This B&B is highly rated. As we arrived, I thought two things immediately: will our car be safe in this transitional neighborhood and; can I sleep (as a noise-sensitive person) surrounded by busy streeets? I wanted to leave as soon as I saw our room . Every inch had something old on it: antique clothes hanging on doors, dolls peering down at me from the tops of amoires, old stuff everywhere. As a minimalist,someone who adores white walls unadorned, this was Purgatory. The owner is nice woman but; not gracious when I wanted to ditch. The property was clean but the neighborhood is now sketchy. There were alot of empty homes and homes for sale surrounding Red Bluff Cottage. And just when I wanted a television to escape my angst, there are none in the rooms. If you are a lover of all Antique; if you love the stuff that is B & B;if you love a good pancake breakfast; this for you! If you like clean lines and pristine white wallls - run as fast as you can to La Quinta!

RedBluffBNB, Owner at Red Bluff Cottage, responded to this reviewResponded 20 December 2011

At Red Bluff Cottage Bed & Breakfast, we appreciate all comments from our guests. We feel that two sentences taken from this guest's review truly describe Red Bluff Cottage. The sentence “This B&B is highly rated” is made valid by the many wonderful reviews by many appreciative guests. The second sentence is “If you are a lover of all Antique; if you love the stuff that is B & B;if you love a good pancake breakfast; this for you!” This is why guests stay at B&Bs … for the atmosphere, the comfort, the cleanliness, the coziness and at Red Bluff Cottage, the great breakfast.

These guests spoke with Bonnie before making the reservation. They explained that they travel with a service dog. We have a "No Pets" policy; but, we occasionally make exceptions in cases like this. (However, when these guests arrived, the need for the service dog was not apparent.) This was their only concern during the phone call, no other issues were mentioned.

Our website has very clear photos of each room, so they knew how the room was decorated prior to making the reservation. Our website also states that we are in Montgomery’s oldest residential neighborhood, Cottage Hill, near downtown Montgomery. Some houses are under renovation, which is good for the neighborhood. Occasionally, we hear a truck on the street. Many guests comment about how quiet the neighborhood is at night. Also, when making a reservation, our cancellation policy clearly states 72 hour notice. The vast majority of our guests appreciate not having a television in the bedrooms. In our common area we have a television for our guests.

After reading this review, we are puzzled as to why they would stay at any bed & breakfast? If they are looking for pristine while walls, they clearly need to stay in a “La Quinta” and not a bed and breakfast.

We do wish these guests (and all our guests) a very blessed Christmas and a safe and Happy New Year.

We had a wonderful visit at the Red Bluff Cottage. Bonnie and Barry are warm and accommodating hosts, making sure we were comfortable and all of our needs were met. We stayed in the Great Gatsby room. It was lovely - a beautiful room - and the bed was very comfortable.

Breakfast each morning was delectable, and Barry and Bonnie were happy to accommodate our earlier than normal breakfast time. The table settings were lovely and the food was artfully prepared. Not a detail was missed.

Barry and Bonnie made our visit to Montgomery better than we could have imagined. We will definitely be back!

This is a lovely, warm, comfortable B&B very close to downtown. Barry and Bonnie are so welcoming and even willing to chauffeur guests to local restaurants. The rooms are clean and beautifully appointed. Breakfast was great! It is a lovely place to stay when visiting Montgomery.

Bonnie and Barry were gracious hosts. Everything was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was very good and more than ample. We especially liked the triple berry smoothie which was served before the breakfast entree. We enjoyed the candy dish of m + m's and bottled water. If you are in the area, plan to stay here.

Room Tip: There are no televisions in the rooms, but there is one in the common area.

My Husband and I recently stayed at the Red Bluff Cottage Bed and Breakfast in Montgomery Alabama. Bonnie and Barry welcome us into their home and made us feel like we were family. Just outside our room was a frig with cold sodas and waters, mints and snacks. Our room was filled with unique antiques and was very comfortable. We had everything we needed and more. Everything was clean and comfortable. Our room was filled with many extras like soft thick bath robes, q-tips in a jar (just like at home) and interesting books to read. We woke up to coffee brewing in the hallway. We took our drinks to the front porch and relaxed in the rocking chairs, enjoying the view of downtown Montgomery. Then we were called to the breakfast table that was decorated like a thanksgiving dinner table. We were served a multiple course, five star resort breakfast. We enjoyed the company of Bonnie and Barry and two other couples that were staying at the B&B. We were pampered. Bonnie and Barry made us feel like family, we will be back for another visit.
