This motel will not break the bank, and it is an excellent choice in Cherokee, NC. The rooms are larger than most, exceptionally clean and very comfortable. Our room was next to a babbling brook--which was both peaceful and lovely. The motel is centrally located and within walking distance of all Cherokee attractions including a casino. The staff here was... More

My wife had aces not so good weeks at work , so I decided to take her to the mountains for the week end. Reserved a room at the Econo Lodge, who he'd seem a little high on the rates but better than the rest for being close to Harrahs. We got there Friday afternoon, did our usual things, of... More

This is an older hotel that has recently been renovated. I wouldn't have booked here if not for TripAdvisor reviews, so I'm glad to have read the feedback. I feel like we definitely got our money's worth, for sure. CONS: -The heater is beside the bathroom and not really in the same room with the beds, so we had to... More

I chose this motel because of the price, good reviews and proximity to Harrah's. The motel is located close to the downtown section of Cherokee and Harrah's. However, it is not walking distance to Harrah's. They do offer tokens for the trolley, but it ends around 11:00 pm. We chose to valet park ($12) at the casino. The room had... More

I don't usually stay in Econo Lodges but I had read that this hotel had undergone some renovations. I was very pleased that the beds and carpet were new and everything was very clean. Bathroom had new tile and was clean. I would definitely stay here again.

I booked a room for three people. I called a few days before to confirm and stated that we needed two queen beds. They said no problem. When we got there, they gave us a room with only a king-sized bed. I explained that I had requested two queens, but they could care less. They said they were fully booked,... More

First of all, keep in mind that this is an Econo Lodge not the Ritz Carlton. For the price (around $75/ night) you can't ask for anything better! It's very clean and recently updated (as of Jan. 2014). The decor is very nice. The heating system was a bit old and kind of noisy, but it's to be expected. Most... More

Older motel, but very, very clean! Was pleasantly surprised! Beds comfortable. Nice staff. Great prices-- better than the others we tried first. Seemed to be pretty full, but was very quiet. River runs beside it- very pretty!
