This was our first stay at Johnson's Inn and we were very pleased. The beds were very comfortable and I was pleased with the cotton sheets. Room was clean & spacious. TV was our only issue......old school and small. Amenities were few, but very important (fridge & free parking). The motel is in a great location, just a couple of... More

Great little place to hideaway near the action in Gatlinburg. Amenities are not the best but tolerable. It is a short walk from Downtown therefore saving you the cost of parking downtown also.Peaceful, friendly ans clean!

We stopped off here on our way home from South Carolina heading back to Michigan. The room needs a little maintenance some minor things but for the price you pay not much you can ask for. It was a little weird to find a sink in the bedroom with no bathroom but oh well.

Johnson's Inn is just an older, very basic, inexpensive, no frills motel that happens to be in a great location. We stayed in room 107 which is a non smoking room with 2 queen beds. I liked the fact that we could park right at our door and it was very easy to bring our bags in and out. The... More

This hotel has went down hill over the past 6 years. We usually stay across the street but they were booked. We actually stayed here for our honeymoon 6 years ago and at least then the people were friendly, not this time. Except for the 2 maintenance men who reeked of alcohol. The younger of the two actually admitted to... More

Be warned to carefully consider your decision of an overnight stay. I give the hotel great remarks for their website design and boy were we fooled. Although the hotel has a awesome location for walking direct to all of the sights and shopping I regret to state there were unmentionable crawling creatures found in the middle of the night that...

Had a great stay over Thanksgiving week, rooms were larger than I expected, clean and comfortable. Staff is very friendly and helpful, loved the location, just a short walk to the Village, or the aquarium. Will definitely stay here again.

We loved the experience in this hotel. The rooms are more like apartments, with kitchen and laundry, and they were very clean. It's within a walking distance from all the town's main attractions, since it's located pretty much on the main street. We had an issue with our reservation (our reservation didn't show in their system, but we had our... More
