This motel was great for my 24 & 25 year old children who wanted to be close to downtown Cherokee and fishing places. Having a balcony right over the water was awesome. Room was comfortable for 4. Close to shopping, could walk to restaurants, Unto the Hills Show, etc.

My boyfriend and I stayed here one night while on our way to hike in Great Smoky Mountain National Park. We loved being on the river, being able to listen to the sound of water. The bed was comfortable and the room appeared to be updated recently. The room has a private balcony over the river, and it was great to sit outside and enjoy the river. There is a walkway by the river, and we enjoyed walking on it as well. One tip: if you need ice or to use the microwave, recommend you remember to go to the office before 9 PM, which is when the office closes. We will stay longer next time. Very peaceful and beautiful.

Great place to stay! Very clean and great location. We were traveling through the Smokies and camping most of the way. This was a to rest our head. Found it on trip advisor and it was a great find.

Saturday night rate was high, but we weren’t quoted cost with tax. That being said, this is a very clean and nice place to stay. The private balconies overlooking the river are a plus. Staff were all friendly and help. Will stay again when the rates are lower.

Very nice room with ample space and good beds, fridge, TV and private balcony. I found the staff very friendly and helpful. Room was too expensive despite Riverside location. Ample parking and nearby restaurants.

Several friends and I were traveling thru this area, and found this neat place. Rooms were clean and inviting. We stayed for two nights. Pretty area near the Smokey Mountain National Park. Reasonable rates, too!

This is a very clean hotel that has been renovated. We had a large balcony where you can sit and enjoy the rolling river. They're reasonably priced too. We'll definitely be back. It was a great place to celebrate our 29th wedding anniversary.

Stayed 4 nights. Motel was clean and comfortable. Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. All rooms come with a river front balcony which was extremely relaxing! Love this place and I will be back soon!

Very nice room in a great location a few miles from the Oconaluftee Visitor Center. Walked to Oconaluftee Islands Park. Mostly quiet although there was road noise from people visiting the National Park. We really enjoyed our stay.

Great little motel right on the river. Each room has a balcony overlooking the river. They have steps beside the motel office that lead into the river for tubers to get in or out at the motel. Located on the opposite side of town from the casino.
