If you decide that you dont want to be right in the action of downtown Gatlinburg you may be interested in this hotel. I would say its a good mile from down town, its walking distance but you better beileve after having to walk back up hill for a mile you are exhasted. If you like quiet you will want to stay in the courtside part of the hotel, The rooms are big and the beds are comfy but the odor of former guest smoking is horrible (not to mention you take the smell with you home in your clothes and bags) and the rooms are so out dated. If you book on courtside and you get a room on the top floor you will be walking to your room from one of two stairways let just hope your room is not on the end like ours was. In the courtside part of this hotel you feel like you dont even belong with the main Sidney James Hotel when they say its across the street .... its across the street. The courtside I would give a C-. If you have kids you would enjoy staying in the main hotel, this is where the indoor pool and big outdoor pool is, also there is a cafe. The Jacuzzi that is by the indoor pool had some type of green alge stuff growing on the handle and the pool inside was real cloudy, but this side of the hotel seems to be keep up alot better than the courtside. I am not sure we will stay here again when we go back.
