Overall, a cheap place to stay for a night. We booked a court-side room with two standard beds. Court-side evidently means across the street from the main hotel and pool with a view of a parking lot. First room, did not have hardly any heat and the door was warped so bad, you could feel air coming in. It was...

This place was a trip killer. Late night man at the desk was very rude,and on top of that we had to move rooms because there was a roach on the table and i refused to stay in there. I was very dissappointed all rooms i saw were nasty and i have nothing else to say.

This is my 2nd time staying at this hotel. It is a short walk to the main strip in downtown Gatlinburg. It has a nice pool area and hot tub, plus sauna room. The décor is a tad bit older as well as the buildings/rooms but I'm not that turned off just because it isn't "new". The price is fair...

We love the Sidney James! The staff makes you feel at home and the rooms are always very clean including the restrooms. We booked online through Priceline and got a creek side room with beautiful view. A nice Christmas made possible by Sidney James.

Had problem with the toilet staff gave me a new room without hesitation. Rooms are dated mattress need changing. But the room was clean. Staff was great. I think it's a little far from the strip but who doesn't need some exercise. Good room.

we booked our room with booking.com, which we will never use again.. they said we were getting a $200 room for $65 a night. Apparently they didn't tell the hotel which room we had booked cause that is not what we got. We called the front desk, told them what we were supposed to have, and they switched us without...

Stayed a busy weekend at Sidney James. Overall things were very good, not splashy, but good. Staff was great, they were more than happy to move our rooms after arrival due to a location issue. More than eager to help with any question or need. Will stay again.

I stayed with me family and the rooms smell awful with no hot water the staff was nice enough to move us from one room with mold and a bad smoke smell in non smoking room but I don't think I will be staying there anytime soon if ever again

The Sidney James is a great hotel for the money you spend per night. We had a great nightly rate and it is very close (less than a mile walk) to the center of the Parkway. If you don't like to walk though, this hotel probably isn't for you because as you return to your hotel it is a bit...

Although close to the main drag, this hotel is dated in structure and decor and is in desperate need of a major renovation. Very inexpensive and Staff was nice at check in but the rooms were subpar. Old bedding, weak plumbing, dated furniture, etc.
