The hotel is across the street from the casino. Well maintained, we had one small issue and they fixed it right away. Staff was friendly, breakfast was better than most hotels. Eggs, bacon etc. The only down was no refrigerator micro wave in rooms. I would stay there again.

The front desk staff were very knowledgeable and helpful and gave us great tips during our 3 night stay. The hotel was clean, well kept and comfortable. Breakfast was better than many other brands and the coffee was great. Overall, a good experience.

My grandson went back to this hotel again, not because of our experience last year, but because my grandson like the location. We stayed here about the same time last year. My opinion of the place is improved, primarily from a staff service level. Last year the staff didn't seem interested at all. This year a big difference in the... More

This hotel seems a little outdated but for staying across the street from the casino it wasn't a bad value. The hotel was clean and the room was large enough for three. The beds were comfortable and the shower was clean and had ample hot water. Wish all hotels had mini fridges but this one didn't. The included breakfast was... More

Overall, this hotel definitely met my expectations. The location to Harrah's Casino is excellent. My husband and I were easily able to walk to the casino from the Holiday Inn. There's a well lit pathway that leads to the casino and it appeared to be safe. The room was very clean and the breakfast was also tasty with a lot... More

The good: very close to the casino. The walk is about 5 minutes and crossing the street is no big deal. The hotel is a typical HI Express and was just fine for sleeping and a shower. The tv even was HD which was a surprise. I didn't have a problem with noise around me. The not so good: overpriced... More

Drove to Bryson City from Georgia to see the Model Railroad Train Museum. Decided to check out Harrah's Hotel and Casino in Cherokee. The hotel was booked solid, so we went across the street to the Holiday Inn Express. The king size bed was great and the room was cool, quiet and clean. The bathroom could use a little updating,...

The hotel is across the street from the hotel but its a nightmare getting out of the parking lot. Once I saw the location I really didn't want to lose my parking space to go out to eat. The hotel staff was accommodating to me when I needed a frig which was good but I would not now if I... More

This location is in desparate need of remodeling. The cooling and heating units do not 'condition' the air adequately. Our room was consistenly damp and either too hot or too cold. The hotel was sold out both nights of our stay; the hotel has one luggage cart. The staff had to be reminded of membership amenities and was seen multiple... More
