Dead Elvis XI Recommended Lodging

 

Hotels:  We’ve chosen several hotels that we feel are reasonably priced, are conveniently located, and of good or better quality.  These are not the posh rooms of the more expensive downtown hotels (e.g. Hilton, Sheraton, Peabody) but we feel you’ll be comfortable and secure and save some bucks.

  • Rodeway Inn – 1199 Linden Ave. – a favorite of former rally guests, located close to Downtown, reasonably priced, but trailer parking is tight.  Call 901-726-4171 and mention the Memphis Kings to get a rally price of $79.99 / night for a room with one King bed or two Queen beds.
  • Baymont Inn & Suites – 6020 Shelby Oaks Dr. – 10 miles from Downtown but very close to the Saturday morning venue – Travelocity listing single King bed rooms at $67.  Excellent free trailer parking.
  • Best Western Plus Gen X – 1177 Madison Ave. – close to Downtown, free parking for trailers. They have a block of 10 rooms each with one King bed for a rally price of $105.  You’ll need to reserve by April 1.  Call the hotel directly at 901-692-9136 and mention this scooter rally group rate.  CAUTION: avoid the trolley tracks in front of the hotel on Madison Ave.
  • EconoLodge Downtown – 22 N. Third St. – excellent Downtown location, Travelocity listing single King bed rooms at (TBA.)  Secure hotel parking is $10 / night but a nearby parking lot is $3/ 24 hours.

 

Camping – while DEXI is not a camping rally, for those who wish to camp, Memphis has two excellent state parks:
