We thought it would be a novelty to pay the extra money to stay in one of the coach cars. The car was OK but I think we won over the conventional hotel rooms. The regular hotel parts looks like it was straight out of 1973. Our car was fine, AC worked well but the rest of the bathroom must have been original 1970-ish. The bed was comfortable and the lighting was good. The carpet though was filthy, not just a cleaning but a replacement.
For breakfast, we ate in the main restaurant. The service was not very good. They seemed pretty unorganized. Overall, not a very value. On the plus side, it was right next to free public transportation. When you stay at the Choo, you get to park for free for the day.
