Pros: For the price and location this is a perfect place! Will definitely return.
Cons: The only issue we had was the shower was a walk-in only and it didn't drain well. By the time two showers were complete you were standing in water.
2.5 Mediocre
Pros: Nothing
Cons: One bed was like a hammock the other one was Like a rock. The cleaning lady didn't clean well, just made the beds and replaced towels. Never vacuumed and the sink and shower were dirty. Never emptied or cleaned the coffee pot just dropped off two cups and supplies. The best news is that I never have to go there again!
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Loved the rocking chairs overlooking the river!
9.1 Excellent
Pros: When you arrive to Lloyds, you see a lodge/motel, as is the norm for majority of the Cherokee area. We were greeted by the front desk manager and enjoyed a pleasant conversation. He recommended many restaurants, along with sharing a map to assist with all their locations. Once we entered our room, it was not as expected, every room is different. Done have hard wood floors, some have paneling, etc. You walk through your room and out the back door onto a joined rear deck with plenty of rocking chairs overlooking the river. The serenity was great, the view was amazing, and the atmosphere won us over. We will return here for all of our future visits to the Cherokee area.
Cons: The paneling continued into the doors making then harder to close.
9.1 Excellent
Pros: We were allowed to change our reserved rooms to ones on the river w/ porches and rockers upon arrival. Very nice to sit out at night. My friends and I had side by side rooms. Rooms were decent.
Cons: Some units have very small bathrooms, including mine, but for me, it wasn't a problem at all. Motel is located a few miles out of Bryson, although it seems to be just as close to Cherokee. Not a long drive or anything. No complaints here.
6.2 Good
Pros: Creekside location. Room was clean. Checkin was pleasant.
Cons: Hotel room floor was uneven. Unlike other motels/hotels, there was no complimentary breakfast offered.

6.0 Good
Pros: Clean, pleasant owners, a roof over my head after fishing all day. Nothing more asked of it ....
