Picked this place because it is an easy walk to the main strip, which means we were close to stuff and didn't have to pay to park. Our room was spacious, but a bit dated. The advertisements on top of the TV were old (some shows had been closed for years) and the Gatlinburg boo should be thrown away (dated... More

I read several reviews stating that the rooms are dated. I have stayed at many places in Gatlinburg and Johnson's is very comparable to the other places I have stayed, and I don't mean this negatively. Great price and location. They only negative thing I could mention is that the tv's in the rooms are the dinosaur tube tv's. Could... More

Great location & friendly staff. The rooms were very spacious, and we really enjoyed the fire place & the jacuzzi, and also sitting on the patio by the stream, complete with a few ducks! Great location; we will be back!

Love the location and stayed in the condos instead of the motel. Very reasonable price for a condo just a block off main street in center of town. Definitely will be staying there again. Also close to the Ripley Aquarium that is biggest attraction in Gatlinburg. No problem walking there.

We stayed in a deluxe room on the creek (just like always). We had 3 leaky faucets and a terrible bumping/rattling sound that kept us awake at night. Maintenance man tried to help and he did the best that he could with those problems. Also, there was small trash in the mulch outside of our room. You would have assumed... More

I booked a room thru the hotels website after seeing good reviews and a good price on TripAdvisor. There wasn't many pictures but the ones posted where great! After my visit I believe they took pictures of their best room and even question the reviews. When I walked into the first room and looked around I immediately wished I had... More

We reserved a king with jacuzzi room, it was nice very clean room. The staff was great on check in. When we came back the toilet in our room was making a weird noise then water began gushing out and flooding the floor. I called front desk while my husband turned off the water. Maintenance was there fast, the man... More

TV is small and internet would never really connect. We had issues with TV not working but maintenance came quickly. Someone had stolen the right remote. Rooms were very clean no smoke smell. You are not even supposed to smoke on the balcony. It is located in a very nice area. The poor internet is why I won't stay there... More

Good price for room, very clean, friendly staff, and conveniently located. I would rate this a five it weren't for the fact this room was SOOOO OUTDATED. Please upgrade!!! I thought all hotels came with a flat screen tv and DVD player instead of a VCR. That sounds very "spoiled" of me, I know. Looking at the furniture, carpet and... More
