Great location for walking along river and visiting downtown. Staff very friendly and helpful. Beautifully decorated rooms at the Inn. Comfortable bed. Quiet. Several restaurants and eateries within walking distance.

We loved the Inn and the location. Our stay was in the Bryan Room and it was wonderful. All the amenities we could ask for while maintaining the charm of a turn of the century home. The sculpture garden, art gallery and museums were all bonuses. To complete our stay, we had stuffed French toast in the Rembrandt Coffee House....

This is my third stay here. And I am not disappointed. With plenty of walk around the foot bridge. Great restaurants all around. It was a great stop over for few nights. My wife particularly found it fun place to be.

Stayed here without knowing much about it at first. The price is right and the breakfast is more than good. Very reasonable. Sits on the bluff above the river and the views are fantastic. It is part of a complex that has converted three old mansions into B&B's. Three restaurants also reside on the bluff and seating is out over...

Convenient for free parking and 5 mins walk from down town. The place had charm. There was no room fridge, nor one in our building but there were free soft drinks and coffee in the morning from 6am. I was going to give it 5 stars but The previous review about breakfast is true. It's a bit chaotic in there...

My husband and I are from Chattanooga and chose to stay at the Bluff View Inn for our wedding night. The inn looked nice and the Bluff View Art District is special to us (our first date was at Rembrandt's and we've also shared some special meals at Tony's), so we thought it would be the perfect place to begin...

We enjoyed the Bluff View Inn and the Back Porch Inn for dinner. It is a great area and we had a wonderful breakfast at their associated coffee shop, Rembrandt. Our only major concern was the bed and mattress. The mattress was very bouncy and if it was a queen, it is the smallest one I've ever slept in.

Okay this is a beautiful place with an extremely pleasant staff. The rooms are Georgia's, comfortable, clean and well appointed. The neighborhood is alive and artsy. A short walk and you're on Broad Street! They must have 2-3 buildings for the inn. My wife and I have stayed at Inns and B&Bs all over the US And Europe so we...

Stayed in the Moses Wells room and the view was amazing. The room is small but quaint, and on the third floor and I didn't realize how tired I was till I climbed the stairs. The lady who checked us in is very efficient and knowledgeable. The breakfast OK, nothing special. Wish we could have eaten in the Macellan House,...
