Amazing Stay on the River

5 on May 01, 2017

We had a beautiful room overlooking the river. The location and atmosphere are incredible. We were able to park, and leave our car for the weekend as we were able to walk to everything we wanted to do.


Perfect spot to enjoy Chattanooga

Our room was unexpectedly spacious with fantastic views of the river, sculpture garden, bridges and more. Great location for exploring on foot. We parked the car on arrival and didn't use it. Bluff View owners have really done a nice job developing the arts district and making it a welcoming, active neighborhood. Highly recommended.


Amazing!

We frequently visit Chattanooga and have stayed at various places during our visits. We have now found our magical spot! To relax, eat, walk and visit the best places in Chattanooga, you must stay at the Bluff View Inn. Quiet and private. And by the way, have you been to Rembrandt's? Our favorite place for breakfast or a refreshment break. We will be back again and again to stay at the Bluff View Inn!


Perfect

I have stayed with my husband at this beautiful B&B in the past and this time was bringing a 7 year old granddaughter. She loved the quaint room and gorgeous grounds. The location is within walking distance of everything we wanted to do in town and it was especially nice to be able to walk around at night with the lights on the river and then be right by the room. Meals were fun and it was charming to eat outside on the patios of Tony's and the coffee shop. Check in was easy and thorough, with lots of local information. I really think this is the best deal in Chattanooga.


The perfect romantic get-away.

We absolutely love the Bluff View Inn for our special celebrations (i.e., 40th anniversary). They have everything you need - privacy, beautiful landscaping, spectacular views, easy access to downtown, easy access to walking trails, a bakery (yum!), wonderful historic large rooms, delicious buffet breakfast (love those scones), several restaurant options within easy walking distance, a chocolatier, a pastry kitchen, and a really great staff. Couldn't think of another thing you would need!


Charming B&B

3.6 on April 13, 2017

The staff were extremely polite and courteous. We felt at home. The room had amazing views of the river and bridge. Location is perfect. You are close to all the major sites, restaurants, and shopping. Highly recommended the next time we visit.


Lovely facility

4.8 on April 10, 2017

Bluff View is a wonderful place to stay in Chattanooga. I took a 6 year old granddaughter and she loved it also. The check in is smooth as you are given a map of the property and an explanation of the facility. The room was clean and roomy and charming. We were able to walk to most of the locations we wanted to go. Breakfast was plentiful and tasty and of course there is the wonderful coffee. The value is very good compared to other places to stay downtown. Our next trip to Chattanooga will definitely include a stay at this charming inn.

Very accommodating. Wonderful view from the room and perfect size for two visitors. Everything was very clean and in working order. Great food options only a minute walk from our stay and very close to downtown. Will be coming back hopefully soon. Perfect weekend getaway.
