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.
