The rooms were good. The breakfast was alright. But the pool has not been open for the last 2 years. Both times we stayed there the boys thought they could use the pool to relax but it is always closed. We are staying again this May and I bet it will be closed again. But the rooms and hotel are...

We stayed one night, we were told at check in that the pool was unavailable. The place was reasonable and was for the most part clean. Stayed awake until midnight as the people in the room above us kept stomping around and had the TV so loud we could hear every word. The toilet in our bathroom had a very... More

On Tuesday, January 20th, I called the motel to reserve a room for the 23rd and 24th. One of the things I specifically asked about was the pool because I use it for physical therapy for my knee. We left home early the 23rd and arrived at 3:30 so I could exercise before visiting relatives in the area. When my... More

local friends told us this wasn't a favorable area but we felt it was safe, esp due to indoor access to rooms. The hotel was clean and although the decor was a bit dated it was in good shape. The room had a slight smokey smell, probably a previous smoking room. Bed had 2 types of pillows, hard & soft,... More

A very comfortable, nicely attired hotel near the freeway but very quiet. Downtown Franklin just a few miles away offer many restaurant choices. Beds were very comfortable and rooms were equipped with nice flat screen TV. Everything about this hotel looks brand new. Nice indoor, heated swimming pool and a small workout room are also available. Friendly staff whenever we... More

Have stayed at this property several times in the past two years. Rooms clean and quiet. Meeting room adequate for large or small groups....we had approx. 30 people with room to spare. Breakfast average. Enjoy the evening cookies and popcorn.

Rooms were great. Beds amazing. Loved having fridge and microwave. And loved the choice of soft/firm pillows! Pool was clean. Breakfast was good. Short drive to shopping and food. It was a good place to stop and break up our 700 mile trip from Wisconsin to Alabama.

We took off from home with out having a place to stay. As it got later, we called and booked this room. We had stayed here before when it was the Carlton, must have been because of the pool and breakfast for the kids. It is older but nice rooms, clean bathrooms, good service, would stay again.
