Treadmill broken and hasn't been fixed in months. Staff won't do anything about it. Wifi absolutely worthless. Crappy mattress. I only stay here because the company forces us to stay in this hellhole. ...

The Holiday Inn University of Memphis is a straightforward business hotel with a courteous staff. The free shuttle to/from the airport is a plus. There is a spacious lobby with areas for impromptu meetings if needed. The lack of a pool is a minus. Rooms are clean.

This was our first time in Memphis, Tenn. We went because our grandson who plays football for TCU was playing in the Liberty Bowl there. This hotel is close to the University so that was awesome. The hotel also had a bus who carried us to the game and picked us up after the game. That in itself was super....

This is a decent hotel for what you pay. It's not in the greatest part of town, but close enough to decent areas for dining and nightlife. Great staff, as I needed a phone charger, didn't have a rental car and one of the staff members (I wish I could remember his name) drove me to a store down the...

My lovely and I stayed here when she attended a conference across the street on campus. The room was spacious, and the beds were very comfy. Staff was very helpful and friendly. I chose to go running in the area north and east of the hotel, and LOVED the architecture and views of the older homes. One thing I did...

During our stay the front doors were blocked due to some construction issue, so one had to enter from a side hall. Inconvenient but not horrible. Our room was quiet and clean, but the beds were much too soft for our tastes. The dining room was dark and depressing, and our "chef's special" dinner was a mediocre appetizer at best...

I have stayed here in years past when my son attended UM. We were gathering for family weekend at his house in midtown but needed a bit more room. Downtown is an option but has its own issues and VRBO midtown turned out to be misrepresented. This is best option without being in east Memphis. Clean, quiet, easy parking, friendly...

This was our first year to be away from home on Thanksgiving Day. We had a wonderful experience which included the spacious king suite, accommodating staff, casual seating areas in the lobby, and a delicious Thanksgiving banquet. The bed was very comfortable and every area I visited was appeared super clean.

My husband & I stayed at the Holiday Inn University of Memphis because our daughter lives nearby and it is very reasonable. The hotel lobby is nice and airy with multiple seating areas. We arrived early and our room was not ready as check out is at noon. However, the nice staff at the front desk offered to keep our...

Great location if you have someone attending the University of Memphis. Had a great time visiting our son. The hotel lobby is great, the rooms could use a little updating. We had one problem with our room the air conditioning unit started to drip from the ceiling at 11pm on our second night so that was annoying. Wait for maintenance...
