Yes, I went home as I walked into the lobby of The Commodore,
but I had never been there before. My eleven year old granddaughter was with
me, and to put in our true southern words, " She was in HOG-EAVEN "
Made herself at home. Within minutes she knew everyone’s names, but gave
them all her own nickname. Sean was " What's his face Man" & his
wife was "What's his face's 'WOMAN'" ...That just meant she was comfortable
and this young lady is very bashful person. She even got to help with a big
name Nashville star, Lorrie Morgan, when she stopped to eat after a concert
, they let her stand-in as a helper. That is one thing she will never forget,
that or the big custom made chocolate shake Sean brought and served her in our
room, to thank her for her hard work. Room was great, people were better than
you'll find anywhere. Food was just almost TOO good. We stayed from June 23
till June 29 , 2008..
Wish I was there now ,flopped out on the bed , watching TV while they clean,
cook , and babied me ,JUST LIKE MAMA USED TO DO. Talked to granddaughter last
night and she ask if we could spend Christmas at The Commodore. There's 22 of
us age 66 to 2 ,what do you think ??
Hope to see you soon..

What a fascinating place to be! We will be back again…By far the
best Café to shine its light on Perry County…ever! The
experience was fantastic, with a surprise around every corner. What is next?
You have a calm, warm, wonderful atmosphere. The food was fantastic and service
was great. Thank you!
I just wanted to express my gratitude
for the great service and welcoming for my team and I last weekend for Rally
Tennessee. We are very appreciative of the kind and open arms as well as the
hospitality that you and your staff gave the entire weekend-- its not everywhere
we find these accommodations. The rooms were cozy, the cafe food downstairs
was excellently prepared and the your staff was extremely pleasant. Our team
all were in agreement that this experience was unparalleled by any that we
previously had, which means a lot considering we have been all around the
country to rallies. Once again, a big thank you to you and your staff for
such a great weekend!!!
I just wanted to say ‘Thanks’ for the experience we had at
your hotel a few weeks ago. We were in Linden to visit family, and were glad
just to find a room so convenient to their location. What really surprised
and delighted us was the first rate quality of the hotel and rooms, and the
warm hospitality showed by everyone on your staff. I have stayed in fancy
places in big cities, and they don’t have anything on you. We will definitely
We enjoyed the ambience of the hotel the nights we spent there. It is
amazing how you have renovated the old Staley Hotel into the beautiful Commodore
Hotel. We enjoyed fine dining along with the chamber music. The chef did an
excellent job preparing the food and we wish that we lived closer so we could
dine there more often. We will make the Commodore Hotel our headquarters when

I want to let you all know how much we
enjoyed our stay with you on June 14 & 15th. We are planning to return
at some point and have been telling everyone how much we enjoyed the atmosphere.
Thanks for everything!

This is Richard and Veronica from South Dakota. Just needed to drop you
good people a line to tell you how much we enjoyed our stay. The Panama Red
was great- strong black coffee the way it should be. It was quiet, well-appointed
and the temperature was just right. Breakfast was outstanding. Hope to visit
you folks again- it's where we will stay when visiting our folks in Perry

Mike- It was nice meeting you and your wife and Sean and
his wife. Your hotel and restaurant certainly brings some class to Perry County.
While Perry Countians are pretty well known for their home-cooked meals, your
nice addition of superb dining should help increase the tourist business to
Perry County along with cultivating an acquired taste in many. Because your
blackberry cobbler was so tasty, I went back today for a full meal. I understand
that my sister Barbara has spoken with you to have the family reunion in Linden
at your hotel. That should fill it up for hopefully a weekend. I don't know
if we can book for one of your music weekends but that would be great. Are you
taking reservations yet and are the weekends for next June taken yet? Linden
is our homebase and we have not been able to return for many years since everyone
had moved away and there were no hotels in Linden. Thanks for changing that
and we certainly are praying for your success. Take care and stay with it.
I am writing you this message from the road. I am sitting in the Hyatt Regency
in Columbus, Ohio, eating a pizza from Papa Johns. I am recalling the lovely
time we had at the Commodore. My Mom and Dad truly enjoyed their stay in your
charming southern inn. The dinner on Friday night was absolutely wonderful.
The food the service and the evening's entertainment of authentic Blue Grass,
Words can hardly describe it. It just doesn't get much better. I spend close
to 180 days a year on the road staying at a variety of hotels. I would like
to say thanks and to you and your staff . You should be commended. The feeling
one gets when either dinning in your Cafe or staying at your Hotel, is as
close to the feeling one gets at home. So as I sit here in my 20 story hotel,
I am longing for some true southern hospitality and a piece of Sean's apple
