There were several nice things about this motel. The front desk staff was pleasant. Rooms have outside entrances, which we liked. We also liked having a first floor room. Our room, which was larger than most motels, was very clean and well-maintained. The TV, an older model, provided all the channels we were interested in watching. The mattress was marvelous and we slept quite well.
Upon check-in, we were given a sheet "for TV channel listings." The top portion of this same sheet included a price list of items from their rooms because "We have a lot of guests wanting to purchase items. . ." Really? $40 for a blow dryer? $8 for a pillowcase? $5 for a pitiful rag of a washcloth? The sheet was very clear in stating I would be charged if any make-up was left on one of their linens or towels/washcloths. Hope I didn't soil anything! The front desk had stated that my credit card would only be used for damages, as our room was "comped" through Harrahs. I look forward to seeing my credit card bill, and will be absolutely furiously if I am charged for "damages!"
Other downers - there's no in-room refrigerator, which we usually use when staying at a motel. Ice is only in the lobby (our room was at the far end). We enjoy the continental breakfast most motels provide, but Cherokee Lodge does NOT offer this, and the closest restaurant is over 1 mile away.
I do not plan to stay here again.
