The front staff are very nice, very talkative, informed me of tours to Graceland. The motel itself is located quite close to Beale St. Which is great for late nights. It's literally around the corner and one block up. The room was ok, we were trying to keep it on a budget but it was clean. No bugs or unwanted... More

holy gods. If this place put as much into their rooms as they did photo shopping the photos it would be 1/2 decent. Our room was gross. No phone. People walking through the lot setting off car alarms and a nice juicy pile of vomit two steps from the door the next day. If it had not been a family... More

This is a hidden gem. You can walk to Beale St and the Peabody Hotel! Rate is very reasonable and the rooms are very clean and the staff are very friendly. If you want a place that you can walk back to after some BBQ, music and a few fun drinks this is the place to stay!

When a hotel is charging 80 bucks a night, even being near the illustrious and historical Sun Studios, they should be able to offer a decent breakfast. They bill themselves as offering brekkie but when you walk into front office it's store bought mini muffins and a coffee squirter...that's it. No juice, water, etc. Wifi is shoddy and only works...

I usually do not give a review, but I HAVE TO on this place. I read the reviews on tripadvisor, and decided it was ugly on out side, but ok on the inside, There is no wifi, and it is very hot in Memphis. We turned the air conditioner on and headed to the famous(Paul Vargas BBQ Restaurant) which was... More

The bed was comfortable and the parking is really free, which is great because you can walk to beale street in 5 minutes. Wifi works fast (10mo/s). Neighborhood looks scary but is not. this is about it for the good things. You will find barely clean rooms, with bad odors in every room including the bathroom and the closet. We... More

The room is really basic but acceptable for one or two nights. The hotel is about five minute walk from to Beale Street and the Peabody Hotel if you fancy staring at a few ducks! Free parking which is good. Overall it's fine for the price but you get what you pay for...

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
