The hotel is on the edge of campus, in a quiet, mostly residential neighborhood. My husband and I spent a very pleasant evening here for a visit to our daughter, who lives nearby. We would recommend the restaurant highly---good food, fresh salad bar, and wonderfully courteous service. Our suite was exactly as pictured---very comfortable, providing the perfect place for our family evening afterward. Very attractive as a place to hold a conference center, and friendly staff all around. Interesting museum on the second level---story of the "founding father" of the Holiday Inn.

Room Tip: We appreciated being just steps away from the restaurant, on the first level.

Stayed here one night for an event on U Memphis campus. The hotel lobby area and my room were both in excellent condition. The room was actually a suite (but at a rather sweet price for a suite) and would have been great for an extended stay.

I also interacted with the front desk staff a few times and always found them to be friendly and helpful. Didn't have any food here, so can only comment on what you see above. I would definitely stay again./

Stayed here for a conference at University of Memphis on October 23-25. This motel is across the street from the university and our meeting facility. Excellent location for out meeting. It has a nice suite setup with refrigerator and microwave. The rooms were large and clean. The front desk staff were mostly university students working on a hospitality degree from the university. They were friendly and helpful. Would stay again.

This is a good Holiday Inn, right across the street from the north side of the beautiful University of Memphis campus on Central Avenue. I had a double queen suite with microwave and fridge. Prepaid rate was $127. Room is comfortable, though bed could have been a bit softer. Pretty clean, though found some foreign hair in bathroom. Not enough electrical outlets - would have been nice to have had a USB plug for the business traveler. Staff is friendly. Areas appears safe. About 10 minutes from Central BBQ.

Needed a place to stay while attending meetings at the University. This hotel was recommended by the school and it is amazing. It is a part of the hospitality and resort management programming they have and you can really see the care and attention put into this facility. The room was great and had a separate sitting area with two double beds. Very clean, comfortable bed, and overall really nice. I would stay again.

Normally I try to steer clear of Holiday Inns because of many past bad experiences. However, I was on a University of Memphis campus tour with my high school senior this week. There are only two universities in Tennessee with his desired major. After reading the reviews on the hotel website and looking at the location, I decided to book it for our one night stay. I am so glad that I did. We had a two room suite that was really clean, nice and comfortable. The suite had two TV's which is good when you are traveling with a teenager.The location for the university can not be better. The campus is right across the street. We could see the buildings that we were visiting from the hotel. He has decided to attend The University of Memphis. We will most definitely stay at this hotal when we are visiting him next year.

Room Tip: Our room was very quiet. I do not think that the location of a room is important. The elevators ar...

I spent 3 nights attending my class reunion. The staff was very pleasant allowed me to check in early after an early morning flight. I was very tired and I was sure I would not be able to but they offered me a double room instead of the king I reserved but that was fine. I justed wanted a comfortable bed and that certainly was the case. They had a breakfast buffet which was very good and the price was only $8.95. They do not have an onsite swimming pool and if you are looking for night life this is not the place. The bar closes at 10pm which is early even for me and I am not a night owl. There are many restaurants within a couple of miles. All staff members I encountered both at the fron desk and the restaurant were very pleaseant.
