“Overall, fantastic place.” Raves Comfort Inn Downtown Memphis, Guest

“Overall experience was great. The location is right downtown, the value is reasonable. The room was spacious and was very well appointed. There are few rooms per floor, so it was very quiet. We requested a room higher up and was delighted with the view. Wifi was free, breakfast was decent. The pool was clean, uncrowded and very well maintained. Overall, fantastic place.”
