River's Edge Motel, Cherokee
Excellent place to stay!
The room was clean, updated, and very comfortable. All of the rooms had a balcony overlooking the river. Close to numerous local food places as well as shops and museums. Right across the street from gem mining. I would definitely recommend staying at River's Edge Motel!

Perfect Little Gem.
The staff were friendly and accommodating. The balcony is just a few feet from the river with its relaxing sounds. The room was clean and comfortable. We plan to stay here again.

Perfection with solitude and tranquility
Amazing. I always try to book here first when visiting Cherokee and the casino. All rooms have balconies over the river and it's ideal.

Like camping but with the benefits of a motel room
The view of the river from the private balcony was great.

Hangs over the river - beautiful!
What a lovely place to stay! The entire motel is only the depth of of a room, with the balconies (at least on the 2nd floor) literally hanging over the river -- delightful! the balcony is large and the balcony door includes a screen door, so you can sleep with the sound of the river burbling by... ahhh... (that's unless you're obsessed with security, since there's no lock on the screen door -- but it would be really hard for someone to get to that balcony!). Staff is friendly and responsive; location is a little off the beaten path so not in the middle of all the tourist traps. I definitely hope to stay there again!
