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.

We have stayed with this hotel on 3 occasions and expect that we will be staying many more with my daughter attending u of m in the fall. Our first stay was a little odd with some last minute changes in room assignment but this past stay in May was great. Love the location but parking can be tedious if... More

This is a great place to stay. I have never seen anything like it. All the rooms face a big atrium with an escalator that runs to the 3rd floor. It is a hospitality school and a museum. We were on the museum floor, and it was really interesting! We also loved the multiple separate areas in the lobby for... More

Whatever the reason you are in Memphis for this location is wonderful and we felt safe and secure. If it's personal or business run for reservations before all the rooms are gone. It's across the street from the University of Memphis so I'm sure it's booked far in advance for events the school has.

This hotel is some distance from downtown and public transport is scarce, so be prepared to travel by taxi to downtown attractions or Graceland. Fares are reasonable between $20-25 respectively. The hotel room was large and facilities adequate but attention to cleanliness of the bathroom was lacking and detracted from the overall satisfaction of our stay. Renovation, particularly of the...
