“Good, clean hotel with great staff and breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

This hotel looks like a former Super 8, but it is better. Rooms are clean, hygiëne is good. Great hot (!) breakfast.Very friendly owner who even helped cook a hot breakfast with eggs, bacon and hash browns. Definitely a place to stay if you are in Cherokee.

19.7 miles West of Spirit Lake, this former Super 8 hotel has blossomed in to what many hotels can only aspire...a CLEAN, Comfortable, Friendly, CLEAN, Value Priced accommodation, that offers a self service breakfast good enough to actually tell others about!
We only stayed here 1 night but the manager on duty was very, very helpful and informative. The room was clean and everything worked. The beds were comfortable and sleep was peaceful. Housekeeping staff was smiling and friendly. The BREAKFAST was AMAZING! A large flat griddle was cooking bacon, sausage, and hash browns. Eggs were available as were waffles for cooking, too. Juices, breads, fruit were also available. This was absolutely the BEST PLACE for Value, Breakfast, Comfort and Friendliness! Also, Free Wi-Fi.
Anyone traveling in the area, or within striking distance, that needs a place for the night, should definitely STAY HERE! Can't say it enough...Great VALUE all around!

Several people in our group stayed at the Cherokee Inn. The rooms were clean, the owner was very friendly and accommodating, and the breakfast good. We needed a room where we could congregate and they had one that was perfect for us.

We stayed here for one night. The owner/staff were helpful in pointing out local attractions. The room was clean, comfortable, quiet and nicely decorated. Great value for the price. I would come back and stay.

Stayed here for two nights. This is a former Super 8 hotel and now is the Cherokee Inn. The rooms were pretty standard, nice and clean. There are a few signs of age and could use some slight lipstick and rouge updating.
The breakfast is phenomenal for a hotel. They have a griddle running where you can cook your own, eggs, bacon, sausage patties and/or hash browns. They also have English muffins, bagels, cold cereal, waffles, fruit and orange/apple juice.
The room was comfortable, but the chair in the corner was a bit tight in the king room. We had two rooms, a king and the two queens (I think). The two bed room was a tad more comfortable appearing as the wife and I were in the King room.
Everyone in our group raved about the comfort of the beds and all slept extremely well.
You can not beat this place for the price and breakfast.
Absolutely recommend people traveling through Northwest Iowa should put this toward the top of their list for a place to stay.

Hello. I want to Thank you for your time and effort you took to do a review for my motel. I just learned about it yesterday, so sorry for a delayed respond. I am very pleased on what you said. But yes I do understand it needs a little bit of more updating. But I have been doing the update one thing at time...and will do so as long as I am here. I am planning to do the upstairs window curtains during this summer and maybe the bathroom exhaust fans. Again Thank you very much for staying with us and using TripAdvisor.

I had to call the hotel for a few different reasons and the service was excellent.
I had a nice, quiet, clean, room! THANK YOU.
We had a very nice, much more selection for breakfast than I anticipated (make your own waffle machine, sausage, hashbrowns, bread/english muffins, cereal (hot and cold), beverages.
Wonderful stay from beginning to end. (4 guests, three rooms).
The value for the money was EXCELLENT.

I stayed at this hotel for five nights, and had very good experiences there.
The management of this hotel treated people very professionally and courteously. The continental breakfast is unique, in that there is a griddle where you can drop on individually-packaged sausages, and fry your own eggs. The very edge around the room had a bit of dust, but other than that, no major problems or issues encountered at this hotel!
