    Cheap secure parking, great room with super comfy beds and extremely clean room & bathroom, this hotel was worth more than we paid in my opinion. It's a few blocks to Beal St and sure, you do come across some beggars but they're all harmless and the great time you'll have on Beal St will be well worth the few blocks walk. The breakfast is very ample, the staff were all extremely nice and so I'd not hesitate in staying here again!

    Historical Traveler Reviews Comfort Inn Downtown Memphis

    Great hotel

    from

    Comfort Inn was fantastic value for money.

    Great location right near the Main street trolley and huge rooms!

    Ours had nice view of the river.

    Only complaint really was that there were some very odd people hanging round the nearby streets and park so stay alert.

    A downtown hotel with spacious rooms.

    from

    The hotel is opposite to Mud Island Entrance, you can walk there as they have a pedestrian bridge and monorail. And it is 7 blocks from Beale street, next to Main street and close to Confederate park. The hotel is a 14 story building, some rooms are facing the river (and cost more). Over all the hotel is pricey (about 100 dollars per night incl. tax). The view is great, we saw Mud Island River Park, the Pyramid and the river in the back. Unfortunately there are several interstate exits between the hotel and the Pyramid and the windows of the hotelrooms are not soundproof. You can not avoid traffic noise. The train/trolley is very noisy too. Right outside the hotel are trolley and busstops. The hotel has indoor corridors. Our room was very spacious with 2 queen beds and so much space still left. We had an airy feeling. There are 2 chairs and a table in the room and of course TV (big screen) with over 70 channels. Adjacent was a spacious dressing room with ironing board and a safe. In one corner there is the sink. Adjacent the bathroom. They provide shampoo, lotion, sewing kit, shower cap and hairdryer. The bathroom is very tiny. But it seems to be newly renovated and they have real tiles on the walls! Our room could be extended into a family suite to 2 adjacent rooms. Furniture is in dark colours and blankets in brighter colours. Windows are hughe and can be opened. The lobby is a very long and narrow room. At one end you find the elevators and chairs, this end leads to a Greek restaurant. Then there is the concierge center with a security desk and security personel. Very friendly staff. Part of the room is a tiny business center (small table with internet access for free). The rest of that long room is breakfast area with lots of tables and chairs. Parking is provided in the surveilled parking garage(basement and upstairs). The basement parking garage is what you would expect from a downtown parking garage, dark, dirty, damp, full of unused stuff. I don't like place like these. From some spots of the parking garage access to the elevators was dark and not well lit. Breakfast had a good variety of cereal, toast, muffins, eggs, even gravy and biscuits, oatmeal and more. There is staff to clean the tables and put more food on the cupboards. You can heat eggs or milk in a microwave. Fresh fruit is provided too. There is a sign that says fitness room is on 9th floor. I can recommend this hotel if you do not get disturbed by loud traffic noise, otherwise stay somewhere else.

    Great staff, rooms Ok

    from

    The staff were excellent room big with a good view, but slightly tired.

    Location was good in this excellent town. Breakfast can be very busy and it can be hard to get a seat! Beale St is a 10 minute walk away but I suggest you use a well lit route as the town can still feal slightly threatening away from the main streets. A cost effective location for tourist but make sure you get a room with a view of the Missississippi, great to watch it roll past.

    Enjoyable stay

    from

    My husband and I stayed here Easter 2003 and were very pleased with the hotel. The central attractions (Beale St, shops, cinema) are close enough to walk to but far enough away so as to make the hotel quite quiet. Trolley buses run at the back of the hotel if you don't want to walk! Continental breakfast is great but the breakfast area is usually busy and it can be difficult to get a seat. Do what we did if we couldn't find a space - take a tray from your room, fill it with goodies and then have breakfast in bed! We had a great view of the Pyramid from our room.

    Pretty good

    from

    Good overall. Relatively easy access from I40. Reasonable price.

    Attached parking garage included in price. Clean, spacious room. Nice view of the river from our 15th floor. Decent continnental breakfast.

    Within walking distance of the Peabody Hotel (the ducks), downtown trolly, and restaurants. Beale Street sites are a long walk away, but not bad. We even hiked to Sun Studio which is much further away.

    Little shortcomings: The hotel representative who made our reservations volunteered a room at a lower rate, but when we arrived, that rate was not indicated on the confirmation. The hotel clerk gave us a blank stare when I mention it. I also had to return to the car in the garage to get our tag number before we could register. I should have been told this was needed when we made the reservation, and mention should have been made then of a $1/day fee for a room safe (which could be removed by request at checkout). Many elevator floor buttons and indicators were not lit. There was no ice machine on the 15th floor, but the desk clerk directed us to one on the 14th floor. A soft drink machine was out of some items. Our TV remote was missing, but it was quickly replaced when I made mention of it.

    Walking around the downtown area was not entirely comfortable, particularly as darkness approached. Memphis seems to be in the midst of revitalizing its downtown. There is evidence of a sincere commitment.

    Recommendation to inn management: Provide an info packet with a little map to the local sites and restaurants within walking distance. Hotel clerk directions were not always clear, particularly when it came to distances.

    Just fine

    from

    Pretty good overall. Nice room. A 15 story hotel. Good view of river.

    Pleasant staff. Relatively easy access from I40. Parking included in price, and relatively easy in/out. Good continental breakfast. Beale Street and Peabody Hotel within reach walking - not a short walk.

    Downsides: Downtown area seems to be struggling with renewal. My wife and I didn't feel comfortable walking around after dinner. The individual who made my reservation volunteered a lower rate room, but when I arrived, the reservation was not at that rate, and the desk clerk just gave me a blank look when I told her. Things they should have told me when making reservation: have your car tag number when you check in; there is a $1/day safe fee which you can decline. Minor problems: locating ice machine; vending machines out of some items; elevator button lights not working; TV remote missing (but quickly replaced by staff). Recommendation I'd make to management: Have an info handout with map showing nearby restaurants and sites.

    Perfect

    from

    I travel a lot so I've had my share of "bad stays." The Memphis trip was a planned family vacation and I was nervous about where to stay. I am pleased to announce that I highly recommend the Comfort Inn Downtown.

    The staff was nothing less than courteous and interested in ME as a guest. They went way out of their way to answer any questions I had about Memphis and they were always courteous and interested in ME when passing.

    Security is great. The underground parking deck (free for guest) is a gated access controlled by the front desk. Outside doors lock in the evening so that only registered guest can enter using their card keys.

    We were within walking distance of almost all attractions. We did very little driving once we parked.

    The rooms were spacious, clean and quiet. I was never awaken during the night by noises.

    No, I don't work for the Comfort Inn. I am truly a satisfied guest!

    Good hotel

    from

    I used the reviews on this website to help me decide to book a room at this hotel, and I'm glad I did. While Comfort Inn overbooked the room I asked for, they gave me a suite for the same price. The desk clerk was very courteous and professional about this minor glitch in what was to be a very pleasant stay. The staff, no matter whom, was very nice. The hotel was clean and centrally located. It's across the street from a lovely park called Mud Island, just a few blocks from Beale Street and within walking distance of so many other wonderful sites in Memphis.

    Pleasant surprise

    from

    Stayed 2 nights recently and was pleasantly surprised by friendly staff and lovely room. Great idea having the basin outside of the bathroom for those sharing with a bathroom hogger! No view to speak of as we were at the back of the building but it was quiet, which was a bonus. Room had 2 dbl beds, TV, air cond, bath/shower combined, in room safe. Continental bfast was included in the price. Cant really comment on the location as everywhere seems "dodgy" when you're a tourist and unfamiliar with the area, however it was only a 15min leisurely walk to Beale St and there was plenty to see on the way.

    Lovely room, great view

    from

    Rooms are huge and very comfortable. Lovely view of the river and Pyramid Arena. Great location five minutes walk from Beale Street. I would definitely stay there again.
