The front desk has like bullet proof glass covering it which I asked about: the clerk told me that armed robberies to gas stations in the area but nothing at the hotel YET! Eeek! The first thing I noticed was the smell. It was pretty bad. Smelled like something was burned; like plastic. The room was old but in good... More

It was very late when we arrived so finding another hotel was not an option. This hotel stinks beyond human understanding. It smells like a mixture of sulphur from burned matches, old soap from a gas station bathroom, my grandparents old basement, moldy laundry left in a washing machine, and a rotting corpse. I just sprayed a half of a... More

Stayed here last week. Check in was interesting with a partitioned reception area and a woman dressed in gym gear with pink hair and eating an icy pole Room stank of old soap and mould. Shower was good but looked like something from a 70s space movie. White sheets had weird brown stains. Dont stay here

I stayed in this hotel for 5 days while on business in Memphis TN. Upon entering the main lobby you will immediately notice a protective glass surrounding the Front Desk. Something I have never seen before at any of my pass stays in a choice hotel. The first thought in my mind was is this a safe place... I checked... More

The manager was very good and he was very cooperative and helpful. The room and entire hotel area was kept clean regularly. Also the free wifi and breakfast in the morning was the excellent thing to have in such a cheap price.

Stayed at this hotel as it was close to airport and photos were complimentary. It was dirty, door to bathroom hung off a hinge, hairdryer didn't work and the strong disinfectant smell in the room was unbearable. Unfortunately I didn't realise that pets were allowed and whilst we were checking in I noticed guests with dogs coming and going. The... More

I wouldn't say average neither will I say Horribke but I will say it's safer than the looks of it. Inside hotel room vs. outside rooms... I guess that was my only positive. Wasn't the cleanest, I cleaned the bathroom twice and found new dirt every time. More than likely my last visit.

Dangerous. Much better choices other side of airport or slightly up the road toward airport on american way(same road) for same $. Was quoted one price then charged 20% more for room. Desk clerk claimed he couldn't fix it, tough. Even if you are exhausted and just need a quick place to lay your head for the night go elsewhere.... More

We arrived at this hotel which had been booked by our travel agent in Australia. The service was poor the girl at the desk was of no help at all. Our luggage had been lost and they did not care. Would not even try and help us make phone calls to find our luggage. We asked for a non smoking... More

It was an average room. Last minute stay type of deal, since original reservations made at another hotel fell through. Staff was very polite coming and going. The location of the hotel was alright as well. Nothing to just brag about and say I stayed there, but if you need to lay your head for an overnight visit, it'll do.
