Please tolerate some bitching. OK, so probably most of you have never heard of Harrah's Cherokee, which is located on the Cherokee reservation in Cherokee, North Carolina. Beautiful country, nice drive from our home, not too far but not so close that we can go too often either. That being said, I am in no hurry to go back. First of all, this isn't a "real" Harrah's, they just manage the place for the Native Americans. So the points and comps are chinzy. The place is being renovated, casino being enlarged, another hotel tower being erected but as a result the shuttles weren't running from the parking lots and we had to park in a multi level parking garage which was tight parking and extremely crowded.
My biggest complaint is where did all my favorite slots go? Not the same type machines as down in Biloxi (OK there were two or three Wizard of Oz but that was about it.) We don't eat there anymore, the food went downhill several years ago and the buffet is expensive and not worth it. There is a new sit down (not buffet) Paula Dean's restaurant which we checked out while we were there and it is SUPER expensive. They serve liquor now for a charge, but they took away the self serve free coffee and cokes. You have to stand in a long line now to get anything. They give you NOTHING and the machines are tight as a gnat's a$$. They won't see me until next fall and that's only to have a nice drive to see the leaves turn and have a destination to stop at for a couple of hours. End of bitch.
