While in Cherokee to see a Willie Nelson concert, my husband and I stayed at The Econolodge. Normally, this would not have been a hotel that we would have chosen. But most all other hotel options were booked. Upon arrival I noticed how clean and fresh the outside of the hotel looked. The office staff was sincerely friendly. The rooms... More

Stayed here last night after seeing Heart at the casino. The room was nice and clean but too small and not quite nice enough for the price. I realize it was a Saturday night but $89 should have been the max. The hotel is obviously an older one which they have tried to spruce up a bit. It still had... More

Stayed here while visiting Harrah's Casino. The two girls that checked me in, Magnolia Justice and Bria Noble, were very helpful and very personable. They made my stay pleasant! Rooms were clean and TV was nice.

We decided to stay in Cherokee and check out the casino on our way to Florida. Generally this was an adequate motel, just about what you would expect. We had a wall socket that was not working (by the tv), perhaps a fuse/breaker was tripped, since it also had the refrigerator plugged into it. Not much else to say. We... More

Stopped here to spend the night while heading home back to Iowa. Checked into the hotel it smelled very bad, smelled like must and dogs. Carpet was gross and looked like it hasn't been cleaned in a long time. Bathroom had a moldy shower curtain. I didn't want to lay on the sheet's because everything was gross in the hotel... More

A nice hotel overall. Good location under a mile away from casino. Clean room and bathroom. Only change I'd hope for is upgrade from double size to queen size bed...hard to fit 2 of us in it. It's also close to some great trout fishing (need a tribal permit for the river right near the hotel), and it's a short... More

Took a trip to Cherokee to visit the casino right after Christmas and booked a last minute room at the Econo Lodge. It's nothing spectacular, but the rate was reasonable, the room was clean, and the location is great. It's about a mile from the casino and you can easily walk into downtown Cherokee. Would definitely recommend it to anyone... More

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!
