Clean, quiet, secure hotel. Short walk to Harrahs Casino. Save your money and stay here! The casino hotel is too expensive. Family friendly. Not sure if they had shuttle to casino but the walk is nice.

Holiday Inn always lives up to our expectations. The free breakfast and internet was a great bonus. That will have us coming back. Best hot water ever!!! I so look forward to a hot bath when I travel, shower when in a hurry. Very disappointing when water wont get hot as I want it. Right across the street from the...

We checked in a little early but that was no problem from the front desk, they gave us our choice of floors to stay on and the whole process was quick and easy. The room was very clean and neat (no musty smells or anything), the bathroom was also clean and neat. The beds were very comfortable and we (wife...

I will not stay at this hotel or any IHG hotel in the future. The experience redeeming its reward points at this hotel is nothing but a disaster. IHG's reward redemption disclosure is unfair, deceptive, and not transparent. I fell in a trap and ended up losing my rewards and got charged for a 'no-show' despite my numerous calls and...

Management response:

We here at the Holiday Inn Express are sorry to hear your refund for your no show rewards night hadn't come in at the time of writing this review. It is unfortunate that we had to follow IHG policy for your reservation and redirect you to them as it is their policy we followed. We do hope you have a...

Very nicely appointed hotel. Comfortable bed and pillows. TV was not getting all the channels advertised but did not bother to report the problem until we checked out. There was a burned out bulb in the bathroom that should have been noticed by housekeeping. Breakfast included sausage and eggs. OK stay for one night.

This was the perfect location, across the street from Harrah's and a lot less. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. Convenient to everything. The entire staff was friendly and helpful. The free breakfast was absolutely wonderful. Gravy, biscuits, pancakes, delicious cinnamon rolls!!! To sum the entire experience. AWESOME - ENJOYABLE - PLEASANT Thank you Holiday Inn Express...

We stayed overnight for a couples get away. Holiday Inn Express in Cherokee was very accommodating. We arrived well before check in , room was cleaned and we was able to check in early. Holiday Inn Express has a good location right across from the casino.

We stay here just about every time we are in Cherokee. It never disappoints. The only change I would like to see is an egg white option added to the breakfast. The rooms are always well kept. The staff is always friendly and helpful. Thank you again for a wonderful few days.

My friend and I were attending a show at Cherokee Casino and wanted a close place to stay within walking distance. The price to stay at the casino was A LOT more than I wanted to spend for a short weekend. The Holiday Inn was a great choice. Check in was fast and easy, the lobby was clean and the...
