Good for Cherokee

Just a good value for cherokee if you not looking to spend a lot. Good location, great for seeing the area and retiring to a clean comfortable room.

OK...BUT WOULD LOOK ELSEWHERE NEXT TIME

The location in Cherokee was nice. The room was basic. Cleanliness was satisfactory. Staff at desk seemed to be I different to guests. They were friendly and polite, but on three visits to the desk within about a 5 hour timeframe, there was a different person each time. I had to ask for soap and shampoo, which was absent from my room. Several places to stay in the area, so I would look elsewhere

Restaraunt not avaiable as advertised

While the location, staff and cleanliness of this hotel was great, the lack of the restaraunt that is advertised was disappointing. While the staff did recommend a good option for us, one of the reasons we selected this hotel was for the restaraunt listed in the write up. Prehaps they need to update the write up for this hotle to avoid any confusion regarding restaraunt availability.

Check with the front desk. They gave several options for us to try. All of them were great and just a short drive or even right accross the street!

I'd come again

Friendly staff though not too informed of area activities. (not even what's open or not) BE aware that most things are closed during off season. (Nov-April) ON season being from May-Oct Even restraunt at hotel closed. Only one dresser with only 3 drawers. No Micro. Did have small fridge. I coulda used a LOT more drawers and counter space in main room. Internet worked well everything was clean. TV was nothin special I'm guessing 24" no more than 27"
