The Best Western Forest Inn in Franklin, LA provided a pleasant and comfortable place to stay during my recent work trip to the area. It's clean and has by far the best food around. The staff and the food at the Forest is great. The free breakfast is incredible. I highly recommend the Forest Inn. You won't be disappointed.

I have stayed at this hotel many times in the past 8 years and have never been anything but extremely satisfied with the staff and accommodations. I will continue to stay at this facility and would recommend anyone stay at this facility when visiting Franklin LA or nearby areas.

Our stay at this Best Western was excellent. Although the furnishings are not the newest, the room and restaurant were extremely clean. Most places this age are not exactly clean. This one was beyond expectations and the staff members were very friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend!

Restaurant was awesome...good service, delicious food. Only complaint about room was a slightly musty smell. Nice pool and bbq area tho we could not take advantage due to rain. Close to various stores and close to the concert we were attending.

Very comfortable at this spot, but facility a bit dated. I would stay again because it was clean and convenient. Everything worked fine and I left happy! The room was non smoking but you always get the idea that it was used as smoking at one time. Did not use the pool but that area looked newer and attractive.

..unless you are lost and it's the middle of the night and can't find other accommodations. I don't like to tell people not to stay in a place but if you are a family traveler or have more refined tastes when it comes to your accommodations, I would never recommend this place. Let me make a disclaimer by mentioning I... More

I am very sorry for the problem that you had with the water pressure at the hotel on Saturday morning. As soon as it was reported to us.. the maintenance supervisor was called and came out to check it. When he discovered that it was a pressure problem with the City of Franklin...he switched over to another source of water... More

We spent one night at the BW Forest Inn and had an excellent experience. The full, hot breakfast at the in-house restaurant was first rate. Both Jenny & Tammy were quite helpful and polite. The support staff and wait staff were mannerly and respectful. Room was clean, spacious, quiet and comfortable. We will stay there again when exploring area antebellum... More
