We stayed 1 night at this motel and won't come back for sure! The staff was ok so was the room but we felt very unsafe! As soon as we checked in we saw homeless people wandering around walking back and forth by our room. We thought they would be gone by night time. It got worse! We had homeless... More

Now I know it's budget accommodation but the room was shockingly bad. It stank to high heaven of stale cigarette smoke, it was unclean with years of dust around the edges of the carpets, splits in the bathroom linoleum. It really was a pleasure to leave the room to get some clean air. To return after the end of a... More

Checked in and checked out in five minutes. Others had given this 3 stars, so we thought overnight would be okay. No! Bed was never changed from last inhabitant. The pillow cases themselves had brown stains on them and the pillows should have been in the trash. Room was old and smelled. The bedspread looked like something from the dollar... More

We were looking for affordable accommodations in a good location (close to downtown, bars and restaurants) and this is all that we could find. Being a fan of budget accommodations, I do not feel I have unrealistic expectations. I have also stayed in Motel 6 in other cities and understand that they are not typically right in the center of...

My wife and came to Memphis to enjoy Beale Street. This hotel was close and cheap. We went to bed a midnight and by 8am Sunday morning my entire right arm was covered with bed bug bites. This location is unsanitary. I reported to house keeping and all she said was "that's awful". Really!! Four days later I'm still treating... More

We arrived in Memphis late and tired. We did a quick internet search and found this motel. It sounded too god to be true, exceptionally cheap and in a close location to the attractions. We called in and were looked after by a lovely lady -Patsy ? I think. She made us laugh, told us where to go and where... More

This was my 4th stay here and although I've given it 3 stars the location is 41/2 stars and the staff 5 stars. All the staff where super courteous and helpful. On check in Annette was helpful in arranging a cab downtown. And when I found I had no tv remote I called the desk and the manager delivered one... More

We were looking for an inexpensive place on the East side of Memphis and (innocents abroad looking at a map) thought this seemed OK. Our taxi driver, an ex-MPD cop, warned us about going out at night. The area, South Pauline, was run down and poverty-stricken. The reception staff were OK, but when we drove round back to the room,... More
