Stayed here strictly for the price. Location was pretty good...close to Beale and Sun Records. Not much interaction with staff after check in but good breakfast and location was enough for us to bring the kids on the next trip. Checking out, I heard ppl complain about certain things in their room (fridge, microwave, etc.) But ours worked fine. Would... More

Not clean at all. First room he tried to give us was nasty. Toilet, sink, and tub was visibly dirty. The toilet had the blue stuff in there though to make you think they cleaned it. Not. Asked to see another room, and was even more disappointed. This room smelled like mold and mildew. Right before we walked in the... More

A little aged, but clean and had a Sleep number bed. We'd been wondering if we'd like one or not. We checked in late and the only non-smoking room on the main floor was a business suite.The desk clerk put up with my bad mood and after seeing the room, we decided to keep it for two nights. She gave... More

I was in our vehicle reading horrible reviews as my husband was inside getting our room:( Happilly, the reviews did not describe our stay. The room was very clean and the bed was equally comfortable. If the main objective is to have the biggest, fluffiesr towels, etc. I would have wanted a $$$$$ place. That wasn't what I was looking... More

Booked in for two nights using a coupon, very cheap, but room stank. Asked for another room and it was just as bad. The desk clerk even said the smoking will come through the AC, why put us there??? Have stayed at Quality Inns for the last two nights and now I don't believe we will stay with them again.

Checked in on Thursday and stayed the night. Go out to get lunch the next day and we're locked out of our room. The front desk said we were confirmed as a no show the day before when WE STAYED THE NIGHT. I've never had worse front desk service. I called down for towels and toilet paper later that afternoon...

Rooms are old, smelly, lots of noise from the inner yard, average breakfast. Price is good, so if you look for a place to put your head for a night, its fine, not good for a long stay, Walking distance from Sun Studios.

I reserved on line from a website that featured Beale Street Hotels. This hotel is way too far away to count as being close, definitely not walking distance. Must have picked a bad night to choose to be in Memphis. The motel was full of young, loud people much more interested in having a good time than sleeping. A call... More

There were problems with the cooling systems. When checking the filters they were dirty. After switching rooms, the stay was ok.the maid even offered a fan until the room cooled off. She was very nice.

Rooms were updated and remodeled. This hotel was about 10-15 min.driving distance to downtown Memphis/Beale Street. Property was well lighted and had a security patrol on duty. In the medical/university area of Memphis. Not a fancy hotel, but definitely worth the price. Beds and pillows were comfortable. Will return to this property.
