Great location, not down town, but close. Beds were new and so was the carpet. It was very clean. Only problems, it needed a security latch on the door for sleeping, and someone had kicked holes in the bathroom door.

Read previous reviews - overall average rating led me to think it would be fine for a night. We could see it was an old motel but reviews made it sound do-able so we checked in and went to have dinner. Got back to the room: it had old furnishings and a rickety chair-but we were there to sleep; threw...

Everything was as described. No problems. Staff was very friendly. We will definitely be back. I must admit we were hesitant about stay based on some reviews we read but I'm very glad we gave it a chance. Pool was open and very clean. Only thing I would change was adding a breakfast.

Ok how on earth did this hotel get a 4 star review is way beyond my understanding. This hotel was in very poor condition. Example: carpeting stained and dirty , lighting in room was so low you could not see at night when light were on. Bath room tiles were cracked, towel racks missing, bathroom window would not lock, linens...

Hubby and I went to Gatlinburg for our 30th. We were extremely pleased with Mtn House Motor Inn. Clean, comfortable, convenient to everything, and cool (air worked great in 90+ degree weather)!! Yes, the rooms could use a little updating but were very nice overall. Shower head is low, but great water pressure and constant supply of hot water. Nice,...

Needed towel bars for towels. Free breakfast would have been nice. Was ok for the money. Comfortable. A/Christian worked very well. Quite, family oriented hotel. Friendly gentlemen at the desk. No street noise.

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...
