We have stayed with Bluff View Inn for a few years now and will return. Our only issue is that they use the lowest wattage bulbs possible in the table lamps and the chandeliers always have 2 or 3 out of 5 bulbs burnt out. We encourage people to stay with this group.. Wonderful staff, location in a wonderful city.


Great place to stay!

An old time feel right in downtown Chattanooga. Tons of things to do within walking distance. Maybe a touch expensive but still a great value for the quality and location.


The perfect getaway

This beautiful charming historic home is a step back in the hustle of modern day. Resting right on the river it was a beautiful experience to wake up daily to the local shops, beautiful views and great surrounding area. No need to leave the arts district because of everything readily available to you, but if you did want to wonder you could walk almost anywhere. The attention to details in each room is truest spectacular and much appreciated for the charm each room has.


A view to remember

We stayed at Bluff View Inn, in Chattanooga, Tn. Our room was beyond fantastic but the balcony view was supreme. A great view of the Tn. River and city lights made a memorable experience. We were able to walk downstairs to Bluff Inn Cafe and have a delightful meal. Our trip to Chattanooga was made very special by our stay at the Inn.


Spring Break Getaway

4.8 on April 14, 2018

My wife and I wanted to get away for spring break. Our daughter and her husband suggested the Bluff View Inn because they had stayed their previously. We booked a two night stay and were pleasantly surprised! The suite was so beautiful! We loved that we could walk to the Back Inn Cafe and Rembrandts, two of our favorite dining establishments! The Bluff View Inn is close to everything! The art museum is definitely a great place to visit too!

A Stay To Remember

The CW Martin room was exactly as advertised. The patio had a fantastic view of the Tenn. river. Walk down stairs to Backinn Cafe. It was an excellent. At an affordable price. The entire stay was well worth the money. Definitely will do it again.
