My friend and I were attending a show at Cherokee Casino and wanted a close place to stay within walking distance. The price to stay at the casino was A LOT more than I wanted to spend for a short weekend. The Holiday Inn was a great choice. Check in was fast and easy, the lobby was clean and the...

We stayed at the Holiday Inn this past Friday night as the casino hotel was fully booked and we waited until the week before to book a room. The room was comfortable, clean, and spacious. The breakfast was average hotel fare, and plentiful- the coffee was quite good. The primary reason we chose this hotel was the proximity to the...

The hotel seems to have undergone some cosmetic changes since the last time I stayed. The lobby and rooms look great. Incredibly clean. Check in with Dave was very fast which is nice. I was really impressed with how many channels they offer in the guest rooms. My room was conveniently located by the pool patio so I didn't have...

Based on the previous reviews thought it would be a nice place. Though while lying on the bed, I saw a bed bug crawling on my shirt towards my face. I killed it immediately and turned it over to the front desk @ 10 PM Saturday night. We were so disgusted we drove down to Atlanta at night with the...

The room was spacious, had a small love seat couch in the room. The Couch was not comfortable at all. Need new mattress because they were so hard and if you sit on the side of the bed you fall off. The sheets on the bed was very small and there was a comforter and NO blankets. The check in...

Clean and quiet. We checked in VERY early this morning and the staff was efficient and helpful. Room is clean and spacious. The hotel is located directly across from the casino and near several restaurants. A/C is quiet and efficient.

Stayed here on business. Couldn't really leave due to co-workers. Immediately smelled cigarette smoke in the building. My room had definitely been smoked in. Signs say property is 100 percent smoke free, but obviously not true. Disappointed.

We stayed for 2 nights while attending a concert at Harrahs Casino and found the hotel to be extremely convenient to the casino. It was a short few minute walk between the two properties. The hotel has been remodeled to a certain degree but it isn't as nice as many of the other Holiday Inn properties that we've stayed in....

Keep in mind this is a 2 star hotel. For a 2star hotel I will give it good marks. Friendly staff, my king room was extra roomy, breakfast was barely fair, decent price, clean, mostly updated. 5-8 minute walk to casino floor.
