This property burned down in March 2014. An iconic landmark in Cherokee for over 3 decades, this property is no longer available. The nearest motel to this one is the Drama Motel just down the road. It is still close to the Outdoor Drama and other attractions and sits on the bank of the river.

I was on a motorcycle trip from Florida riding the Blue Ridge Pkwy. I stayed the night in Cherokee at this motel. The staff was very friendly and the location was perfect, right across the street from all the shops, and the Cherokee Indian museum was just a short walk away. The rooms were a little outdated, you actually used... More

Every year I take a trip just to chill and get away from stresses of life. I just stop where ever I am at the time. I was in Cherokee and stumbled on this place. It is locally owned, so I was not sure how it would be compared to the "Big Names." I can readily say that I have... More

Very dated motel. The whole place needs to be redone. The price was good considering prices in Cherokee. The room was very dated. I guess if you arrive late and are very very tired it would be ok for one night stay, but I would not stay for more than one night. A decent motel would have cost twice as... More

I've visited Cherokee, NC for years and have have tried different hotels from the big chains to the smallest family businesses. The Pageant Inn is the best combination of location, value and cleanliness. The same family has owned/operated the Hotel for almost 50 years and you have the feeling of being welcomed into someone's home when you check-in. Enjoying the... More

Good location. Needs updating badly. Killed 6 spiders the first night. Had to bend down to use the shower. No water pressure. Don't think I will be staying here again. Wasn't worth the money. Was glad I wasn't staying for more than 2 days.
