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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

We stayed at Johnson's Inn July 4th weekend. It is clean and the staff and housekeeping were excellent. I spent hours sitting out front and looking at mountains and relaxing. Close enough to walk downtown yet very quiet. We have stayed many times

clean hotel, a block from the main street. Hotel is dated. The staff was friendly. Creek view by the front of the hotel but did have a view of the mountains. Bed a bit lumpy. Laundry room on premises. Quiet

I wanted a hotel in downtown Gatlinburg that was reasonably priced (we paid $79/night + tax), clean, had wifi and off the Parkway but close enough to walk to everything. I didn't plan on being in the hotel room much during the day. I just wanted a simple room to relax in at night. Johnson's Inn seemed an ideal candidate... More
