We just returned from a stay at the Best Western and I was pleasantly surprised. The motel is off the main drag in a quieter section of town, far away from the shops that line the road in Cherokee.
We arrived at noon and stopped to request a lower room, even though I know that check in was after 2:00. The girl at the front desk quickly changed out room number and told us we could go to our room.
The room was spotless, having just been cleaned. And added plus was it was located in the back of the motel with almost no traffic.
Everything worked in the room. No need to call the front desk for anything, except for a local phone # for pizza delivery.
The price was fair for this time of the year, being $10-20 cheaper than the motels on "the strip".
We didn't sample the motel's dining room, but Sunday morning had a breakfast buffet and was very busy. The dining room looked charming.
We will stay there again when we return to Cherokee.
