You just can't get a better location than Johnson's. It is close enough to walk to everything in town. That was the primary reason for our choosing this Inn for our recent weekend in Gatlinburg. We never had to try to look for a spot to park or pay for a lot or garage spot. The room was comfortable and... More

I reserved a queen room with a fireplace. Even paid extra for the fireplace. When we got into the room the fireplace did not work. I called the front desk to ask about it. She said all the fireplaces in the building were out. I told her I paid for the room with a fireplace. She didn't respond. After stating... More

We stayed here in October and were very disappointed. We had heard that the Inn was undergoing some renovations and came recommended. To be perfectly honest, it was a step lower than a Hampton or Holiday Inn Express. The only redeeming feature was that it had a great location for the strip. The TV set in my camper is bigger...

The room was neat, clean and had a nice smell. My two main objections to it were that is was rather small and since we were put in the "older" part of the Inn, the pictures online are not what we got.

A bit overpriced, although due to its location. The motel is a bit dated but it had convenient parking and the location was great. The room was clean and quiet. I was disappointed in how my stay began, as I arrived exhausted and the room key cards I was given didn't work. The maintenance man was extremely courteous and helpful... More

Quaint motel with excellent location to Gatlinburg strip. Walking distance to everything! We've been staying at this motel for 30+ years and it's always been nice and clean. Best hotel mattress I've ever slept on; we were told they just replaced the mattresses 2-3 months ago. My only recommendation for Johnson's would be to invest in new bathroom towels. They... More

I've stayed at Johnson's Inn with my family almost every year of my life since the late '70s. This place used to be great but it has seriously gone down hill over the last 10 to 15 years. It has the best location you could possibly ask for but is SERIOUSLY in need of a total remodel. Everything here has... More

Clean is about all I can say for this. The room was dated, the bed was horrible, and listening to the neighboring church bells were almost more than we could take. I tried emailing the hotel when we got home to let them know that the bed should be thrown out immediately, but the email kept rejecting due to their... More

We take our 88 year old friend with us. We stay in the condos which works out great because she has her own bedroom and bathroom. But she's still with us. Our experience has been nice and quiet place to stay. Great location.
