The rooms were booked this weekend, but we stayed close. We were able to enjoy the restaurant and entertainment here even though we didn't stay. There was a band Sat night from DC that was a blast! We had ribeye, potatoes, salad on Saturday night and it was cooked just right! So many bikes and activities it almost feels like... More

After going to Freeborns for years we were VERY unhappy this year. No fireworks, limited menu, no breakfast, not even coffee. Very limited music (DJ) on the fourth. It looks like this place is going out of business.

If you enjoy motorcycles, good food, and cold beverages, you'll love Freebornes. Especially on a sunny Sunday afternoon. Live music on Sundays. Right off the Blue Ridge Parkway. Sit on the front porch and watch the bikes go by.

Very friendly staff. Very accommodating. Old motel that is kept clean. Good food. A great stop. Excellent riding close by. Don't miss the deserts. 200 characters is more than I want to type. This is a decent place to stay and is reasonable

If you are a motorcycle enthusiast, this is the place to stop for a great meal or an evening of swapping stories outside rooms reminiscent of the 1950's. The knotty pine rooms are clean and comfortable, though the mattresses could use an upgrade. You can park your motorcycle right at your door under cover and find like-minded riders who love... More

Staff very friendly and accommodating. Went for coffee the next morning and was made to feel like regular, staff went out of their way to help with locating allergy meds for my BF... More

The Freeborne Motel is in the motorcycle capital of the world, OK, maybe of the Blue Ridge Parkway. It's Milepost 248. In the complex, there's a second motel, two antique shops (worth a visit) and a country store. Freeborne's restaurant is quite good and I loved the atmosphere.

We've stayed here five or six times and each one has been spectacular. We've had an individual room a few times and a cottage a couple times. All our rooms have been VERY clean and comfortable. The staff is ultra friendly. The food is WAY better than any other lodge we've visited along the parkway, and the prices are super... More
