We recently went to Cherokee for an MMA fight and stayed here. The front desk attendant was very friendly and helpful. The room we had was nice and clean, and the King sized bed was so comfortable. The only reason I didn't give it five stars was because we stayed on the third floor. There are stairs or a ramp... More

Very well located motel if you are going to hike in the Smokies. South trailheads are only a few miles away. It was overall clean and comfortable. TVs could be renewed but it's not that important. Value is ok.

Very welcoming, friendly staff. It's just a couple miles from Harrah's, and there's a shuttle for $2/person to go back and forth if you don't want to drive. Very clean room, we had 2 double beds. Could use a refrigerator but we just stayed one night so it wasn't that big of a necessity. Would stay again!

This is a renovated motel. Rooms were comfortable. Only thing missing was a refrigerator which nowadays is in about every motel. Would go back. Note that the Indian Reserve where this motel is located does not sell alcohol anywhere except at the casino.

Visited for three nights over the Labor Day weekend. Great comfy king bed, cool a/c and quiet. Although, the hotel was full the room was quiet. The pool is small and not too appealing. I would return. Within walking distance to local shops.

Found a dead roach on the night stand. The sink had not been washed. The carpet was dirty. Also, we had a room on the 3rd floor and there is no elevator. We left shortly after check in and did not stay.

Travelling with a senior can be difficult. Arriving in Qualla late - without reservations - but with two tired and cranky people being much more so. After visiting 2-3 motels, we took a room at the Cherokee Lodge and found it friendly and convenient to the casino and local sites of interest. The staffers we met were outgoing and informative....

We have stayed here numerous times while visiting Harrah's Casino. It is clean, easy access, and reasonably priced. I can't say anything negative about this resort. We love this place. Friendly staff and convenient for what you go to Cherokee for....the Casino. Give this place a try and you will not be disappointed at all. Also pet friendly. It is... More
