We weren't expecting much when we booked this room, based on the inexpensive price but, boy, were we ever happy when we opened the door! Clean spacious room. Nice beds and pillows. Large t.v., Rocking chairs outside to relax in. The continental breakfast looked appetizing too! We liked the location too! Minutes to the shops and just down the street...

The room was clean. Nothing had been renovated any time in the recent past. We were not made aware that wifi was available. The A/C had a musty smell to it. Linens were clean. It is only a short drive to the casino. Price was average, booked through a third party web site. Unfortunately was locked into that price, but...

The complementary Wi-Fi does not reach all the way down to the end of property. We were in room 101, the signal was non-existent. They really need to install a repeater somewhere or increase the power on the router. Everything else was nice, good for the price. Room was clean, everything else was fine. Not having internet was a HUGE...

everything works as supposed to be at this hotel, except wifi which the man at the front desk told me that because of the rainy weather. the breakfast was very good as well. since this is a small town, the location is not an issue in this case.

Good accomodations in a newer built hotel. The town is small and the hotel is close to everything. The beds were comfortable and breakfast was basic. The room was very clean and the a/c worked great. I would stay here again.

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...
