We booked a room in Cherokee, but for the wrong date. With limited availability in the entire town, we found the last room at Cherokee Trail. Clean rooms, excellent value, friendly staff, nice breakfast, and close to the casino. Exceeded our expectations. We will return!

The hotel has exterior entrances, a little older property but clean. The walls are very thin and you will hear your neighbor snoring through the night. The hotel is centrally located between Cherokee and Bryson City. Nothing special but it will do the job. Plenty of parking as

Went to Cherokee to enjoy the pretty mountains. This hotel was the best. Great price, great breakfast, very accommodating. Just perfect for a weekend getaway. When I get another weekend off, I'm headed back to this hotel.

I checked the entire bed with a flashlight.
Hello Rosalind, It depends on what day of the week you are staying in Cherokee. Mon-Fri there is a local public transportation system that runs. It is a modest fee, $1 I believe and it runs from 7am to 11pm. On Saturday and Sunday there is only cab service in Cherokee. The Chestnut Tree Inn is only about a mile away from the casino and we are a very small community, moving around here is not like moving around in Atlanta or Chicago. I hope this information helps.

There is a local transit service, however it does not run on Saturday and Sunday. It runs mid week and picks up at the hotel approximately every hour until 11pm

"Only 2 floors on any wings, and for wheel chair type most all first floor rooms would be easy to access."
"Not close to the casino but clean and quiet"
"Never had a bad room, so I cannot suggest anything better"
"We prefer 1st floor so we can park and walk straight into the room, with our vehicle in front of our door."
"Do not stay there"
US$72 - US$123 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
