We wanted to stop overnight and visit Graceland enroute to New Orleans. I picked Days Inn Graceland based on tripadvisor reviews. If I was going to visit Graceland again, I would definitely pick this Days Inn.
Location! Across the road from the Graceland complex which was much larger than I anticipated. While I wouldn't venture past the hotel after dark, I felt completely safe during the day due to the large amount of tourists/people in the area.
Decor and grounds. The lobby and grounds were perfect for putting one in the mood for Elvis. The hotel had a fence around it which made it feel safer after dark.
Staff. All the hotel staff was friendly and went out of their way to help. They even told us we could stay parked at the hotel while visiting Graceland "as long as you want".
Bed: This was the hardest bed I have ever slept on and it was covered in plastic which was pretty noticeable. I understand that they are probably trying to promote longevity of the mattress but the plastic was too much. I probably would not stay more than one night simply because of the bed.
Breakfast: Selection consisted mainly of carbs. Pastries, bread products, etc. I think they had bananas but the selection was very, very limited.
Pool: Cold but it was April so I understand.
Overall, I would not hesitate to stay here again IF I just wanted one night stay to visit Graceland.
