Guard dog in the lobby!!!!! Not a good start!!
Arrived at 4pm and found the lobby is locked, turned out its locked 24 hrs a day with a guard dog present. You have to use the night window in a very hot little room attached to the lobby. Screwed up our reservation. Booked two rooms, no fridge in one, no microwave. Blow dryers, irons non-existant. Never cleaned the bathroom until I complained, even then bad job. One king room was barely furnished with a queen bed and a chair. Other was better with a sofa and table, which did have a king size. No closets. Carpets so dirty it blackened your feet. Their idea of cleaning, replace towels, spray the curtains with disinfectant and make the bed. You have to change your keycard daily, probably due to renting rooms by the hour, which we did not know. Horrible experience. Was told by the "manager" that there had been a fire and damage which is why they didn't have appliances...what???? Found out its under new management and within the last few months they have been in repair but the whole place was so run down, chipped paint, holes in the wall. I would not recommend this place to anyone!!!!! Rude staff who refused to give their name or the owners name. Just so many issues, luckily we weren't there much and the bed was comfortable. No bugs at least. This was not the hotel I saw when I booked it several months ago. The pictures must be very old. We couldn't even go anywhere else as Memphis was booked solid. Just bad overall experience and did not seem like a very good area.

Nightmare on East Shelby Drive
The night clerk was dressed in an oversized tshirt and grey sweat pants that dragged the floor and he was barefooted. He was unshavened and looked pitiful for the business! My first impulse was to run but it was late night and I am not that familiar with Memphis to run around searching fot a room. The room was huge but it needed to be vacuumed. The bathtub was clean! There was no remote for the TV and they only had one channel. Right person at the desk said that they had to send all the remotes back because they did not work. I believe the problem was they did not pay the cable bill so they only had one station! The king sized bed was clean but the mattress was lumpy. Oh my God! I would turn over into a gully and had to wriggle like a fat baby to get out! Never again at this location. Never.

Clean, comfortable room, close to the airport.
The hotel staff was very accommodating. I needed to print my boarding passes for our trip the following day, and the manager said she would do it. However, the hotel lobby was in total disarray from remodeling and closed most of the time. When I called her at the appointed time, she had already gone. The desk clerk had never printed a boarding pass before, but was willing to figure it out, and in less than 5 minutes we had our passes. The room was very clean and comfortable with a very comfortable king size bed. However, there was a lot of activity in the parking lot, with cars stopping just outside our door with radios blasting loud enough to wake the dead. This continued on most of the night. Very late at night, we were awakened by the desk clerk calling to see if we were OK. It seems that someone had called the desk and said he was locked in his room and couldn't get out, and he gave our room number. The clerk said he knew it was a bogus call, but just wanted to be sure we were OK. A friend told us later that this is a very unsafe neighborhood, but we went to the gas station and Subway across the street, and had no issues. If you are a sound sleeper and don't mind a bit of noise outside, this is an OK hotel. Just be sure to always keep your door locked. If a bit of noise will keep you awake, go elsewhere.

Truck stop hotel
They charge my bank and wasn't supposed to. And wouldn't reverse and take the cash causing my account to go into overdraft. On the day of checking out we found a bedbug crawling on a towel. The ceiling was falling apart and the tub was stained.

Ants in your bed
When I was in bed I thought I felt something on my back. It was late at night and I was super tired. When I awoke I pushed the bed spread open and looked down. Found about 15 ants visible on my bed. The first room he put me in I could barely breath because of the strong smell of smoke. When I went back to the front desk he said there should be no smell because it is a non smoking room. I could barely breath it was as if someone just smoked a cigar in the room.
