Quick visit to Memphis - thank you very much

Would recommend Wed, Mar 11, 2015
Nice hotel, convenient to trolley line (unfortunately, trolley not currently running), staff was friendly and helpful throughout stay. Location was convenient (Beale St. a short drive away). If you have time, would recommend A&R Barbeque (a bit of a drive from hotel) and Schweinehaus (German restaurant 10 blocks east of hotel on same street).

Simple hotel, out of the way, quiet, but close enough to Beale Street that a taxi ride took maybe 5 minutes.

Noise

Would recommend Tue, Feb 17, 2015
The hotel was great.. Need something done about the noise control.. You can hear every little noise from the door shutting to the toilet flushing . This makes it hard to sleep.

DIRTY ROOM

Would not recommend Tue, Dec 2, 2014
It first glance it looked nice, but my blanket had dried food stuck to it and cigarette burns. The front desk told me they shouldn't even have that blanket, but did not offer me any compensation. There was also a dirty tooth flosser on the sink, junk on the floor, and the bathroom was dirty too. When I asked for a clean blanket (that was all I asked for) I was told they were locked up for the night, and I could only have one off the "stained pile."

Quiet, no frills, nice staff, meh location

Would not recommend Fri, Nov 21, 2014
This is really just a comfortable place to lay your head if you are doing a one-nighter in Memphis. It is in some random quasi industrial area next to an animal hospital. The hotel itself and its rooms were clean. Free Direct TV, which is a plus. Cheap price. Free WIFI. The staff members were all super friendly, very professional and pleasant. The location was the pits. And, there is no way you would be able to tell that by looking online. If you are looking to walk anywhere...forget it. I was picked up one day by Memphis residents and they passed it twice.

Dining

You'll need to drive to eat, play, whatever. The stay at this hotel is not a vacation experience.

business trip

Would recommend Fri, Nov 14, 2014
I had a very pleasant experience! My room was very clean and quiet, breakfast was great (waffles, biscuits, sausage, eggs, oatmeal and etc). Downside: no free weights in the exercise room but the treadmill, stationary bike and elliptical were sufficient (I missed that memo but it was listed on the website so it is really not a downside per say). Very friendly and helpful front desk staff. Fyi: if you need a cab, be sure to call at least 15mins from your expected departure time as cabs can be very slow to pick up. I didnt mind the 2 mile walk but it was too cold for me to attempt it. I enjoyed my stay/visit so much that I decided to stay an extra night. I got a great deal for half the price I would have paid to stay at a doubletree downtown

Sparkling Clean!

Would recommend Wed, Nov 5, 2014
Cleanest bathroom I have ever had with NO stray hairs! Beautiful room with a very Fung Shui feel. The hot breakfast the next day was very tasty. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel is close enough to Beale Street to take a taxi so you can party the night away! And, it is far enough away from Beale Street for a quiet, restful night. I would stay again.

Nightlife hint

Take a taxi to Beale Street. It was so much fun and safer than driving yourself. It cost about $9-12 one way.
