This hotel looks a little shady from the outside but its a clean, rather comfortable affordable place to stay that is really really close to Beale Street. There is no room service and not even a telephone in the room so make sure you have your cell phone..but the free parking outweighs that. For all those frustrated smokers out there,... More

Having read the comments here on TA, it was with some trepidation I checked in to my room at The Vista in. Well, it is very small, it's in serious need of some TLC. It smells a bit funny, the AC is noisy and the door to the very tight bathroom didn't really fit so locking it is out of... More

My boyfriend and I spent three nights here. The location was perfect since we were frequenting beale street. Our reservation was for a king nonsmoking, which was satisfied. The rooms were clean and didn't smell of any bad or unpleasant odor (which I was afraid of based on previous reviews that we viewed). The only negative thing we could find... More

Not a thing left shortly after 9 yesterday, today at 7.30 breakfast comprised mini muffins and coffee. A cake is not breakfast, at the very least I expected cereal. Worse still is the attitude of the young woman on reception, she has mastered the art of insolence with both words and 'smiles'. ( In contrast to the young man on... More

The room was clean and parking was ample. You can walk to Beale St in 3 minutes. You can faintly hear music from Beale St while relaxing in the pool. The room was small and the Deluxe breakfast consisted of coffee and packaged small muffins:) Do yourself a favor and walk 5 minutes to Bon Ton for breakfast. This place... More

The place is a little tired looking bits clean enough and comes with free parking. It's also just very slightly off the main strip so it's in a bit of a ropey area. If you're nervous of being mugged etc then this is not the place for you. Staff in the bars told us to be careful due to crime... More

I hate that there's not a "0" star option or worse! I am now paying $1200.00 to have my son's entire 4-bedroom shared apartment exterminated for bedbugs due to the infestation he unknowingly brought home after a fraternity weekend stay at this hotel several weeks ago. He lives in a new apartment complex at his university so we know that... More

I chose this hotel for its location and price. Reading other reviews, I was a little apprehensive. Having checked out this morning, I would like to document my experience. Pros: Location: The hotel is located in a convenient location. It is a two block walk from Beale St. It is also a short walk to the Peabody and Charlie Vergos... More

Location is beyond awesome, walking distance to everything where you need to and should want to go. There is some old buildings around but thats not the hotels fault. they have done the maximum they could do to make this place be the way it is because it is an old property. and in very good condition, rooms are nice...

The hotel was clean and so was the pool. It is situated very close to beale st. The pool is open at all hours wich is cool. Basically you check in and check out without any managerial interference. Again the room was small but it was surprisingly clean which i was a little worried about. Its not in a bad... More
