"So close to everything"

The staff was so pleasant. This motor inn is well kept, a 3 minute walk to downtown Gatlinburg, and very friendly. A great value! We will be staying here again.

"average accommodations good service"
February, 2015
It was an okay place to stay for an inexpensive getaway with my small children. No complaints and lower rating is only because the hotel is a bit dated, but for the price it is a good value!

"Awesome time"
February, 2015
I took my two sons and I to this place and it was unbelievable. We had a great time with an unbelievable view of Tennessee. It was very close to everything and the staff was very friendly. Overall I'm definitely giving this a 10!

Tip: When they say your check in time is 3 PM they mean 3 PM. Which is good because it means they take their time to get the room clean and ready for you.

"Another great stay"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

My husband planned a last minute trip for us over Thanksgiving weekend and we were a little disappointed that they did not have a room both nights but really excited we were able to stay Saturday. Very clean and great location. They allowed us to check in early which was great because we had stayed somewhere else the night before. For the cost of a room and the location you can not go wrong. The staff is friendly and room is clean.

Great location to downtown Gatlinburg. Easy access to Cades Cove. Two sightings of mama bear and 2 cubs. Very friendly staff. Room clean and spacious. If you get a chance I highly recommend Apple Barn restaurant and store in Pigeon Forge.

My husband and I stayed at Mountian House Inn October 27-29. We stayed in a room with a king size bed. It was spacious and clean. The bed was firm but comfortable. Don works at the front desk and he is wonderful! Very kind, funny and gave us great recommendations for places to eat and things to do. We already reserved a room for our next trip.

"Great Gatlinburg Value"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed October 11, 2017
Stayed the first weekend of October for a short getaway. I actually realized while there that my first stay at the Mountain House was thirty years ago...WOW! Although the faces at the front desk have changed over the years, the values are still the same. Many new and sparkly properties are making appearances in Gatlinburg right now- and with them comes big prices as well. You visit Gatlinburg for the charm and character of the city and there are very few places to stay that have maintained those same attributes. Mountain House has. Same old world charm, friendly staff and familiar surroundings. Always clean, rooms stay updated, and great wifi! Perfect location- easy to get in and out if you know the back roads. Although they don't do breakfast, the coffee is always fresh...and besides...who would want to compete with the Pancake Pantry or the Donut Friar anyway? Here's to thirty more years together!

The hotel rated high on a web site which is why we booked it. It rated 8.3 but I would give it a 4. The room was very dated. The sheets were old, and one had a hole in it. The rug was dirty and there were cobwebs in the corners. The room could have used a good dusting. The bathroom is very tiny, and it took forever for the hot water to get to the room. If I had paid $50 for the room I would have given it a 7, but there was no way it was worth the money I paid.
