Lloyds on the River Country Inn
Ranked #4 of 10 Hotels in Bryson City
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 29, 2014

My friend and I came to Bryson City by motorcycle from Jacksonville, FL. I picked this place on reviews AND price. It is in an excellent location for ALL the great motorcycle rides; like the Blue Ridge Pkwy, The Dragon and Moonshiner's Hwy.
This Inn was built in the 1920's, so it has an interesting but fun demeanor. It is in a nice quiet area about 5 miles from downtown.
The beds had quilts and matching shams and were VERY comfortable. We had a table, two chairs, small fridge, microwave and coffee maker. There are grills outside and rockers on the back porch with a great view of the river. The window unit kept us warm and cool as needed, along with ceiling fans. It is too bad the old fireplaces are boarded up, adding an electric one in the rooms would be nice.
The owners are an amiable couple, Larry was on duty and he is full of info about eateries, shopping and events. He also gave me a better deal than the online booking agencies, so worth calling them yourself. Anything you want, just ask. We got old towels from the laundry to dry the bike with, also for use while mining. He gave us directions to town and lots of suggestions for restaurants.
There was NO closet in our room, lots of dresser space, though. The shower was touchy, the hot water seemed to get hotter without warning. The Wi-Fi was sporadic, but they have loads of routers so if one doesn't work, well just try another!!
I enjoyed sitting on the back porch watching the birds and pets across the river after a day of riding.
Quirky charm, but I would stay there again...we had a lot of fun. I like this kind of place, the sterility and poor service at the big chain hotels is such a turn-off for me now.

Room Tip: Try and get a room with a view of the river. The porch was awesome, very relaxing!

I found this place through word of mouth. It is a great little place to stay. No frills but that's how we like it. The back porch, rocking chairs, the river and the geese. Harrahs had a great seafood buffet. We will be back.

Recently my wife of 41yrs. and I took alittle time off from the everyday life in the big city and cme to this quiet little motel ooutside Bryson City,NC. I found this place on the web and it was as good if not better than descibed. The gentleman at the front desk gave us some places to dine and they were great. This place is quiet, peaceful. The back deck with the rocking chairs and the river view is most pleasing. when your in this area. spend a few days that Lloyds on the River.

We spent Easter weekend at Lloyd's. Our adult son went with us, our main intention was to fish. OK-we aren't the best fishermen (son did get a good size trout), but this place was super. As others have posted-rocking chairs on (shared) deck are so neat to just sit and enjoy the stream. Also as others have said, it's old but clean. If you want the Ritz-go to the Ritz and pay their prices and enjoy everything they have to offer. If you want a cozy, relaxing no frills place, this is that place you'll want to check out.

Room Tip: We cooked our own meals, so the corner room with full kitchen, lower floor worked well for us. The...

We spent 3 nights here to celebrate our 30th anniversary. We will go back for any excuse we can find! Sit down in a rocking chair on the back deck, look at the river and listen to the nature sounds, feel the stress drain away! Very basic, very simple, very clean, and very comfortable!
Great value.

If you are looking for a nice affordable location you should pick Lloyds on the River Country Inn. Our room was comfortable, clean with reminders from the past. A deck just feet from the mountain stream, grills and picnic tables. Gracious, friendly owners/managers willing to listen and help if asked. Location is half way between Cherokee and Bryson City. No restaurant or hair dryers or phones in the room. We will stay there again, soon I hope. Lee

Room Tip: two floors, I'd choose downstairs with children and for convenience.
