Reviewed 16 December 2012

Have stayed here twice, first time was in 2005 and again in April, 2012. Both times were great. Rooms have a balcony that overhang the river so you can leave your screen door open to listen to the river flowing back without any security worries. Nice rooms, staff was great, it is a no frills no thrills hotel though and the price is comparative to most others in the area that offers more amendities (i.e. pool or breakfast) so in my opinion you are mainly paying for the privilege of being on the river and a really nice and clean room. Conveniently located to everything that Cherokee has to offer.

Room Tip: All rooms are great.

This was a surprise. Don't pass this place up. We stayed here On November 12, 2012 for $59.95 in a double. Very convenient, extremely clean. Sitting on the balcony and watching the water is very calming. Debbie, our host was very informative and helpful.

Room Tip: There is also a great restaurant called Paul's on the other side of the road. We had dinner and...

This place was awesome! While it doesnt look like a lot from the outside, the rooms are super clean and have obviously been recently remodeled. Lovely color scheme. The balcony was the best part! Right beside the rushing river and across from a campground - gives you a lot to look at. It was a wonderful stay. Patty helped us too and she was super nice, accomodating and had good information.

Very clean and friendly. Formerly, we have stayed at the casino when in Cherokee but it has gotten so big that we wanted to stay somewhere else. We have not stayed in a small motel in over 20 years, but based on the reviews, decided to try this one. We were very pleased. Not a lot of anemities (don't use them anyway) and only one towel set per person (more if you asked), but all in all, the balcony over the river and the price makes up for those. We will definately stay again.

We stayed on lower level, very clean , bed was very comfortable, liked the balcony over river and close acess to casino and Gatlinburg. I don't think our room was one of the "newer Renovated" rooms but it was fine, Has a small fridge . The lady who checked us in was Patty super nice and helpful. Downside was they are stingy on towels, and decided not to give us maid service on our last full day so I had to go ask for towels, and Different staff member was very unfriendly.

Room Tip: Ask for updated room like in their ads, and for extra towels

No complaints and right on the river. In fact, it felt like we were actually on the water. Stayed in the middle, upper section so it would feel that way. Spent a lot of time out on the balcony. Loved the sound of the water. Rooms were nice and modernized. Parking was a little difficult since it was right on the road, but overall a great place and would stay here again.

Room Tip: upper floor, middle of hotel is the best in my opinion.

A very nice smaller motel/hotel (family owned I understand) situated in Cherokee, NC. My wife and I went to visit the Harrah's casino and stayed at this hotel based on other reviews. They were very spot on!!! A very nice, clean, reasonably priced hotel.

Our room (and I believe all rooms) have a balcony overlooking the very nice stream. The best part of this was we were able to open the balcony door and keep it open to enjoy the sounds and nice breezes. We even left it open while we were gone.

The ONLY drawback we talked about was the coffee maker and coffee. Only enough for 2 small cups. This was a very small drawback.

We would definitely return and stay here again.
