Not as nice as the pictures would indicate. Priced a little high for what it is, but location probably commands the price. Basically it is clean, the towels are on the small side but not worn out as we have seen in other motels.

Location can't be beat, 2 blocks from The Peabody and a short walk to Printer's Alley. We were upgraded to a comfortable king bed room with a great shower. A scrambled egg breakfast was just enough to get us going in the morning and front desk personnel were very accommodating and friendly.

We stayed overnight to see a little bit of Memphis. Really nice staff, free parking (with cameras in the lot) and really close to sub studios and Beale St. If you've never been to Memphis keep in mind it has a high unemployment rate, you are not going to NYC or Chicago. We saw some problems (ie a lot of... More

The location is really good, if you want to be close to downtown/Beale Street. I'm guessing this is the reason for the $60 a night price tag. The hotel is generally quite bad. We were in a smoking room which probably didn't help much, with cigarette burn holes in the blankets. The door would open in the middle of the... More

This place is a crap motel 2+ blocks off Beal street. There is no phone in the room to even call the office. Our first room the shower didn't work. There is no coffee service. This place is over priced by far. I will say the bed was good to sleep on. But it was shady environment.

The location was great. It is within walking distance from downtown and Beale street. Its not the Ritz, but for an overnight its okay. The price can't be topped. It's a little rundown but clean. Parking and free Wifi in downtown Memphis for $100, don't expect the Peabody.

We thank you for choosing to stay with us, but dismayed your overall Memphis experience was not as expected. As members of the downtown business community, rest assured we will work with our city leaders to make our hometown a better place for others to come and visit. More

This hotel is literally within walking distance to Beale St, The Peabody Hotel, and the Civil Rights Museum. The Hotel itself seemed ok however, the sink was clogged and the room would not lock. Management did change our rooms, but beware, check your door once you close it. We checked and it was still unlocked when we returned. Thank God... More

I saw the reviews online and thought I would take a chance on this hotel based on it's location to Beale street and for it's price. I am so glad that we took a chance because we absolutely loved this hotel!! It is blocks away from downtown and Beale Street. The rooms are comfortable and clean. We will be back... More
