Based on the other reviews, I was very upset when I pricelined and found out the "Chattanooga Poo Poo" as someone else posted was my destination. My intention is to give just the facts and be fair in my opinion, not to pick this place apart. We stayed in building 2 which to my surprise was not as horrible as other reviews. We intended to write our review as the revolving door hotel..check in check out. We booked a three night stay. Beware if you use priceline they WILL NOT let you out of your reservation. Not even if the hotel imposes medical conditions. Upon inspection of the room we did not find any bugs. The had decorative photos of locomotives on the walls. A nice metal leg table. There was no unpleasant odor in the room initially, no leftovers from other guests ect. I did notice an indention in the wall, but it did not appear to be rotting, it seemed like it had been more of a shoddy repair then wallpapered over. We purchased a pack and play for our toddler, just so he would have a clean place to be. There was a horrible smell twice in our room like sewage, also smelled this all the time in their parking lot, and once at the Aquarium. Sidewalks smelled, in need of pressure washing. "Balcony rooftop" outside the sliding glass door gross. The third night made our barely bareable stay turn horrible quick. We arrived to find our beds made, linens changed, a STRONG airfreshner smell in the room, and my children's p.j.'s folded with their travel pillows, and toys arranged. Kudos to housekeeping. They also cleaned and replinished towels neatly. After bathing my children we began to put them to bed. Which the beds were already gross and horrible as it was. Threadbare, beverage looking stains ect. As I turned back the bed sheets to put my little one in, MUCH to my horror, there was either dried blood or bloodstains on the sheet. There is no excuse for this in any star hotel. I would like to say that the housekeeping was extremely friendly the entire visit, we often saw them in the hallway and requested items we would need at night, because we did not spend any "daylight" hours at the hotel. They were always very accommodating and never seemed as if we were putting them out. Other than the staff , this is an experience I am glad to leave behind. We enjoyed so many things about Chattanooga, just could have had a better sleep experience. I think with some SERIOUS renovating the Choo Choo could be a real nice place. We really enjoyed the model railroad museum and garden pond on the grounds.
