Very nice friendly staff. This hotel has been a family favorite for over 10 years. Downtown easily accessed to downtown. We will be staying here again in the future. The pools are a little dated but very clean.

We stayed here for the penultimate stop of our road trip, were a group of nine with five rooms, location is everything for this motel, Gatlinburg is obviously a very scenic place & the Mountain House is smack in the middle of it, a very short easy walk to all downtown attractions/bars/restaurants , check in was easy (or as easy...

This was our 4th visit/stay at Mountain House Motor Inn. However, I was very disappointed in the bathroom/shower. There was mold and mildew all above the shower -- it was disgusting. There were spiders & bugs (some dead/some alive) in all the corners of the room. There was also a big wad of chewing tobacco on the floor near one... More

Earlier this year we gave this motel a review with a poor rating due to housekeeping problems. We recently re-visited the Mtn. House Motel due in part to their having called us after the first review and having been sent a voucher for a complimentary night's stay. We went back for three nights hoping that things had improved because over... More

Wasn't sure what to think when I walked in the lobby with my white sox hat on and the guy behind the counter wouldn't check me in until I removed it. (Cub fan), it was a really good stay. Large clean room, close to the main drag. Me and the Cub fan took a few fun jabs at each other's... More

Great location, not down town, but close. Beds were new and so was the carpet. It was very clean. Only problems, it needed a security latch on the door for sleeping, and someone had kicked holes in the bathroom door.

Read previous reviews - overall average rating led me to think it would be fine for a night. We could see it was an old motel but reviews made it sound do-able so we checked in and went to have dinner. Got back to the room: it had old furnishings and a rickety chair-but we were there to sleep; threw... More

Everything was as described. No problems. Staff was very friendly. We will definitely be back. I must admit we were hesitant about stay based on some reviews we read but I'm very glad we gave it a chance. Pool was open and very clean. Only thing I would change was adding a breakfast.
