The room was spacious and had a small coffee maker,microwave and refrigerator, A new TV was installed while we were there, but there was no menu on the remote which made it difficult to quickly find a show to watch. An envelope was left on the side table for tips for the housekeeper of the room. ...
This hotel made our polar express experience a memorable one! This was the first time we've been to Dillsboro so I didn't know what to expect. Its always hard finding a good hotel over the internet because the pictures can be misleading. I was pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The hotel is nestled ...
Struggled to find a place on our way home that was affordable with good reviews! This is THE place!! Clean! Great room! Great pool! Great breakfast!! Close to the interstate!! Would recommend to friends, and will absolutely stay here again!!
The title says it all. We got a room at a good rate, it is close to the Cherokee casino. We had to get up very early to depart, so we didn't get to try the breakfast, but our overall experience was nice. The front desk staff was also helpful with local restaurant and attraction recommendations.
After telling the service desk it was my birthday they gave me 25% off. I was very impressed. The room was as described and met my expectations. The staff was always friendly as we came back and forth. It was very close to Harrah’s Casino which was the reason for our visit. Would definitely stay ...

I travel in the area frequently, but I had not stayed at this hotel in a long time. Chose to stay on this trip because students were moving into WCU and there was nothing else available. I was pleasantly surprised. It was clean and the rooms were large. The only negative is that it had no workout room.
Beautiful hotel, close to everything! clean, nice staff and excellent location.
Good place to stay. Owners are pleasant and very accommodating to any request! Convenient to Waynesville and Cherokee. Not much of a view. Ashley Murphy room needs a little deep cleaning (behind couch and bed). It also needs an expandable screen for the window over dining area to allow opening both windows in the room at night to enjoy mountain air. You will hear talking from guests using the inside and outside dining areas from this room. Bed is comfortable. Room needs new curtains. It is very dark at night. :)
Nestled in the cute little town of Maggie Valley. Just a cute place on the river and close to the Cataloochee Skiing place. Only concern for us was we had to leave abruptly with a night left on our reservation due to an emergency and the manager didn't offer to give us a refund for the last day. :(
