This is a great hotel! Everyone in Hot Springs is especially friendly so service was brilliant. We went on a trek through the forest and managed to get ourselves very lost, so we missed our soak and dinner reservation. The hotel and restaurant helped us out by arranging for us to have our dinner order late in the restaurant. Overall... More

We love old hotels in charming towns, and this qualifies. Yes, it's very close to the train tracks, which wa s not a problem for us (room 204). Comfortable queen bed. Ceiling fan was great for the weather. My main issue was that the room and bathroom could have been more pleasant with just a little more attention. For instance:... More

This was a charming little hotel that we stayed in for one Saturday night in July. We were in room 206. The room was clean and spacious for this hotel. My only complain about the room was in the bathroom. It was obvious that the bathroom was cleaned, but the shower was really in bad need of having the grout... More

My family and I hiked into Hot Springs on Monday June 30, 2014 and were excited to have made reservations, several weeks in advance; to stay right over the tavern. Our first stop in town was at the Spring Creek Tavern where we enjoyed our meals and drinks like you only can after several days on the trail! After eating... More

Stayed one night while passing through the area. The inn is a delightful restoration of the historic location. The room was clean and had a nice mountain view. Bed very comfortable. The nightly train woke us briefly but fell back to sleep. May be a problem for some. The location is in the center of Hot Springs. Park and walk,... More

We had a room facing the railroad tracks. Room was small but big enough for us and the bed was comfortable. No TV, no refrigerator, no hair dryers, but we knew that when we booked it. The big problem was that it just wasn't clean. The ahower was disgusting. On a different note. .we ate dinner at the restaurant and... More

This inn does have a lot of character and our room was very nice, small but nice. Bring ear plugs unless nothing wakes you from your sleep. Yes the train was very loud at 4am (you are a street's width away from the track) but not only that the air conditioning was very noisy, walls thin and the key drop... More

We spent a single night at the Iron Horse Station, wish it had been longer. We took a room with a jacuzzi tub and a skylight. The bed was wonderfully comfortable and great old wood floors it was a great get away from our busy life, no phone or TV to disturb us. We were able to talk and take... More

Great lunch with a smashing chicken and bean soup, and an even better supper with Blackened Trout. Friendly staff and comfortable setting. Nice place to eat with a craft store one stop away. And parking right out the front door next to the train tracks.

The Iron Horse Inn is in the beautiful small town of Hot Springs, NC. The original building was built in 1865 with an additional building added in 1880. The spaces have been brought up to modern standards, but still have the quaint touches of the past. The innkeeper Beverly is a gem that you will find helpful, friendly and full... More
