I don't think the hotel has had a renovation since it was new. Housekeeping does not clean rooms every day if you're staying more than one evening. Bring your own sanitary wipes to insure cleanliness. VERY noisy from all the motorcycles and traffic from neighboring road. There's absolutely nothing to do in Robbinsville. It's a dry country (no alcohol) so... More

Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Great location--our group headed out to the Tail of the Dragon the next morning. t was handy to park right outside our room. Ann was a great innkeeper and made us feel right at home.

Stayed one night during peak season, therefore in light of that price probably reasonable. We arrived late and left early next morning, so stay was brief but had everything we needed. Frig, micro nice touch, satellite TV, spotty AT&T cell service in this entire area.

At dark the city rolls up the streets, turns off the lights and lets 3 million crickets loose. Very peacefull and quiet, very clean motel, friendly management. This place was built 40 years ago and still run by the same family. They have kept the rooms modern and maintained them better than most people maintain their homes. Only have 10... More

We stayed here so we could ride the local motorcycle roads. For the price, there's much better options elsewhere. We had to cancel one of our rooms a few days before arriving and were told that although it was 3 days before, they needed a FULL 72hrs (we called at 10:00am three days before arriving). Service wasn't bad, but wasn't... More

We have stayed there for ten years. We have never had any problems there. They treat us as if we are family. We love staying at San Ran! Ann and Randall are really great people! We HIGHLY recommend staying here! They are motorcycle friendly, clean rooms, great prices, quiet area and very accommodating. The rooms are large. They go out... More

Arrived late after doing the "Dragon." Did not have reservations. We were met with open arms and friendly attitude. Room was clean, comfortable, and quiet. This motel caters to motorcycle travelers (which we were). Ann provided information on local eating establishments that proved to be excellent. A bit pricey but worth it.

This motel I have stayed at several times. The owners are a second generation to run this motel. The rooms are large and it's nice to be able to open those screen doors and let fresh air in. I was a little upset that I did rent a roll away bed and did not need it when we arrived. She... More

I am the housing coordinator for my company. Our employees travel throughout the US for 3 months at a time and I set up their travel accommodations. My employee actually found this motel and I agreed to speak with Ann (seems to be the only person that works here) to negotiate a rate because my company was paying for the... More
