This was our second trip to this property. Both stays were great. The staff is very nice and helpful. They go out of their way to be helpful. This is a great location for the casino and has a kids drop and play adjacent to the hotel. My phone was lost while staying at the property and they found it and mailed it back.

This is an inexpensive and quality place to stay. My wife and I stayed Dec.23, 2013 and had a pleasant stay. The location is within walking distance to the Casino, or you can drive through the parking lot without getting back on the highway. The owners are very nice and the room was squeaky clean!!

My husband and I stayed overnight on the weekend. We had checked some of the other hotels in the area. Most near the casino where over $150 a night. We stayed here for under $100. So pretty good savings. But there is nothing fancy about it. You get a bed and a bathroom. There is a coffee maker in the room but that's it. No breakfast but it was OK plenty of other places near by. Its a bit outdated and a little rundown but it served its purpose at least for us. I would stay there again if back in the area.

We were looking for a place to spend the night that wasn't too expensive and ran across this little jewel. They allowed us to stay with our two dogs and the price was very good compared to the name brand hotels. The staff was nice, rooms clean and comfortable and good internet service.

Nice and clean. Comfortable beds, pet friendly and really nice man at the desk. Good price too compared to other motels in the area. Very close to the casino and just across the street from Wendy's. We will definitely be staying there again when we are in the area.

This motel is a great place to stay at. The rooms were very clean. The staff is very kind and helpful. We arrived before the check in time but decided to go on and rent the room for two nights. The desk clerk had to leave the office for little while so no one was in the office and the door was locked.. One of employees who clean rooms came over to us to see if we needed help. He explained we wanted to a room. She actually opened a door with her door key and let us in and told the desk clerk would be back soon and just go up the office and pay her when she returned. I thought that was awesome. The motel had benches outside each door which was nice. The pool was very clean. will definitely stay here join my next trip to Cherokee.

I enjoyed my stay at the El Camino Motel with my dad and cousin this past week (8-27-13--8-29-13). They had great rates, clean rooms, a clean pool, friendly service, and we could walk to the cassino,and Wendy's. We were also centered where we could get to all fun tourist places quickly and easily. I know where I'll stay the next visit to Cherokee.
