Train cars etc. but they were in very bad shape. should have at least one or two in good shape for people to see

We originally came to hotel in 80's and were sad to see that the property has deteriorated. Train cars rusted and need painting and restoration. Station awning beside cars were full of rotten and flaking paint. No room service was available. Even the flat rooms eventhough clean were showing their age in places. Very sad to see the grand restoration that occured with opening of the Choo Choo so in need of maintenance. The ambiance is sadly gone. We will not be back. What a waste of history. The Bassette's

It’s all good!

Lots of things to do and nice eateries on site. Rooms and mattresses need to be updated.

Lots of history and local flavor here. Located conveniently downtown and close to a number of great restaurants and bars.

I liked the atmosphere and location, but TV did not work. Under renovation, but potentially can be a very good place.

This hotel has great potential. There is a lot being added and it seems a few things were closed because of Covid. The eateries attached that were open are phenomenal. Food and service at Stir and Frothed Monkey were great. The draft car was closed unfortunately. Our room was nice but we had no cable so no tv. We were told this at check in but then when we had to call the front desk because our fridge didnt work the guy explained that they hadn't had cable in weeks! Would have been nice to know or offered a dvd player and movies, chromecast, fire stick.....something! The fridge didn't work but they brought a new one to the room. The pools were closed, they say due to Covid but we are on a two week vacation and every other place we have been has had open pools so that was frustrating. They have an arcade....open lol, but not pools? The new burger place should be another interesting place to eat. We would like to go back to see everything when everything is open and functional.

The room was very spacious and the pool was awesome but best of all was the staff. So friendly and helpful.

The location is on market street, right off the highway. It is easy to get to and you do not have to drive around in a city setting. The hotel itself is from the 70s, but is well maintained and very clean. There are multiple places to eat and drink on the property, and even more within walking distance. It is a short walk to the electric shuttle, so it is a great location and you can get to all of downtown easily.

The property was as it should be with the age of building. We enjoyed our stay.

Great property in a revitalized community. Great on site distillery, games, workout, escape room, etc...

Trains. If you are a lover of all things to do with trains this is the place for you. The restaurant had a wonderful breakfast. There are many other restaurants in the area. Loved it all...

The only issue I had was the guy that checked me in did not activate our keys properly so they would not work. They fixed the issue and gave me a phone number to call in case they did not work again.
