Nice updated hotel! Well worth the value. Bathroom has nice new shower. It was overall clean, bathroom could have used a deeper clean but was not dirty by any means. Very happy with this hotel and would stay there again. We missed breakfast Saturday morning because it didnt start till 7 and we had to leave at 630. Otherwise great hotel!

Super clean. Great price. Friendly staff. I would definetly stay again!

Clean, reasonable price, grass area for our little dog to run and do her thing.

Rooms are gorgeous. Right off highway, so car and truck noise was a little loud.

We decided to stay in Chattanooga an additional day, and was trying to minimize expense, so we selected Athena Inn after reading positive reivews. The place was clean. My biggest complaint; there was no inside chain or hook to secure door. There was a place for chain, but chain was missing. Recent renovations may be the reason, but this is critical, especially for older hotels where entry is made directly from parking, without having to enter through a lobby. I scored amenities as ok, only because there were not any, but I knew that going on... for the price it was a comfortable room (other than lack of proper lock).

The property was clean and simple - no litter and well kept.

Very clean barebones place to sleep and shower. Simple breakfast items were nice and free. Great value for passing thru!

The rooms were recently remodeled and clean but sparsely furnished-like Ikea on a budget. The location is stuck in a business area. It is an old building. Breakfast is very average.

This facility suited the purpose that we had for it. However, it was about 96 degrees in it when we walked in from the a/c not on AT ALL so it took a while to cool off but we were freezing when we woke up. Since we came in rather late and ready for showers from our adventures it didn’t help the temperature in the room that the shower water only got as low as 80 degrees. It is a very nice shower but there is no way to take a warm or cool shower, it’s only set on scolding hot. The staff was very nice and the breakfast was what was to be expected for the value of the room. We would stop again for a rest if we were in the area.

The property was well kept and clean. The bed was comfy, the shower was amazing, and they even had a decent breakfast for the VERY reasonable price.

I liked that the rooms were recently remodeled and the girl at the front desk was really nice. We were able to use the printer and computer in the lobby which was another positive addition to the hotel. The shower was absolutely my favorite part of the whole stay. It was amazing. The bed was probably one of the most uncomfortable beds I’ve ever “tried” to sleep in. It was more like a pullout from a couch or something and made noise even with the slightest movement. That did not, however, stop the next door neighbors from seeing just how loud it could be or how much noise it would actually make :/ that is obviously out of anyone’s control but couldn’t be left out. I had some major issues with the bed, not only was it uncomfortable, but the linens were dirty and stained. The top comforter had numerous stains on both sides and in many different spots. Whether it was stained or just never washed (unacceptable) in the first place.... I was beyond grossed out. The pillows were terribly uncomfortable as well with stains on the pillowcases too. Luckily I pack my own linens for this very reason, just rarely ever have to use them. The sheets and comforter were not replaced after housekeeping cleaned the room the first day, instead just put back on the bed. That, to me, is unacceptable for any hotel... anywhere. Yes the price was great and rooms were recently remodeled but that did not make up for the other problems we had. For these reasons, we will never be staying here again.

Pet friendly, tile floors, updated, great for 1 night stay Breakfast was coffee and rolls, just go somewhere else, it was a great budget stay

It was a nice place, great price, Very convenient for all my needs getting around the Choo Choo area to Downtown, Lookout & Signal Mtns as well as out to Knoxville and an entrance to the Great Smokey Mtns NP. Only and hour North of Chattanooga on I-75 Shower was awesome and it was nice and clean. Donald was fantastic up front on the day’s I saw him. I will stay here again.

Rooms and linens were clean; everything in my room seemed new. There was a nice spacious desk and comfortable chair that made getting some work done a lot easier. Very convenient location; lots of stuff within walking distance. This will definitely be my go-to location when I'm in Chattanooga!

Bathroom door was broken and no towels in room. When we alerted staff, they provided towels but did not properly fix the door. Generally an quick and cheap hotel if you are just there to sleep.

The rooms are clean and comfortable and the breakfast convenient.

Very Nice showers. Bed was not very comfortable but overall, a pretty good rating. Heater/air conditioner knobs were not readable.
