We have stayed here numerous times over the last 25 years it has steadily declined and after this last stay (4 yrs after the last time we stayed) I would say stay away. Dirty halls, elevator was nasty, room is old and toilet was barely attached to the floor. Refrigerator made a very loud noise, and TV was maybe 20...

I had always wanted to stay at Johnson's Inn but always changed my mind at the last minute. We stayed over the 4th of July and was very pleased with our room and the service we received. One of the cleaning ladies noticed that my niece did not have a pillowcase on the pillow she brought from home and she...

We have been staying with Johnson's Inn for close to a decade now. We have had some great stays with them over the years and have always returned knowing that we had a great location close to the Village and parkway attractions. Rooms were always a little outdated, but it was clean. Plus the location was KEY. It is close...

This is the most outdated place l have ever been. The interior hallways are remind me of a prison the cinder block walls painted brown and tan the carpet is old dirty and stained. Thank God the rooms were clean and updated about ten years ago. Would you believe a TV with a CD and change built in. If I...

We've stayed at Johnson's Inn several times over the past 30 years. It's in a great location to walk to the main street of downtown Gatlinburg. However, it's been several years since we've been here and it shows. Our room was outdated and after inspection dirty....we chose a room with a jacuzzi and there was a ring around the tub...

We are staying here for the week of June 6, 2016. Upon arrival the room looked very clean and was quite spacious. We have a full kitchen, bathroom and 2 queen beds (which are very clean and decently comfortable). It could use some cosmetic updates but that's not a deal breaker for us. The location is great; the walk to...

The location is very good for downtown attractions and that is the main reason we chose it. It is an older property which could use a little TLC, but it was clean, and convenient-just off the parkway. Amenities are scarce-no breakfast, hair dryer, flatscreen TV, or microwave, but there was a mini-fridge. One of the towels had a large hole...

We regularly stay at the Johnson Inn. Convenient to the parkway dining and romantic walks. The deluxe rooms are well worth the added cost. Staff has been very pleasant and accommodating to any special requests. Rates are highly competitive close to trolley stop or walking distance to Gatlinburg's many dinner spots.

Their beds are very comfortable, rooms are clean.We asked for extra towels and pillows and they were in our room. Some small inconveniences when we where there were the ice machine was out of order. There was no artificial sweetener for the coffee and my friend is diabetic. No snack machine.
