This place is a gem. Located 5 miles from Cherokee and 5 miles from bryson city. Clean rooms, hot water, low price. A river runs behind it. Found on trip advisor and glad we did. Owners are great and very helpful. Would return.

I was going to be in Ela to attend a funeral. I called to reserve my favorite room. Upon arrival, my room was ready, complete with a new heat/air system. The room was clean, had a homelike feel and was very comfortable. I especially enjoy the fridge, microwave and coffee maker. Even though it was raining, the porch and view...

This is my second stay at this hotel. It is right on the river so there is a little bit of scenery to enjoy. They also have a fire pit and grills for guests to use. There's not a lot of accommodations as a newer hotel but it's really close to downtown Bryson City and the casinos.

Lloyd's on the River is a conveniently located, quaint little inn. It is a mom and pop little place so there is no amenity's like breakfast, shampoo/conditioner, hair dryer etc. There is a mini fridge and microwave, and very roomy rooms. I would recommend this for anyone in the area. I bet the summer would be real nice with a...

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...

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 Room was a bit outdated, but felt clean, and safe.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