This is the best hotel to stay in, but it needs an updating. We stayed for five days due to a death in the family. We had to move out of our room on the fourth night, and into a new room. I wasn't happy. Evidentially, a couple has a long standing reservation every two months and request that room.... More

Good price for a clean motel in Cherokee. Staff is quite friendly, rooms are clean, quiet, comfortable bed. Breakfast included. Staff states that breakfast starts at 6 am...really wasn't ready until after 6:30, but other than that, no negatives.

This hotel looks like a former Super 8, but it is better. Rooms are clean, hygiëne is good. Great hot (!) breakfast.Very friendly owner who even helped cook a hot breakfast with eggs, bacon and hash browns. Definitely a place to stay if you are in Cherokee.

19.7 miles West of Spirit Lake, this former Super 8 hotel has blossomed in to what many hotels can only aspire...a CLEAN, Comfortable, Friendly, CLEAN, Value Priced accommodation, that offers a self service breakfast good enough to actually tell others about!

Several people in our group stayed at the Cherokee Inn. The rooms were clean, the owner was very friendly and accommodating, and the breakfast good. We needed a room where we could congregate and they had one that was perfect for us.

We stayed here for one night. The owner/staff were helpful in pointing out local attractions. The room was clean, comfortable, quiet and nicely decorated. Great value for the price. I would come back and stay.

Stayed here for two nights. This is a former Super 8 hotel and now is the Cherokee Inn. The rooms were pretty standard, nice and clean. There are a few signs of age and could use some slight lipstick and rouge updating. The breakfast is phenomenal for a hotel. They have a griddle running where you can cook your own,... More

I had to call the hotel for a few different reasons and the service was excellent. I had a nice, quiet, clean, room! THANK YOU.

I stayed at this hotel for five nights, and had very good experiences there. The management of this hotel treated people very professionally and courteously. The continental breakfast is unique, in that there is a griddle where you can drop on individually-packaged sausages, and fry your own eggs. The very edge around the room had a bit of dust, but...
