The employees were extremely helpful with the knowledge of what historic sites to see where they were and also knowledge of the great shop's to go too. I cannot wait till my next trip...

Love this place.It is right on the river. The staff was excellent. The room was clean. Close to places to eat, to shop and gem mine. We was able to feed the ducks right from our balcony. I would definitely stay again and I recommend it to all my friends.

Very easy to book and good value for money. Rooms were very clean and quiet overlooking the river at the rear. Unfortunately we arrived late and had to travel to the Econo Lodge to pick up ours keys.

My husband and I have stayed here a few times and are already booked for October for my birthday. I can't wait, this particular hotel is a main reason! It's tranquil sitting on the balcony.

Nice clean updated room right on the Oconaluftee River in Cherokee, NC. You can feed the duck right of your private balcony. Room rates very reasonable. Felt very safe. Within walking distance to shops and restaurants . Minutes away from the Great Smokey Mountain National Park entrance.When we go back for vacation we will definitely stay here!

We stopped by chance in passing a couple of years ago and remembered our first floor room so well. This time our room was on second floor. We prefer first floor. More of a feel of being "on the river." However, I would take any room available just to stay there next time in the area. They were kind enough...

Adorable and helpful desk clerk. Clean rooms, recently decorated. Lovely views of the river. Very friendly and honest (friend left necklace and they kept it for her) I'm a smoker and no smoking on the balcony was a nuisance but hey ho - all considered it was wonderful. I will return! Thank you
