Good customer service and quiet part of town, with great inexpensive rates. Good room service. The walls to the rooms where not as sound proof as I preferred that they should be. Plenty of outdoor parking. Helpful staff.

Wasn't sure where to stay in Memphis, needed an extra night on a roadtrip. This was a clean, save and friendly hotel that was very accommodating. Rooms had their own character and the breakfast buffet was just ok. Recommend it to others

Hotel easy to find , gated parking lot. Looks are deceiving , once you enter this inn is clean, and looks newly renovated. Staff very efficient and accommodating. Breakfast standards were provided and the attendant was on top of making sure all was kept up .

We love staying at the Best Western PLUS Gen X Inn. The staff are very cordial, and the room was very clean and comfortable. The furniture is new and very pleasant. The complimentary breakfast was delicious. We will definitely return.

After reading some mixed reviews (mostly regarding safety of the area), I was a bit uncertain about how the experience would be. However, I'm happy to say we had an excellent stay! My family and I were in town for the St. Jude marathon weekend, and booked in July. Although there were not several choices left, for the price, this... More

Traveling to Memphis for the first time and not knowing much about the city, we picked a hotel that was in our budget and seemed to be pretty close to downtown. We really lucked out.

My sisters and I stayed at Best Western Plus Gen X Inn on our trip to Graceland. The service was excellent. The rooms were clean and well maintained. We were within a 15 minute drive of Graceland. The staff was friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this motel.

Hotel is less than two miles from Beale and the arena. We stayed here overnight and saw Eric Church in concert. Arena and Beale are close enough, that one can leave their vehicle at hotel and pay under $10 for cab to and from arena and Beale. Hotel amenities and décor are very good--nice place and cannot beat the price... More

The hotel was clean and the amenities that were provided were satisfactory. The hotel staff were friendly and considerate during my visit. The hotel also has plenty of food delivery options available to it. Great value for a good experience.

This is the poorest standard of hotel we have come across in our 5 week tour of the USA and was the most expensive and we don't know why. The hotel is not within walking distance of anything including eating places and the surrounding area is run-down. Room is grubby, stains on bedding and carpets, and debris in the corners,... More

Let me start by apologizing for your experience at our hotel. Guest satisfaction is very important to us, be assured we will take the correct measures to ensure this does not happen again. yes, there isn't any restaurants right outside our hotel but, a 2 minute drive or a 5 minute walk to union and there is many restaurant choices....
