“If not for Elvis...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

The location is great, near Graceland, airport and downtown. From afar, it does not look pretty; the lobby looks nice though, then nothing more. The restaurant is awful. The only good thing there is the free movies of Elvis performances on the big screen. The room is old, the hallway is dirty, and the overall atmosphere is gloomy. The room is clean. The front desk staff are not friendly at all. Elvis will not be proud.

Stayed here for 1 night to do the Elvis tour & the hotel is in the perfect location. The hotel itself is quite nice if a little dated with all the retro furniture but it was clean with decent sized rooms. My only complaint was the breakfast selection which was very poor. We went down for breakfast & were met with a choice of the usual biscuits & gravy or doughnuts. Very disappointing when you book the hotel as bed & breakfast then find a poor selection in the morning. The hotel is good for location but would not want to stayed for longer than 1 or 2 nights.

I took my mother for a birthday trip. As most reviewers say it is the best place to be able to walk over to the Graceland plaza. We checked in early and our room was ready. We had the VIP package which I felt was worth it at Graceland. The hotel looks a lot older than it is and the rooms need a total renovation. I had to upgrade to the smaller part of the Hollywood suite and it was definitely worth it. If your looking for just a place to stay then this will do. The staff was friendly and helpful, it just amazes me they let Elvis' name be attached to this hotel, but as people say..location is everything.

Room Tip: Pay the extra and upgrade to a suite or at least a half-suite.

Just stayed here for 4 nights. The hotel could do with re decorating but on the whole a great place to stay for any Elvis fan . Our room on the ground floor was clean and comfortable , with 2 large bedrooms and kitchen area and a clean bathroom with plenty of towels. The free shuttle buses to Graceland and downtown Memphis were very handy and the staff were friendly and helpful. If you want the whole "Elvis experience " this is the place to stay . The only minor gripes were that there were never any English teabags in the dining room and it would have been nice to get a cup of tea/coffee in something other then a polystyrene cup! I would definitely stay here again.

I see there are quite a few negative reviews about this place,but were glad to stay here. Not only is it extremely convenient to Graceland and the many other Elvis Exhibitions ( short walking distance ), it was clean, comfy and we "accidentally'" got a great deal due to an error at the reception desk.
Of course if you are NOT an Elvis fan this place and the whole area could drive you insane. Elvis IS Everywhere.
It is kind of fun and quaint, and a bit tacky but in a good way.
My friend and I had a suite which was two good sized bedrooms and a bathroom. Elvis was on the TVs 24/7, and we each had a different photographic portrait on the wall. I was worried about noise because we were close to the restaurant and reception area ,but this was no problem.
The reception staff were not overly friendly, but we have come across far worse in much nicer places.
My only real compliant would be the breakfast -- boring and unappetizing.
But I'd stay here again.
I don't know why other people had such strong problems with the place..maybe they were expecting Elvis himself to appear??

if you are an Elvis fan you will enjoy the lobby and the Elvis memorabilia all around.
the standard rooms are about a 3 star rating- nothing fancy at all but clean.
it was next door to Graceland so that was huge for us as we were on a time crunch.
restaurant was good - enjoyed the mozzarella sticks and pb/banana sandwich an Elvis fave!
staff was very friendly - all prices at gift shops are the same in that immediate area.

Room Tip: try the suites if you want an ultimate fan experience

Yes, it is at the end of Lonely Street and the desk clerk is dressed in black, but this is a fun place to stay if you are a fan of The King and are visiting Graceland which is a two minute walk from the front door (an hourly shuttle is available if needed).

Friendly and helpful staff, clean and comfortable rooms, good and reasonably priced food (served on plastic plates), excellent complimentary breakfast and coffee. With three 24x7 Elvis channels on TV in the bedrooms and large screen concerts in the restaurant during dinner, you might not ever want to leave.

There is a regular free shuttle to downtown Memphis if you can tear yourself away from Graceland long enough to enjoy it.

Free and fast WiFi was useful for keeping in touch with friends and family back home.

Don't be discouraged by the negative reviews posted here by people who expected something else. Sure, it's not the Ritz or the Peabody, but it doesn't claim to be and is priced accordingly.

Room Tip: Higher floor rooms on the east side might just have a view of Graceland.
