Oak Ridge, Tennessee

For a quick, cheap getaway hotel this fits the bill nicely. Good location, easy walk to downtown, fine beds, fine microwave, refrig, shower, etc. nothing fancy, it was clean, and a great price. I was more than please.

We've stayed here MANY times and with every stay, the experience has been fantastic. The staff are so very nice and helpful. They go out of their way to make sure your stay is a pleasant stay. I'd made my reservations online through another booking agency for this particular stay for 4 nights. When I called regarding another stay. After...

Like many hotels in Gatlinburg, this one is old. The hotel definitely screams "dated", but it was clean and the staff was friendly. The bathroom is tiny and the toilet is very low to the ground, so be aware. The location is convenient to downtown and the aquarium and our room had 2 fridges, so bringing snacks and drinks was...

Nothing fancy here, however, super location and super price. Shower head only about 5 feet off the ground in tub, other than that, everything worked, it was a little noisy from passing cars, not recommended for light sleepers. Served its purpose well.

I am a life-long resident of Sevier County. A friend recently visited me from Cincinnati as part of a business trip, and he invited me to stay with him. The motel is in a great location...close to shops and dining - no real need to mover the vehicle unless going out Highway 73 or to the Arts & Crafts Community....

We usually stay at Marriott brand hotels, but location of this motel was excellent. Very clean, with comfortable beds. With the location, we were one of the first to arrive at Smokey Mountain National Park, and avoided all the traffic. And, we were a block from all of the local shops and restaurants.

Spent a couple nights here this week. Loved it. We stayed in room 106. The location was great as you can walk into downtown without having to pay for parking. Staff is great! Check in has to be done by 10pm I believe, and checkout is by 11am. I would stay here again.

It's a clean basic place that meets all your needs at a very low rate!! I'd rather spend my money sight seeing/having a great time than at a fancy hotel that I will only sleep in basically. It is steps from downtown and you can catch the trolly at the end of the street. We really liked its proximity to...

We booked a last minute trip and stumbled upon this place. I was a little nervous because it was a low price in an ideal location...but we were pleasantly surprised when we arrived! It is located in the heart of downtown Gatlinburg, the staff was friendly and it was clean! Highly recommended!!

We have stayed at the Mountain House numerous times. The last three visits were in June of 2015, November 2015 , and March 2016. Each of the visits were for three nights. What we have noticed is that things have been progressively getting more slack. We've stayed next to the small pool behind the office these last three times. The...

I am sorry that you had trouble with housekeeping issues. They have started to work on the pools in the last few days. Without the pump to circulate the water, it does get nasty due to not being used during the winter. I promise the next time you stay that it will be clean. We are looking into different options...
