I called several weeks in advance to reserve 3 rooms for a four day weekend. I was treated with respect and friendliness. The receptionist answered all my questions about the rooms, nearby medical facilities, restaurants and shops. We arrived as planned, check in was smooth and easy. Our rooms were clean and neat. The beds aren't memory foam but that's... More

We stayed here a couple of years ago and found it to be fine. Nothing special, but clean and fine for the night. Not the same experience this time. The room was not clean AT ALL. There was a PILE of dog hair in the corner, and the rug hadn't been vacuumed and it was stained. The bathroom was not... More

Called for reservation from the road. Drove into the parking lot - no other cars in the lot. RED FLAG. Asked to see the room; returned the key and drove on down the road. And they were asking $85+ for this place. Reminded me of the Bates Motel. May have been OK but didn't care to find out, and definitely... More

This little motel was fantastic. The rooms were new and clean. The Internet was fast, and the ladies that work there were fantastic. It is about a half hour to St George Island, within a mile there are two great beaches. No extra fees for the dogs, and there was easy access to good dog walking areas.

We've been traveling around the US all winter, so have been booking economical properties the whole way. This unfortunately was not a good value for the money. The rooms are very, very worn. The carpets are filthy and sticky (don't take your shoes off until you get into bed!). The front desk didn't give us the wifi password and then... More

My wife and I took a gamble on a modern motel with an empty parking lot in the late afternoon. What a surprise: a clean safe room with friendly staff an an owner that refuses listings from tour books and websites. Wi-fi was good and staff recommendations regarding local eateries was accurate. Tip: check out the local WW2 museum.

Driving from Pensacola Beach and deciding where to stay for the night. The original destination town was out of rooms completely unless you wanted to spend 200-300 a night for 2 people. Over Budget for sure. So we drove on and happened to see the Franklin Inn in Carabelle, FL. A Haven for the Night. We were lucky to be... More

In my opinion,This motel is not a good value. The desk help is not very friendly, especially if you ask why the wifi doesn't work. I ask if I could use the lobby since the wifi worked there. I was answered with a few grunts of "yea I guess so". The rooms are not clean. The bedding is old and... More
