Very friendly proprietor, very clean and comfy motel rooms, but the balconies overlooking the Oconaluftee River are worth the price by themselves. Cherokee is on the quiet side of the Great Smokies NP, and you're literally a quarter to half mile from the park entrance. While there are commercial establishments, most close before sundown, and there's nothing akin to the... More

This motel never fails us;) The peace and tranquility are inspiring. Your balcony puts you in the river, not at the edge. The ducks and wildlife show just amazes me everytime we stay here. Only drawback to this hotel is there is no microwave in the rooms, although there is one in office, which closes for the evenings. Price was... More

We have stayed at River's Edge twice this summer. In July, we stayed in the family suite (on the first floor) and in August, we stayed on the second floor in a double room. The outside of the building isn't anything "special". It looks like a motel. DON'T LET THAT FOOL YOU!!! The inside of the rooms are really nice.... More

The only tricky part of this wonderful little motel is it's parking lot. We found if you parked all the way at the end, beyond the motel office, it was easier to back out. Now that , that one negative is out of the way let's look at what is so right about this peaceful little motel. The rooms are... More

My husband & I wanted to get away for Mardi Gras and headed to Cherokee without reservation. We arrived about 4pm and saw the River Edge Hotel. We went in the lobby and was told we were the only guest for the next few days and no one was going to be there. They gave us a great rate and... More
