Dayton’s Newest Hotel Opens- The Sleep Inn & Suites

The recent completion and opening of Dayton’s newest hotel, The Sleep Inn and Suites, is just another sign that our community is growing. Located in south Dayton at 4450 Rhea County Hwy., the hotel boasts some 21,000 ft.², three floors, and contains all the amenities for a pleasurable and restful night’s stay in Dayton.

The new hotel has 55 rooms in a combination of many types. Room types range from suites, double queen rooms, single king rooms and handicap rooms. There are many amenities offered to guests by the hotel. Some of these include a complementary hot breakfast served daily from 6 am until 10 am, heated indoor pool, fitness center, laundry services, business kiosk, gift shop and free fiber Internet Wi-Fi. In addition having ample parking available, each light pole within the parking lot is equipped with a quad electrical box providing electric service for boats and motor homes.

The hotel is easily accessible and is a convenient drive from nearby I-75 and surrounding cities. In a previous news release with Rhea Review, developer Dennis Van Meter of Van Meter Hotels LLC, stated that the hotel will be a great asset to the community.

Citing that in times past, there has been instances when visitors were in town for a bass fishing tournament were forced to seek lodging out of town because there were no rooms available locally. Fort Bluff Youth Camp frequently holds tournaments bringing in a large number of visitors requiring lodging. If we fail to provide adequate accommodations, then these visitors are forced to look elsewhere. It is terrible to lose this tax revenue.

You’ve got to have amenities such as lodging and restaurants available if you want to attract businesses and tourists to our town, Van Meter stated. The complex development also has space for up to four restaurants. The addition of new restaurants will further enhance the amenities offered to Dayton, Rhea County and it’s visitors.

The hotel has an elegant and friendly atmosphere upon entering. Once it is completely up and running, the hotel should provide jobs for approximately 12 people. The hotel is under the direction of Jamie Brady – Director of Operations, and Nathaniel Eastwood – General Manager. Having been open for a few days, Eastwood says “We are off to a great start and we’re looking forward to serving the community and it’s visitors for many years to come.”.
