Be advised that you may be put in a smoking room. Since almost every hotel we have stayed in for years is non-smoking, I didn't even think to ask. We were put in a smoking room. Since we didn't get into our room until after 11pm, and we were exhausted and only staying one night, I did not complain. Otherwise...

Sometimes when I book with a non-chain hotel (and sometimes with the chain hotel) I am a little leery. No worries here, this is a top notch hotel that was recently remodeled. The beds were very comfortable and the staff was excellent. The hotel is on the other side of the river, but still very convenient to all the local...

We stayed here for 1 night while visiting Harrah's Cherokee. Room 303 was clean & everything worked. A little dated but that was ok. Located away from the majority of the tourist shops; only about 5 minutes drive from the Casino. Only complaints would be that there was no microwave in the room, the sink area & bath/toilet areas are...

We stayed at this hotel a few years ago and thought is was really nice. Since then, they have really done some more great upgrades. New paint, carpet. Rooms are great, very comfortable beds and pillows. They are doing some beautiful changes to the lobby area. From what we saw, it is going to look great when they finish.

No prior reservations and slim pickings due to Greg Allman playing at Harrahs. We ended up at the Cherokee Lodge and we had no complaints. Great value. Everything is dated but kept up nicely. Clean room and quiet. I'd have no problem staying here again.

My wife and I didn't really want to spend $150 a night for a riverside motel room so we went with the Cherokee Lodge for $100 per night. Room was non-smoking, no pets and it was clean and suitable. Not walking distance from the favorite tourist shopping and restaurants but still convenient. Bed slept well and plenty of pillows. Front...

We took my mama to Cherokee for her 84th birthday and we had a wonderful experience. The gentlemen at the front desk were very kind and accommodating. We had to have a handicap accessible room for my mama and it was such a tremendous help for her. Beds were very comfortable, room was clean, price was very reasonable, and the...
