Hotel was ok the only problem was a moldy shower curtain. I brought problem to front desk and assured me they would fix it. apparently this is a common problem because I was not the first person to complain about it that day. other than that hotel was in good standing

We come down every year during the Christmas parade in December. This was first year during summer. The internet could be a little better. They were having issues with it, but they were attempting to fix it.

We decided to make a quick overnight trip to Gatlinburg just to get away for a night. The hotel we had usually stayed at had gone downhill and changed ownership, so we decided to try Mountain House Motor Inn. I will thrilled with the cost for the room and spoke with a super nice gentleman when making our reservation. We... More

We needed a place to stay for 1 night when we had a problem with our previous accommodations. The employees working the front desk were very friendly and nice. The hotel is on the older side, but it seems to be kept up well. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable (my main concern with any hotel). There... More

This is our last time here. We have stayed here many times before and have seen a steady decline in this property. If you look forward to coming back in the evening and connecting to check your mail, reading Facebook or just surfing the Internet, this is not the place for you. The wifi is horrible, if not completely nonexistent... More

The room was decent for what we paid. Cons: Flat cheap pillows, mysterious wet spots in the carpet that never dried. Pros: perfect location right behind all the main traffic. Walkable to everything (with small babies even). Ample room for play pen and stroller storage. Clean pool.

If you are traveling on a budget and aren't expecting to stay in a 5-star resort, this is the place for you. It is an older hotel, but it appeared to be well taken care of. Our room was clean, and the atmosphere was quiet. It is down a side road off the main strip in Gatlinburg, but is easily... More

We had a very enjoyable stay at Mountain House. We had absolutely no problems during our stay. We we're celebrating our fifth wedding anniversary and spent most of the time out of the room. The beds were remade and the towels were replaced daily. We also took advantage of the do not disturb sign and were able to sleep in... More

We stayed here for 4 nights at the start of may 2015. Our room was exactly what we needed for the 4 of us, including 2 kids, with towels and toiletries included. It definitely surpassed expectations and was incredible value for money. Our room was cleaned daily and the kids loved the heated outdoor pool, even watching the janitor finish... More

We stayed for only one night, 4/25/15. The room was spacious with nice furnishings, was quiet and very clean.We were on the 2nd floor and we had a nice mountain view.The folks at the front desk, morning and evening, were very friendly and accommodating. It was very affordable and we definitely plan on staying again.
