Overall, not bad for the price. Manager was friendly and attentive. Would have been nice to have a bathtub, but maybe other rooms have them. My room was right next to the road, and traffic noise was loud and constant. Biggest complaint was cleanliness of the room. Upon checkin found hairs on the pillow cases. No daily cleaning if you...

If my husband hadn't already occupied the room when my kids and I met up with him, we'd have never checked in. Yes, there is fuzzy mold in the shower. Ewww. The room felt dirty and I have used towels like they offer to wash my car at home. I agree with Mark N's comment...$50 for this? No way! (Water... More

Stopped in for a night while on a hiking trip. Rate was cheap, room was clean. everything worked in the room as it should (lights, TV, AC, fridge). Laundry Room was dark but functional. When the AC cycled off we could hear conversations in the next room, that was our only knock on the place.

Have stayed multiple nights as a hiker and even though I am used to roughing it I was not expecting to pay $50 a night for very old, dirty rooms. The bathrooms have black mold in large amounts. Some of the rooms only have a shower that is not in the best condition. Bed sheets have hair on them and... More

While I realize that this is a budget hotel, I was still expecting a clean room. When my wife flipped over the blankets to check the bed, there were several pubic hairs evident on the sheets. Got our refund and stayed elsewhere. I

The folks at Ron Haven’s Budget Inn were nice enough to hold a mail drop (food and supplies sent ahead of a hiker) for me while I was hiking on the Appalachian Trail. Since I made it into Franklin late Sunday afternoon, I decided to also spend the night there. There is no mistake about it; this isn’t the Ritz... More

I traveled to Franklin North Carolina early December. I wasn't sure about staying at this particular motel, but the rooms were clean, warm, and there weren't any bugs. The water was instantly warm/hot in the shower, and the mechanical plug in the sink even worked. The next morning I went to the lobby and talked to the owner. He told... More

We stayed here as hikers having a night of the appalachian trail and I'd have preferred another night in my tent. I think as the motel was full of hikers they just haven't bothered making the place nice. The room was grim, hot water was unreliable. The woman on reception was helpful and friendly and there was free internet and... More
