Stayed at this hotel on a business trip April 3, 2005. The facility is a converted Country Inn and Suites by Carlson. Nothing spectacular here, just good solid comfort and value.
In the case of our suite, the surroundings were clean, well-appointed, and well-maintained. The indoor pool area is clean and inviting. I personally did not get a chance to sample the continental breakfast, but since everthing else was up the the Fairfield Inn version of Marriott standards, I presume breakfast offerings would be as well.
The location here is worth noting. You're 18 miles east of downtown near a major suburban shopping mall. This means the hotel would normally be better suited to business travelers. For leisure travelers, you're a bit of a hike from such tourist attractions as Beale Street and Graceland. Still manageable, but not exactly "handy". Allow 20-30 minutes during non-rush hour times.
However, a huge plus for business and leisure travellers alike is the proximity to a wide variety of shopping venues and the loads of dining options nearby. The entire area is something of a "restaurant row" with everything from fast food places, family restaurants, and upscale dining. Many familiar chain restaurants are represented, and there's pretty much something for every taste and price range.
All in all, this is a good little hotel in a nice area.
