Ralph & Melissa say "We love our guests and try to make them love us, too!"

 

Melissa,
You, Ralph and your children did a great job. We couldn't have asked for anything better than what ya'll did for us. The food and the rooms were great. Can't wait to see what's new next year. This trip will be on our ride list for years to come.
Thanks very very much.

Hey guys.. just wanted to let you know we had a GREAT time staying at your Inn this week.  It was so quiet and relaxing, exactly what my daughter and I needed.  You guys were so helpful and I really appreciate the amazing directions to Rock Island and back up to Cookeville.  Thanks again.. we can't wait to come stay there again!

Just wanted to send you a note and tell  you that it was refreshing to meet and see your operation and your  success. As you picked up I too am a Proud  American as well as All members of my family. I am vowed to do All I/ We can to  help put country back on the path that it needs to be on instead of  the one we are currently on. I noticed that you collect fireman memorabilia and  I guess or suspect that you either was or still are a fireman as well. In our brief meeting and getting acquainted I know we come from the same
stock and have a kindred spirit . I am going to tell all of my former Guard buddies  still serving as well as those who have retired like my self of you and your establishment so as they too can come and patronize a TRUE AMERICAN BUSINESS  & FAMILY !! The
numbers are MANY ! When I find our uniform patches we used before  going out of business  for our security guard uniforms I am going to send  you a couple to display along your tribute wall if you choose to do so. Thank  you for all you do and I appreciate true hard working Americans like your self and family. I see the caliber and the direction of your aim I believe that it is the same as ours.
I know and feel in my heart that all of the Harmon family has the samemoral values and we are looking forward to our next visit even more so because of you All.

My wife and I stayed with you guys this past weekend and would like to say thank you! After reading all of the reviews for The Way Inn, to stay with you was an easy decision to make. It's not very often that you see people do things that are over and beyond the call of duty to make people happy. We found that here. We cant wait to see you guys again this time we will bring reinforcements.

Thanks again!

I was recently a guest at your hotel, let me tell you this is the best hotel I have ever stayed at. I travel a lot with my job and stay at many hotels and  yours is the best by far, It felt like I never left home, your hospitality compares to none. The breakfast was good down home cooking the way I like it, the  rooms were clean and I could actually sleep in the beds. You are the nicest  people I have ever met at a hotel. I can't wait to come back!!

Thank You

Melissa, I have read the testimonials on your webpage and love them all. I too have a testimonial but it is unlike all the others and it seems crazy that I called to tell you about it, much less write an e-mail, but it is so true and to me utterly amazing. We passed by your establishment on our way home from four days at Fall Creek Falls Inn and needed to fill up with gas for the trip home to Mississippi. Well, when Ralph told me that I was going to get the best gas mileage from your gas, I thought "Well how much better can I get, I got 35 miles per gallon on the way up". However, to my amazement I got all the way to Meridian, MS on one tank of gas (that's 10 gallons by the way)  meaning I got 41 mpg. Therefore, you have the purest and best gas that I have ever used. I wish we had known about your Inn before we made reservations at the State Park Inn. The pictures and the testimonials make it sound fantastic. The kind treatment and good humor received when we stopped for gas were a cut above. I look forward to staying at "The Way Inn" the next time we come that way. God bless you all.

Thank you so much for the great hospitality, room and food. Your whole family treated us like we were part of the family. We got special treatment and it was so reasonable in price. Can't wait to come back and have another Philly Cheese Sandwich, it was the best. So much food, so little price.

See you soon!

New “life-long friends”:  “Hi Ralph and Melissa:  We made it home safely around 10:00 P.M., and just wanted to drop a line to thank you so much for making us feel so welcome in Spencer.  I know now that God meant for us to meet there at the exact appointed time that we met.  You guys are truly Children of God.   We love you and cannot wait to come back and spend time with our life-long friends.  Take care and we will pray for your continued success at The Way Inn.

Sincerely, Dill, Linda (and of course Kiara)

Oh, Kiara was so happy to get her goody bag and she said thank you very much.  It kept her occupied for hours.  Linda”

Skeptical:  “Just wanted you to know just how much we really enjoyed this past weekend.  Your friendly and courteous service will definitely bring us back.

We appreciate your hospitality and look forward to seeing you again soon ….

To be honest, when we first got the recommendation from the park, then drove by we could not help but think that here was a little motel that probably got rented by the hour; how wrong we were and I’ll never make assumptions again.  Hopefully we have gained friends and believe me we will recommend you to all of our friends and family.

Thanks for helping make this weekend very memorable…  Austin and Rhonda M_”

Now regulars:  “My name is Laura G_.  My family (husband and 3 children) and I had the pleasure of staying in your motel.  Not only was the room impeccably clean, the staff was amazing!  In every way imaginable, every employee went above and beyond the call of duty.

Every year, we spend at least 2 weekends at FCF state park, always at the FCF Inn.  We have been so impressed by our experience here that we will DEFINITELY be regulars at The Way Inn from this point on.

Our deepest thanks for your kindness and consideration.  You’ll be seeing us in the very near future.  Sincerely, Laura R. G_”

Just wanted to drop you a line and say thank you from the Nor'Easter Motorcycle Riding Club. We stayed with you October 14th and 15th. Your staff went above and beyond to make sure we had a comfortable, enjoyable stay. Every aspect of our stay far exceeded our expectations. The rooms were large and clean, the staff incredibly friendly and helpful. The fire rings were great, as was the food in the café. Can't tell you how much we appreciate you opening up Sunday morning so we could have breakfast. That kind of quality service is something that is getting harder and harder to find. I've already seen numerous posts on our message board about our trip, and all have mentioned how great the stay at your place was. Already there are talks about a return trip this spring, and we'll be sure we stay with you again if you'll have us.

Thanks again, and I wish you continued success as you continue to improve the hotel. Ryan "Longhaul" Y.

I just wanted to write you a note and let you know we had a wonderful time staying there this weekend. You, your husband and staff did a wonderful job of making us feel at home. We are already planning a trip back up there in the spring. This time we hope to stay a little longer. Thanks again!! Jinx B.

We just wanted to drop y'all a note to let you know how much we enjoyed our visit to your inn. It was truly an unexpected wonderful experience, one we will definitely repeat!!!! Hopefully, after Christmas (this time we'll make reservations). We felt more like friends at home, than just patrons. Good luck and continued success!

Hi,
My name is Kathryn M. I am one of the Southern Cruisers that stayed at your inn last month. I just wanted to say thank you for all that you did to make us feel welcome. We do these kinds of trips and when we find a place we like we try and go there twice a year. We enjoyed the bonfire, the dinner, and the breakfast. You were a very gracious host and we really appreciated it.
Thanks again,
Kathryn

Ralph, Melissa, and Girls,
We were very happy that we found you and your establishment. It was great to see and visit you. Our visit albeit soo short, was most pleasurable. Our only regret was that we had just had lunch prior to arriving, we will not make that mistake again. It is obvious that much work has been done preparing the INN for customers and I'm glad that the work has paid off well. We pray that the success will continue right on through the coming months and years. The atmosphere you present to all who enter the door is positive and will guarantee much success in the future. Thanks for the warm and gracious welcome to these old folks from Conns Creek Road.
God Bless,
Gil and Joyce W.

Hi Ralph,
Nice to hear from you again! We are now back in Florida and we really enjoyed the stay at your motel. The hospitality shown by you and your family was wonderful. We did not feel like regular motel guests, instead we felt like we were with family. I will surely recommend your motel to all my friends and we will be visiting again in about 3-6 months. Thanks again for making us feel at home!

Just wanted to write to say hello and tell you all how enjoyable our stay was! The rooms were so spacious and clean! At first we were disappointed when we went to the Inn in Fall Creek Falls, and had no reservations. We thought we booked them there, but found out we had booked them with you all. Once we got to The Way Inn, we were very pleased with the southern hospitality and friendly service, along with the quality of everything we encountered. (Food, rooms, service!) We will definitely be back and definitely know we are staying with you all next time! Thanks again! Can you please email me the availability for this weekend? Friday and Saturday possibly. 2 Adults.

Thanks and hope to see you soon!!!

Dana and I made it back to Franklin, much to our reluctance! It's always tough leaving when you are having a great time, which we did. Thank you for the GREAT hospitality, lodging, and feeding us. You both made our weekend get away a more memorable and enjoyable trip. Service and friendship come from a good and caring heart which you both are endowed with. God bless you and your family and we hope to see you sooner  than later.

Thanks again.
Dale and Dana W.

All of us from the 412 Chapter of the Southern Cruisers Riding Club wanted to drop you a note to just say, "WOW!!!." You guys are absolutely the best. We make a lot of trips all over the country and you and your whole family are absolutely the most delightful hosts we have ever had. You made us feel like you were happy to see us and did everything possible to make our stay comfortable and fun. Usually, if you try hard enough, you can find at least one negative about a trip, but our weekend with you guys was perfect!! You even gave us great weather. The spaghetti dinner was so nice after a hard day of riding and what better way to start your day than a good old-fashioned breakfast. We loved it and can't wait to come back with our group again next year. Thanks again!!!

Ralph and Melissa, you SO get it! There is no way we could thank you enough for all you did for us when we were `homeless' in Tennessee. We truly appreciate all y'all did for us and consider our time at The Way Inn as one of our most special memories of our trip. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I hope you enjoy the Louisiana goodies in this box. Ralph, I know you said you like coffee - do you think you could drink it out of an LSU mug? Melissa, the Louisiana ornament was made by my sister - she is quite crafty and talented. If y'all ever can get away and come down to 'cajun country', please let us return your hospitality! In the meantime, enjoy some of our Louisiana foods. I hope y'all will enjoy them!

You and your family will remain in our prayers.

Love,
Dave and Kevin P

I wanted to pass along my sincerest thanks. Our stay was just wonderful and you provided outstanding service to us. I plan on returning next year around the same time and I will without a doubt choose to stay at ' The Way Inn '.

To your family I wish for you happy holidays and a healthy new year with continued success and prosperity for you and your family.

Respectfully

I haven't done this before but after staying at your place i thought i would let you know how much my family and myself enjoyed our visit with you during Labor Day weekend.  I decided at the last minute to try and find a place that wasn't to far from home but far enough and i found The Way Inn. The rooms were nice the staff was very friendly everyone made us feel so welcome, like we were the only ones there and trust me we weren't. The food was great and so reasonable, on our next visit I'm not going to bother bringing any (something i have always done when traveling with children)  you are close to the park, which made it great for us to go do things there and come back and unwind.  Thank you for making my holiday weekend a great one and we are already trying to figure out when we can get back there.....thanks Kim C.

Ralph, Melissa and Family,
I hate that we didn't get to say goodbye but we didn't want to disturb you. We truly enjoyed our stay with you. You have a great place and we all loved. Everyone was so glad that I found out. Your truly good people, which is so rare to find these days. You know how to treat your customers, so I am sure you will have many, many years of continued success. We certainly hope so because we would like to come back for a visit. And your animal lovers so that puts you at the top of my list.

Thanks again and hope to see you again in the not so distant future.

Kelly and Tim W.

P.S. Give Roscoe a kiss for me, he was so cute!!!
