“Noisy, rough part of town”
Reviewed September 13, 2013 via mobile

Wouldn't stay again. Thin walls and lots of street noise. Pimps and hookers in the lobby. Rowdies inside the GATED parking lot. Really not a safe feeling place. The current reviews are much too kind. The staff is friendly and nice. Rooms could be cleaned better, so could the lobby and hallways. But hey I guess it kind of keeps with the theme of Memphis? Would look at maybe staying a little farther south I Mississippi next time.

Stayed September 2013, traveled with family

My children and I arrived at 11:45p to check in with our family pets and they refused us because we had 3 cats (in kennels) and a small boston terrier mix puppy (again, in a pet carrier). We were traveling from Kansas to our new home in Florida and had been on the road for 8.5 hours and had another 13 hours to go. Their company policy is a 2 pet maximum, which is NOT stated on their website ANYWHERE. When I pleaded with him, he apologized and sent me on my way. In hindsight, I should have just booked a second room, but I was exhausted and just started bawling instead. We ended up staying at the Country Inn next door, which also had a 2 pet max, but graciously bent the rules when they saw the position I was in. I understand having a max on animals, but they should have stated their rules on their website. I am a responsible pet owner and had my travels mapped out with two nights staying at La Quinta Inns along the way. I had to drive straight through - it was absolutely miserable!

Due to our late Memphis flight arrival my wife and I reluctantly decided to book a one night stop-over at the La Quinta Hotel on Millbranch Road Memphis. We arrived at about 10pm; we were tired having travelled that day from Manchester, England. The receptionist at check-in was very welcoming; she quickly checked us in, gave us all the necessary information about the Hotel and local restaurants & the all important key pad access number to the secure gated car park.
(The hotel is situated 10mins drive from Graceland)
Our room on the sixth floor was spacious & well maintained being equipped with TV, refrigerator, micro wave, coffee maker & A/c also with good in room free wifi connection.
Our main concern when booking this hotel was its close proximity to the airport “Aircraft noise” this proved to be no problem.
The hotel is on the edge of an industrial area, this also was not a problem due to the room being double glazed.
The following morning we went down for our complimentary breakfast, all self service, cereals, toast, coffee, fruit juice, scrambled egg & Patties and other items too many to mention, all in all a very good breakfast choice.
We would have no problem recommending this hotel to others. We were so impressed that we stayed a second night.
One word of warning check with reception before using the Kettle restaurant next to the hotel, we will say no more. I have placed a separate review on Tripadvisor.

We stayed at this La Quinta hotel for three nights. The hotel staff were all very nice and friendly the rooms were very nice and clean. The hotel is in more of an industrial area but would recommend people to stay here.

We stayed at this La Quinta hotel in Memphis for two nights as it was close to the airport and also to Graceland’s. We were a little apprehensive about booking in, after reading a "Tripadvisor" report suggesting that there were Pimps and Hookers frequenting the hotel lobby during the evenings, however, we have to report that during our two night stay we saw no sign of either Pimps or Hookers, and we found the hotel to be clean, tidy, respectable and excellent value. Although it is not in the best part of town, I would not hesitate to stop there again.
The only thing that badly let this hotel down was the lady clerk who booked us in on our arrival. Her name was KAREN. We are seniors visiting from the UK, and when we book into a USA motel, we always ask for suggestions as to where we should eat and where we should visit. We also need to know if the area we are staying in is safe to be wandering around in the evening.
Whilst KAREN booked us into the hotel I had a few questions to ask, however, she had no time to discuss any of our queries, even to the point of being very rude and disrespectful to us. She also argued with us regarding the fact that we are 65+ years of age and if we were entitled to a $3 seniors reduction in the room cost. There were no other visitors waiting to be booked in at this time. The choice of receptionists at this hotel needs to be addressed, and a few lessons in good customer service and good customer relations procedure needs attention.
This unfortunate incident will not prevent me from giving this hotel the good report it deserves, but please, have respect for senior visitors from countries other than from the USA.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the opposite side of the hotel from the Quarry which lies behind the hotel
