Wifi is way too slow and sometimes does not work at all. Other aspects are good. Rather i would say ok experience. It is good for sleeping for a night. Found some red stains on the bed. AC was working fine.

I have no words. Wait, I do. Gross. Disgusting. Dirty. Carpet was stained. Chairs stained. Not even a bottle of bleach can save this place. No alarm clock or phone and the television was old. Sketchy people hanging out front. Saw other guests grabbing ice from the ice machine with their bare hands. The pool was a half empty and... More

First of all the sheets had blood and hair and God only knows what else. Disgusting to say the least. Filthy carpets that stunk to high heaven. The pool or should I say cesspool I wouldn't let a rat swin in it. Air conditioning worked some of the time. Smelled worse than a dirty whorehouse. It was the only room... More

Room was not clean. Lights did not work. Towels had holes. The bathmat is a small piece of paper. And we were almost the only one in the place. Wifi would not work, and the clerk said "the wifi is slow". Go anywhere else!

Had an opportunity to be in Franklin, NC this past weekend and ended up at the Sapphire Inn. It was a quaint little place with all of the ammenities except in-room coffee makers. This motel was clean and not too crowded while we were there. My only problem was that the room was facing the highway and you could hear... More

Well. We stayed here on a fri night. The lady checking us in was smoking. The lobby smelled like smoke. Old key system. The bed was two mattresses on a spring. Strange. It's old. Old aluminum window. Found a peices of a wrapper in the sheets. Was hoping it wasn't a condom wrapper. In the morning the office doesn't open... More

first off they had a sign outside listing $39.99 a night. When we went to rent a room they rudely told us the rooms were $59.99 a night and "didn't care what that sign said" and refused to honor their own advertising. All other places were booked so we were forced to stay here. I went to take a shower... More

This was the worst hotel we have ever stayed in! We should have left as soon as we opened the door. The air conditioner made so much noise we couldn't sleep. Which was a shame because the bed was very comfortable. But I would never stay there again and would tell everyone to keep driving.

I was having my home remodeled for the week and decided to check in to Sapphire for a room. "What are you here for, the car show, the gem show, or to visit family," snapped the desk clerk. I told her that I'm having my home worked on and would like accommodations for the night. "No locals, do you hear,"... More
