I'll preface my review by saying that I live about an hour and half away. We frequent Franklin several times a year going to concerts. Today was no different except my mother accompanied us. Lately, I've tried staying at locally owned places and dining at locally owned eateries. So, with that in mind, I decided to stay overnight at the... More

It was just by chance that we happened upon this motel while traveling. The beds were exceptionally comfortable and the motel was very clean inside and out. Had a safe, family oriented atmosphere with a friendly helpful staff. We stopped in for one night and decided to stay for two. We plan to visit here again. This motel brings back... More

We had an overall good experience. The owners and staff were very nice and accommodating. This is an older hotel that is exceptionally clean and comfortable. The grounds and pool were well maintained. They even made me a fresh pot of coffee! We are now recommending to our friends and would stay there again.

The motel definitely needs remodeling but towels, sheets and room were clean. The only way to control the air-conditioner was to stand on a chair to reach the controls. Even then it was impossible to read the control knobs. This wasn't a huge problem for me since I'm only 71 but might be of concern to older visitors or those... More

The staff are very friendly and accommodating. There is a fantastic Thai restaurant within walking distance. Each room has a rocking chair out on the porch and it was a relaxing place to rest and read. I would definitely stay here again. We stayed for two nights and everyday the manager would stop by to see that everything was okay... More

Room was clean, staff was friendly and attentive. Price was a fair price, and roughly half of the price of competition. Room had a fridge and microwave, ice on site as well as snack machines. Upon check out, one member of management gave the grand kids each a pack of crackers.
