I spent a lot of time looking for an I expensive place in Chattanooga that would allow a dog and this is what I found. The reviews said to make sure to get a refurbished room, so we asked for one. And it is nice. No carpet around the bed like most of the redone RRIs, but a lot of other similarities. The marble is darker as in the woodwork. The art is different. We checked in, put our bags in the room and headed over to the Texas Roadhouse next door to use the 10% discount coupon we got at checkin. When we returned to the room, we opened the door just in time to see a cockroach scuttle across the floor. I thought about it for a bit because let's face it, cockroaches are common in the south, but Frank called the desk and we moved to another room. Good move.
The room was mostly okay, but the tub enclosure was moldy around the edges. The ceiling was flaky, but that's not enough to stay away. They are details, however, that may reflect some bigger issues. Like in attention to details.
Just when I thought it was all okay, we turned the lights put and I started hearing scratching sounds. I reprimanded the dog and told him to lie down and stop walking around when I saw that he was lying down and the noise was something else. Never found out what. It got louder and louder, but I couldn't tell where it was coming from; maybe behind the TV, maybe the baseboard heater, maybe even the ceiling. Didn't see any sign of what was making the sound, just the sound itself. I got the dog on the bed since he was starting to be frantic as the scratching increased. Finally I woke an unhappy spouse up and, of course, the sound stopped. He got up and checked around behind the furniture, but saw nothing. The sound did not return, either. I am wondering, since we had an outside room, that it might have been critters outside, scratching around the exterior of the building. Not sure if I would go back.
