We have stayed at Johnson's Inn several times and have for the most part been pleased. But our recent visit was disappointing. Carpet very dirty, several light bulbs in bathroom and vanity outside the bathroom were not working, TV very old and small, comforters on beds appeared old and not fresh, like they hadn't been washed or cleaned in quite...

My wife and I planned a last minute trip to Gatlinburg to celebrate my birthday. Our usual hotel was full, so we felt lucky to be able to get reservations at a hotel across the street. We love this area to stay in due to the close proximity of the Parkway and ease of access to the attractions in the... More

I was a little worried because of negative reviews but was pleasantly surprised with our stay at Johnson's Inn in Gatlinburg. I have visited this area many times and am well aware of the older motels and lodges in the area. Frankly, I like that there are still small family owned places still around this area. I knew not to... More

We go to Gatlinburg several times a year and Johnson's is our "go to"! Family owned and operated....very clean and friendly. Not the fanciest....but I'll give it up any time to be treated like family at Johnson's.

Great place to base out of for riding the surrounding area. Easy access and a short walk to downtown Gatlinburg. There is a bypass road to get you in and out of town without having to deal with traffic.

We went to Gatlinburg on vacation and traveled a day earlier than planned, so we had no where to stay on the first night. After heading to all the "chain" motels on the strip, which were all full or too busy to deal with little old us, we stopped at Johnson's. The lady at the desk was friendly, gave us... More

We were spending a couple of nights away from home just for rest and fly fishing and did not want to spend much on a hotel knowing we would be in the room very little. Upon arrival the staff was so friendly and made us feel very welcome. I did not expect much from the room considering other reviews I've... More

We called at the last minute and they had a cancellation, so a condo was available. It was such a comfortable and cute two bedroom condo! Everything you would need for a family vacation. Walking distance to downtown Gatlinburg, which was a big plus for us. We walked to the aquarium, dinner and breakfast. It was a great night sleep.... More
