Family-owned Gatlinburg hotel on a peaceful mountain stream
The Sidney James Mountain Lodge has been family owned and operated for three generations. The Gatlinburg hotel is located just off the Parkway overlooking a peaceful stream and is next to Mynatt Park. Most of the 180 rooms have private balconies, and there are two cozy cabins. The hotel is within walking distance to shopping and sightseeing. There are three pools -- one indoor, one outdoor and one small pool for children -- and a poolside cafe offering breakfast and lunch and non-alcoholic drinks for reasonable prices.

Awesome pool

We had booked another hotel but fell through. We saw this online and booked as a cheap alternative. I loved the location and the swimming pool was fantastic. For the price this stay was just what we needed.

peaceful weekend getaway

Didn't get what I paid for. Reserved a queen bed and got two full size (too small for me and my husband). Employees were very friendly.

Great Location

The location is just a short walk to downtown Gatlinburg. The staff are very friendly. The price is good. The rooms could use some renovation as the beds are not the most comfortable and the rooms are not the neatest.

Good for the price but not 3 star hotel

The location was longer from town that I expected. Very outdated for the times. The heater was real loud. For the price though is wasn't bad.
