Travel Blogs from Memphis
We packed the car and headed for Tennessee the morning of the 29th. The weather was great for the whole drive. We planned to stop for lunch in Nashville on our way to Memphis. With the help of our handy-dandy tour book Adam found a great little spot called the Mad Platter in Nashville's Historic District. The food was fantastic, all fresh, local …
Graceland really started with an eleven hour drive from Asheville. Asheville, by the way is lovely place, and the Waffle House makes outstanding grits. Also we were able to attend the 26th Annual Quilt Show, which made me want to whip out my sewing machine. But enough about this. Our commitment to Elvis (and Paul Simon) dictated that we needed at …
... over the years. It has a great vibe and there is loads to see and do, however, like New Orleans it is a city riddled with violence and crime and it is still trying to come to grips with its many complex social issues. It is not a wealthy place and it was the dirtiest city we visited, it almost seemed a bit neglected and this is a great shame as it is a city of great importance in Americas recent history and cultural struggles.

Historical Traveler Reviews Artisan Hotel Memphis
Worst Experience ever!
This hotel needs to be torn down!!!! It is absolutely rediculous! Nasty Nasty Nasty. The wallpaper has this nasty film on it. The carpeting was dirty there was trash left in the rooms. Very unpleasant experience.
Clean rooms, great price
We stayed here for two nights - the staff was very nice, and the rooms were average. It obviously has a little wear and tear (the bathrooms, although very clean, were dated, as mentioned in another person's review), but this did not bother me, as they were spotless. The room itself was very clean. Requests for extra towels were met with promptly, although there were no glasses in the room, and the ice machine on our floor was out of order. There was also duct tape on the back of the remote control (but it did work fine).
I would stay here again, for the reasonable price, cleanliness, and the great location.
We chose the Ramada as everywhere downtown was booked out and situated 3 miles from Beale Street we figured we could taxi in of a night. We arrived at the Ramada and where greated by a very friendly receptionist who quickly checked us in and told us about the "Beautiful hot buffet breakfast" that they serve every morning for $3 each. We then parked our car in the free car park which was well lit and had plenty of spaces. Things were looking good.
My wife and I made the mistake of spending two nights here. The first room we were given had a clogged sink. I went down to the front desk and tried to explain the problem to the desk attendant, but he apparently understood very little English. He finally asked me "Room dirty?" I tried again to explain that the sink was clogged, but he did not understand. I finally simply said "Yes, room dirty" and he gave me another room. The next room did not have many of the common amenities (washcloths, handtowels, kleenex, paper or plastic cups, coffee). Also, the floor was not clean and the remote control did not work. Consider staying elsewhere when you come to Memphis. I would rather stay outside of the city and deal with the inconvenience of driving into the city then stay here again.
we stayed here in May for 4 nights. having got ourselves a very reasonable deal off the internet, we were not entirely sure what to expect as it was our very first visit to Memphis. However, from the moment we arrived we encountered nothing but first class service. the young lady on the reception desk was most helpful, and i can honestly say that never in the world have i ever encountered a more polite and friendly level of service from the gentleman who ran the restaurant. he was the very epitome of the famous southern hospitality we had heard so much about.the rooms were clean, comfortable and airy, the swimming pool a welcome haven in the midday heat and the location a mere 5 mins drive from downtown. all in all i would definitely go back here and would have no hesitation about recommending it to others planning a trip to Memphis.
My fiancée and I stayed at the Ramada Midtown Memphis from 7-22 - 7-25 in 04. For the price and location we thought it was our best bet, unfortunately we were very wrong. Upon pulling into the underground garage, not only was there piles of garbage throughout, there were many random liquor bottles littered about. The lobby was nice (although the restaurant has been permanently closed), but when we arrived in our room and checked the bed, there were literately hundred's of black hairs spread on the white sheets. Not only that, one of the two elevators was out of order, the pool was dirty, and our bathroom was an atrocity. Also, a day before we checked out, our keys stopped working. We got them re-magnetized, but with no apology. To top it all off, I went to the lobby vending machine and bought a lemonade, but wouldn't you know it, out came a Hawaiian Punch. As far as the location, it's much too far to travel downtown without your own automobile. I will never stay there again.
Our 2 night stay at this hotel was substandard. We checked in around 3PM, with a most pleasant desk staff, but upon inspection of our room, there were No towels, only one washcloth. We called the front desk, and they stated they'd send up towels as soon as possible. We then left and came back around 10:30, but still No Towels! After requesting towels several times, once having to go down into the lobby, we finally got 2 towels.
We stayed in a room with a king bed on the 7th floor. I was a little worried by the looks of the exterior but when we got into our room I was very pleased. It was very clean & more than enough room for myself & my husband with a sitting area & desk. My only complaint is that the bathroom was small & dingy. You could tell that it was clean but it looked really dated. Don't be surprized by the super hard water & weak water pressure in the shower either. Ample parking in the secure parking garage. The staff was also friendly & helpful. We didn't swim but the pool looked frighting- I would avoid it at all costs!!!
More than satisfied.
My fiancee and I had a wonderful time staying at the Ramada Inn Midtown. The elevators were spotless. The hotel smelled crisp and clean. Our room was beyond our expectations: brand new television sets, new linen, new towels, coffee maker. In fact, we were so pleased with the service and accommodations, we made reservations to stay there for our partial honeymoon.
Entering the hotel we encountered a dank musty odor that didn't diminish during our 3 day stay. The service desk personnel were pleasant enough but didn't know directions to well known tourist areas ( ie: Overton Square, which is only 2 blocks away! ) The rooms were standard and clean but we were dismayed upon returning from a day of touring to find the housekeeping staff had RE-FOLDED our wet towels that we had left on the floor that morning and expected us to believe that they were fresh towels! Also, the plastic keys we were given took numerous times to work when attempting to enter our room. All in all not a great experience. The hotel restaurant and bar were closed also; we were told because of a name change and new licensing. Our daughter just started law school at U of Memphis and we will be visiting the area several times a year. Guess we will have to look for more suitable accomodations!
