Positive Reviews

A good base

Econo Lodge Cherokee is close enough to pretty much everywhere you will want to go. It's near to the Blue Ridge Parkway and Harrahs Casino, as well as being a short drive into Bryson City and the Smoky Mountain Railroad. There are plenty of restaurants and shops a short drive away and some within walking distance.

Good customer service

Staff at this hotel are very friendly, as well as being really professional and courteous. They will greet you warmly and will look after all of your needs during your stay. They can also give you some useful tips on the best places to eat and to visit.

Nice and clean

The property displays a pleasingly high level of cleanliness and tidiness, both in public areas and in guestrooms.

Negative Reviews

An unwelcome scent

While Econo Lodge Cherokee is certainly clean, you might notice a smoky smell in your guestroom, even if it is a non-smoking room. Whether this is because previous guests have flouted the rules or because it is drifting in from other rooms, it may be noticeable. Sometimes this is something of a musty odor to the place as well.

Not the best start to the day

The breakfast here is just about ok, but don't expect too much or you will be disappointed. The area in which it is served is quite tight as well.

Sound annoying sounds

There are a few noises here which might keep you awake. The sound of the cars outside might be audible depending on where your room is positioned and the air conditioning units can be quite loud as well.
