Quite nice hotel Lots of hiking and waterfalls to see great driving roads around . Good breakfast . The staff was friendly and helpful. It was a nice stay would consider again. It's a good option from the crowds of Gatlinburg or pigeon forge.

Most people visit Cherokee for the gambling, but we were there to learn about the Cherokee Indian culture. The hotel was close to the outdoor drama, and Indian village and appeared reasonably priced. Hotels in this area are very overpriced, I'm assuming, because of the casino. Comparatively, the Chestnut Tree Inn seemed a good choice. The room was somewhat run... More

It is a motel with cigarette butts in the hallway. Everything has a cheap and not clean feel. The rooms are very old needs updating. The staff is rude an unhelpful. Would stay at Hampton, Holiday Inn Express or Microtel next time

We stayed at the Chestnut Inn for three nights recently. We happened to choose the weekend that the Vietnam Vets came together on their motorcycles. Since the motel has two separate buildings (one sits higher on a hill), the staff kindly moved us to the higher building, which was a quieter area of the hotel. (Let me just say that... More

The hotel staff was very courteous and accommodating. The pool looked very inviting but I did not bring a swim suit.The breakfast at the hotel was buffet style and offered a good... More

The Hotel was a very nice place. The beds were soft to sleep in. The breakfast was outstanding. The people that work there are super nice. The only thing was my air conditionor did not work good. The front desk people would come around and ask us if we needed anything,
