Description: 

The "Teaberry" hotel where Montgomery Ward Snopes spends a night on Flem's money (79) is probably Faulkner's way of referring to the Peabody, one of the oldest, poshest hotels in Memphis. The text distinguishes it from the "dump" where Clarence Snopes spends the night, and it is not included in the narrative's reference to the "pool rooms and the sort of hotel lobbies" that Clarence patronizes (82).
