My wife recommended this hotel and she made a great choice. Our room was very nice, we were directly on the river. So relaxing listening to the water rush by, we sat on the balcony and watched the kids play in the river across from us at the campground. The room was clean comfortable, A/C worked well and we had... More

Looks like nothing for the street side, but the rooms are large, updated and comfortable. Having the balcony over the river is a huge bonus. We left the sliding glass door open (there is a screen door) so we could hear the river sounds and get the cool breeze. No need for air conditioning even in July. The staff is... More

This is an adorable little motel that has a great view of the river. Our room was very clean. We only stayed 1 night but, wish we stayed longer. It is in a great area plenty of places to walk to as well as a short drive to the casino.

If you're visiting the Smoky Mountains and you want lots of things to do (and don't mind the traffic and crowds that go with that), stay in Gatlinburg. But if you want a nice, quiet getaway and don't want to deal with all that, stay in Cherokee. They're both about the same distance from the park, but Gatlinburg is much... More

Loved the view from the balcony. Cell service is difficult but the wifi is ok. The employees were super nice and friendly. I would stay there again. There is not a great walkway to the river behind the motel but it is nice. Walking distance to several shops and restaurants.

We had the family suite. Perfect for traveling with a 10-year-old grandson. A queen bed for him, a king for us, separated by the wall with a TV for each. The room was comfortable and clean. French doors opening to look out over the river. Decent restaurant across the street. Away from the casino and tourist traps. Very helpful office... More

This place has no frills, but a cleam room. I have stayed here a few times when visiting Cherokee. The room is quiet, and the view from the deck is relaxing. You get what you are paying for so dont expect the Ritz, and you ill not be disappointed.

My Husband and I just loved this place. It is well maintained, the bed was fantastic, room was clean. I love the balcony and the river. We slept with the balcony door open just to hear the river and feel the cool air. We will be back for sure.

Room was adequate but I felt a overpriced for what you we getting. The washroom seemed to have water pressure problems and had a poor shower head. Friendly staff and the hotel was walking distance to restaurants. Very picturesque area and great river right outside your balcony.
