I found Lloyds to be a quaint, cozy and relaxing motel. My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary. We chose this area because of it's location to WCU where we met. Lloyds took us back to those years of fond memories. We had the corner room on the first level. Our room was clean and spacious. Nice sized toilet... More

This was the kind of peaceful place where you’d just like to stay for a while longer. The owners are very friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean, there is a nice pool and the picnic tables in the back are a nice place to enjoy the river. Despite all the positives, there was one negative that would probably keep me... More

This is one of those old road side motels that has been refurbished to bring it to more modern standards. The room I had was tiny, the bathroom even smaller. I may have gotten the smallest room they had. It was adequate, but just barely. The room, bathroom and linens were all clean. The wifi, AC and fridge worked well.... More

A bed and breakfast type of inn nestled in the mountains of Bryson City, North Carolina. Pristine grounds, river view from the deck (you can almost cast your fishing rod from the over-sized rocking chairs), big screen television, comfy beds you sink into, thermostat-controlled heating and air, hospital-clean bathroom and sleeping quarters, homey decorations in each room, everything you need...

This is a quaint and clean Inn. It is not brand new and high tech but it has character. The river that runs behind it is so calm and relaxing. There are many different birds to watch. The people that run the place are great!

Needed a room for the night with my family of 7. We booked two rooms and it was just what we needed after a day on the road. The river runs directly behind the hotel and is very relaxing. You will find many of the rooms have a deck behind them with rocking chairs to just sit and enjoy the... More

Absolutely Superb. Every aspect of the stay met our expectations. The owner checked us in, answered our questions, and made recommendations WRT a place to eat. The room was clean and comfortable; and, located on the river side. The grandcjildren really enjoyed sitting on the porch and watching the geese on the river. They also enjoyed the pool. Friendly, comfortable,... More

Lloyds reminds me of my youth and the popularity of the roadside inn on family vacations. This was our third time to stay at Lloyds and is our go-to place for lodging while in the Bryson City area. The rooms are very clean, the beds sleep well, and evenings and mornings on the rocking chairs overlooking the river are so... More

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
