We have stayed at Plantation Oaks several times over the past 10 years. This was probably our last. This is a decent place to stay, but I have a few concerns. We stayed in room 601 for 2 nights. First I did not like that there was no central heat/AC. Just a loud wall unit. I find wall units very retro and they aren't very dependable for a comfortable room temp. The room decor is dated and worn, the sheets are not a high-quality percale (something that I personally prefer), and the carpet and walls had some damage to them. The room also smelled like liquor. Upon our arrival, the toilet had dried urine stains on the seat from the previous guest. The radio clock time was an hour off (odd). The remote for the TV was missing the cover for the battery compartment so the batteries fell out several times. The TV is also a console (not a flat screen) and most of the programming was in widescreen format which chopped off the edges of the view....TV upgrades would be nice. We requested 2 extra pillows from the front desk but they told us there were none 'clean'. They offered to roll up some towels and put in a pillowcase for us. Um....no. The maid did not clean our room after the first night, so my husband went by the front desk to at least get some clean towels. The desk clerk told him HE would have to bring the dirty towels back, which he did. But I thought that was awful RUDE. First of all, since it is housekeeping's JOB to take care of those things, and second of all because it was insinuating that we were hoarding or stealing towels? IDK. But I thought it was not classy. The continental breakfast was your typical hotel biscuits/cereals, sausage. I just ate the fruit, so I can't say much for the breakfast. As far as noise level, I didn't notice noise from visitors in the hallway, but the room next door had an obnoxiously loud sound when their shower would run. I was abruptly woken at 6 a.m when the neighbor's shower was turned on, and my first thought was that an airplane was landing in the parking lot! Then I realized it was just the neighbor's shower! Overall this is a very mediocre place to stay. It is in a good, safe location if you are visiting the Memphis Motorsports Park (as we were), but there are other options that we will consider next time we visit Millington. I miss the Neighborhood Bistro Restaurant that was conveniently located in the adjacent building. I think it has moved down the street, but that was always a PLUS when we visited Plantation Oaks was getting to eat at a restaurant just in walking distance. Now there is nothing occupying that restaurant space. Our next trip to Millington (for the Super Chevy Show) we may consider staying in Germantown, which is about a 30 minute drive, but it is a very classy area with more hotel, shopping and dining options.
