Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I stayed here for four nights whilst working at the uni. Every room has both a bedroom and a separate lounge area with sofa and TV so there's lots of space. I found the atmosphere to be relaxed and comfortable. It was very quiet. The staff were all excellent - friendly and helpful. There are lots of lounge areas on the ground floor where you can sit. There's a bar that serves food and whilst the menu isn't huge, it was very welcome when I needed to eat after a long flight. I guess some people might say the decor is a bit dated but that sort of thing doesn't bother me. I'd definitely stay here again if I come back to Memphis.

I will always recommend this hotel strictly for the ease of a very centralized location, as well as it is one of the cleanest place I’ve stayed. The staff is fantastic every time. They are extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms are immaculate. Through this whole covid thing the room has been throughly wiped down. My only negative complaint is with breakfast from the grill. I ordered French Toast which was 9 dollars. I received two slices of white bread that were very good. Three slices of bacon that were not overly salty and crisped well. And one halved strawberry. I was then charged for a side of bacon(it said it came with) and paid 14.27 for this meal. I don’t complain about prices and Memphis has fed me way to well on my two day trip. But, if the breakfast isn’t included it’s not worth the price. Go out to get breakfast. You’ll be much more satisfied.

I used to stay at this hotel all the time before Covid. I think this was one of the earliest holiday inns, there is a big display on the founder of the chain on the 2nd floor. Fast forward post covid, and they are really struggling to provide basic customer service. When I checked in and went to my room, the bed was unmade with dirty linens on the floor. Called the front desk and they sent maintenance to my room to make the bed. The maintenance man explained how the room staff wasn't doing their job properly and so he had to do it. I appreciated his willingness to take up the slack, but I was tired and not really in the mood to listen to complaining at the end of a long trip. When I checked out I asked to have the receipt emailed. But the link that they sent didn't work to retrieve the folio, so then I had to call and be placed on hold while they figured out how to generate a receipt to email. Overall it was a mediocre experience.

Melvia is a shining example at this hotel!!

This hotel is in a great location in close proximity to U of M. I loved the layout with wide open spaces to lounge and chat. The rooms were suites with a separate kitchenette and living area.

Overall we had a good stay!

A group of us met in the hotel bar for drinks. My husband ordered a Manhattan. The bartender poured Grand Marnier and bitters into the shaker, with ice. When I questioned this, he said there are "lots of ways to make a Manhattan". No! The proportions may vary, but the ingredients for a Manhattan are not negociable. (They are Bourbon, sweet red Vermouth, and a cherry). We were disappointed, but decided not to make a fuss because we were with a group. Other than that, everything else was okay. We ordered appetizers for the table and they came out promptly. Nothing special, just something to nibble.

This is a very nice hotel, centrally located, the linens are soft and fresh and the room is very clean. We were in town for the funeral of a dear friend and a good night's sleep would have been so helpful. The mattress in our room was old (every time you turn over the springs twang), the mattress was no more than six inches thick and it was the firmest mattress I have ever encountered, and I'm 72 years old. I understand that some folks prefer a firm mattress but something in the middle would appeal to most people. There is also a large off putting stain in the tub. Last but not least when we returned from dinner about 10:30 we went to the entrance on the east side of the building expecting an entrance which would require a key for admission. Both doors were open. We reported it to the front desk and she called someone to go and lock the doors but that was very concerning to us. The breakfast was good and hot, the biscuits and bacon and hash browns were delicious. Hopefully you're going to write back and tell me that new mattresses are being installed soon. This is the flagship hotel of the Holiday Inn chain and a function of the University of Memphis and as such it should be outstanding in every way.

Upon entrance into the hotel building there were condiment packages scattered on the floor. The table tops in the lobby was covered in crumbs. That's okay, I figured, housekeeping can not be everywhere and it probably just happened. These items remained through out our stay.

The climate control in the room was loud and ineffective. The room was chilly.

The fold out couch's cushions were mismatched and did not fit.
We had to request sheets for the fold out bed. We only recieved a top sheet. No cover.

There were only enough towels in the room for one person. Three of us were staying. We had to request towels.

There were several small items around the hotel itself and our room that just needed fixed or replaced. Simple things like missing molding, or the curtains being off track to bigger items like loose light switches and pulled up carpets.

This is a conveniently located hotel with plenty of amenities to have a relaxing stay. I was able to acquire a room that was located near the banquet facilities for my event I was hosting. The staff was very welcoming and accommodating when there were any questions. I will recommend staying here.

Had meetings at the University of Memphis across the street. The staff was very nice upon check-in and let me check in early. I had clean sheets, but that’s about all I can say about the room. Towels and washcloths for last five previous guest. I was there for four nights, and I only had housekeeping one day. See the attached pictures. The towels were worn. The accessories were cracked. I had no body wash at all, and I asked for a refill and they didn’t give it to me. Hard to shower without body wash that’s attached to the wall.

I checked in the last week of February 2024, before check-in time, but the staff said, "We have a room ready." I was issued the swipe card to room 304. I swipe and enter the room only to observe an open, filled suitcase in the bedroom. I ran out and went to the desk. I informed the clerk that the room was occupied. The clerk apologized and said, "We will get you another room once one is available." A short time later, the clerk said we have a room available. I was issued the swipe card to room 117. I swipe and enter the room, only to see a laptop, tablet, and clothes. Again, I ran out and went to the desk. I informed the clerk that the room was occupied. The clerk had housekeeping check a third room. It was occupied. Finally, the fourth was not occupied. I did not feel safe. And I could have been hurt by the occupants. At check out, the clerk made a sarcastic comment regarding me telling my experience.
