We stayed here because Harrah's was booked. The hotel is just across the street from Harrah's and a easy walk to the Casino. Felt safe at night returning to the Hotel. Room okay. Clean just a little out dated. Staff was friendly. Breakfast was okay.

The Holiday Inn Express was clean and comfortable. The staff was helpful and friendly. With the crazy weather, the room was warm while snow blew outside and was cool when it was sunny and warm outside (all in the space of 48 hours). The heat/ac unit blower turns on and off while in use, so the noise also turns on... More

Because of a previous stay at this hotel, I did not mind returning and was pleased with my one night stay except for the easy-to-hear conversation from adjoining rooms. However, It was a pleasant relief after learning from the hotel receptionist that the concert I had planned to attend the night I arrived had been canceled. The hotel also offered... More

The hotel itself is nice enough, clean and tidy. Room was clean and comfortable, and the free breakfast was fine too. My big problem is noise. We could easily hear the conversations of the people in the next room, as well as their TV. I hate that. I don't know what Holiday Inn can do to fix something like that,... More

I've been coming to Cherokee for many years and I always stay at this Holiday Inn Express ... I usually use points unless I'm traveling on business and even with points they take great care of me.

We stayed one night in a king suite and a two bedded queen suite. The hotel itself is directly across from the Harrahs Casino which is the biggest attraction in town. There is plenty of free parking. The front desk manager, David, could not have been more accommodating. He went out of his way to help us, particularly when one... More

We were ready to hit the casino, so we'll left our bags packed on the floor and left the room. Arriving back at the hotel at 4:00 am, ready for bed, pulling... More

Right across the street from HARRAH's so an excellent choice if you want to visit the casino. Rooms are clean and decent and staff is friendly. Only breakfast ends a bit early ( 9.30) but its a great location to stay.

We were there over the Thanksgiving holiday 2013. Room was a corner king, 2nd floor. Everything was clean and up to standards. The 3rd floor room above us must have had a group of elephants check in and we swear they were jogging around the room. Each and every foot fall echoed like a clap of thunder into our room.... More
