... and jailed for the offence. The hotel no longer operates but remains a shrine to this great man. There are more photos reflecting the civil unrest in Memphis and Martin Luther King at the Rock and Soul Museum, which was my next stop of the day. There's a bit of Elvis stuff here, but this place is not really about him, it's much more about the soul than the rock, it's really bluesy and reflects the music that is still played in all the bars and restaurants in Beale ...
... we returned i started channel flicking waiting for Law and Order SVU. We noticed we were on weather warning...tornado watch and thunder and hail watch. The schedule programs were cancelled and we were left with several channels of weather notices. We are scheduled to be on warning until 3am which is several hours away, its going to be a long night...will let you know the outcome ...
... edamame (again), I grabbed some chicken pho and an Asahi, and Kelsey had a tofu vegetable curry soup with a plum blossom martini. On the short walk home we laughed, gave a homeless guy on a bicycle a few dollars to get a sandwich, and took a bunch of stupid photos of each other.
Back in our room, we sorted out all of our luggage, and then got ready for sleep - our 11 hour bus to New Orleans leaves at 930AM tomorrow, and we don't want to be late!
From our swamp tour which ended at 1.30pm it was a 7.5 hour drive straight through Mississippi to Memphis, Tennessee, the home of Graceland. It was a long drive and as we had left so late we didn’t arrive until after dark. We were speculating about poor old Mississippi state which seemed to not be famous for anything! We had just left New Orleans in Louisiana, and were on our way through Mississippi ...
... tourist tips that the entertainers were all after. Heads up little fella! He was cute; he was talented; and he earned every dollar he received.
Overall, it was an eventful day and deserving of a little rest and relaxation. We’ll head back to the RV for the night and tomorrow we’ll travel onward. Not sure where our next stop will be, but we’ll be sure to see you there.
By the way, Elvis had definitely left the building.

Historical Traveler Reviews Sam's Town Tunica Tunica Resorts
The rooms are pretty nice, just a notch above a Hampton Inn. Very clean. TV lineup limited and no high-speed Internet access -- yeah, I know you go to Tunica to gamble, not Web-surf, but high-speed even as a paid option would be nice.
We stayed 2 nights in East Tower in February. Sams Town Casino had sent us coupons for a free weekend stay so we decided to take advantage of it. We are not big gamblers and do not spend a whole lot of money when we go to the casinos, so Sams Town was the first place that has ever sent us free weekend coupons. The comps at this place are by far the best I have received in Tunica. We had free buffets for breakfast and dinner the whole weekend and they have already sent us more free weekend coupons!
We travel to Tunica twice a year and this is the first time we have stayed at Sam's Town and it will be the last. The service was terrible and the staff was most unfriendly. We had to wake the valet at 6 am who was asleep at the desk. The room was dirty and the mattress and box springs on the bed were torn and needed to be replaced. We had planned on staying there for 3 days but checked out and went to Bally's for the rest of our vacation.
I stayed with my sister, her husband and their 4 kids in Sam's Town East Tower.
Stopped here on a car trip from Kentucky to Texas in December of 2003. First of all, this place is about a 45-minute drive from Memphis, which I wasn't prepared for but not the fault of the hotel. I reserved a room with a coupon rate I received from the Tunica tourism packet. When I arrived, I was told the complementary breakfast buffet on the coupon was not valid since that part of the hotel wasn't open in the off-season. However, they put me in a room closer to the main casino which would have cost more, so it was a wash in the end. Room was large, clean and I would have liked to sleep in the bed a few more hours, but I had to get on the road early. The bathroom was large and nice as well; in fact, it almost seemed a bit too large , but that's just me. I won $12 and got a free drink in the casino after 15 minutes, which is about the best night I've ever had in one. I would recommend this place if you have to be hanging out in northern Mississippi.
Sams Town hotel
My husband and I decided to take a trip to Tunica on our way to Memphis. After Playing in the casino we decided to get a room for the night. after spending 112.00 for the room we made our way down the mile long hallway to what we expected to be a nice room. yeah right!!!! we opened the door to a room that looked like hell.. It was small, smelly, and dirty!!! The water pressure was awful, the People was very rude when I called the front desk to complain. After walking a mile to my room we decided to sit in the hot tub outside, but alas once we arrived out side we were rudely told that we could not get in cause they was cleaning it out. well I will NEVER stay there agian and I can assure you neither will any of my friends.
We have visited this location twice. Very rude staff
This was the first time at this Hotel/Casino. I enjoyed my stay there and the rates and comps were very good. I found the Hotel rooms to be a little more noisy than other Hotels I have frequented. Voices carried from the Hallways to the room quite loudly. The services were good however and the offer of two free nights stay were worth the noise. The entertainment was good.
This is only casino at present to have Keno. Located on second floor. Have patience-the service is slow at ticket counter & they take long breaks-otherwise alot of fun.
We stayed in the East Tower of Sam's Town and had a great whirlpool suite. The people were very friendly everywhere we went. The food was good priced and excellent, especially the prime rib at the Hollywood Diner. The employees in the casinos were very friendly and helpful. Our favorite casinos were Hollywood, Gold Strike and Sam's Town. We drove there and we didn't have any problems getting anywhere...no traffic congestion. We had a wonderful vacation there!
