This is a decent clean motel a block off the main road. It was reasonably priced, had two clean pools and was quiet. If you are looking for a nice place to sleep and not looking for luxury this is a good option. I will say the couple we were with did not find their room as clean. You might... More

This is a bare bones hotel, but in an awesome location. With the GSMNP at your doorstep you don't need a fancy room. I wanted a place to clean up and rest. This fit it perfectly. The location is what makes it perfect. You can walk Gatlinburg easity from here. Your a few minutes from the park. The room was... More

If you don't mind staying in an older motel, you will be very pleased. The rooms are clean and well-maintained, and the hotel is a very short walk from the parkway (if you have never visited Gatlinburg, you will appreciate this). The owner is very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again.

Great location and the room was perfect. We had two nice queen beds, mini fridge and microwave. Room was very clean, and the front-desk was very friendly and helpful with local information. Would definitely go back to the Mountain House.

If you want to be pampered in a setting of complete luxury, stay somewhere else. If you want a decent room, comfortable bed, standard amenities, proximity to downtown, and don't want to pay a lot, this is the place to stay. The owners are kind folks who work to take care of you. Everything was clean and in working order.... More

We came on our family vacation. The room was clean. had a new pillowtop mattress and 42 inch flat screen. The maids cleaned everyday. The pool was clean. They have 2 pools but one was broke down. The only negative was it could use a new bathroom door the wood was peeling and breaking off. And just walking distance to... More

It's an average motel with average rooms/quality. The room-service don't make our beds and than we had discussions we won't have. The maids pretend not to understand English etc. etc. It's only 5 minutes by foot to the mainstreet and restaurants thats a plus.

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
