Gatlinburg was not at all what we were expecting on the edge of a national park, so thankfully this was just off the main strip. Other than the bells ringing it was quiet. The staff were friendly, the rooms were clean and it was reasonable value for money.

We were staying in Gatlinburg to do some serious hiking in the Great Smokies National Park....the price was definitely a value compared to other properties in the area. We weren't in our rooms much so that also figured into our choice. The office/check in staff were polite but slow. The rooms were clean & definitely adequate for our needs. A... More

Yes, it's old. But for the price and the location so close to the strip, you can't beat it. It's actually a lot cleaner than I excepted, so over all, I'd say it's a good deal and a good stay! The guy at the front desk was super nice too. I'd stay here again!

I stayed at the Mountain House recently and what a wonderful experience. The rooms were very well kept and the staff was very accommodating. With the parkway within walking distance it made the stay even better. I highly recommend The Mountain House for your next trip to Gatlinburg.

Nice motel for the price. This was our first time staying here. It is in a good location. We enjoyed our stay here. Owners are very friendly. The rooms were very clean. And we loved the pools. The only bad thing I can say about this trip is...we stayed 3 nights here. On our VERY last night, we go to... More

My reservation was 'not in the system'. Fortunately I had a confirmation email to show the clerk. She was exceptionally helpful and accommodating. We were even given an upgrade. Therefore I rated the experience better than average. The room itself was maybe a little less than average. Tiny, very tiny bathroom with a door that had been flood damaged. The... More

We booked for $52 plus tax so was very cheap for being walking distance to the strip. Some people said in reviews that they had tile floors but we had dark green carpet. There was 1/4-1/2 inch under door that was exposed to outside and let gnats in. Bathroom was tiny and the door was falling apart. What can you... More

We first stayed here about 20 years ago and fell in love with the owners (the Hays family) and the friendliness of everyone who works here. Fresh coffee always! Walking distance (2 blocks) away from Parkway and the Village Mall. A few minutes by car to the Smokies. It's great affordable and pretty. How can we go wrong? We love... More

This was affordable and clean. We were able to walk a couple of blocks to visit all the stores and markets. We could leave our car even though we would not be done until after check out time. With limited parking this was a big plus.

My fiance and I stayed here two different nights and we were very pleased both times! The staff was very friendly and helpful! The rates are great and the room was clean. The bed was very comfy also and a nice tv. No complaints!
