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.
The Sidney James Mountain Lodge is located just off the Parkway on a mountain stream. The Gatlinburg Convention Center is three blocks away and Mynatt Park is next to the hotel. Gatlinburg attractions such as Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies are nearby.
The poolside cafe serves breakfast and lunch basics, while non-alcoholic hot and cold beverages are available.
Rooms options at the Sidney James Mountain Lodge include double rooms, king rooms and Jacuzzi suites with extra space. Courtside rooms open to the pool and some are pet-friendly (fees apply, call for details). King rooms have seasonal wood-burning fireplaces. There are two cabins available for rent, both with private patios for cookouts. Wi-Fi Internet access is free.
An outdoor pool entertains Sidney James Mountain Lodge guests in the summer, while an indoor one, plus hot tub and sauna room, pleases in the cooler months.

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.

Review of Sidney James Mountain Lodge
Oct 25, 2010
It was a Good Stay
The hotel was very relaxing and enjoyable for the short length of time I stayed(Just to get away from home). The room was very clean and the staff was very friendly. The thing that annoyed me was the shower did not stay hot long enough, and the
phone line had a lot of static. This trip was okay, but it could have been just a little better.

Long walk from hotel
If you stay in Gatlinburg, I would suggest going to the Moutain Mall as one of your shopping stops, also for children as well as yourself, go to Ripley's Aquarium and the museum, depending on where you stay it may be a long walk, but walking beat payong $5 for parking anyday :)
