Our family stayed for one night. Pool was open late, even if we didn't take advantage of it. Staff was great, very friendly both at night and in the morning. Breakfast had warm and cold choices. We would definitely stay again as an overnighter.

Thank you for sharing your comments about your stay with us. The room types we have at the hotel are single king size beds or rooms for families that have 2 Queen sized beds in them. I do understand they will seem small if you are used to sleeping on a king at home. We are glad you enjoyed breakfast... More

This hotel is a great choice if someone is planning to visit Lookout Mountain or downtown Chattanooga. Just off of I-24, it is close to a few restaurants and Walmart. The property is very clean and comfortable but does show a few signs of age here and there. Staff couldn't have been friendlier, made me feel welcome during my overnight... More

This was a one night stopover while heading south., so our expectations were not high. Needless to say, this hotel did not meet any of our expectations.

Great hotel! Very nice staff! They gave us directions to help us around town. The hotel very clean. The room had a great view of the Tennessee mountains. It was about 10 minutes from downtown. A Walmart was right across the street which was handy when we needed a few groceries. I would definitely come here again!!!
