It is an 8 hour drive to Chattanooga from New Orleans. The plan wa to go white water rafting in Bryson City, North Carolina on Saturday afternoon another 3 hours from Chattanooga.
Do not drive to Chattanooga after dark. The last leg of our drive was in heavy fog on a mountain road under construction which reduced it to one lane for miles and miles.
We made reservations in advance at Best Western Royal Inn off I-24,
3644 Cummings Hwy, Chattanooga, Tennessee 37419.
They set aside rooms for people traveling with pets. We had liked it before and it was even better this time. It had been upgraded. The beds now had a pillowtop mattress. The showerhead in the bathroom was 8 feet from the floor and the tv remote control had been sanitized and was in a cute slipcover. There was make your own waffles at the free breakfast.
