“We were extremely comfortable - felt like home”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2011

We stayed 3 nights, slept great on a comfy bed, nice and quiet at night. It is an older, family operated (American family - complete with children) hotel with spacious rooms, a covered front porch with chairs for relaxing in the cool evening air. A great space by the river with covered picnic tables and grills for cookouts. There was a microwave, coffeemaker, fridge and toaster oven in our room. The host did provide coffee for each morning we were there. We grabbed groceries at the IGA in Bryson City, just a short drive away, so we didn't have to eat out at all. We took day trips on our Harley, came back and splashed around in the pool a bit and then relaxed by the river. It was awsome!!
We actually arrived about noon....before check-in time....but our room was clean and ready so we were allowed to check-in early - which was great since we had been on the road for 5 hrs at that point.
I'm sure we will visit Two Rivers Lodge again - it's a good central location for great motorcycle rides in the beautiful Smoky Mountains, Deals Gap, Moonshiner 28 and other great roads.

The Two Rivers Lodge will become the LEGEND of TWO RIVERS because the owners are family. They treat their guests like family. Super service, answers questions, fixes room things that break. Great all around people and if you are as lucky as our Riding Club and you get to eat some of Blaine's cobbler cooked in iron potts on hot coals you have tried a piece of heaven. My wife and I have vowed to go back and also to tell our friend, family and business assoicates about this wonderful secret in the mountains.

Rooms are plain but comfortable. Each has fridge and microwave, coffee maker.
Rivers out back are beautiful with seating areas to enjoy the view. No WiFi..
Older hotel but worth the price. Would stay there again.

We come to Cherokee every other month and always stay at Two Rivers. It's an older place, but the rooms are cozy and the owners are extremely friendly. They are also pet friendly and unlike most places, they don't have a size limit. We take our 100 pound great dane mix when we come and there is a lot of room for him to run and exercise. My husband loves fishing in the river behind the motel and has caught many fish including 14 inch trout. They are off the reservation and you don't have to buy that extra day permit like you do in Cherokee. The owners have worked hard to make the area near the river guest friendly, with fire pit (with plenty of wood) for roasting marshmallows and hotdogs. There are picnic tables, grills and a swing, plus horseshoes. The pool and wading pool are great for the kids. We have never had a room that is dirty. It is an older place but well tended. My husband is 6'5 and does have to adjust to the shower some, but it's worth the savings compared to other places that cost you 33% more per night.

I Noticed every one's review was a little out of date. Two yrs. ago we stopped by to pick up a brochure. ( A place we had seen on travel & though it would be a nice clean place to stay). We made reservations for the July 4th weekend.. Price's were inflated for the holiday rate. After we ck's in it was not a 79.00 room, under any conditions. The whole place could use a new paint job, inside and out. The blanket's that was folded up in the room, had live bugs in them, (beetles). (I saved them in a kleenex & showed them to the clean-up crew. The tub would not drain, due to a nasty clog of hair. The toaster oven was not cleaned, and needed new tin foil. Their was old hot dog marks still on the tinfoil.spider webs above the curtains, with dead bugs attached. Wall paper coming off, and torn off the wall.. NOT AT ALL WHAT I HAD EXPECTED. This motel is one step above a campsite.... SO GO PREPARED!!!!

Just spent 1 night so that we could catch the train the next morning....no problems with the room. The kids loved the pool. I wasn't expecting more than it is....a little family owned motel in a great location.
