4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The property was a good value if your destination was Beale St. If traveling with kids You might want skip it. No pool. The room was clean and comfortable. The staff was awesome. No restaurant in immediate vicinity, but they can recommend some great places that will deliver.

The staff was very friendly. Really nice to get internet and breakfast in the rate. Clean, small, intimate. offered additional services like business center, newspaper,and informed staff. I'd definitely stay here again. And convenient to Beale St. I actually walked from there to the hotel when I missed the trolley. Bed super comfortable.

In a good location, less than 2 mile ride to downtown. Trolley is shown in picture in front of hotel but does not run, at least not while we were there. Neighborhood a little creepy and not safe to walk at nite. Didn't see anything very close by to walk to get anything to eat. Hotel is decent and clean.... More

This hotel was one of five on our vacation and lived up to the standards of the others. Staff were really friendly and helpful, the room was comfortable and clean, and breakfast selection was good. We had no problem with the lack of a pool - temperatures in the high 90's made it too dodgy for the sensitive skins of... More

I stayed at this property for the weekend. When I checked in on 5/22; the check in process was seamless. The lady working the front desk was very courteous. Her name was Felicia. She was a true diamond in the rough. I have only good things to say about Felicia. On the way to my room, I could tell that... More

We stayed at this hotel for two nights. The front desk was very friendly and helpful in recommending things to do and places to visit. The location was okay - it's right off the highway and centrally located. However, we didn't like that it wasn't safe to walk around in the area at night. In any case, Beale street was... More

The hotel is in a central area of Memphis. It was close to Graceland in one direction and close to the river attractions in the other direction. The room was adequate and very quiet. Breakfast was free and fine. It had the usual fare including waffles, yogurt, fruit and bakery Items. There is a fitness center but it only has... More

This hotel was fine. Located in the medical district, this hotel was adequate for my business trip. The hotel was clean and neat - just a bit dated. The breakfast was okay as well. The employees were polite and courteous.
