This hotel is not looking to be on a review of the best 5 Star hotels around. I don't think it is even trying to be the little engine that could. It is merely a fine hotel at its price point. Nothing extravagant is going on here, except we were met by wild ducks in the parking lot, maybe giving...

Stayed for 1 night last week for a birthday visit to Harrah's Cherokee Casino. Absolutely loved this property. It was kept up very well. The room was spotless. It felt very welcoming from the moment we pulled into the parking lot. Very quite. Loved the rocking chairs available to guests although we didn't have any time to take advantage of...

Stayed for 1 night with my husband and sister while we visited Harrah's Cherokee Casino. The property obviously has owners that care as it is kept up very well. It was in perfect condition inside and out. The room couldn't have been cleaner. The cleaning staff is excellent. The young lady that checked us in was very pleasant. I have...

We stayed here for 3 nights. The room was very, but outdated. It was really convienent to the casino and other nearby attractions. Motorcycles shouldn't be allowed to be parked on the stalls close to the hotel rooms. You'll get a rude awakening in the morning, specially after coming back to your room late night/early morning. We didn't have chance...

My family and I stayed for 3 days. Room was very clean. Beds were comfortable. Rooms were very quiet. View from our room was better than what I was expecting. Gave it 4 out of 5 stars because before I booked the room, I called to make sure that they had baby cribs available. The person on the phone said...

This hotel is well kept and quiet. The staff are friendly and the rooms are very, very clean. The location is great as well! We were visiting the casino last minute and this hotel was the best in its price range! The only draw back is that the beds were very firm and were not comfortable for me. But given...

Stayed for one night. Room was ok, nothing special and not newly renovated. Loud room neighbours, management didnt much care. From theoutside the motel does look nicer than the rooms actually are. Weekend price $130... would have expected more for the money.

Made reservation before we left home, and got a better price than from the hotel. We got there and the check-in went great. Ask for a ground floor room, but it cost more so we took the upper room. The room was clean and comfortable. Everything in the room work well. At check out things were fast and easy. Did...
