I love this hotel!!! I race in the Cherokee Harvest 5k and half marathon every year! This is my choice of hotel for this race!!!! The people are so friendly. The location is incredible! If you are going to the race, you can actually walk (or run your warm up) to the starting line from this hotel!! If you are not a racer and you are interested in the cultural side of Cherokee again, this is the hotel for you!! It's right up the road from the museum!!!! The rooms are spacious, and the views are spectacular!!! I highly recommend this hotel, and I plan to stay here again and again!!!

My husband & I wanted to get away for Mardi Gras and headed to Cherokee without reservation. We arrived about 4pm and saw the River Edge Hotel. We went in the lobby and was told we were the only guest for the next few days and no one was going to be there. They gave us a great rate and loaded us down with towels. The room was very clean. There wasn't a lot of traffic this time of year. Other than the bubbling river it was so quiet. We walked over to Paul's to eat and walking back the Elk was in the middle of the road. We quickly got to the balconies and watched them till it was too dark to see them. It was a very nice weekend. I would definately stay there again.

Room Tip: Get lower rooms.

Very nice clean hotel with balconies overlooking the river. Would stay again. Fuzzy picture on TVs but there to enjoy nature not watch TV. Nice helpful staff. Great value. No breakfast but there is coffee in the room.

We selected to stay in Cherokee for the night as it is the start of the Blue Ridge Highway and had good access to the Smokies
I do the hotel selection for trips that my husband and I take and I chose this motel based on reviews on this web site. The carpeted balcony and the location overlooking the river were a plus but the room was fair and the fan in the bathroom was overly loud. I am sensitive to noise and could still hear the cars on the road overnight. Given the reviews I also expected extremely friendly service at the desk but found it to be just average.
The location was good. We were able to walk to dinner at Paul's and then had breakfast the pancake restaurant. Getting out was not a problem as long as one is careful. Should we ever make another trip to the area I would most likely choose one of the chains.

My husband, step son and I spent the night here last week and it was quite nice. Not the Hilton but the room was updated, the balcony over the river was very relaxing. It is extremely close to the road but as long as you are careful there's no real problem. The office closes at pm which they tell you ahead of time which is nice. When we got up to check out at 9:30 the next morning the office was not open so we along with some other travelers left our keys in our rooms. No instructions on what to do if they weren't open and no 'drop box' to put the key in. Over all a good clean place to stay.

Room Tip: No fluff here, no swimming pool but the river balconys are relaxing.
