Last minute getaway, peak season, Gatlinburg was booked up! We found vacancy here and stayed two nights. The location is great, just steps from the parkway but on a very quiet street, right across from The Village. The staff is great, very friendly. The bed was great, large, with a firm, cushion top mattress. The water pressure will knock you... More

The place was Clean. And the check in was quick and easy..though after checking In I found out I was on the third floor on the opposite side of the road..the elevator was alright and the room was cleaned..however the door into the patio was not easy to operate because the handle kept falling off. The shower curtain would close... More

We have stayed at Johnson's Inn several times and have for the most part been pleased. But our recent visit was disappointing. Carpet very dirty, several light bulbs in bathroom and vanity outside the bathroom were not working, TV very old and small, comforters on beds appeared old and not fresh, like they hadn't been washed or cleaned in quite...

My wife and I planned a last minute trip to Gatlinburg to celebrate my birthday. Our usual hotel was full, so we felt lucky to be able to get reservations at a hotel across the street. We love this area to stay in due to the close proximity of the Parkway and ease of access to the attractions in the... More

I was a little worried because of negative reviews but was pleasantly surprised with our stay at Johnson's Inn in Gatlinburg. I have visited this area many times and am well aware of the older motels and lodges in the area. Frankly, I like that there are still small family owned places still around this area. I knew not to... More

We go to Gatlinburg several times a year and Johnson's is our "go to"! Family owned and operated....very clean and friendly. Not the fanciest....but I'll give it up any time to be treated like family at Johnson's.

Always have had a pleasant experience staying at this facility. Close to everything in Gatlinburg. We park in parking lot and walk to all the nearby places. Very well kept inn. Never had a problem with and we have stayed there at least 3 or 4 times.

Great place to base out of for riding the surrounding area. Easy access and a short walk to downtown Gatlinburg. There is a bypass road to get you in and out of town without having to deal with traffic.

We went to Gatlinburg on vacation and traveled a day earlier than planned, so we had no where to stay on the first night. After heading to all the "chain" motels on the strip, which were all full or too busy to deal with little old us, we stopped at Johnson's. The lady at the desk was friendly, gave us... More
