Sleep Inn at Court Square
Travel Blogs from Memphis
Jenandjake stayed here on Feb 8, 2014 during their trip titled: Jen & Jakes Gap Year.
Well it seems to be getting harder and harder to close my backpack each morning! On Friday we spent most of the day on the coach driving from New Orleans to Memphis, where 10 people left the tour and we had 9 new arrivals. When we got there, most of us walked to the FedEx Forum to watch a basketball game between Memphis Grizzlies and Detroit …
... 8pm and headed straight for Beale St. to see what it was all about. It was loud and busy. Full of music competing for ear time, but it was cool. We were hungry so we needed to find a restaurant and Cat wanted ribs. Not knowing where to start we asked a couple of policemen and they recommended Rendezvous, famous for its ribs. After getting directions we arrived to find that the place was very popular and had to wait for a table around 20 ...
... where we learned much about the great man who died for a great cause. Martin. Luther. King. Jr. Inside the museum we got to see crime evidence from the assassination site. After this we saw 6 alternate players from the San Antonio Spurs lineup since they were in Memphis here to play the Grizzlies tomorrow in the playoffs.
At the same time, Elvin, Taichi, Craig, Christian, and Christina went with Balmeo and Ms. Nakamura ...
... at us since our
arrival at Graceland yesterday morning - shopping for the tackiest Elvis
souvenir. Unfortunately, the Elvis sunglasses with attached sideburns were
$13. They were funny, but not $13 funny. So I settled for some postcards
and a, Elvis-meets-Nixon coffee cup. The rain had finally let up enough at
this point for a scurry back to the car and our planned trip to the National
Civil Rights Museum.
As we walked up, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sleep Inn at Court Square Memphis
Great Front Desk
My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights.
Rooms clean and comfortable.
Good location. Right on trolley line and set in between 2 nice squares/parks.
Very friendly and helpful front desk.
Bagels stale at breakfast.
Maid didn't change shot light bulb.
This a very good deal for the money and location. The reason I am rating it above average instead of average is because of the people at the front desk. We delt with several different people and they were are very nice and helpful. They gave directions, suggested a good place to eat ribs, located baseball tickets and gave change for the trolley. One of the best front desks in any category of hotel.
A very practical choice
Stayed here for nights of May 24 and 25,2004 on the strength of previous published reviews.We found it to be a very practical choice at a fair rate which suited our purposes admirably and if travelling to Memphis again we would not hesitate to choose this hotel again.The room was clean,fresh and well presented.Parking was on site and we were able to rely on the streetcar which stops at the backdoor of the hotel to take us to Beale Street and other tourist attractions altough during the day most are within easy walking distance if one is prepared to deal with being approached by beggers on the streets.The free continental breakfast was OK although at peak times available tables to eat it were in short supply.Overall a good practical choice at a reasonable price for a downtown Memphis hotel.
The hotel we stay at in Memphis
My husband and I love to get away to Memphis at least one weekend a month and this is the ONLY hotel we will stay in! The location is great, staff is friendly, rooms are always clean and nice and the price is well within a "weekend getaway" budget. GREAT all around for the price. We have plans to stay here again at least 3 more times this summer. I would recommend this hotel to everyone. Located around the pyramid, beale street, river front, steamboats, trolley, peabody, etc.. You can park your car, check in to the hotel and walk or take the trolley everywhere you need to go. No need to drive.
Great location. Easy walk to Peabody Place and Beale Street. Convenient parking. Comfortable rooms. Good continental breakfast. Very convenient to Highway 61 if going to and from Tunica. The Pyramid is a quick drive or a short walk. Reasonable prices. Overall a good bargain if staying downtown.
I wouldn't stay anywhere else!
I have been a guest at this hotel five times @ 14 nights per stay, so I have plenty of experience with this hotel. I have never stayed at a hotel that made it such a pleasant experience. Good people, clean, safe rooms and grounds, and reasonable rates. Perfect location for me, and walking distance to everything. I'll definitely be back again and again, and I give this hotel my highest recommendation! See for yourself.
Sleep Inn offered what you may expect of this kind of hotel. Clean, good rooms, nice service and the location is OK.
The location was just perfect! The Main street trolley at the back door, Mississippi river at your front door. Beale street just a short walk away. Staff was friendly & very helpful. Rooms, although, slightly smaller than the "normal", were very clean. No problems at all.
This hotel is easy to find in the center of downtown Memphis. It is directly across from Conferderate Park and Mud Island. We loved being able to walk to Beale Street and Peabody Place (5 Min. walk). The rooms are small and some show their age, but we felt very safe at this location. Breakfast runs from 8 to 10 however, most of the food is gone by 9 so, get up to eat!
I got stuck in this place by the Springhill Suites next door. Apparently they had given my room at Springhill to someone else. Very dissapointing. The sleep inn was dingy. The carpet was moist. The shower had mold in it. There was no real closet just a pressboard lean-to with a pole for your clothes. I had dreams of bugs crawling all over me. What a nightmare! I talked to Springhill about my evening and they miraculously found a room there for the rest of my stay at no charge.
This hotel is moderately priced, suitable to most budgets, and you'll get your money's worth. The staff is helpful and polite. You won't walk into a grand welcoming ceremony, but you have a hospitable group of people who are eager to help. Don't go here for a five-star experience, but if you just need a nice place to stay on a bit of a budget, you'll do well to stay here.
