We stayed one night on our way south. This is a bit different from the usual BW motel- more of a boutique motel in some ways. Decor was a bit more modern- lime green paint and jazzy carpets. Good fun. In all other respects it offered the same high standards as one expects from BW motels. The room was very... More

We were coming in from 2 different states to be there for my mother's surgery. I had to go back and forth with changes in our plans several times and the staff was extremely accommodating and helpful. It made my situation so much easier to handle. I've been in the hotel industry myself and THIS experience was exactly what I... More

The hotel was clean but the exterior and the halls need some renovation, as they look old. The front desk clerk mentioned we could exit through any door but only enter through the front door, which made us concerned about the safety of the area. The location was very convenient to attend a play at the Orpheum, but I would... More

This is an older property but that is the only negative thing about it. The staff was very friendly. The bed was extremely comfortable, (we didn't want to get up!) Our room was spacious and very clean. Great hot shower and pressure. All for a reasonably price! We would definitely stay here again!

Our room was clean. Staff was very pleasant. The breakfast with excellent coffee. It was the perfect location for attending the Liberty Bowl. It was exactly what we were hoping for and we would stay there again.

Booked the Gen X Inn for one night, passing through Memphis. The cost was very reasonable and the room, while showing some wear, was clean and the bed was very comfortable. The service, from check-in to check-out was excellent and the location is a short Uber ride from Beale Street's music and restaurants. A very pleasant stay.

My husband and I stayed two separate times at this hotel and enjoyed our stay. I loved the fact that it is a small hotel with an excellent and caring staff. The 2 queen bed rooms are much wider than the king rooms and are worth the difference in price. The breakfast is a standard breakfast with great coffee. The... More

My experience was outstanding: making reservation, checking-in, the room, help finding a restaurant, and checking out. Much better than other hotels I have stayed at in Memphis. The hot breakfast was very good, with omelets, waffles but no meat. I plan to stay here when in Memphis.

Took family on a business trip. Hotel is small in stature however it is great. It was very clean and the room was large. Breakfast was standard BW set up Staff very friendly. Parking lot is small but we had no problem finding a spot. Would stay here again. One of the better BWs I have stayed at
