Let's start with the PROS: Room was very clean, housekeeper was very nice and did a wonderful job. Bed was comfortable, had microwave, and frig. We got the ground floor as requested. Close to Beale Street where most of our time was spent. CONS::NO HAIRDRYER, NO COFFEE POT IN ROOM, towels were cheap hardly big enough to dry off. When... More

Do not stay here! Yes it's central but there are other central places with honest staff. Myself and my girlfriend stayed here for one night-two days. It was her second trip to Memphis and the Vista Inn. As it was her second time and my first. We went about our day seperately and met in the afternoon/evenings. On our last... More

Disgusted, is mild for my experience. My family and I stayed at the Vista Inn on Union St in Memphis because the price was good and it was close to Beale St. I guess the price doesn’t pay off. The room reeked of strong smelling cat pee. When I asked for a new room the front desk lady got mad... More

Decent price for a decent motel in a great location just outside of the downtown area (5 minute walk to Beale St). No breakfast but plenty of parking and the rooms look out onto a great sunset over the small pool. Not the greatest area to walk around, but a short (5min) drive to Sun studios in a straight shot...

My wife and I stayed here 1 night and the motel is as read in the trip reports. Our non smoking room was at the far end of the second floor. The room itself was clean, decent size with a big closet, clean bathroom with good hot water pressure. The only bummer was the TV didn't work because the clerk... More

After travelling around the states for a couple of weeks and staying in the cheapest hotels I can find, this place actually suits at the top so far. Friendly guy at the front desk, room was very clean and air con was great, location was all good. Wifi was a little glitchy, but that is the only thing I could... More

We were here for one reason - to get to Beale. We got here and were just a couple of blocks from our destination. The price was just what we needed to ensure we could definitely enjoy ourselves. The rooms are small but we had no intention of hanging out in them. The bathrooms were clean as was the room... More

Stayed here for 2 nights. Its a great value, the room was clean, comfortable and walking distance to Beale St if you want to go out in the evening. There is a Denny's across the street if you need a bigger breakfast than the continental that is offered. Didn't get to use the pool but saw several people gathered in... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. At first i have to be honest i thought 'why did i book us in here'? The place looks a bit shabby from the outside and its right next to a disused garage. However dont judge a book by its cover. Staff were nice, room spacious and clean and the location is amazing. Literally stumbling... More

I booked the Vista Inn after CANCELLING another reservation elsewhere after one poor night stay. Stayed four nights at the Vista Inn and it is GREAT. Clean, safe, inexpensive, walking distance to the Peabody, Beale Street, Rock and Soul Museum, Gibson Guitar factory, National Civil Rights Museum, and-- with a bit more effort-- Sun Studios. Only a quick cab ride... More
