“Decent but a little over priced.”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

As said before the place is dated but in decent repair. Good smelling towels and an ok/alright bed. The place is clean. Ann that runs the place is nice. Don't see her husband much outside the house. Hey I understand. I see he's watching the football games. Seems more like $59.00 a night for the area would be good. With taxes the $69.00 per night is actually $79.00. Is in walking distance to gas station store, Subway, Mcdonalds, Wendys, Ingram's Grocery, and KERR Drug store, also Ace hardware.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back will be further away from the street traffic.

We stayed for two nights for our trip to ride the dragon. Tidy rooms, nothing fancy, bathroom could use some updating, but all in all a great value. The staff was very friendly and the room was cleaned nicely during our stay. Will definitely stay again

My brother-in-law, and I stayed here Friday and Saturday night over Memorial day weekend, to ride the Dragon and surrounding area. You can tell that it's an older property; but, everything seemed to be in decent repair. Apparently, a couple own the property. Never saw him, and only saw her when we checked in. They were booked up with mostly older biker folks, which was our age group, and we met several friendly folks while there. There was only one building with about a dozen or so rooms, and it appeared as if at one time, they may have been another building across the way. The rest of the property has several mobile homes, that I can only guess are full time rental spaces. The only problem we encountered was that Robbinsville is in the middle of a "dry" county. (We were told it's the last dry county in N.C.) If you wanted to get a cocktail or a beer, you had to travel about 30 miles one way to the next county. We encounter no problems with our stay, and would return.

San Ran is an old but very nice motel and is conveniently located to several great motorcycle destinations. I found the owner to be forthright and upfront. The rooms were very clean and smelled fresh when we arrived. I saw some of the other ratings after booking, and was nervous, but was pleasantly surprised upon arrival. I even moved the furniture to peek underneath and there was nothing. No dust, no trash, no hairs just clean. Old, probably, could use a little maintenance, sure, but overall a pleasant stay. I will book there again when we go back to ride the great roads in the area.

We had 15 people in our group for a week of riding the Dragons Tail. Randall (the owner) was very welcoming from the moment we arrived. Rooms are older, so of course they are't up to the Ritz standards, but all in all we were very comfortable chilling and grilling outside having a few beers after a long day of riding! The location was great. Grocery and stores right across the street in walking distance. Road to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg wasn't too far either. Beautiful area. Thanks for a super vacation!

Stayed 4 nights at San-Ran while in the Smokies to ride the Tail of the Dragon and do cycle riding with friends. It is a perfect location for Deals Gap, Smoky Mts, Cherohola Skyway etc. Yes, the motel is older but had everything we needed and was very clean. I was very skeptical, and quite frankly, scared after I read the reviews posted here (had made reservations several months earlier). We were nothing but pleased. The owner, Randolph, was very friendly and helpful. There was ample parking for our SUV with enclosed trailer and our bikes. There is a gas station, convenience store, etc across the street. Frig, microwave and full size coffee pot in the rooms. Free ice. A patio outside to sit on along with picnic tables and a grill. It is not a Hilton so if thats what you are looking for its not here, in fact, its nowhere for many many miles. San-Ran was perfect for what we were looking for and would definately recommend it to our friends coming to the area to ride and would stay again without hesitation.
