We were in an older section across the street from a newer section of the hotel. It needed an upgrade. Paint was chipping. Bathtub had a constant leak...overall dingy appearance.

3/5

The indoor pool was nice. The location was great. The rooms were extremely dated and not overly clean. Tile cracked in shower and fixtures leaky. There were not enough parking spaces for the number of guests. Had to park across the street and behind a dark building were.we could not see our car.

5/5 Excellent

My family and I (2 adults/2 kids), had a fantastic time staying at Sidney James. We stayed here last year too, but this year we stayed on the creek side. The stream was amazing.

3/5

Drawers were all broken. The balcony wasn't even big enough for a single chair. Young children running crazy in pool area. Bed was literally so hard the floor may have been softer! The room set was odd which is not a plus or minus .... However, it seemed clean. The only front desk person we saw was nice. Did have clean linens and soap for shower.

Stayed 1 night in Oct 2019
