Dear Becky P Thank you for your review. We are sorry we failed to meet your expectations at dinner, but wanted you to know we did in fact open up sections of the Atrium restaurant to accommodate overflow. We also provided nightly buffets to help expedite any wait times. We do apologize for your wait, but did want you to know we did our best to accommodate your group needs and I am pleased to say the feedback we've received has been mostly complimentary.. We thank you for staying with us and hope we see you back again next year. Sincerely JanMcCormick General Manager

Does this hotel have a hot tub?
it appeared to us as though they pool area had one but it has since been filled in. I have stayed on 2 different floors and neither of our rooms had a tub in them. I would imagine they have rooms with in room Jacuzzis, but I'm uncertain.

Are there mini fridges in all rooms?
Not in our room. We barely had a bathroom. Two people could barely stand in the restroom at once. It was the smallest bathroom I have ever had in a motel.

"the Tennessean next door has an upscale bar and there is a good seafood restraunt across street --"
"Even numbered rooms are quieter."
"Ask if they have a double sink bathroom. That would really help."
"There is a nice view from the higher floors"
