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... More

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... More

If you have asthma or allergies this is definitely NOT the place to stay. Room was damp and musty. Offered a room one floor up that would be "further from the creek", which was the "cause" of the issue. But that room would be "somewhat damp also" also as it was "creekside". So wouldn't recommend.

Met some friends staying at the Gatlinburg Town Centre. This was right up the street and in walking distance to the main drag in Gatlinburg. I had a room facing the little stream behind the hotel. It was good for smokers like myself. And i even saw a mother black bear with three cubs in tow making their way down... More

We had a Nice stay, pleasant staff. Close to town. Cool indoor pool. At a fair price. We stayed late in the season and rooms could use a little maintenance but I am sure it will happen in the off season.

We booked our stay through groupon and stayed in the economy queen room. The staff were very friendly and the hotel was very clean. We enjoyed the indoor pool and hot tub, and ate at the cafe one morning, which was great. It's close enough to Gatlinburg if you don't mind walking back up the hill to get to the... More

I do not understand why people put down this hotel. The staff was awesome, room was clean and comfortable. I enjoyed the creek view off my balcony and the pool and hot tub area was clean and well maintained. It is not a fancy milionair mentality hotel but it is a wonderful and affordable place to enjoy Gatlinburg from..

The hotel is convienent to the main road but quiet. The trolly stop is in front of it. Although the rooms are old, we slept comfortably. Try to get a room in the main building; especially on the Second floor so that you can hear the creek!

We really enjoyed Sidney James Lodge. The rooms are nice and have a wonderful little balcony on the river. It's back far enough off the strip but still not a bad walk to all the excitement. The lodge has all sorts of amenities and things to do on site. The staff is super friendly as well. I would recommend Sidney... More

Motel was about a half mile from center of town. Nice pools. New construction going on next door. Room had a musty smell, but was generally clean and nice. Will try to stay closer to action next time.
