I booked the Vista Inn after CANCELLING another reservation elsewhere after one poor night stay. Stayed four nights at the Vista Inn and it is GREAT. Clean, safe, inexpensive, walking distance to the Peabody, Beale Street, Rock and Soul Museum, Gibson Guitar factory, National Civil Rights Museum, and-- with a bit more effort-- Sun Studios. Only a quick cab ride... More

We found the Vista Inn on my iPad while we were in Memphis. It was small, but very clean. All we wanted was a bed for the night. We walked easy to Beale Street. Girls at the front were very polite and friendly. Wi_Fi was out that day. I really didn't need it. Good price on a good room. Just... More

Friendly, good price, walking distance to Beale Street! A gem in the heart of all the expensive hotels. Small rooms, not 5 star but the value for location was well worth it! ...........................................................

First impressions were the hotel looked a little rough, but room good, clean didn't smell of smoke! Good location for downtown Memphis attractions. WiFi very slow! Happy to stay there again for location and value for money.

He gave us some great pointers to enjoy our evening. The room was ok. It didn't smell & was clean. It had a mini fridge & MW.... More

The place was clean enough but soo small! There was a hole in the wall where a smoke alarm should have been. The Wi-Fi wasn't working and the staff were rude about it. We were told that no one else had complained so it must be our problem. Beware when there is a baseball game across the street. They rent... More

I choose this motel because of the price and being walking distance to Beale st, Main St and the water front. Across the street is the ball park for baseball games. When I arrived the motel looks very dodgy and in need of a good paint! Reception was helpful. My room was fine for my 2 nights here. However the... More

We totally enjoyed staying at the Vista Inn from Friday, June 6, through June 10, 2014. Jessica, Conner and the owner, Neil were great not to mention the rest of the Staff were all friendly and helpful. Rooms are great not huge...but who wants to stay in your hotel room all day when you are on vacation. One thing I... More

Currently on a road trip and was a little worried about this choice. Absolutely no need, the location is fantastic less than 100 yards from The Peabody and right opposite the baseball stadium. Room was exceptionally clean and the shower was spot on. Neil on reception was very helpful and knowledgable. Without a doubt this is an excellent value for... More

We booked this motel for two nights as it was conveniently located for Beale Street (5 minute walk) and the main Downtown sights and attractions. It's a few blocks from the expensive hotels but obviously much cheaper. Parking is free. When we arrived it did look less than welcoming and a bit 'dodgy'. The room was not the cleanest I've... More
