For $99, I didn't expect much. But, I must say, The Franklin was clean & comfortable. There was a fridge, stovetop, microwave, tv & wifi. We parked on the street (free), as the lot was full. The Franklin is close to everything in Seaside Heights. No pool, but we were only here for the night, and besides, we came down... More

small family owned motel just steps from the boardwalk. There was a club or something nearby so loud music until 3am . . . but it's kind of to be expected in this classic Jersey Shore town. A beach pass is included in the price of the room. Check out was a little early - 10am. Rooms include microwave, refrigerator,... More

This is a VERY basic motel that I'd never consider booking if it was situated anywhere else; however on a August weekend this was the only thing available close to Seaside Heights boardwalk that was available at the last minute and I took a room. The experience was mixed. PROS: clean overall; helpful and accommodating staff; LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION (one... More

We had bed bugs, the water in the tub didn't go down, the floor was dirty, and my friend and I both got sick the day after we left. It was a disappointing experience which left a lot more to be desired.

Stayed at the Franklin Terrace Motel for 2 days August 13-15. It was better than expected. The rooms were clean. Very close access to boardwalk. Was surprised to see my room beds were made each day and towels replaced. I am absolutely recommending to friends/family. The price was perfect! Thank you to a wonderful/friendly staff.
