    Cool concept but really not user friendly. Finding it hard to figure out trip.

    • SueJo

      I’ve had the same issue.

    We used to do Amtrak all the time and had some fun trips. Just be sure to do more research before you book to determine if this will be something you actually like. The roommettes are certainly better than coach seats but are pretty darn tiny for 2 people. Re: the bathroom, everyone in the sleeper car section shares it (unless something has changed). Just wanted to mention that, since I know a lot of people are understandably worried about germs right now. The full bedrooms have a private bathroom, though the shower is pretty small and thus we always used the shared showers because they are bigger.

      Depends on the train. I’ve taken trips with 2 parts. First part was like what you explained but the second one each roommete had it’s own bathroom

    • Sara

      Viewliner roomettes(single level trains) have a toilet and sink. There is no door or curtain around the toilet. It is open to the rest of the roomette.

      Superliner roomettes(bi-level trains) don’t have a toilet. There is a communal toilet on the upper level in addition to the toilets on the lower level.

      Superliner handicap roomettes do have a toilet and sink. There is a curtain on that side of the roomette. I haven’t seen the Viewliner handicap roomettes.

    Just wanted to add my two cents on Amtrak- I’ve travelled with Amtrak many time including cross country from Arizona to New York.
    Yes, the ticket purchasing process is kind of annoying. I found it easiest (and got the best deals) when splitting my trip into multiple parts. For example, I had to travel through Chicago, which is a major hub. It was way less expensive to buy tickets from Flagstaff to Chicago and then Chicago to Buffalo than it was to buy from Flagstaff to Buffalo. Also if you’re flexible with dates, the prices can vary a lot. Over all the website isn’t the most user friendly and I’d recommend writing down each date/train combo that you try so if you have to start over again you know what you already looked at.
    Superliners do not have private bathrooms in the roomettes. The roomettes are also TINY. I am very petite and traveled with my two kids (then 9 and 1) and we were okay in the roomette but had no room to spare. My 6’3” husband never would have made it two days in that space.
    One thing to keep in mind also is that when you purchase a roomette or a bedroom, meals are included. (Last I checked). That really adds up if you are traveling long distance. And the food is pretty good!
    One more thing- trains require some flexibility. They’re not always on time. It’s such an amazing way to travel though. You get to see parts of the country you don’t see from the road and it’s so much more relaxed than flying. I absolutely love it and can’t wait to travel on Amtrak again!

      Oh awesome! Thanks a bunch for taking the time to share your experience with us! We sure appreciate it!

    • ElleS

      My husband is 6’4” and we rode in the smallest economy room from Houston to Seattle to Montana! . . . and he was comfortable in the economy room bed. After we had kids, we booked the family room which was an awesome size for a family of 4. We love long distance trips on Amtrak! Rode from Houston to Florida to Vermont (in 2010).

    These are super helpful responses! I wouldn’t have known most of these details. My issue with the Amtrak site is how time consuming it is to compare different dates’ prices. On a site like Southwest, you pull up that low fare calendar and in under 10 minutes you can get booked! Hoping that Amtrak will improve their site with enough feedback. I have enjoyed short trips with them and it is less stressful than air travel or highway traffic 🙂

  5. Heather

    I would love to do this but it is def taking way too much of my time trying to figure out the website. So there is absolutely no way to just view without a specific date in mind? UGH

  6. Linda

    I am a seasoned Amtrak traveler, but I hate their website … not user friendly at all. Your best bet is to call Customer Service, and they’ll help you plan a trip. I used to call them around midnight or so – when they have less callers, and thus have a lot more time (and patience) helping you plan your trip.

    I’m somewhat surprised long haul trains (that would have the “bedrooms”) are still running at this time… I remember the first overnight train I took (in Europe) and it was horrible in the roomette thing- which we thought when we booked was the whole room but it ended up we were sharing with strangers- we were all surprised our tickets were for the same cabin- albeit I don’t think they would do that in the USA- (I also got motion sick from lying down and the motion of the train- I don’t believe I would’ve gotten motion sick in one of the regular seats; unfortunately it was a full train to a festival so I couldn’t just go sit in one of the chairs in the regular section… also the cleanliness of the bedding was definitely questionable (albeit again that might just be in Europe or the train company we were on) and the roomette got very hot even though there was air conditioning in the room (the seats def had cooler cabins)- again I imagine in the USA it’s better but who knows

    Many people who travel alone are still taking advantage of this offer for the extra space
