Short and to the point. First time there, the staff was friendly. The room looked clean but the heating air unit put off a strong odor. We wondered why there was a can of Febreeze in the room. lol The phone did not work, neither did the plugs. There is free internet but it slows after every one gets on... More

The rooms are dated. The bed was very small and hard to me along with the pillows. My husband liked the hard bed. The room was clean but the dead bugs were in the light covers over the sink, very noticeable. It also looked as if they forgot to vacuum that day too. Breakfast is in a reasturant of the... More

Recently on way north we could not get a room @ Harrah's Resort @ Cherokee, NC...We found a room on the cheap at Chestnut Tree Inn just a very short drive away...Great time @ Harrah's and a sufficient quick breakfast buffet the next morning @ Chestnut. Everything was very clean about the Inn and we enjoyed a restful sleep.

Breakfast was incredible our waitress Katie, I think was her name, was very nice! If we ever stay here again it won't be during a holiday... More

The rooms were clean and a good value for the money. My only complaint was there wasn't a drink/snack machines on the second floor and it was on the far end of the building. Other than that, it's worth a stay.

Chestnut Tree Inn is one of the good hotels to stay at in Cherokee if you are coming through Harrah's and you can not get in the main hotel. The staff greet you with old fashion kindness. If you ask for something they try their best to meet your standards. Coming to the Chestnut over the past year, I will... More

Although from appearances this hotel seemed fantastic, it left us disappointed. There was not adequate parking for the amount of guests they were housing. Rooms are out dated and there weren't a lot of perks. Breakfast was good.

The rooms/hotel are a bit dated (I'm sure it's been remodeled at least a few times since it's start as a Holiday Inn in the 80's). The bathroom was very clean and the bed was good, too. The carpet should be replaced, but it did seem clean even though stained in places. The breakfast was fine since included (quite a... More
