Stayed in condos behind hotel. Very reasonable rate for room with king bed and room with queen bed. Also could have used sleeper sofa that made into bed. Very short walk to the Village area in center of downtown Gatlinburg. Staff very accommodating. Trolly stop only half block at main road if you chose to use it to get around... More

I had never visited Gatlinburg before, and blindly chose a location, based on reviews on tripadvisor. I was not disappointed!! This location is incredible! Literally a half block from the main strip in Gatlinburg. Don't expect a 4-star Hilton, but this is a very clean and well-maintained older motor lodge. Furniture may be outdated; however, the bed was perfect...obviously new!... More

Loved staying here. It was a close walk into Gatlinburg. We had a room with a king sized bed and Jacuzzi in it. The room was nice and the staff were friendly. Nice quite place to stay for a weekend get away.

We've stayed here many times before and have recommended it to friends, but not anymore. Our stay this time was at their 'down time' so when we arrived and asked for a room it wasn't a problem as most of the rooms were empty. We requested a room (113) that we like because it is a 2 bedroom suite, but... More

We did a church trip for adults and we stayed at Johnson's Inn and we loved it. Very good location. Rooms were clean and the staff was very nice. We would stay there again. We all have a good room with no problems.

We had trouble getting a hot shower on all 3 days of our stay. The first two days my shower was interrupted with a burst of cold as if someone had flushed a toilet. The last day there was no hot water at all! It was icy cold January mountain water.The hotel was poor in general. You had to ask... More

Room 107 was clean, but it stopped their. The pillows were flat as a pancake as well as the mattresses. Our towels were very thin and worn, some with holes. It is safe to say all the new stuff is placed in the deluxe rooms and the standard rooms get the hand me downs. I was honest and told them... More

This is a clean place to sleep and low budget price. Very outdated but again very clean. Has outside entry to rooms. Close to downtown for walking. Friendly staff. Only stayed the one night. Had a good view of the mountain and you could see Park Vista from our room. I have attached a pic. That day it was snowing.
