“Full Service hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

We were traveling through Memphis and decided to make a late night stop. We selected Holiday Inn since it appeared to be good hotel in area. It is one of older Holiday Inns that has more features than what you get at new express hotels. It certainly had more character than the newer ones. Free breakfast was nice but not any more than you would expect for the free breakfast you get any many hotels. Rooms were nice and clean but a little older in style.

We did experience unfortunate incident since during night our car was broken into with window being broken and a few items being stolen out of car. The parking lot was well lit and don't know that the crime was indicative of this hotel. I have been told since we left hotel that the overall West Memphis area has a crime problem. The hotel did cover our room charge for our trouble. I would conclude you need to be very careful with leaving anything in vehicle in this area.

The room was good. Rate was very good. Staff at front desk was super friendly. I thought getting to the location was difficult because of the way WM did the service roads (one way streets). But that's not HI's fault, just be forewarned. Overall I satisfied with the place. Oh, and they did give me a free drink ticket. Thanks!

Check in was easy and the rooms were clean and up to date.

Skip the onsite resturaunt. The prices vs the quality are not worth it. The wait staff are actually Holiday Inn staff and do not seem interested in the resturaunt. My free drink coupon could not be used for a premium well drink even though I was willing to pay for the difference.

Yes, it's a few years old and it's not in a scenic part of town, but the staff clearly does everything they can to maximize what they've got. Friendly front desk, clean rooms, comfy beds, and a good breakfast. It was packed and the bar was hopping when we were there but our room was completely quiet. My kids were bummed that the pool didn't open until 10 a.m. bit maybe it's close to rooms and they were just being courteous. Overall, I'd certainly stay there again if I needed a place to stay right off the highway.

This hotel needs an update, but was adequate. That was until the people from the club came through yelling and talking so loud that at first you could not relax or watch TV and next you couldn't sleep. Two phone calls to the front desk did nothing.
The room was comfortable enough and for a fast stop the location next to the highway was good.
The staff was pretty good, but checkout took forever.

Room Tip: Get away from the club if you have to stay here.

Mind you, we had just come from the slummy Super 8 in downtown Memphis, but either way this was a lovely hotel with friendly staff! The room was clean, the bed and pillows were comfortable, the bathroom was fine. It wasn't a fancy shmancy hotel, but it did the trick and was a Godsend considering we had just checked in and out of the Super 8 in an hour because no one should even be exposed to such grime.
