My husband and I always come to Cherokee every summer and this year we celebrated out 30th wedding anniversary.We have stayed at other places on the Reservation and being Cherokee myself I have a very big traditional heart and from my experience this is the place to stay.We went in and was greeted by a very friendly older lady and she tols us the rates and we wernt sure if we wrer staying over an extra day so she place a "maybe staying another day " on our ticket.the room was big and cozy,very clean,tissues,coffee maker with coffee packs,a refigerator,telephone,couch 1 bed,2 endtables and a coffee table,nice TV,a Bible.The outside was very nice and there was a few mosquitoes because of the river but a good spray of Listerine sent them packing for the rest of the time we were there,the river was flowing real good,watched the birds and fed some.Parking was plenty and we were in and out alot.I would highly recommend this place compared to the other place that we stayed at,and also you dont hear your neighbors and the balcony is very private

3 friends on a roadtrip, decided it was time to stop for the night and just picked a place. Chris behind the counter gave us a little break on the price due to getting two rooms and it just being an overnight stay. After checking in I got a call in the room, Chris through habit had processed the full price on my credit card, I hadn't even noticed. He went out of his way to redo the charge and appoligized. You don't get any better than that for honest service. On another note: the rooms were clean and comfortable. I am planning a trip down again next year to stay in the area for a few days. I do plan to use Newfound.

My huband and I accidently found the Newfound Lodge a few years ago while on vacation....and we've stayed there every year since! The rooms are very simple, nothing fancy...but the balcony overlooking the river is the reason we stay! We sit in the rocking chairs watching the water, listening to the sound of the river, and talk the evening away. Like coming home after a long day of travel and sight seeing! The staff is excellent and so courteous! They even have pet friendly rooms on the first floor! You have to love a place that appreciates the relationship of an owner and his/her dog! I encourage anyone who enjoys the simple life to try this motel on for size! (Just leave a room vacant for us!)

We have stayed at the lodge three times in the last three years and we have througly enjoyed the scenery and the employees of the lodge are truly wonderful and you have been blessed with good employees esp.Chris Ward.We love to sit on our porch and watch the ducks and feel the breeze for the creek and look at the beautiful colors as they change from day to day.We can walk to eat and the shops are close and it just feels like home..Keep up the good work.Betty and Bobby Bishop

My husband and I have stayed at this hotel 2 times a year for 12 years. We have watched the quality decline over the years. This year the room was dirty, smelled bad and the balcony was full of spiders. The funny thing is we never make a reservation and yet they always put us in the same room. We have noticed in our non-smoking room there is a cigarette burn on the blanket that is under the bedspread. That same blanket with the burn in the same spot is always there. So, after they do laundry do they take the blankets back to the same rooms or do they just never wash the blankets? The reason we have put up with the decline in cleanliness is the awsome balcony view of the river. Last year we noticed after dark ALOT of spiders come out around the balcony. I realize that spiders are a givin when you are on the river but a bug service would at least get a handle on the problem. This year we brought our own bug spray and used it apon arival at 3 pm. There was not a spider in sight and them suddenly 28 of them at once. We decided that we couldn't stay because the doors don't seal very well due to age and there is nothing keeping the spiders from coming in. The staff said that we would have to pay a $25 cancellation fee. We never made a reservation and walked into a very empty hotel on a Thursday. I feel very sad to know that we will never stay in this beautiful location again. It 's to bad the view of the river can no longer make up for the rest of the establishment.
