Very close to the Bingo hall and the Casino; also on the side to Bryson City for some sight seeing etc. Rooms were as shown; good beds, clean bathroom. The best is the morning BUFFET that is FREE to two people in the room; any others only pay $7.95. I think that is a great value!

This is a cute hotel, approximately two miles from Harrah's Cherokee Casino. It was comfortable. The towels were fluffy and the bed was comfortable. The only problem we ran into was the huge dog in the room next to us, barking at everything that moved outside of its window. The dog finally decided to go to sleep, as did we......

Upon arrival, lobby was very nice. Had been told but Harrah's they had "completely remodeled" Chestnut Tree Inn about a year ago. Entered our roomto find the bed at an incline. Thinking it may have been the way it was made ( covers tucked to thick at foot of bed), was not the case! Mattress was wore out, sagged in...

Great check in, friendly staff, clean rooms. Only one major flaw in our room.. we had no room darkening drapes. So security light outside shone through. .very annoying. Fantastic breakfast buffet with lovely servers. Definitely would stay again, just would like to block out light in room. :-)

I made several pictures for this review. Pictures tell a thousand words. The lobby was nice as well as the décor, art, and restaurant which is only open for breakfast. The room was disappointing but we did not see a bug one not even a trace. It is a old place with old furniture and nasty carpet. The bath is...

Room was a decent room, every staff member we came across was friendly and willing to answer questions we had about the area. Absolutely loved the older woman that did the seating in the morning who was very chipper and had cheerful tops on. Food tasted great.

Took our Family to NC to experience the Polar Express Train Ride. Booked This Faux..tel in advance and after checking in with the afternoon shift I honestly do not know how they stay in business.

I recently stayed at the Chestnut Tree Inn. The reviews for this property were primarily decent. The lobby is well-decorated and the staff were accommodating during check-in. The shuttle takes you straight to the Casino and the Breakfast is one of the better Motel breakfast's available in Cherokee. The rooms were basic but generally clean and comfortable.

We came to North Carolina in order to enjoy the Polar Express train ride during the Christmas season. The Chestnut Tree inn was a good value and had fair reviews. Our room was clean but had a very musty smell. We also noticed some black color mold on the bathroom ceiling and in the Bible that was in the drawer....

All I can say for the place is it's clean and spacious. During a 3 night stay (everything else booked solid) I was totally under impressed with this hotel. I'm not picky and it takes a lot for me to rate places a two...they managed. 1. The constant rattling of the heat unit made it impossible to watch tv without...
