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.

I highly enjoyed my stay at Vista Inn in Downtown Memphis. When I called to make my reservation I spoke to Gina. She was very kind and warm. I had a million questions for her but she answered each one gracefully. She actually made me want to stay at this hotel. When I arrived I was able to meet Gina... More

Checked into room on 10/3 and suspected bedbugs after reading past reports. Looked all over mattress and did not see any. Followed my instinct and went to another hotel for the weekend. My friends that did not leave for another hotel stayed there and ended up seeing bedbugs in their rooms. The hotel management was not helpful and I suspect... More

Initially it appeared "ok" but soon discovered the toilet continued a fill/flush cycle. Went to office and was told maintenance person available to fix it tomorrow, not tonight. Then went back and found the bath door very squeaky and asked for WD40 - sorry, not available. After a miserable night, asked manager for a partial rebate. He insisted that he... More

A step up from a roach motel, the pine scent was overwhelming. Fairly clean, a little run down could not get the diverter to work in the shower..(operator error), wifi was crappy, but 4 blocks from Bealle is hard to beat.

If you are looking for a clean, dependable hotel in Memphis with a great location then this motel is the place to stay. I had read many reviews about hotels in Memphis and was a bit nervous about choosing a safe and clean one since many of the reviews were pretty bad. The Vista Motel is clean, has a great... More

Vista Inn and Suites was exactly what we expected. The hotel is very clean and surprisingly quiet. About a 4-5 block walk to Beale Street but we never felt unsafe and the walk is easy. If youre looking for a reasonable room rate, clean room and friendly staff..stay here! Will definitely return.
