Stayed 3 nights in a King Suite and found the Baymont to be as others have noted - clean, comfortable and friendly.
It's located on the opposite and quieter end of Cherokee from the casino and takes about 10 minutes to go the 4.6 miles there. It's also on the opposite side of the Oconalufte river than the main commercial Highway 441 running north through Cherokee. What used to be a high school on the north side of the hotel is now the Acquoni Expo Center, which had no events while we were here. So all in all, a pretty quiet tranquil place to stay. We saw a small herd of elk on the lawn our first night.
We stayed in a King Suite, which I found roomy. In addition to the King Bed, there were 2 nightstands, a desk with chair, a roomy chest of drawers with a built in fridge, on top of which was a microwave and LCD TV. The sitting area had 2 end tables with lamps, a coffee table, and a comfortable chair and sleeping sofa.
You might want to know the King suites are all on the north side of the hotel (facing the expo) and the parking lot lights, which didn't bother me as you still have a good view of the mountains and the drapes worked very well. Also the room's coffee maker uses the provided cups as its pot - it makes 1 cup of coffee at a time, so don't think like I did at first you're missing the pot!
The breakfast area has 10 2-person tables and as there are around 64 rooms, how crowded it is depends on how many rooms are occupied. Fresh coffee available around the clock was appealing and delicious.
Thanks to all the prior reviews for encouraging me to stay here. I would stay again and would recommend it to others.
