The hotel is currently being remodeled. It is a little messy around the property & that's to be expected. Our room was not completely finished as far the furniture. But that's ok. Its a work in progress. It takes a lot to get from 1988 to 2018. The staff was very friendly, thats

We stayed in a two bedroom condo for 3 days for $300. That was very affordable. The property was under renovations so there was quite a bit of noise and debris around the motel. I can’t say the staff was friendly because every time we had to go to the office, the attendant was

I would recommend other options as well. The renovations were supposed to have been completed in November (based on what I was told in June), but they have yet to start. I'd go with either Mountain House Inn or Jack Huff's. Both are close to Johnson's Inn so you have the "quiet" of being off the Parkway but are just a short walk to everything as well.

are u pet friendly?
No were are not pet friendly, but a few hotels that I would recommend Sydney James and Mountain Heritage Inn. Certain internet search engines have incorrect information about pets for many hotels in Gatlinburg. I would recommend calling before you make any reservations to confirm their pet policy.

Yes,it is type of room that we always stay in. Kitchen is small and clean but has all the necessities, and has a dining area with table and chairs. These are condo apartments, not just a room, and have much more room to move around.
