This a great place to stay, clean, friendly, good location, near the aquarium and the Village. The only thing we would advise about Gatlinburg downtown is the sidewalks are uneven, not level and a true "trip" adviser hazard. Hotel great, sidewalks in town bad. Hotel has 2 pools.

I went to Gatlinburg as a child, but this was my first time as an adult. It was a very cute, clean place that was within walking distance of the strip in Gatlinburg. The staff was very friendly and it was a nice quiet hotel. Also, I loved the raccoon statue outside the hotel! Nice Tennessee touch!

Was not sent a confirmation, yet was charged for the room. go elsewhere! Will stay at a Red Roof Inn rather than stay here. Many other options available with good customer service, and a concern for future business.

If you made it on-line you are usually provided an e-mail confirmation with a confirmation number. We do charge a one night stay for all "no-shows" when they... More

Got in at about 1AM and our key was waiting for #216. Second floor room up a flight of stairs; no elevator that I saw. Outside facing, overlooking the other inns. Room was quiet and clean. Lighting was minimal inside the room, but worked; plenty in the bathroom and sink alcove. Moderately roomy with two queen beds and many pillows... More

Everything is within walking distance, far away from the noise to enjoy. We didn't use the pool, but it has very clean. The room was nice and clean, 2 queen beds, flat screen TV, fridge (small)...

For the location and money it was good overnight stay. We didn't swim in the pools. Very helpful desk information and gave trustworthy tips about eating places for supper. We were within walking distance of everything and next to the village. We had coffee and donuts there the next morning.

I booked a room for my son to stay here for two nights and unfortunately he had car problems on the drive down. I called the hotel as soon as I found out and Luann (as sweet as can be) reassured me that they would leave their key out for them if they hadn't arrived by the time the office... More

My wife and I make a couple of trips a year to Gatlinburg. I go for the mountians, she goes for the shopping. Mountain House is a perfect spot for us. We go to Gatlinburg for all there is to do, and not for a spa or lounging around in a hotel. Mountain House is the perfect spot for us.... More

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.
