It was a great place to stay clean and close to every thing

The cabins are beautiful,sit on stream with backporch overlooking the stream. Ease of access to shopping,the casino and eateries.

When I arrived at the motel the desk person didn't want to check me in. He said I'm not listed on reserve (his attitude wasn't good). I had to go back to my car to sign in to orbitz on my phone to show my reservation on Orbitz. There's no reason on my part for his behavior. He said under his breath 'crazy' when his behavior is questionable. When I walked out of the room to check out later he called me crazy again. I wasn't displaying crazy behavior. This looks like a discrimination case with no reason to discriminate! I'm a white caucasian heterosexual all my life married to a woman for 23 years! I'll give them one more chance next time I come to Cherokee and if anything like this happens again there will be a law suite. I want to be treated with respect when I stay there.

Simple 50’s road motel. Like most they try really hard to make what they can afford work. Room was clean and quiet. The mattresses need replaced. Looks to be American owned. The staff was really nice, even offering to drive to get us food in the pouring rain (we were on a motorcycle). Would stay there again without hesitation.

My first impression of this Motel was not good! I came off the highway up to the left of the office. The drapes were not hanging well, people were sitting outside, and the overall appearance was poor. Apparently this Wing was for their long-term stays. My room turned out to be on the other side of the office. The room was substantially like the pictures online had showed them to be. The beds were comfortable, the bathroom was clean, and amenities were working well. I had a very comfortable stay and would highly recommend this properly for its proximity to everything in Cherokee. The Oconoluftee Indian village, Mountainside theater for the Unto These Hills drama and the casinos are all quite near. It is also a reasonable distance to the whitewater rafting area on the Nantahala River.

I was in town for a bike race in cherokee. It was a cute little town and Qualla Cabins and Motel was right in the heart of everything. The fairgrounds with an open water stream to play in was open to the public, which was less that 5 minutes down the road. The Casino was within 2 miles as well. The beds were very comfortable and the showered stayed warm even for my long showers! Great place to stay and I will return!

We stayed in one of the queen size cabins and absolutely loved it. The staff was super friendly, our cabin was clean and comfortable. It was a great way to spend some downtime. I would highly recommend this for a weekend getaway.

Fantastic room except the shower plumbing needs reaming out, not enough pressure from the shower head. I cleaned out debris from inside the shower head myself to no avail. It help some with the flow but no pressure. Otherwise the room and premises is great!

The room was not fancy but it was comfortable and clean. We picked it because the price was a little cheaper than other motels or hotels in the area.

We drove down to North Carolina to view the total solar eclipse of 2017. At the time of booking, most lodgings near the path of totality were sold out. Qualla Motel was still available and affordable, so we were grateful to have a place to stay within an hour's drive of eclipse activities in Andrews. The rooms were very basic and clean, which is all we really needed. But if you're looking for amenities like having your room cleaned and bed made with clean towels each day, this is not the place for you. (The staff were very nice and brought us clean towels upon request.) The wifi was very weak, so I pretty much stayed off the Internet for the duration of the stay. If you need to get serious work done online, forget it.
