“Great UM location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

I stayed 3 nights at this hotel while attending an event on the University of Memphis campus. The location is ideal, as it is right across the street from the campus. I don't stay in many Holiday Inns, but this one seems quite nice compared to the norm. A nice lobby area, and I believe all the rooms are a very spacious, suite configuration.

Room Tip: All locations in the building seem pretty much equal.

We stayed 3 nights in a suite over President's Day weekend. The hotel was pleasantly quiet and uncrowded. The staff upon check in was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable. Small refrigerator, microwave and sink as expected. 2 flat screen TVs were a nice bonus.
The hotel was conveniently located for us, not sure about for the rest of the city. We ate breakfast in the restaurant one morning and it was a very good experience. Lots of offerings from the buffet or you can order from a menu.
I found the workout facilities to be lacking. Elliptical was broken, water tank empty and no ventilation. However, you can workout in a full gym at the University of Memphis for $5 and they will shuttle you there.
We will definitely stay here again when we return to visit family.

The Holiday Inn, University of Memphis, is located in a nice, safe part of the city. Our suite was clean and comfortable. The restaurant food was delicious. The hotel staff was especially courteous and helpful. I will definitely stay at this hotel again if I make it back to Memphis.

My wife and I stayed in this property over the weekend. The long and short of this review is simple - at our every turn the staff was there and did good work. The property is well maintained. The room well appointed with quality furnishings. The housekeeper kept our room beautifully and we never noticed her. The front desk staff drove us around Memphis to restaurants and came back and picked us up.

Anyone would consider our stay excellent. Thank you staff and management of this really nice property.

Room Tip: I have stayed here twice and all the rooms are well located to the stairs and/or elevator. Vending...

We stayed one night in a king suite because we had a family function in town. The neighborhood felt safe and the location is convenient. I was very pleased by the size of the room as we have two young children who need room to roam. However, I was disappointed by the cleanliness of the room. Due to the appearance of the lobby and the furnishings in the room I expected a higher quality. The room we stayed in was in desperate need of a thorough cleaning. There were stains on the carpet, the tub seemed dirty, and there were cobwebs everywhere. Perhaps we just got a bad room because I was pleased with everything else. We didn't eat in the restaurant but we did enjoy the small museum on the second floor. We would probably stay here again and keep our fingers crossed for a better room.

Thank you for taking time to review our hotel. I am pleased that you found the hotel to be quiet and safe, the location to be convenient and the room to be spacious for the kids to enjoy. I am also glad you enjoyed the museum that honors the founder of Holiday Inn's. I am disappointed that the rooms had some cleanliness issues. I really wish you had let us know so we could have taken care of this while you were here. I can assure you it would have been taken care of immediatly. I would appreciate it if you would provide me with the room number so I can personally inspect and resolve any issues. You can provide me this information by e mailing me at dcowgill@memphis.edu.

We really appreciate you staying with us and hope you will stay with us again in the future.

This is no ordinary Holiday Inn. It's part of the University's Hospitality program. I was traveling alone and so appreciated the fact the young man at the front desk didn't announce my room number. He was very discrete in directing me to my room. The room was perfectly appointed for business travel. The real surprise came with the excellent cuisine offered in the restaurant I had the seafood gumbo and it was as good as you would find in New Orleans. The prices in the restaurant were reasonable but the room rate seemed a bit high compared to other hotels in Memphis. That being said, if I have business at the University again, I won't hesitate to stay here.

The hotel is on the edge of campus, in a quiet, mostly residential neighborhood. My husband and I spent a very pleasant evening here for a visit to our daughter, who lives nearby. We would recommend the restaurant highly---good food, fresh salad bar, and wonderfully courteous service. Our suite was exactly as pictured---very comfortable, providing the perfect place for our family evening afterward. Very attractive as a place to hold a conference center, and friendly staff all around. Interesting museum on the second level---story of the "founding father" of the Holiday Inn.

Room Tip: We appreciated being just steps away from the restaurant, on the first level.
