The Johnson Inn is a small hotel just a little bit off the strip. It had pretty good reviews here so we decided to give it a try. First the good. It is a very good location. It is about a block and a half off the strip at light #6. You can also cut through the village complex and... More

Has this been under new management? We have stayed there several times over the years and the last two stays have been awful. The time before last that we tried to book, the front desk booked our room for the wrong night and they were unable to get us a room. It was very stressful. This last time we tried... More

We stayed at this hotel 2 years ago and it's definitely went downhill. As soon as we walk in I find a huge centipede in the bathtub and dead bugs on the floor by the kitchen. The outlet in our bathroom did not work at all, there was mold above the shower head and we almost received third degree burns... More

Having previously stayed in a room facing the street and having enjoyed the private balcony overlooking the creek, we returned to Johnson's Inn for the convenient location as it is within easy walking distance of The Village and other central attractions. Although the rooms were clean and the rates reasonable, the general feel of the place is pretty outdated and... More

The room was clean and location is great. If you are looking for a place to stay with nothing extra. Bed is comfortable. Did not have a microwave or hair dryer in the standard room- do not know if any other room had it. TV is small but I was not there to watch TV. Small pool but did not... More

I went with the high reviews and was disappointed. For the money we paid I expected a bit more. The pillows and conforters were worn out, and the TV was very small. Overall the rooms were fairly clean. It's right in the center of Gatlinburg, so that made very convenient.

We stayed at Johnson's Inn in the King Jacuzzi Fireplace room in October 2013 for a week and it was overall a great stay. The room was clean, the staff was very helpful and friendly, the jacuzzi was wonderful, as for the fireplace, it did not work. They had their men to try and fix it immediately and even though...

We have been staying with Johnson's Inn for years now. We usually stay in one of their standard non-smoking two queens rooms, but this vacation we decided to stay in their two queens room with the kitchenette (non-smoking). They only have ONE of these rooms, so we booked it over the phone months in advance to ensure that it would... More

This location is great. We were allowed to check in early, and while it does need some major updates, it is clean and quiet. We did have a leak in our bathroom when we arrived, however it was addressed immediately and we didn't have any additional problems. It's right across from the Village, but away from the main road. Great... More

We have been coming to the Mountains for over 20 years. We have never stayed here before it and we loved it. It was clean and in a great location. Would definately stay here again. It was very convenient to walk in to town and also to go the back roads to get to the Roaring Fork motor trail without... More
