Booked a queen suite for 1 night. Checkin went great. Asked about restaurants they recommend but they had no clue, no suggestions other their own by pool. 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...

Just FYI not Ritz, but nice older hotel. The people at front desk were very friendly and I liked the fact they had christian music playing in lobby. Our room was very clean. It does need some updates but I can deal with a little older hotel for price and cleanliness. It did have refrigerator and coffee pot, but no...

Loved the creek side room, awesome indoor pool & hot tub! Will definitely be back! We live nearby and were looking for an overnight child friendly getaway. The indoor pool is very large and also has a cafe next door.

We traveled to Gatlinburg for the Craft Fair and to visit with my brother. The hotel was near the convention center. The bathroom was small and had very old fixtures. The sheets on the bed were ill-fitting and I discovered several insects; one was a spider, the other I killed before I determined its species. It did have a hot...

Met some friends in gatlinberg for the weekend and rented a cabin. Our family wanted to stay an extra night to see my sister who just happened to be in town so we booked a room at the Sidney Mountain Lodge. I've stayed in hotels 10-12 times a year for the last 30 years and never given up on a...
