I usually stay here twice a year and have not been disappointed at all in 8 years. I was here for 4 days on my most recent trip. My Courtside room on this trip was fresh and nice with a fridge. king bed and a cozy back porch. Cable TV has a good selection of channels and internet is reliable, although not lightning-fast. It's located near the center of town but it is a 4-block downhill walk into town. Keep that in mind if you have limited mobility, because the walk back uphill can be tiring after a long day! I usually stay alone and use the SJ as a base for hiking. Many main trails are within a few miles of the hotel and it's an easy drive (or fabulous walk) to a dozen traliheads. I have also taken my family there several times in the past and we all give it a thumbs up! It's very quiet being a few blocks from the madness of downtown. The pool and sauna in the main lodge are nice and some of the premium rooms are exceptional. But for the best rates and overall ease of access, I would recommend the Courtside rooms. I have stayed at some 'iffy' hotels in Gatlinburg and some really nice, expensive ones. The SJ has all the good qualities travelers need with no unpleasant surprises. The off-peak rates make this motel a genuine bargain!
