Having decided to stay in Cherokee rather than big Asheville we arrived and checked into the hotel. We then enquired where the closest bar and restaurant was located. The hotel staff told us the whole area was dry for about 10 to 15 miles except for the Casino which was about 3 miles away. We went off to have some... More

Nice but, All A/c units are full of dust like most hotels. The convenience store across the street has many pictures of thieves mostly women that stole from the store that makes the entire area feel unsafe.

Thank you for your stay with us. We do clean our air filters every 3 months and I have sent housekeeping back to that room and to re clean the filter. And I have seen those pictures as well. And they are very old and I wished that they were taken down. We hope to see on your next visit... More

Loved our stay here. We were more than comfortable in our room. Our room was clean. In the evenings and early morning we hung out on the front porch on the rocking chairs. Great time just to sit, read, chat, drink tea/coffee. GREAT staff especially the night crew. Kyle and David went out of their way to make us feel... More

This place is convenient to several shops. We had a good stay. My only complaint is the carpet does need to be cleaned. My daughter's feet had to be washed after her bath before she went to bed. Other than that no complaints. It is within walking distance to several places to eat also.

This Hotel was priced right and the room was very neat and clean. It was convenient to everything including Harrah's, to the point where we really didn't even need to drive our car. A bus came around to pick up any Harrah visitors. I would recommend this Hotel to anyone on a budget. Great stay!
