If you want airbnb.com accommodations, I'd suggest downtown or midtown. Stay away from north Memphis, south Memphis and Orange Mound for sure. If you narrow a search, you can give us cross streets and we can give recommendations on safety of the area and attractions/dining.

Stay away from neighborhoods in North and South Memphis since these areas have reports of high crime rates. Beale Street The street is located in Downtown Memphis, and it runs from the Mississippi River to East Street. Not only it’s important due to the city’s history, but it is also important in the history of the blues.
