It was $75 on a thursday night. Was really looking for cheaper from the reviews. It was clean and the staff very nice! The private balcony overlooking the river is nice. Would most likely stay again. Close to Harrahs too.

My niece, my sister and I stayed 3 days in Cherokee,NC at this lodge. We booked online and our room was ready when we arrived. The lodge is older, but I expect that in the older areas of Cherokee. The staff was friendly and helpful and the room was clean and functional. All rooms are on the river and you can walk all the way down to the river . We tubed to Island Park and it was great fun. There are restaurants and shops that you can easily walk to. You can also get on Parkway or to GSMNP easily with not as much downtown traffic. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: All are river front

My family & I stayed here for 2 nights. Room was large, clean & had a vintage smell that reminded me of trips the GSMNP region as a kid back in the 70's. They still use room keys ( my kids were like " what ? " ) & not a computer in sight !! My reservation was correct & room was ready as promised @ check-in time. Worth looking @ !! Great view of river !!

Stayed here for 2 nights. A very nice room with a great balcony with rocking chairs overlooking the river. Within walking distance of several restaurants and tourist shops.A really nice place to stay. An older motel but dog friendly and the staff is wonderful. We will certainly stay here again.

I've liked the Newfound Lodge ever since I was a kid and vacationed here with my family many years ago. I've stayed there twice in the last year and had very enjoyable experiences each time. The location is great and several places are within walking distance. There is a river behind the hotel providing nice scenery from your room. The staff is nice and friendly, and the pricing is reasonable. I look forward to my next stay.

Room Tip: I recommend the 2nd floor. You get a better view of the river.

Giving 4 stars for the excellent service when we checked in. Very friendly and helpful staff. The hotel is a little "vintage" but very clean and comfortable. It's right on the river so the view is nice from your balcony. The hotel was well maintained and had everything you need for a good night's sleep. The price was comparable to other hotels in the area.
