Very helpful staff, clean rooms, close to everything, but the best part was the breakfast buffet! The only small negatives were the on again, off again wifi reception and the older TV. But as a comped room I would stay here again...the positives definitely outway the negatives!

The rooms need to be updated! They are old and worn looking. A little more attention to cleanliness would also help. The free breakfast was good. It was way above the usual motel free donuts and cereal type food. The lobby is decorated nicely and the service was friendly.

Purpose of our trip was to take the grandkids on a train ride at Bryson City. This location was perfect in that it is a 15-minute drive from the Chestnut Tree Inn and also an hour away from Gatlinburg.

For the money this is a great place to stay in Cherokee. The breakfast buffet was great. Very close to the casino and an hour from Gatlinburg, TN. There is a lot around this area to see and do. The staff was extremely nice and helpful.

When I booked the reservation with the casino, I tried to look quickly at reviews before excepting the location. Seemed ok and we stayed one night due to no compted rooms available this weekend. I agree with the review about locking your room. We stayed in the upper building, which looked like another motel they had taken over. Rooms open... More

From Vivi & the girls at night to one of the kindest older gentleman you... More

Chestnut would have received five stars from me but we had an incident and if everything else wasn't so great the incident would have earned it 1 star. Room was comped by Harrahs so we went into the stay with a positive attitude LOL! Room was immaculately clean no dust, hair,dirt or trash in the room. Sheets were fresh and... More

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
