This "mom-and-pop" motel sits right on the river, literally just a few steps outside the room is the Tuckasegee River. A lot of "regulars" tend to stay there and several guests were taking advantage of the grills to cookout and enjoy supper on the banks of the river. We enjoyed sitting by the river at dusk and watching the beaver, some ducks and a nightly visit by a river otter. Fishing or at least feeding the fish with some bread is also enoyable for all ages.
Accomodations were adequate for this type of road-side motel. The room was clean and A/C worked well. Our room had two double beds, arranged in a unique position. Had to ask for more towels, but Jack (the owner, along with Julie) was right on our request. Room had a small refrigerator, microwave and 4-cup coffee maker. TV had plenty of options, which our teenage daughters enjoyed.
Including tax, our room ended up costing approx. $92, which in my opinion is rather high for this type of motel. No AAA discount offered or any other discounts I could determine. There is no continental breakfast included, another reason the $92 seems high for "just a motel room."
Enjoy the ambiance. It's convenient to Cherokee and lots of outdoor activities in western N.C.
