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.

All the staff was very friendly. Anything we needed they did their very best to accomodate us. I would highly recommend this hotel. It is very clean & having both pools & a hot tub was great. We arrived late in the night & was still greeted with a
smile. My family & I come to the mountains atleast once a year. We will be using this hotel each time as long as the price is reasonable.
Good motel with functional perks - e.g., WiFi; indoor & outdoor pools; Cafe in house, tasty meals at reasonable prices; friendly staff; flat screen TV with 60+ cable channels; convenient Trolleys @ bargain (half dollar per person) stops in front
of hotel - stayed on schedule, safe easy to jump on and off at restaurants, sites. Trolley quick, saved parking for sightseeing in town; Also a short walk down street to restaurants and city convention center; nice ride up & down on tram ride up the mountain
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short walk from hotel
Nice sandwich menu for noon meals at Cafe; good breakfast buffet @ good price
