We love staying here! Always have a great time! Clean, well taken care of and our room had a huge balcony and amazing view! Love love this place and the area. We have stayed here twice now and will stay again for sure.

Having to make a trip and stopping at my favorite B&B in Chattanooga. You can't go wrong when you stop by for a visit. They are very accommodating and make you feel like you are an old friend. This is my #1 choice in Chattanooga.

We were pleasantly surprised of the Bluff View Inn establishment. We had booked a 2 night stay in the C.G. Martin room as part of our recent USA road trip. As we had to cut our previous stay in Charleston short due to Hurricane Matthew we were most grateful that Bluff View Inn could accommodate us for an extra night...

Family had a few days off for Fall Break, and we decided to stay close to home. Usually, we stay at hotel chains considering there are 5 of us, but we all wanted a little something different this time. We found the Buff View Inn, which is actually not one, but 3 different lovingly restored homes. Most of the rooms...

Staying here was so pleasant that our 2 nights flew by. We were in the C. G. Martin room which has a large balcony overlooking the Tennessee River. The perfect view. Watching the sunrise daily while sipping coffee on our balcony was one of the highlights of our trip. The innkeeper, Kelly, was very kind and helpful. We never wanted...

This was the first time that my wife and I had stayed at a bed and breakfast inn. We have always wanted to try it and are glad we did. Chattanooga is such a fascinating city and a blessed one in my opinion to have so much natural beauty. Bluff Inn is literally on a bluff overlooking the Tennessee River...

Very comfortable, relaxing and quiet historic inn. The location is scenic and away from the 'hub-bub' of the city while at the same time very convenient to many sights and activities. If you are not into walking, even a bit, there are inexpensive options to get quickly off the bluff down into town to use the extensive free shuttle service....

We only stayed two nights, but by the time we left we felt like Bluff View Inn was our home and our neighborhood in Chattanooga. We stayed in one of the less expensive rooms and were completely satisfied. (We also saw a couple of the more expensive ones and they...naturally!...looked even more wonderful.) If you can walk stairs, "our room"...

We've stayed here during two different Christmas periods while visiting relatives in Chattanooga - as a whole, it's charming, but each building has a different character. We prefer The Colonial Revival architectureof the Martin House rather than Victorian architecture of the Thompson House. In all buildings, the bathrooms feel a little cramped, but this is to be expected in an...

Stayed overnight 8/716. Friendly staff, clean remodeled rooms. Had dinner at Tony's at the staffs recommendation phoned for reservations, good thing Tony's was beyond crowded but our table was ready. Rembrandt's is a must for coffee. Already planning another trip to Chattanooga and stay at the Bluff View Inn!
