We were treated very well. We have a dog and this is a pet friendly Motel. The owner was present and was training a new desk person. All was very good. The room was clean and had NO offensive odors. The facility was in good repair. In short I would have no problem staying here again even though my wife... More

Room clean, quiet, shower hot with great water pressure. We had our German shepherd with us and it was just what we needed! Inn keepers helpful and kind, felt safe. Great bargain for the money. Close to the gem mining and great outdoors of beautiful Franklin

Enjoyed our two night stay. Disappointed that the pool was not operational and that the continental breakfast was not to be found! Coffee was hot and rooms were clean and comfortable. Staff friendly and helpful.

The room was nice enough for the price and was accessible on ground level. Pool was under renovation. The proprietor was very nice and accommodating and very apologetic about the pool being out of commission. He quickly returned to me a pillow I had forgotten before I drove off. I appreciated his honesty.

the motel is an older one but very comfortable and clean. friendly staff and modern look rooms. the price was very reasonable considering close by tourist attractions. The pool was closed down for repairs, they offered coffee but no breakfast items. I personally wished the tub would have a handicapped rail. When we arrived many of the guests were outside... More

I stayed with my best man in my upcoming wedding. For those purposes, the property was more than adequate. I wouldn't bring my wife back though! A few good things, 1) clean property, 2) pleasant front desk attendant, 3) and comfortable beds. A couple negatives, 1) window unit A/C in July in the south doesn't work. I was hot. 2)... More
