We had a difficult time finding lodging in Memphis due to the BBQ festival, so ended up staying here on a recent Thursday evening. This place is a MOTEL. The rooms open right to the parking lot and it's fairly busy and noisy on the road in front during the day. The entire place is rundown and in need of repair and some TLC. The room and the entire motel was beat up, dingy, and made us both feel unhappy. It wasn't really dirty, but the bedspread in our room had multiple stains on it (YUCK), and there was plenty of dusty scummy stuff wherever the sweeper couldn't easily reach (between nightstand and bed where the light shone - another yuck. The bed was comfy, though, and the room quite at night, so that was a big plus. Luckily we showered that morning, because we couldn't get any hot water out of the faucet. Just barely warm. The breakfast food was poorly tended to. We arrived before 8am and there were no napkins, no cleaned tables, two little sausage links in one of the heating trays, and the coffee was almost gone. The attendant didn't show for a full 15 minutes, at which time she sashayed out with a small bowl of sausages, ignored the napkins and coffee and promptly returned to her safe hiding place behind the front desk. The front desk people touted the fact that the trolley stop is close to their location, but the trolley stops running at 6pm thru the week, so we opted to take a taxi. The fee was $15 each direction to Beale (which added $30 plus to tip to our fairly cheap room fare). My big beef is the folks at the front desk knew we wanted to go to Beale and were upset about missing the 6pm trolley (we arrived close to 6). They had a shuttle service picking up other guests for $3 fee, but didn't tell us. Just gave us the taxi phone number. We also paid about $80 per night, before taxes, but add close to $40 for taxi fare, it was no bargain. I strongly discourage anyone to stay here.
