“Best hotel in area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2011

This is primarily a business hotel during the week. We found the rooms to be comfortable and modern. The staff is not only professional, but friendly and helpful. They offer a morning breakfast which is microwaved frozen foods, cereals, and fruit; it gives you a good start for your day. In the afternoons they actually put out fresh baked cookies. There are rooms available with a microwave and fridge. The only thing that could make this hotel any better is cocktails in the evening at the fireplace. They don't offer them, so bring your own. The hotel is very close to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, about 45 minutes drive time. There are many good restaurants that the hotel can recommend. We recommend this hotel and would stay here again.

The Franklin Hampton Inn is the ONLY place to stay if you want a clean, modern hotel. The other choices are dismal to say the least, most being over 50 years old and smelling of cigarettes. Franklin Hampton Inn is clean and quiet, has a great breakfast and friendly staff. Ask for a room with a view of the mountains on the second floor or higher, or you will be looking at Walmart...but even with the limited view, I'd still stay here again over any other place in town. I will definitely recommend this hotel to family and friends staying in the area.

We had car trouble that resulted in an unplanned three night stay at this hotel. As soon as we entered the hotel we realized we were stranded in a great place. There is a big fireplace and beautiful fall decor. The people at the front desk were so nice and very helpful. Our room was clean and uncluttered, with a large bathroom and really nice shower. We didn't eat but the breakfast was varied and the area neat and clean. They have good coffee. We appreciated having such a nice place to stay.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2010

Nice room with good service. Really liked the way the room was set up and decorated with lots of wood.
Unfortunately I was very disappointed with breakfast. At first I couldn't find the hot food. Individual portions of french toast or ham and cheese omelet were in white paper bags in a glass case. Next to the glass case were 2 microwaves to heat the white bags. When I tore open the paper bag I found my food inside a clear bag.
Not exactly easy to get the hot melty cheese omelet out of clear bag and onto a plate without mess or burning fingers. So instead of the buffet like feel of a Hampton Inn breakfast it felt more like a convenience store. We ended up going out to breakfast. For that reason I can't give it an excellent rating.
I hope Hampton Inn will rethink this way of serving hot food.
Other than that the hotel was great.

Our room was clean and in order. The hotel is conveniently located. The staff was fabulous and friendly. Nice choices at breakfast that varied each day we were there. We were so busy during the days and could have asked for a more restful place to spend our nights.

This was as close to perfect as a hotel stay can get. The staff was friendly, helpful and courteous. The room was quiet, clean and beautifully furnished. The breakfast was great and the cookies at the front desk were most appreciated. We had a wonderful time and are looking forward to returning in the future.
