definitely a place to avoid. over-priced. mold on shower curtain, dirty bath mat(towel). when we arrived, the room had a strong musty odor that they tried to mask with lysol or fabreeze. it didn't work. we will not be returning! we had to request toilet paper!

I stayed here for 4 nights and this place was clean and the staff was very attentive. I would stay here again. Since trip advisor wants 200 characters , I will ramble on. I really don't know what else I can tell you.

Solo traveler, off season. Positives: cheap, one block from beach, walking distance to Casino pier, extremely friendly accomodating staff, the cleanest rooms I've ever stayed in, fridge, microvave, stove. Negatives: Limited offstreet parking (what you see in the photo is it); tiny bathroom; slightly saggy bed (I like firm) rooms not sound proof; and the deal breaker for me, advertised... More

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.
