I finally used my IHG rewards points and booked two rooms (one for the mother in law) for two nights at the Cherokee, N.C. Holiday Inn. The hotel is across the street from the casino and close to other attractions. The staff was professional and very friendly. Amanda (the front desk clerk) will make your stay enjoyable and Sarah (kitchen... More

Stayed there for one night. Room was clean and sleep quality OK. Service at check in could have been a bit friendlier, but overall our stay was decent. The breakfast offered was enough to get you started and ready for the day.

Stayed here for a recent visit because I couldn't get a room a the casino hotel. Have to say the room was just as good as anything I've had at the casino. The room had everything I needed, including free wifi (which the casino doesn't give you) a refrigerator and a comfortable bed and clean bathroom. Everything was quiet on... More

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express while attending the Drama "Unto These Hills". Newly remolded, clean, quiet, comfortable. Great pool. The front desk and employees were great. The location is centrally located near all the activity of the the Indian Reservation. Would highly recommend and hope to go back in the near future.

We spent two nights here while touring the area. This hotel has been recently refurbished and everything looks and smells brand new. The room was nice and the free breakfast was as good as can be expected. On the 2nd night, we could hear some noise from our upstairs neighbors. That's the only issue we had. Easy walk to Harrah's...

Our room was great. It was a handicap room and was huge. Plenty of room for wheel chair. The beds are about the best I have ever slept on in a hotel. The hotel was clean and well kept. The breakfast bar was fantastic. But the noise was awful. Kids running up and down the hall knocking on doors. We... More

Came to Cherokee to watch Gabriel "Fluffy" Iglesias. Booked a room at the Holiday Inn for it's close proximity to the casino (walking distance) and the price. Hot breakfast served in the morning from 6am to 930am. Friendly staff...no complaints!

Pleasant experience at the hotel. Note they are renovating but at this time it wasn't anything major and we had no problems with that. Room had fridge and microwave. Staff gave us info on where to get good pizza (and which ones delivered). They also came through with a corkscrew which I'd forgotten. Nice clean and quiet room with good... More
