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.

Stayed the weekend with other couples and really enjoyed this place. The room were nice (we had standard room) with bed, chair and bathroom. Just enough room to spread out. They have a community area over the restaurant with a big screen TV, free coffee and sitting area. Great location to hang out. Parking was convenient, but it was wintertime,... More

We stayed in a Pullman room which was well decorated and very clean. The bed on a scale of 1 to 5 was a 3, but the pillows were good and the water in shower plentiful and hot. You should be aware that the walls are pretty thin and we could hear almost everything that went on in the room... More

The rooms which are decorated like pullman train cars are located above the tavern/restaurant and are very comfortable and accommodating. I have stayed here before, once in the deluxe whirlpool room and once in a standard pullman. While this is not a 5 star hotel, the charm and comfort makes it a great place for a 1 or 2 night...

I came across this hotel several years ago by happenstance while detouring through the mountains to Pigeon Forge, TN. I finally got the chance to spend some time there this past weekend. Much like other reviews, it initially has a bed and breakfast feel to it. It's a historic property with a restaurant downstairs and the guest rooms are upstairs... More

My fiancee and I stayed at this property for a wedding held at the Hot Springs Resort and Spa. We'd never been to Hot Springs before and probably would have never found this quaint little village if it hadn't been for the wedding we were there to attend. The check-in process was seamless, the lady at the desk knew my... More
