We just returned today from two nights at this really great hotel! I know, I know, you think, Holiday Inn, UGH! This place will surprise you. Its lobby area is very nicely done, the front desk clerks were all very nice. The rooms were spacious, with extremely comfortable beds. They use Serta Perfect Sleeper, Emerald Concierge mattresses. Fantastic!
They have great amenities in the rooms: hairdryer, coffee pot and coffee, iron, ironing board, etc... They hot tub was great and the pool was very enjoyable. I used both on both nights!
The room was very clean and bug free. Bed-bug free, too!
Off the beaten path, and within driving distance to where ever you want to go.
The restaurant was A+ as well. Both places, the hotel and the restaurant provide you with a well earned bargain.
If we ever go back to Cherokee, N.C. and have a need for a room for the night, this will be the first, and hopefully only, place I will check.
The best thing I like about it is:
IT IS OWNED BY NATIVE AMERICAN INDIANS!

This was our first Hotel on our trip. the hotel is situated a bit outside of Cherokee. This is good, because Cherokee is very busy. A warm breakfast was included. But be aware that if you want something to drink that is not coffee, milk or ice tea you have to pay. The outside pool is ok. We just took a look at the indoor pool that seemed to be also ok. The room had the Holiday Inn standard and was clean.

This hotel is in SERIOUS need of an update. The room was disgusting...stains all over carpet, TINY bathroom and GROSS shower. If I hadn't already paid upfront to get the lower discount, we would have left. The "free" breakfast buffet is the standard fare you would get at other hotels that offer continental style free breakfast. The rooms all open to the parking lot (very OLD STYLE).

We come to Cherokee several times a year but this was our first time staying at the Holiday Inn. We were impressed! I work as an executive housekeeper for a five star resort so I know a quality hotel when I stay at one. The hotel and restaurant staff were very helpful, polite, friendly and informative. You won't be disapointed with the service. This is an older hotel but it is in very good shape and appears to be recently rennovated. The grounds are well kept and exceed what you would expect from Holiday Inn. The rooms are cozy, clean, decorated nicely and the furnishings were great! The king bed in our room was very comfortable and we slept well every night.

We loved the free breakfast buffet which is included for guests. The restaurant was awesome and was a nice surprise for us since we didn't want to drive around looking for somewhere to eat. We ate there every morning during our stay and was never disappointed. They also serve dinner there which we heard was also very good. It is very rare to find a restaurant this good in this type of hotel!

The two pools were great but the outdoor pool must have just opened because it was still a little green. They did work on cleaning it up while we were there and it was good to go afterwards. There is also a nice little playground next to the outdoor pool that the little ones would enjoy. I would definitely reccomend this hotel for families. It is a great value for the money and we will most certainly stay again. Kudos to the management and staff of the Holiday Inn Cherokee for running a awesome little hotel in the mountains!

suggest removing fake table plants in restaurant - Dusty. get salt shakers w/ larger holes, was no fruit today, add a list of drink coices for breakfast, eggs were over cooked. Outside pool is nice. Bed was alittle soft. All hotels should non slip bath mats like they have here.
