Hotel was clean and bed was comfortable. Only major problem was the door to the room we had difficulty opening. After inserting Key Card door would be stuck. Not much to do in area. Restaurants are very minimal and not very clean. This hotel is good for an overnight only. I would not recommend spending to much time in the... More

Clean, convenient to the National Park and to the attractions in Cherokee itself. Free breakfast was good. Room was spacious and modern. The casino is right across the street. We mostly visited the Cherokee Museums etc on the reservation.

Had a room on the second floor. Room was extremely nice & clean. There was a free breakfast that included hot and cold food. I would highly recommend this hotel. The only negative thing I had was that on Sunday morning at 7:00 am, the trash truck came too dump the hotel dumpster. It was a little loud and woke... More

I recently stayed here for 1 night as I was going to be gambling across the street at the Harrah's Cherokee Casino. The hotel at the casino was charging something insane like $300 a night. I go to Las Vegas all the time and would expect to pay that for the premium properties. I found the Holiday Inn to be... More

Clean, basic hotel, good breakfast. Small outdoor pool. Very friendly and helpful staff. You may want to ask for a high floor to avoid noise from above hotel guests. We could hear walking all night as we were on ground floor.

We had a very nice updated room. It was clean and comfortable for a great nights sleep. Staff was friendly at check in and out. The breakfast was great with lots of choices. Location was great and parking was good.

For a hotel that is normally a good place to stop, this Holiday Inn Express fell short. It had a very unpleasant odor in the hallways and our room like it had been occupied by pets and then not cleaned well. The room was old and dated and noisy. We did not enjoy the stay and did not have the... More

For a Holiday Inn express, I was very disappointed with my stay. Hotel grounds and room very clean, but I think they spent more money on advertising than construction. Walls are very poorly insulated. We could hear people walking in the room above us, people in the hall talking and someone using the bathroom in the room next to us!... More

We stayed here for just one night, but enjoyed it greatly. We were greeted warmly upon arrival and found our room to be very clean and well appointed. The short walk to the casino was very convenient, and the free breakfast far exceeded my expectations. There was a nice selection and the area was kept tidy and organized. We will... More

One of the best in the area that I can tell. Was clean and the staff is friendly. Stay away from the sausage at the continental breakfast. Purchase water or other drinks before you get there. They charge $2.00 for a bottle of water or pop. It is right across the street from the Harrahs Cherokee Casino and tons of... More
