We did our research on the internet, but did not book any hotel. Instead we drove to Gatlinburg from Atlanta with some hotels in mind. They needed to have a decent set of reviews and an affordable price.
We also saw that Johnson's Inn was in the top 10 at some Internet magazine called Inside Gatlinburg. On the Johnson's Inn website they had a special for August for $59 for a double standard.
We reviewed a few other hotels over the internet as well, like the Fairfield Marriot Downtown etc.
When we arrived we went straight to Johnson's Inn and asked to see the rooms. We looked, the carpet appeared clean, the beds looked clean (looked at the mattresses they were clean). The bath was shiny and clean, so was the toilet.
We were happy to take it for the price.
All we needed was a clean place to sleep at night and this little (a bit older) place was just right for our budget.
Believe us, we looked at quite a few places over the internet before our mini-vacation. This price was good on Friday and Sat, unlike some other hotels which only give you a deal Sun to Thur. The staff was friendly enough. We will use this hotel again when we return to Gatlinburg.
The fact that I took the time to come back to this site and write a good review, tells that our family was very satisfied with the accommodations.
