My wife and I decided on a last minute trip and was lucky to find they had rooms. Though the price was more than I wanted to spend, it was last minute and it was during leaf color changing time. The room was decent, it had a small refrigerator and microwave. The only room left was a two queen room... More

We've stayed here several times over the last 5 years and are always pleased. This location is very convenient to both the Great Smoky Mountain Nat'l Park and the Blue Ridge Parkway. The rooms are comfortable, and the breakfast is the usual HI Express fare. The staff is always courteous. We bring a motorcycle in a trailer and always have... More

Being a member of Priority Club since it's 1984 inception I have stayed at many of their properties over the years. As always this property was clean and comfortable. Upon check in I asked if we could get a mini fridge but was told that they no longer offer them. Available in suites only. The one thing they have to... More

We stay at a lot of HIE's and this was one of the nicest. The hotel was very clean with a very helpful staff. We had a king bed suite and stayed 2 nights, if we ever go to Cherokee again we hope we can get the same room. Great breakfast, good assortment of items to chose from. The first... More

There is no doubt it is reassuring to find a Hotel chain that produces the same standard in all the locations carrying this mark. The hotel in Cherokee was spotless, the rooms large, comfortable beds and equipped with everything you are really likely to need. The staff were polite and always helpful. Our stay was within what I would describe... More

The property is very clean, and the rooms are pretty comfortable. It's conveniently located right across from the Casino, and gives you easy access to drive to other attractions, such as shopping. The staff is extremely friendly, and quick to assist. They have free breakfast until 9:30, so you can take your time if you're not really an early riser.... More

This was a very pleasant place. Room was clean and very comfortable. Staff was helpful with suggestions for dinner and gave us a booklet with local coupons. Free breakfast is always a plus! Dining area was very clean even though very busy. Across the street from the casino, so we could walk over.

Nice property in Cherokee directly across from the casino. My room was clean and comfortable. The hotel was full for the weekend, but it wasn't noisy. Breakfast was good, and my room had a mountain view.

Clean, nice bed, hot shower, bathroom was large. Breakfast very good. Good location to the casino and all the shops of Cherokee. The pool looked nice, but we didn't use it. The hall way did smell bad though. Like dog or BO.

Wonderful service from two great employees. Kayla and Israel were just terrific and made our stay wonderful and made us feel at home. We were on a business and small get away when we encountered this great service from this staff. Wonderful service.
