In a good location for Beale St, and half the price of any hotel in the area, and has free parking but the place is tired and in need of major repair, oddly though the bed was comfortable, it will do for 1-2 nights but no more.

We had 3 rooms reserved for my sisters and brother, we stayed there for 2 nights in September. 1st off, we had reservations from orbitz, we reserved non smoking, but for some reason it came up as smoking rooms at the Inn, but it was no problem and the girl at the desk put us in the right rooms. Although... More

If you are on a budget stay here, how often do you just sit in your room? I never do, I travel to travel! The sheets were clean (I think) but the bedding was not. The room smelled and the breakfast was bad but what do you expect for 50 bucks and walking distance to the main part of Memphis... More

WOW, what a dump!! I have honestly never stayed in a hotel where I basically cried myself to sleep because I felt so disgusting just being in the room. There was mold (of the black and green varieties) on the ceiling, huge (blood?) stains on the carpets and hairs on the bed and in the bathroom towels. There were drunk... More

This arrogant manager gives you sub par accommodations and throws you out if you dare to complain. Cable not working for television, wall mount for cable ripped out of wall, heater/ air conditioner cover broken off, bathroom door put in at a angle and won't close, dirty furniture, brick bed and he tells us after driving 8hrs from Chicago to...

Positives first - the location was good with all the downtown action just a short stroll away, the price was very reasonable compared to any other nearby options, and the on-site self-parking was a major bonus. Now for the negatives - the room was a little cramped and shabby, but given the price that's to be expected, however, there is... More

The hotel has gone down over the last few years but Jessica at the front desk has always been the greatest and friendly. She needs to find a job at a better place. The motel was not the cleanest and we had to wait for towels and washcloths. No fridge or microwave in the room as advertised. No iron or... More

When you drive up to this hotel you ask yourself, what was I thinking? To the right is a bedraggled, bankrupt business with old factory windows falling out. To the left is a vacant, fenced lot. Yes, it is walking distance to Beale Street and reasonably priced, but still, it looks dicey. The hotel people are friendly, but the rooms... More

Went on a last minute trip and didn't want to spend a lot of money. Within walking distance of Beale street. The hotel is older but it has been painted and the bathrooms redone. The rooms are small but have everything you need. The beds are comfortable actually. I have spent way more money and had a worse nights sleep.... More
