We recently stayed at Johnson's Inn in Gatlinburg. We were creekside on the end, facing the street. The room was clean but definitely rough around the edges. The laminate floor at the entry was coming up at the seams, walls above the shower and other places need sanding/puttying to fix dents and bumps (not just another coat of paint), outlet plate covers didn't fit well because the holes are too big in places, bathroom sink had no drain cover or stopper. I was afraid we would drop jewelry or something else in the sink and lose it. On the plus side, there was a microwave, frig and sink in the kitchenette and the bed was very comfortable (not hard as a rock). But the best part was the balcony facing the creek. It was well shaded with crepe myrtle and other trees. Very pleasant to sit and listen to the creek, people watch those on the sidewalk or read. Even had a squirrel entertain us in the crepe myrtle within 3 or 4 ft of us. The ac unit was on the balcony but even that didn't bother us. We could have cut it off while sitting outside. The location, a block or two from mainstreet, is great and is near the Pancake Pantry (our favorite breakfast eatery for 30+ years), the Village, the Aquarium, and Jose's Cantina. Desk clerk was very friendly. We did not have maids clean our room by choice, so can't comment on that. Johnson's Inn is not our usual place to stay but that end room made for a pleasant stay in a pinch.
