Stayed here the week of Christmas. Hotel is a block off the main strip, so you don't have all the noise, but close enough to walk to all the action!! Older hotel with small bathroom, Extra firm mattress, but large rooms and tons of pillows. Our room was clean and the staff was friendly. Heated pool, although we didn't use it. Not a lot of "perks", but the price was great. Only drawback is the WiFi leaves much to be desired. Glad we didn't have to have it!!

Stayed there our first trip to gatlinburg! We loved it! Clean rooms, friendly people and perfect location! We will definitely come back and stay here again. Short walk to all of the attractions downtown! Staff was very friendly and comfy beds were waiting at the end of the night! Definitely will stay here anytime we are in town!

My wife and I have stayed here twice now (would've been 3 times, but we missed the office being open by 30 minutes last year because it was the down-season (mid-January)). It's by far our favorite place to stay in Gatlinburg. Nice, clean, big rooms that back up to a creek. You can open your bathroom window and hear the water.
The staff is very kind and accommodating. When calling for a reservation, they actually asked if we had a preferred room. Who does that now-a-days?
It's easy to walk to all the shops and restaurants on the main strip from the Mountain House.
We love it. Can't wait to go back.

I just spent 3 nights. The room was clean. The staff was not only friendly but also helpful. They recommended places to eat that were off of the tourist radar. The location is about a 5 minute walk from downtown Gatlinburg. No reason to move your car for the entire stay.

Stayed 3 nights only because we had prepaid through travelocity. The room was clean but definitely in need of an overhaul. The bathroom was smaller than a broom closet and needed repairs. The shower head was set less that 2 feet above the faucets so we had to stoop over to rinse. The toilet is so close to the door that you have to practically step over the toilet to get into the bathroom. Shower curtain way to small for the tub so the floor flooded every time we showered which I am sure was the cause of the mildew in the bathroom. Would have left after the first night had we not prepaid. I understand that this property is very old but that does not excuse neglect.

Expected more from a motel with a pretty good rating... Dirty bed comforter, tiny sink/bathroom area, toilet ran on, toilet not secured to floor, tub didn't drain, bathroom door only opened halfway. They even lost my reservation. Nice TV was about it.
