Tuskeegee Motel in the Smoky Mountains of western North Carolina ~ located on Hwy 28 (Moonshiner28), only 3 miles to Fontana Lake, 18 miles to Tail of the Dragon at Deals Gap, 23 miles to Cherohala Skyway, and 12 miles to Robbinsville.

The Tuskeegee Motel and Convenience Store has been a family owned and operated business serving travelers, vacationers, and the community since 1967. Nestled in the heart of the Great Smoky Mountains we take pride in the tradition of a bygone era as a road-side motor lodge. We have made many life-long friends and acquaintances with people who visit the area for different reasons including motorcycle and sport car enthusiasts, hiking groups, fishing groups, as well as the occasional passer-by who just needs a quiet, clean, room for the night.

The Tuskeegee Motel provides a country atmosphere yet is centrally located to many of the popular Smoky Mountain attractions. Cherokee, only 35 miles distant, has a Cherokee Indian Museum and Reservation, craft shops, and Harrah’s Casino.

Fontana Dam and Lake, just 7 miles away, provides the largest contained lake east of the Rockies. Fontana Village has swimming, fishing, boat rentals, and horseback riding.

There are many scenic roads, but the Cherohala Skyway is one of the favorites, winding around mountain tops to an elevations over 5300 feet. Many say it is better than the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Another famous roadway is Deal’s Gap also known as the Tail of the Dragon. This twisty road attracts motorcyclists and sports car enthusiasts not only from the United States, but Canada and places world-wide.
