    A fun time
    We had an excellent time in the casino. The casino was very clean and provided a friendly atmosphere. All of the casino personnel we encountered were very friendly and helpful with our questions. I want to make note of a special bartender at the Diamond Lounge. Unfortunately, I cannot remember his name, but my wife asked for a special after dinner drink. Even though he was not familiar with the drink he made every effort to recreate the drink and I am pleased to say that he did succeed. Talk about providing superior customer service.

    A days fun place
    The HarrahsCasino in Cherokee is a fun place. Its like an adult arcade. The slot machines are fun to play. Besides gambling, the casino offers lots of restaurants, food courts, bars and shops. It's a fun place to spend the day. The landscaping is very pretty outside. Security is at its best here. All staff is very friendly. Casino is on an Indian reservation, so plenty of Native American decor. A great stop if you're near the Smoky Mountains.

    Casino in Cherokee
    It’s not Vegas but having said that it’s much bigger than I expected. Loads of different slots and various tables with varying limits both minimum and maximum. Easy access easy to cash out if u happen to win. 🤣 worth a visit if your anywhere near. We called in for a night as part of our road trip.

    It must be twice the size of Altantic City!
    Coming from New Jersey, where we are Caesars Diamond Plus members, we were excited to stop by the Harrahs in Cherokee during our stay in Asheville. The casino must be twice the size of the one in the famous gambling town of Atlantic City! So many different slots than back at home and so many more tables! Especially poker! Lost a point thought because most of the restaurants (that we could find) were under construction.

    Very nice high end casino
    The casino was very nice. It's huge and it's non smoking so that was huge for our group. The sportsbook is really nice, like Vegas quality. All the food options you could ever want. For the non smoking alone I'd go back to this casino even though I didn't have any luck

New expansion issues and horrible gaming issues on the floor.This casino is doing a huge expansion and the people that visit and play in the casino, are really paying for this out of there pockets. The slots are just not hitting and going into the free games. you are paying out a hole lot more out of your pocket and this VIRUS isn't helping at all by having many of the machines shut down for the social distancing that is required. My advice to all is to wait until next year when this expansion is finished.

I have been going to Cherokee casino even before they were bought out by Harrahs, at least since 1996. They have changed and seem all about the money now. NO smoking in casino, anywhere. It's a casino people, there should be smoking. And no free drinks. You expect people to spend thousands of dollars and you won't let them smoke and have to pay for their drinks. No. I am not going back here ever again, same goes for Harrah's Biloxi and Harrah's New Orleans. They are all crappy. They give you hardly any comps too. I am also a member at MGM and they give us hundreds of dollars of comps every month. Harrahs? Like 20 dollars. No thanks. MGM lets me smoke too.

After playing the Sequoyah National Golf Course we stopped for dinner and take our chance at the Casino. This is a HUGE Casino. The self parking was easy on a Tuesday late afternoon. Challenge was food - the nice restaurants are not open during weekdays for dinner. After following signs to dining we found the restaurants and buffet closed. The facility is big and no directories or staff to ask for directions or assistance. A lot if walking and frustration. Finally the Valet staff referred us to Brio’s Tuscan in the Casino. There we got on the list for a 1 hour wait. Having drinks we learned you could sit at the bar for dinner. After about 20 minutes we were able to sit at the bar to order dinner. In the Casino my husband liked the electronic black Jack with a live dealer. All playing on the electronic live dealer bet minimum $5 so all playing off same hand. I played penny slots. Many slots were not working properly - no lights showing on buttons to know what betting or even how to bet or cash out. We still made the most of the experience.

So my wife and I decided to check out the Casino while spending the weekend in Cherokee N.C. We had to park in the parking deck and walk in due to construction and no Valet parking possibly due to Covid-19 restrictions. We got in and masks on renewed our players cards. We were excited as we headed down the escalator especially since they now had table games new since our last visit many years ago. We were disappointed that we found no $5 blackjack table and only 2 $5 Craps tables in which one was totally electronic. My wife got on a slot machine and lost $20 in about 22 spins. It was a penny machine but had to play .88 cents every time. She won a few along the way but not enough to cover her loss every punch of the button. We may give it another shot again in the future.

My husband and I visited this past weekend and we could not enjoy ourselves for the fog of cigarette smoke permeating through out the building. You can smell it as soon as you enter and it gets stronger as you move about the casino. There are designated areas that say no smoking, but smokers do not abide by this and smoke everywhere in the facility. We had driven a long way so we stayed for a few hours. By the time we left, our throats were burning, our eyes were red and watery, and we couldn't stand the smell of your clothing and hair. We had to shower immediately after leaving and felt the effects of the cigarette smoke exposure for days after. Non-smokers should not have to be exposed to this carcinogen when your establishment does not enforce their own non-smoking policies. Why not have designated areas outside the casino area for those who want to smoke instead of making all of us suffer?

My Sister and I had visited the Mountains October 29th, 2020 and I wanted to stop by to see Harrahs coming back home. I was very impressed and so I planned a weekend the day after Thanksgiving with my finance'. We used the Valet Parking and they came to our car to check our temperature as they checked us in.
Everything was so nice; No smoking (thank goodness), hand sanitizer everywhere, our room was clean, nice and big!( wished I had a microwave in the room ) Friendly people and I even won some money. Yeah ! So much fun and now I want to go back. They took great precautions for the COVID Virus and everyone wore their masks. I have terrible allergies so I would be happy if they never let people smoke in an enclosed environment again. It was nice and I did not smell smoke!
I have a friend who goes there, Vegas and Mississippi so she met us in Cherokee which made our first trip more fun! She was able to give us the tour first. We live in the same town so maybe she will go back with us soon!

I have been to Vegas and also to Atlantic City at the Trump Hotel several years ago.
For our Anniversary my husband and I went to Harrahs in Cherokee this past week.
What a difference.Both Atlantic City and Vegas were much cheaper and you could actually win.Not at Harrahs.It appears they are just out to take all of your money with no return.Very tight machines.
Everything at Harrah's was very expensive, including the room which I might add had horrible box springs that made a terrible noise every time you moved.There was also a metal piece sticking out of the bed that my husband caught and cut his leg on.Coffee was not replenished in the room as advertised.
They had good restaurants, however most were not open and what was open had a long line and was very pricey.

to who it may concern stay as far away from Harrah's Cherokee casino as possible unless you only like losing money payouts are awful used to have winners posted everywhere now all that happens is 7 star players being evicted for being upset over table and slot play never have I saw a casino which engulfs hundred dollar bills so quickly and often doesn't pay anything on free spins in bonus play. the only competition in NC is the other Harrah's casino .I would advise another place Las Vegas or Atlantic city and by my personal experiences would avoid Harrah's and their sister properties. personally can't wait for two kings casino to open and have somewhere new in NC maybe some competition will help Harrah's in Murphy and Cherokee to rethink the more management tight machines and more management and poor comps

While visiting Asheville, I decided to make the drive to Harrah's to play some blackjack. Prior to the visit I was unable to find good information about the Blackjack rules and conditions. Below you will find the conditions for the main casino not the high limit area which I didn't visit. These observations were made mid-week late in the morning. I did not stay at the hotel.

1) $15 minimum table 6 to 5 payout on blackjacks, hit soft 17's, split Aces once, double on any 2 cards, double after split.

2) $25 minimum table same as above but 3 to 2 payout on blackjacks.

3) Must play double bet to play 2 hands

The casino is quite nice. We had an enjoyable lunch at the Brios Tuscan Grill. The cocktail waitress was very friendly.

Once the new casino opens at Kings Mountain, this casino may have to improve rules to be more competitive.

Hello fellow casino goers, I visit Harrahs Cherokee 3 to 4 times a years . This was the the absolute worst. This was the second time since COViID . The first time they were limiting the number of people they allowed in the casino so they said. They were limiting the number of players at table games blackjack, roulette. Poker. Ok kewl this time I go 18-21 feb 2021 they are letting any and everyone in the casino with table restrictions be ing enforced so you have all these people in the casino , no social distancing Standing around because only 3 people can play blackjack or roulette at a time. That
is just part of the problem they constantly raise table limits. No grandfathering allowed. This is a strategy they use to get people to get up from the table the faster you loose money the next looser can set down. I am sure they have lost business but more thought needs to be put into how the casino is being run during this time. All they care about is let’s pack them all in here and they spend money on food, drinks over priced hotel room more drinks and for get they are their for enjoyment, New Casino in Kings Mountain will be in a better location other things to do around the casino malls etc. Harrahs future may be that of a retirement home. Want be going back . Lets all not go for 6 months and see what happens pass the word we all have to do it.
