My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights. The check in process only took a few minutes and was very simple. The attendant was excellent explaining how to get to our building, #2, and where we could catch the free electric shuttle. Our building was obviously old, but it was clean and comfortable. The beds were firm but comfortable... More

We've been looking forward to staying at this hotel for a couple of years now. This place was a complete let down. The rooms were quite boring in decor, no fridge or microwave to offer. The bathroom was disgusting, dusty, and lacking in comfort. Nothing would stay plugged in the outlets, as the plugs for our chargers would just fall... More

This motel has tons of potential, but fell a little short of our expectations. The staff was very friendly and helpful, but the overall cleanliness needs to be ramped up. This property is converted from the old train depot and the architecture is spectacular. Formal gardens are planted where the original tracks were. Even though we saw the gardens in... More

Although this is an older LaQuinta Inn, it has been updated and I found it to be well kept. The bathroom has been cleverly enlarged by tearing down the wall between the bath tub/shower and dressing room making it much larger. A door separates this room from the bed room making it very private.

This was our second trip to the Choo Choo. During this stay we spent the night in one of the train car rooms. This should be your room of choice! The rooms are nicely decorated and very clean. It is a really neat experience. We enjoyed the pool area as well and the heated pool was a relaxing experience. After... More

We enjoyed our stay at this historic hotel. Staff was friendly. Room was CLEAN (almost looked like new rugs in the room), QUIET with comfy beds. We were in Bldg. One which I would request again. Both nights we walked to dinner at two nearby restaurants. Being an older hotel we didn't expect a 5 STAR rated hotel but this... More

The hotel was ok, I knew going in that it was an older hotel, but I did expect a little more for the ratings I've seen. They were doing some renovations also. The hotel room itself was clean compared to everything else, and for the most part that's all I cared about. The elevator in the building I was in... More

The staff was awesome and so willing to help any way they could. Our housekeeper was super. She helped me when my room key quit working. This is a large facility and they had golf carts available to take us places we needed to go on site. Staton House Restaurant has singing servers. Fantastic show and great food and service.... More

This is the third time over the last decade that we've used the ChooChoo as our reunion's host hotel. Everyone enjoyed the amenities from children to seniors. The hotel is always a hit as it's downtown, next to the electric shuttle, has plenty to do onsite & is reasonably priced. The sales staff was a fantastic help in setting up... More

Was especially impressed with several of the staff. A lady named June, one named Pat and one I believe named Imani. Not sure about the last one but she was responsible for my room. Primarily, impressed with the professionalism and courtesy.
