Dodging the Roadkill: The San Ran Motel

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyRobbinsville, NC – When I hit the road, I’m always looking for AMERICAN owned, old school motels.  I don’t need a lot of “foo foo” like shampoos, conditioner, breakfast bar and all of that. I travel self contained.

I look for fairly priced and clean rooms.  I don’t want to step into the shower and see a bug, or a yellow line around the tub.  I check the sheets and pillowcases.  I’m EXTREMELY OCD!  I carry handy wipes and air freshener. (Ok, I know that might be over the top).

My last trip to the Smoky Mountains, I stayed at the San Ran Motel in Robbinsville, North Carolina.  It’s conveniently located near the Tail of the Dragon and the Cherohala Skyway.

Dodging the Roadkill: The Hub in Robbinsville North Carolina

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyRobbinsville, NC – In my most recent trip to the amazing Smoky Mountains, my travel partner and I stayed in Robbinsville, North Carolina.  We’ve stayed in various different areas surrounding the mountains, and basically we’re looking for good value and price, so we landed here for this trip.

Just down the road, not even 100 yards, we discovered The Hub.  We were VERY satisfied at what we found.  Here’s the back story:

Five years ago, Greg McCoy was running a VERY successful motorcycle rental business.  A friend of his approached him about getting into the restaurant business.  Greg HATES to cook, but the two of them ventured on and The Hub was created.  It started as a coffee shop, but that didn’t last long.
