“Wonderful stay!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2012

My friend and I stayed at The Quality Inn in Southaven for four days during January 2012 as we had business in Memphis. We originally wanted to stay in a hotel close to the Graceland area but heard that area was very unsafe. We then found The Quality Inn in Southaven which about only a seven minute drive to the Graceland area and before our stay we couldn't find any bad reviews on it. Southaven is a lot nicer and safer then seven minutes down the road in Whitehaven Memphis.

We drove up to find the parking lot very well lit and the lobby to be very spacious and nice for an Inn. Check in went very fast and good, and our guest room was upgraded to a room with a sofa when we originally only booked a room with a king bed. The lady at the front desk was friendly and actually asked us about our trip and the next morning the cleaning lady was also very friendly when we asked her for some directions.

We found our room to be very large and very clean on our arrival. The room was actually larger than other motels I've stayed at. Our guest room was number 225 and it contained the following: one nice wing-backed chair, black medium sized sofa with small wood coffee table, a king bed with a black headboard with very nicer dressings, a large mirror with table, a 32 inch flat screen tv sitting on top a dresser with four deep sized drawers, a hair dryer, coffee pot with the stuff, and a separate shower/toilet area from the sink area. The sink top area was brown marble and had plenty of room for our things like makeup and jewelry as we are women. Our room was a smoking room as we requested and even for a smoking room our room did not smell at all, and smelt very nice and fresh. The shower/toilet area is small and tight on space but the shower curtain is a round one which makes the area have more breathing room. The bathroom was clean from your normal eye glance, but with a closer look I found some dust in the corners but that was fine with us as everything else in the room was very clean. The king bed was very firm but comfortable for us. There were only two things that we personally did not like and the first was the pillows, as the pillows were very small as almost like a half size, but the pillows were comfortable. My second thing I personally did not like was that the AC unit was a nice wall unit but was controlled from a box on the wall. Here are somethings I really liked about the room: electrical outlets in the lamp for phones or iPods, sheets were very soft, and the furniture was a nice sleek black color.

If you are a tough sleeper or someone who is easily awake by noise then The Quality Inn Southave is not for you, as each night we heard airplanes and traffic on the nearby interstate. But the noise at night did not both us at all!

The Quality Inn offered a free Breakfast as a paying guest and we had their breakfast two mornings. For Breakfast they had hard boiled eggs, mini sausage links, country biscuits and gravy, wide selection of fruits, and two types of muffins, and coffee & orange juice for drinks. Our second morning we walked in about 15 minutes after the Breakfast ended at 9am and they still let us eat breakfast, very nice of them.

Over all we had a very wonderful stay at The Quality Inn Southaven and for only $65 a night we felt like queens and we will definitively be back again for our next Memphis trip!!

We typically stay one further exit south on I-55 when stopping in Southaven. This time, we decided to try the Quality Inn since it was about 2/3 the price of our usual hotel (Fairfield Inn), based on a good experience at a Quality Inn in Grenada, MS, and after checking Tripadvisor.

This location had way too much noise for us. The noise at 1 am at this location included planes, loud trucks at a nearby retail strip, and a helping of highway noise. This led to a difficult time falling asleep and an earlier-than-desired morning. We found ourselves driving back to the other exit for better dining choices. But the main thing was the noise.

The Quality Inn is an old-style, park-by-your-door format motel, but the room was updated and the bed quite comfortable (especially nice pillows). The shower and soap was nice. The bath towels didn't appear properly folded, making us wonder if they had been replaced; however, the desk attendant was generous in giving us plenty more and showing concern when we asked.

We're going to resume staying one exit further south off I-55 on our return through Southaven.

We arrived around 11:30 at night just to take a break from driving. I was shocked at how clean the room was. The room seemed a bit larger than your average motel room. Everything thing appeared very clean and in order. The beds were nice and comfortable and they had a nice flat screen TV to watch as well. And for what we paid this was an excellent bargain. The breakfast choices are cereal, pastry, boiled eggs, biscuits/gravy, sausage and bacon. There are probably a few other things but you get the idea. So if I was traveling again and needed a place to sleep for the night I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

I will begin with the good. The hotel is conveniently located. The rooms are nicely kept for the most part and I liked the layout (non-smoking king bed). The older lady who checked me in was very nice and even gave me a room with a whirlpool tub - which I didn't request, but was pleasantly surprised to see. The staff seems attentive and friendly and when we had a noise problem with some people lounging outside our room with loud children a 11:30, they took care of it.

Onto the bad. The rooms, while fairly nicely kept, did have some issues. There were two lights in the bathroom - one above the sink and one above the shower/tub. The one above the shower did not work. We were only staying for a couple of days, so I didn't complain about it because it wasn't a huge inconvenience, but the room was cleaned while we were gone on the first day, so I'm not sure why housekeeping didn't see and report the issue.
The second, and worst thing about the hotel is that I could smell cigarette smoke strongly in the bathroom and eventually the main room with the bed. I don't know if there was a smoking room above or on either side, but it was so bad that both my boyfriend and I were having problems breathing.

I will likely not stay here again. There's a Ramada Limited that is closer to all the shopping and restaurants that I have stayed in that had more comfortable beds and no smoke issues. However, if you are willing to take your chances, it's not a bad hotel.

We stayed here after very very poor service and a terrible experience at the Holiday Inn Express in the same vicinity. They found a room for us when we showed up there at 1:30 AM after leaving the other hotel due to us booking a non-smoking room (health issues) and being given a smoking room which was the worst ever encountered. The most comfortable beds ever! Thanks for being so kind and helpful!

This is a Motel so it's rooms face the outside. Great for people who like to smoke and drag coolers into their rooms. Saw mainly ballteams here. The beds were comfortable and the room was a good size. Nice sized fridge and small microwave is a plus. Nice enough breakfast with lady making waffles but also gravy and biscuits, bacon and sausage for the hot choices. My complaints involved some mold around the tub and the bathroom floor was dirty. Found a child's toy behind the bathroom door so i wondered if it was even cleaned before we got there. The vanity was not very clean either. There was a nasty stained chair in our room in front of the door to the connected room. Our room was on the bottom by the stairs so it was a little noisy with people climbing the stairs. This place would be okay if it were cleaned up a bit. I've definitely stayed in worse.

Room Tip: Ask to be away from the stairs.

Stayed at this hotel on a long weekend trip with 3 girlfriends and we were very pleased. Great value for your $$...clean, roomy, comfy and very nice desk help. Location was right in the middle between Beale Street, Graceland and Tunica, so it was very convenient. . Breakfast was adequate and there's not a lot of extras, but for the price, I would definitety recommend this hotel.
