Room Mailbox Adds New Meetings as Tentative Instead of Accepted

I have been racking my brain trying to find the answer to this issue. I have some Room Mailboxes with NO Delegates and the Resource Booking Attendant checked/enabled & for some reason when sending a mtg request to the Room, a response is sent back to the Organizer as Tentative, causing the potential to double-book timeslots for that Room. If I run the Shell cmd Get-CalendarProcessing RoomMailbox, the AuotmateProcessing parameter shows as being correct (i.e. AutoAccept). There isn't really much to configuring a Room Mailbox, so what is the deal here? I am noticing this on several Room Mailboxes, yet on some others it works fine. Is there a Shell cmd I can run, or somewhere I am overlooking in the EMC that may show why these Rooms will not just Accept a mtg (or Deny if there is a conflict, which I do have configured)? I have noticed this behavior not just on the particular DB the mailbox is on, so it's something more than that. And, since this is happening to a great many a Room Mailbox, I'd rather not receive a potential solution here to delete/recreate the Mailbox :) I think there is probably a way to resolve this that I'm overlooking.
Thank you for your help!
