Not so much a charming retro motor court, as some have suggested, but a place that's grown pretty long in the tooth. The price may be reasonable, the river out back is beautiful, and the place is clean - but I'd rather pay $10 or $20 more for newer beds and furniture that doesn't look like it came from a... More

This was a homey place--reminiscent of the motor lodges I stayed in while on family road trips in the 70's. The location is lovely, right next to the river and an easy drive to both Bryson City and Cherokee. The pool was a great addition to cool down after a hot summer's day tripping through the area. The family room... More

OK first let's put to bed what this motel isn't. It's not an Embassy Suites. It's not even a Days Inn. It is in fact a mom-and-pop, by the side of the road, 1950's motel. Except, you get a flat screen TV, a microwave & fridge, & AC (which you certainly didnt get in the 50's). You also get a... More

We really enjoyed our stay in Bryson City. The rooms were small (for five of us!) but comfortable enough for a couple of nights. It was clean, cool and a friendly place to stay. The pool was lovely and the kids loved having the outdoor open fire to toast their marshmallows on! It was a good stopping point and enabled... More

This was a trip back in time for me. It reminds me of the motels my family stayed in back in the 1950s.A couple, Kathy and Blain have done an excellent job in updating and caring for it. They purchased it seven years ago.You have a choice of staying in rooms near the pool ($65) or on the river($75) The... More

I took my wife on vacation to Two Rivers Lodge from 8/10/14-8/12/14. This is an awesome place to stay. Great privately owned hotel. The owners are very friendly and he even came out and introduced himself and I explained that I had came with a group four years ago and he remembered us. This place is very reasonably priced and...

This was my second stay at Two Rivers Lodge. It is even improved from last time. The river bank area is greatly improved by a covered fire pit area with picnic tables, gliders, and a charcoal grill. And just like last time they have a campfire going each night for enjoying. Same as before the room was clean and everything... More

Great motel to visit. The owners are always welcoming and can recommend great rides near and far. The rooms near river are quite and cozy. We have stayed here a few times and it is always a great pleasure. Will visit again.

I've been to the Two Rivers Lodge twice before with my motorcycle clubs and am looking forward to going again in a few months. This is NOT a 5-star resort, so if that's what you want/expect find a more expensive hotel. It is, however, one of the friendliest and most relaxing places that I've stayed. The rooms are not super... More

The beautiful setting surrounding the Two Rivers Lodge, where the Oconaluftee and Tuskaseegee Rivers join, coupled with clean, comfortable, homey accommodations and genuine "At Home" hospitality provided by the lovely couple, Kathy and Blaine Shobe, is best described "like a pearl." If this memorable experience and remarkable location were an oyster than the Shobe's Two Rivers Lodge is the oyster's... More
