My wife and daughter, both big time Elvis fans, really wanted to visit Graceland for years. As my daughter is on leave from the Army and about to go to Iraq for a tour duty, I decided to book this hotel on points for the "pilgrimage" to Graceland. As another reviewer has stated, the formidable fence around the entire hotel property invokes a thought that there might be rebellion about to happen. Driving onto the property, I half expected to see guards with UZI's raising the entry gate and checking reservations against your ID. Overall, the staff seemed quite helpful if a bit undertrained. My major problem came the second night of our stay with the 12:30AM check-in of a fellow guest (visiting Sumo wrestling team?) in room above ours. Gotta love the hotel chains that are building new hotels with wood floors instead of concrete. After filling the their Jacuzzi tub for 30 minutes, which sounded exactly like a 747 on final approach, they booted up the water jets and our entire room vibrated until they had completed their pre-tournament water rituals. At 2:30AM, they had finally finished cracking our ceiling plaster and retired for the "morning."
If you are looking for a quiet night in hotel, look elsewhere. There is no way you will get a quiet night here without prescription drugs in your luggage. BTW, if you need a room with a functioning sofa bed, forget it here. Ours had to have been acquired from a Big Lots inventory clearance sale. Bad stains on the cushions and almost inoperable springs made sofa something that will likely outlast the concrete foudation of the hotel. No one will sit on this for more than 5 seconds.
