Recent guest reviews

We stayed at this last week, the service was excellent, the room was clean and the location was outstanding. Thanks for the front desk agent she did a good job (sorry, I am not good memorizing names).

We stayed here due to the location right across the street from the casino at Harrah's Cherokee. It is easier to get to the casino from here then the rooms at Harrah's. The staff here was great. From check in to breakfast room staff. Everyone was polite and asked how they could help. The rooms are a bit dated. The TVs are small and bathrooms need update. The room we were in (117 I think) had a tub that all of the water does not drain. When you jump in the shower you are in puddle of water from previous shower. Overall, great staff and location. But, with newer properties next door, there may be alternatives.

Parking was free. Several places you can walk to from this hotel. Casino's are easy walking distance. Checkin was easy and our room was clean. We were traveling down the Blue Ridge Parkway and decided to stop in Cherokee. Checkout was simple. They just email you a copy of the bill. Our bed was comfortable which was a welcome after a long day.

stayed here a few months ago and loved it. First floor is the best to get to the casino. I feel like it's closer to the casino floor staying here than at Harrahs Cherokee. Also don't have to deal with elevators. Great fitness room but the absolute best is the breakfast. Everything was well stocked with the Nicest people helping to keep the food coming. Will be back every time we come to Cherokee.

Best feature: directly across the street from the casino. An easy walk. Clean but a bit dated. Average for a Fairfield Inn. The staff were helpful in recommending a dinner location. A good nights stay.

Spent one night for gambling and show at Harrah's Cherokee. The Fairfield is directly across the street from the casino, with a crosswalk for your safety. Property is extremely clean; staff is friendly; check in was a breeze; breakfast is actually a little better than most hotel self server free breakfasts. Would definitely stay again.

Great location across from casino. The front desk staff is well trained. Very helpful and customer driven. The hotel sanitation rating is a 100. The highest rating in NC. Very clean. Nice breakfast. Breakfast staff friendly and keeps the area clean.

We'd never stayed here before, so weren't sure what to expect when checking in. The staff is super (especially Carolyn at the front desk). Our king suite was clean, spacious & bed comfortable. What more could you ask for? The complimentary breakfast was also very good. Harrah's Casino is just across the street. So, you just leave your car at Fairfield, and go to Harrah's for all the best restaurants & a little gaming. We'll definitely return.

I stayed at this Hotel for one night. The hotel was clean as to be expected. Checking in was easy. I can not give a review on all the amenities because I really came for the casino that was conveniently directly across the street from the hotel. Otherwise, The hotel had free hot breakfast and it was very good. The kitchen staff was friendly and helpful with me getting my eat on. For my purpose in being there, I would surely stay again.

The management should be extremely proud of the team running this hotel. Starting with Laura and caroline .they welcome you with open arms and smiling faces and then professionally complete their jobs. It isn't a show, they actually enjoy working for Marriott. In the morning,it's time for Debbie to take charge with a varied and fresh breakfast.her personality exemplifies the Marriott attitude toward the guests.
