“Always a good stay.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

My family and I make it a habit to always stay at this hotel. We have come to feel relaxed and at home there. Not only are the staff friendly and helpful, they go out of their way to help make our visit pleasant. I highly recommend anyone to try it for one visit and I'm sure you'll return on your next trip.

I travel for work a lot and I like to save money but I won't stay anywhere. This hotel was very clean, had comfortable beds and had very cheap rates. I have paid much more for worse room. There was truck parking and there were grills outside that you could use. I would recommend this hotel to anybody who works on the road.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2011

We arrived late and they were ready for us, room was immaculate, comfortable, clean, and new - this place appears to be less than a few years old, if that. Nice light Western motif in our particular lodging. First floor hallway a bit squeaky, no such problem in our second floor room however. Desk personnel were friendly and helpful. Only major issue was some very loud domestic arguers (doesn't this seem to be on the rise, everywhere, in this stunted Greek model of an alleged economy?), down a few rooms around midnight, which staff took care of ASAP - those incidents are beyond motel screening control, unfortunately for us peaceable travel types. Did not use indoor pool (after hours); kids used free wifi and it worked fine. Juices and coffee with a few cold and pre-packaged items at small breakfast bar. Location is about an hour northeast of Memphis via US 51, a very easy and rather scenic drive through some growing towns - all of which appeared well-kept, which is not always the case but should be. Overall a solid newer Super 8 and perhaps one that should be used as a management role model for burgeoning hoteliers and those that need some retraining. Will use again if travelling in the area.

Room Tip: Another good rate from Hotels.com for this visit.

GOOD: Reservation went well (reserved through hotels.com) & price was honored. Breakfast was provided. Room was clean. Staff was reservedly friendly. Gave good restaurant referrals for our meals.

BAD: Room smelled like cat urine. I bought some Lysol air freshener & kept spraying. Finally I sprayed under the beds and that seemed to address the source of the smell. The toilet tissue dispenser was seperating from the wall mount. The facility is located right across from a jail or prison of some sort.

Especialy enjoyed the manhunt for the escapees the last night we were there. A county Gov,t complex across the street from the motel. A/c worked wonderfull it was 95 + outside and very cool inside.

We needed to stay in the ripley area for a family funeral. We booked a block of rooms at the last minute with no hassles and no prepay requirements. The owner and front desk staff was extremely helpful. Asking several times if there was anything they could do for me or my family. That's unusual!! The hotel was very clean. The pool was warm and very clean. Pool towels were not readily available but given to us as we asked. We've stayed in another Ripley hotel and it was old and dirty. We'd stay here again.

I went to this motel as the halfway point for a long trip. They don't have a 24 hour front desk, which is ok, but kind of frustrating after a long trip. What was more frustrating is the fact that they lost my reservation! I should be precise: the reservation wasn't lost: I had my confirmation number and they were able to successfully look up my reservation, but they had given my room away, so I had to take a king with a handicapped restroom, which is inconvenient.

The rate was fine, the breakfast was ok, exactly what you'd expect from a Super 8, packaged pastry, cereal, and oatmeal. The room was nice enough for $63 and the wireless internet worked well. But there still isn't any excuse for the reservation issues.
