We prefer this motel when we stay in Cherokee and it has always been our 1st choice. However on our last few visits we have notice a lot of things that need repare. Last month the baloney outside out room had a bad decaying spot on the edge of ceiling and an over grown tree had branches that invaded part... More

There are a lot of places to go eat in Cherokee I've tried quite a few, most of which aren't worth telling. Found this place sort of by accident. From the outside nothing to get excited about. The sign advertising restaurant and buffet. My wife not being the buffet person I am. We went in I told my wife I... More

We visited Cherokee for a quick pre-return to school visit and booked upstairs rooms for my wife and me (king), and my daughter, her husband and their 12-year-old son (two queens). We had stayed at this place 17 years earlier. It looked about the same as it had looked way back then. The clerk was exceedingly friendly and helpful. The... More

I came to town late pm with family and dog. This place was good. Remember this is an old town and too much chance will take away from it. Comfy beds hot shower and a river view. All in town. I'd stay there again. The cost was reasonable and the staff was very friendly.

This great place is right on the river which runs through town, is older and may scare some potential folks away because of the age of the property. We checked out all available properties for a last minute stay in Cherokee, and settled on this one. The friendly young man at the front desk allowed us to look at one... More

Front desk was pleasant and prices are reasonable. Room was very clean and loved sitting on the balcony at night. Even seen the elk one night. The elk walked right by my room in the water. Lots of restaurants and shops within walking distance.
