    Great

    We spent 2 nights and would stay here again. Lots of supplies in the room: central heating, a flat-screen TV with satellite channels and a seating area. The housekeeping staff was truly amiable! We liked the private bathroom. We received ironing for free, a nice bonus.

    Overall the hotel met expectations, I will be back. Satisfied with the venue, it's a lovely place for staying in Cherokee. Paid me $ 243 for the room.

    Nice

    Easy access to the casino---2 block walk !

    The lack of sound-proofness of the rooms. Running/flushing water could be heard all night.

    I really liked the breakfast. it was great. especially since there is not very many places that are close by and convenient to eat- except the casin0 -/

    when we first checked in and went to the room- it was very evident that it was just cleaned because you could smell bleach- it would also be better if there were better curtains on the windows to help block out the morninng light

    Proximity to the casino

    Parking was already a problem, and back lot poorly lit. someone decided to park along the curb and because a bunch of motorcycles were pointed out from curb on other side made it IMPOSSIBLE to pass. Required to travel around other side and around entire hotel to get to what few spots were left just beyond where the aforementioned were illegally parked. Thank goodness there wasn't a fire--night clerk less than concerned.

    The location is good. The bed was comfortable. The general manager was very nice when we shared our complaints.

    The staff named Dave was very unfriendly. Housekeeping didn't come don't come back to your room if you have the do not disturb sign on the door. No one told us in advance.
