The perfect place to stay in Memphis. The location couldn't be better - Beale Street yards away, really handy convenience store right next door, and good parking garage nearby (for which you are given a card for anytime access).

The owners were extremely friendly and gave us some useful tips. The apartment was perfect (we were in room 6) - comfortable and adequate / simple breakfast supplies provided.

Overall, don't hesitate to stay here - you won't regret it.

Stayed: March 2012

This is a wondeful place to stay in Memphis that is convenient to everything downtown. Right across the street from the Peabody so you can watch the duck walk, a couple blocks to Beale Street for nightlife and a short walk to the Mississippi River. We spent two nights here in mid March and had a great time. Tom and Sandy were wonderful hosts and we felt right at home. The rooms are unique and spacious, each one has a kitchenette with a full size fridge that is stocked with juice, water, milk and snacks on a daily basis. This is not a five star luxury hotel with lots of staff and amenities, but if you are looking for a great place to stay, with a charm and friendliness that is missing from most larger hotels this is the one for you.

We stayed at the Talbot Heirs during a roadtrip from Chicago to New Orleans in march 2012. This place has it at all !!! A funky little gem, hidden away and yet at crawling distance from Beale street, the Peabody Hotel , the Rocknsoulmuseum and so on...As soon as you arrive Tom and Sandy make you feel at home in their own relaxed way. Their hospitality was more than outstanding, their knowlegebility impressive. The daily refreshed snacks, juice and milk and the list of good restaurants and bars are just a small example of that. These people know what they are doing and they are doing from the heart !
As cliché as it might sound, the only regret we had was that we had to go !
A truly fantastic experience,
Ann (Belgium) and Mark (Ireland)

Room Tip: We stayed in suite nr 2 which I can only recommend but I have also seen a couple of the other rooms...

Our carriage driver referred to Talbot Heirs as the Hidden Hotel. You definitely will miss it if you are not looking for it. I am glad that we found it. My wife and I are from Memphis. On our 10-year anniversary we wanted to get away. We were going to take a trip (Hot Springs or Nashville). But decided that, having 3 kids, we wanted to stay close just in case they, or our parents, REALLY needed us. Also, we wanted to support the local economy.

We stumbled across Talbot Heirs during our hotel search and never looked back. Convenient to everything with spacious and eclectic rooms and very hospitable management, our stay at Talbot Heirs was incredible. Just something about it beat the average hotel experience. Also, the reasonable price really fit our budget.

You gotta check this place out for yourself!

Talbot Heirs is a fantastic hotel located within a couple blocks of Beale Street. The accommodations are outstanding. We had a room with a full kitchen, living room, a master bedroom, and a roll-away bed. Everything is extremely clean and tidy. The kitchen is stocked with milk, OJ, granola bars, cookies, and coffee. There is a cleaning service everyday that replaces towels, dresses beds, cleans, and stocks up food/beverage items. The hotel manager and his wife could not be friendlier. They are both extremely knowledgeable of the area and also always accessible. There is a lock on the street level/main door so there aren't any strangers walking through. We paid $175 a night over the weekend which was standard for the area. I recommend flying fish for dinner which is right next door.

Talbot Heirs is hidden on a Memphis side street. Don't let the location fool you. It's within walking distance of everything in the downtown area.

The suite was outstanding -- comfortable, well appointed and felt almost like home. Tts a great place to stay at a reasonable price.

Room Tip: #3 has a nice outside lounge area.
