If I owned or operated an overpriced lodging inn that ranked 25 of a possible 27 and I may not have the courage to respond to all these angry folks either. Yes my husband and I arrived late at night and had no other choice except to pay the 85 dollars for a room that looked as though the trash...

The staff first off was not friendly, we walked in and didn't a get hello, hi or anything, the lady just stared at me like I was a alien until I asked for a room. The whole family was in the lobby and it was filthy. Once in the room the light was so dim you couldn't see that well,...

One word ROACHES and when we complained they knew it. We were the second guest to leave. Horrible place all the way around. Beds are awful, tub had 16 cigarette burns. Sliding glass door would not lock.

This was a very last minute stay... Very last minute.. Paid $85/night tax included. Seems like the whole family was in the small lobby. I'm all for "family businesses" but live the family "business" at home. We had no choice because everywhere we went at 10pm was booked. We didn't feel like going down to Maggie Valley this late and...

I stay at Cool Waters any time I go to Cherokee NC. The rooms are clean and the staff is very friendly. Being Cherokee myself I enjoy sitting and talking to the owner Ned. Nice pool and large backyard. Grannies Resturant is right across the street. Great buffet style food. I plan on going back this summer on my motorcycle...

I really wanted to give this hotel a good rating as we frequent it on GSM trips, but honesty and disappointment took over. When we decided to extend our stay, the next morning just before checkout time, an important time, the office was locked with no note. The lady cleaning saw me and ducked away into a room. My second...
