Where to stay in Chattanooga?


Shorty

Recommended Posts

I'm planning a family trip to Chattanooga in October and it's been years since I've been out that way.  We tend to like to rent cabins/vrbo since we have small kids so they have room to play.  Is there anywhere /areas I need to avoid looking for a place to stay for a few days?  My wife found a place East of Lookout Mtn. off 58 and St. Elmo Ave.  that looks nice, but I have no idea about the area.  Anybody have any input or better suggestions?

St Elmo wouldn't wouldn't be my first choice if at all. If you like cabins, find one up on the mountain or out on Chickamauga lake.

Does that mean it's a rough area or just that there's nicer areas to stay?  Unfortunately my wife just told me she already booked it, so I'm kinda stuck, but can prepare accordingly.

Historically, that's not the best part of town, but its been a long time since I was in that area.  It is near several of the nicer historic areas, Point Park and Chickamauga Battlefield.

Not really rough per se depending on which part of St Elmo you'll be in but situational awareness is key.

I guess the correct answer to your question is "Wherever your wife tells you you're staying."

But at least it wasn't one of those "Whatever you want, dear." situations where there IS a right answer, and she's not telling. God, I hate those!

St. Elmo has been revitalized, which means at one point, it was devitalized.  Most of the area is OK, but it is within walking distance of not OK areas.

Good to hear, but the walking distance comment applies to basically the entire metro area.
