My wife and I just ended a 2 week trip out to colorado and new mexico. We stayed the majority of nights in the Best Westerns across the country. As of 4 years ago, which was our last trip out west, they have improved their quality 1000%. We will stay at Best Westerns from now on if one is available,...

Best Western Plus Gen X Inn was easy to find. Our room and bathroom were clean and comfortable. Breakfast included a variety of foods: waffles, yogurt, cereals, eggs, juice and good coffee. It was a quiet location; easy to find the venues we wanted to visit.

We made reservations here for opening weekend of Memphis in May. When we checked in, the lady that helped us was very nice and knowledgeable, the lady that worked the late afternoon shift was friendly and helped us get a cab so we could take off to the weekend festivities. The rooms were very nice, clean and modern-looking. We were...

Second time staying at the Gen X and have to say it's one of my favorite hotels! Such polite and friendly staff who are at the top of their game with travelers' satisfaction!! Rooms are VERY clean and love that the sink is outside of the bathroom! Silly little thing to mention, but it makes getting ready with 2 people...

We stayed here for one night on our way to Missouri. The bed was very comfortable, room was clean. The breakfast is typical of a Best Western. Eggs and sausage aren't great but are okay. Plenty of other things to eat...fruit, yogurt, biscuits and gravy, waffles, pastries, juice, etc. Overall very good. A taxi ride to Beale St is around...

Rooms are clean and comfortable but bathroom is on the small side. Breakfast was a bit naff with the choice and barely enough seating for 10. The receptionist on duty was fairly moody and more interested in smoking her fags rather than being polite and friendly. Best way to get around town is to either drive or uber.

This is an older building that has been updated with clean, comfortable rooms. It is conveniently located just off I-55, near downtown. I thought that perhaps it would be a bit noisy, being close to the highway, but it was very quiet. The staff is friendly and helpful, and Shaquille was the desk attendant on duty when we checked in...

Great looking modern room, with fridge and coffee maker. Comfortable bed, nice bedding. The only disappointment was that they advertise that the they are "right on the trolley line". Which is true, but the trolley has not been functional for well over a year according to employees.. This was a big reason we chosethis hotel.

This trip to Nashville & Memphis celebrated a milestone birthday for my husband. Our hotel room was clean & comfortable, also quiet which is important for a light sleeper such as myself. We enjoyed the hot breakfast each morning.

Staying in Memphis for an event downtown can be a challenge - do you pay for a nice hotel, only to pay more for parking each day? Or, find a nice hotel just a few miles from the heart of Memphis, and talk a long walk or call for a ride? I chose the latter. This hotel, first of all,...
