I am starting to plan a trip to the Tail of the Dragon area for this fall with my dad. My dad is in his 70's and is still riding, there may not be many chances for us to do this. Where is a decent, inexpensive but roach-free hotel/motel to stay at in the area? I'd love to hear of folk's experiences in this. I have not settled on a specific date yet, I'm thinking in September or October (weather should be decent right?) Are there any times to avoid? I do what to time it so we are there during the week and not on a weekend.
