We based our mountain road trip at the Chestnut Tree. The hotel check-in was easy and the breakfast was satisfactory. We spent our days in the Smokey Mountains, Gatlinburg, TN, and the Blue Ridge Parkway. We arrived late at night, took showers, and went to bed. We rose early the next morning, had breakfast and went out for the day. The hotel was adequate for our needs. The wifi is spotty so if you need to work, this is not the place to be. If you need to shower, sleep and explore, you cannot beat the price. If you are looking for a resort with lots of amenities, this is not the place to stay.

We have stayed here in the past and will stay again. But this time we had a bad experience. The room smelled as soon as we entered. Supposed to have been a non smoking room which we requested but it just smelled of old smoke. The bathroom seemed to have a plumbing issue, the toilet, sink and tub would not go down like they should. We will stay again, but request not to be in room 319.

The Rolling Hills Lodge is one of Cherokee's nicest hotels. It's pretty new. Managed by a very friendly nice couple. Taken care of by a local native Cherokee family who have a lot of pride in their work. The two groups work together to provide guests with a great experience!
The Lodge is right in the newer shopping area of Cherokee. Restaurants are very close. The road out front leads to the National Park. Great shopping all around.
Each room has rocking chairs out front. The bathrooms are tremendous. The rooms are moderately sized. Just enough space. So clean. Beautiful linens. Comfortable beds.
I will most definitely return to this lodge. I just loved my time there!
