We stay at this property every fall. Cherokee provides easy access to the Great Smokey Mountain National Park and the Blue Ridge Parkway. This year we were pleased to see they have recently redone the entire property. Everything is fresh and clean - lobby, rooms and breakfast area. The staff was excellent - friendly and helpful. The only complaint I...

Across from the casino. People coming and going all night, laughing, carrying on, shouting part of the time. Could hear them in the parking lot shouting. Finally called the front desk at 4 am. Was quiet for awhile. Pillows smelled of smoke, the room didn't, but the room was very musty, stale upon entry. Had to run the fan a...

What a disappointment compared to other Holiday Inn Express hotels I have stayed in for many years now. Bed was a lumpy mattress, pillows were flat, given a room outside the ice machine that someone needed to fill every morning at 6am, faced the parking lot of horns blowing and sirens going off, breakfast space too small for the number...

Hotel was clean and bed was comfortable. Only major problem was the door to the room we had difficulty opening. After inserting Key Card door would be stuck. Not much to do in area. Restaurants are very minimal and not very clean. This hotel is good for an overnight only. I would not recommend spending to much time in the...
