We were delighted with our stay for a Chattanooga visit! What is unique is that the Bluff View Arts District is actually a suite of inns, restaurants, coffee houses, bakeries and art gallery that are all kinda' interlocked into a physical location but also share amenities. For example, there are three lodging choices but all share a common booking and... More

First the good: beautiful rooms, great views, very clean, kind staff, super convenient, quiet But the bad: Since it is a B&B breakfast was included, but not served at the inn. You had to walk around the corner to the Rembrandt's coffee shop for breakfast. That would have been fine except that the first morning they were out of eggs,... More

What a perfect location to enjoy all that downtown Chattanooga, the North Shore, and the Riverpark have to offer. We only used our car once during our stay and then realized it wasn't necessary. We'd definitely stay here again. The Bluff View Inn isn't your usual B&B, with three houses and the Bluff View Arts District as part of the... More

Only a one night stay in this older period property. I will return next trip, very accommodating. Unfortunately I had to leave before breakfast, but look forward to my return stay. Within walking distance to many places of interest.

The room is nice, but a little pricey. The bathroom could use some updates, but it was all OK. The view was great, and you can't beat the location & atmosphere. The weekend breakfast at the Inn was delicious, and the customer service is great. As a bed & breakfast, you don't get much interaction with innkeepers as you may... More

This was our first bed and breakfast experience and we were not disappointed. Bluff View Art district is a self contained little community with three restaurants. If you really wanted to you could park your car once and not move it all weekend because everything you need is within walking distance. We stayed in the Carter room and was very... More

Spent the night at Bluff View. Good B&B location for walking to downtown attractions. Nice view of river from our balcony. Enjoyed the other Bluff View restaurant, coffee house cafe's. Will be back again.

We just got back from a great trip to Chattanooga (love the October weather) and were so happy we found the Bluff View Inn. We had our 3-year-old daughter with us, and we were so pleased with the set-up of the Portera/Randall room. The bathroom was very large, our room was spacious and elegant with comfy bed, and her room... More

We stayed here for a family get-away over a long weekend, enjoying all the family activities that Chattanooga has to offer: aquarium, wooden bridge, glass bridge, large park with huge fountains for kids to play in and horse carousel for $1 a ride... We chose the Bluff View Inn for its central location and to be right next to some... More

We stayed here for two nights in August 2011 - we were in town to visit a sick family member. Can't say enough good about Emma at the front desk - she was super nice and helpful! The location is very convenient to the river front and arts area. The breakfasts are very good. We had the penthouse on the... More
