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...

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 Room was a bit outdated, but felt clean, and safe.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...

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...

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...

Got checked into our double queen bed room and found a spacious room that did not have any chest of drawers or any where to put socks, under clothes. Could feel the bed springs in the bed. Stayed there 4 nights and they did not change the sheets. Did not even straighten the sheets. The bathroom smelled really bad the...

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...

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...
