This place was okay for a last minute stay in Cherokee as it is right across the street from the casino (there is a cross-walk but it is a busy street). The first night we had a room in which the air conditioner did not work right (second floor next to vending machine room) so they moved us across the hall and it was very cold air so hopefully they will really fix the one room. It is an older property and was just okay.
We did use the pool and it was pretty clean though the pool is in need of some repairs.
The hotel is close to several eating places and some shopping. See my other reviews in Cherokee.
On a more positive note, the front desk was helpful and though I thought is was simply a continental breakfast, they actually served scrambled eggs and bacon one morning and an "omelets" and sausage the next. Both mornings they served some cinnamon rolls which I tried one morning and was surprised how good it actually was. My husband had them both mornings.
If passing through, this is an acceptable short-term stay location.
