If you want a dormitory style hotel for an overnight stay, then the Best Western Gen X Inn might not bother you the way it did my family. But when you see in your room threadbare carpet, crooked mirrors, inadequate bathroom lighting, very narrow hallways and a general lack of cleanliness, then it's time to look for another hotel.

We spent two nights here. We received a warm welcome at the front desk even though we checked in early. This is a new hotel and the facilities are therefore modern and good. Large room with comfortable high bed. Breakfast was fine though staff member was grumpy when asked to replenish coffee and milk on day 2. You need to... More

We arrived late and only encountered the fron desk staffm who was very friendly. The room was large, clean and appeared to have been recently updated. The quality and cleanliness of the breakfast buffet was good, but the selection was a bit limited.

Very nice hotel and a good area to reach everything. Clean and well maintained with helpful staff with suggesting places to eat or go. Will be back at this hotel when I visit Memphis in the near future.

The property was a good value if your destination was Beale St. If traveling with kids You might want skip it. No pool. The room was clean and comfortable. The staff was awesome. No restaurant in immediate vicinity, but they can recommend some great places that will deliver.

The staff was very friendly. Really nice to get internet and breakfast in the rate. Clean, small, intimate. offered additional services like business center, newspaper,and informed staff. I'd definitely stay here again. And convenient to Beale St. I actually walked from there to the hotel when I missed the trolley. Bed super comfortable.

In a good location, less than 2 mile ride to downtown. Trolley is shown in picture in front of hotel but does not run, at least not while we were there. Neighborhood a little creepy and not safe to walk at nite. Didn't see anything very close by to walk to get anything to eat. Hotel is decent and clean.... More

This hotel was one of five on our vacation and lived up to the standards of the others. Staff were really friendly and helpful, the room was comfortable and clean, and breakfast selection was good. We had no problem with the lack of a pool - temperatures in the high 90's made it too dodgy for the sensitive skins of... More
