We had the misfortune to book this "suite" (as described in the January 2014 website) for our visit to the EAA. We were dependent on the website description as we were booking from the UK. It showed a sofa in a bay window and beyond that a double bed. It didn't point out that entrance was through the bathroom from... More

Beautiful Inn, beautiful town. Judy was amazing and made us feel very welcome at the Franklin Inn on Durkee. She was super responsive to any request and even served us breakfast in our room! The whirlpool claw-foot tub is amazing and I felt like a queen while staying in the Petit Chateau Suite. I highly recommend this sweet B&B to... More

My husband booked "the Big Apple" accommodation in January 2014 so that we could spend 2 days at the Air Show at Oshkosh. In the advert, there was a sofa with light streaming onto it and a double bed behind it. We arrived to find entrance via the kitchen into our shower room. From here we entered the bedroom. No...

If ever in the Appleton area or even live here and need a little get away this is the place to stay! We live only 20 min away, but once we step into this B&B feel as though we are in another time zone! We loved our room, the hospitality and the breakfast! We have stayed here twice and would...

The Franklin Inn provides the quiet and home feel that we enjoy on our travels. The living room areas are great for reading and relaxing. The innkeepers are so friendly and accomodating, and provide a wonderful breakfast, with great coffee! Excellent location to explore Appleton.

My husband and I came to appelton to pick up our son after an exchange year. He heard about the B&B from his host family, so we tried it out. When we arrived, Judy welcomed us in a lovely way. Since we were alone in the hotel, she went through all the beautiful rooms and suites with us. In our... More

It's interesting to read other reviews. We were first surprised to find out in the confirmation email that there is a surcharge for credit card payments. In their defense, it is in the fine print of the cancellation agreement 2/3s of the way down. I would have cancelled at that point but that would have cost me a $25 charge.... More

Thank you for sharing your feelings about your stay. This room is a first floor room to help someone not to have to deal with the stairs. We forfeited the two night minimum on this peak weekend to accommodate your shorter stay. I find it very interesting that we have had 3 repeat visits from the other guest that you... More

We love the way Judy takes care of us - the rooms were immaculate and everything we needed was there, even the hair dryer I forgot to pack! It is the perfect place for us since it is so close to Lawrence Campus, and plenty of room for our family to hang out and visit. Our friend from Appleton stopped... More

My husband and I came up for our first Packers game and debated many different options and we are so happy that we found The Franklin Inn! The house was so cute and the rooms are very nice and romantic! Breakfast was delicious and we felt very at home. We also loved Appleton and you can walk to downtown from... More
