Was a little worried after reading reviews, and even apologized in advance to my son before we got there. But the place was actually quite decent! Very acceptable, and I travel a lot. Clean fresh linen, Clean bathroom. Fresh paint. Smelled fresh. Nice young couple at the front desk. So, so tickled about the location. Its like you're practically ON... More

In '80/'90, surely was an average standard motel. Cleanliness was ok. Bed enough comfortable. Connection WiFi in the morning didn't work at all ! Breakfast was...was there a breakfast ? Though the good location and the free parking, in my opinion is overpriced.

Best location I have ever stayed at in memphis, the area seems sketchy but its really not its only a short walk to beale street. All the other hotels in downtown are 5 star and within walking distance so can't complain. Beds were very comfortable, sheets we white and clean i searched thoroughly after reading reviews but found nothing. The... More

The location to Beale Street is the best thing about this dump...and the price that goes with it! The place is in desperate need of renovation and a seriously good clean. I don't think the windows in the room had been cleaned in years. You need a good night out in Memphis sampling plenty of delicious beer and music to... More

Having caught wind that there was a very real possibility that our trip to Memphis may be cut short (if not canceled altogether) and with the usual no-refund-for-last-minute-cancellations hotel policy in mind, we opted to look for a budget hotel located as near to downtown as possible. With these criteria, Vista Inn was where we ended up staying. First thing... More

Budget hotel, but NOT at a budget price. Should be lower than they charge. Rooms OK, but as basic as possible. The public areas of the motel however are filthy. Cigarette butts and spilt drinks everywhere. Feel free to remove the big bag of garbage from the door to enter your room left by the "cleaner".

Hotel had a great location, Beale street and baseball stadium are just about one a block away. Hotel was clean and quiet at a very reasonable rate compared to other hotels close to Beale Street. It is a no frills hotel but all i needed to enjoy my stay. Breakfast was very limited to only a few items but I... More
