Passports Arrive!

Well it's the first day being temporarily unemployed. Feels weird knowing I won't be going back to the hospital to work. Got a lot accomplished. My passport arrived finally. We got the hitch installed and the trailer reserved. We got to spend the morning with sweet friends and their 12 horses and numerous cats. Had a blast feeding carrots and apples to the horses. I'm sure going to miss these wonderful ...

Tennessee and North Carolina

... to let them bicker and not let it ruin our trip. We passed Mammoth National park but time would not allow us to stop. The hills were beautiful as we entered North Carolina! That would be our 6th state so far! We drove through tunnels through the mountains that had signs to take our sunglasses off, ok, we did. We stopped at the welcome center for North Carolina and saw the Hells Angel biker gang South Carolina ...

Harrah's horrible service.

... they were trading shifts but i think they were just to lazy to come to their rescue. They were in a hot metal elevator burning up until someone came and pried them out. I would never go to this hotel again. We told them to give us more than fifty dollars but they refused.

Smoky Mountains!!

Took a family vacation to Gatlinburg, TN!! Don't have many pics on this computer but it's wonderful there. We stayed in a huge cabin. The scenery is out of this world. Pigeon Forge is great! We went to a local steakhouse, The Peddler, and it was awesome! They have great wine to choose from as well. We went for the 4th of July. It was beyond crowded but everyone had a blast, and we would go back in a heartbeat. ...

Day 7: Pigeon Forge is a kids' Vegas

A travel blog entry by elainesj on Jul 19, 2014

... br> It truly is a Kid's Vegas - flashy neon lights everywhere and bright aqua blue waterfalls in a never-ending strip of goofy golf and go-karts. Oh, and pancake places. Someone said it was like Niagara Falls on steroids. If anything, that was an understatement. If possible, always go out of your way to use secondary roads. The main strip is painful with a ridiculous amount of traffic lights - even if you are ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Sidney James Mountain Lodge Gatlinburg

    Deceived by brochure

    from

    We only lasted thirty minutes in our dark, dirty, and out-dated room.

    Our room looked nothing like the ones in the brochure. There were black handprints on doors, and sticky stuff on light switch I went to use. We ate the cost of that night and left immediately and went somewhere else. The so-called balconies were a joke.

    A great place to stay

    from

    We arrived at the Sidney James Mountain Lodge on 7/13/03 and stayed for 6 days - loved every minute of it. The desk staff and staff in the poolside cafe were exceptionally nice and accomodating. Inside and outside pools were very clean without the usual heavy chlorine pools that hotel pools tend to have. We had breakfast nearly every day in the poolside cafe which was quick with good food and very reasonable prices. My son loved playing in the creek! We will definitely be back!

    Hated It

    from

    This was the worst place I have ever stayed in. You could call it a Roach Motel or better yet a Spider motel. We even asked for our money back right after we saw the room and they REFUSED to give us our money back.

    What a dump!

    from

    The internet pictures made the Sidney James look very attractive when in fact the place is run down and filthy. I was so disappointed. They have a three-day cancellation notice and we were only staying 3 nights so we were stuck. I would not walk on the carpet after my shower because the carpet was sooooo dirty. With a lot of TLC the Sidney James could be nice but they obviously don't care about the upkeep. What a shame!

    Loved it!

    from

    We recently stayed two nights at Sidney James and we loved it! Comfortable and convenient and the staff was VERY friendly and helpful. We definitely hope to go back again!

    Great cottages and rooms!

    from

    We have stayed at the Sidney James 3 years in a row now, most recently in March of 2003. We have stayed in regular rooms, and rented a 3-bedroom cottage. The rooms are clean, the staff is friendly and courteous, and the rates are very reasonable. This appears to be a very family-friendly place to stay and is within easy walking distance to downtown. We will be back again next year!

    Not so great

    from

    Entire facility is a little out of date. Was disappointed with the balcony size, its shallow depth prevented chairs. The HVAC unit mounted over the door had bare wires hanging out. And the fireplace wasn't operable. Overall experience was okay, but next time we'll look elsewhere. Townsend.

    Great place to stay!

    This hotel is AMAZING!

    I highly recommend a small jaccuzzi suite...very nice for a low price....great staff friendly service...I have always and will continue still to stay at this hotel.

    Great place to stay

    from

    The people have always been very professional. The rooms are wonderful.....get a jacuzzi suite overlooking the creek if you can. I have always stayed here and will continue to do so into the future.

    Treated very rude and unprofessionally

    from

    we had reservations there 2 weeks ago on fri & sat night, we did not know until we checked in the room that was for "handicap". needless to say, with the way the room was adapted for such a person, we were quite inconvienced by it. upon calling the from desk to register several complaints, having to hold the shower head in your hand while showering, when heat was turned on there was an offensive odor, the smoke went off, the man who took the call was very rude and hung up on me. when we checked out a day early and went into the office to collect our refund for one night, no one in the office offered an apology, as a matter of fact they said nothing. we will never visit this hotel nor recommend it to anyone. sincerely, mitzi clayton
