We stopped in for a quick drink and to check it out. This was our first time going here. Very friendly people. Art attractions were nice. Wait staff at the restaurant were fantastic. My wife has ciliacs disease. I was surprised that they have not only gluten free menue items but also gluten free rolls for their burgers. I cant wait to visit againread more

We sat in the lobby next to the fireplace and chatted with hot drinks. There was no music that day, but it was just a delightful evening. Other people were milling around and talking quite comfortably in small groups.read more

It's a Beautiful place. But I was talking with my son-in-law we just didn't have the wow effect. The food was good but I'm just not used to trying to eat green beans that are crunchy and the other vegetables were really crunchy and we just aren't use to that if they were cooked more thay would taste much better. I'm sorry but I must be honest. But the servers were Top notch. It is a very beautiful place but I dought that I will go back to the Thanksgiving dinner.read more

Nice, comfortable setting. Helpful staff. The historical aspect was just there, barely. If you're interested in easy access to downtown, stay here. If not, then you can find a less expensive locationread more

Very interesting place to visit, gives a good idea of what the past has been looking like. I hope the Downtown area of Greeneville is soon upgraded a bit. It would make the place even better if there are a few more Shops and Restaurants around so that a stroll around the hotel becomes possible.read more

Did not stay at the inn only had dinner but it was a great experience. Not a place for just any night out BUT they have nightly specials some of which are cheaper. The night we went there was a burger special. Most of them were around $10. For dinner my in-laws each had the filet mignon entree price at $34 each and 2 sides which they enjoyed but I don't recall what they were. I had the 24-hour Angus short rib with a planet glaze, with mashed potatoes and bacon Brussels. Had cheap kits menu. My daughter had chicken fingers with honey mustard and fries. Lovely decor, paintings the like.read more

Beautiful Historic Hotel! We did the New Years Eve package! The hotel room was lovely, we had a nice view of the down town area from our room. The rooms could use a little bit of updating but overall still nice. Some suggestions for the New Years Eve activities would be to have the Live music in the Ballroom as the seating area was limited in the Lobby area and more people would enjoy the live music. Everything closed immediately at midnight, most people would enjoy the opportunity to visit and celebrate just a bit longer after ringing in the new year! Dinner provided with the New Year’s Eve package was delicious and provided many options. Breakfast was also included the next day (New Years Day) we were told construction was beginning on the bar and could not order mimosas or bloody Mary’s with our breakfast on New Year’s Day! (It would have been nice to have been able to visit with friends/family and enjoy mimosas on New Year’s Day before checking out. Parking was very limited as the activities were open to everyone, even guests who were not staying at the Hotel. Overall would definitely visit again, but wish a little bit of tweaking could be done for the New Years Eve Activities.read more

We go to the holiday buffets. There is usually a large group that goes. We've always gotten good service and the food has always been awesome. In all the years we've been doing in this, we only had only one meal that wasn't great. I think they were going through a staff change. It can be a little pricey but it's full service and they don't scrimp on the amount of food you eat or the quality. Usually they have shrimp, oysters on the half shell, and smoked salmon for appetizer, home made soup, salad, three meat entrees, sides and dessert. I look forward to going every time and have already made reservations for Christmas. BTW be sure to reserve and do so early. Oh, and don't eat much the morning of the feast!read more

The General Morgan Inn is a unique hotel located at a fascinating historical site, rich with American history. The building was first used as a hotel in 1920, and since then, with only a short period of respite, it has been housing guests in luxury quarters and providing a venue for numerous events in Greeneville. The hotel now captures an antique feel in the rooms while providing modern amenities and comfort. The gorgeous wood furniture and crisp linens in each room, truly sets the tone for a special visit.

 

Historical Significance

The area where the hotel now sits formerly held a tavern popular among locals and overnight visitors alike. The tavern was best known as the Lane House, which was the location of General John Hunt Morgan’s death. Known by many as the Thunderbolt of the Confederacy for his bold plans and raid on Union forces in Kentucky, he met his end by gunshot near the back of the tavern.

Around 20 years later, Colonel John H. Doughty bought the tavern and leveled it, turning the plot of land into the Grand Central Hotel, which stood at four stories high and featured marble in its facade. Mrs. E.J. Brumley was the next owner of the hotel, and she renamed it, Hotel Brumley. In this era, the hotel gained a reputation for its fantastic food and service.

Its lounge and private dining room, The General Morgan Room, stood out among restaurants in Greeneville, Tennessee, for its dedication to customers. When presidential candidate William Jennings Bryan visited the hotel, staff had strawberries shipped over specifically to create a spread that would include his favorite fruit. The hotel operated under this name until 1981, when it closed down.
