This motel is a very well maintained and clean one that reminds me of ones I stayed in in the 50's. You can park right at your door. You really have to see to believe the great condition. While the room was not a big as some of the newer motels there was still ample room for 2 double beds,... More

Lovely old fashioned "motel" on the main thoroughfare thru Franklin. Easy to get in and out, very clean, and even includes a nice breakfast every morning. Reminds me of the places I stayed with my family as a child when we traveled around the country.

Check in was fine. The hotel and room appeared very clean, but I couldn't get over the strange smell in the room and just outside the room. I don't know if it was coming from inside or outside. I wondered if the odor was from the AC or a stray cat leaving its mark around the AC in back or... More

Stayed in the spotless large cabin this year (immaculate small cabin last year) and had to drag ourselves out the door when it was time to go home. Clean, friendly, helpful bang for the buck; can't wait to go back next year, if not sooner.

Stayed here with my young family. Great old school motel, super clean. No pets or smoking is allowed. Pool goes to 11 feet, not many of those around. Don't look any further in Franklin if you like great value, clean, and friendly, you have it here.

This was a very good choice for our road trip. The front desk was very friendly and helpful, and the room was spacious and clean. There was no coffee maker or hairdryer, but all in all it was a very nice stay. The pool looked clean and relaxing as well, though we had no chance to use it. There wasn't... More

This hotel reminded me of the hotels of my childhood where you could park outside your room and the pool is out front. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I was staying here after backpacking the Appalachian Trail and required 3 things: hot bath, cool ac, and flawless Internet connection. All these were met. The breakfast and pool were... More

Just got back from a spur-of-the-moment overnight trip to the NC mountains. We chose the Carolina Motel based on other Trip Advisor reviews and we found that they were pretty accurate. Anyone interested in this motel should understand it's a throwback to the golden age of American family roadtrips in the family truckster (part of the reason we decided to... More
