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

Both Trip Advisor and the hotel's web site state that pets are allowed. We just called (Saturday, Oct. 18, 2014) to make a reservation. We requested a king room (available) but were told that no pets are allowed on the motel premises at all.

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.

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.
