The room was exactly what we needed - clean with a hot shower! The pool and awesome water presure in the shower for my very long and thick hair was a great plus. The only thing I would like to see improved would be for the mattresses to have a fully incassed mattress cover and to make the shower head...

We have been coming here each year in May for many years. True, it's a little on the run down side but it's clean and priced right. The pool is always sparkling clean and you're away from the noise of main street Gatlinburg but close enough to walk to many restaurants, stores and attractions. Trolly stops right at motel for...

My wife and I have stayed at Mountain House dozens and dozens of times over the past 30+ years.We were there before they ever bought the Econo Lodge wing of their property. Mountain House was a wonderful tradition. They would greet us by name when they saw us. The Hayes family sent us Christmas cards every year. Then I watched...

Love to stay there because it's so close to town. Walk down to The Village, relax and enjoy the fountain, flowers and watching people, along with the shops. You can head out to either the mountains, Pigeon Forge or Art and Crafts Community easily from there. Older place but clean and family owned. Very quiet with fridge and microwave. The...

Check in was easy and friendly. The owners were very helpful with directions to "back roads" to get to a local grocery store. Perfect location to walk to EVERYTHING in Gatlinburg! Just off the main road...nice and quiet. Only negative is I am 5'3" and I had to dip my head slightly for the shower head :( They do all...

My family and I stayed here May 13-14 2016. When we walked in the room it was nothing like the pictures on the website. The bathroom was disgusting! I had to stand in the bath tub just to close the door. That's how small it is. No privacy at all! The front desk clerk doesn't get to the hotel until...

Spent two nights at the Mountain House and had a great experience. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. The room had a refrigerator, microwave, and coffeemaker. Very clean room. This motel is a great value whether you are doing the tourist thing on Gatlinburg or spending time in the National Park.

We come to Gatlinburg often. A few years ago the people at this motel allowed us to park there and walk around town for a small parking fee. Cheaper than the pay lots. They were very nice,I made a vow that the next time we stayed, it would be there. We did during Christmas of 2015 this year. Again..very nice...

The room was older but very clean! One of the cleanest we've stayed in! The price was very reasonable & very close to downtown shopping! Fridge didn't really keep things very chilled & pool looked dirty however; we wern't planning on swimming. We definitely will be staying here again!
