Nice alternative to Beale street hotels

Posted Apr 15, 2014
Pros: Location and feel
Cons: Happy with set up
Location: Location just off of 40 and a very short drive or cab ride to Beale street and surroundings.
Great place not far from Beale and other downtown events and activities. Great restaurant in the hotel and a bar and other restaurants within walking distance. Great hiking trails along the river with outstanding views. Rooms were upscale and big bathroom. Check it out the next time you're heading to the riverfront.

Lovely hotel in a cute neighbourhood

Posted Apr 15, 2014
Pros: The views at the Terrace restaurant were much nicer than in the rooms, so go up there to truly enjoy! Otherwise enjoyed the coziness and convenience.
We enjoyed our stay at the River Inn. It is in a quiet mostly residential neighbourhood (Mud Island) of Memphis that is still convenient to downtown. We wanted to get out in the park beside the hotel but it rained most of the time we were there unfortunately. Our bed was super comfortable and awesome. The champagne, port wine, and chocolates were nice touches! Breakfast at Paulette's was delicious although we slept through one day, oops! We also enjoyed a couple of meals at Tug's bar across the street and had small plates and drinks at the Terrace one night, we would have LOVED to go on a nice evening when the windows would have been open. The views up there were really much nicer than in the rooms so go there to get a good feel of the Mississippi sunset!

This is a great little hotel with a good location. There is walking along the Mississippi, good food and wonderful staff. I would stay there again if I go back to Memphis. Really polite staff and wonderful breakfast.

Very nice hotel on river

Posted Apr 6, 2014
Pros: very helpful staff and great breakfast
Cons: Our hotel phone didn't work initially; we couldn't make any local calls until the problem was resolved. Hotel's computer was too slow to be usable.
Location: great place for a relaxing river walk. Easy drive to Graceland & Beale street where parking rates were quite reasonable
Upon arrival we enjoyed walking along banks of the Mississippi just across from the hotel. The next morning we had an easy drive to Graceland. We then drove to our tour with Backbeat tours at Sun studios and their Mojo tour . We had a great supper at BBKings. The hotel staff were very helpful with suggestions and directions

What a friendly town!

Posted Apr 5, 2014
Pros: Location, character and helpful staff.
Cons: n/a
Location: Hotel overlooks a scenic river-walk and is only a short drive to Beale St. Don't miss the Rock & Soul museum, Sun Records tour or the Civil Rights mu
Staff was exceedingly pleasant, professional and helpful. The connected restaurants were excellent and the nightly turn-down service that included port and chocolate truffles was a nice touch.

Great view of Mississippi River

Posted Mar 5, 2014
Pros: Location next to river is great. Several restaurants in the area which was good since we were there in the middle of a huge ice storm.
Cons: Our room was a little cool, but I think it was due to the large windows and the fact that the temp was in the low teens.
Neat hotel with lots of charm. Room was nicely done and bed was very comfortable. Room rate included gourmet breakfast at Paulette's which was delicious. We also had dinner there one night and it too was excellent.

Traditional Hotel With Local Flair

Posted Feb 22, 2014
We enjoyed wonderful hospitality and casual elegance at this convenient small hotel on the quiet side of town. The candle light and live piano truly welcomed us! The Terrace offered us a perfect and satisfying dinner option for blue jeans- clad travelers after a tough travel day. Our college son joined us and enjoyed the friendly staff. Paulette's offers a relaxing, if formal, delicious complimentary breakfast. We appreciated the local art. The setting and walks along trails next to the Mississippi was safe and clean and breathtaking and we were just minutes from Beale Street ! Definitely coming back!
