I stayed here one night in July with my 11 year old daughter. Hotel says they are not kid friendly but other kids were staying too and I think they just can't handle the needs of smaller children. We chose the Pullman Room (205) for the double bunk beds. The room is exactly how small it looks in the online... More

There were some really good things about Iron Horse Station as a place to spend the evening. Check in was a breeze and the woman at the desk was very helpful. The bed was very comfortable. The exterior was nice and funky. Hot Springs itself was a perfectly nice place and I really enjoyed walking around and seeing the town,... More

Thank you for bringing some things to my attention and I do apologize for not meeting your expectations. The Inn was built back in the late 1890's and we do appreciate when our customers take the time to let us know when something needs attention. I just personally replaced the toilet seat and you are correct that there are 4... More

Unfortunately I had a bad ankle at the time of our stay so it was painful to go up and down the stairs(no elevator). Room was clean, bed was comfortable. Trains going thru town right below our window added ambience to our stay esp @ 3 am. Did not miss not having a TV. Room was small. Staff was super... More

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
