One of our efficiencies.

Tuskeegee Motel and Convenience Store has been a family owned and operated business serving travelers, vacationers, and our 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 and have made many life-long friends and acquaintances with people who visit the area yearly for many different events. We have many groups which visit with us on a regular basis including motorcycle and sport car enthusiasts, hiking groups, fishing groups, and many others as well as the occasional passer-by who just needs a quiet, clean, room for the night while visiting the area.

Enjoy complete relaxation in a setting of nature’s beauty apart from the cares of the world. Our motel features standard rooms, efficiencies, satellite TV, Wi-Fi for our motel guests, a gift shop, and fuel. Our rates vary during the season, please call for pricing and availability. We accept VISA and MasterCard.

The Tuskeegee Motel offers a country atmosphere yet is close 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 is a great place to enjoy swimming, fishing, boat rentals, and horseback riding.

Only 15 miles away is Robbinsville which offers shopping and a major supermarket.

Another nearby town is Bryson City, just a 25 minute drive. This is where you can board the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad for a scenic train ride through the mountains.

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 from all over the United States and Canada.

Franklin, Pigeon Forge, Cades Cove, and Gatlinburg are close enough for a one-day excursion. If a enjoyable, fun-filled day with quiet and relaxing evenings is of interest to you contact us to plan your stay. We look forward to your visit.
