“Good location -- close to Beale Street”
Reviewed 9 January 2012

Room was clean and the price was ok. It it was really close to Beale Street. The hotel does need some paint and new carpet. You can tell its an older hotel. There was nothing really extraordinary about this hotel.

We arrived without a booking after a long drive and they welcomed us with open arms, so we were very grateful. Parking was no problem, right inside the hotel basically. It's just a bit tired but given the numbers of visitors no wonder it's wearing out. Probably due for a renovation but location and value are excellent. An easy stroll around the corner to Beale St and across the road to look at the ducks at the Peabody. We had a corner room but it was not too noisy on the higher floor.

Thank you for your review of our hotel.

We are centrally located in the heart of downtown Memphis, close to everything. Because of this we do host many visitors each year especially in the spring - fall and our hotel does remain very business. Our housekeeping staff does a great job keeping things clean, but yes, there is lots of traffic.

We are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and hope you visit us again soon.

Best Regards,

The location was wonderful - close to Beale Street and lots of the places we wanted to go. Price was okay. The room needed sprucing up, one of the elevators had a mind of its own and didn't take us to the correct floor.

So myself and my family stayed at this location for five days. On the first night we were there the elevators did not work correctly, and this continued the entire week. They either did not work, only one worked, or all three were working, but stopped on every floor. I should have known the first night, being that they provide ear plugs for you upon arrival. On the second day, we could not get into the parking deck even though they charged us 12.00 a day. Once we got into the deck we could not access our room. That same day we asked for extra towels from the front desk, and never received them. On the third day, we once again needed extra towels because four people were staying in the room, but they only provided towels for three people, we never got them until we went to the front desk ndcomplained. They gave us. A 20.00 dollar off for breakfast coupon which was not good. The Internet quit working after three days, and the thermostat in the room never worked. I have a family member that is the general manager of a holiday inn in Georgia, and I will NEVER pay 120.00 for this crappy place again. Stay at the doubletree across the street.

It is close to Beale Street but not on Beale, which is a good thing. It is right across from the Peabody and the RedBirds Stadium. It is with in walking distance to Beale Street, the River Walk, and Main Street. The room was standard and comfortable. They did provide ear plugs, but we did not need them. The staff was nice when we arrived and when we asked for a late check out they granted it to us. The hotel has a lounge and a restaurant, but breakfast is not included. This was disappointing. They did have room service, but seemed high. I would recommend Cockadoos across the street. Great location and average for the price.
