Nice,clean and affordable! This is the second time we have stayed here and the owner is very courteous and friendly. This place is close to everything without feeling like you're stuck in the middle of it all. Highly recommend 🏆

Clean, comfortable and charming by the river! Only stayed one night, but my husband and I love this area so we definitly planning to come back and we have put Lloyd's on our list to stay at. It was quiet, the room was clean, plenty big enough for us as a couple.

We stayed at Lloyds for 2 nights while visiting for the polar express. The location is perfect....closeby Cherokee and Bryson City but not smack in the middle of everything. Larry (the owner) took time upon our arrival to give us maps and point out great restaurants and shopping areas nearby. Such a peaceful area, clean and comfortable rooms. We will... More

We booked a room for 1 night. It was a noon-river view room, and since we stayed in late October, the pool was closed. Room was a bit outdated, but felt clean, and safe. Staff were friendly, and helpful. had a mini fridge and microwave. The price was very affordable, and convenient to the Train Depot, our reason for coming... More

We were in a non-smoking room. We had the porch with rocking chairs outside of our room. We really wanted to sit on the porch, but so many others were out there smoking that we could not tolerate the smell. This was really disappointing. I wish they had a non-smoking area on the porch.

Many tines we don't make reservations, we just go. At the end of our drive one day we found ourselves in this area, and saw Lloyd's. We asked about availability, rates and most important, accessibility for my handicapped husband. The proprietress was very nice, and said she had a room that might work. She quoted a price equivalent to what... More

If you are looking for a clean, friendly, relaxing, hideaway. That is centrally located to many family fun things to do or just hang out there, Fish off your back porch, swing in a mountain river, or swim in a pool located at Lloyds. A must stay if you are in the area.

If there was ever misleading advertising about a hotel, this is it. The establishment leads you to believe that they are a 4-5 star hotel, when in fact it is more a one star. The rooms do not have adequate facilities. The showers were particularly poor with little or no water. No shampoo or other conveniences normal in hotel/motel by... More
