Good for a short stay to go to the casino not much else to do in Cherokee. Comfortable beds and clean typical lodge style

Nice Location But Room Smelled Bad
The serious issue was the bad smell of the room . . . we were there two nights. Room had a bad smell like moisture. Location was good and convenient. Initial check in was not good. Woman was on the phone and talking to cleaning at same time as checking us in. Basically gave me the keys and said it was the last room at the end. Never told us about breakfast or WIFI password or anything else. I would not stay there again.
