My bride and I spent two nights at the inn and were pleasantly surprised! We read some of the reviews and were put off by some. Rooms were clean and staff was pleasant. It is located in a pretty cool part of Cherokee.I would not hesitate to return again.

This is the second time we've stayed at this hotel (the rooms have been freshened up since last we stayed here two years ago) and the third hotel we've tried in Cherokee. This is now our go-to hotel for price and convenience to the Great Smokey Mountains National Park. Also, several good breakfast joints nearby. The staff is friendly. The... More

Our two night stay should have been longer! The motel is very convenient to all the restaurants and attractions in Cherokee as well as the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Great Smokies National Park. Our room was quite big, clean and comfortable. Staff was quite nice.

One of the cleanest places I have ever stayed. Great customer service. Internet was fast. Pool was clean and the "Kiddie" pool was a plus. I would definitely Make this my place to stay when coming to Cherokee. You can tell there is great management at the Inn.

Having decided to stay in Cherokee rather than big Asheville we arrived and checked into the hotel. We then enquired where the closest bar and restaurant was located.

Nice but, All A/c units are full of dust like most hotels. The convenience store across the street has many pictures of thieves mostly women that stole from the store that makes the entire area feel unsafe.
