This hotel was very nice to stay at. Staff went out of way to be sure that we were happy. Ample parking and close to downtown. Will stay at again when in Memphis. Breakfast is good, has hot things and cold, you can make your own waffles!

This is the worst hotel or should I say motel, because it's definitely operating at a motel level. Bathroom smells, ants in room, horrible breakfast. The pictures are misleading and this hotel is not in walking distance of downtown or any other attractions. Manager Jennifer refused refund

Room: I think this used to be a university residence in its day. As such it has a very dorm like feel to the room. I could be wrong and if so there's no excuse. Needs some updating to be current. Bedding : Comfortable and clean, pillows were fine too Amenities: None! Just a bed for the night. Location :... More

We stayed two nights and visited Beale St. The Gen X is a good place to stay to visit Beale. Taxi was just over $10 and the room was about $125. All of the hotels closer to Beale were at least $200 per night. The Gen X has good, safe parking (Have to worry about that on a motorcycle in... More

The room was comfortable, quiet, and clean. The hotel is located close to the downtown Memphis area. The parking lot is fenced, and there is nothing that directly borders the hotel that raises a safety issue.

This was very close to downtown Memphis and the Memphis Zoo. The room was nice. Had a refrigerator and several pillows and blankets. Comfortable bed and very friendly staff as well as a great price. I also enjoyed the breakfast. Not a ton of different foods to chose from but they were good.

This hotel was definitely the worst of all we stayed at on our trip to the southern states. I can still not believe that I paid more than on other more modern and cleaner places. The sheets were dirty so we left a note for the housekeeper with a few dollars to please change the sheets. They ignored the note... More

Neighborhood was iffy for safety/security so desk clerk advised us to order food in. The hotel is OLD, but clean, but definitely not to the level of accommodations or decor of the normal Best Western Plus. We specifically chose this hotel for this reason, on our route. What a disappointment. Only the actual bed was really nice.
