We have stayed numerous times through the years. Walking distance to most attractions, always clean and quiet. Wish there were more rooms with a view on the river. Hope to stay next year. Always our sleep stop in Cherokee.

We stayed Friday night on a whim to go to Harrah's and the motel was perfect for what we needed. It was the cleanest motel we had stayed in! There were brand new large flat screen tvs. The staff were all very friendly and I would definitely stay again!

We went to the hotel and booked it at the front desk. Charged us with extra $26 for early check in when there were rooms available. We paid total of $138 for one room for a night. The room and bathroom was clean. After I have woken up, I realized that there were stains on the sheets as it looked... More

I am sorr that you were unpleased with your stay. After we moved you for the night and spoke with you we viewed our video from our security system cameras and found that the sheets for your room were changed the morning of your arrival.

This hotel is nice and clean, the desk staff were very helpful and polite and the rooms were nice and comfy. My only suggestion would be to maybe upgrade the continintal breakfast a bit. The location is really nice, you can walk to the musuem and shops and its just a short drive to the casino. The river running through... More

We visited on friday night and Saturday night and enjoyed the visit so much we decided to stay an extra night. The staff was amazing the entire weekend and the room was clean and comfortable. It was close to all the shopping and attractions in Cherokee. The only thing I had a problem why was price.

The location was great, in the heart of Cherokee and close to the GSMNP entrance. The breakfast was fine and the breakfast room was nice. The room was clean and up to date with no offensive smells. It was also Cherokee owned, which I liked.

Took a spur-of-the-moment motorcycle ride through the Smokies. Planning one day at a time can make overnight hotel arrangements somewhat sketchy, but found this Econo-lodge online the morning of our stay and reserved one of two available rooms. Paid very little attention to anything other than price & city. Upon arrival we were very happy with the appearance, location and... More

Spent two nights here for a motorcycle event in town and the place was great for our needs. Basicly a comfortable clean bed, large shower/bathroom, and an a/c that works great.

The hotel is good for a stopover but not for much more. The ladies at the front desk really give you the impression, that you are disturbing their whatever. I have never seen so unmotivated ladies having to be there and wanting not to be. We asked for a room on the first floor because of heavy luggage. Sorry. No... More
