3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Over-Priced by Much. Was not worth the $130.00 they charged!! Breakfast was 2nd rate at best! No Justifiable reason to charge so much for the location. Convenient to Nothing! More hotels on the Main Road that are Just as clean and Much Cheaper!

We preferred to stay away from downtown and this hotel more than met our needs. It's close to I-75 and within easy driving of anything in Chattanooga. The room was clean and contained all the amenities one would need. The breakfast featured hot food and a great breakfast selection. Overall, we were very pleased and will return.

Great staff who are very friendly and helpful! Very comfy room. Everything was perfect except a little mold in the edges of the bathtub. There is a great atmosphere though. Breakfast was great. The pools was smallish but quite nice. Would be great if they would stock more towels next to the pool though because they were always almost out.... More

I stayed at this hotel in June 2014. After finding the hotel, in which I originally had a reservation in Chattanooga, to be unsatisfactory, I found a room at the East Ridge, Holiday Inn available at 10:00pm at a reasonable price. The room was clean and smelled fresh. It was complete with a refrigerator and microwave. The carpet in the... More

When the lobby was musty I should have been tipped off. Room was so musty from mildew and mold that it affected my sinuses and I don't have issues. There were stains on the floor, chairs and linens.

It's a nice hotel. It's clean and staffs are friendly. Breakfast was good with a variety of typical food selections. there was a fancy machine that you can make your own pancake, which was very cool!! The location is very convenience and close to a major highway. It's a little far from the major attractions though.
