It is a pretty standard motel; it was clean and quiet so I had no complaints. The breakfast was pathetic though, if I remember rightly it was just muffins in the office? (If that). Location for me is really important; I can justify sleeping on a lumpy mattress and wash in low pressure shower if it means my room is... More

An amazing location with less than a five minute walk to Beale Street! Several friends and I picked this hotel for part of our spring break trip because of its great location and affordable rates-- we were not disappointed. The parking lot and pool are rough and we did find some stains on our sheets, but the rest of the... More

The Vista Inn was the perfect hotel for the price. My friends and I were able to walk right to Beale Street (less than 5 minute walk). It’s in a great spot that allowed us to travel quickly between the two. The hotel is not the nicest, but for broke college kids it was the perfect place to stay. It... More

We were pleasantly surprised. It is older by it was clean comfortable and in a great location! So close to Beale street and if... More

I booked 4 rooms for the weekend of the Memphis St. Patrick's Day parade. We all were a little apprehensive because of several of the reviews. We were wrong. We all had a great.experience. The rooms, although not big, were clean and functional. Jessica at the front desk was always pleasant and helpful. In fact, I suggest management give her... More

Place gets absolutely NO stars!! The fact that they call themselves an "Inn & Suites" is a joke! This is a Motel at the most...and I am being generous by not sticking an adjective in front of Motel. We checked in and were given a dirty room. Went back down to the front office and clerk was apologetic and gave... More

Im a 21 year old college student. Me and some friends went down to Beale street over our spring break. This hotel was perfect. Located very close to brake street, in a safe area and at a GREAT price. People usually only write reviews when they have a terrible experience and it drags down a hotels rating. But I had... More

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
