    Sidney James Mountain Lodge, Gatlinburg
    The main part is really nice, I had my service dog with me and dogs are only allowed in one area of motel. It was across the street and the rooms could use some. The outlet behind table didn't work. A lot of the of the bath tub was chipped away. Could not connect with WI-FI at all. Every body had to have 2 pillows the second night because after the first night with 1very flat pillow,everybodys back hurt. Not sure how far back pictures were taken for posts but positive they weren't recent.

    Will be back!
    While the rooms could use a little updating, it was truly a great stay! The hotel is in a fantastic location, offers great amenities in the way of their incredible indoor pool and outdoor pool as well, and the staff were very friendly and helpful!
