Nice clean hotel and great staff. Close to the casino.

Very nice area with Excellent hotel. clean, easy access, quite, close to beautiful area. team guide me to spend nice 3 days in the area. I Extended my stay.

Quiet. Clean. Decent breakfast. No complaints. Would stay again.

The hotel is in a good location. I wanted to stay in Bryson City but there was not available lodging there as I booked last minute. The hotel was neat and clean. The staff was friendly. The pool area is small but the pool was very clean. I love that there is an outdoor pool! It would be beneficial to have a fridge in the room as I was in the area to hike and would have liked to keep beverage and snacks to take hiking.

The hotel was clean. Usually rooms include microwave and mini frig but ours did not. Floor in bathroom was slippery. Beds were comfortable. Breakfast was good. Overall it met our needs for an overnight stay.

Close to casino, love the free breakfast. We the Internet is a little slow but still work. Parking are limited.

Nice place to stay near Harrahs casino. Friendly staff. Convenient location.

Right across the street from Cherokee! Can't ask for more.

The front desk staff was good. Continental breakfast was very typical with good hours and helpful staff. Rooms were clean and average size. It's located across the street from the casino and in walking distance of some restaurants and shops.

This was a very nice hotel. It is a short walk to the casino. The room was very clean and the breakfast was fantastic!

Location is great They have free breakfast every morning From 6:30 am to 9:30 am

Great experience at this hotel! We would stay here again!

The hotel was as I expected. The fitness center however was a joke. It was comprised of a bike and 2 treadmills, but only 1 of the 3 worked, and the water dispenser was empty. The complementary breakfast was average. The room was clean, but the bed was firmer than I like. The highlight was its location, which was directly across the street from Harrah's.

The bed was too short for my wife she 6'2 inches tall . I requested a king bed not two queens beds. I requested a non smoking room, they gave me a smoking room. they said since I booked the room through a third party they could give me what they want. We had to burn insense the whole time just to stand the smell. There was no refrigerator in the room. There was no microwave in the room, it definite wasen't worth the price we paid for it. Basically they said if you book a room through a third party they give you what they got left. Thanks, James Johnson

The hotel is across the street from the Harrah's Casino in Cherokee NC. It could really use some updating especially at $169 per night. We also ran out of hot water while taking morning showers. Very inconvenient. The entire street in front of hotel could use some sprucing up too. Just dirty. Plants all over sidewalks, trash, etc.

hotel was clean and had nice people always willing to take care of your needs! casino is only a 1 -2 minute walk from hotel!

1. no towels 2 did not change sheets 3 No tv receptions 4 did not wash tub 5 we had to wait to get into our room at 3pm the 2nd day becasue they did not clean it yet 6 did not clean the coffee machine, did not throw away dirty coffee filter from previous guests 7 very noisey 8 no small refrigerator to keep our water cold

great location to casino, hotel and rooms were very clean,great hot breakfest

We went to the museum and drove to Maggie Valley to see the mountains. There was much more to do, but we were limited as far as time in that we only had one day for sight-seeing. The room was clean & I loved the strong water pressure with a large shower head in the shower! We needed a refrigerator and a microwave which we plan to get next time. We plan to go back when we can stay longer. Good trip.

Easy access to everything. Very clean and neat. The management was very nice.
