I know, gamblers smoke but wow. This hotel is the worst if you have any allergies to smoke. Easy to walk to the Casino and back to hotel. I started to rain so we took our car to the covered garage for free at the Casino. My girlfriend and I stayed here to see a concert at the Casino. Breakfast...

My boyfriend and I were in town to check out the Daughtery concert and travel to Asheville to visit the Biltmore Estate.

The breakfast there is just...

First time at this Hotel which is in walking distance to Harrah's over a Quaint Bridge. Upon our arrival, the staff worked very hard to get us an early Check-in. We were upgraded to a suite. The property is old,or appears that way, but our room was fine, but a little noisy. Our Breakfast was good.Kudos to David, Teresa and...

Had a get away weekend in Cherokee and my wife picked the Holiday Inn Express to stay in. It's very convenient to Harrah's and had friendly staff.

Rooms are very clean and beds are comfy. The pool looked nice but we didn't have time for a swim. Price is,of course, a bit higher since it is right across the street from casino. We were pleased with our stay and will probably be back!

The hotel is across the street from the casino. Well maintained, we had one small issue and they fixed it right away. Staff was friendly, breakfast was better than most hotels. Eggs, bacon etc. The only down was no refrigerator micro wave in rooms. I would stay there again.
