If your looking for somewhere clean and cheap staffed by cheerful normal people then this is the place for you. It seems further out than is as is on a main road but just over the bridge are Sun Studios. Receptionist Lynda is very helpful and a constant source of information. She is fast and efficient at juggling many tasks...

We were in town to attend events on Beale Street and found this hotel to be very convenient and reasonably priced. The hospitality was great! Everyone was very friendly and accommodating. I rated it a 5 for this class of hotel. (i.e. its not the Peabody and it's not Motel 6). I would stay here again.

The Best Western Plus Gen X Inn was an absolutely fantastic hotel to stay thanks to Linda and Diana. Linda is a mind of information and this hotel would not be the same without her and she works under a lot of pressure from certain other unreasonable guests.

Great stay at the Gen X. We arrived late and were warmly greeted by Linda and night staff. Friendly helpful staff for entire stay! Clean spacious room, very comfortable beds. Adequate complementary breakfast. Appreciated coffee available all day. Good location. 1/2 hr walk to Beale St or Trolley stop close by.

Went to Memphis to visit some family, and was not happy with the reviews or Google street views of cheaper choices of accommodation available. This was one of the most expensive places in Memphis, but it was worth it. Clean, comfortable, secure. A little hard to find at night, perhaps.

Stayed here for a weekend bday trip and couldn't have asked for a better experience. Of course, we would have loved to stay at the Peabody but this hotel met and exceeded all of our needs! Located only 2 miles from Beale, it was a quick 6 dollar Uber ride to the downtown area so that was very convenient! Overall,...

Very nice and very quiet, comfy contemporary room, despite view of expressway, with a really varied clientele that made for nice breakfast conversations, this smallish hotel was a better choice than I expected. Inside much more stylish than exterior pic. Breakfast better than expected, standard + expanded. REALLY helpful and friendly staff. Bag storage if checking out before heading out...

The Property Manager of this hotel plus two other establishments was very helpful in planning our group trip through the Memphis area. She went above and beyond to help us get into comfortable rooms and great breakfast options. If ever in the Memphis area contact their manager.
