The hotel is right across from the casino's parking lot. You could walk to it and catch Harrah's free shuttle to the door or drive to it, park for free and then catch the shuttle. The hotel also has its own shuttle to the casino leaving at specified times throughout the day, ending at 11 pm. I personally wouldn't recommend walking to the casino's entrance, as it's a bit far and there's construction taking place.
My overall experience was fine. The decor is outdated, and there were problems with the room that -although they didn't put a real damper in my stay- didn't speak highly of the cleaning/maintenance staff either. The towel rod in the bathroom was falling off the wall, as was the outside casing for the AC/heat. There was a black substance -mold?- growing around the AC/heating unit as well. I also found a piece of floss in one of the drawers, and a work table in the room was kind of sticky.
I wouldn't completely dismiss this property, but I will likely try another establishment the next time I'm in Cherokee.
