Colonial Inn & Suites
Ranked #95 of 138 Hotels in Memphis
Reviewed 29 November 2012

Me and my wife stayed two nights. The room was nice and clean and the staff and managment were very nice. We would recomend Colonial inn to all of our friends and any travelers going to memphis.The only problem was there is no breakfast but we had a coffee pot in our room. So for the price and good night sleep it is worth the stay

Room Tip: The non smoking rooms are new and fresh a little traffic but worth the stay

Though my fiance and I have stayed here before, this last time was the worst!!! the room we were assigned was very unsatisfactory and nasty to say the least; the floors were so filthy and nasty, the door to the room barely looked closed and was about two to three inches from the floor where bugs and element could come in from under it, there was a chain on the door with no latch to slide it in we had to put a knife in it to feel safe enough to sleep, the lamps by the bedsides didn't work,the outlets were broken so you can't plug in and charge up anything, there were roach/bug legs behind the toilet of the nasty bathroom floor, and hair shavings from a mans beard behind the faucet by the face bowl. Also to make things more uncomfortable and make you feel unsafe, there were guys sitting in the parking lot in a van in the dark as if they were lurking around waiting to rob or assault hotel guests as they arrive to enter their rooms!!! When we complained about it we were spoken to very rudely!! I wish I was able to upload the pictures of the room and its condition here on this site. Then when you complain to the front desk about the uncleanliness, management became very loud and obnoxious. Honestly, the treatment of African-Americans at this hotel is very low quality here and I would suggest that if you can and have the means, research other hotels in the area or go to Southaven, MS and stay at the Laquinta Inn at $42.99 per night, as opposed to this $55.00 per night NIGHTMARE INN!!!!!! Never again in this lifetime or the next!!!!!

The people here show you they want you to return and they try to keep the rooms clean. I have been here several times this year because I travel with my work. They are doing soom upgrades to the property and do there best to keep there rooms clean. The management does everything they can to make your stay away from home as close to being home as they can. The people here are friendly and helpfull.

The room wasn't all that bad but nothing like the pictures showed.The air barely made the room comfortable but if you moved around to much you would be sweating. The person we booked the room with told us they had a swim pool. My husband ask the man twice and he said yes so we booked the room. We got there and guess what NO SWIM POOL. They wouldn't let us go to a different hotel since the guy lied to us. They just want to give us a coupon for 30 on our next visit. Well you can bet that it will NOT be at this motel. Don't like being lied to just to get you to book a room with them. Be truthful you might not have bad reviews.
