Positive Reviews

Handy location for downtown Memphis attractions

Sightseers loved being within moderate walking distance of downtown Memphis with its many attractions showcasing the city's links to blues and rock and roll music. It also appealed that there were bus stops, convenience stores and filling stations close to this motel. Moreover, there were plenty of dining options to tempt guests in the vicinity. Drivers were glad there was free parking. The proximity of highway I-69 reportedly made it simple to access healthcare facilities, golf courses, local attractions, museums and the airport.

Competitively-priced rooms had the basics

Many visitors approved of the competitive room rates for the area and felt they got reasonable bang for their buck. The reportedly unpretentious rooms offered the essentials for budget travellers and often proved to be more than satisfactorily clean, tidy and comfortable for a shorter stay.

Customer service won praise

Reviewers frequently sang the praises of the customer service, adding that they dealt with pleasant, professional and efficient members of staff. Those travelling with their four-legged friends liked the pet-friendly policy.

Negative Reviews

Cleanliness and maintenance could have been better

Several reviewers claimed their rooms had seen better days and would have been improved by updating to address maintenance issues like cigarette burns, worn carpets, dated decor, tired-looking mattresses, aging furniture and old TVs with small screens. Cleanliness grumbles were also mentioned like inconsistent housekeeping standards and bedding and bathrooms that could have done with a deeper clean.

Unpleasant smells reported

Although many guests had a decent stay, some critics were bothered by unpleasant smells in certain rooms. These included musty odours and stale smoky smells.

Unpopular charges for Wi-Fi

The policy of charging guests an extra fee to use the Wi-Fi network disappointed guests, many of whom felt it ought to have been offered as a freebie.
