We choose this hotel for its proximity to Auto Zone Park, and the hotel certainly delivered on this. That is where the pros stopped unfortunately. The reception area, is not exactly inviting, and it has a dual use as the breakfast area in the morning. After checking in I went to my room, and tried to open the door. After... More

My husband reserved this spot and when I read the reviews I was pretty worried. We had a ground floor room and enjoyed walking to Beale St. at night. We felt perfectly safe. The beds were clean (the carpet wasn't that nice) and the shower/tub faucet had a small leak. The AC was powerful and the shower pressure was fine.... More

Walking distance from Beale Street and the baseball stadium, free parking, good WiFi and clean room, would go back. Nothing to complain about, a very good quality price ratio,. The place is very quiet and its very safe too

When I first saw the exterior of the motel and then the room I was going to entitle this review “You Get What Pay For”. This was the least expensive accommodation we could find in downtown Memphis by a long shot so I was expecting it to be a little run down and worn out and I wasn’t disappointed. Around... More

This motel is about what you can expect. It's quite worn out but still clean. The staff was really friendly and helpful. The location is the best thing since it's only minutes of walking from Beale Street! The motel is also easy to access from the highway. It was a pleasant stay for a night for our short stop in...

Good and friendly staff and clean room. About 5 blocks from Beale Street and a couple from heart of downtown. Easy drive to Graceland, Civil Rights Museum and the highway. Just a block or two from perfect location. No complaints about room or service.

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...
