A no frills hotel. Exceptionally well kept and clean. Price was surprisingly reasonably priced given the fact that it was so well kept...not like the motel we had previously stayed at in the same 50 mile radius the previous night. The owner was also very accommodating when asking for a room on a late Sunday night!

Had to stay the night and chose Franklin inn. Should have driven to Tallahassee for more options. Bed was hard as a rock. There was no free breakfast as advertised. No breakfast at all except coffee Remotes for tv are very hard to operate having to hit multiple numbers on the keypad to get to a channel every time. Room... More

Owner of the Franklin Inn was very friendly. The room was ok for the price. Disappointed by their advertisement that they served a continental breakfast. All they had was coffee ! Guess we should have checked this before we checked in.

We stopped here because it looked like a good spot. The staff was helpful and friendly. We got a nice room with a king size bed. The room was a good size,clean and fresh smelling. The bathroom was large and spotless. The hotel is pet friendly. Food is nearby We will stay here again if we are in this area... More

If you enjoy very firm beds and flat pillows this is the place for you. Unfortunately we checked in and 2 hours later went back to sit down only to discover the low quality beds and pillows. Since we sat on the beds they were unable to give us a full refund. So I guess here's my $20 review since... More

Specifically pet friendly and at no extra charge. Rooms are clean and nicely decorated. AAA and military discounts. Fantastic rate. Doggy trail. Location not brilliant but exactly what we needed. I would definitely stay there again :)

We needed a one night stay and this motel was perfect for what we needed. The front desk was very friendly and the room was large and clean. What more do you need? There was in room coffee, plenty of towels.

I called several weeks in advance to reserve 3 rooms for a four day weekend. I was treated with respect and friendliness. The receptionist answered all my questions about the rooms, nearby medical facilities, restaurants and shops. We arrived as planned, check in was smooth and easy. Our rooms were clean and neat. The beds aren't memory foam but that's... More

Stayed here on our way to Panama City we first stopped at 2 other places. We're booked due to the game. The front desk girl was very friendly and smiled rooms were clean and the air cond was on so there's wasn't any of that odor that some places have
