This hotel is in a great location. Not far from the main attractions. Staff is very friendly! It does need some updates and looks aged. But besides that, my room was cleaned everyday! I didn't have to ask for anything the entire week because it was always in my room everyday! I loved the creek behind the hotel and the pool area.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back close to the creek have a nice view!

We had a very nice room with a small balcony overlooking the stream that runs behind the lodge. We didn't use the pool, or make use of the restaurant so can't help with those.
We would definitely go back and/or recommend the Lodge, as a matter of fact we already have!

This hotel was great. The room we had was super clean and very well maintaned. The staff was very friendly and extremely helpful. The greeted us every time we walked by the desk. There is a trolley stop right outside, which is great because the parking in gatlinburg is around $8. Tou can ride the trolley all day for 2$. We would stay here again. And we recommend that you staynthere as well.

Have went to this hotel many times and the staff has always been very nice. The pools have been great fun for the kids to play in and have been well cleaned each visit. The rooms have been clean for the most part but the hotel is getting age to it and could use some updates. Good stay if you have good coupons to save money! Fair warning.... if you are going to walk down to the strip the walk down is not bad but the hill back up will have you breathing hard!

Room Tip: Creekside is wonderful!

The staff of the hotel was very friendly. The lobby and pool area was clean. The room I stayed in was a double with a balcony (112), The security lock was broke, there was no microwave in the room, the wall paper in bathroom had a big tear in it, there was a big hair ball on the wall under the counter, the tub had a steady drip, the wall paper in the corner of the room was not glued down. The heater worked great, it actually got too hot in the room. The onsite cafe, has room for improvement and they need to update their menu, they didn't have things that were listed and they tired to sell us pie that they said had been in the case for a week because no one wanted them! They need new pillows, the ones they have are real thin.

When i was looking for places to stay, I kept coming across this lodge that I had never stayed at or heard of before. After checking a few other places and not wanting to pay outrageous prices, I went ahead and booked Sidney James. Loved the location and the creekside room we were given. Staff is very friendly and i loved that it was away from all of the tourist traffic. Will definetly stay there again!

Room Tip: ask for creekside rooms on upper floors
