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This place is outdated and has a little wear on the rooms, but they are fairly clean.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,...

It's not the fanciest place, and it could use updating, but it's clean and in a primo spot. You can walk down a block and be right there at the biggest intersection in Gatlinburg. My room was in the building across the street, by the pool. I was flying solo on this trip, but it's plenty of room for your...

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...

We only stayed 1 night but we loved it. The room was nice and we liked the balcony and fireplace. We will stay there again. It is within walking distance to the downtown. so you could walk everywhere.

All-over out dated room Needs TLC bad. Holes in bedspread. Carpet and chairs dingy. It's such a great location...it's a shame there isn't more attention paid to the hotel itself. The staff was friendly which was nice...but won't constitute a future stay unfortunately.

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...
