The rooms were clean, staff friendly, location great. Everything has been updated and maintained. Will stay again. Bring a hair dryer though :) We had one of the rooms with the third bed/extra bedroom. Very nice and roomy. Would have liked to have a tv in the extra room but just happy to find a place with 3 beds.

The best thing about it is the location, very close to Parkway Rd, but far enough to be quiet. The hotel is a little bit old, but very clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly. Not much more to say, but trip advisor forces me to write 200 characters.

This hotel is located about a block off the main drag which was nice because we were able to walk to the strip to eat and sightsee instead of getting into the traffic. Decor was a bit dated but everything was clean. Our room had a small balcony that afforded us a wonderful view of the mountain. It also had... More

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.
