We had never stayed overnight in Franklin, NC before, so we were a bit skeptical and checked a lot of reviews. The Carolina Motel was highly rated, and now we can see why! It was one of the most pleasant stays we have had. It was so much more than we expected. There were a couple of friends who traveled... More

The motel is very clean, and has a wonderful staff. It is located just a few minutes from downtown and close to restaurants. Easy access to the 441 loop that travels around the town and sits just far enough off the road to were you have peace and quiet.

This is an older motel, but the management has done a fantastic job of keeping it clean and up to date. Price is very good, staff is accommodating, and the porch is a perfect place to relax on a cool autumn evening.

We honestly were a little skeptical of staying here given that it is a "motel"! But, it didn't take long on the premises for us to get over that. This place is immaculate - I've been in full-service top of the line full service hotels that weren't this clean! Room 1 was comfortable and nice and clean. Was initially concerned... More

This motel wasn't spotless, but it was definitely much cleaner than a lot of places we have stayed. The bed wasn't super comfortable, but not terrible. The rooms definitely need some modern upgrades. Bathroom was clean but tub was slippery. We were given plenty of towels and soaps. Breakfast was very limited. I feel like it was overpriced for the... More

1. They refused to refund our last night when we had to check out early for an emergency. 2. We stayed in the small cabin that was advertised as heated and cooled....it has window air conditioners and baseboard heat....neither of which cools or heats the cabin.

This place was awesome! They took great care of some smelly hikers. They got us set up in the larger cabin out back. It was very clean. There was plenty of room and the hot water never ran out. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable about the area even providing us with maps of the area marking food, laundry, ect...... More

Stayed here a few years ago, and this place is still the nice little motel it always was. M/C friendly, the staff are very pleasant and happy to help you enjoy your stay. Old school motel, that is very well kept. Each room has a nice dry place to sit and enjoy the evening outside. They clearly take pride in... More

Hard to believe the quality of this motel for the small price you pay. As others have said, it is spotless...from the bathroom to the floors to the breakfast area. Visited with one of the owners and she was very gracious and friendly. Also good location..easy to find. Lots of close-by places to eat and movie theater just down the... More

The bathroom gleams so much, it reflects off the floor! It has the quaint look of an old fashioned motel, but freshly painted and updated. It looks like a great place for socializing, with chairs outside each room. There was plenty of room inside and just enough outlets to accommodate our device-intensive lifestyle. The WiFi was good. Very good value.
