This hotel definitely met all our needs in every way! The staff was very friendly and helpful and wonderful to talk to! The owner was sweet as well. The room was perfectly cleaned, smelled nice and had everything we needed. The bed was absolutely one of the most comfortable I've ever slept in! The hotel is convenient to everything, we walked every time we went out except to drive to the casino, which is very close as well. Our experience was so nice, we hated to leave! Thank you so much to all the staff who were so kind to us! You made our honeymoon more memorable. I will definitely recommend this hotel to anyone and would love to return in the future!

Room Tip: Each room had a couple of chairs and a little table outside. I recommend a little picnic outside your room. You can watch the ducks that wander over from the park across the street!

I give five stars when a property meets or exceeds my expectations, and this one did. Our second-floor room was obviously recently redone, with all new carpet, fixtures, bedding, etc. But the whole property sparkled--from the clean as a whistle parking lot to the lovely planters along the balconies and lot to the super clean windows. Breakfast area is small but cozy with a decent selection.

The front desk was also nice enough to move my reservation (after the cancellation deadline) to the next day when our van broke down and we were not able to get to the hotel.

We were going to stay in Gatlinburg on our way out of GSMNP, but we were horrified at the atmosphere there. We'd definitely base ourselves in Cherokee if we were to come back: it's smaller, quieter, has a lovely river park, and has a more interesting cultural feel because of the reservation nearby. I worried about motorcycle noise, but it wasn't too bad. We were there midweek on June 11, before the busy season really hit.

This hotel offers a good view off of the balcony walkways of the Smoky Mountains. Pick a second floor room and rocking chairs are right outside your door to relax and enjoy the clean mountain air. The continental breakfast is ok with cereal, breads, toaster waffles and not much more but we have had a lot worse. No pool but the river park is right across the highway and if you can brave the water temps (not us Floridians) swimming is really close. The best thing about this property is the housekeeping staff who I believe is second to none in the cleanliness of the rooms and the entire property.

Price was high for the lodging and amenities probably because it was Memorial Day Weekend. We booked in advance and it was hard to find available rooms. Regardless, the hotel staff were very helpful, even called the room to make sure everything was good. Breakfast was mostly pastries and toaster waffles but plenty of choices of cereal and grits, oatmeal, etc. Would probably stay again if in the area.

We stayed on the second floor which the hotel clerk said was recentely renovated. Simple room but clean and new. Only mins. from the casino and plenty of food. 20 mins. from great hiking in the Great Smokie Mountains. We were so pleased we stayed another night. Front desk very helpful.
