Stayed here last night after attending a concert at the casino. We were quite pleased. Rooms were recently remodeled, were clean and very comfortable. The balcony and view were lovely even though this time of year not too useable. Also very quiet despite being right on the road. Definitely recommend.

Stayed: December 2012, traveled as a couple

Have stayed here twice, first time was in 2005 and again in April, 2012. Both times were great. Rooms have a balcony that overhang the river so you can leave your screen door open to listen to the river flowing back without any security worries. Nice rooms, staff was great, it is a no frills no thrills hotel though and the price is comparative to most others in the area that offers more amendities (i.e. pool or breakfast) so in my opinion you are mainly paying for the privilege of being on the river and a really nice and clean room. Conveniently located to everything that Cherokee has to offer.

Room Tip: All rooms are great.

This was a surprise. Don't pass this place up. We stayed here On November 12, 2012 for $59.95 in a double. Very convenient, extremely clean. Sitting on the balcony and watching the water is very calming. Debbie, our host was very informative and helpful.

Room Tip: There is also a great restaurant called Paul's on the other side of the road. We had dinner and...

This place was awesome! While it doesnt look like a lot from the outside, the rooms are super clean and have obviously been recently remodeled. Lovely color scheme. The balcony was the best part! Right beside the rushing river and across from a campground - gives you a lot to look at. It was a wonderful stay. Patty helped us too and she was super nice, accomodating and had good information.

Very clean and friendly. Formerly, we have stayed at the casino when in Cherokee but it has gotten so big that we wanted to stay somewhere else. We have not stayed in a small motel in over 20 years, but based on the reviews, decided to try this one. We were very pleased. Not a lot of anemities (don't use them anyway) and only one towel set per person (more if you asked), but all in all, the balcony over the river and the price makes up for those. We will definately stay again.

We stayed on lower level, very clean , bed was very comfortable, liked the balcony over river and close acess to casino and Gatlinburg. I don't think our room was one of the "newer Renovated" rooms but it was fine, Has a small fridge . The lady who checked us in was Patty super nice and helpful. Downside was they are stingy on towels, and decided not to give us maid service on our last full day so I had to go ask for towels, and Different staff member was very unfriendly.

Room Tip: Ask for updated room like in their ads, and for extra towels

No complaints and right on the river. In fact, it felt like we were actually on the water. Stayed in the middle, upper section so it would feel that way. Spent a lot of time out on the balcony. Loved the sound of the water. Rooms were nice and modernized. Parking was a little difficult since it was right on the road, but overall a great place and would stay here again.

Room Tip: upper floor, middle of hotel is the best in my opinion.
