Wife and I stayed here on an impromptu trip to the Harrah's Cherokee Casino while returning from a trip to see relatives. Picked this motel due to the late hour and proximity to the casino. Even the closeness of the motel to the casino can make up for the poor room. The room smelled musty when we opened the door....

The only problem I had was not being able to access the Wifi. It kept going out and would not connect. Otherwise for being close to the casino it was a nice place to stay. But bed was a bit uncomforable and pillows were lumpy so you may need to bring your own pillows of which I do anyway.

Although I am not sure if the main attraction ( Dollywood) is open or not but the cooler temperatures bring on lower prices on just about anything you'd want/ need to buy, the lines are much shorter and of course foot and car traffic are virtually nil. as the title stated I am...

It was a $50 a night room, no special amenities, but a clean comfortable bed! The shower and bath were spotless, big clear tv and chairs outside to enjoy the mountain view. Nice local diner right across the street too. The staff (owners) were very nice and even allowed us use of the laundry facilities. We will definitely stay again!

Worst motel EVER!! Room #1 AC did not work. Room #2 AC kept cutting off due to overload on extension cord/power strip. Room #3 OMG!!! No TV remote, toilet stopped up. Had an AC remote control that didn't work! All rooms stunk to high heaven. 6 of us got 2 rooms there and will NEVER go back!!!

Just one thing. Very Very Very dirty and nasty. I paid and went to my room and turned around and went back and got my money back and got the heck out of there. Don't see how they pass health inspection.!!!!!!
