Of course, nothing in the Great Smoky Mountains is close to anything. Little towns like Bryson are for walking. You get in your car when you're going back to your hotel. Lloyd's is near Hwy 74 and Hwy 19. That makes it a great location. It's run by a man and his wife who really care about every guest. They... More

This is a quaint hotel decorated in a country style. Our room had a rear porch with rockers overlooking the river, a really peaceful place to enjoy your morning coffee, unfortunately the air conditioning units were situated close to the seating and could be very noisy. However the views were beautiful. The room had a fridge, microwave and coffee maker.... More

We have stayed here for the last three years and can't believe what a great deal we get every year. We love to paddle the Nantahala River, and Lloyd's is so close with a good view of the mountains and rivers. It is very modest but comfortable, with every amenity you need. The staff is super friendly and even give... More

I arrived Saturday afternoon. It's hard to say something negative about a place you like. I'll get to that in a minute. The room was very clean and smelled fresh. It had been redone since the last time I was there and looked nice. The porch and rockers are wonderful! The pool and grounds were clean and well landscaped. That's... More

We spent a night here en route from Asheville to Nashville. And are we ever glad we did! This little jewel of a motel is every bit as clean and cozy as your own home. We arrived in the pouring rain, but after a few moments in our rocking chairs on the riverside patio we had forgotten all about the... More

This place is pretty old, you can see the wear and tear everywhere, but the price was nice, try to get a room along the river (we didn't), and the rooms have a fridge and microwave. The rocking chairs are great, they have a little pool with plenty of seating. Impressive flowers and landscaping. "Quiet time 11 - 8" is... More

Our room was a 2 BR with a bathroom separating them. The ad stated there was a tub, shower and a tub/shower, but there was only an oversized shower. We needed only one bed, but I imagine if you have kids/grandparents this room would have been fabulous. Each BR had a tv, but only one was connected to cable. The... More
