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

Wonderful location just outside Franklin with easy access to Cherokee, Bryson City and the Smoky Mntn National Park. Very nice, clean inexpensive room. Plenty of hot water and good TV reception and selection. There are also two really neat cabins for 2 or 4-6 people. Plenty of restaurants within 10 minutes and even more a little farther into Franklin, NC.... More

Please do not confuse with the motel with the same name located in Franklin, NC. This is motel is something out of the 1960s. Someone else in our group made the reservations, and described it as clean and inexpensive. They were right; it is a mom & pop single story, dated but well maintained motel. When I was a whole...

Your review has me asking myself a few questions (?) You have stated that this hotel is not to be confused with The Carolina Motel in Franklin, North Carolina, however, this is The Carolina Motel in Franklin, North Carolina. Our hotel has a 100% sanitation score, our bathrooms are all tile with a bathtub and a shower, a vanity with... More

It's hard to find places like this anymore, older motels that have been kept up and offer good clean comfort. In addition to a simple attractive clean comfortable room they also have wifi and a simple continental breakfast in the lobby. Don't be put off by it being on the four lane into town the building is set back enough... More

We stayed here one night. This is a very well maintained older motel. The clerk was friendly and the room was clean. Convenient parking right out front. Places to eat not far away. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely come back again if in the area.

I was a little apprehensive about staying in this type of motel (motor inn - older motel) but I was pleasantly surprised. This is a VERY clean establishment. Though the furniture is definitely older (yet well maintained), the mattresses have recently been replaced and are very comfortable. You will immediately notice how clean the property is - everything seems to... More

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.
