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...

This is a great location about a half block catercorner from the Aquarium. Nice clean rooms with helpful staff. It is an old motel that could use new carpet or at least new bedspreads with nicer colors. It could use some updates but it is really nice. Beds were comfortable for a good night's rest. I will stay here again!

My wife & I were on our way back from a Florida trip and decided to get a room in Gatlinburg, TN., instead of Ashville, NC. We had stayed in Johnson's Inn before, in a room with a Jacuzzi, and decided, after a lengthy drive, the Jacuzzi would be nice. We booked two nights. (We wanted to check out the...

This was a nice hotel, and very quiet. About 3 blocks from the main drag. Nice big rooms, shower water pressure was VERY STRONG. Could use some updating. Carpet worn, no microwave, VERY OLD TV ( ours didn;t work), but that was ok, as we usually don't have time to view TV while on vacation.

This is an older inn, but each time we have stayed, the rooms have been very clean and comfortable. The staff is wonderful, and you cannot beat the location. It is our go-to place to stay in Gatlinburg.

Had a great visit to Johnson's Inn. Couldn't beat the location or the price for the room. It had a refrigerator and microwave. May not be up to date but beds were very comfortable and the room was very clean. Easy walking to the Village and Downtown Gatlinburg. Have stayed here several times and will stay again.

This is an older motel, but it was clean, comfortable and close to town, plus the rates are really good. We had made reservations online and check in was a breeze. We were put in a king room on the first floor. The parking is right outside if your door when you are on the first floor. This is great...

Nice room and excellent location. Walked right through the Village and onto the main street of Gatlinburg. You can make coffee right in your room and sit outside by the peaceful flowing river. That is one of the nice things about visiting the Smokey Mountains!
