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.

We arrived quite hopeful based on prior reviews. I'm a stickler for clean and saw many of the prior reviews mentioned cleanliness of this hotel. Either we stayed in different rooms, they were biased in their opinions (employees or otherwise compensated), or they have much different standards. The room was not clean. The floors appeared to be mopped with either... More

this hotel was just ok. It was economical. The room was small and was right across the street from a helipad. The hotels hallway lights shined through the top of the curtain which kept us up most of the night and the bed was not very comfortable. I wasn't looking for luxury but just a good night's sleep, but we... More

When we arrived we couldn't check in until 1:30pm. The front desk clerk, cory was very nice. When we got in our room (187) it looked nice but at the bottom of the wall next to the bed close to the restroom it was broken and had a hole. We didnt get enough towels. I couldn't have stayed here for... More

We enjoyed our stay here. I would have given it more stars but we had a few issues. The room was modern and nicely decorated but the carpet needed cleaning. It made the bottoms of our feet black ! And one day they never cleaned the room even though we were out all day. The included breakfast was great and... More

This is an old LaQuinta in the old medical corridor between downtown and midtown. Not a place to stroll around but if you want to find a budget hotel with free parking that is fairly near downtown, the zoo, civil rights museum etc - this is a pretty good place. There were a few problems. Tv was new but the... More

When we first checked in after driving all night the night desk clerk was rude. The day clerk was not only pleasant, but he was very helpful and suggested place to see. The room was poor, the cover on the bed was dirty and stained. The walls appeared to have mold and/or mildew. The walls were dirty with food and... More

We were the first guest in our room since they changed the beds and furniture. Beds were super comfortable and the lamps had outlets were you could actually reach things. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a clean cheap hotel.
