Guest reviews

  • Family with children

    We loved that their was so many things to do there. We did not have to leave we had so much fun there. We have told all our friends and family about our trip.

  • Older travelers

    It is a historic hotel with beautiful gardens.

  • Older travelers

    Interesting historic site, aundantly restored-- a worthy effort. Good cocktail bar on site.

    A little too cheesey and Disneyesque for a pair of pensioners. Food as calorific as pretty well all of the rest of southern USA.

  • Family with children

    Even though the facility is older, the rooms were very clean and comfortable, the staff was excellent and very helpful and it is right downtown and very close to a lot of Chattanoga's best tourist sites.

    Not a thing.

  • Family with children

    For a lower price we could have stayed at a Day's Inn, Super 8, etc for less and have had better, larger, and more modern rooms. For the charge for the stay I will not be returning.

  • Family with children

    The lobby was beautiful. Everything else was outdated and smelled funny everywhere you went.

    The hotel was 70's outdated decor. Every building we went in had a different gross smell. I would not stay at this hotel again. That is too much money to spend for a discusting room.

  • Family with children

    The experience for my grandchildren was great.

    Cost of one night stay.

  • 5.4

    I had a place to sleep...

    the long walk downtown, the beds, and the thermostat was brutal to get the room temp correct. Woke up with a sore throat because of the freezing temps. Bummer dude!

  • 5.4

    The property was really close to ruby falls. The train cars were nice.

    The first room we had was dreadful and smelled. When we first checked in, I asked if there were any train cars available and I was told the only car available wouldn't fit my party of 3. Once I got to our actual room, I was terribly disappointed. The staff was happy to give me other accommodations. Guess where they put me? In the train car the front desk woman said wouldn't handle my party. The room had a queen bed and two twin beds. What was the issue initially? I found it rather rude and unhelpful. The other staff members were pleasant.

  • 4.2

    The pictures on the site for reservations verses reality is very deceiving! It was very run down. I think it was way to expensive for what we had.

  • 6.6

    Location was convenient and there was plenty of parking, especially since we were attending a show at the Revelry Room. The staff were helpful and friendly.

    Building was outdated and the layout was poorly designed. At some point, hotels are better off demolishing or gutting buildings entirely and starting from scratch. The Choo Choo falls into this category. The bed was uncomfortable and some things were just worn down from years of wear and tear.

  • 5.0

    Was near the bus.

    Wife went to a clinic today with flee bites. We walked through the hall where the show dogs were kept several times. I smelled the dogs in the hallway but had no idea we would come home with flees.

  • 8.8

    the atmosphere was beautiful

    the pillows were awful,i had to go to another floor to get ice cause my floors didnt work,the breakfast dinner had terrible service.

  • 7.0

    The location of the hotel is great. It is in walking or shuttle distance to a lot of downtown attractions. We enjoyed the indoor pool and the grounds were nice to walk around on with our dog.

    I understand that the hotel is going through a lot of renovations. Once the renovations are complete it will be a very great place to stay and well worth the cost. However, it certainly feels overpriced for its current state. The buffet breakfast cost $10/person plus the cost of drinks; it wasn't that great. I've had better free continental breakfasts.

  • 2.4

    Nothing about this stay . Problems from the min. We arrived. Do not consider this place!

    Old rundown, had plumbing problems.tried to overcharge us we went through Booked.net. Very Disatified!!!
