“Great for the money”
Reviewed 8 April 2012

This Motel is a small "Motor Lodge" style motel. The rooms all have balconies that are right over the trout river which makes a very pleasing sound as the water rushes by. The beds are VERY comfy and for the price I don't think you can get a better value anywhere. There are no real amenities to speak of but the location on the river is worth the price. Definitely go to Peters down the road for breakfast, it's really good. They only serve breakfast but they do it well. Pauls across the street within walking distance is kind of hit or miss to be honest, we've never had an issue with the food but the service can be a bit slow. The indian taco is worth the drive.

Unfortunately with Harrahs growing in this town I fear for the survival of these smaller places. I feel their time may be coming to an end, as is the whole vibe of the Cherokee experience, I'm afraid soon it will be like Gatlinburg and who wants that?

Room Tip: We always try to stay on the ground floor, it's closer to the water.

we had a wonderful time at the rivers edge about 2 yrs ago and we r headed back there in aug of 2012 for our honeymoon along with my uncle and his new bride all honey mooners ridin, they r very biker friendly and the view of sitting on the balcony on the ground level especially, in the rockin chairs was unforgettable,looking forward to staying there again this yr,we would recomend this place to all our friends and family,thank you rivers edge for your great hospitality and clean relaxing atmospheres.

Room Tip: id say the best rooms are the ones at ground level,with balconys just above the crystal clear water...

This is actually one of the cheaper places to stay in town, and is also one of the nicer places I've stayed here.Clean rooms and bathrooms, nice staff, and a WONDERFUL VIEW! We were down the street so we missed the elk walk by across the river, but that did not stop us from sitting on the balcony for hours talking, even in december! When we head back to Cherokee we WILL stay here. We didn't go to the casino, we went for the shopping, which there are shops right across the street, and more within talking distance.

Room Tip: Upper floors are best, as they offer the best view, but all rooms seem to be good.
