This was our first stay and we will definitely stay here again. Very clean , loved the pulsating shower head, and comfortable beds. Room had a small fridge. The staff was very friendly. Just a really good experience. The location was great just a short drive to the casino.

Very clean and would stay at again. Beds are firm but I like that. I'm really picky about pillows but my husband was fine with them. Very friendly and kind staff. Microwave and frig in room. Just wish they had the fave cleaning wipes and showed caps. Just a little thing but I always forget it. Can walk to a... More

The hotel was an older hotel that was under going a change to new ownership on our checkin. The staff was attentive and guest oriented. The rooms were a little dated, but were in the process of being updated. The room, including the bathrooms were sparkling clean. We enjoyed our stay. I would highly recommend, especially to those trying to... More

I booked this motel online because the weather was bad & I didn't want to have to drive all the way home. It is approximately 130 miles from my home. This is the 3rd motel in Cherokee where I have stayed during the past year. They accept the AAA or AARP cards for a discounted rate. Most motels these days... More

This hotel is clean and relatively up to date. Beds were not great, but weren't horrible either. Showers were good! Not old and run down at all. Seems like it's in a safe area. Hardees and gas station across the street and the entrance to the start of the BLUE RIDGE PARKWAY is less than a mile from the hotel.... More

Stayed one night during a hiking/casino trip in the Smokies. The motel was inexpensive, clean, and comfortable. The beds are firm which I personally prefer over a soft/saggy mattress. The lady working the reception desk was friendly as well as the housekeeping staff. Stayed on the second floor which was not a problem for us but there is no elevator... More

Having once been a Best Western and maybe something else before that, the Great Smokies Inn is old and dated. Think 1970's-style, perhaps. They do not offer a free breakfast; my pillows were a bit lumpy; and the coffee maker was missing one peg on the bottom, which made it list to one side and necessitate being propped up by... More

Because this was kind of a last minute thought about a get-away for us, I was expecting to get the bottom of the barrel.
