No frills downtown motel

Good location and cheap. These are the only positives. Otherwise the epitome of a flea pit motel.

Love Memphis

We had a wonderful trip, the hotel was very close and conveniently located. The outside was very nice and the price was awesome! Our only compliant was that the room was not cleaned sufficiently, the bed was made but the housekeeper never put clean sheets on the bed and the mattress pad was horribly stained, so we called the front desk and asked for sheets, I told her that I would make the bed and she said no she would do it. She was very rude and snotty to us while she was in our room as if we were inconveniencing her and it was very uncomfortable.

Cheap

Only stayed because it was very cheap and close to Beale Street. Room was very small, but the price and location were good for their purpose.

Location. location, . . .

The location and value more than make up for what the motel might lack in aesthetics. Less than a five-minute walk to Beale Street and environs as well as city transport to Civil Rights Museum. Nothing terribly fancy about room, but comfortable, good AC, quiet, nice shower and bathroom amenities. I would definitely stay again.

Location, location, location!

The real estate mantra wholeheartedly applies to this motel. It was reasonably priced, worn but clean. But the best part was the free parking and that one could walk to most highlighted venues. We stayed here two nights and would return.

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

The Arcade Restaurant is an old-fashioned diner where Elvis used to eat. You can order a fried peanut butter and banana sandwich. It is a few steps from where you take the Segway tour.

Great value Great location

Have got nothing but good comments about this hotel. The location is sensational less than 100 yards from the Peabody and directly opposite the baseball ground (which was fun). The room was very clean and the shower excellent - what more do you want? Also Neil on reception was a great help. Highly recommended value for money hotel.

One night at Vista Inn

I thought overall my stay at Vista was nice. Located an easy walk to Bealle Street, staff was nice. Only complaints I have are to few TV channels and to few towels for double occupancy.

Great people, location

A tired motel in an unusual setting (across from Autozone Park, about a block from the Doubletree and Peabody--with an abandoned warehouse and a vacant lot in between), it nevertheless had unfailingly nice people and a really convenient location. Downtown trolley is several blocks away on Union Street at Main. No drugstores or convenience stores for several blocks, which I found inconvenient since I depend on same when traveling, but there was a 24-hour restaurant chain a block away. Room was quite small, and the TV didn't work very well, but I enjoyed my stay anyway.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Memphis downtown trolley ($1/ride, or $3.50/day pass) is a fun way to explore downtown and to get to some of the attractions too.

Great Location and Value

Great stay! Not an upscale hotel but they seem to try very hard on updating and cleaning the rooms. Great location - we could walk to almost everything we wanted to do and they have free parking.
