Wife, myself, son, daughter-in-law and granddaughter rented 2 rooms on the 2nd level overlooking the river and it was nice and relaxing. Rooms were clean, quiet and beds were really comfortable. Would definitely stay again.

Delightful staff, great location (great walking distance to important places), and sweet alarm clocks! I could sit on the deck for hours enjoying the Oconoluftee River and her lovely foul. If you are lucky, you will have the elk or deer come down the river as well!

Dont try and change your plans if you can't get there in time, they'll never refund your money. She had a bad attitude when I tried to cancel our stay because we couldn't make our reservation and billed us regardless of not staying a night. The office closes early, so we couldn't get in touch with anyone when we attempted...

We always stay at the Drama when we visit Cherokee. The location on the river is relaxing and beautiful. The Inn has rockers on the back decks to just sit back and enjoy the river views. The rooms are slowly being updated which is a positive move.

I planned a last minute trip to Cherokee and had some friends that told me Drama Inn was the place to stay. The staff at the front desk was very friendly. The rooms are in need of updating, but it was clean and the Inn is located near everything. I would stay there again.

Visited over the weekend. The staff is very friendly. However, our room was not all that clean. There were clothes left in the drawer from people before us (see pics). I go into the bathroom and there is a dirty face cloth (in pic on bathroom floor) that was left hanging over the shower. The pillows are extremely thin. The...
