We love stopping in here for the food and tshirts/souvenirs when we ride the dragon. Plenty of parkinf, motorcycle friendly and you meet tons of other riders. There's a loading and unloading dock to help out, and usually a helping hand near if needed. Great place to take pictures and the location of the "tree of shame". They have restrooms...

If you have come to this part of TN / NC, you have come to ride the Tail of the Dragon. Deal's Gap is the epicenter for that experience. With several hotel rooms, a restaurant, fuel pumps and gift shop, you can pretty much get it all. This is a required stop when riding in the area. Make sure you...

This is a must do. If you are a. Motorcycle enthusiast then this is the place to go. The food is good to almost great. Service is fast and friendly...they really have it down pat. Make sure and see the Tree of Shame and pick up a sticker, T-shirt or two.

On your visit to ride the Tail of The Dragon, this place has to be on your list. We stopped here for breakfast and a souvenir stop. The food was good, although not great. Service was speedy, and they handled our large group easily. The gift shop has all the touristy stuff you'd expect... and it's a great place to...

First of all you will need the gas, get it here . Be sure to go in and see near the grill area all the club shirts and well wishes that adorn the walls and ceiling. Also though be sure to see the memorials of those who have lost their lives on the Dragons Tail, its no joke. We got...

Basic accommodations when visiting The Tail of the Dragon. Immaculately clean but extremely basic. My room featured a Queen bed and a set of bunks. It had metal industrial shelves and hooks for riding gear. There was a basic tube TV with satellite programming, a refrigerator, coffee maker (with coffee) and microwave. No chairs, no table, no place to put...

We stayed for 3 nights. Definitely geared for motorcycle enthusiasts. Clean rooms no frills just what you need. There's gas and a small store plus a restaurant. The restaurant closes a little early at 6pm. The store at 7pm. Right on the Dragon out of the driveway. Will definitely stay here again

This is strictly a motorcycle hang out. These boys ride up and down the tail of the dragon all day. Only one place to eat and it is ran like a camp with bunk beds and a bath house. It is by no means kid friendly.

Clean and tidy. The pictures say it all. The grub is good, nothing special just good. The comfort food: all American. Enough said. If you show up in a car you won't be run off but mostly ignored; the make of the car doesn't matter. You are welcome to use the clean bathrooms and shop and eat. I suppose they...

Thanks for the review. I have no idea what people drive and we don't discriminate against cars...unless maybe you're driving a Ford Pinto, nobody likes those guys. We host car groups here all the time so no issues there. Several car groups even rent out the entire hotel for their events. Only issue with cars usually involves finding places to...

Always wanted to stay here and finally decided to give it a try. All the staff that we came in contact with was super nice. Hats off the cleaning crew. Rooms were extremely clean everything that is needed when your out riding. We met some really nice people that were staying there as well from all over. Canada, Connecticut, Texas,...
