Neighborhood was iffy for safety/security so desk clerk advised us to order food in. The hotel is OLD, but clean, but definitely not to the level of accommodations or decor of the normal Best Western Plus. We specifically chose this hotel for this reason, on our route. What a disappointment. Only the actual bed was really nice.

I stayed at this motel June 30, July 1. At first, I thought it was OK, except the peeling paint on the bathroom ceiling (no biggie). But during a power failure on my first night there, the emergency lights in the halls and stairways failed to come on. Luckily, I had a flashlight and the power outage only lasted an... More

My wife and I stayed at the hotel overnight while visiting friends in Memphis. I read reviews of the hotel and since it was close to where we were going I decided to make the reservation. The hotel is not in a bad part of town just like an industrial part of town. There is a Hospital near the hotel... More

Clean, safe location yet only 2miles from Beale Street, 1 mile from Sun Records. Off street Parking although only fenced but one drive in and out. I would recommend to friends and I will stay here again.

Very clean, close to everything. Bed is very comfortable. Nice lobby. Rooms are big. Linda is great! We made a mess with our cooler in the lobby. She was so sweet about the situation. Give that woman a raise!

Actual hotel itself was nice enough on the inside but the area hotel was situated in didn't feel the safest – but then again it is Memphis. Sun studio is just down the road from the hotel but I wouldn't be walking it even in daylight. The basin and vanity is inside the room not the actual bathroom which is... More

My family and I stayed at this best western for 2 nights (Fri - Sun). Our reservation was correct upon arrival and Linda was even able to accomodate 2 rooms right next to each other. The rooms were clean and big enough for all of our items. The bathroom was clean and the amenities were in order. Family members ate... More
