Very nice and clean! The owners live on site and are more than accomodating. The rocking chairs on the porch overlooking the river are wonderful and relaxing. The pool is very nice and my kids had a great time swimming in it for hours. This inn is just a short drive from downtown and is nice and quiet.

Lloyd's is a bit rustic but wonderful nevertheless. The man at checkin was super friendly and helpful. He took time to go over the map of the area and describe restaurant choices. The room has a back porch with rocking chairs to enjoy the beautiful river. It's just 7 miles from Cherokee, NC and very convenient to the Great Smoky... More

Nice quaint place on the river. Rooms show a hint of the original 1920's heritage. Clean nice size rooms with a back porch that has rocking chairs which overlook the river. Great value and we will be returning.

This hotel was so cute, clean, and convenient. It is not right in Bryson City, but so close it doesn't matter. It is also way less than the bigger chains in town. Don't book online though, the owner told me that she can always give a better deal if you call, it may just take a couple tries! Our room... More

Great room with great owners on the premises. Creates a bed and breakfast feel due to the attention provided by the owners. Swimming pool was clean and inviting. Rooms are decorated in retro furnishings, very comfortable and nostalgic. We would definitely go back.

We stayed at Lloyd's on July 30 for one night, as a group of us were going to Bryson City to ride the train. Property is older, but rooms were clean and staff were extremely nice. Two days later I discovered I had left my e-reader in my room. Called right away and was so relieved they had found it!... More

We spent 2 nights here and had a wonderful time. Our granddaughters 9 & 12 loved the quaintness of the area. The pool was very clean and the room was very clean. The bed was not as comfortable as I would have liked. The carpet was older and the flooring needed to be leveled. The room size was good and... More

Ask for a room on the river, it's worth the extra $10. Sit on the porch & rock away to the sounds of the river flowing by. Nice motel, quiet, Comfortable rooms, pool, close to Bryson City. Mattress was a bit too firm for me.

As the owner of a cleaning business, I am extremely critical when I stay in a motel. I was pleasantly surprised by my room here. It was cleaner than most large hotel chains. I fell in love with the rocking chairs in the back. Great place to start to have your morning coffee or relax in the evening.

Enjoyed the stay so much we stayed 4 days. Half way between Bryson City & Cherokee. The owners are really lovely people. Felt safe here. Met nice people here. The pool is nice and deep. The rocking chairs on the porch overlooking the river was an awesome touch. The AC works great. A refrigerator & microwave, very handy. Each room... More
