Only stayed one night but place was really well cared for. Bathroom was so clean almost looked new. Front desk staff was very nice. Nothing fancy but free wifi which is unusual now a days. Have a small firepit area that was comfortable and relaxing. Would definitely stay at again !!

This is a great little throwback motel with plenty of ambiance. Sandra at the front desk is awesome. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Saturday evening we had a group bonfire. Great home base location.

Great hometown feel, very clean, very professional and friendly staff, and our favorite thing is getting into that ice cold swimming pool. It feels soooo good on a hot day. Can't wait to come back!! :-) The Carolina Motel is in a great locale. It is close to great stores and restaurants. The people we've met around the fire pit... More

We had a 3 day stay at the two bedroom cabin and it was wonderful!!! Very clean and comfortable. We will be back again. View of the mountains from your front porch. Very quiet and comfortable. Full kitchen, dining room and living room. Home was cleaned up each day by staff. The pool and playground were very nice.

The room and grounds were very clean. The room had many modern updates but you still felt something nostalgia with the rooms and the outside. French toast was on the menu for breakfast. The staff went out of the way to accommodate us with a very late arrival.

I stayed at the Carolina Motel this weekend with a friend while in Franklin for the gem and mineral show. My room was clean and the bed was comfortable - my top two priorities. The continental breakfast was a nice spread of muffins, bagels, yogurt, cereal, coffee, juice and more. The pool area looked very nice. We didn't not partake... More

The motel is spotless and very up to date. David and the rest of the staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. Very close to many restaurants, very reasonable price. Next time we travel to Franklin we will stay there.

I love this area! People are down to earth and helpful. The last time I stayed in a motel was when I was a young kid. My husband is gracious to let me choose the places we stay for the most part. Since I have been used to mid-high level hotels, I was very wary of choosing a Motel but... More

This motel advertises low rates; however, they then charge you extra for your children. Traveling by myself with my 2 kids and received an extra guest charge for my 8 year old child. I have NEVER been up charged for traveling with my children. This motel is old and with the extra charges was more expensive than every new hotel... More

My daughter and I stayed here before she went to a harp camp in Dillard, GA. The room was quaint and clean--beds were very comfortable, and everything was in great shape. You can tell that someone really cared about keeping this motel well maintained, even if it was built in a previous era! We enjoyed watching a movie just down... More
