Rooms were clean, though a little worn around the edges and dated (though we like the dated part). The staff was kind and friendly. It was quiet and, most importantly to us, super conveniently located near the gateway to the Great Smokies National Park, which is where we spent all our time - only going to the hotel to shower...

If you are looking for something spectacular you should look elsewhere. However if you just want a clean room to sleep in for a night or two then go for it. We went for Harrah's mainly so we didn't spend a lot of time in the room. The room was dated but clean and quiet. It is kind of far... More

This was a hotwire purchase and I will not purchase a room in Cherokee thru them again. Not their fault but incredibly nasty. We are not hard to please but this place left a lot to be desired. The poor front desk girl looked as though she had just lost her best friend. Tried to cheer her up but that... More

I would never stay at this hotel again. The room was stinky, dirty dusty carpet. The sheets were so old and thin. The hotel grounds were old and worn out. The staff was friendly. The bathroom was clean just worn out.

The rooms are a little dated but they are very clean. The staff was exceptionally friendly. I loved the rocking chairs on the porch. The location is great for eating and shopping. I would stay there again.

At the end of our last day on the Blue Ridge Parkway, we stopped across the street for fuel. A quick Google search (even though I could see the hotel from the gas station) for reviews verified that this hotel was within our budget and met our standards for cleanliness. Special walk-in rate was in effect, so this ended up... More

While googling things to do in Cherokee, North Carolina, I came upon this hotel and thought it looked very quaint and just the perfect 2-night stay place for my daughter and me. After reading the reviews, I was even more sure. I did enjoy the quaint cabin-like atmosphere. The room was clean and big enough for the 2 of us.... More
