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!

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

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.
