The room was clean and very reasonable. The beds were comfortable. I would stay here especially on a budget. The room had a microwave and refrigerator. It was fun staying along the river especially with kids along.

We chose this little motel because it was the cheapest one with good reviews, and only needed to stay for one night. I loved this place, and would gladly have stayed longer! It's very clean, homey, and the gazebo/fire pit by the river was marvelous both in the evening and the morning. The small family who runs it is charming... More

Been here a couple of times. Always a great stay. The owners are awesome. Sit around the fire in the evening. Close to Bryson City and Cherokee. Will continue coming back year after year. I prefer the river rooms.

Old motel, outside kept up well. Rooms clean, we paid extra for river view which was just that , a window . Staff ok , location ok, prices too high for property. Lots of better choices 10 miles away in Cherokee. No breakfast other than coffee.

The property and room were clean and the owner/operator was very nice. The view of the river from the room was also very nice. The bed was not very comfortable, but not unbearable either. The shower was very low pressure and the shower head was very low, I'm 5' 2" and had to duck slightly to rince my hair. Overall... More

Expansive grounds along the river. Dated but comfortable rooms, relatively clean. We booked here because they accepted pets, arrived to find "no pets" sign on the counter. Owners reluctantly agreed to make an "exception" for us as long as we agreed to pay an undisclosed $20 pet fee.

The owners of Two Rivers Lodge are true Americans. A family owned business that is built on hard work and a friendly smile. If only more places to stay were similar.

Love coming here to rest! It's always clean and quiet! We really enjoy the pool, and the river is right there for fishing and cooling off too. You're close to the Great Smoky Mountains Park for hiking, as well as Tsali Recreation area too. I recommend it for couples and families!

We were there for 3 nights. Very clean and quiet. The river view was very relaxing. The owners were very nice. I loved the fire pit by the water. If you like quiet and clean this is the place for you. I would recommend this to anyone.
