The staff was nice and my smoke-free room was clean and had no odor. However, the room was small and the TV measured all of 13". But the most concerning part is the neighborhood the hotel is located in. The card on the back of the door warns you to lock your door and leave no valuables in the car.... More

Stayed here for 1 night after visiting Gracelands on our road trip, staff where very friendly and helpful and got us a taxi to Beale street, music galore there, only $6, room clean and cool as air con was on for us as it was in the 30's outside, I'd definitely stay again

Stayed one night solo. Got a king room on second floor. It is right in front of a trauma hospital with lots of helicopter noise. There was groups of people late at night hanging around on the sidewalks around the hotel which happened to look like active drug deals. There is a convience store next door which is walkable but...

No hair dryer. No alarm clock. No clock at all. No Bible. No pen. No note pad. No sheets on bed. No extra roll of toilet paper. No coffee maker. $3 charge for wifi PER person. Urine all over the bathroom wall. Like a sprinkler went off. Bathroom shower/tub was horrific. Complained and was moved to a different room. Thankfully... More

We stayed here for two long nights. Not impressed at all with this accommodation. Room smelled, some light fixtures did not work, not enough towels, uncomfortable bed with holes in the top duvet, lack of amenities except for a small bar of soap, no fridge or hairdryer and no breakfast. The air con was also very noisy. We shall not... More

I swear I don't get the people who expect a hotel costing $50/night in the inner city to compare to a Hilton in the suburbs. It's a Motel 6, reasonably clean and quite. No bums rooming around, a McDonnell's across the street and a short drive to Beal Street. Get real people.

Recommended by a taxi driver and we weren't disappointed. Pleasant staff, a clean room and reasonably priced. Quite a walk to Beale Street but seemed to be a safe neighbourhood. Bus into town seemed to be rather hit and miss.

Unlike a lot of other reviews I thought this was a pretty good budget hotel, we had no problems with the area,used local shops and even walked to the river and Beale street from there. I have to agree with one previous comment that our room did smell slightly of cigarette smoke and it was a non smoker, but apart... More
