Reserved a room here due to pretty good reviews, low cost and what was touted as a good location. I liked the fact that it has ample parking in a town where parking is very limited (and expensive). Here's what I didn't like: 1. Location. True, it's only about 100 yards from the Parkway where all the shops and restaurants... More

Hotel was located within 2 minutes walking to main strip. Very safe and quiet area. We stayed 2 nights in two double room which was on the ground floor. I parked my car right in front of my door which was nice. Bed was comfortable but the sheets were yellowish. AC worked perfectly. Room had Microwave, coffee machine and fridge.

This hotel is basic, but it was great for us since we spent most of our days in the National Park. When we arrived, I wiped down all the surfaces, including the toilet seat and tub, with disinfecting wipes. The wipes were still white when I was done. The location is great: a short walk from the main strip, but... More

Stayed 3 nights and was very happy. Very clean and great location. Price was very reasonable. Would definitely stay again. Walking distance from the main strip. Nice location and quite. Didn't want to spend all of our money on an expensive place to stay, this was perfect. Staff was very friendly.

Stayed here for one night passing through the area. Well kept and spacious rooms. Very friendly staff. Located within walking distance of the Main Street in Gatlinburg but not too close to hear the sounds. Would definetly stay here again on our next trip to the area.

Stayed for two nights Last week. Very close to all the shops but far enough away to keep from the noise of the streets. The rooms are very big and clean. Big flat screen TV in our room. The pools looked nice but it rained so we didn't get to use them. Very friendly staff. Will most likely stay again

My wife and I stayed another weekend here while in town. We won't stay anywhere else in Gatlinburg, as long as the Mountain House has room for us. The staff is so very nice and helpful. The rooms are very clean. There is a microwave and mini-fridge in the room. The only problem I had was the wireless was spotty.... More

My wife and I wanted to extend our visit to the National Park by a day and decided on this hotel. This is a great basic hotel. It is an older hotel but it is kept up nicely. Close to downtown Gatlinburg. You couldn’t ask for more. Clean quiet rooms, friendly staff. The property has two pools and free wifi.
