We had need to be in the area just for one night. While we had stayed here before (see previous review), we were satisfied with the accomodations, just not real impressed. Well this time I have to say we enjoyed it VERY much and will probably make this our new Gatlinburg home away from home. We had previously stayed at the Kingwood for the last two decades, but it doesn't have the appeal of years past since re-opening.
We stayed on the office side and really enjoyed the convienence of the location to downtown. The room was bright with no dated paneling, etc. The room didn't have that "galley feel of most older motels. I was more rectangular shape giving the feel of openess. Having two sinks made it more convienent as well.
The only issue was a toilet that kept running, but it couldn't be heard with the door shut and the AC on. I informed the front desk just for the simple fact of water conservation for them. Thought the fridge was broken, but it just wasn't closed all the way, but we there for one night only, so no big deal.
Couple of suggestions. As I said before, the room was fairly large - but this blessing was a curse when it came to the small 19" TV. It really needs a 25" or larger. Also, the green carpet could be a warmer earth tone, but that just being picky! I don't live there! Thanks Johnson Inn - see you soon I hope!
