We stayed at the commodore hotel on august 8th 2021 we stayed in room 11 beds were comfy, the free breakfast was great, the gentleman working there made waffles on a waffle iron if you request one. Cute decor, very clean. Good amenities. We got into the hotel a little bit after closing time at 9 because we were running behind and they stayed open a little after for us so that’s greatly appreciated. Paranormal activity is legit. I was skeptical and didn’t pay attention to claims of ghost activity. However in the middle of the night I was nudged out of my sleep like someone gently grabbing my shoulder, I asked my fiancé if he nudged me in the middle of the night and he said he did not. Still enjoyed my stay though. Would recommend! 👍👍

Such a quaint, beautiful hotel. Property manager was wonderful. Room was spacious and clean. Continental breakfast was delicious with many choices, including waffles made by aforementioned property manager. We brought kayaks and paid for transport, better than any outfitter I’ve used. We will be back on a weekend so we can enjoy the live music and dine in restaurant.

Spent three nights here while attending a family reunion nearby. This part of the world is not a big tourist destination, so decent hotels have traditionally been few and far between. The Commodore is much better than decent: it's a loving rehab of a historic property, with very friendly owners and staff. They took care of our large group with aplomb. Dinner was excellent (although restaurant hours are quite limited) and the Speakeasy was fun. Room was very large and comfortable. Highly recommended if you are anywhere near the area.

We stayed at the Commodore one night while passing through TN. The hotel is clean and our bed was super comfortable. Alex, the innkeeper / bartender and preparer of breakfast was ever so helpful, professional and pleasant.

We stayed at this hotel for a weekend getaway. We arrived on Friday evening checked in and grabbed a table in the restaurant. We ordered appetizers and some drinks and listened to the local musician. In the morning the owner Mike took us 10 miles up river and dropped us off with a tandem kayak. That stretch of river is beautiful and not very crowded, we enjoyed the peaceful environment so much we didn’t even turn our music on. The end of the trip is a landing a short distance from the hotel, Mike had us leave our truck at the landing before taking us up river. We came back to our room cleaned up and enjoyed a steak at the restaurant. The next morning Mike recommended a hike to a panoramic vista overlooking the Tennessee river. The hotel was tastefully restored to a period correct form while adding modern amenities. We will definitely put this on our summer travel list

The Commodore Inn was a wonderful experience near the end of my cycle trip on the Natchez Trace. I would happily return to it on my own. The staff was friendly & helpful. My room was in another building but was massive and well appointed. I had a drink in the bar and wished it was closer to where I live because it could definitely be my regular one. Dinner was excellent with both reasonable serving size at a reasonable price. Live music is available some nights and was a great addition for our evening. Breakfast offered plenty of options and was a great start for our last day of cycling. I definitely hope to return ! While I was on a group trip, I would feel very comfortable staying there on my own.

I had work in the area so needed a place to stay for the night. Since the outside looked cute and quaint, I assumed I would have a unique stay with lots of attention to detail. However, this was a horrible stay! I can deal with no elevator but upon entering my room, I could tell this mattress was OLD! It was not remotely comfortable! There was some sort of left over taco dip in my fridge that was left from a previous guest! Absolutely NO hot water to take a shower! The cable would constantly freeze which made watching tv impossible! WiFi was spotty! The walls are paper thin and there was a child screaming in the next room making it impossible to sleep. And to top this all off - the room was $115 for a night!!!! Like why? I’ve stayed at motels for half the price with a lot less things to complain about. This place had a good rating so I assumed it would be a nice stay - boy was I wrong!!! This should be $45 bucks a night ESPECIALLY on a Wednesday night when there’s literally nothing really in this town anyways. Will not be a guest here again!

Dear Guest, We are truly sorry to hear about your disappointing experience at our establishment. Your comfort and satisfaction are our top priorities, and it appears we missed the mark during your stay. We're surprised about the discomfort you mentioned with our mattress as all our mattresses were replaced this year with brand new ones. We understand that comfort can be subjective, so we will certainly look into this matter. In regards to the hot water, we employ an on-demand system designed to provide consistent hot water to all our guests. Had we been notified about this problem, we could have addressed it promptly. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you. The leftover food in the fridge and issues with the TV and WiFi are deeply concerning to us. These situations should never occur and we are conducting a thorough investigation to prevent such incidents in the future. We're also sorry to hear about the noise disturbance. Our staff is always available to assist and make arrangements to address such concerns. As for the pricing, our rates are competitive and based on a variety of factors. We feel our prices offer good value considering our location, amenities, and services. However, we understand your disappointment given the issues you faced. We value your feedback and hope you will give us the opportunity to make it right. Please contact our manager directly, and we would be happy to discuss how we can improve your experience should you decide to give us another chance. Best regards, Your Hotel Management Team

This is simply an old hotel with very limited staff. Had to look for someone at check in and out. Continental breakfast had no staff. 3 rooms connected to the same heat/air unit and all had to agree on whether it was on heat or air. Was told I was getting a AAA discount. Never got it as the only receipt they would give you was by email and it only had the total charge.

Let me start off with the pros: the room was clean, comfortable and roomy. Which is what is most important for us. The lady at check in was nice, friendly and helpful. The cons: We were disappointed with our stay. Mostly because we thought this place would be a cool little place different from a hotel. We had seen a video on youtube and it looked like a cool little place. In their defense the place is probably a little more hopping on the weekend. We were there on a Tues. But there were at least 6 other guests in the place( about a 10 room inn). The restaurant was not open for dinner and the speakeasy wasnt really opened either. The guy in the evening ( i am not talking late between 6-7) told us he's not a bartender but i will make you a drink if it's easy. Which was fine. I said i see here that it is happy hour until 7. He said 'no, no happy hour with me' . Then he pours a shot after we had to help him find what drinks we drink and hands us a bowl of ice, a club soda can and bottle of water and walks out. He tells us he will be in the other room if we need anything. So I thought since we were the only ones in there and we had to make our own drinks that maybe it was on the house. Then my husband finds him and says he'd like another drink. So we both had another one. My husband said how do we pay for this? Can you charge to the room or credit card. He says he prefers cash and charged $32. Which isnt bad if I was in a regular bar and the bartender made it for me.
So bottom line if you are looking for clean and comfortable this place is fine. If you are looking for an experience, try the weekend.

We slowed down out of Memphis for two nights at the Commodore Hotel & Café in Linden, Tenn. and biked the Natchez Trace Parkway (35 minutes east). Main Street Linden has 19th century sensibilities and the hotel and speakeasy, a boarding house feel. Yet what a delightful place with charming proprietors and friendly staff. Quiet, with a quaint daily list of Linden’s modest activities and places to eat (including the deli bar at the adjacent grocery) and an early hour to roll up the streets, we heartily recommend slowing down and taking in Linden and its Commodore Hotel & Café.

Is Room 1 on first or second floor?

Hi there! Being in a small town, parking is plentiful and safe: on our side street, in the front on Main Street (after 5pm), or in our gravel parking lot behind the building. There are even a few spaces that are captured on the courthouse security cameras (across the street). You may request a room where your vehicle is visible from your room, as well! Please let us know if this answers your question sufficiently. Thank you for contacting us!
