Found a dead roach on the night stand. The sink had not been washed. The carpet was dirty. Also, we had a room on the 3rd floor and there is no elevator. We left shortly after check in and did not stay.

Travelling with a senior can be difficult. Arriving in Qualla late - without reservations - but with two tired and cranky people being much more so. After visiting 2-3 motels, we took a room at the Cherokee Lodge and found it friendly and convenient to the casino and local sites of interest. The staffers we met were outgoing and informative....

We have stayed here numerous times while visiting Harrah's Casino. It is clean, easy access, and reasonably priced. I can't say anything negative about this resort. We love this place. Friendly staff and convenient for what you go to Cherokee for....the Casino. Give this place a try and you will not be disappointed at all. Also pet friendly. It is... More

After not being able to stay over another night at Chestnut Inn we were booked through Harrahs here. We arrived early around 12:30 and they completely accommodated us with a early check in and side by side rooms. The rooms were nice but the floors could've been cleaner. No breakfast but location is prime with a gas station next door... More

We stayed one night only. Upon arrival the receptionist "Kane" was very nonchalant and treated me as if I was a bug on the wall. They had no elevator and my wife and I were given a room on the top floor (3). I am 66 years old with not to good legs. The power went out over the whole... More

Had 2 rooms for 2 nights. Check in was easy, the gentleman there was very nice, friendly. The rooms were average rooms, nothing special about either one. There were clean except for the carpet, it was worn and dirty. No fridge or microwave.

The motel is conveniently located near Harrah's Casino and downtown Cherokee. The staff was very friendly and went out of their way to be helpful. Our room was very clean with comfortable beds. We stayed during the July 4th holiday and were able to see the fireworks right from the parking lot! We would definitely recommend this motel to anyone... More

We were in Cherokee about June 15th or so, and decided to stay at the Cherokee Lodge. The rooms are nice and clean, and it is very convenient to a lot of things to do there. And by convenient, I mean about 150-200 yards. Anyway, we had trouble with the brakes on our car on a Sunday just before leaving... More

My wife and I love Cherokee for the convenience everything, to include dining, lodging, wildlife and the experience of the Eastern Band of the Cherokee tribe, and of course the views of the great Smokey Mountains. When vacancies were hard to find, we were directed to the Cherokee Lodge and ended up with a very nice suite, clean pool and... More
