We had the jacuzzi room with a king bed and really enjoyed it. No tv was different, but not all that upsetting. This is a quaint place to stay and feels like an escape back in time. This is our second time to eat at the restaurant and the food is FABULOUS!

Not many choices for a sitdown mean in Hot Springs. This is a good option. Never had a bad meal there. A bit pricey at times, but a beautiful space with a hotel as part of its offering. Free wifi, which is good when you're camping and have no service. Highly recommend it.

Right in the middle of town, overlooking the railroad and the hot springs resort is a simple but perfect inn. No phone or TV in room. Reading material available in hall. Wifi free for guests. Comfortable furnishings. A simple place, a perfect place. Highly recommend. Everything in Hot Springs is just outside the door, including the AT. A perfect getaway... More

My wife and I took a quick 2-night getaway to Hot Springs, stayed at the Iron Horse and had a fantastic time. Hot Springs is a beautiful small town in the middle of the mountains with an awesome mix of unique people - some t-shirts there describe the town as "Where Mayberry Meets the Twilight Zone" and it's accurate. The... More

Had dinner with great friends and family. The atmosphere was really nice. Live music was a nice add. Ordered ribeye, twice baked potato, and side salad. Perfectly cooked and tender. Cass was a great waitress. Sweet tea was awesome. Scenic views of the Appalachian mountains were great! Hot springs a neat town.

Our trip was a girl's weekend get-a-way (well Sunday-Tuesday) and our first glimpse of Hot Springs left us thinking one thing....charming! If you're looking for bells and whistles (other than the train) and city night life then this is not the area for you! We, on the other hand were looking exactly for this type of spot, quiet, majestic scenery,... More

Hotel desk agents were very nice! We got to our room to find it very clean! This is a great place for a short stay. However there were 2 things we did not like. 1- the bed is ridiculously noisy with every move! 2-the shower head was so corroded there is not a lot of water pressure. Only needs to... More

Where to start??? It is a throwback in time. The furnishings, the layout, everything - a perfect place to stay. First - it is located above the Iron Horse Restaurant. Even with this - the room is quiet (except for the 3:00 am train). The restaurant is first-rate. The room - spectacular!!! Nice - wooden floors, claw-foot tub, comfortable chairs,... More

We discovered Hot Springs a few years ago and have been coming back ever since. This was our second time staying at the Iron Horse but we always eat at the Restaurant. Hotel and restaurant are very quaint and historic and very clean. There is no TV or Phone in the room but is one in the community areas which... More

Great small town located on French Broad River and Appalachian Trail. The Inn is very nice and has a rustic feel. Free Wifi in rooms. No TVs which was nice. Restaurant is amazing. You can then go right down the street to the hot springs for a soak.
