I suppose we got what we paid for...

But I won't stay here again if traveling to Memphis. The location is far from ideal if you're planning to visit any of the 'usual' sites. Just trips from the hotel and back for dinner, and back into the heart of the city the next morning were laborious and uninteresting. The surrounding area is entirely industrial. In hindsight, would happily have paid more to be closer to the attractions.
And then there's the facility itself. We weren't expecting much, so there was nothing to be disappointed by with the exteriors. Though I was concerned about the color of the pool. But I was expecting to be able to use the in-room fridge. And had it been plugged in, we would have. By the time it was cold enough to use we were checking out.
We should have checked out earlier and skipped the breakfast. It certainly seemed as if the staff had skipped doing much to stock it. I would have mentioned something had anyone ever been available.
Note to management: when a guest has to use the house phone to get someone to the desk, it would be more reassuring that you're operating a professional establishment if that staff-person is wearing something other than gym shorts and socks.
