Staff was courteous. Helpful on information. Wi-fi did not work, tv did not work. No one came to repair tv problem after it was reported on first day.

the hotel was very small and cramped. Not clean

Pros: NOTHING
Cons: remodel the whole hotel inside and out. It was convient to Beal Street, and the Trolley on Main street/
Had a bad experience of not having our room clean in a timely fashion or not cleaned at all.

Sketchy Looking on the Outside

We drove past the Inn the first time as it looks rough. However, the room was fine and it's in good walking distance to Beale Street and just across the street from the Redbirds' field.

renovation

Was somewhat unorganized because of renovation going on. Was near baseball stadium. Wasn't sure of it being in a good area. But was gated.

Cons: Wifi was available but unstable. Couldn't hold a connection. No phone in the room. No ironing board. TV had like 10 working channels.
Overall it was an ok place, but wasn't too excited with the resources.

Disappointing and desk clerk need to be retrained.

Pros: Nothing
Cons: Start with the desk clerk
Location: The hotel is in a good location.
When i got to the hotel the clerk gave me a room that did not have any place to hang your clothes or any dresser the room i ask for was a king size on the first of July she stated that was what Travelocity said I ask for she gave me a double bed bug infested room the toilet would not flush. After complaining to the desk clerk and showed her the email that Travelocity assured me was a room with a king size bed she appeared to call someone and gave me the room I ask for and a room with double beds near where I was.

Great location for a reasonable price during the festival!

Pros: close to beale
Cons: shabby comforter & towels
The room is better quality than the outside pictures may lead you to believe. The security is great. Easy access to Beale Street. Would definitely come back.

Better than I thought

I didn't expect much being rated one star. This was a pleasant surprise. Great location-walking distance to Beale St and all the sports venues. The building next door looked scary, but no problems. Rooms clean and well furnished. Front office provided hair dryer on request. Appliances in room were great for a longer stay. Not a large room, but suitable for 1 or 2. A computer is available for public use but $*/30 minute access is charged. Free parking is a big bonus ! It more than offset the scant breakfast. I will stay there again and have already recommended it to the rest of my group who stayed at Holiday Inn for nearly twice the price.
