North Carolina Riders - Need Your Help

I'm planning a trip to Asheville, N.C. to do some riding. I'll be coming up from Florida. My plan is to spend a day coming up and finding a hotel, ride the Blue Ridge Parkway to Cherokee, take 441 across the Smokeys to Gatlinburg and come back to Ashville the second day, Still looking for a route the third day and come home on day four.

My question is where would be a good hotel to stay while I am there? Are there any that cater to motorcycles like up at the Deal's that have some security for your bike? I'd rather pay more and stay somewhere where I can park my bike safely.

Thanks for any help you can offer.

Interesting place. I'm more of a hotel person myself but I will keep this place in mind. Thanks for the information.

I live here so don't stay in the hotels much, but the chain ones near the Biltmore Estate (Howard Johnson, Doubletree, Comfort Inn) always seem to have a lot of Harleys and Goldwings around. The Grove Park Inn is super-nice and has a garage with security. Make sure you hit Hwy 28 north out of Franklin and Wayah Rd nearby - they're both on your way (sort of) to Deal's Gap, less cops, more fun! Once you're near the Gap there are lots of bike-friendly places (they want your money!) - have fun!

Thanks Twisty! I'll checked out those places when I figure out the dates I'm coming up. Thanks for the road suggestions also.
