Great location to everything in Cherokee but be warned the hotel is on 20 OLD River Road, Cherokee. The GPS and Google Maps will send you to Dillsboro with 20 River Road, Cherokee!

Pros: Close to everything.
Location: There is a park museum and shops near by. And a movie theater, too.
The motel was close to everything. The room was clean and comfortable. The tv needs some adjustment as it was almost too dark to see. it was nice and quiet.

Pros: The outside decor
Location: Location was Great.
When we drove up the Econolodge seemed well taken care from the outside. When we went to our room, it smelled like a strong mildew or musty smell. We also found a dirty wash rag hanging on the shower curtain rod over the curtain. We really didn't spend much time in the room. When we got back from the Casino to sleep, we found the mattress to be very old with lots of lumps and dips. The pillows were also very old and well worn. I slept ok, however my husband said he had a horrible night. We probably wouldn't stay there again. Its not horrible, its you get what you pay for.

Convenient Location

Pros: Close to Casino and decent rates.
Cons: Improve the lighting in the rooms and hotel lobby. Always seemed dark.
Location: Good location, right in center of town. There is shopping, fishing, walking areas and the Casino.
Stayed for two nights. Was OK for the price. Basic amenities. Breakfast is skimpy. Hotel staff not overly friendly. Convenient location to Casino.

Fantastic Stay!

Pros: Everything was great.
Cons: A few more options for breakfast.
Location: We walked downtown. Then drove over to the casino. This hotel was the perfect location for both.
We had never been to Cherokee before. We were traveling back from a Family gathering. We decided to look for a hotel room last min. on a holiday weekend. I was nervous as I had never stayed in an econolodge before. The staff was friendly. Room was clean and nice. All was quiet. Thanks for a wonderful experience we will be back!
