I was pleasantly surprised with this hotel! Clean room, friendly service, wonderful breakfast. This was a solo trip so I made the reservation for the king size on the 1st floor. The room was clean, the shower actually had a tub so I could take a long quiet bath. Walking distance to the River Park and quick drive to shops... More

Convenient location, rates are good, room clean, front desk very friendly. Free Continental breakfast but we did not try it since my daughter is very picky and was nothing she really liked. A pool would have been nice since it was very hot and not much to do in town if you do not hike. Bothered a nice park across... More

The Econo Lodge in Cherokee is located close to all the attractions that are key to a wonderful vacation to Cherokee, N.C. The staff was most helpful giving directions and recommendations on what to do and see during our stay. Our room was clean and contained all the amenities of better known hotel chains. The continental breakfast was ample but... More

My family and my inlaws stayed here in Cherokee for 2 nights. The hotel was a perfect location to shops and a short drive away from other places in the area. It was really nice being located next to the river and there were rocking chairs to sit outside the room and watch outside. My only problem with the hotel... More

The Econo Lodge in Cherokee is central to the township of Cherokee. Shops and food outlets all around. The casino is a mile up the road. Our room was well priced at US$88 for the night (booked through Booking.com) which included continental breakfast. There was a bath tub in the bathroom which is always nice. The king sized bed was...

I will definitely be returning here when in Cherokee! It started with a very helpful check in which went out of her way to assist in getting us in to a great room. The room was very nice for the price. Location is great for families to access downtown and especially the park across the street. No regrets at all... More

We stayed here just passing through and it met our needs as a large family. Our room was clean, and the staff was friendly. It did not have a microwave in the room, which passing through we didn't need, but if staying more than a night would be an issue. It met our basic needs.

Cherokee Econo Lodge is one of the most pristine, clean, nice properties we've ever stayed at, literally. The prices for the casino hotel were too expensive and the Econo Lodge said they were within a mile of the casino and across the street from a park, so I thought, what the heck. Well, my husband and I were extremely impressed... More

Sitting a little off the main drag its fairly quiet. Not a large room but was ok for a couple of nights. Not many channels on the tv and the WiFi worked when it wanted to. Staff said new internet provider having problems. Breakfast is not much, toaster waffles, oatmeal, cereal, and the area is small. I don't think the... More

Booked 2 nights. Arrived to find a rude Front desk girl. The room smells of cigarettes, but it's to late to cancel. We figured we will stick it out for one night. We are told we have to pay for both night, that it is to late to cancel. Very disappointing!
