All I can say for the place is it's clean and spacious. During a 3 night stay (everything else booked solid) I was totally under impressed with this hotel. I'm not picky and it takes a lot for me to rate places a two...they managed. 1. The constant rattling of the heat unit made it impossible to watch tv without... More

My wife and I stayed 2 nights in November. Was a slow week for visitors so not a great many guests. Had a king room- bed was comfortable, clean, good tv, mini-fridge . Cost was about 1/2 that of Harrah's room and was certainly adequate. The breakfast was good (off the menu one morning and buffet the next). I would... More

Stay here every autumn. Rooms are clean and beds are comfortable. Breakfast is hot and plentiful. The staff is helpful and well trained. Convenient to the trails and to the downtown areas and Casino is nearby.

This place is a little shady. Noise all night long and is in need of a makeover. There was not outside in the parking lot all night long. I had a free stay at harrah's and when i went to book it they said they did have any rooms available and put me in this place.

I booked my reservation on line, 1 King room 2 Adults. When I was checking in, AFTER confirming via phone two days prior they tried to give me a double room. Then there wasn't any toilet tissue in the room, had to call immediately for that. The following morning there was less than 5 minutes of hot water for a... More

Refreshing to for once stay in an hotel that is not part of a large chain such as Hampton, Courtyard, Days Inn etc. The Chestnut tree was nicely decorated and up to specs for a three star motel. The pool was already closed which was a pity given the warm temperatures mid october. No alcoholic beverages are served within the... More

My mom, sister, and I stayed at Chestnut Tree for one night. We experienced no issues during our stay. Parking was a breeze, the lobby was nicely decorated (very "Cherokee"), and the staff were all kind and attentive. The room was basic, but sufficient. It could have been a touch cleaner (dusty furniture and baseboards, maybe a more thorough vacuuming... More

Stayed for 2 nights as part of a promotion through Cherokee Casino. Room was basic, bed was comfortable, bathroom was very small. Simple small buffet breakfast, staff was very nice. Just a few minutes from the casino, would definitely have to drive there, too far of a walk.

My husband and I went to Cherokee for the night to celebrate our anniversary. Our room was nice and clean. They have a breakfast buffet and the food was delicious. The staff was very friendly and made us feel right at home. We would definitely stay again.
