Deal's Gap is really (really, really, really) geared to motorcyclists. The rooms are adequate size, simply equipped and spotlessly clean. And you're there for the roads, not a luxury suite, right? Ductless A/C units appear new and work very well. Even in intense heat we slept in cool comfort. There are benches and picnic tables to hang out at. The... More

I went there after i drove the tail of the dragon. They have real cool stuff to buy there. I definetly recommend checking it out. Prices are reasonable. I bought shirts and sweatshirts for the whole family and it was under $100 bucks. Ill be back next year for sure.

Cheap, small utilitarian rooms. The point is to not stay in the room except for sleep. Get out on the patio and meet other bikers. The restaurant is simple, they serve beer. convenience store wit souvenirs, no cigarettes, come prepared. Best pulled pork sandwich of my trip. Tender lean juicy and served on a simple bun.

The Location is amazing and there is nothing closer to the 129 Dragon. That said, the place is small, outdated and lacking amenities and good food. But what you get is real, old school biker vibe (at times) and always a steady flow of tourists and wannabes. The people are usually pretty cool and you will meet folks from around... More

With photo ops, merchandise shop and restaurant, what else could you ask for? I was here on the two stroke club, Miata club and 350Z club weekend. It sounded like an angry horde of landscapers with weedeaters at times. The food was okay as I inquired and found that everything comes off the truck. The hamburger was good and onion... More

Deal's Gap is a place for motorcyclists. It's conveniently located at the top of the Tail of the Dragon, and that's why we choose to stay here most of the time. Usually we camp, it's supposed to be $15 per tent with electricity hookups, a bathhouse nearby, grills, and a fire pit. The motel only has 14 rooms ($65-$90), and... More
