My stay at the Sidney James was excellent. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was very cozy and the service outstanding. Having a mountain stream right outside my window was awesome! It put me to sleep every night. This was my first stay at the Sidney James. It will not be my last! My thanks to everyone at the Sidney James. Had a great week of vacation. Looking forward to the next.

I can't believe they would rent out rooms that look this bad. The decor is from the early seventies, and has never been updated. the bed was broken down, and the only way I was able to sleep on it was because we wore ourselves out during the day. If this was my hotel, I would either remodel the rooms, or tear the pitiful excuse for a hotel down, and bury it.
I also had to kick the door to get the key to come out of the door lock. The only thing good about it is, the exercise you will get climbing up and down the hill in front of the hotel.

We had a creekside standard room- which we got at a great value, be sure to look for the stay 2 nights get one free on this hotel web site. My kids Love the indoor pool w/waterfall and their is also a jacuzzi. Also on site their is a cafe that serves breakfast and lunch right by the pool area. They also have a Outdoor pool but it wasn't open yet. They also have family rooms but none were available during our stay.

We recently stayed at the sydney james and truly enjoyed our stay! We will definitely be returning. The hotel was clean and the staff was excellent. The pool was truly a relaxing atmosphere along with the hot tub!! The creek side balcony brought this hotel to a close for us with a very high 1st impression.

We stayed there after getting a brochure 3 nights for $99.00...
room pretty small but clean..bathtub kinda of gringy though..
pool nice, but lighting bad and waterfall very noisy in pool area, windows could use cleaning, in winter dont count on trolley coming its not so you will be walking downtown..close to Outback but they just announe they are closing up..

if you can get an upgrade by creek its pretty good, but lots of nicer motels in area. but for 3 nights for $99.00 you cant beat it in winter..

My boyfriend and I stayed at Sidney James for three nights over Valentine's Day weekend 2005. The hotel is definitely outdated but was very clean. Aside from the ladybugs that somehow kept finding their way into our room..we were pleased. We had a jacuzzi suite. The tub was large and worked without any problems. The mirrored walls and naked Greek man statue (it looked like his head had been glued back on several times over the years)were a bit tacky but added fun to the room!! Our friends stayed in a standard room near the pool which was the size of a large closet but very clean. Overall, I would reccommend this hotel for the price and location its a good deal. It's a close walk to the best restaurants, night spots, sky lift, and the National Parks. Happy Trails!
