“Great place to stay for comfort and location....unique.”
Reviewed August 1, 2004

The Talbot Heirs is a great place to stay for comfort and location. Very small and unique. No check in or check out hassles or long wait at the lobby desk...easy check in and check out. Although small, the staff was great. We actually had two other couples with us and all had a nice large suite with a kitchen. The rooms are large enough to have a few couples meet and visit in the living room of the suite before heading out to Beale Street. Everything we wanted to do, while in Memphis, was within walking distance of the Talbot Heirs Guesthouse. I would recommend Talbot Heirs for a great convenient and very comfortable place to stay...especially if you tried of the conventional hotel stay and looking for something fun!

I thought this was a great little place. Only 8 suites, and tucked away on South Second St, (a few doors away from Automatic Slim's) very friendly and helpful staff, rooms with character, freezer full of ice-cream when we arrived! Five minute walk to Beale - it's what I imagined staying in Memphis would be like.

Doesn't live up to its marketing image of a high class hostelry for the cognoscenti and the in-crowd. Rooms are high priced for chipped bathroom fixtures, cold cereal breakfast, and a large "welcome" sign in the room that states "Be nice or leave." I suggest the latter, even though ice cream in the freezer is a nice touch. Stay at the Peabody across the street and say high to Bernard Lansky.

Talbot Heirs is conveniently located downtown, and the people are nice, but the hotel itself is nothing more than an old studio apartment building turned hotel (sort-of). Secretly, I got the impression that some people still live in the hotel rooms..
