This traditional-style motel offers very good value if you are visiting Cherokee. The rooms are a good size and perfectly clean and comfortable. They are well appointed and come with a fridge and coffee maker. Breakfast at the hotel is of the cheap buffet variety but is OK if you are happy to make do with juice, cereal, coffee and toast in the morning, which we are.
The hotel is very convenient for downtown Cherokee, but to be honest - there is sod all in downtown Cherokee other than cheap tourist shops selling cheap tourist tat.
A mile up the road is the Harrah Cherokee Casino, and even if you don't like gambling you should note that this is the only place in town to get a beer (and you don't have to gamble - you can just sit at the bar).
