My husband and I stayed here in Dec of 2014. We were very pleased with the location, parked the car at the motel and walked everywhere! :) The rooms were very clean and bedding and pictures were updated and nice. The bathroom was small, which is to be expected in a motor inn but the vanity/sink area was nice and... More

Over my lifetime I have stayed at Mountain House more times than I could tell you. When I was a kid it was a very nice place. The past few years we have stayed in Pigeon Forge cause we found somewhere we liked better. I visited Mountain House December 2014 when I came to town for my engagement pictures. I... More

What a catch it was to book at this cozy, quiet, inexpensive little hotel! We had the perfect getaway in Gatlinburg, this Christmas. The room was clean, simple but, at the same time, with all you might need. Everything was in great condition, the bath tub/shower worked perfectly and the flat screen TV was rather big compared to the avarage... More

The hotel staff are very nice, the room was simple and very clean, nice television as well. The location is within walking distance of the aquarium and the Gatlinburg shops. We really loved it and we enjoyed walking through the Village to the shops.

This was a weekend getaway with friends and the first time at Mountain House. Price was very good. We actually booked 2 rooms for the price of one on the upper side of Gatlinburg. Rooms were ok. Ran out of hot water in the shower. Bed was very comfortable. They need to invest in new linens for bed and bath.... More

If you stay in room 211 make your you take some to stick under the door. There is 1/2 crack under the bottom of the door. You can see outside real good. The AC/ Heat unit sounded like a airplane taking off everytime it came on. Not much sleep thats for sure. Someone was outside smoking and every time the... More

Since I don't want this to be a completely negative review, let me start out by saying that the water was hot and only one of the pictures over the beds was not straight. The room was dark and depressing, greatly in need of fresh paint and more light. There was a small refrigerator and microwave tucked in the corner... More
