If they had a training school on customer service, Drew and Jonathan would be the Lead Teachers. They helped our family during the booking process, throughout our stay and during checkout. We stayed here for our family reunion. The facilities were well kept and the entire staff was great.

We really enjoyed the spacious room and the food was really good. The dining staff were friendly and after frist day remembered my preferanes. The only thing that wuld have made our stay 5 star would have been a pool and hot tub. The bar and social areas were well used by all.

Had to take my son for orientation at Rhodes College this summer and we decided to stay here at this location on the University of Memphis. This was a great location; easy to get to; right off of Poplar where there is a lot of shops and restaurants. It is less than a 10 minutes drive to Rhodes. We stayed... More

FYI: The Holiday Inn University of Memphis was the location of our 2014 TN Statewide Payroll Conference of the American Payroll Association. We received wonderful reviews from our attendees about the facilities, the staff, the food and the relaxed atmosphere. This is a GREAT place for any conference.

I'm working on my doctorate at UTHSC & have stayed here twice while in town, as a single female traveling to Memphis alone feeling safe is a requirement of where I stay.

I stayed at this hotel for a football game. The hotel serves as an internship for students at the university, which is located right across the street. The hotel shuttle was very reliable and took me everywhere I needed to go. The rooms were typical of a Holiday Inn. I would stay here again.

Staff is very nice and accommodating . The rooms seem clean, but very average. Great in town location. Kind of expensive for what you get. But overall a decent overnight stay. They could use a little freshening up.

This Holiday Inn is a very solid hotel option for families especially if you are planning to visit the University of Memphis. The rooms are smaller sized suites (probably around 600 sq. feet) that include a pull-out couch, fridge, microwave and sink. The rooms are clean if not a bit on the dated side (furniture appears to have come from... More

Nice hotel, very relaxing with friendly staff. No special extras, and it reflected in the price. The location is specific, downtown is quite in a distance, but if you came to the University of Memphis or some other educational facilities in that area, the hotel is right within campus. The price/quality ratio is one of the best I ever seen.... More

Tried this hotel to see how it would be to stay someone other than downtown Memphis and it turned out good. Price was reasonable and room was very good. Breakfast Buffett was a let down though. Will stay again.
