Went to Maggie Valley to see Wheels Thru Time Museum and the wife & one adult son came along. Picked Jonathan Creek because few booking available at time. What a home run! After a recent bad experience using small local inns on a PA get away we found spotless, well maintained facilities with local charm and comfort. and a friendly staff. Last minute travel changes had us stay two nights and not just one. Next season I plan a cycle tour back to Maggie Valley and to run the near by Dragon and I will return.
Really, really liked the whole nature scene. There were plenty of trees, a rushing creek playing my favorite sounds, and a comfortable place to lay my head at night. Also, the folks behind the desk were super kind and helpful. They seemed to enjoy helping my group get orientated with Maggie's Valley.
Beautiful area, clean friendly staff. Best on franchise hotel for the price I can remember staying in. No breakfeast served, however great resturant across the street.
I didn't know what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised. This hotel was very cozy and extremely clean. This is not what I would call a typical 'Econo- lodge'. It was way above my expectations. If you are not staying at the casino. I don't think there is a better place in Cherokee.
I stayed during the street repair time. It was noisy and hard to get around since the street was down to one lane. It was OK for the price. Didn't expect much for breakfast and didn't get much. Coffee and yogurt.
I recomend this hotel...It's close to everything,very ,very quiet and the location is so beautiful,close to the river and a lot o f trees around...Loved the place..
Staff friendly, room very clean, nice bedding and comfortable mattress. convenient
I have been staying here since they tore the Plasa Motel down a few years ago. I tried a couple of others but when I stayed at the Econ Lodge that was it, I have been comming back ever since. Icall the Qualla my home away ffrom home and try to get back as often as I can. My next visit will be July 1 to 8. I will be there for the Pow-Wow, which if any of you are in the area should try to see. I'm sure once you stay here you'll want to come back, especially when the leaves turn in the fall. From here I'm going up north for about 3 or 4 weeks and then back here on my way back to Florida for a week or so. So, why not make your next trip Cherokee and the Econo Lodge I'm sure you'll enjoy the Hotel and it's location.
The location along the river was perfect! Close to everything we wanted to do, but not so close that we were bothered by the sounds of traffic or the crowds! The room was clean and fully stocked, but the beds were a little lumpy. The staff was excellent; helpful, but not intrusive! The breakfast menu was very sparse, but we will definitely stay again!
Excellent room it was clean, bed was comfy, would stay again, staff was very friendly.
The room was clean--tv and ac worked--front desk friendly and nice --room service was very good. Breakfast was small (not much choice. Over-all very nice.
I stayed for one night and it was a great place to stay at. The check in attendant was very nice and check out was absolutely a breeze. I highly recommend it.
stayed one night and was pleased with room for the money spent.easy access and exit.would recommend.
The kitchenette The garbage cans outside our room needed to be emptied.
Staff was very nice. Room very dusty. Sheets were clean but very musty smelling.
The owners were very friendly and welcoming from check-in to check-out. The room was clean, comfortable and mountain setting was very peaceful. Great place to stay if you want a reasonable-priced hotel in a beautiful, serene setting. N/A
We liked the location and the proximity to the local park - the festival we were going to was within walking distance& we did not have to move our car. The staff (owner) was extremely friendly & helpful. Everything was clean. Nice spacious bathroom. THE MATRESSES!!! Both of the beds in the room we were in had mattresses on them that were so soft I dubbed them 'marshmallow beds'. We rolled down into the middle when we got in and it was a challenge to get out. New mattresses wd be a big benefit.
The room was what we wanted, the owners were exceptional nothing
Helpful staff, great price, room was way better than I expected
Nice person at desk. rated number 1 on your sight. I guess i did not read close enough. no power in bathroom, no one at desk when arrived, lots of motor cycles to wake us during the night.
As the host hotel a group from all around north America, this was a good place that could accommodate a crew. Our hosts were great!! Could use new mattresses to go with the well done physical updates to rooms. Mine wasn't so good.
this hotel had a firmular feeling of home. we like the spacious bathroom and we had plenty of room to lay stuff on the sink counter, without fear it would get knocked off. only that it needs a little bit of weather striping around the door,
A very nice, clean and quaint room. the staff was very polite and friendly. The only thing I didn't think to bring was shampoo and wouldn't you know it there wasn't any in the room. Not a big deal at all
The owners were very friendly. Our children loved the playground. The motel needed to be updated. The comforters and pillowcases looked old and faded. The TV remote didn't work, and the TV only pulled in one channel - Nickelodeon. The room was also incredibly humid!
Staff is friendly. Poor sound insulation.
The owner's were very nice and willing to go out of their way to make your stay comfortable and fun. Gave suggestions for things to do in and surrounding Maggie Valley.
I called the night before & reserved room 3B. When we checked in she admitted she failed to make the reservation and someone else was in the room already. We got room 2A, near the street. She was nice enough to come to the room and refund us our money. Ask for rooms B, they are further from the road, but the window shaker masks any road noise so it doesnt matter much.
The rooms are non smoking. Since the rooms are non smoking, there are rocking chairs set up outside of the rooms, which looks inviting, but smokers sit outside of the rooms and smoke. My mom and I would come back to the room and would be stuck in the room with no where to relax and look at the scenery. That kind of sucked. Plus, the cigarette smoke drifted into our room. It would be nice if there was an area away from the room with inviting chairs to sit in to relax and look at the scenery.
The location was good and loved the two trees out front The bed was very hard and room had a strong smell. We asked to be moved to a different room. We had to downsize to do this. Staff was not very friendly.
Renovated bathroom was nice, and room included mini fridge and microwave. Cheapest stay in town. Had cable. A/C worked. Comforters, carpet and tv are all ancient. Front office stays locked and you have to call to get someone to meet you. Extremely thin walls, was woken up at 1am due to tv being loud in room next door, couldn't go back to sleep. Also person staying in room next door decided they needed to go outside and smoke pot at 1am, so our room instantly filled with the smell of pot... Very unhappy with this. Would definitely NOT stay here again.
quiet cobwebs, splits in wallpaper, creaky bed.
It was the only hotel in the area. I had low expectations, and was happily surprised with room. I thought it was a little pricey for a 2 star hotel, but it must be it's proximity to the park.
The rooms were updated and well decorated and very clean. Several things from rude staff to internet access problems to coffee supplies. I did email America's Best corporate in an attempt to address my concerns. They responded saying the hotel had to respond, and no one did. Essentially I was ignored.
ROOM WAS CLEAN AND CONVENIENT FOR US NO FRESH COFFEE OR BREAKFAST SERVED ON TUESDAY. PROBABLY BECAUSE MOST ROOMS WERE EMPTY. WEEKEND WAS FULL.
quiet, comfortable breakfast could have had a little more variety
The cleaning lady on asunday was helpful. This was one of the worst stays I've ever had! 1. We had to beg for towels and pillow cases. 2. They was a balcony, but couldnt use it because of an overwhelming smell of gas, projected directly to our room. 3. The bathtub leaked all night, sink fau
The price was okay and it was clean.
Clean comfortable friendly!! Would choose again
