This was a real treat. The train is sparkling and the kids can climb over it. The station has been landscape brilliantly and a great pace to sit and watch the world go by. And there are plenty of them visiting. Font forget to look in on the hotel lobby.

We had fun here. Just reading about the history and seeing the trains etc. It is a great piece of history. Not a huge attraction, but nice, clean, well maintained and very enjoyable. I would go back when I am in Chattanooga again.

Nice and interesting stop. Very friendly staff. We didn't stay for long but had a good look around and it is worth a visit even if you just have a wonder around.

A very cool place to visit for train lovers and those just interested in something to do in a beautiful place. The mountain atmosphere was so nice and fun to do especially this time of year and through the fall.

This is a great place for model railroad enthusiasts! Their model railroad is huge and one of the best I have seen anywhere! We spent over an hour just watching the many trains running over hill and dale, through cities, small towns, through tunnels and over rivers. Nice people - Reasonable prices. There are also full size trains on site,... More

When this place was opened in the 70's, it was grand, but the years have taken a toll. The management has failled to keep up with the times, hotel rooms are poor quality, whole place smells 'old". Not a true picture of what Chattanooga has become over the past 20 years. I understand just this past week that the management... More

You could tell it used to be an old train station. My husband and I enjoy history so this was a lot of fun for us. The grounds inside the station were well maintained and very pretty. Getting to see the train up close was neat. We rode the trolley and we were the only family on it. It was... More

All of the singing servers are professional entertainers, and it makes for a very entertaining evening. We went with my husband's company for a Christmas dinner, and the food was terrific; the entertainment was wonderful; and the ambience was really great. Looking at the old train cars that are actually hotel rooms made us want to go back and stay... More

The old train is parked here behind the old depot, now a hotel, in nicely landscaped little park area. There are quite a few wonderful small unique shops surronding the square.

Three is usually a charm. Not in this case. We wanted to stay in one of the cars. The first room smelled and was uncomfortable warm even at the lowest temperature setting; the next car room also smelled and was very soiled; the third car offered a combination of the first two. We fled to another hotel that was less... More
