The room was a standard non-smoking room. It was spotless and clean and smelled so fresh. The grounds were exceptionally well kept. It was a quiet and nice place to stay. I would stay here anytime and will stay here when we make a trip back to this area.

Needed a place to stay in Franklin. Rooms were scarce that night in town, got some rude hangups and reception at 2 competitor hotels. Called Colonial Inn, no problems at all, great price, room very clean, park bike right in front of the room. I would highly recommend for a trip while in or going thru Franklin area. When we...

We stayed at the Colonial Inn with Mr. Patel as the owner. The room was extremely reasonably priced and clean and up to date with the TV and satellite TV. The carpets were freshly shampooed in our room the day we came into town. We will definitely be staying there again next year when we come up for vacation. I... More

After one night at the Colonial Inn, we decided to add an additional night. The owner/operator of the motel was friendly and helpful. Our pet-friendly room (104) was spotless and odorless, both conditions we rarely find in pet-friendly rooms. We were given pet waste bags to use in a designated area behind our room. The room has a large flat-screen... More

A group of six stayed here as a base for our motorcycle rides, and we could not be happier. The rooms were clean, the showers were hot, and the location was perfect. The owner was very accommodating - he made sure all of our rooms were together, he allowed us to park our bikes under the awning, and he even... More

We recently stayed here for a week and enjoyed every minute of our stay. The owner is very friendly and accommodating and Jay who works there is as well. The only issue we had was that sleeping late is not an option, as they demand to clean your room in the morning. I think the language barrier (with the female... More

The Colonial Inn in Franklin, North Carolina, was a comfortable little stop in our week-long vacation. It's not a 5-star resort, but it offers very comfortable accommodations for all travelers, and their little pet friends, too. The best thing about this little mountain motel are the owners, who go out of their way to make everything as comfortable as possible.... More

Very clean, friendly, helpful, quiet, and comfortable. The rocking chairs outside the room made it very much like home. It was a good location. We would recommend this motel to anyone. Staff was very helpful and made the trip more relaxing with their cooperation and service.

Our first experience at the front desk included a not so friendly owner who seemed wary of us and we could not understand his English. His attitude was not hospitable. My room had a terrible odor of unclean linens etc.. The furnishings were quita"worn", however the room seemed clean but definitely overpriced. I also had an interesting exchange with a... More
