Our room has a nice veiw of the Stream, How ever, no In room Microwaves, and The free WiFi is terrible. Its only accessible half the time, and is really annoying when your kids want to watch movies or play online games. Price is reasonable, just dont expect much.

Love this hotel and have stayed here numerous times over the years but this was the last. Love the location of the place and it's one of the last reasonable priced hotels in gatlinburg but shower water was completely cold, ceiling tiles in shower were falling down, and indoor pool needed to be cleaned. It would be a nice place... More

Very friendly and helpful staff. They upgraded my room for no cost. My daughter loved the cave pool and the hot tub was relaxing. We definitely enjoyed our stay at Sidney James. We will return! Thank you for excellent hospitality.

The rooms were clean, the indoor pool was great and very kid friendly, the little cafe had good food and room service. We had a king suite and the only complaint I have is that th e shower never stayed one temperature. One time you moved it you were melting your skin off, the next you were in the Arctic.... More

We had booked our hotel on Trivago on a Saturday and arrived on Monday night. The staff was very helpful. Our rooms were simple and clean. The pool area had awesome temps in and out of the pool and everything was in working order. I really loved the fact that there is a heater in the bathroom. I found that... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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'.... More
