It is a strip motel. Older but clean and A/C worked. For $45 dollars a night I knew I wasn't getting a Hilton but it was quaint, clean and The Trail of Tears ride left from there. I would definitely stay here again.

It is an older motel, but clean. You actually have a back door to your motel room. You have a huge back green space with more swings and a safe place for the kids to run around. People are friendly. We will always stay here on our trip. Economical, clean, and a pool.

No first class motel but rooms are clean. Have stayed here numbers of times. Price is reasonable. Does have pool and playground area for kids. Has pavilion in back with grills and river behind motel. Has back porch with chairs to relax. Only five miles from Santa land. Walking distance to cherokee casino.

Basic Needs for a motel stay. The staff is friendly and will work with you, close distance to everything. Just do not expect anything but an average room! Love the river in the back-- Feels very peaceful.
