There was an accident in the highway on my way back home so I googled a place to stop and stay for the night. This place had the best rates compared to others but they weren't that much better so I wasn't expecting it to be as bad as it was. I booked the reservation and was told it couldn't... More

The recent winter storm in central Indiana caused a huge limb to fall from my tree in the backyard. The limb took out my service line, the meter base was destroyed and the riser out of the meter base was bent at a 90 degree angle. There was no way to get a electrician for at least a day or... More

We were there for weekend stay to see family in Franklin. The location is convenient, right next to the interstate and minutes from the heart of town. It's clearly not a new property; the grounds are worn and even a little rough in places (like the asphalt in the parking lot, and there appears to be an entire wing of... More

I stayed at this property July 28th. When I woke up in the morning and snuck into the bathroom trying not to wake my kids, I turned the light on to find 4 ants scurrying away. Then I turned the lights on in the rest of the room and see more. We had ant in our luggage as well. I... More

I got to the hotel for check in at 2 pm. People working there were friendly enough. Got to the room and it was not clean. You could tell someone had been in there. Bed not made, tooth paste in the sink and towels all over. I call the front desk and he (Kevin) came up with a key to... More

Staff was friendly when we arrived. People seemed to be hanging out in the lobby when we arrived which I didn't care for as they didn't seem to be guests. The air conditioner made a horrible noise when it ran. Breakfast was from 6am -9am. We arrived before 7 and there was nothing to eat but two apples a couple... More

We stayed here for 4 nights while participating in a horse show at the nearby Hoosier Horse Park (adjacent to Camp Atterbury) and felt that the Super 8 in Franklin was a very good value for the price. Our room with 3 comfortable double beds, microwave and refrigerator worked out great for 3 adults and 2 children, and was nicer... More

I didn't find any evidence of bed bugs which is about the only positive comment I have about this place. When we arrived around 9:00 p.m., the desk clerk was having a social gathering in the breakfast room with about 6 to 8 people just hanging out. I didn't get the impression they were hotel guests. The lobby and hallways... More
