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

After reading the reviews of the hotels in St George Island, we decided to stay in Carrabelle. I am so glad we did. The rooms were clean and the staff was ideal. So helpful and considerate. We ate at the restuarant next door, Hog Wild and it was excellent. Will absolutely stay there again.

From the pleasant and courteous check-in, to the dining recommendation, to the sleep comfort, and the location...Wow! The family managing this property know how to treat their guests well, and we wish we could have gotten the room a 2nd night. The only negative? There aren't enough rooms!!

We have stayed there when our other place is full. It's a no frills place to stay. It's clean but the only thing that kinda bothered me was the smoking smell even though we had no smoking, and the bed wasn't that comfy but my back is bad so I'm very picky about beds. Other than that you will for... More

Room dirty, shower doors gone, replaced with cheap clear shower curtain liner, room was not made up-had to go to office for towels, toilet paper & coffee. Curtains falling off rod. Pumping to shower head done with galvanized pipe. Just overall kind of gross.

Decent place, clean, had micro and fridge. Wifi. Comfy bed. Good price. Quiet. Couple good restaurants nearby, Two Al's is great for all meals and open "late!" Good location, close to Dollar General, which has everything you might need.
