This place is close to a lot of your area attractions and several food and a walmart are across the street. People that work here are very curteous. The property offers a nice outdoor swimming pool. The nice level is low from outside and the room was nice. Cleanliness is acceptable, for all areas. Breakfast is average to very good.... More

Stayed here over night on our trip to Atlanta. Check in was easy and the host was very courteous. Room was clean and had all amenities needed. I found the bed to be uncomfortable, but pillows were ample and blankets warm. AC worked well. Breakfast wasn't anything to write home about, but there are plenty of options very close.

This Clarion Hotel is located off of I-24,close to a number of restaurants and a new Super Walmart plaza which will soon have a Walmart gas station. The hotel is conveniently located close to Lookout Mountain, Ruby Falls and the Incline (not to be missed). It is only a couple of miles from downtown and the many attractions including the... More

Our family stayed for one night. Pool was open late, even if we didn't take advantage of it. Staff was great, very friendly both at night and in the morning. Breakfast had warm and cold choices. We would definitely stay again as an overnighter.

Thank you for sharing your comments about your stay with us. The room types we have at the hotel are single king size beds or rooms for families that have 2 Queen sized beds in them. I do understand they will seem small if you are used to sleeping on a king at home. We are glad you enjoyed breakfast... More

This hotel is a great choice if someone is planning to visit Lookout Mountain or downtown Chattanooga. Just off of I-24, it is close to a few restaurants and Walmart. The property is very clean and comfortable but does show a few signs of age here and there. Staff couldn't have been friendlier, made me feel welcome during my overnight... More

Every year I organize a week long biking trip for around 20 of my friends. This past week we stayed at the Clarion Inn Lookout Mountain and rode day trips in the area surrounding Chattanooga. First of all, what an incredible city: beautiful setting, great restaurants, wonderful attractions like the art museum, River Bend Music Festival, the Aquarium, etc. It's... More

This was a one night stopover while heading south., so our expectations were not high. Needless to say, this hotel did not meet any of our expectations. The hotel is in need of an update and a deep cleaning. The hallways and elevator were stained and filthy. That filth continued on to the room which turned the bottom of my... More

I am not sure why your expectations were low to start with just because it was an overnight stop. Since I do not know when you stayed or what room you were in it is hard for me to try and fix things that were not brought to the attention of the desk. I am sorry you were not happy... More

I gave this hotel a 5 rating because things did not start off well but ended up excellent. We had a room that the air did not work, but, they made it right and was fair and adjusted our rate due to the inconvenience. The rooms are clean and the staff is awesome!

We checked in around 3 and was told the pool was closed for remodeling so our choices were walk to the older looking hotel behind us or drive down the street to another hotel!

I am very sorry we did not have our pool open for you, I do understand how frustrating and inconvenient having to go elsewhere no matter how close it is. I myself was very frustrated with what was supposed to be a less than a week renovation, which went on for 4 weeks because the plasterers kept looking at a... More
