It's a Clarion so if you are expecting five stars you'll be disappointed. It's clean, the staff is friendly and it's in a prime location for Lookout Mountain and less than ten minutes from downtown. I found it via Priceline ($55 a night) so I can't complain. The carpets were being shampooed and cleaned during our stay. We had a... More

The front desk people where very nice. Got our room quick and met our needs. No fridge but at the price it was fine. The beds were clean and comfortable. It's an older hotel but we would stay again. Our room was quite and I would recommend this place if your looking for a goods night rest. Just an added... More

Stayed here 3 nights for a mini-vacation. Minutes from both downtown and Lookout Mountain. Across the street from Walmart, but still a nice quiet area. Slightly older property, but clean. Lots of courteous staff. Breakfast was just enough. Busy hotel with basketball teams when we went, but they were quiet enough. Will stay here again.

We stayed here one night on a business/pleasure trip. The staff was very friendly although front desk was understaffed. There were 8 of us in line with one clerk...and phone calls were answered in their entirety as we waited. Other than this small glitch, this was a very nice experience. We booked using Priceline's Express deals. Very good deal for... More

We stayed here one evening. Staff very friendly, The breakfast had something for everyone, in fact, there was more of an offering than you usually get at other places (chunk cheese, pop tarts, hard boiled eggs).
