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 …
Oh my God, Memphis, you are incredible. Today was an absolutely amazing day, but I'll start off with the adventures of last night. Dinner was good, but the dessert was better. We actually got to cook and make our own s'mores at the table!! Nobody knew what to do, but thankfully Nikki had shown me how to make them the night before I left :) they …
After the JFK museum we headed to the Cowboys Stadium. It was pretty incredible, this huge billion dollar stadium that had the world's biggest HD TV over the field that was something like 50 metres by 24 metres? Insanely huge lol! We got to see the locker rooms of the Cowboys players and cheerleaders, and even got to go out onto the field and take …
We'd left New Orleans in the early afternoon, heading up the bayou and the swamps (gator central) getting into Memphis around 10pm. The welcome party of a dozen Police cars sounded standard after reading the Wikipedia stats re violence in the city but it pretty much turned out to be the safest and cleanest city (city centre anyway) we'd been …

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.
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.
