We had a nice comfy room and the indoor pool was nice. Not heated but nice. Everything was great until breakfast. We went down at 9:20. Breakfast ends at 9:30. Other people were still getting breakfast so, we sat our bags down a thought we would grab a quick bite. Everything was still out other than, we didn't see biscuits...

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express specifically because it was directly across the street from Harrah's casino. We easily were able to walk to the casino and back with no problem. Upon entering the hotel we were created by friendly staff who had our reservations ready. The room was clean and comfortable. The beds were well appointed with soft...

We were out for the full day and when we returned our room had not been serviced. Around 5:15 housekeeping arrived but we had to say no since we were getting ready for dinner. Very late to clean the room to say the least! Also we heard complaints from some of our group about the assistant manager being very rude...

We stayed at this hotel instead of staying in Cherokee. It's about 15 mins away from the Casino. Very nice and quiet. Great complimentary breakfast. Room was clean and quite spacious. Away from the Cherokee crowds, but close enough to enjoy the sights of Cherokee.

Hotel was clean with very friendly staff. The room had a sitting area and a desk, which was a pleasant surprise because we only paid for a regular king room. Heated indoor pool definitely was NOT heated but the hot tub was nice. Breakfast had many good choices and was included with the room. Overall, we would probably stay again.

Very nice Holiday Inn Express with big indoor pool and hot tub. Friendly folks and excellent Greek family restaurant real close by. Suite size room is very spacious. Right off Route 23 with easy access. Close to town of Sylvia NC.

This is hands down the friendliest hotel I have ever stayed at! The breakfast was great and rooms were clean. We stayed here taking my daughter to the Polor Express and it was s short drive to Bryson City where we caught the train. I would definitely stay here again!

My husband and I stayed at this hotel this past week for two nights for our niece's wedding. The hotel is the usual sort of mid range hotel. The rooms seem to look all alike in these kinds of hotels. The front desk staff was welcoming and helpful. Unfortunately, our was never cleaned properly. The bathroom, and everything in it,...

Typical Holiday Inn Express, staff nice, breakfast OK, room was clean but felt "dreary" because it was done in browns and beiges with insufficient lighting. I feel it was too expensive for the location.
