The view is the only great thing here. The hillside hideaway needs a desperate makeover. One bedroom doesn't have a door at all. The bedroom that does have a door the door won't shut and the knob is falling off. The bathroom door won't close either, leaves a good 3 inch gap so you have no privacy. The refrigerator was...

My wife and I spent the holiday weekend in the Moccasin room and it was better than described! The hotel was built in the 30's and has all the charms as such, well maintained. Something of outdoors art deco styling. The bed was comfortable. We watched fireworks from our private balcony. The cats were friendly. The staff were very attentive... More

This is an older Inn, probably from the 1950's or older. It has been restored and kept up so it's in pretty good condition considering. All the rooms have a great view. They are smaller and quaint because of the era they were constructed. However, the room I stayed in was a suite. It was larger and very clean and... More

This is a very old place, but has been well cared for. Our room was quaint and well appointed. The biggest draw is that is on the side of Lookout Mountain overlooking the Tennessee River. Each room has a balcony with a beautiful view.

Great views of the river and Chattanooga from the private balcony of our room and a beautiful, yet inaccessible oasis of a pool are about the only good things I can say about this Inn. Owner friendly until you arrive, then you seem to be more of an inconvenience than a paying guest worthy of hospitality. There are a myriad... More

Sky Harbor is a small rustic inn with a great view. It is located on Lookout Mountain which enables convenient access to the tourist attractions on the mountain (Rock City, Ruby Falls, Point Park, etc). Each room has a great view of the Tennessee river, nature, and Chattanooga. It is not fancy or new, it is rustic, quaint, and homey.... More

I was travelling through Chattanooga for just one night and decided to stay here based on the amazing views and the reviews on Tripadvisor. The room was very cozy and the view from the balcony was fabulous. Patsy was super friendly and the room was very clean. I would certainly stay here again.

I have visited this establishment on several occasions over the past 25 years. The overall enjoyment is in the character, old style charm, and fantastic view from the room. Nestled atop Lookout Mountain, TENN Sky Harbor Bavarian Inn provides one surprise after another. There is a shallow swing pool, outdoor fire pits, walking path (for those who like to walk... More

Sky Harbor has a view to die for! Patsy will make you feel very welcome. Very close to Ruby Falls, the Incline Railway, and Rock City and just a few minutes from Downtown Chattanooga. You wont be dissappointed!

Met the inlaws family @ Sky Harbor Bavarian Inn and we rented 4 rooms. All the rooms all had flat screen televisions, great views , and nice seperate balconies. We were able to rent the Skybox Event room and it was a perfect place for everyone to hang out and have dinner together. There was a large balcony area off... More
