TripAdvisor Rating


Bordering Chattanooga is the town of East Ridge that essentially sits at the top of Chattanooga. The La Quinta Inn & Suites in East Ridge assures every hotel perk without the sticker shock.

Standard guestrooms offer a king or two queens that come with a 39-inch flat-screen television, free Wi-Fi, a coffee maker, a mini-fridge, a microwave, and complimentary hot breakfast in the morning. Upgrade to a king or double-queen suite that also have a pullout sofa and an additional flat-screen. A small fitness room, an outdoor pool (seasonal), coin-laundry, and free parking make this hotel a fantastic value.

The property is 13.3-miles to Lookout Mountain (Incline Railway, the steepest passenger rail in the world; cave tour, underground waterfall at Ruby Falls), 8.4-miles to Chattanooga Choo Choo (shopping, museum, hotels), 10.3-miles to the Tennessee Aquarium (a don’t-miss), 11.5-miles to Coolidge Park (with large spray fountains), 10.6-miles to the glass bridge leading to the Hunter Museum of American Art.

Has Really Gone Downhill

by giorgio11

Positives: The Asst. GM managed to get me checked in a couple of hours early and was very helpful, and I appreciate that.

Negatives: Breakfast is free. And that's what it's worth. The gravy one morning (apparently it's powdered eggs, mediocre sausage, and gravy every morning) was actually, I think, thinner than water. How is that even possible?

Negative 2: They have Direct TV. I don't know if it was the rainy and cold November weather or what, but the TV would regularly freeze up and say "searching" for a signal.

Negative 3: I appreciate a clean room, and it was. I also like several cups of coffee in the morning. I left a note to Housekeeping asking for "four regular coffees" (they have those little single-serve thingies) with $5. They left a single regular coffee--again--and took the $5.

Negative 4: I mentioned the continual problem with Direct TV to the two men behind the desk when I checked out. One sort of shrugged and said "I don't know" and he obviously could care less.

I have stayed here two or three times in the past for events across the street at Camp Jordan, but not again. There are a number of other hotels in the area, including Hampton Inn, Fairfield Inn & Suites, and Holiday Inn Express that all seem to have pretty good ratings.

Great service, wonderful staff

We were travelling with two dogs who were welcomed. This hotel was set up ideally with a ground floor wing that seemed made for people with pets. Also, staff were very friendly and competent, arranging to forward a valuable jacket that I had left behind. Well dine La Quinta!
