The service is good. The location is great. Ample Parking. The rooms are newly renovated and the you can smell the new carpet. The walls are not entirely sound proof. Clean and confortable beds. Slow internet service.

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...

Clean, convenient to the National Park and to the attractions in Cherokee itself. Free breakfast was good. Room was spacious and modern. The casino is right across the street. We mostly visited the Cherokee Museums etc on the reservation.

I recently stayed here for 1 night as I was going to be gambling across the street at the Harrah's Cherokee Casino. The hotel at the casino was charging something insane like $300 a night.

Clean, basic hotel, good breakfast. Small outdoor pool. Very friendly and helpful staff. You may want to ask for a high floor to avoid noise from above hotel guests. We could hear walking all night as we were on ground floor.

For a hotel that is normally a good place to stop, this Holiday Inn Express fell short. It had a very unpleasant odor in the hallways and our room like it had been occupied by pets and then not cleaned well. The room was old and dated and noisy. We did not enjoy the stay and did not have the...
