Located very conveniently to everything. The room was comfortable. I would stay here again, but the reception was not very friendly upon check in. I had requested a first floor room due to mobility issues. I was told that because we had booked through a third party ( Expedia) this was what was available. In my thinking a full room is better than an empty one, and why say that to a customer.

I stopped at the Great Smokies Inn in route to visit other attractions around the area. I purchased a room for the night after seeing a low rate that was attractive. I would soon regret the decision as the room was very dingy. I had to keep my shoes on the entire time as I did not want to come in contact with the rug. The bathrooms are very small and the lighting is dim. I would definitely try a stay at another location when every I'm in the area.

Decent hotel the room was a good size, a bit dated. I was shocked the TV had no signal and we checked the cable line and it was tight. The front desk was unsure and while we waited for a call we noticed another cable line behind the chair that goes in to the wall and comes back out again behind the TV and then to the TV. That connector was loose. Soo that was OK. At check in and out the front desk staff was very attentive and funny! Otherwise out 2 nights were not bad at all.

My husband and I just spent two great nights at The Great Smokies Inn, in Cherokee NC. The Inn is wonderful.Great location, the staff was very friendly. The room was quite but, the beds need to be a little softer. I will recommend it to my friends.

Best rates of all the hotels around the casino and I have stayed here in the past with no issues. I request a 1st floor room before my arrival and when I got there I was told those are mainly smoking rooms or for pets. I told her those wouldn’t work for us. The lovely young lady behind the counter keep looking and was able to secure a room on the first floor!! I don’t know if was reserve for someone else but she did say it’s a first come first served establishment. I was very pleased since I was traveling with an elderly person that really can’t do stairs. The room was very clean and the beds were comfortable. A great place lay down and rest after losing my money in the casino. I will be staying here on my next overnight trip to Harrah’s. Those hotel prices next to the casino are ridiculous we aren’t really in Vagas!!

As a former "Road Warrior" with over 5,000 nights in hotels over that last 35 years, my reviews are Factual and Honest, which some hotels don't like. OVERALL 4.5/5 Staff ..5/5 Room 4/5 I wish they would start replacing their mattresses, need a little more comfort Noise The Road noise can be an issue, if you are in the front or left side, because the roads have a lot of traffic. Suggestions Replace carpet with Vinyl planks (look like wood) because carpet traps odors Fan in bathroom Paint instead of Wallpaper in bathroom, especially when their isn't a fan

We stayed here one night while visiting the Smokies. It's a fairly large motel. The room was a bit dated but it was clean and comfortable. Everything was in working order. The room had a fridge and microwave. It has a nice pool in the middle courtyard for when the weather is nice. The price was fair. Good parking. Good location if going into the south entrance of the Smokies. We would stay again if in the area.
