Gus' fried chicken! This we going to be included in the whole day entry but it really deserves it's own story. We had been up and ventured through the home of elvis and all our bus driver Ray could tell us about Memphis that was if we did not go to Gus' fried chicken and have the chicken we may as well not have come to Memphis. A catch phrase used in his description from Ray was "it's so good you gonna slap your mumma!" So ...
... of Memphis in the 60s and 70s had its roots in the quartet and gospel music that came before it. I also started to realize that most of the singers that became famous in Memphis at this time started their singing careers singing gospel and/or in church choirs (Elvis included).
After imbibing at a bar down the street from the hostel and a full day of exploring I proceeded to sleep most of the next day.

... his life. We also had the opportunity to see some of his car collection and his big aeroplane called the Lisa Marie. I loved the story of how one day Elvis realised that Lisa Marie had never seen the snow so he flew her to the snow for her birthday, she stood in the snow and was straight back on the plane home.
We also visited Sun Studio's which is where Elvis was first discovered and recorded. When Elvis first came in ...

As I fly over the clouds, I saw the beautiful sunrise, the fluffy clouds, & peace overwhelms my heart. Life in itself is a challenge. But God got our back. Jer 29:11 He says there that He has plans to prosper us & give us good things. I thank God for guiding me through these years. For ...

The two men did not know each other, but found out they were both preachers- though of different branches- and they spent the WHOLE journey comparing the two and trying to convince the other that their belief was the right one. I have never heard such idiocy in my entire life, and it was a nightmare....impossible to drown them out. At one point I'm sure one of them was comparing ...

Historical Traveler Reviews La Quinta Inn & Suites Memphis Primacy Parkway
We stayed at the La Quinta for 10 days in August 2006 and we loved it ...the staff were very helpful and polite and would stand and talk to us without looking as though they must hurry off to attend to something else they were lovely. The rooms are large and very clean with air con and large television sets and they also have internet connections in all rooms it is wicked. There is also a gym and large pool and spa all free and a great breakfast buffet is served every morning from 6am till 9 am week days and 6.30 till 9.30 at weekends. The rooms are cleaned each day and sheets changed every 3 days unless you request otherwise and the maids are so sweet .The lift in the hotel is a little slow and access into the rooms and hotel from outside is by card only except the front entrance. There is a bus service outside the hotel grounds that will take you into downtown Memphis but beware it does stop at some lets say sad looking areas it makes you stop and think :( but the people are lovely very helpful. Inside the hotel there are vending machines and also ice machines which are much appreciated since it was nearly 100C every day whilst we were there and there is also a laundry service for all quests to use. This hotel is lovely we would stay there again but you do need transport to get to all the attractions so we hired a car 10/10 for sure.
My g/f and I stayed here for our trip to the Memphis Zoo. Great value and great rooms. I am not an avid pool goer, but they had a real nice outdoor pool and hottub. Staff was super generous and pleasant to deal with. Room was very clean and comfortable. Only negative was that the toilet leaked after flushing, but was fixed without us saying anything. Alot of things to do within driving distance. Can't complain about this place.
We often stay at LaQuinta because of their liberal pet policy. (It's interesting that they really do welcome pets, no hidden fees, no restricted to smoking room nonsense) and though we've stayed at about 20 different LaQuinta locations, I don't remember ever having to deal with excessive barking dogs or issues having to do with pet soiling. They do a remarkable job chain wide of keeping their properties clean and pleasant for dog lovers and dog loathers alike.
I chose this hotel based on the ratings on this site. It lived up to my expectations. Good location near mall and eating establishments and easy access to Poplar Drive which is the main non-interstate artery to get to midtown and downtown. Staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. Hotel was without a doubt the cleanest I have stayed in and I have stayed in plenty. Fitness room was really good and breakfast was excellent. Make a point to check at the tourist info center coming in to Memphis for a book of coupons. This hotel is included and you can save some $.
We had several problems. Lazy housekeeping.
Stayed three nights. Some basics overlooked by housekeeping. Had to request repeat proper cleaning two separate times. Things, especially the bathroom, looked barely wiped over rather than cleaned thoroughly.
I bathe, not shower, but on arrival the tub was dirty with someone else's ring around it and not cleaned well from our use the next two days. YEUK.
Washed bath down thoroughly myself the first night with soap and washcloth in order to use it.
Some bits I threw into the trash, but missed, were still on the bathroom floor!
Do not disturb sign ignored.
Persistent night time noise from (?) generator (?) and air shaft, disturbing.
Place pleasant in appearance, nice lobby, good breakfast.
Left our complaints on the feedback form.
Phenomenal Value - Nice, nice Motel
I swear, the only reason I didn't give this motel 5 "stars" is that the night before we stayed here, we were in a swanky Ritz-Carlton in New Orleans. If that Ritz is the gold "5-star" standard, this one deserved 4. Zero complaints from us.
We selected this motel because it was so inexpensive, but it delivered like the pricy motels. The room was lovely, the bed linens looked new, the mattress was perfectly comfortable, the bath area was well appointed, and the continental breakfast was abundant. It was quiet, the staff were respectful and helpful, and the location was great for our purposes.
Unlike our room in the Ritz, this motel's "non-smoking" room had never been smoked in!
The room was big and designed perfectly. The lay out of the room was exceptional. Compared to some of the bigger names in suites this one compared. The little bar area with fridge and microwave was perfect in space and placed in a neat area. The only thing I'd change would be the paper products.[a little rough]
Big Room for a little price
A group of us stayed here in two rooms in October 2004. Rooms are exceptionally large and comfortable. Only complaint is that they advertise Wireless Internet service, but what they mean is that you can use their wireless keyboard to access the internet on the tv for a fee.
Great place to stay!
The LaQuinta Primacy in Memphis was great. The staff were very friendly and helpful with directions.
The variety of items for breakfast was great, especially enjoyed the Waffles.
Check-In and Check-Out was very fast and easy.
Good location, easy access to all the attractions in the area.
This was our first time staying at a La Quinta and we look forward to staying with them again in the future.
Booked a group at this property for a convention and they were pleased with the property, amenities and location.
Quick access to convention sites, entertainment and food.
