Made reservations for Thursday thru Tuesday but on Thursday morning I called and informed them that I might not arrive until Friday. Told them I would pay for Thursday even if I didn't make it so they wouldn't give my room away. Arrived on Friday at 5:30 am and checked in. Discovered that the balcony door was left open and...

Stayed here yesterday (10-15-16) and it was horrible. Portrayed so much differently online than it really is. Expected a decent room but was less than enthused once the door opened. The room had a really bad odor to it...... and that's only the beginning. The room DID NOT stay cool. There was no microwave in our room. What kind of...

We have been asking since we arrived on Sunday to fix the security locks on our door. Leaving on Tuesday and still have not been fixed. We were offered another room at 7pm last night🙄 We will not be back!

We use to frequent Sidney James in the late 90's . I don't know what had happened but Never Again!! It was dirty and we were over charged. No wifi, let me correct...the wifi wouldn't work. It was awful.

Mold on the a/c unit. We were across the street from the main hotel and it's too far to walk to downtown. Old fashion and outdated. The room smelled and the curtains didn't close all the way. Definitely not staying here again.

I booked my trip thru AMEX travel and I arrived apparently AMEX had not communicated with this hotel. The man at the counter was very rude about it, saying that they dint take AMEX travel and I showed him my confirmation where I paid to stay there, he didn't care and took the next person in line...By the time I...

During my stay at oak tree I see a charge of $168 on my account. I contacted expedia and they said the company had placed...

This place was a scary throwback to the 70's. The blue carpet was ratty. The smell of mold and old smoke in the non smoking room almost knocks you down when you walk in. When we went in the bathroom there was a used towel hanging on the back of the door. The jetted king suite was large but that...

This is our third time here and it is the only place to stay. They have very friendly staff and everything is super clean. Will be back soon. We always get a creek side room with balcony. The pool area is fabulous and very clean. We enjoy staying here because it is off the main road and very quiet yet...

We got into town early and spent the night here before checking into condo rental for the week because it was cheap. The rooms are clean but not very pretty. The pool area is cool and the location is close to downtown without being right on the main road. Would recommend for a short stay or if on a tight...
