This hotel is in a very good location being about a block from the Parkway. The Office staff and cleaning people were all very nice. The room was very outdated. The lighting was so poor, reading a book was impossible and one of the lamps was broken. The rug felt sticky and dirty, so I always wore shoes while walking...

This motel is in the perfect location, but honestly a complete refurbishing of the place would be nice. Girl's weekend and needed a place for the night, had stayed there before. Room was dark dark, floors needed molding, paint job in bathroom looked rough, just a run down condition overall. Please owners get with the times, update your rooms. It...

Extremely Rude lady @ front desk upon check in & Highly overpriced room in October. The room itself was outdated & had an odor. I go to Gatlinburg at least 3 times a year & I'll certainly Not return here.

This is the second time we've stayed in the Johnson Inn condos, which are roomy, clean, with great beds, baths, and appliances. It's very convenient to the Aquarium and The Village area of Gatlinburg's Parkway. Right off the #6 light.

This place is outdated and has a little wear on the rooms, but they are fairly clean. The staff is great. This one older lady is great about making suggestions on where to shop and eat. I love this location. It is back off the main strip, but really close to The Village. It is so convenient to just cut...

Very nice place to stay. Very close to downtown Gatlinburg. The folks were very nice. And it was very clean. We walked most everywhere we went. The towels were very soft. When we go back to Gatlinburg we will definitely stay there again.

I want to say that Johnson's Inn was just what we needed. The room was ready when we got there and everything was so easy at check in. It is a great place to stay. It is close to everything downtown but yet we did not hear all the noise. The room was clean, no mold or mildew, no bugs,...

It's not the fanciest place, and it could use updating, but it's clean and in a primo spot. You can walk down a block and be right there at the biggest intersection in Gatlinburg. My room was in the building across the street, by the pool. I was flying solo on this trip, but it's plenty of room for your...

My wife and I made a quick decision to spend a couple of days in Gatlinburg, TN. We decided to drive up on Labor Day as this would be the start of the "off season" for prices and the crowds would be considerably thinned out. I checked the website of several of our usual hotels and discovered a really good...

We only stayed 1 night but we loved it. The room was nice and we liked the balcony and fireplace. We will stay there again. It is within walking distance to the downtown. so you could walk everywhere.
