      My wife and I were quite pleased. Clean, quiet, close to Gatlinburg strip, yet on a road that bypassed the strip traffic, allowing easy access to the convention at Park Vista Hotel and Smoky Mountain Park. We paid 1/3 the price of other hotels in Gatlinburg!

      I was pleased with my accommodations. It is not a fancy place but it is clean and has a great location, very close to shopping and walking is on flat ground.You park right in front of your motel room. The area is extremely safe. It reminds me of the local mom and pop family owned motels that I stayed in as a child in the 50s and 60s. The staff is extra friendly and very helpful. They have two pools and both are heated and one is ready to use now, in April. I would stay again. Juli

      Clean, great value, American owned and operated, very quiet. I was pleased with the facility and operators in every way. If I wanted any more, I would have expected to pay a lot more. I will stay there again.

      The beds could have been a little more comfortable but they were ok&very clean

      The hotel was in a good location. To be one of the older hotels it has been kept up very well.

      The bed was hard as a rock. Also we were in 414 and it was on the street side so the sound of traffic made it pretty hard to sleep. Also about 2am the entire fire department was outside with lights flashing and sirens going. We checked out a day early.

      My husband and I went here for our 10th wedding anniversary. This was the PERFECT place! They went above and beyond everything that I ever expected! They knew it was our anniversary so on the outside side they even put Happy Anniversary Willie and Stephanie, we had the king jacuzzi suite, with fresh flowers from the staff for our anniversary. When I go back to Gatlinburg this the ONLY place I will stay. The room was beautiful and the location is central to EVERYTHING from downtown Gatlinburg to nature trails. This is the perfect fit for any traveler. I have never experienced a stay away from from home that even remotely compares to my stay at Mountain House Inn.

      I hated to leave, my only complaint!!!

      The bed was a little stiff but it was ok for just a few nights.

      Mountain House Inn was a great bargain for the money. We had great rates, and although there weren't many extras like a free breakfast, it did have the essentials like a coffee pot, an ironing board and iron, hairdryer, and ac in the room. It also had two pools and was within walking distance of downtown Gatlinburg. We'd stay there again in a heartbeat.

      Being staying there for years. Feels like home. Convenient to downtown.

      TV out of date. Remote did not match TV. Could not select closed caption which I need.

      Nice to have a fridge/freezer, microwave, and coffee maker. Very convenient to the convention center

      Rug was torn and shabby. TVs are old CRTs. The remote would not allow the sleep timer to function. Shower head is too low. Cleaning people did not always replace used coffee packets. Wi-Fi required you to log in several times a day.

      Loved the hotel. Was very impressed with location, price, cleanliness, and overall charm.even had a little back bathroom window overlooking the creek. The room was exactly what we were looking for and we will now be using this hotel every time we travel to the pigeon forge/gatlinburg area. Front desk manager was very kind and let us park there after check out to do some shopping. 2 thumbs up

      The bed was a little hard but we both woke up with no back pain.

      The location was very good. Within an easy walking distance to all the towns attractions. The walk back to the Inn is a slight incline when compared to other locations in Gatlinburg. Also, not close to main street traffic which is a plus when getting some sleep. Only a short drive to the Roaring Fork Park which is a must see.

      The Inn is a little dated, we stayed only two nights, the first night the towels were a little lets say on the small side. We did not say anything but the next day after returning to the room it was cleaned and we actual had regular size towels! Whom ever made our bed left the extra pillows from the other bed on the one we slept in which was greatly appreciated! We really didn't have much we didn't like.
