Stayed in one of the train car rooms, which was very neat, but we could hear the family in the room next door. The room was clean and spacious. Had breakfast in the hotel restaurant, which was ok, but nothing special. Overall, we enjoyed the property and would stay here again.

I have stayed at the Choo Choo probably 50-60 times during the last 10 years. It's the only hotel that has 3 pools and a great perimeter for walking and exploring the history of the former train station. It's current renovation will yield an excellent choice for travelers or a weekend getaway. We stayed in a train car during this... More

This was an overnight stay last November as part of a tour. Out of the hotels that we stayed in on our coach tour this was by far the worst. Room was okay but cold. Never saw any staff as we were in the part of the hotel towards the back. There;s not really a great deal to say except... More

If you've read any other recent reviews, you know about the renovation, and it's desperately needed. However, the room we had in Hotel 3 was large and clean. I rarely comment or rate a place because of the style of artwork or wallpaper pattern, but will say the place looked very much like it did some 35 years ago. Apart... More

Let me count the ways- Room 280 1 - Requested a King Room. Showed on Resevation. Presented and specfically inquired about a King bed during check-in. Confirmed that the room assigned was a king. Nope, room was not. 2. - Difficulty using key card in entrance to building & room. Had to push room door in with shoulder while holding... More

The lobby and many other parts of the hotel are undergoing renovations. The new check-in/front desk area is BEAUTIFUL! The rest will be just as amazing I'm sure. We stayed in a "train Car" room and it was so cool, especially for my 2 little ones. The room was a little outdated, and hopefully it too will receive some upgrades,... More

We had the best time. The staff were all great! The hotel was clean. I have 2 boys & they loved it! The grounds were well maintained. Pools were perfect. The pizza place on the train car was fabulous! We can't wait to go back!

The outside of the hotel is the best part, it's very scenic and romantic feeling. I usually stay here for conventions like Chattacon and Con Nooga. The hotels and rooms are pretty old but they're neat and clean. The only negative I've ever seen is that building one had a leak in their roof but it was in the lobby... More

My husband had never been to the Chattanooga Choo Choo and as we found ourselves with a night without kiddos, we made the short trip to Chattanooga. My husband was so excited about the rail car we stayed in. Everyone was very nice, from check in to the lady getting ready to clean our room when we left. We will... More

We stayed at the Choo Choo while visiting family in August. They are doing extensive room renovations which are desperately needed. Even though, the beds were comfortable and the pool was nice. Just give them some time and it should be back to its old glory.
