We stayed here for one night while preparing for a hike. The hotel is unique and the staff couldn't be friendlier, however, the walls are not insulated enough to prevent guests from hearing even normal conversation in adjoining rooms. There was a white noise machine in our room but it was limited in the amount of time it would run... More

We received a gift certificate for a package in Hot Springs for Christmas. For several reasons it was August when we finally took advantage of the trip. What a nice hotel the Iron Horse Station is! The staff were most welcoming, gave us all the information we needed and after that - we did not see them- just the way... More

When we checked in, the mgr wasn't overly happy to have us. The place is fascinating, our room was just OK.- needed cleaning around bottom of shower ( moldy ) and baseboards. Almost stepped on a big cockroach when I got out of bed the next morning. We left immediately. The restaurant was the highpoint. Our server was very personable... More

We stayed here last evening and had a very nice time. I'm not giving an "excellent" rating because the accommodations do fall short in a couple of areas. The wifi didn't work all last evening and there are no TV's. Fortunately, we walked up to the store and bought a DVD to watch on the laptop computer. Also, if the... More

We are technology kind of folks, but this place was so great we didn't even miss the tv. Our room was comfortable with beautiful lighting from the skylights. We lounged in comfort in the upstairs foyer while listening to live music from downstairs. The restaurant was amazing - highly recommend the fried green tomatoes and White Zombie beer! This Inn...

We enjoy the character and personality of historic hotels and inns. We stayed in Room 203 for one evening after enjoying a massage and soak in Hot Springs. The room was spacious and clean with a comfortable king bed. If you stay in this room in the winter, the room may get cold, so be sure to close the shutters... More

Me and my business partner were looking around when we found this place. Hot Springs NC is a hidden gem and to go with it is the Iron Horse Station which has great food....and the atmosphere is incredible as well.
