card didn't... More

Location is great, just a few blocks from Beale Street, easy walking distance. Check-in was a pain in the patootie, we got there at 11:30, she said not till 2. We went back at 1:45, she said not till 2. We went back at 2, she said rooms are not ready. I can check you in and give you a... More

I like others was scared after reading some reviews here. On arrival I found a nice clean room, non smoking, crisp white sheets, flatscreen TV, fridge, ironing board, clean ensuite. Superb value considering its a short walk to Beale Street, The Peabody Hotel etc. Go out and enjoy a night of blues and boos on Beale Street then walk back... More

I was very nervous after reading the bad reviews. For some reason it is easier to believe the bad reviews. I'm so glad we ignored the reviews and stayed at vista inn. It was clean and no bugs! I looked everywhere trying to find one. We felt safe and it's a perfect location to walk to everything. It is bare... More

This was our second choice, after seeing the first place we came here. Its closer to downtown, clean, feels fairly safe. Mini fridge, microwave, tv, decent bed, hot shower. For the price and proximity , its your best choice.

We booked the Vista Inn as we were wanting an inexpensive downtown motel for four nights, which was close to the main Memphis attractions. You are within walking distance to Beale St, the Rock and Soul Museum, the Peabody ducks and a longer stroll to the Sun Studios. The motel is certainly not luxurious but reflected the price paid which... More
