My husband and I took took our 6 yr old grand daughter for spring break. The room was average and clean. The employees were very friendly except when we asked for extra pillows. They never showed up. The major dis appointment was the indoor pool. I assume it was being refurbished but we were never told. Although clean half of...

The Sidney James has always been our go to place in Gatlinburg. Not fancy, by any means, but cheap and just a short walk from the shopping district. Trolley also stops right outside hotel. Nothing better then sitting out on the balcony and listening to the creek rush by. Don't know if it was just a fluke but the best...

Price was good and room was nice size for the area. Included balcony which we use often. There is construction across the street so next trip I will ask for a room not facing the road. Pool was nice and used the sauna as well. Didn't interact with the staff to much but when we did they were pleasant!

This place was great to visit. My sweetheart and I stayed here while we were visiting Gatlinburg for our sister's birthday. The location was great. We could walk to nearly everywhere we wanted to go. The pools were a bunch of fun! And open very late. We spent the extra dollars to get a room with a river view. It...

We stayed in the pet friendly rooms which had an outside pool but to cold to use. the indoor pool was good. We did have a power failure but that was not the hotel's fault rather mother nature. the rooms were clean with refrigerator and hair dryer. the place is not brand new but it was very good and all...

Staff was friendly and helpful. Room was clean and had a nice private balcony. Jet bath was in adjoining room and was spacious for two people. Only downside was the bathroom needs updated and the gas fireplace gets turned off in April. Had construction going on out back so had noise in daytime. Close and walking distance to businesses and...

This is an old hotel that needs a makeover. When I checked out I told girl at front desk I was checking out because...

Never being here before, my wife and I chose the Sidney James Mountain Lodge to spend 5 nights. This is an older lodge and is being renovated. That certainly didn't bother us any. This lodge is also off the beaten path, but we didn't mind at all. It was a nice walk (approx 1/2 mile) to the main city, so...
