Description: 

"Across town from the Holston House" and lower in status (25), the Commercial Hotel seems to be more like a boarding house than a hotel. Besides Boon Hogganbeck, its all-male clientele includes jurors in town for trials and "horse- and mule-traders" (25). In subsequent eras it becomes "the Snopes Hotel," then, for a brief but presumably flamboyant time, a place known to "the police as Little Chicago," and still later as "Mrs. Rouncewell's boarding house," which is apparently what it is still called at the time the story is being told (25-6).
