“End of the Skyline Drive”
Reviewed September 19, 2011

Stayed here at the end of our skyline drive trip. New, clean, great breakfast. Fridge & coffee maker in room. didn't know there was a Harrah's Casino across the street, but played there for 3 hours and broke even. Would stay again.

Check in was quick and easy.

All the staff was nice.

Clean room and the motel was clean.

But Sleep on the first floor about midway down the hall was hard to come by.
Doors slamming all night. Plumbing Noises. Talking etc.
There was alot of Motorcycles there but never heard a Harley Reving up.
It was the internal noises that kept us awake.

Wifi was good.

Breakfast was excellent and plentiful.

For the price to stay there (Over $100) thought they could have done better on the soundproofing for the room.

Recommend if you stay here, get a top floor room.

Booked 2 nights to visit the casino and area attractions. Checked out after the first night. The room was dark, not so clean...lots of loose pipe tobacco in one of the side table drawers, empty liquor bottle in the other. The conditioner in the bathroom appeared to have been used and put back on the counter. Sheets were worn out and would not stay on the bed. We were lucky that we checked in early..not enough parking for all guests.

Breakfast was not good..eggs had a strange flavor as did the orange juice. Biscuits were rock hard...we were early, so it wasn't as if they had been there too long. Tossed it all in the trash.

On a positive note the staff was really friendly and it was an easy walk to the casino.

This hotel is perfect for a weekend getaway to Cherokee for a little adult gaming. This hotel is literally right across the street from Harrah's Cherokee and the walk is about 3 minutes. Very nice area and the vibe of the hotel is pretty awesome. Much more affordable then Harrah's but closer then if you actually stayed at the casino hotel. Will definately be back to the Holiday Inn Express Cherokee!
