I must say this was the nicest place we have stayed in, in awhile friendly staff, clean rooms and great breakfast. The gentlemen at the front desk was wonderful and Cassie our waitress was very nice. Will stay here again.

We made reservations at Chestnut boy was it a nightmare. 1) I was charged for a night I did not even stay 2) When we checked in I told them I was Disabled and there is no elevator . 3) 4 people at the front desk one on their cell they did not offer to help nor did they give me directions. I called them again because you could not read the room numbers on the doors and the place is very dark. They still did not help. 4) Finally found the room it was like freezer inside I turned the heat on it made a very loud noise that never stopped. I looked inside and I saw plastic spoons inside the heater wondering when they were going to melt 5) Bugs started flying after killing several of them and listening to the heater we left about 3 am.

We came to Cherokee for a concert at Harrahs. Only stayed one night. I must say the hotel was very clean. The people at the front desk were nice and very helpful as well. We did eat the free breakfast and I’m not really sure what people are complaining about. The food was good and we had lots of choices. I saw a lot of people raving about the beds. But in my opinion it was a typical hotel bed. I guess from all the reviews I was expecting one like home. I will say they were better than some hotels I’ve stayed at. My only complaint was no exhaust fan in the bathroom. I will stay again because of the cleanliness.

I have attempted to call this hotel for the last 2 weeks. I have called (828) 497-9181. The hotels answering machine answers and gives you a "333" extension that goes to a Kimberly **** in reservations voice mail that is full and not accepting voice mail. You then if you attempt to go the operator which plays music for 1 minute and an automated voice says that option is not available. I have gone to every extension available with no success in speaking to a human. We have a question regarding taking taxi or Uber service is in the area. So frustrating and we haven't even arrived yet.

Looking for Chester in our front desk operating system I cannot find to call you. I am not sure why you have been unable to get an answer on the phone I would be very interested in knowing the times of day these calls occurred. I will see that our answering system is updated. My extension is 339 and I will definitely call you back if I do not receive your call. I don't know of any Uber in our area, we do have taxi's we are a very small community and very easy to travel about if you are driving here. I regret that you have formed negative opinions about us prior to arrival. We take pride in customer service and are truly disheartened to hear of your experience.

This was our vacation trip this past summer and my husband and I stayed at this hotel. The service was not at all like it use to be when this was a Holiday Inn hotel, and whatever you do don't plan on having breakfast in the lobby. The lobby is filthy and the food is horrible.

HMMMM Not sure when you stayed or why you waited till the dead of winter to post a review from your summer vacation. #1 we don't serve breakfast in our lobby we have a full service restaurant. Our lobby is absolutely beautiful. #2 We serve a full hot buffet breakfast that our guests seem to enjoy very much. I don't think you stayed at our hotel. We are owned and operated by the same folks that owned and operated the Holiday NOTHING has changed but the passing of one owner. You have a great day now.
