We stayed in the smaller of 2 cabins on the property of the Carolina Motel. The motel itself is very attractive-a vintage building with a clean, fresh look. The cabins are located directly behind the motel, but in a quiet area beneath tall pines. We had privacy, a kitchen and grill, a front and back porch, and access to the... More

I have reviewed Carolina Motel many times, and am running out of superlatives for this clean, friendly, homey, gem-of-a-motel that never disappoints. Stay at one of the big chain hotels if you must, but I'd rather stay home than stay anywhere but Carolina Motel when I'm in Franklin.

If you are looking for a CLEAN place to stay (100 sanitation rating, I've never seen that), this is your spot. The attendant was helpful, friendly, and gladly accepted the printed coupon for an upgrade. The room was Large, clean, and comfortable.

After getting into Franklin, we had lunch downtown and asked someone if there was a good place to stay that wasn't part of a chain hotel and she recommended the Carolina Motel. It's definitely a clean place and the staff was friendly and helpful. We will stay there again if we're in the area!

We just love this hotel! This was our 4th stay within the last 2 years and it was just as wonderful as the first. We love being at a small hotel where you can just park right in front of your room. The rooms are always very clean. The A/C always cold. And there's a great deck to sit out... More

This motel is located at Cherokee, NC even though the address is Whittier,NC. We were looking for a nice quiet motel without being a big chain. We were very pleased with the well kept and clean rooms. Also, the very nice owners. We would definitely stay there again.

Nice older motel, the rooms are clean but not all of them have fridges and microwaves. So make sure when you make your reservations you let them know you would want a room with them. The free breakfast is bagels, muffins, cereals juice and coffee. The staff is very friendly, they gave suggestions and directions to sites in the area.

Stayed at this hotel prior to a photography class in the area. Was leary at booking this motel. It has that 60's motel look. BUT, the rooms where clean, comfortable and quiet, catering to a more mature travel crowd. The front desk staff was very helpful with good suggestions on food and local sights. The price is right and I... More

It was so clean the rooms and pool area! Reminds me of the old days before big chains! Unlike other hotels in the area you can sit outside and hang out at the pool. Close to the restaurants and mines. The price was super at 60.00. I am staying here when ever I'm in Franklin! The staff was friendly and... More
