We stayed 2 nights at this hotel during our fall trip to Blue Ridge Parkway and Smoky Mountain. It is located just outside of GSMNP entrance. The room is basic but large and clean, there is no breakfast but the price is low to make up for that. There is Hardy's across the street and there other good local breakfast... More

Cherokee itself is not exactly vibrant and doen't have a lot of good restaurant options, but this place is great if you are planning to hike the Smokies. The hotel is quite basic (motel/lodge style) but clean and well-maintained. Staff is... More

This hotel is on the outskirts of town. I found it to be very quiet. The clerks at the front desk were very attentive and friendly. For the price you pay which was way less than the same quality of hotels you save a bundle. If you are budget minded and want a nice place to stay this is the... More

Excellent facility and beautiful well-equipped room priced at $67 plus tax. This was a pleasant surprise after having paid just over $100 for similar stays in Boone and Asheville on the previous two nights. I arrived after dark and was pleased to find a Hardees restaurant directly across the street.
