Travel Blogs from Gatlinburg
... Memphis TN. This is a short leg, only about 5 hours in transit before the next anchorage. Tonight the plan is to go to the Grand Ole Opry and see Crystal Gayle and some other country folks. I'm a bit concerned ...
After DC we hired a car from Knoxville and headed to the Smoky Mountains in Tennessee. We stayed in a town called Gatlinburg and the only way I can describe it so that everyone understands.... It's like being at Disneyland without the rides but all the attractions and fast food restaurants that you could think of. It had so many mini golf places, Ripley's believe it or not attractions, cars from movies, old fashion ...
... awake by the time it was done and I stayed that way worrying about the snakes some more, and whether the mice might chew through something important, and how ****** I’d feel tomorrow if I didn’t get some sleep!
Dawn woke me. I knew it was dawn not because of the light, but because the birds had started singing. I lay around for awhile and then decided to change out of my sleeping clothes while Toby was still in his hammock. I had my shirt off and was about to put on ...
... take a fake shower near the top.
This one was still a little of a climb but much less torturous. There were tons of people at the top waiting for their Kodak moment behind the falls so we joined the queue. Got our romantic snaps and Chris got a quick head cool off.
Then we descended a steep bit near the river/falls and dipped our bods. Chris made a ...

How wrong was I. This was by far the hardest hike me and Leslie had ever done. I think it might have been the hardest thing i have ever done. The 4 miles to the falls was just one long uphill climb, we were at 3000 feet so the air was thin and seemed to be in short supply. Two miles in me and Les looked like we had been caught in a rain storm (Two sweaty cats). All the while M and L appeared to be skipping along without ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Johnson's Inn Gatlinburg
Wonderful place to stay!!!
My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary. It was such a wonderful vacation. The rooms are very clean and affordable. Very peaceful, and great for families. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Just a short walk to the heart of Gatlinbug! We will never stay anywhere else but Johnson's Inn when we visit Gatlinburg.
Just got back from our summer vacation...we stayed at Johnson's Inn after reading the reviews on trip advisor....all reviews were right on the money! The location is perfect...right off the main street and far enough to be away from the noise. The breakfast is good, nothing fancy but plenty.....bagels, toast, cereal, juice, oatmeal, grits, muffins, coffee....the lady running the breakfast is always moving, replenishing items and getting anything you might need, very helpful....and we left a tip at the end of our stay. Check in was smooth and we even checked out movies for our 3 year old who loves watching Disney movies at bedtime....the only downfall is the pool. It is very small but we were always on the go so didnt mind not having a large pool. Everyone is very helpful...the hotel is older but clean and plenty of towels provided after every cleaning. We stayed in a 2 room suite for only $94 per night on saturday and $72 through the week....now i know personally why Johnson's Inn is rated #1! Will definitely stay here again and again!
My family and i spent 3 nights @Johnson's Inn. We requested ajoining rooms because my sister-in-law and neice came with us. Check-in was a breeze, clerk was very friendly. I was also very please with ours rooms, very clean. Cont. breakfast was good as I as every had at any motel that I've stay at. We have been to Gatlinburg, 4 times.
We always stay @ Johnson's Inn and when we go back, I plan to stay there everytime.
Thanks for making our vacation a better time. George
Million dollar view
We have stayed at Johnson's Inn, at least two times each year for the past twenty years.
Never disappointed. Friendly, caring staff. Their view of the creek flowing by is well worth the trip.
Great for Families
My husband and I stayed May 5 & 6. The room was clean and the staff was helpful.
Their location is perfect because they are in the center of town close to all the attractions.
We had never stayed there before but were suprised at how low rate of our room for the weekend espically in downtown Gatlinburg.We have already made reservations to stay there again this summer when we will bring our 3 kids to Dollywood.A trolly runs by the hotel and this will cut back on driving and save money on gas.I have nothing to bad to say about this hotel.I just didn't know it was there and would have been staying there sooner and more often.
We love Johnson's Inn
I chose Johnson's Inn because I have been reading a lot of positive feedback about it so I told my husband that I wanted for us to try it for our honeymoon.
We went there last Monday ( April 17, 2006 )and went back here in kentucky last thursday (April 20, 2006 ). We are very pleased about the room and the staff are the best staff ever especially the guy who assisted us when we got lost at pigeon forge..hahaha because we got too much excited that we wanted to leave the car immediately and just go shopping ang play miniature golf..
Anyway this coming July we are going back there again with our children and to all of u who wanted a good accomodation and affordable rate at Gatlinburg I think JOHNSON'S INN is the best place to be.
Nice place to stay
Our church group stayed there and it was wonderful.
We were close to restaurants and all the shopping our feet could take.The location is in the center of town and all the attractions were within walking distance.
I am going to suggest to our group leader to stay there next year as well.
Zion Baptist Church
We stayed in the suite overlooking the outside creek
and road. It was near the office. Great room, nice
people, continental breakfast was ok but could have
had 1-2 more nice items, and the location is awesome!
I'd recommend staying here if you want to walk around
and shop Gatlinburg. It's a fun walk to town, along
the creek, near out of the way coffee shops, and
I will return!
We just returned from a weekend trip and stayed at Johnsons Inn in the creekside deluxe room.The room was large with personal ice maker,bar with bar stools,microwave plus gas fireplace.The location can't be beat, just cross the street and you are at The Village shopping area.The rate was very reasonable with the room very clean and quiet.There was a con't. breakfast that we didn't go to as we love Log Cabin Pancake House and can't pass it up.Staff was very friendly and we recommend it.
