I was a little hesitant about staying here because of the reviews and bad photos but it was really nice I have no complaints. We received a free night because of Casino promotional coupon but I would pay to stay as well. The free breakfast buffet was really good they kept fresh hot food on and it was clean overall... More

We got this room as a comp through Harrah's as they had no vacancy. Listen, this is a two or three star hotel and based on that rating I think it's just fine. We were in Cherokee to ride motorcycles and gamble. (The casino is 2.5 miles away, cab fare was a ridiculous $20.). The beds are comfortable, the AC... More

The room was very comfortable and ac worked great. The only problem I had was the fact that 2 big lights were out in the parking lot. As a solo female traveler, that made me feel uncomfortable. It also have outside corridors. I prefer inside. Didnt try the breakfast. May stay again if I have a partner travelling with me.

The hotel was pleasant nice service folks but the rooms were run down and the very bright lights shown in the windows as there were no curtains but sheers in the room. There for no privacy. Also free breakfast with fake eggs just does not do it for me.

The reviews terrified me....but not bad at all! The best bang for your buck! Quick getaway type of place. Breakfast was not bad....best free breakfast I have ever had at any hotel, hands down!! Staff was friendly.

Stayed at the Chestnut Tree Inn and the staff was unfriendly, poor customer service, no manager on duty, general manager never returned my phone call, front desk manager never returned my phone call either. Rooms were very nasty, place is unsecure a well. Wouldn't recommend anyone to stay at this hotel ever.

We were comped a room by Harrah's Casino Cherokee. We were disappointed at the lack of availability for their main hotel, but had limited choice if we wanted a room that night. Despite the lateness of our arrival, the staff accommodated our needs as if it was during the day. Check in was fast despite being confirmed outside their facility.... More

My husband and I stayed in Gatlinburg for several days and decided to spend our final night in Cherokee. 441 was closed for snow, and we had to go around. Not knowing how long it would take, we were early. And exhausted. We stopped by the hotel and asked what the earliest we could check in was, and were told... More
