My title tells it all. Looking for a cheap place to stay for one night I ended up here. I had to leave very early in the morning to catch an Amtrak-train and I was hoping to get a few hours of sleep but that didn't work out. In the office I was 'helped' by the most unfriendly woman I've... More

This was no luxury stay but we got what we needed which was a good nights sleep. The room was clean and the motel was a little noisy at night but after 14 hours of driving, we didn't really mind. In all, it was a value motel that gave you what you paid for. We would consider staying here again.

Booked this trip through Expedia and couldn't even stay in the room for 5 minutes. Boarded up windows, dark parking lot, and real live actual cockroaches in the bed. Have never seen a worse hotel including traveling abroad. Stay away. Expedia should be ashamed to even have this hotel on their list of offerings.

I agree with the other reviews that this place is downright scary! We only needed a room for one night during our drive from Chicago to New Orleans and found this hotel for cheap but after seeing the room I would rather sleep in my car. From the bulletproof glass at the front desk to the unusual smell in the... More

All I wanted was a clean room! This is by far the worst hotel I have ever stayed. We stopped at midnight on our way to New Orleans. In the first room they gave us there was a big mirror that was completely broken and shards laying around. I found chicken bones on the shelf, used gloves on the counters.... More

The rooms are cheap, but its not worth staying at the hotel. I live here in Memphis and needed a place to stay while our home was being remodeled. To begin, the staff was very unprofessional. I should have left when I entered the lobby. Bullet proof glass. The lobby was dirty with a strange odor. I kept thinking about... More

Although it is a cheap option for visiting one of the most excellent places on earth, Graceland, please avoid this place. We arrived at the hotel, $172.00 for 4 nights was a great deal! Until, the woman (behind the glass) told us to check our room out before we checked in. So, we drove around back to find our room.... More

I checked in and keyed into my room fine. I'm aware a $60 hotel room isn't going to be excellent, but what I got was beyond awful. The room had one light fixture, in the far corner, leaving the entire room dimly lit which I can live with. I walked into the bathroom and noticed a huge hole in the... More

This was honestly the worst, most unsafe place I have ever stayed. The hotel staff was behind protective glass and the front desk employee told us the reason was the previous employee had been shot working there. The parking lot was poorly lit and we had to walk down an unsafe feeling alley to get to our room. When we... More

If you're planning to go to Graceland ... or even a day trip to Memphis ... this is a cheap and convenient place to stay. My room was clean, and had a HUGE King-size bed that was very comfortable. I was leery after having read the other review on TripAdvisor, but I didn't arrive until 1:00 a.m. and didn't feel... More

“Don't book.”
  • No way to get the shower to turn on. Simply had a bathtub that was unusable.
  • Dirty towel (that's not the shadow)
  • I took the dirty towels and plugged up the wall.
  • The roach that was dead when I walked in.
  • The fly camped out on a towel. There were 3 flies more I would later find.
