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

This is an historic motel near the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The place is old, but clean. The rooms have good air conditioning, refrigerators, and microwaves.The bed was comfortable. For the price and location, it was a good place to stay.

This is an average hotel that was 4 miles from downtown conveniently located on Us highway 19. We stayed one night here to be close to downtown Bryson City. We were a large group that required three beds in one room and this had that option. Configuration was one queen bed room and the other had a twin and a... More

If you "need " the 4 star comforts, you won't find them here. However, if what you're looking for is a comfortable room centrally located between Cherokee and Bryson City, this is it. We were greeted as if we had stayed numerous times before meaning as if we were old friends returning. Our room had a back porch that looked... More

Such a nice place. Rooms and pool area were very clean. Rocking chair porches and location right on the river were great--perfect for family vacation. We were in the area for rafting and were able to easily get there as well as to Bryson City (definitely eat at Everett Street Diner!) and Cherokee.

Our rooms were clean, everyone was friendly, and all accommodations were what I expected for a local place to stay. The river and Canadian geese added to the relaxing country charm of Lloyd's. We went into Bryson City, Cherokee, and Maggy Valley during the four days we stayed. I would stay here again!

We enjoyed our stay at Lloyds. The room & bathroom were always clean. We really enjoyed the view from the back of the motel. You step out of your room on to a porch with rocking chairs. We grilled almost every day and ate at the picnic tables provided and watched the river go by.

Owner, Larry was very helpful and pleasant. Rate was competitive for the area and the location was well worth it! Room was adequate and clean. Beds were comfortable. Refrigerator and coffee maker in the room was a plus. Best part was sitting in the comfy rocker on the porch listening to the river and smelling the campfires close by. We... More
