I only stayed here for a few hours on a layover. It was okay. The credit card processing was down when I arrived, so I had to pay cash. I don't think I'd stay here again, but it was okay for one night.

I was looking for a place to stay in Memphis and remember somebody stayed here and thought it was ok. I pulled into the parking lot, and was approached by a stranger to give him a dollar for some loose cigarettes. I refused him the money and went into the hotel office. The clerk and security guard were having a... More

Motel 6 in Memphis is sitting on a gold mine. It is shameful that the corporate office has not updated the rooms as they have everywhere else we have stayed. The staff is great from top to bottom. The bed is good and the water pressure is great. The tv gets all the channels clearly. But the room is stuck... More

The beds are shorter than most. They price you per person which is annoying to me. Came in late from playing a show. Was woke. Up every ten minutes by a car alarm and/or helicopter flying over the place. Someone in the parking lot started blaring music. All of this is circumstantial, I recognize but I suspect that this is...

Stayed 1 night! It was absolutely horrible. This hotel should be charging by the hour, yeah that kind of hotel. The bath tub, the TV, and bed, all hideous. Management tried to satisfy, not her fault!!

It was what I paid for, no frills, no in room coffee and the icemaker was broken. Very good for a room only stay. Don't expect expect more than you pay for. If you only need a place to sleep for the night, great value

There were people BBQing in front of their rooms, smoking pot and being loud until 4 am. They were riding hooverboards up and down in front of the rooms.

I generally like Motel 6, since I just want a predictable, clean place to sleep while I see the sights elsewhere. This particular Motel 6 was subpar, however. There was a Dorito in the bed. When my son went down to the lobby for morning coffee, he was told it was all gone. Outside the lobby, two people were reminiscing... More

Simple but nice enough. Easy to get to downtown (even by public transportation), a little far from Beale st to walk, but not impossible. They have coffee in the morning, and the ladys that work on front desk are really nice and helpful.
