The Iron Horse is a unique, quaint inn with photos dating back to the 1860s, and is on the second floor above the Iron Horse Restaurant. We stayed in room 214, a small room, but it did have a queen bed and a window with a view of the train tracks and the mountains. The halls are wide with seating...

Had the pleasure of staying at the "Iron Station Hotel and Restaurant" this summer and really enjoyed the accommodation. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. No TV, but we did not go to the mountains to watch TV, we came to get away and enjoy a "quaint" little, friendly mountain town. With the free WiFi we...

Hot Springs is well known for two things - Hikers rolling on and off the Appalachain Trail and of course the Hot Springs. It is a small, quaint town with limited dining options. While all the restaurants bring their own flavor and charm, I think Iron Horse Station has the best food if you are looking for something a bit...

You can hear ever foot step, ever time the people next to you uses the bathroom and flush their commode, and ever word spoken. WiFi is spotty, needs more guest parking, Go early to the restaurant, they ran out some ingredients, for same of their menu items by 8:30pm.

I'm sure this like the Ritz for the weary AT through-hiker who is likely happy to just have a bed, but if you want to get any sleep, don't stay in room 202. I had originally booked an original Pullman room, but foolishly thought booking a Deluxe Room would get me a nice size room and a good night's sleep,...

This is an older building with several rooms to rent upstairs with a restaurant downstairs. Beds were comfortable but be warned that there is a train track directly across the street and trains pass loudly in the middle of the night (at least twice). There was a claw footed tub in our room and there is no tv or phone....

I really wish I had read these reviews before staying here. The way that management interacts with their visitors is exactly the way I see them interacting when guests are commenting and giving constructive criticism of the inn. We came here for a nice weekend to get away and rest and we did not rest at all. The rooms are...

We stayed overnight at the Iron Horse & had dinner in the saloon. This is a gorgeous hotel restored from the 1890s. We loved the pretty, eclectic room but most of all loved eating and drinking in the restaurant that evening. Ken & Bobby really made the night special. It's so rare to see staff doing such a great job...

It's unfortunate that the interesting history and nice service here are overwhelmed by the lack of so many amenities. It would take too long to list all of them in this review. We've never stayed anywhere else that was so lacking in amenities that it became a rip-off. P.S. - the food in the restaurant here is very nice. Stay...
