Exterior is nondescript but inside is very nicely appointed. Very comfortable beds, fridge in room very handy. On the "trolley" line and next to I240. Rooms very quiet, no road noise. Staff very helpful. If there's a large group, go to breakfast early.

We had a layover that night and went to best western for the night. It was great and the staff was really awesome. You got a discount at the restaurants around there Just show your room key. They had a amazing breakfast that morning.

We stayed just three nights. Staff were helpful bed was comfy. Breakfast whilst complimentary was chaotic would suggest you collect and take back to your room as seating was limited. Location not great as you have to rely on taxis to go anywhere. 10$ at least and not always reliable. Trolley bus will run you to Main Street for a... More

Spent 3 nights in Memphis and this hotel was just fine. Not too far from Graceland or downtown. Right of the main road but back far enough not to be too noisy. Hotel itself was quiet to stay in as you didn't here other people through the walls or down the hall like some hotels with "paper thin" walls. Breakfast... More

Such amazing, friendly people. Beautiful breakfast every morning with hilarious and welcoming staff. Comfortable and clean rooms, and parking. Very good price for the location. So quiet despite being close to great places to eat.

It can be a bit of an exercise to find reasonably priced accommodation in a good location with great service and clean, comfortable rooms. This place ticks all these boxes. We found it after visiting Graceland and it is very conveniently located with plenty of secure parking. It's an easy drive to the Peabody or Beale Street for a night... More

This is a good location for the local attractions, staff very friendly & helpful. Price is definitely competitive for the area. Rooms clean, quiet, well-maintained. Breakfast was good, with plenty of variety. Motel isn't large, but it's in a safe area as well as being convenient. Would stay here again, no question.

Great hotel in a good location. (Only around 32 rooms, so it has a boutique hotel feel.) Not a great area to walk around in, but convenient to everywhere, and free parking. Very nice front desk help and a very nice daily breakfast in the lobby. Every employee I met was very accommodating and friendly. I would definitely recommend this... More

The Gen X best western in Memphis is the safest place to stay. Whether with family or alone it is a class above the rest. The staff go out of their way to make you comfortable. The breakfast is included and is plentiful! The beds are so comfortable. I stay there whenever I visit my daughter in Memphis to do... More
