I stayed here with my girlfriend during her first US trip with me. Since Elvis is such a big slice of Americana, Tupelo had to be one of the places we’d visit. To save money, we decided (well, really it was my idea!) to stay in one of the “motor inns” that can be of hit-or-miss quality. So we happen upon Scottish Inn around 1 am after a long drive from Asheville, NC. It does not look like anything exceptional from the outside, but it turned out to be an decent place for the price. The a/c was cold, the shower was hot (a real highlight), and we parked right outside our room door. The only downside is that the top cover on the bed seemed to be a bit dirty, and the room smelled a bit of smoke. But these were not deal breakers. For the price it is a great value and the area is safe. Elvis would probably have been glad to stay here before he made it big. Keep in mind that my perspective is based partly upon being ok with some of the Spartan room in the remote parts of Ethiopia. :)a
As an aside, if you want to have a real authentic experience, have breakfast at Shockley’s. It is an old school breakfast house that is an excellent alternative to the Waffle House / Denny’s / IHOP places.
