This place is EXACTLY what you think of when you hear classic Gatlinburg motor lodge! We stay here every time we come to Gatlinburg, which is usually 2-3 times a year. Some would call it dated, but to me, it's like going to Grandma's house! They have updated the rooms with new counter tops, flooring, etc. The whole place is...

Ok, folks, let me just get this outta the way first. I you are looking for lavish accommodations, you'd prolly be better off at Park Vista or Hilton Garden Inn. If your into the more quintessential Gatlinburg experience, then this place could be for you. It's a motor lodge, not a big hotel. The décor reflects this. But it's well...

Me and my boyfriend had decided to stay here during Valentines Day Weekend. Even though our experience here was decent, the information we found online about this place was extremely misleading. It made it seem as if Sidney James was right on the strip. This is not true at all, in fact you have to walk a good distance to...

This hotel is also in a great location. We have stayed here a couple of times and love it. The staff is friendly and quick check in (unless they're busy but it's not too bad).. The rooms are clean and definitely well stocked. Now, they don't have a "breakfast" like most hotels, but they do have an on site cafe'....

It was a nice, clean room. When we arrived they had no record of our reservation but they figured it out. It was too far away from town for me. But if you don't mind walking it is a good value. We won't stay here again due to the location but other than that it was a nice place.

I had planned a very romantic weekend w/my wife and we were VERY impressed, we were floored on how huge our room was when we walked in especially at such a great price. It had a great view from the balcony, beautiful fireplace w/a sofa bed, chair and coffee table w/a king size bed facing the fireplace,2 rocking chairs on...

The Sidney James Mountain Lodge is close and convenient to the heart of Gatlinburg. While the rooms were outdated and not pristinely clean, the price is right and the location is lovely. Even though we went in the winter season, the indoor pool with jacuzzi and sauna were available to us and delighted my kids. The staff was very friendly...

We are checking out today, came up for a weekend getaway from Atlanta. I found a great deal on Groupon and based on other teviees , we chose this place. This hotel is older and a little outdated but has great amenities. Our king suite is like a small apartment with a fireplace, jacuzzi and small living area. Our bed...

Sidney James Mountain Lodge is a really great place. Needs some paint to freshen it up but thats about it. Over look the paint and you've got huge king suites(fireplaces,jucuzzi tubs, private balconies), big indoor pool with hot tub and swim through cave, kiddie pool, very large outdoor pool. Staff were very friendly and helpful, rooms were clean, and the...

We chose to stay here after having stayed at the Green Valley in Pigeon Forge, their sister hotel, and loved it. This hotel was an older property but very nice. It was in a great location, close to all of Gatlinburg's attractions but still far enough away from the constant traffic. The staff were very friendly and made you feel...
