First of all never use booking.com they messed up our room but the staff was very nice and helped us out and did get us a room. The rooms are in need of an update and the Internet is terrible. The pools and hot tubs are the best I have seen very nice and well kept pools. Rooms are needing... More

We all had fun in this place. Close enough to all the attractions, shops and restaurants but not too close that there's a lot of traffic noise. Love the pools. The indoor one, the pathway are very slippery though and a little cold but the hot tub pool made up for it. I'll suggest to use a different tiles. I... More

It is not a Hilton, but this is what I paid for. The room was a little dated, and smelled musty. There was a refrigerator, coffee maker, hair dryer, but no microwave or iron and ironing board. If you are staying for awhile, the house keepers will change your towels and empty the trash, but do not make the beds... More

Clean rooms; great indoor pool; nice and quiet location. The front desk staff is great and very accommodating. We've been staying here for years and my husband FINALLY got to see a bear! His excitement was great!

4 years in a row coming to smokey mountains. First year cabin but too pricey. Next 2 years was motel 6 which was a straight dive and please stay away. This year Sidney James. It's a great price, grounds are kept up, close to attractions. Only cons would be no microwaves in rooms and floors could be a little better... More

June 14-17 we stayed at the Sidney James Mountain Lodge. What fun we had! The room was fine a little out of date but it worked for us. We had our little dog and needed a place that he could be in while we went out to show our grand daughters Gatlinburg. The house keeping lady was a joy and... More

Let me just start by saying, I don’t really write reviews, but in this case I feel like I have to share our experience with all the parents out there and all the Gatlinburg visitors that are considering staying at Sidney James Mountain Lodge. Me and my husband, we are newly parents of a beautiful 3 months old baby-girl. We... More

This place needs a renovation considering how much they charge. I had an ant problem that maintenance came to fix twice. The ceiling, walls and fixtures are cracked and falling apart or jot working. The room is quite large but the bathroom is very small. A call to the front desk went unanswered. When I did make it down to... More

This place was nice. It's not a home away from home but, it was nice. We had 2 issues in which the front desk solved right away. This place has a nice pool inside with a small toddler friendly area as well as a jacuzzi. They have towels at all of the pools and the staff is very friendly.
