Our stay was good. We stayed over Christmas weekend. Our room was clean when we arrived and we were happy to see that the room with the kitchen was bigger than expected. We were told there would be no maid service on Christmas day. Not a problem at all since they left us extra towels and cleaned on the 24th....

The hotel is within walking distance of the main tourist road. We were able to walk to the pancake pantry, mellow mushroom, ole Smoky. The room was dated and in need of renovations. The bed was uncomfortable. Not the worst hotel but also not the nicest.

Overall great place to stay!! Would stay again next time that we go to Gatlinburg. It's not right on the Main Street but on a side road. Very close to downtown and very close to the Village but you have the peace and quietness! Very short walking distance and the trolley stops at the hotel, just make sure you tell...

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 The room was very outdated.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...

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 The room itself was outdated & had an odor.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This place is outdated and has a little wear on the rooms, but they are fairly clean.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,...
