“25th anniversary”
Reviewed 13 November 2013

My husband and I drove to Cherokee after the Martinsville race. It was our anniversary. We enjoyed our stay is an older motel. If you are expecting the Ritz or a chain hotel, you will be disappointed. But our room was clean and we loved the balcony by the river with the rocking chairs.

We stayed at this hotel for two nights. Older hotel but room was very clean and the service was very nice and friendly. The location was very good. Will stay here again. Its not an upscale ritzy place but clean and good price for the location.

I usually don't stay in Mom & Pop hotels as I fear they are not clean, but this one was a pleasant surprise. It is directly opposite the much more expensive Comfort Suite Inn. My non-smoking room had no trace of cigarette smoke. I liked the thick pile (clean) carpet on the floor. The room was clean and tidy and spacious. There was a balcony with a couple of chairs at the back of the room, overlooking the river. This hotel has no breakfast. Overall a good place to stay.

We usually stay here once a year, usually on a Saturday night on the way to Gatlinburg, TN. to hike the Smokies for a few days. There is a little Catholic church up on the hill for Sunday services. The rooms are large, the beds and pillows are great, and the peaceful river below has a calming influence on both of us that calls us back year after year. Depending on the season, the price is pretty reasonable as well. Leaf turning season makes prices rise higher than we like. Rooms are clean, the shower is good. It's probably the best value in Cherokee. There is no pool, which makes that a deal breaker during summer months

Room Tip: Stay on the second floor for the best view

We arrived in Cherokee one night before we were to check in for our cabin in Bryson City and just wanted a room that was clean. Newfound Lodge was not bad at all. It was $68.00 for our family of 3. Room was clean, wall paper was ripped in a couple places but wasn't a big deal to us. My husband and son loved the boardwalk that runs along the river behind the lodge. Balcony overlooking the river was great. Place could use some TLC but was clean, people were helpful. The beds were kind of hard but we're just used to softer mattresses. Given the price, I was really pleasantly surprised. If you're looking for a spot in Cherokee that is low cost that gives you access to the river for fishing this is a GREAT spot.

Looking for a room for Labor Day weekend, we didn't expect much. Hotel is old but located on the river with a nice balcony and rocking chairs. Very peaceful and really enjoyed the viw. TV was old, but we never used it. Yes, bed linens were old, but clean. Bathroom small, nothing extra, but it worked fine. Our shower curtain was fine, but small towels lowever we had what we needed. Bed was comfortable, but pillow was hard. I'll bring my own next time. No breakfast, but who cares for the price. It has frig and codffee maker which we didn't use. Overall we were pleased and would recommend it if you don't mind an old hotel. They recommended breakfast down the road, Pete's Pancakes . . Nice. Look for review
