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... More

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... More

We kinda want to keep this one to ourselves and not share it with anyone. But that would not be fair. We opted for the hot tub suite which was far more than what we expected. The room had a very large hot tub microwave, fridge, a great shower, a deck that over looked the river absolutely fantastic!!! We kept... More

A bit more off the beaten pass than we anticipated, but a good place to stay. Even though the Gatlinburg Trolley DOES stop in front of the hotel, you can wait quite a while for it. We ended up walking the 3/4 mile to the main drag without seeing the trolley. We abandoned that idea and drove and parked instead.... More

Hands down after visiting Gatlinburg for over a decade with our church youth group and staying at many different hotels, cabins and lodges, the Sidney James Mountain Lodge is the best place we have ever stayed! The rooms were immaculate and the indoor pool was clean, just the right temperature and beautifully landscaped! The staff at the front desk and... More

This is a hidden gem. Staff is super nice and room really clean. Once Park Vista Hotel lied about their room rates I had to find other options. I'm so glad they did because I have found a place I will stay at everytime. Don't make the trip up the hill and pay more for the same.

I had a wonderful time staying at Sidney James. They gave my fiancé and I a complimentary upgrade to a beautiful room with a fireplace, which really made the trip special. The pool and hot tub area was amazing and so relaxing. Top all that with a warm and helpful staff, and rest assured that this is a great place... More

Location is good for the convention and walking to downtown Gatlinburg but the rooms are old and outdated. It is set up like a motel. I gave it an average rating as I am assuming it would be average for a motel type hotel but would rate less if comparing to say a Holiday Inn. The pool was nice for... More

A friend and I recently chose this hotel during a girl's weekend in the mountains. We were very pleased with the location, convenient to the Downtown area, the convention center and the Roaring Fork Scenic Nature Drive. Lee and Joe in the front office were most kind, personable and helpful to us assuring that our room was just what we... More
