Fantastic place to stay with balcony directly over the river. Lovely room, very clean, comfortable beds and nice pillows. Handy to restaurants and local shops. Pleasant and helpful staff. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to others.

Room Tip: All rooms have river views but nice balconies upstairs

Im rating this as a 1 because they gave our room away while we were on our way there!! I made the reservation several days before our arrival date. i gave them my card number (they didnt charge it) i guess it was to hold the room. So we got stuck in a 4hr traffic jam on the interstate. when we got there i went in told her my name said we have reservations and that we had gotten stuck in traffic. check in time was 3 we got there around 9:30. she said i dont have you down i said what, i said i made reservations she says are you sure it was with us im like um yes i gave my card number. she said we dont take payments over the phone i said well someone took my card number. so she immediately gets on her cell and i dont know what shes doing im thinking she is trying to find who had took my reservation but, she was actually trying to find us another place to stay. she said i do this all the time. im like good grief. so basically it was just me saying yes my reservation was here and her saying well i dont have you down. i said was there anything else i was supposed to do after i made the reservation. she said someone should have called you, did they. i said no but they took my card number. anyway we go next door to the NEWFOUND LODGE and got a room for our stay. we got back home and had a message from the rivers edge saying they were confirming our stay. i told my husband i knew i made the reservation with them. so im assuming they had someone come in and needing a room called to confirm with us and WE WERE ON OUR WAY THERE!! so we couldnt answer so they gave our room away. i called to complain and she said oh im sorry about that bla bla bla i said you sound like the same one that i tried to tell we had a reservation with she said no i dont work at night YEAH RIGHT it was the same one at the desk that called while we were on our way. im pretty sure it was sounded the same all three voices. any how she said i hope you will consider calling us again. im thinking how could i consider calling you again when i cant depend on my room being there when we get there. that really is kinda sorry to do people that way. but anyhow we had a great time and THANKS RIVERS EDGE MOTEL FOR GIVING OUR ROOM AWAY CAUSE THE NEW FOUND LODGE RIGHT NEXT DOOR SAVED US AROUND 130.00 RIVERS EDGE IS WAY OVER PRICED FOR WHAT THEY OFFER. if you book with them BEWARE they could give your room away. so i suggest MAKING YOUR RESERVATION WITH THE NEWFOUND LODGE.

I choose this motel because it was on the river and had a balcony to relax and enjoy the water. Room was very clean. Didn't realize that this was off the main casino area. If you are going to casino and main street in Cherokee, you will have to drive. Parking probably an issue during peak season. Parked diagonally in front of room and vehicle rear was about 1 foot from the road. Had to watch traffic while getting luggage out. This is an older hotel but was very clean.

Room Tip: Rooms on the 2nd floor would be better. There is a camping park on the other side of the river, directly across from the hotel. .

Unless you're gambling, the main reason to be in Cherokee is the native Indian culture, and this motel is ideally situated.
As a bonus it sits on the river, and has balconies. And is walking distance to the tourism, and importantly a breakfast mom and pop shop.
We had a misunderstanding on our booking - probably our fault, but they were able to offer us a solution, so that helped too.

If we were to stay in Cherokee again I can't think of any reason why we wouldn't make a booking here. the 3 star rating reflects the amenities, not the service, nor quality

Stayed for the night while attending the motorcycle rally in Cherokee. After reading the reviews decided to give it a try. Was very happy the room was very comfortable and clean. All rooms have balconies overlooking the river. Room had tv fridge hair dryer but no microwave but overall very nice would definitely recommend
