Alternate Hotels

We have spoken to two alternate facilities, both within sight of the Meadowview Conference Center.  We have inspected both hotels today and both of us feel we would be comfortable staying at either facility. 

If you wish to book at one of the alternate facilities, you will make arrangements with the hotel directly.  When booking, request the TENA rate.

The Hampton Inn has a very inviting lobby area and provides a breakfast for guests.  They sell beer at the front desk that may be consumed in your room or the lobby area.  The hotel public areas and the rooms were extremely clean and in good repair.  The pool is an outdoor pool of medium size.  They have a fitness facility as well.  The rate is $ 134.00 per night plus applicable taxes.  There is one restriction and that is they are booked completely starting the night of the 15th so all TENA guests would have to check out on the 15th or before.

The Comfort Inn is right behind the Hampton Inn.  It has an open lobby area with plenty of seating and they provide a breakfast.  Their pool is indoors and is not heated.  They have a small fitness facility.  They do not sell any alcohol on premises but if you bring your own, it may be consumed in your room or in the outdoor gazebo.  The outdoor gazebo is fairly large and would accommodate several.  The rooms were clean.  They in the process of replacing the couches in the rooms and hope to have that done before September.  Their rate is $115 per night plus applicable taxes. 

 

They still have some rooms available through Thursday, Sept 16. If you wish to be removed from the waiting list, please let me know.

BELOW ARE SOME QUESTIONS RECEIVED REGARDING THE HOTEL RESERVATION PROCESS
 

1. Do you have to have an individual email address for each reservation?

No, you do not have to use individual email addresses for each reservation. The reservation confirmation email will be submitted to the email address listed on each form.  i.e. If four reservation forms are submitted using the same email address, four confirmation emails will be sent to the one email address, as provided on each reservation form.

 

2. If someone sends an email at 8:57 am, will there be some kind of message sent back to them letting them know reservations have not opened yet or how will they know to resubmit?

A reply email will be sent to notify you that reservations will not be accepted until 9 am (ET).  I CANNOT GUARANTEE THE RESPONSE TIME FOR DELIVERY OF THE REPLY EMAIL. I cannot control the amount of time needed for your email server to deliver the reply email to your inbox.
