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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

It wasn't the Ritz, but I didn't pay for the Ritz either. It was clean and comfortable and in a good location. the cheapest gas in town was right across the street. Randolph was very accomodating and helpful and the room was cleaned and made up every evening when we returned. We couldn't ask for more! Be fore warned though,...
