Stayed here because of the Nashville ice storm - very reasonable rate, very nice and efficient staff. Room is small, but has everything you need. Our room was clean and comfortable. I would stay here again. The room was drafty (lower floor, I-65 side), but again this was the winter storm/ ice storm.

Went on Vacation February 2015 to get away from the snow, Ice and low temperatures. On our return trip home we were booking hotels and checking weather forecast to avoid any hazardous road conditions. We had yet another winter storm coming from the west to deal with, it seemed like every weekend a new storm developed. We would have liked... More

Except for no PBS offering on cable TV, this motel is excellent for the cost of a room. The breakfast was better than normal for a Best Western motel. The room was comfortable. The linens were better than average. The internet worked well. We would stay again. I am not sure why certain Best Western motels do not offer PBS... More

We decided to stop for the night as dusk was approaching and we didn't want to continue driving in the storm after dark. We called reservations to insure we would get a room, originally targeting Bowling Green, but we were informed there was no Best Western there and opted for Franklin as we were just a mile or two away....

It took me two times to check into my preregistered room because of the ice on the steps to the second floor. I was told that if I did not like the room I should go to another property like across the street. the room was cold. The breakfast was cold. The front desk person was not helpful. I was... More

Stopped at this hotel on our way from Indiana to Tennessee.. I don't recall ever staying in a Best Western before.. For the roughly $60 we paid for the night, this was a great deal. The room seemed HUGE. We had a king bed, updated bathroom and vanity area, flat screen TV, and a smaller recliner.. The room was clean,... More

Newer hotel. Room was very compact, but did include nice desk chair, desk, lounge chair, microwave, refrigerator, flat panel tv, coffee maker. Shower had a great massage nozzle. Temp was thermostat controlled - that was nice. Heat was off when we got to the room (59 degrees), but warmed up quickly. Breakfast was a comfortable room with high back chairs... More

This Best Western is independently owned and operated. We made our reservation online and requested a first floor room. Our room was at the back of the hotel, easy access and quiet. It was clean, smelled nice without being overly 'perfumed', and the bed was firm and comfortable. We slept like babies! We have traveled up and down I-65 numerous... More

We stayed on Dec. 26th. Check in was smooth. We came in around 7:30 PM. It was a quiet night even though near the highway. Breakfast was the normal biscuits and gravy. They did have a pancake maker. They were ok but nothing to brag about. Overall a good value for a stopping point heading south!
