This is a very quaint, older motel. I absolutely loved this place. The owner was the nicest man ever!. It is small, its not luxurious, it has not had any kind of "makeover" or remodel in a while but it was clean. Most importantly, it was warm on a cold December weekend. Our room was small but plenty of room for the two of us. I will definitely make this my place to stay when visiting Bryson City. The price is low and the accomodations are quaint!

Simplicity...loved it!!! Walking distance of the shops & restaurants. Our room had the essentials --- bed and shower. That's all one needs for a couple's getaway ♡ The owner made us feel welcomed (can't find that at just anywhere).

This is an OLD motor court in downtown Bryson City. Great location for all the activites… especially to ride the Polar Express. Near several good restaurants and lots of shops. The motel was acceptable (barely) in that the beds were comfortable and the rooms had a frig, microwave, and tv with Directv service. Bathrooms needed major updating and there was mold and mildew on a lot of the tiles. The manager (AP) was very hospitable and friendly. I am not comfortable in recommending this motel to a friend

We originally had reservations at a different local motel in Bryson City but, upon arrival, found that there was no record of our reservations. We had to scramble to find two rooms at 6 p.m. on a Friday night. AP, the manager at the Rosewood Inn, was very helpful. We were able to arrange two rooms for two nights. We were thankful to have rooms available at the last minute. The rooms were basic, old and outdated but clean. The bed in our room (room 12) was comfortable. There was a mini fridge and microwave. The towels were very thin. If you are looking for something modern and updated, you may not be interested in this location. If you are looking for a good location with a wonderful host but not too picky about the accommodations, you may be satisfied. We were pleased that we could walk everywhere we wanted to go in Bryson City from our location.

My wife and I came to Bryson City with another couple to celebrate a birthday and all 4 of us had a wonderful time staying here. The management staff is off the charts as far as service, friendliness, professionalism, making you feel welcome and at home...thank you AP (general manager)! I will forever stay here when we come up to play at the nearby casinos. It’s a pretty quick drive to the casinos and it’s a short 3-5 minute walk to the charming Bryson City downtown shops and restaurants. The rooms are not fancy but are very charming and super clean! Crisp sheets, clean towels, never saw any bugs inside or out. No weird smells that might be expected from a 1940’s motel. I would have never stayed here if it wasn’t recommended by a friend but I am sure glad I did and I will continue to stay here as long as the ownership/staff doesn’t change, they made our stay so wonderful.

Rosewood Inn is not for everybody. I would have given it only one star except for the fact that the owners are very nice people. That, and the location, is the only positive thing about the motel. It is very old and run down (but clean). Needs a lot of updating that simple painting will not correct. One other review said their knees were under the sink when sitting on the toilet. I thought she was going a little overboard…she was not. Maybe a different room other than our “river room would have been better. Very nice owners but, next time we will stay elsewhere.

When I booked this online, I thought this would be a nostalgic type mountain retreat for a quick visit to Bryson City. It is old..rundown old, tired, and in desperate need of repair to get it even to nostalgic status. It feels more like a 50s motel that hasn’t been structurally maintained since the 50s. We booked prepaid for two nights...forfeited the last night and moved to another hotel. Now Bryson City isn’t exactly a metropolitan area with a multitude of places to choose from to stay and most of your other options are comparable to the Rosewood if you’re staying downtown. It wasn’t for me though and I won’t be staying there again

We have been coming to Bryson City for years and we always stay at the Rosewood Inn. If you are looking for fancy then keep driving. If you want clean, comfortable, family friendly and awesome customer service that makes you feel at home, this is the place. There is nowhere there that we would rather stay. Can't wait until next time.

If you are a 5 star hotel person keep driving. The Rosewood Inn is a throwback to days past. It is clean and comfortable with hot showers and a friendly owner. An easy 3 minute walk to downtown and if this is your style you will love it.

This hotel is Quiet and has a location convenient to shops and restaurants. Staff are friendly. Inn also seemed both safe and clean during our brief stay. However, be prepared for a vintage look that comes with significant plumbing problems. Our bathtub was barely usable due to problems with settling.
