I have stayed here in years past when my son attended UM. We were gathering for family weekend at his house in midtown but needed a bit more room. Downtown is an option but has its own issues and VRBO midtown turned out to be misrepresented. This is best option without being in east Memphis. Clean, quiet, easy parking, friendly...

This was our first year to be away from home on Thanksgiving Day. We had a wonderful experience which included the spacious king suite, accommodating staff, casual seating areas in the lobby, and a delicious Thanksgiving banquet. The bed was very comfortable and every area I visited was appeared super clean.

My husband & I stayed at the Holiday Inn University of Memphis because our daughter lives nearby and it is very reasonable. The hotel lobby is nice and airy with multiple seating areas. We arrived early and our room was not ready as check out is at noon. However, the nice staff at the front desk offered to keep our...

Great location if you have someone attending the University of Memphis. Had a great time visiting our son. The hotel lobby is great, the rooms could use a little updating. We had one problem with our room the air conditioning unit started to drip from the ceiling at 11pm on our second night so that was annoying. Wait for maintenance...

Was redirected here at a late hour by an Embassy Suites that did not honor my reservation due to "an issue with the room". Not good news at 11 pm on a rainy night and worse when they tell you it is 20 minutes away. The Holiday Inn looks and feels different than most I've been to, and I've been...

The Holiday Inn University of Memphis is both a working hotel and part of the University's hospitality management program. The physical space itself is very impressive, with a huge open-air lobby and four stories of rooms opening onto it. The hotel staff was overall very professional and efficient - not always the case at hotels that are thus affiliated with...

My family of 5 stayed the night before a flight out of Memphis international. The King suite had separate rooms with a living area that included a fold out couch and LED tvs in each room. We stayed on the second floor and our room looked out into the atrium. This was a very quiet hotel for how large it...

Really nice hotel, very clean and very convenient to university. Daughter had rifle match at the Tiger Open and this hotel was across central ave from campus. Great sleep with comfy beds and pillows. Staff was nice and accommodating. Only downside was the breakfast. It was so-so and really should be included in the price. Was told there was a...

My husbands, two kids and I went to our son's college for Family and Friends Weekend. This hotel is located pretty much inside the campus of the university. The rooms were great, the facilities were good, free parking. But the staff was absolute terrible! The server at breakfast was extremely rude. She spilled my coffee, never apologized and never refilled...

We stayed here overnight on our way to Louisiana. The person behind the desk was friendly and informative when checking in. The room was very large, with a TV room that was separate from the bedroom. Beds were comfortable. We ordered room service and got them just before the restaurant closed. Food was good and not too expensive. Enjoyed the...
