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... More

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... More

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,... More

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 That said, the place is small, outdated and lacking amenities and good food.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
