When I ended up with this hotel from a third party site, I have to admit I was really disappointed, if not a little concerned after all the negative reviews I had read. The price was certainly fantastic at less than half the others in the area so I figured it was only for 2 days and I would switch... More

We loved our two night stay at the Choo Choo. We booked through Hotwire and got a really good deal on a room over in hotel 3 which had a patio door that open out to a lovely pool/fountain/jacuzzi area. Take a look at the entrance to the hotel on your way in, its magnificent! The grounds take up 24... More

I got a Groupon rate to stay in one of the refurbished train cars. It costs more than our regular hotel stay but it was to celebrate my husband's birthday and it is a historical hotel. I was a little worried since many of the reviews talked about how rough things were but I was pleasantly surprised. The registration takes... More

Stayed here during a road trip and paid the extra cash for a train room. It was great, if a little scruffy round the edges. It was expensive compared to our 'under $100' normal motel rooms but great to stay in such a historic setting.

We stayed at the Choo Choo in June. It was very busy with sports events. We wondered how that many people would return there. It seriously needs updating. I have heard it will be soon. The halls were very hot with no air condition at all. The room smelled musty, but was pretty clean. We enjoyed the Station House restuarant.... More

My wife and I traveled to Chattanooga for a wedding. We decided to make it a weekend experience since our daughter goes to school in the area. We went on one of the travel sites to reserve a hotel and decided to reserve via a bidding process. That was a mistake! You do not get to see the hotel in... More

Had a great experience on valentines day! The room was clean, and the train experience was awesome. I would recommend this stay to anyone. You must check it out for yourself. Stop by if you are ever down that way.

I have been visiting the Choo Choo for about 25 years. I jut got back from there and am so disappointed in the sharp of the hotel. The current owners have let it run down. The gardens looked nice, but not other things. ALL of the restaurants were closed while I was there except for 1 serving breakfast only. The... More

Thanks for your repeat business. The ownership is not changing; they have owned the Choo Choo for 25 years. We are not doing away with any history, if anything, we are enhancing it. The management team has been here for 13-30 years. The Choo Choo is going through an 8 million dollar renovation, in this process, we have to close... More

When we entered our room it had a odor like a mixture of smoke and must. We were moved to another room. The sink was clogged and the toilet ran constantly. Also the outets in... More
