As mentioned by others, the motel is nicely situated directly by the river and offers cozy balconies to relax. our room was clean, the reception friendly. however, it was a mixed bag due to several issues: parking is a bit cumbersome, because you have to go backwards onto the street when leaving. the wifi signal was weak and only available...

The rooms have balconies over the river, a spectacular and serene feature. I could have sat and watched the river run all day. Very nice staff, new bedding, clean, quiet, and an amazing location. I will be back!

My husband and I went for a short weekend trip and made reservations at the last minute. For the price, we were not expecting much but were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The ladies at the desk were very friendly and seemed genuinely happy to have us there. The room was very clean with beautiful views of the river off...

We enjoyed our stay at River's Edge Motel in Cherokee. It is literally on the river's edge and every room has a private balcony on the river. There's a campground directly across the river so it's not completely private but it's nice to sit and watch the ducks while sipping the morning coffee. The room is pretty standard sized and...

It's unusual to learn of a modestly priced place that attracts such uniformly high praise. We were not disappointed. It's as clean, comfortable and friendly as promised. Certainly the fact that every room has a private balcony immediately overlooking a wide fast-running burbling river is the greatest come-on. Unique and totally worthwhile. It has, nearby, good food and other interesting...

My boyfriend and I were traveling through Cherokee during the summer tourist season and this was one of the only reasonably priced places to stay at for the night. We were not expecting much but we were pleasantly surprised when we went to our room. The rooms were clean, decorated nice, and had a nice big bed. Each room has...

Booked this Motel for a spur of the moment Saturday trip to Cherokee. The room rate was very reasonable, and the staff was extremely helpful. We found the room very clean, freshly painted and comfortable. The view off of the room balcony of the river was amazing; the river comes right to the edge of the building. It was extremely...
