I had a solid trip to Memphis, Tenn. I had only went down for a day to watch the Civil Rights game. Thanks to Trip Advisor.com I was able to book a great hotel without any problems.
The Sleep Inn was a very nice hotel. My problem was that I misread the check in time. The check in time is 3 pm not 12 pm- I had it reversed. So I almost had my whole day messed up. Thankfully the hotel workers were able to get me a room sooner.
Unfortunatley the key to my room did not work though. I had to go tto the front desk three times before they gave me a different key. Finally the key worked and I was able to get on my way.
I did not have to stay in my room for very long. I was out and about in Memphis for most of the day. If you are ever in Memphis you must check out the Blue Plate Cafe (yummy down south breakfast). I also had BBQ ribs at Pig resturant on Beal Street. It was good ribs but I have a feeling there was probably better elsewhere.
I missed out on Leonards BBQ Buffet which is right by the hotel. Unfortunatley they are closed on Saturday. So for those who are thinking of trying it on a Saturday think again.
The area of Memphis where Autozone Park and Beal Street is cool. The general area of Memphis definetly needs some more businesses or something to help the economy. I would think a place known for good music and food would have more places in the area.
One interesting place I will check out next time is the fire fighters exhibit which isn't too far away from the hotel. You must definetly visit the Civil Rights Museum if you are ever in the area. It is actually attached to the Lorraine Motel which is where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assasinated. It is really a touching place to visit.
The Sleep Inn at the end of the day was a really comftorable place to stay and I would have no problems with staying there again. The Trolly to see the different parts of the city was right outside your door which was awesome. Everything was also within walking distance which was perfect for a walker like me.
The only thing was at the end of my stay the checkout lady was having a hard time with the printer. She must have had a piece of paper jam somwhere inside the printer. I helped her as best as I can to get the paper jam out of the printer. She was a tad impatient with people checking out though. Which I could, but could not understand.
Overall I was really happy with my stay. I would def. stay in the Sleep Inn again-it was a great place to stay for the price that I paid!!
