This is a well run, very accomodating hotel. The management and staff pay great attention to detail and make every guest feel welcome. I recommend this hotel to all who visit Franklin, La. The breakfast was wonderful

The staff was great. The hotel was very clean, and the free buffet breakfast was great with all you could eat. The continental breakfast on Sunday was very filling for the trip home. We will definitely stay there again.

We stayed 3 nites at this nice quiet, clean & comfy hotel while checking out the seafood restraunts & the area in general. The staff was very friendly & accomidating. The breakfast was good. The restraunt next door was the BEST.

First, I want to thank the Forest Inn for accommodating our needs during a recent emergency in our own town which caused us to seek shelter elsewhere. The front desk was unprepared for the onslaught of refugees looking for a cool bed for the night, but the receptionist did her best. I booked this room through the toll-free BW number,... More
