When we checked in the lady was very short with me and seemed irritated by my presence. The elevator looked really old but the room itself was pretty nice. The location is quite good and parking was safe and plentiful.

I choose this hotel because it was close to the Memphis Zoo. (Our destination for a panda viewing.) The front desk staff were very helpful with directions to the zoo and to restaurants. The rooms were clean and nicely decorated. Beds were very comfortable but sat high up off of the floor. On the other hand, the commode in the... More

This hotel is located in the heart of downtown Memphis, but is very well situated, and the parking area is protected with iron fencing. The inside of the hotel is well appointed, and the quality of the rooms is high. Our room had a refrigerator, the bed very comfortable, and we wanted for nothing.

This a great hotel for several reasons. Location is great for a medical visit ( our reason for travel to Memphis), close to the tourist areas, safe, clean, comfortable, and friendly staff. Parking is free and directly located in front of the hotel in a secure lot. The breakfast is very good, more like a buffet including a self service... More

It was 98 degrees in Memphis and they were under a heat advisory the day we checked in -about 6:00 p.m. When we got to out room it was so hot we could hardly stand it!! We had a reservation and I would think that it could have been somewhat cool upon our arrival as it had been at the... More

Clean, friendly, very good price for the money. Location not very pleasing, right off main thoroughfare. Decent all included breakfast. Helpful staff. Rooms are updated. This is not 'your mamma's old Best Western.

We checked in late at night and the night desk clerk was very helpful and attentive to getting us checked in. our beds were so comfortable that I would have purchased the mattress and shipped it home if I could! The decor of the rooms were... More

Stayed here three nights while on a Memphis vacation. MUCH smaller hotel than we expected, but good accommodations. The lot is fenced in and we always felt safe and the the parking lot signage was a good reminder that we are in Memphis. When you check in, there is a double set of doors that do not open automatically. Be... More

The hotel was nice, room was clean decorated nicely. Memphis doesn't seem very safe but this hotel had nice tall fencing around the entire parking lot and the only way in and out was past the front doors where you would be seen. Breakfast was pretty good the standard waffles,eggs,biscuits gravy,cereal,pastries.
