I like others was scared after reading some reviews here. On arrival I found a nice clean room, non smoking, crisp white sheets, flatscreen TV, fridge, ironing board, clean ensuite. Superb value considering its a short walk to Beale Street, The Peabody Hotel etc. Go out and enjoy a night of blues and boos on Beale Street then walk back... More

I was very nervous after reading the bad reviews. For some reason it is easier to believe the bad reviews. I'm so glad we ignored the reviews and stayed at vista inn. It was clean and no bugs! I looked everywhere trying to find one. We felt safe and it's a perfect location to walk to everything. It is bare... More

This was our second choice, after seeing the first place we came here. Its closer to downtown, clean, feels fairly safe. Mini fridge, microwave, tv, decent bed, hot shower. For the price and proximity , its your best choice.

We booked the Vista Inn as we were wanting an inexpensive downtown motel for four nights, which was close to the main Memphis attractions. You are within walking distance to Beale St, the Rock and Soul Museum, the Peabody ducks and a longer stroll to the Sun Studios. The motel is certainly not luxurious but reflected the price paid which... More

Not sure what we were going to get given the price and some of the reviews we read but decided to chance it. It was clean and the staff was very pleasant--which makes it a winner in my book. Some repairs needed but overall it was a very good stay and would stay there again if in Memphis. As others... More

Enjoyed the Vista Inn once again. Great location. Quiet. Nice room. Nice staff. Close to Beale street. Close to baseball park. Close to Fed.ex.forum. only downside not a very filling breakfast and wish they would serve coffee all day.

Worst motel I have ever stayed at. Disrepair, unfinished repairs. exposed electrical sockets that didn't work. FILTH. Stained linens, towels and pillows.Disgusting. It was like sleeping in an ashtray. only positive was that the toilet was clean and the location was within walking distance to Beale st. Thank goodness, because you had to be drunk to fall asleep.

This motel is about a 4 block walk from Beale St. The rooms are very small, but the price is cheaper then all other hotels in downtown. All the staff I talked to was very nice. Free continental breakfast.

I can take a hole in the wall no problem, but I cannot accept unsanitary conditions. We booked non-smoking and even called the hotel to ensure we had a non-smoking room and the desk clerk assured me that our room would have never had smoking in it. Arrived and the room reeks of cigarette smoke, has an ashtray and ash... More

Staff was friendly. Had a realistic expectation of what Ppl visiting beale will be doing, hence all the rooms are smoking so.be aware of that. I don't smoke but for one night it wasn't too bad. Room was clean. Location and price can't be beat.
