... golf again at The Ledges and afterwards we went to Pearl Lake for dinner. Pearl Lake is an old gravel pit turned in to a recreational swimming and fishing lake with a campground. When I was a kid, it was THE summer hangout. It was fun to go back again and relive those memories. Amy, Trey, Elsie and Clara who live in Cincinnati, OH stopped by to visit on Saturday morning on their way to Wisconsin to visit Amy's dad and Trey's mom. That was a wonderful ...
Today we got up early and watched St. Louis when we woke up while we packed. I really enjoyed the film but we missed the end so that we could get the matar to the grey hound bus station. Well it's a **** whole! We were there half an hour early to check in but none of the machines were working so the queue was really long. We would definitely have missed our bus in the wait. Lots of people were complaining and getting ignored. I pretended to ...
... Chapel Fort Lauderdale for 20 years we've seen a lot of pastors come and go in the natural ebb and flow of the ministry. Most of the pastoral staff that leave, go to start there own churches elsewhere. Frank Ramseur was one of those young guys we knew from 10 years ago. He and his wife felt called to move to Chattanooga, with no family, friends or personal ties. We were looking forward to visiting Calvary Chapel Chattanooga the next day.
We got here(St. Thomas) with a little divine assistance in that we went to the Chattanooga Airport 2 hours early and my partner complained that we were too early. However, the U.S. Airway said that our 9:40 a.m flight was cancel but we were in time for the next flight that went in just 15 minutes. How you about getting tickets, checking bags and going through all the safety check points and putting back ...
First day of our trip and pinching ourselves. Will be traveling with our longtime friends Ben and Maureen Judkins for the next couple of months. Spent this afternoon exploring bicycle trails and hiking to see the two waterfalls in the park. Took Molly on the hike with us and she loved swimming in the waterfall pool. We would have loved to join her but were not allowed. Heading to Cave City, TN ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Country Inn & Suites by Carlson _ Chattanooga I-24 West
Still a Favorite for a Reason
My 7 year old, my mother and I have stayed at Country Inns before but this location was a first. It was a very pleasant experience as well. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Requested enough towels for the entire stay which was 3 nights for 3 of us-they had supplied plenty while we were out and had made the beds and took out the trash. Maintenance was needed on one occasion and it was handled very promptly and quickly. Cookies were available at the counter and breakfast was available every morning. Requested a non-smoking room by the elevator and not the 1st floor and we had been accomodated when we arrived. Although the room smelled of smoke somewhat and the non smoking sign had been removed from the door, when i inquired to the staff they said it was a non-smoking room but kindly offered another room on a different floor by the elevator if we preferred. Smoking is available on one side of each floor as opposed to smoking on one floor only so the smell could have drifted? The 2 queen suite we requested was the same price as a regular suite and they are nice, clean, pretty and spacious. Rooms do not come with a sink by the microwave though. Downtown Chattanooga and Lookout Mtn attractions are just a few miles away either direction. GREAT SPOT for convenience and some peace and quiet too!!! Rockers are on the front porch if you want to sit outside and look at the mountainside or feel a breeze. I highly recommend ROCK CITY, the pictures and the website info do not do it justice. Country Inns is my choice for a hotel.
Very nice facilities
My family decided to stay a couple nights in Chattanooga rather than doing just a day trip. After checking out a couple of hotels that were very pricey we came across Country Inn. We decided to give it a try. Hotel rooms were very large and there was actually two rooms, living area w/fold out couch w/tv and the bedroom area w/tv. Refrigerator, microwave, coffee pot provided. Hotel had a pool and excercise room. Cont. Breakfast was a big plus as they have a huge selection to choose from! Waffle House/Cracker Barrel/Taco Bell and more within walking distance. All attractions were very close.
The hotel had very friendly staff and was secure. Beautifully decorated as well.
We would definately stay here again and try out other Country Inns.
A very nice stay!
Our family of four returned from a two night stay at this hotel and found the accommodations to be very nice. Easy access to the interstate as well as restaurants (Cracker Barrel, Waffle House and Taco Bell). We would recommend to anyone visiting the Lookout Mountain area.
Great place to stay!
My sweetie and I went to Chattanooga for a weekend get a-way. I searched and searched the internet for nice and affordable place to stay. Finally, I came across Country Inn & Suites. All the reviews that I read were good and figured that this would be one of the better choices. I'm glad that we stayed here. Very nice and clean. I am particular when it comes to hotels, but I was very pleased with the Country. It is only minutes from downtown Chattanooga and very close to Lookout Mountain and Ruby Falls.
Our room was above average in size and clean. We stayed in an Executive King Room. The bed was comfortable. There was a microwave and fridge in the room. The indoor pool was a nice plus. The water was a bit cool, but we got use to it. The lobby was imaculate and the breakfast wasn't that bad. I think it depends on the day that breakfast is served. On Sunday morning, they had the basic breakfast items, plus sausage and biscuits. On Monday morning, they even had scrambled eggs on the menu.
I really felt safe there and would recommend it to anyone. There aren't many restaurants near (only Cracker Barrell and Taco Bell), but like I said downtown is only minutes away. The next exit also had additional restaurants as well.
Can't wait to visit again and stay in one of the two-room suites.
I went to Chattanooga to go to Ruby Falls, and other attractions. If you are looking for a convient place Country Inn and Suites on 24 is great. I took my 15 month old daughter who enjoyed the room where she had her own t.v. to watch cartoons. The only thing that needs work is the indoor pool.
I picked the hotel because my girl loves to swim, but the pool is cold and the air warm. Like being outside. Other than that, very clean and nice. Staff is very helpful.
Country Inn and Suites a nice place for children
Our overnight stay at Country Inn and Suites off 24 was great. We carried our two grandchildren on a back to school trip, rode the incline, went to the aquarium and IMAX (Nascar for our grandson) and rode the train. We arrived very tired after touring and found a wonderful suite with a living area and separate bedroom with a TV in each - also a refrigerator and microwave. Took the kids swimming in the pool and had a great meal at the Cracker Barrell right in front of the hotel. The breakfast at the hotel was great but a little crowded but I think everyone was trying to get one last trip in before school started. I would highly recommend the Country Inn and Suites. Our room was very clean and nice.
We stayed here for 3 nights and truly enjoyed the hotel. Nice, large, clean rooms. The two room suite with 2 tvs is a must for families (no fighting over what to watch). The kids enjoyed the indoor pool. Hotel provided all the extras. The staff was very friendly. Great location. It was close to all the attractions. Very quiet, didn't hear other guests or outdoor noise even though we were on the first floor. We will stay here again next time we visit the area and I would recommend this hotel to others.
For the better part of our trip to the South, we had made reservations in advance. But, for this leg of the trip--after a full day in Atlanta and due in Nashville the following day, we winged it and stayed overnight in Chattanooga. My wife and kids (they've become seasoned travelers) started checking (as we were driving) and found the deal--right here.
Very clean, relatively new property just off the Interstate.
We checked in and the kids were delighted with the suite. A flip of the coin gave the first room, with a TV and a couch-turned bed, to our son.
Our daughter had a bed to herself and my wife and I shared a bed for the only time on the trip (with a second TV on the bureau.)
The continental breakfast was very good--the waffle-maker is always popular.
Two minor points. The water in the indoor swimming pool was quite nippy. Several other people told us they had mentioned the situation to the staff, so we were not alone with that thought.
Also, I had asked (when we checked in) about Internet access. A very nice young woman said while the rooms are wired for it (if people have their own laptops, which we didn't), we might try asking the GM in the morning to use the hotel's computer. A check in the morning (with another clerk) quickly put the kabosh on that thought. I mentioned about a great deal at a LaQuinta in Jackson, MS where a computer was available (in the lounge where the continental breakfast was served) and that it was free for 30 minutes. She seemed non-plussed by that.
Bottom line, I wanted to check my company Email and was essentially given the thumbs down. Not sure what kind of demand there is for such a thing, but us non-laptoppers would be very appreciative, plus it's yet another selling tool for the hotel and (judging by the situation at the LaQuinta in Jackson (Pearl), low-key and not a big deal).
Outside of that, this place is very strong and we'd return again.
Fun family getaway
We drove from IL to TN for Spring break at the end of March 2003 (1 senior, 2 adults and 3 kids). We LOVED the Country Inn and Suites hotel (I-24 West). The staff was friendly, the rooms were clean, the breakfast buffet was great and the front porch area was a nice meeting place. The kids loved climbing on the rocks outside the hotel and the indoor pool was refreshing. We visited all of the touristy places including Ruby Falls (breathtaking), Rock City (so much fun), Lookout Mountain (amazing) and downtown Chattannoga (lots of history, seemed safe). We ate mostly at the Cracker Barrel restaurant (fun, can't go wrong) and my husband and I decided that we love grits! My only regret is that I did not buy a birdhouse from Rock City! Go there with your family! You won't regret it.
Older property but very comfortable. Not right on the ocean but the
higher floor view is very nice. Rooms in need of some renovations but
overall for the money, not a bad place at all.
