Lodging in Cherokee
The town of Cherokee, located entirely within the Cherokee Qualla Reservation, has become a major tourist area. Along with its placement at the doorstep to the most visited national park in the world, the addition of the Harrah’s Cherokee Casino has attracted still more hotels. While it is not as overrun with tourist attractions as the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area, it has a wide variety of services, and is a good compromise between quiet and full service. It lies at the south end of the Newfound Gap Road immediately outside of the park boundary.
