The place we normally stay was booked. We had seen this place and called to find they still had a room. friendly staff and great location. The rooms need a bit of attention and a little detail to cleaning, would stay again but would not be my first choice.

We have stayed at Johnson's Inn for 3 year now and have always loved it! It's inexpensive and just a little outdated but always clean! The staff is always friendly and helpful. Walking distance to everything!!!!!! Just park the car!!!! We enjoy walking to " The Village".... You gotta visit the "The Donut Friar". Totally awesome donuts and Coffee! And...

My wife and I stayed here recently on a quick trip to Gatlinburg. We had read a few reviews of Jonson's Inn and thought "what the heck". The Inn is a couple of differant properties. We stayed in the old 2 story motor inn. We booked one of the cheap King rooms online. The Inn is very convenient to downtown...

We just stayed here in a 2 BR condo (Sept 19-24 2013). It was our first time staying at this property. I will start by saying that the price is great for the location. We literally parked the car and walked everywhere since we were so close to the main strip. It was wonderful being so close to everything and...

I've been staying at Johnson's Inn since the early 1990's. Johnson's has two buildings, the original Johnson's Inn and the "Mountain View Condo" building. The MVC building is a little newer so I requested to stay there. While the room is in need of some updating, the cost ($49.99 a NIGHT!) and location is great. Johnson's Inn is just right...

We booked over the Labor Day weekend this year at Johnson's Inn and found it an excellent place to stay. It was very clean, extremely quiet, and convenient. Located 1 block off the Parkway near the aquarium and near the 'village'. Everything is close. We stayed on the 1st floor and could hear no one in the room above us...

I have always promoted this Inn because it was locally owned and operated. This year the service and the cleanliness was down. We used a roll away and had to fix it...had a hole in the bottom. I was very disappointed. Two weeks ago, found out why! The Inn and Condos have been sold according to the email but after...

Third time staying there. Two times in Condo and one time in Hotel room. Condo's are very nice and provide everything needed for cooking etc. Hotel room is average, clean but you can tell the age. It is 1 and 1/2 block from the Parkway (light #6) and 2 blocks from the aquarium. We like it because of the convenience...

My wife and I spent a week in mid July and we won't be returning. It appears that Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge are over-built with motels and there are better choices all around. They placed us on the fourth floor with a view of a big parking lot. I had been told that first floor would not be a problem...

My family has stayed at Johnson's Inn in Gatlinburg since I was a little girl. I have great memories of swimming in the old pool and staying in various rooms through the hotel throughout the years. My husband and I and our two grandsons stayed there for four nights. Although we had a few problems with the toilet, the room...
