I stayed here during Univ Memphis homecoming. What a delightful staff! Check in was very courteous. The restaurant staff went above and beyond with making me a homemade pizza and the bartender at the lounge was delightful and offered excellent service while I waited on my dinner. The rooms were clean,roomy and comfortable beds. Wifi was excellent.

We stayed one night at this hotel and had a comfortable nights rest. Negative - Overall the hotel felt old and in need of upkeep. Wallpaper in the bathroom was peeling off and bathroom tub was stained and fixtures loose. Bathroom and common areas could have been cleaner. Positive - Beds were comfortable. First floor room just off lobby was... More

I was visiting Memphis for a short trip to interview at the nearby University of Memphis, and this hotel was so hospitable and accommodating. It is an absolutely beautiful hotel, and the entire staff was very pleasant and made my short stay quite memorable!

Have stayed here multiple times and it is always clean, friendly and has a great breakfast buffet. Front staff is always helpful. Restuarant staff is prompt and attentive. Convenient and in a very nice neighborhood. Would recommend this as a great place to stay!

Was attending a competition at the University of Memphis and decided to stay close. Almost missed the hotel as it blends right in with the landscape and there was roadwork being done in front. We arrived very late, but the desk was waiting for us. The room was simple but clean. Loved the suite as there were four of us.... More

Had a great stay here while attending a conference at the University of Memphis. The hotel is much more upmarket than I'd expect for a a Holiday Inn, and the staff are amazingly helpful. I managed to leave my purse on their airport shuttle, and they managed to return it to me so efficiently and quickly. They really go the... More

My wife and I always stay here when visiting the grandchildren. There appear to have been some improvements such as fresh paint since we visited last. The staff is great. Each room is a suite, so there is plenty of room. This hotel is in a safe location and is quiet, which is important to us.

We had a two room suite which was beautiful. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who needs to stay in Memphis close to town but not in town. The buffet here was great also you have a large selection of food for relatively good price including fresh waffles, omelettes, and any style of eggs.

Perhaps it is because it has a museum of Holiday Inn founder Kemmons Wilson on the second floor looming above the huge lobby, but this place comes off like a flagship of the iconic Holiday Inn chain. For the record, the museum is actually worth investing a few minutes even if you have never heard of Wilson. My suite on... More

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.
