Lodging Still Available, Except At Gen. Morgan

Hotel and motel rooms across the county are largely still open Saturday, despite local anticipation of a huge crowd at the free Band Perry concert downtown on Saturday evening.

However, The General Morgan Inn, located about a block from the concert stage on North Main Street, is completely booked, said General Manager Bob Cantler.

"We shall be full at The General Morgan Inn," Cantler said on Wednesday. "There's an assortment of guests that we have in-house."

While some are saying The Band Perry's entourage is partially responsible for these bookings, Cantler declined to comment.

"I can't confirm [that]," he said. "I can tell you the band will not be staying here."

He did confirm, however, that the concert is directly responsible for the hotel's fully-booked status.

"We're looking forward to having many new friends and folks in downtown Greeneville," he said.

Quality Inn, at 3160 E. Andrew Johnson Hwy., has had a few reservations for the concert.

Front desk clerk Tabitha Starcher said that 19 rooms still remained available for Saturday night as of Wednesday afternoon.

"We're not quite sold out, but we're doing well for that day," she said.

At the nearby Hampton Inn, at 3130 E. Andrew Johnson Hwy., rooms are filling up as normal, but reservations do not seem connected to the concert, General Manager Elaine Cutshall said.

"We're not seeing much. We ask every reservation, 'What's bringing you to town?'" she said.

Only one guest, from Clintwood, Va., has specified that the guest is coming to town for the concert, although more related reservations may be coming in through online sites such as Expedia and Orbitz, Cutshall said.

"We're almost always full, so it's hard for me to tell," she added. "I am very surprised. I expected to get some reservations for [the concert]."

Angie Dickenson, general manager of the Comfort Inn, at 1790 E. Andrew Johnson Hwy., shared the same story.

"I expected more, but we've only made one [reservation for the concert] that I'm aware of," Dickenson said this morning.

Other hotels and motels agreed that the concert had not brought in many -- if any -- reservations as of Wednesday.

These included Days Inn of Greeneville, Greene Villa Motel, 36 Motel, Charray Inn and Suites, and the Andrew Johnson Inn.
