Recent guest reviews

Clean budget hotel with nice location. Breakfast was VERY basic but they do have rocking chairs outside all the rooms so that was a nice touch.

Everything was nice and my family felt safe. The hotel was conveniently located down the street from the casino and shops.

When we first pulled in we almost couldn't find it because all of the lights were out except for two in the parking lot. I did not like this and I mentioned it to them when I walked inside. The pool was also closed for renovation. Otherwise the staff was very nice and the rooms were clean. There was a very bad storm going on and the Wi-Fi was not working. I tried it the next morning and it works fine. Not sure what that was about but overall I would recommend this to a friend.

Hotel was reasonable, clean and quiet. Would stay here again.

Very convenient to casino location. Very clean, friendly, comfortable and an excellent value. Would highly recommend.

great room for great price. Perfect location if you heading to Cherokee!

Great price and location. will stay again. Room was clean and break was good for the price. Room was clean and staff were welcoming.

The room was quite clean, bathroom renovated but the main door had little problem with closing. The manager asked us to move the room if we wanted but as we had all our luggages already unpacked we decided to say in the room. One of the bath towel was torn at the edges and there was some hair at the tub and the hand towel. This is the first time to sleep in econolodge so not sure if I expected too much. The day I slept was quite a cool day so although we turned on the heater alot the heat didn't go to the bathroom. In winter time maybe people will feel cold during the shower...

Good location. Room was small, but about what I expected. Room was clean. Would stay here again.

Great 2nd time for an overnight stay! Everything great!

Friendly staff! Very clean! Will definitely stay here again

We arrived at the hotel and was greeted by the front desk clerk. We felt welcomed! My wife and I loved staying here because of the proximity to the casino which was only a mile away! Overall it was a great stay and reasonably priced. I would recommend this to anyone who is considering going to the casino when they have no availability of rooms.

I would stay here again. Plus they will match competitor prices.

At first it was a little difficult finding the motel, so I called and the guy told me just how to get there. I was only a short distance. Roger, the clerk was very nice. He even gave us extra soap when we asked. The motel is back off the road, but is at the light where the KFC is. Stay was great. Couldn't have asked for better. Enjoyed the casino.

This was a good place to stay for our overnight trip to Cherokee.

Rooms were very nice. Staff was great. Located near everything.

very nice room very clean. close to everything at Cherokee. great price. econo lodge staff was very good.

I have been to Cherokee a lot have always seen this motel but never stayed until this time. I was surprised because I thought would be run down but just the opposite new looking carpet and was clean. I would stay here again.

For the price is worth it, clean and friendly. However it is 1.5 miles uphill from casino not .4 miles as advertised. Walkong distance to nearby shops though.

We stayed one night in Cherokee. We got the worst night sleep due to the noisiest heater we have ever heard.the room was so cold the heater needed to be on all night. I did report it to the desk clerk in the morning and she said they would look into it. We did enjoy the Museum of the Cherokee Indian and had great take out barbrbeque from Country Boy.
