Great City & Location

The hotel is within walking distance of many local attractions like Beale Street and the Peabody Hotel to see the ducks. The room was spacious and clean. It wasn't fancy, but was a good value for a one night stay. The staff was nice and provided additional towels upon request. Would recommend.

Watch the parking!

I wasn't aware there was a parking fee at the hotel garage before hand. When we parked our car at 12:30AM the second floor parking spaces were plenty. We parked in a space that left a lot or room on each side of our car, however, the next morning we had 3 dings on the passenger side. The space next to us was now empty. Being a rental car we paid $250.00 to get the dings out at a car service.

It was ok....

The hotel was really run down. It needs a lot of upgrades. It smelled kind of musty and the carpet in our room was damp, I would like to think it was because they just had it cleaned but from the shape of the hotel it may have been from a room flood. The only great thing about this hotel was the location. It's right downtown and walking distance from Beale St.

Skeptic at 1st-Lone 21 year old

I was skeptic at first because of all the bad reviews. I figured I would check-out anyway because I'm 21, on a budget, and really only needed a place to store my bags/sleep. The place is a little old and the elevator a little creepy. But the shower was hot and the sheets were clean. If you want a 4 star hotel, this is not your place, but if you live simply. It will do. Plus the breakfast was great.

good location

good location for the price. short walk to Beale Street, all of downtown. Nothing to look at, but the room was clean and comfortable. Felt safe. Great if in town for just an overnight. Would stay again.

Great location!

Although the lobby/front desk air-conditioning was out, this was a great place to stay for the location and the free continental breakfast… the room was rather large and roomy as well. Not every hotel can be new and shiny... And this hotel has earned its age. However, we would definitely stay again!

Traveling home

When I checked into the hotel the guy at the front desk sent me to a room with people ready in it. I returned to the front desk and was given a key to another room and when I got to that room it was being remodeled. Third try is a charm right? The third room I was sent to was ok. It seemed a little rundown and not super clean. Also you have to pay $10 to park on top of having to pay for the room...which I was refunded for my room problems. The beds and location ok. Oh and one other thing...if you park on the 6th floor of the parking deck you have to push the down elevator button to get it to come to your floor (I stayed on the 9th floor).
