I had to choose the Rodeway because it was the only place that provided the sleeping arrangement I needed. When I called to confirm the reservation I was put off by the apathetic and dismissive attitude of the clerk. That impression was sadly confirm when I was check-in by the same person, Bagus, which needs customer service training urgently. The... More

Front desk service was excellent. They let us check in early without any delay. Room was very clean, extremely quiet and very comfortable. We had a balcony and could sit out and enjoy the river. The breakfast was very adequate and delicious.

We chose this hotel because it had a great balcony view of the river. It was a good sized suite, fairly new and modern. However, when we opened the balcony door to enjoy the view of the river below, little did we know that we were letting in a hoard of attack ladybugs! Minutes later the room was covered with... More

The Rodeway looks like a nice place when you approach it. It has a nice pool area and the little river behind was awesome (we went and skipped rocks like when were kids). Our first impression of the room was kinda mmmeh. It just seemed a little dingy and dark. Old cigarette burns on the tub and a little mildew... More

This hotel is pretty nice. It has a great view of the river. A close location to town. Room was nice. TV channels are limited. And the office closes until 7am, so if you need anything or want to check out early, it seems like it's not an option.

This clean quiet hotel is the perfect base for visiting the surrounding towns. Large rooms and great free breakfasts [eggs, sausage, waffles, cereals, yoghurt, English muffins, bagels, cinnamon rolls] and they have the softest pillows of any hotel. The best part is that every room has a balcony on the back where you can see and hear the river. And... More

A very beautiful property, obviously new. Nice landscaping, very clean beautiful lobby. Greeted with a smile, explained about all the amenities. Room was awesome. It had the largest jet tub we'd ever seen. The room was large enough you could actually walk around without walking into furniture. It had a separate stitting area and a private balcony overlooking the river.... More

We had requested a handicapped room. The bathroom was accommodating with a raised commode and grab bars in and around the tub. The lighting in the room left something to be desired, but it was adequate. The breakfast room would be a challenge if someone couldn't manage stairs, but had a variety of cereals, breads and fruit. The beds were... More

After visiting Clingman's Dome I spent the night at the Rodeway Inn in Cherokee NC. It was a good experience. The room was very clean and nice. The only negative was that the WIFI was not very accessible. I tried it a few times but no success. The breakfast was very good, eggs and sausage, etc. I would stay at... More

The lobby was quite attractive, as was the exterior of the hotel. I thought this looks good. And then we got in the room and noticed no microwave and no refrigerator. Probably not listed in Web listing, but first room we've had in years without any. Then, we find a toilet so close to the wall that it clearly doesn't... More
