Typical days inn....clean, functional, just what we expected really. Location close to downtown, walkable in about 10 mins. Staff were nice and friendly and gave us good advice about what to see. Town is great, nice restaurants and bars. Overall a great stay

Great location.
We hadn't booked a hotel for our night's stay in Chattanooga, after travelling a long distance to get there, and we just put in nearest hotel into SatNav.. picked a very good place!
Pool very good.
All night café attached was excellent as there didn't seem to be too many eating places near.
Good wee bar next to it, walking distance to the Irish bar!

Hello Derry,

Thanks so much for visiting with us and leaving us such a nice review. It sounds like you had a wonderful time in Chattanooga. We are centrally located downtown so access is simple and most of all convenient. Assuming you found the Honest Pint it truly is a wonderful little Irish pub in a historic building and so much fun - we agree.

You always have a choice when visiting town and we again thank you for choosing to stay with us. If your travels bring you back thru Tennessee we look forward to welcoming you again.

My boyfriend and I stayed here last weekend. The hotel is older, nothing fancy, but was very clean and budget friendly. There is a shuttle stop right beside the hotel making it very simple to travel around downtown. There's a 24 hour restaurant attached to the hotel called The City Café - if you show your room key you get 10% off. The hotel is also on the same street as the Chattanooga Market - a must do if you've never been!

Motel is clean and quiet. Front desk is helpful. You are near the attractions, best of all you can leave your car at the motel because there is a bus stop in front of the motel that takes you around the town. Guess what, it's free. What more can you ask for.

Thanks so much for taking time to leave such a nice review. We try and provide a quality stay with an extra friendly and helpful staff and it's nice to read when we've succeeded.

Location is close to all downtown activities, and free shuttle is outside front door. Exterior of hotel needs serious pressure washing and painting, but interior was clean, bed and carpet were new and clean, older property that has had some decent upgrades. Good value for the money compared to newer downtown hotels which are often double the cost. City café good breakfast, typical diner food open 24hrs.

Hello Edmund,

Just wanted to thank you for taking time to leave us a review of your recent stay. Just to let you know that we are constantly working to make improvements to exterior and interior based on guest feedback. In August we look forward to new lobby furniture and eventually a full redo of the entrance area.

Days Inn Rivergate is a budget hotel with all of the comforts and perks of a higher rate property in the middle of downtown - we think that's a win win. Thank you for choosing to stay with us. We look forward to welcoming you again soon.

Simple hotel for the price, we only stayed one night for our anniversary. Clean room, strong shower water pressure and very comfy bed. There is a diner attached to the hotel and it was excellent, great pies and omelets.
This hotel is close to downtown and the interstate.

Room Tip: We were next to the pool, but noise really didn't bother us.

This was a great place for us. There was four of us and we still had everything we needed. We were downtown with all the free shuttles stopping right at our parking lot! If you have ever been to this city then you know parking is limited or expensive. Parking is free at this hotel also. Staff were very helpful and curtious. Thank you for a wonderful stay!!
