I called on July 31st, 2010 to set a reservation for this August 5, 2010 - a one night stay-double bed room. By August 2nd there were charges debited to my checking account via my debit card from Holiday Inn Univ of Memphis. I called and spoke to a lady at the front desk and she said I was charged... More

We have won the top award for Holiday Inn for the past eight years for customer service. We do everything we can to go the extra mile for every guest. Unfortunately, this guest confirmed a reservation on a prepaid reservation. Therefore, she was charged in advance in accordance to the stipulations for this highly discounted rate. The guest called very... More

I stayed at the Holiday Inn University of Memphis during a 3-day job interview in December, 2009. The hotel is clean, friendly, safe, and modern. My room was a suite, and I was told that all rooms in the hotel are suites. My room had two flat screen tvs, a separate sitting area, a kitchenette, comfortable beds, and a clean... More

We stayed Saturday and Sunday nights in May. We had two issues. First, our room was on the third floor and frankly that was probably not a good choice to be housed when a wedding was going on in a nearby ballroom. As you can guess, there was a lot of noise which was distracting. Secondly, when we turned in,... More

Upon arrival, the registration person upgraded my room and I didn't even ask. I am a Priority Club member, but I don't have a lot of account activity. The room was quiet and spotless. In fact, I think you could eat off of most surfaces in the hotel. My sister needed batteries for her camera. The gift shop didn't carry... More

I stayed here over the New Year holiday and specifically for the Liberty Bowl, which was located just down the street. Although it was a bit of a drive to get downtown, about 10-15 minutes, there were enough stores, restaurants, etc. located very close by that it did not feel like we were secluded. The staff at this hotel went... More

The hotel was okay overall; the front desk staff was friendly and helpful. I felt safe in the neighborhood. The location was a little odd, but was not that inconvenient. It was about 7 miles from downtown. The hotel is fenced, with raising gates in front (which were always raised when we came thru). Initially pulling into the hotel, we... More

We checked in on Saturday. Even though is was only one night, we were very impressed with our room. It was clean and spacious. Have a minor problem with our room key but it was addressed quickly. FREE parking only. The hotel is about 10 min from downtown. The hotel was in nice area. We slept great after a night... More

My daughter and I stayed here for three nights. What a wonderful stay! The Staff was super friendly and the room was awesome. We had a small suite and the furnishings were all modern and very comfortable. The only downside is the shower wasn't scrubbed well, however, I have discovered that most hotel/motel showers aren't. I would recommend this Hotel... More

I needed special accommodations. I needed a room cleaned with unscented material. Not only was it not cleaned with unscented material, the lobby smells moldy and mildewy. If you have lung problems (COPD, Asthma, etc.) don't even consider this hotel.

Stayed here for something at the University of Memphis, and I was surprised at the quality of this hotel. The staff was helpful. Room service for breakfast was good. And the room was huge for the price. It is in a sub-par part of town, but all of the University is. Also, the sheets on the bed seemed low-quality. But... More
