My wife and I needed a hotel in Memphis due to family medical reasons. Other hotels in the area were very expensive and required a parking fee. The Best Western Gen X was competitively priced and located. The hotel was updated. The rooms were inviting and clean and the bed and pillow were comfortable. I would stay here again.

Our daughter had surgery at Methodist University Hospital in Memphis and we stayed at Gen X. When making reservations I was given the medical rate, which was extremely reasonable compared to other places in the area. The Gen X was very clean and everyone we encountered was very accommodating. The hotel is one block from the Medical District. Definitely would...

This hotel is safe, clean and very comfortable. The staff is great and the hotel has an enclosed fence which add to security. The price is great. The complementary breakfast is ok. The lobby and dinning area is small but you can take your food to your room. There are only 32 rooms in this building which is great because...

Check in/out warm and professional. The lady at the desk, on our arrival, was very polite and she's been very usefull when we needed help to use the tv. The hotel is quite large, with rooms located on 4 stores. Our room was on the 4th floor. Everything seemed clean, but the morning we left, we saw a dead cockroach...

Good value: Rooms were large, had a fridge, once the direct TV was up had good channel selection and the Wi-Fi was fast enough. They didn't wow us like a higher end hotels but for their class they compete well. Nice to have free parking. Would be an even better location once the trolley is back in service.

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...

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...

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...

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!
