Discover The Sidney James Mountain Lodge
Now Gatlinburg as we have mentioned multiple times before has tons of hotels to select from and this makes it hard for you to figure out where to stay at. I know that we are looking at all the different hotels in the city and in this post we are going to cover the Sidney James Mountain Lodge. This way you can start to make a proper choice on which location you should be booking to guarantee that you select the right hotel to stay in. Without this, you could have some problems in selecting the right place and then you could be disappointed and think that Gatlinburg is known only for the mountains, instead of the beauty the town holds as well.
The Sidney James Mountain Lodge is a place that is an older and independent location, but that should not turn you off from the location. In fact, this is a location that does have 3 pools for you to enjoy. Two of these pools are seasonal and outside, but they do have an indoor pool that has a tunnel that will make it fun for you and your kids. Not to mention in the indoor pool their is a hot tub that is located near the tunnel as well, so you can enjoy your trip and watch your kids in the pool while staying warm. The Sidney James Mountain Lodge does have quite a bit of parking available as well, so you do not have to worry about trying to find a parking space. The on site restaurant, though, does have a limited selection of food and in most cases could be considered more of a location that would be the hot dog type of stands, but has a more expanded menu.
On the downside of the Sidney James, the walk into town can be rather long and downhill as the location is a brisk 14 minute walk from the aquarium, but going back to the location it is all uphill and that means you will definitely end up getting your workout. A common complaint is the property seems to have some neglect issues in regards to the pool and hot tub being cleaned on a regular basis, but also with the overall maintenance of the location not being kept up properly for the age. So this basically means a lot of the rooms need to be updated to guarantee they reach the level of travel people would expect to see.
