“Great location! Clean rooms! Friendly service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013 via mobile

I would recommend this hotel for an inexpensive Gatlinburg trip. The room was very clean. It had a refrigerator, microwave, and a nice balcony.

It was walking distance to the strip, and it saved money paying to park in Gatlinburg.

This is the place to stay. The bed was confortable too. The comforter on the bed isn't the down comforter I'm used to sleeping with at home, but then again this is what it is...

A value hotel that is clean, spacious, and convenient. 5 stars!

This place is kept up very well. I didn't see even a piece of chipped paint during our stay. The rooms are neat, comfortable, and have plenty of storage. The location can't be beat. Literally half a block from the main strip. Once you park your vehicle, you main not have to move it again. We travel often and very rarely does one come across a gem like Jack Huff's Motor Lodge. Ridiculously cheap for the quality and location. It's quaint and feels "family run", and we love that. Our only complaint is that they do not have laundry facilities.

Room Tip: There are rooms that line the pool area (first floor) with a rear door opening to the parking lot, a...

This is our #1 place to stay in Gatlinburg. If you like to be close to The Village. But not on the Main Street. The Jacks is the place for you! Rooms are huge and the staff is some of the most curteous I have ever seen. Even at hotels at twice the price.

Jack's has become our Gatlinburg home away from home.

Just sorry tripadvisor only has 5 stars. They deserve 10!

We know friends who always stay at Jack Huff's in Gatlinburg. When my sister was seeking a hotel for the night, I recommended it to her and she booked it. She advised today, with photos to confirm, that the place has termites - including at least 2 in the room. Evident in the wood logs around the exterior as part of the landscaping with multiple termite spots evident to the public. So very sorry I recommended Jack Huff's and will make our long term friends who frequent Jack Huff's multiple times a year aware of the situation.

I booked our room at Jack Huff's based on the reviews on Trip Advisor and am so glad I did! The room was spacious and clean and had been recently updated. The beds were comfy. And we loved the balcony. The only complaint I had was that the wi-fi was spotty and seemed to work best on the balcony. Would recommend and would stay here again.

Room Tip: I would recommend a room on the third floor.

We found Jack Huff's Motor Lodge using Trip Advisor. We've stayed at similar motels across the country, namely the Blackhawk Motel in Wisconsin Dells, and hoped this would be another older hotel that has been kept up. We weren't disappointed. Jack Huff's is an older property so they can keep the room rates down, which is what I need when taking a family on vacation. It's an older motor lodge type of place but the room was very clean. The pool and jaccuzzis were very well managed and the location is very good. The main Gatlinburg strip is about a block down the street. This saves you on having to pay to park. Unless you find a place to park on the street (not many), you will have to pay $7 or $8 to park anywhere on the strip. The only CON about this place is that the Privacy Please sign does not apply. BEWARE! We left a bunch of our electronics and stuff out in the room and went for breakfast in town. We put the PRIVACY PLEASE sign out but to our surprise housekeeping cleaned the room anyways. They didn't touch anything but you are left with a feeling of intrusion since everywhere else I've ever been that sign means to stay out, don't even knock. Well, the second day we put the sign out again and just happened to be in the room when housekeeping came and knocked on the door. I yelled through the door "No thank you!" They asked through the door if I needed towels and trash changed out. I was advised that they are required by management to check the room even with that sign posted. SOOO- Be sure to tell the front desk if you want privacy! What if we were a newlywed couple in the throws of passion? Nothing kills the mood more than someone yelling, "Housekeeping!" at you through the door.

Room Tip: I marked Room Service as Terrible because of the Privacy Please issue. Read my full review for detai...

Classic Motor Lodge motel. Not new or modern but extremely clean and large rooms. Great location and friendly service. I'm usually a Hilton brand hotel guy when I travel for business and Jack Huff's was better that most across the board. Don't be turned off by the older style and decor. Unfortunately we were only able to stay one night but the staff was very accommodating to our needs and requests. We are already planning a return visit to Gatlinburg for the fall/winter and Jack Huff's will be our place of choosing.
