    Are there any hotels left in Memphis?

    Seriously, this is your fault cyclone nation! I cannot find a hotel at all. I should of booked way sooner. But seriously, if anyone has recommendations of where to stay outside of Memphis let me know! Myself and 5 others have decided to make the trip, have our tickets but no hotel. Thinking maybe Germantown? But how far is that from Beale Street and what not? Driving wise anyways, I'm not sure how easy it is to get around Memphis or traffic. Thanks

    Germantown is not too far away and seems to be the 2nd favorite location of those travelling from what I have read. 20 mins from Beale and the stadium roughly it looks like.

    Here's my favorite site:

    Reviews of Hotels, Flights and Vacation Rentals - TripAdvisor type in memphis hotels or germantown/memphis hotels and you will find a list. They will also find discount rates from a number of sources on that site, and great reviews to read.

    I don't think the hotels ever left Memphis. Someone is pulling your leg.

    I would imagine there are large blocks held back by some of the groups with packages that will be released if they don't sell out. Keep looking.

    You can sleep in my tub for $350 if you want.

    Are you trying to tell us Memphis has left the building?

    I booked a room last night at the Comfort Suites near the airport (2575 Thousand Oaks Cove). It's closer than Germantown and seems to be a safe area. I got a room for $76.50/night, nonrefundable rate. It's $90 if you want the right to cancel.

    Might want to double check that. Prepare your angus.

    Best Western Plus Goodman Inn & Suites in Horn Lake, MS is supposedly a 3.5 star joint and is 17 miles (25 minutes) south of Beale Street according to Google Maps. $55 a night with Hotwire.

    I'm a little insulted by your insinuation. I've done my homework, including a good conversation with a former colleague who currently lives just outside Memphis. It's certainly not a lily-white suburb, but it's also not West Memphis. My wife and I aren't afraid of an area that's a little rough around the edges. We've both lived in big cities for years. Read the reviews on TripAdvisor - almost all of the recent ones are very positive. The negative ones mostly gripe about the room quality, not safety. We've always had good experiences with Comfort Suites, and we don't plan on spending much time in the hotel anyway.

    To each his own - but I'd appreciate keeping the juvenile insults to yourself.

    As far as depth goes though, the combination of White, Woodbury, Olaseni, Basabe, and Uthoff is much better than Niang, Ejim, Edozie, Gibson. Not because of the top 2, but because of the next 2 or 3. -DeanVogs
