I do not get why there were some negative reviews. We are talking about a hotel called the "Heartbreak Hotel" across the street from Graceland, not the Four Seasons in Nevis! Of course it was going to be a bit cheesy - I would have been disappointed if it wasn't.
I decided to ignore the bad reviews and book the hotel for two nights on our trip down to Memphis. I was pleasantly surprised both walking into the lobby and walking into my room. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. The room was quite large, clean and had a little kitchenette which was convenient. The "Jungle Room" bar did not live up to its name and don't count on a decent breakfast in the morning - I was not impressed by that.
But what was great, was being around all of the die hard fans and enthusiastic travelers and being able to walk to the Elvis attractions and souvenier shops... Please note, this hotel and Graceland are not in a great neighborhood and I did not really feel comfortable driving around at night. It is also not near downtown and Beale Street which was a bummer since my husband and I were anxious to spend some time listening to the blues and checking out the bars... Beale street did not meet my expectations either but it was fun. It was much more flashy and Disneyworld like than expected.
Overall, the hotel was a high point!
