We've been to many casinos in the US (Vegas/AC/Foxwoods/New Orleans,etc.)
Cherokee is at the top in terms of staff friendliness, help and just "glad to see you".
Casino is large, clean and comfortable. We are slot players ---lots of variety and "elbow room".
Rooms are also very clean and comfortable. Food was very good, well served and reasonable.
Overall, a very enjoyable experience --- we look forward to returning.

The casino hosts are very nice and helpful. the rooms are great and my wife and I love staying there. We live about 2 hours away and this makes for a nice getaway. I suggest you try out the rooms with jacuzzi tubs.

The rooms are very nice, and comfy - scenery is beautiful (depending on room site). Don't expect a lot of glitze such as AC or Vegas, but it gives you the feel of Cherokee and the mountains. The casino itself has some fun games, along with regular slots and video poker, no "live" blackjack games when I was there last year, planning a trip very soon this month. It has always been a fun time for my family with just a four hour trip from home. A pleasant and entertaining week-end for us - Consider it entertainment - Just don't expect to leave with a BIG win.

Loved it. The reason they don't have alcohol is because Cherokee is a dry town. They don't allow it. I really enjoyed it, and it is worth the 2 hour drive.

The hotel rooms at Harrah's are beautiful. We stayed right next to the ice/vending machine and we did not hear a thing. The decor was nice and the beds were very comfortable. We did not want to leave.
The casino itself is a different story. The smoking is really out of hand. It seems that more people come there to smoke than to gamble. Maybe Cherokee should be a non smoking city instead of a non alcohol city. They are doing a lot of additions to the casino. Lets hope that they are building a ventilation system for those whom are not interested in getting lung cancer.
I am so glad that Harrah's has apparently hired some real cooks for their restaurant because the food use to be awful. I was quite disappointed when I found out that they had gone up on the buffet and I thought "this had better be good'. Low and behold, it was. The ribs were better than restaurants that specialize in ribs. The SELU GARDEN wasn't good to me. I had the half chicken (fried) and it tasted like it was cooked the night before and refried to order.
The store/boutique on the second floor is great. I needed an inexpensive watch that was nickle free and wouldn't you know it, they had exactly what I needed and plenty to choose from for only $10. They also had some beautiful necklace and earring sets that were also nickle free. If you had money to burn then right next door they had more expensive items.
All in all, I look forward to going back!!!.

It must be a requirement to smoke while playing at Harrah's Cherokee because everyone appears to smoke. Unfortunately, the ventilation is horrible! The games are tighter than anywhere else that I have been, but only the ones that were working. They seem to have a slot machine maintenance problem because, many, many machines do not work. There is no alchohol for sale anywhere on the property. Without alcohol, there are no bars. Without bars, there is no live music. If all casinos were like this place, I would give up gambling. The most shocking thing about this place is that Harrah's is willing to put their name on it!

DON'T GO.
