Well, since we usually stay at the Cherokee casino, we were not very happy to say the least with our room. The pool was not open (closed for repairs till further notice) and there was no frig in the room (something most motels have). The carpet was very stained and there was dust/dirt around the baseboards of the carpet. We... More

Harrah's Cherokee Casino provided me two complimentary nights here. I was traveling with my kids, so I was very particular on where I needed to have my room at. The desk clerk was very helpful by showing me what rooms were available at that time. I choose the room where I was able to see my vehicle and didn't have... More

The casino in Cherokee provided two complimentary nights at a local motel. Not being high rollers, we were assigned rooms at the Chestnut Tree Inn. Our friends received rooms at the casino. Arriving earlier than check in time, we still were warmly greeted and given a room. Upon entering the room, I became a little disappointed. The room was certainly... More

This was our second free stay here. This hotel is older. The rooms are not the cleanest or put together well. There is nothing convenient within walking distance. The breakfast buffet is free for 2 adults per room which is a new policy. The breakfast buffet is one of the best breakfast bars I've ever seen. You can also pay... More

Glad it was free is right!! No mini refrigerator in the rooms, told three different stories about the refrigerators (not sure which one is true). Pool has mold around edges. Also watch were you sit outside as furniture is old.Sink drain and tub drain are slow to actually drain. Hair in corners of bathroom floor, gross! Beds were pretty comfortable.

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.
