-most of front desk staff was unfriendly -building in poor condition -elevators were in terrible condition and sometimes did not work properly -parking costs extra -staircase and elevator bank doors were dangerous, heavy, hard to open, and had rusted holes in them that cut skin -lots of people on guest floors and around lobby at all times of the night who clearly were not paying guests
They charge 10 dollars a day for parking on a garage that is not even secure and the floor was wet when we got there and soaked when we left because the air condition leaked
If you're looking for a place to sleep and shower this is the place. The beds were comfy and the water was hot.
The facilities are very dated. Continental breakfast was subpar.
The place was not well-kept: old, run-down, dirty. The beds was clean but not very comfortable. We did not get room service nor clean towels on the second day - had to call and request them. The price was just a little lower than the Comfort Inn, which is where we should have stayed. The location of the hotel was great - just not a "great" hotel. If I visit Memphis again, I will not be staying at the Econo Lodge Downtown!!!!!
Extremely willing to help with any issues, messes, or questions. I would recommend this hotel to many because of the low prices, and fantastic location.
The staff seemed to not know how to knock and came in to the room multiple times and were surprised that we were in the room. The wifi wasn't the best.
The random people walking the halls. The elevator control plate on the 8 floor was loose. Overall poor quality fitness equipment did not work and no one cared.
The location is perfect, about 4-5 blocks from Beale Street. Parking is available and reasonably priced. Rooms have plenty of space. For the price it's hard to beat if you're just looking for a place to crash after the Beale Street experience.
The parking garage is dingy and ill kept, and the check in clerk was harried and impolite. Check out was much better since they weren't as busy. The furniture in the rooms was worn out about 20 years ago, and there was soap scum on the sink and shower. WiFi didn't work very well at all. This is definitely just a place to crash more than have a great hotel experience, which was exactly what I was looking for.
