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. I did think the price was high for what we got BUT the other hotels was priced even higher cause of the weekend and the events that was in... More

The room was basic, it served it's purpose..a place to sleep instead of my car while visiting Cherokee.When I paid for the room I hadnt planned on third, brown, tiny, fast moving guest but he/she made a quick appearance and I never saw any more although I was paranoid for the remainder of the trip. The roach could have come... More

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

We really wanted to stay at Harrahs, but they were completely sold out, so we noticed here on Trip Advisor that this Motel was rated very well. We agree with many of the reviews. This was a basic, clean, and quiet Motel. If you don't need anything fancy, this will be perfect for you. Friendly employees at the desk. Satisfying... More

Found this place after exiting Great Smoky Mountain National Park, great location to area attractions - just not much to offer on this end of Cherokee. Shops were junky at best, with cheap imitation goods - not much to offer within walking distance....

This hotel is in the perfect location to visit the local attractions. Our room was clean and the staff was very pleasant and helpful. The grounds and building are well maintained. It is close to the entrance to the National Park, Harrah's Casino, restaurants and shops. We visited the complimentary breakfast buffet for coffee but noticed a variety of breakfast... More

This was a great little hotel to stay for a weekend retreat! The staff were very kind and accommodating during check in. And, the room was quite comfortable as well. Sheets are very soft and rooms are nice and clean too. I would certainly recommend it!

My husband & I stayed 1 night. Room was clean and nicely decorated. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Highly recommend and a great value for the money. The casino is close but you still need to drive to get to it.
