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

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

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.

Came here for Valentine's day, the room was nice and very clean, just a basic hotel room. We picked this hotel mainly for the indoor pool but of course it was closed for maintenance.. 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
