“Good location”
Reviewed 4 August 2013 via mobile

Good location and value. Short walk to casino and close to all attractions. Clean rooms and free breakfast. Free wi-fi and helpful staff. I wanted to get a cabin but this was a better value hotel for a three night stay.

We wanted to stay within walking distance of the casino, but we did make reservations. We came across the Holiday Inn Express on our way to the casino, which was right across the street. I didn't think we would be able to get a room for our stay, oddly enough the staff was very understanding of our needs and within an hour we were given a room for our stay. The room was clean and very well maintained. Thanks to the staff for an enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: Suites have microwaves and refrigeration for convenience.

I love staying at Holiday Inn Express. My husband and make it our business to find one wherever we travel. However this time we were both very disappointed. The wall paper was peeling and dirty. The shower curtains were very dirty. It was obvious that they needed to be cleaned or exchanged. The carpet was dirty. There was no microwave or refrigerator in our room. Front desk staff was not friendly or welcoming. If this had been our first stay at a HIE we would never go to another one. We know that this particular hotel is not a representation of the quality of service and cleanliness that we have grown accustomed to during our past stays at HIE. To sum it up we are VERY disappointed. Will not go back to this hotel.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Cherokee/Casino on July 1st. Hotel was clean, room was very nice, nothing special. NO refrigerator. No problems to report. The free berakfast was awesome! Hot eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy and more and more. The best part is the location. It is right across the street from the casino. Easy walking distance, however, it was raining so we drove to the casino. Made reservations on line. Got the corner room for a couple bucks more. It is located at the back corner of the hotel. A little larger room and very quiet. Probably would not get the corner room next time. But would stay there again. Friendly people at check-in and check-in was easy.

Room Tip: Corner room was a little larger and located in the back corner of the hotel. Room was very quiet.

I guess I expect a little better from HIE. The room was terrific (as always), clean, comfortable, quiet. Check-in was not a "bad" experience but I wasn't made to feel welcome. The young lady working the desk seemed more interested in chatting with the young man also working the desk. I was never greeted, nor given the basic information about the hotel. Not a typical check-in for HIE.

Started a trip along the Blue Ridge Parkway here. I had a corner room on the second floor (non-smoking floor). Room was large, clean and had all the basics one could need. I had a function to attend at the Casino, this made for an easy home-base. The included hot breakfast has enough selection to start your day, parking plentiful.

Room Tip: floors are squeaky, get a room on the top floor to avoid hearing the people above you walk around

Stayed here one night while attending a concert at the casino. Great place and near to attractions. Room and service was great. Will stay here again next time in the area. Breakfast was good and had plenty to choose from. Just a short walk to the casino amd other sites in the area.
