Writing this review as a female motorcyclist, who visited this locale, for the first time, with my husband in October 2020. It is ideal for riding the Tail of the Dragon, however, one should know that the accommodations are rudimentary and simple, with cinder block walls, reminding one of a college dorm room. Each room has a queen sized bed & a set of bunk beds, with one bathroom; clean, with cable TV, but zero internet. I arrived with my husband & three others; between us, we had three rooms. There was a fire 🔥 happening in the fire pit. Also, we arrived just as the sun was setting (around 7:00 pm) & went without dinner because nothing was open on the grounds & there was nothing to munch on. You don’t want to return to Robbinsville proper or even the closer Tapoco Lodge in the dark, on those roads, unless you could care less about being alive. Remember this fact, first timers; bring snacks or sandwiches if you arrive late in the day. We went without dinner, & I turned to my husband & advised him that if we weren’t already married, and had just been dating, I would have broken up with him when we got back to civilization. 🤗 Also, this locale is more like campsite grounds vs. a resort because the locale is pretty simplistic & there aren’t any ‘round the clock staff on premises. Breakfast doesn’t open until 8:00ish. But you’re there to ride, not chill & be waited on. Ride safe.…
Rode the tail of the dragon Hwy 129 from Tenn into NC and stopped here for lunch. Got some stickers and a break in the shade and down the road we went. I recommend to everyone to visit. The food was delicious and the prices were great.
We enjoyed our time here. The three boys were excited to get their souvenirs and pictures after the ride. Everyone was nice and the place was clean. Their is plenty of parking for motorcycles and automobiles.
If you are reading this, you already know the Tail of the Dragon at Deal's Gap, the legendary motorcycle road well worth its reputation. This is a convenient place to take in the road & has a good shop for Tail of the Dragon souvenirs.
Well, the rooms are simple, clean. The TV didn't work and the young people at the store said someone else complained about it...duh get Maintenance to fix Grill closed at 4 WTH..when asked the young people at the store, they said staffing problems...really ? I bought some item souvenirs and I guess I was putting the one young girl out, asking for several different stickers ! So where do you eat, I asked. Topoco Tavern...food was awesome...had a pizza and their home made chips...to due for... and they have rooms and cabins..THAT is where we will stay the next time ! A 40' garage with no front to park your bike in, out of the weather !
