Nothing fancy, but they more than make up for it with cleanliness and hospitality. The location is convenient and the motel itself is right next to the water. Quiet, peaceful. The kids tubed in the water right outside the room. The staff who run the motel are so friendly. You feel like you are being treated like a guest in...

Very clean, well-furnished, good bathrooms. Can't beat the beautiful river running outside your door! My son had a great time with the river. Close to town and to the park entrance. Don't be deterred by the looks of the place when you pull in.

I got married in September and I found this place for my husband and I and our family and friends.. When we first pulled in, we were a little concerned but first impressions don't do this place justice. As soon as you turn the corner towards your room the amount of charm is nearly breathtaking! There is a beautiful river...

First impression does not do this hotel justice. I will be honest on arrival, with half the motel sign out I was concerned about upkeep. But the room was lovely and clean. No phone. But who wants a phone when you have a beautiful rolling river right off the balcony?!? Had a wonderful stay. Would definitely return!

Although the hotel is right on the main road, the noise is at a minimum on that side of town at night. The beds sleep great and are furnished nicely. Everything in our room worked well and the balcony over looking the river is great. (Although you are facing a campsite across the river) We actually left the balcony door...

Surprise! That's how I felt when I got to my room and looked right out on the trout stream running through Cherokee. The room had a comfortable king size bed and was clean and neat. The really cool thing was a high table with two stool chairs sitting right in front of big window over looking the stream. I was...
