We decided to stay at the EconoLodge in Cherokee because it was a budget-friendly hotel that could actually accommodate our large family in one large room. The hotel was very easy to find and the young lady working the front desk was very pleasant. She offered us a room on either the first or second floor (I chose the 1st... More

After a VERY rough first day of our vacation, which included our truck alternator going bad at 10 o'clock at night 3 1/2 hours away from home among other things, we pulled into the Econo Lodge and met Ashley, who was a complete angel!! She helped us get a room on the ground floor since we had a truck full... More

I was impressed by the cleanliness of this motel. An employee was even washing off the concrete walk in front of the rooms as I arrived. This place is very close to Harrah's Casino and to Downtown. It is also very quiet and well-lit. I will be back!!!

After 20+ years of commercial internet, when will some hotels like Econolodge Cherokee realize that good internet connections are just as important as running water and air conditioning? Connections were very bad. Plus, this place must be a haven for motorcycle enthusiasts who arrive at all hours and love to wake people up by revving their loud motors, making the... More

This hotel was very clean and appealing for our stay. Only problem was that we had a non smoking room and people were outside of our room smoking making a mess with ashes and cigarette butts everywhere. Not to appealing. Don't know if we would come back again.

We usually will not stay at a Econo lodge but this one was an award winner so we gave it a try. Glad we did, It is very clean neat. The hotel is about 7 minutes from the casino and a walk to town. We had a problem with the air conditioner where it either stayed running or we had... More

This was a very clean, well managed motel. I was pleased to see some more unusual items at breakfast such as boiled eggs and yogurt. I wish the WiFi had been stronger but the $71 was the best price in Cherokee.

I give 5 stars because we had a good room for 63$. The lady was very kind with us. Clean room, odorless, quiet and close to every need we have ( restaurant, access to many scenic roads, etc). Wouls go back again. Trip advisor wants more comment but no more to say.
