“Great accommodations and location”
Reviewed 1 September 2014

We normally stay at the hilton Park Vista when visiting Gatlinburg but for Labor Day weekend the cost was about 200.00 per night. A coworker recommended Jack Huffs and I am so glad. We were able to stay in a room that connected by balcony to our friends next door. The hotel was dated as people say but I prefer "vintage". Our room was impeccably clean each day and the staff so friendly. Definitely in great walking distance from everything. You can cut through the village and be right downtown in 2 minutes. The donut friar is a must do as it's close by. The beds were comfortable and it had flat screen tv's. The pool area was small but had a fun slide for the kids- it and the jacuzzi were never crowded as well. Great place to stay.

Room Tip: 208 & 209 on the second floor share a balcony and are convenient to access.

I have been staying at Huffs since I was a child now almost 30 years later I am creating more memories here with my own family. The pool and hot tubs are always clean and provide hours of relaxation. The rooms are comfortable and well taken care of. The staff is still all family and treat you as one which is hard to find with the franchises. Lastly value is key and this you can't find a better value given the 1/2 block proximity to the main Parkway(imo). So for your next stay give Huffs a shot.

Made reservations going by the reviews on here. The reviews are right...this place is very clean. Its in a great location. The pool is great...the kids loved the slide. Having 2 adults and 4 children its hard to find a hotel that we can all stay at without getting 2 rooms or getting an expensive "family" suite. Our room had 2 double beds and a sleeper sofa. Love having the 2 sinks....a must with 6 people. We had plenty of room. We are glad we found this place....we will definately be back!!

We have been going to this place for years. The room, pool and hot tubs are always clean. They provide pool towels. The hotel is very convenient to downtown gatlinburg, the aquarium etc. The people who run the hotel are always helpful and very friendly.

Jack Huff's is a friendly independent hotel. Therefore it is not as uniform as the chain hotels, but it is a bit dated. It is a five minutes walk away from the main drag what makes it a pleasantly quiet place.

Jack Huff's is in a great location. It is within a five minute walk to the Parkway, but most of the Parkway noise is avoided. I love the balconies and enjoy sitting there in the morning after returning from a long walk around town. As is mentioned in most previous reviews, overall, the property is very clean and staff are friendly. The pool is well maintained and the kids spent lots of time there, especially enjoying the waterslide. The other guests are quiet and respectful and I was never bothered by noise. Now the negatives: The air conditioner had a musty/mildew smell and I tried to sleep with it off most nights. The furnishings are dated, except for the flat screen television. The towels are not the best, i.e. rough and small. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and decided that the positives outweighed the negatives.

Jack Huffs is a very nice and CLEAN!!!! Pool is just big enough and the proximity to the strip is great. They do have some unique room types as well that are well suited for families larger than 4. There was one negative though - they don't serve Breakfast and there coffee is terrible.... So I just made the short walk to the Donut Friar!!!
