We recently visited the Baymont Inn Cherokee as we were going to ride the train out of Bryson city to see the autumn colors. There are very limited options in and around Bryson city to stay, so we choose the Baymont as there really weren't a whole lot of other options.
First, the Baymont is located in a somewhat strange location. It's on a road that is off of the main road where most of the shops and happenings are. It's also directly next to a High school football field, and being that we were staying on a Friday night, we were a tad concerned, but to our luck, no football game that night.
The Baymont itself was small, but adequate. The staff was very friendly, and whenever we asked them for anything, it didn't take long for them to meet our request. The do offer a continental breakfast which isn't much more than toast and cereal, but better than nothing to get you started in the morning.
The baymont is close to the strip where you'll find cherokee shops and it's also close to a very quaint park where a stream runs through, and there is also a really pretty bamboo forest. That was neat. We also heard, but didn't have time to visit, Mingo Falls was nearby and is the gem of the area.
My biggest knock on the Baymont was the sleep itself. The beds were a bit stiff for my taste and I definitely have slept better in other hotels. They do have free wifi, which is key as my AT&T service was sparse to say the least in the area. Overall, not a bad place to stay for a 1 or 2 nighter.
