This is a Bare Bones Hotel. No brochures, no maps of the city. I didn't find them very eager to help with suggestion about the city. (You will need to go to the visitors center, they are very helpful). With that being said, I got what I payed for. The room was clean, great location, within walking distance to Beale... More

Location is great especially for the money you pay for. Large rooms fully kitted out with large bed, a/c (which stinks of smoke when it's on), TV with working channels, Wifi (if sometimes a little tempermental it's fine), fridge and microwave. However... The carpet is filthy, I wore my white clean slippers and after just 2 days walking about in... More

The hotel staff was very friendly & helpful. The bed and pillows were so comfortable - my husband & I both slept like a baby. Room & bathroom were clean. Excellent location to Beale St. - closer than I expected. We were located one block from the Peabody and paid much less. Breakfast was enough to get us by -... More

The place is central and clean. It is basic but perfect if you want to be near everywhere. i wouldn't rely too much on breakfast, the first morning there was muffins, yoghurts and coffee available.Wi-fi is very patchy and didn't work most of the time. The receptionist was probably not very helpful and was extremely impatient and created a bad... More

This hotel is located in the heart of downtown Memphis and excellent for walking to downtown events. However because of the low price the hotel is in need of a renovation and professional staff. Customer service is lacking

A couple of days after our stay I checked my credit card account and discovered I had been charged an extra $250 by this motel. I called 6 times before someone was able to give me an explanation, saying I had broken the shower?! I hadn't broken the shower and wasn't consulted about this before they charged me. The manager...

I booked a room here two years ago and my husband did not want to stay purely because our one queen bed room was at the very back tucked away down a dark hallway and the window of our room faced a not very pleasant looking back street with bars or a grill on the window. This time around I... More

I wanted a bed and bathroom walking distance to Beale St., this fit the bill. The woman at the front desk was pleasant and helpful, she did a good job of making me feel appreciated and welcome when we arrived. I was booked into a room with double beds and she switched me to a King. She and the staff... More
