The bed was comfortable, and from our balcony, we could listen to the river and see ducks and geese. However, there was no microwave and the one we could use in the office was so old it took 4 minutes to do what took me 2 minutes at home and even then it wasn't as hot as I would have...

I stayed at the River's Edge Hotel on Friday and Saturday in May 2017. The first thing that I did was to go to the main desk to check in. The young person at the counter could not have been more professional. Then, I went to the car to get the wife. We then went to the room. As I...

I like a simple, affordable, clean motel and the River's Edge was exactly that! A friend and I took a last minute trip down to Cherokee to hike in the park and we found River's Edge and decided to give it a chance. We are SO glad we did and will certainly stay next time we are in the area....

Just great, with all rooms' balconies directly overlooking the Ocunaluftee River below. Within walking distance of restaurants and other venues. Very clean and well maintained. Inexpensive. Rustic. Cheerful staff.

We wanted something unique and we got it! Yes, it's older and they probably would not let them build it so close to the river today. But it was GREAT. The balcony overlooked the river, directly. We watched the geese and the ducks on the river from our balcony. A great river walk after dinner and a good restaurant within...

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...
