Choo Choo
My room and Hotel grounds were very clean but run down. Hotel amenities were closed down. I got an email about that the afternoon before traveling. The area appeared to be in a transformation into a night club and restaurant district with housing and lodging for younger adults. The Choo Choo appeared to be transforming into that direction as well. The history of this facility and all things related to that seem to be an after thought. Much of it is now either gone or in disrepair. The room was clean, small, mostly comfortable but very dated.

Our stay at the Chattanooga Choo Choo
We booked online and thought we were staying on the train. There was a picture of the train. Instead we stayed in a very plain but clean hotel that was very outdated. The bed was extremely uncomfortable. I thought it was over priced for what we paid. The staff at concierge knew nothing about the town and said they did not live in the area. The restaurant Stir was fabulous and outdoor entertainment but it was very disappointing overall.

Old, but still pleasant
Pleasant overnight stay in this old hotel. Restaurants connected to place were well run and took all precautions needed in this pandemic. New bedding!

Exceptional 10.0
enjoyable stay
Very comfortable! Room was large and clean although obviously a structure that has been around awhile. But I prefer character to modern edgy. It was fine. And walkable to restaurants. A minimal fee for parking ($7) unlike a $30 surprise at a popular newer place recently stayed at. All in all quite satisfied.

Easy and fun stay
Unique experience with a convenient location. Surrounded by restaurants in walking distance. Next door to a free electric shuttle service for all of downtown. You're pretty much set. checkin was a breeze.

Hotel was old and outdated. The lobby area and gardens are nice though. Also most of the bars and such on premise were closed.

While it is super cool to stay in a historic inn, it is horribly maintained!! I felt like I was going to get cooties and bedbugs! I did wind up with a couple bug bites but I don’t think they were bed bugs (I pulled the sheets off and checked). It’s gross and would NEVER stay there again

Poor 2.0
False advertisement!! I booked to stay in a train cart but of course, they are still being remodeled. When i ernt last year , i was told the same thing. I'm done trying.
