We stayed three nights Thanksgiving weekend! This is our new place to stay in Gatlinburg! Clean, comfortable beds, nice tv, friendly and accommodating staff, and close to the main parkway! Most important reasonably priced! I have stayed in too many motels in Gatlinburg to name and for the price this by far is the best I have stayed in! Will... More

We needed a budget room in Gatlinburg at the last minute for one night over Thanksgiving weekend. Pretty much everything was either booked already, required more than one night stay or was way more than we wanted to pay. Although it was showing no vacancies on the motel website, we found an open room for Mountain House on the bookit.com... More

Stayed here for 3 nights early July and returned late July but tripadvisor wouldn't allow another review. This stay was just as good as the first. Clean room, good location, good management. Have recommended to friends and family.

We stayed here two nights. The hotel is older but our room was clean. The hotel staff were very friendly. The location is great. It is within walking distance of downtown. I would recommend this hotel for sure.

Just returned from two nights, 18-20 Nov., at Mountain House Inn in Gatlinburg. I wanted something economical that was within a short stroll to the strip. It has been ten years since I last stayed here, but it felt very familiar and is one of the last remaining original places to stay. The town is transforming into a modern mecca... More

We stayed there for 2 nights, clean room, great price for 2 nights, within walking distance to the main street. The beds were very comfortable. The bathrooms could use some new lights (was a little dark). I felt safe staying there and I would stay there again.

The only things that could have improved the Inn would be an indoor heated pool and breakfast provided. Otherwise, for the price, I am absolutely overly pleased. We were able to check In a few hours early. Room was super clean, did not see a single bug. Air and heat worked great. Wifi was strong, which is something I have... More

We only stayed one night but for the price, it was perfect. Short walk from the strip, very clean, smelt nice, comfortable, and the bathroom floor was heated! The staff was kind and helpful as well. I will definitely stay here again

If you really like a clean modest hotel for a reasonable rate then this is it. It's within walking distance to many attractions and shopping. The room is comfortable and clean but not what I'd call plush or luxury. More like comfortable and simple but I've stayed in many area hotels that charge far more for less.

We made a late call to stay in Gatlinburg and had not appreciated the popularity of this time of year in the Smoky Mountains. Most motels were fully booked and those that weren't were very expensive. However we were influenced by the positive reviews of this property and were able to book two double rooms for a very reasonable price.... More
