Awesome place on the NC side. Everything from camping, to hotel room type accomodations, to suites, to 2 and 3 bedroom cabins. Bout a 20 mile ride to the Dragon and a pretty cool damn to stop and check out on the way. I highly recommend.

I'm originally from VA. I'm excited to explore Cali. Went to Tail of the Dragon last year for wife's birthday. You will love Fontana Dam if you stay there. If you are going solo, that place also provides a bit of what passes for night life in the area

My advice is to stay someplace as close as possible. Last two years that I have went up there we stayed in Maggie Valley and even though it is a nice little village and the rooms were nice (Applecove Inn) it just sucked coming back at night in the dark in the rain in the mountains. I think I am going to take the others advice for next year and stay in Fontana Dam, seemed nice when we road through there.

Where ever you stay, have fun, stay safe, and post pics on here!

2 wheel Inn in Robbinsville NC is right between the Dragon & Cherohala Skyway. Nice and clean and a garage right next to each room. Pretty cool feature. Not a Radisson but very clean and comfy.

The Microtel in Robbinsville is decent and cheap if you are thinking budget.

Pigeon Forge TN and Gatlinburg have some place you can get a low price if that is what your looking for. They did not seem to be over booked last year in May.
Neither are far from the Dragon and a good ride to it.
They both also have some very fancy place if that is what you want.
I will be staying at Mountain Loft again in May.
