My first time at this hotel I was only here for senior church banquet. Sitting at the table and a bug crawls on the table. It wasn't a roach but it was some kind of insect. Sorry this ruined my entire mood for the banquet I didn't want to touch my food in front of me. I'm sure that this...

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...

I enjoyed my first trip to Memphis and the service at this hotel was warm and helpful. I would suggest they carry laundry detergent for the washer and dryer on the 4th floor across the street however overall the service was great. The hotel is dated and carpet from the 70's but the bed was so comfortable that I was...

Really nice and comfortable hotel that is right by the uni campus. Plenty of car parking spaces and about 20 minutes drive to the heart of Memphis. It was very noticeable that an amount of tension existed in the breakfast room between some members of staff, with 1 waitress being run ragged while others appeared to look on with disinterest....

I have reviewed this hotel before and always gave it & the staff excellent ratings. I have always thought it was overpriced but paid the rate for the location. However on this trip I had a broken foot and got a handicapped accessible room. The bathroom was well equipped but the suite itself was too small to maneuver a wheelchair...

My daughter and I stayed here for a visit to the University of Memphis. The hotel is across the street from the north end of the campus. We arrived well after midnight. Check-in went smoothly. The room was in clean and in good repair as was the hotel. Overall, a pleasant stay with no negatives.

This Holiday Inn met all of my expectations. Our room was a suite with a separate living area that could be closed off from the bedroom. It was very comfortable. Our group was attending a regional conference. The conference room was large and accommodated our group nicely. Breakfast and our banquet meal were both very good.
