Another great stay at the Bear Inn

5 on April 16, 2018

I always stay at the Bear Inn when I am in the area. I typically stay in the cabins. WiFi is spotty and cell service hit and miss in that area. But the accommodations are very nice.

Nice rest

We've stayed at the Bear Inn several times, always in the same room. The staff is always super friendly and helpful. This last visit was over Thanksgiving weekend so I expect the inn was short staffed but the room wasn't as well cared for as in past times. It was still a great visit and we will return for future stays.

Will visit again!!!

Great rooms. Great people. Loved the restaurant. Awesome food and atmosphere. Way better than a hotel and not expensive food or rooms.

3rd stay at Bear Inn

3.4 on April 05, 2017

This was our third stay here. It is always a welcome feeling returning to Bear Inn. Super comfortable and clean. Staff is all so kind and helpful. This time we were able to eat upstairs. The food was fantastic. One of the best steaks I've ever had. Also, a highlight was the house trio, The Cliftones. What an unexpected delight. Look forward to next stay there.

Excellent value for money.

This is my 2nd stay at Bear Inn. It is conveniently located off the highway. The rooms are always well maintained, clean. And, the highlight is seeing Tim and his 2 dogs. He is so kind and generous with his offers to make your stay as comfortable as possible. It's such a pleasure to stay there. I look forward to my next trip there.

4th anniversary and 4th of July weekend

Thank you to Tim, Heather, Troy and the whole staff at Bear Inn for making our weekend very special! You treated us like royalty! See you all again this weekend. Thanks again!

We have stayed at the Bear Inn 2 times now. We really enjoyed the cabin and the ribeye steaks are the best I think I have ever eaten! They also let us bring our fur babies and after traveling over 400 miles to get there, it sure does feel like home!

A "different' non cookie cutter hotel with a great steak upstairs

Wonderful little resort in a great little town!

The Bear Inn Resort is a great little place. The staff is friendly and the rooms are clean and very comfortable. Much nicer than any commercial hotel. The Backyard Grill upstairs has fantastic food and is a great place to go for a drink and to meet some of the local folks. Highly recommend a visit here. I'll be going back for sure!

Another fantastic stay and more comfortable than a commercial hotel

Friendly as always and great food too. I just happened to be there the night they were throwing a benefits for tornado victims and I have to say that they did an awesome job. Everyone had a wonderful time. My room was comfortable and clean. Even though it wasn't my bed I still slept comfortably. Reasonably priced as well. Definitely recommend the Bear Inn to my friends and anyone else looking for a great place to stay in Clifton, TN!

Backwater Birthday Weekend

My fiancé and I had a fabulous time at Bear Inn. We were upgraded to a cabin and absolutely loved it! The band Backwater performed on Sunday night and was great. Everyone was all smiles and so helpful. We will definitely be back!

Fantastic little getaway place...

I booked a room at the Bear Inn for a school reunion, and Wow was I impressed! So was my 14 year old son. The room was bigger than what I thought it would be, clean and the beds were comfortable. And it was in a perfect location for all the places I needed to be. The bar & grill upstairs was excellent. I had the ribeye steak and my son had the Western Style BBQ burger and wings. Everything cooked perfectly. The staff at the Bear Inn is very friendly and everyone made us feel right at home. This is my first trip to Clifton in 30 years and if I ever need a vacation (which I know I will some time down the road), I'm definitely booking here again.

We stayed in Cabin 5 and loved it! The cabins are separate from the main hotel and back up to a creek. We loved sitting on the porch watching the Bon fire.

Love The Bear Inn

I stayed at the bears inn for three weeks and really enjoyed it. The rooms were very comfortable and the people made you feel right at home. The resturant/ lounge made every evening relaxing and I never had a meal I didn't like this is definatlly a place worth coming back to

Very nice---smelled really good

Only thing that might present a problem is no one around after 7 pm and they don't have blow dryers. Other than that I'm thinking of bringing the family down for a weekend stay!

Our party included 5 adults and 7 children, ages 5-16. The children enjoyed playing behind the inn and around the gazebo. The folks at the inn made us feel very welcome, they even built a fire in the fire pit for us to enjoy at night. The rooms were very clean and smelled so fresh. (not musty like a hotel) Everyone was pleased with our stay! I highly recommend this inn. It was just awesome! :)
