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

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.
