This was the only room in town available for our first night. When we got there we asked if the room was available for the entire week. The staff was extremely helpful to make it happen. It is a older hotel that hasn't been updated. We weren't in the area to stay in the room however. It didn't have a...

We checked in and the gentlemen at the front desk was very courteous (not Joe). The maintenance man was friendly (we will get back to that) but that's about it. Our room blasted us in the face with smoke. Not just a "hey someone might have been smoking in here", but like a dozen chain smokers hiding under the bed....

I booked this after i found they had a deal on groupon. I had looked at over 40 hotels and this was in the running because they had an indoor pool for my kids. I read mixed reviews and thought I could handle it for a few days if it turned out not to be so great. I called and...

Weregot placed at the Sidney James Mountain Lodge through a Time Share presentation company we only had to pay $25.00 total for the 2 nights. They stuck us in a room with 2 double beds (so my husband and I couldn't even sleep together at night.) Then I saw that they had Cockroaches! Eww! Also no free breakfast, the parking...

After checking in to room decided if restaurant was like room we would pass on. You basically sat on the floor on chair and sofa they were so worn. Bathroom light on first...

I should write more reviews - positive reviews for the places that we stay at that are great. I've never stayed at a place as bad as Sidney James. Rooms are either "Court side" or "Creekside". We were court side - which means, we were across the street from the main building. #1 - we walked into the room and...

We stayed a week in early October while in town for a Craft Show. We knew the Inn was old so that was no surprise. The room was large and very clean. The beds comfortable and my wife loved the shower. We had a VERY small balcony over the river that we really liked. The maid service every day with...

We should have stopped elsewhere: somewhere where the terrible reviews didn't outnumber the excellent reviews. Friends told us not to stay here. Too bad we chased the price. I almost didn't bother to write this, but that would be unfair to those from "the outside world." Maybe we are just spoiled in New England. This is no lodge, it's a...

The website pictures/room descriptions it not what we got at all. The room smelled musty and mildew. We had a late check in and we could not go to another room since it was full and the surrounding motels were as well. I felt the need to sleep in a Hazmat suit if I could have. I hated that my...

I like the hotel for the price. Nothing fancy but my room was clean and the staff was nice. my husband and I could tell that the hotel itself needed some general repairs. We had an evening where the fire alarm went off for no reason and we could not get it to stop. I called the front desk and...
