For a Holiday Inn express, I was very disappointed with my stay. Hotel grounds and room very clean, but I think they spent more money on advertising than construction. Walls are very poorly insulated. We could hear people walking in the room above us, people in the hall talking and someone using the bathroom in the room next to us!...

We stayed here for just one night, but enjoyed it greatly. We were greeted warmly upon arrival and found our room to be very clean and well appointed. The short walk to the casino was very convenient, and the free breakfast far exceeded my expectations. There was a nice selection and the area was kept tidy and organized. We will...

One of the best in the area that I can tell. Was clean and the staff is friendly. Stay away from the sausage at the continental breakfast. Purchase water or other drinks before you get there. They charge $2.00 for a bottle of water or pop. It is right across the street from the Harrahs Cherokee Casino and tons of...

nice proximity to harrahs. hotel was clean and mostly quiet. breakfast time can get pretty busy downstairs. parking is limited in the front, but plenty more in the back/side lots. you can easily walk to harrah's if desired.

I finally used my IHG rewards points and booked two rooms (one for the mother in law) for two nights at the Cherokee, N.C. Holiday Inn. The hotel is across the street from the casino and close to other attractions. The staff was professional and very friendly. Amanda (the front desk clerk) will make your stay enjoyable and Sarah (kitchen...

Stayed there for one night. Room was clean and sleep quality OK. Service at check in could have been a bit friendlier, but overall our stay was decent. The breakfast offered was enough to get you started and ready for the day.

Stayed here for a recent visit because I couldn't get a room a the casino hotel. Have to say the room was just as good as anything I've had at the casino. The room had everything I needed, including free wifi (which the casino doesn't give you) a refrigerator and a comfortable bed and clean bathroom. Everything was quiet on...

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express while attending the Drama "Unto These Hills". Newly remolded, clean, quiet, comfortable. Great pool. The front desk and employees were great. The location is centrally located near all the activity of the the Indian Reservation. Would highly recommend and hope to go back in the near future.
