We enjoyed our stay at River's Edge Motel in Cherokee. It is literally on the river's edge and every room has a private balcony on the river. There's a campground directly across the river so it's not completely private but it's nice to sit and watch the ducks while sipping the morning coffee. The room is pretty standard sized and...

It's unusual to learn of a modestly priced place that attracts such uniformly high praise. We were not disappointed. It's as clean, comfortable and friendly as promised. Certainly the fact that every room has a private balcony immediately overlooking a wide fast-running burbling river is the greatest come-on. Unique and totally worthwhile. It has, nearby, good food and other interesting...

My boyfriend and I were traveling through Cherokee during the summer tourist season and this was one of the only reasonably priced places to stay at for the night. We were not expecting much but we were pleasantly surprised when we went to our room. The rooms were clean, decorated nice, and had a nice big bed. Each room has...

Booked this Motel for a spur of the moment Saturday trip to Cherokee. The room rate was very reasonable, and the staff was extremely helpful. We found the room very clean, freshly painted and comfortable. The view off of the room balcony of the river was amazing; the river comes right to the edge of the building. It was extremely...

Stayed here on my visit to cherokee. The motel was quiet with a great view. The motel called me to find out my arrival time. The temperature of the room was hard to maintain other than that great place.

Very clean and comfortable. Thankfully we got there before the office closed at 8pm otherwise we would have had to go to another hotel to retrieve our key. The view over the river is so fantastic! Hubbie wants to go back so we can fish right off the balcony. The town didn't have much to offer because it was off...

We were greeted by Jackie, very sweet, helpful young lady. Loved the room, very clean, wished they had queen beds, but the full size ones were comfy anyways. It was a one day quick trip and loved the balcony sitting area overlooking the river. I can sit there for hours. Will definitely be back this year during the spring or...

Our family visits Cherokee multiple times in a year and this is our go-to hotel. It is so peaceful sitting right next to the Ocanaluftee River. The rooms are comfortable and the beds are great. Short walk to many shops and restaurants too. Never had even the slightest bad experience here!

Our stay in mid December was quiet, relaxing and one that we look forward to repeating this December. Best vacation ever. The front desk clerk was friendly and welcoming. Room was clean and inviting and it was so beautiful to sit on the balcony and listen to the Oconoluftee River outside in the evening and morning. We also stood on...
