Good for a bed and a shower. Location was not ideal, the main office had an unusual odor and the breakfast was not up to par. I most likely would not stay here again or recommend it...You get what you pay for.

The room was clean, liked the white bedspreads. Address on Franklin made a easy trip to the river and Magnolia Market, Spice Village, and bridge. Easy to find places I wanted to visit, price was a deal. Staff was very friendly. Only com breakfast was skimpy and needed a clean bread container.

The price was good, the room was clean and the beds comfortable it was just a little worn. I was on the top floor. My... More

Really, when we checked in it had promise, but everything in my room was very worn, returning after dinner, the tv had only 1 station and the bathroom was flooded, they did fix the problems but it was not worth the effort it took.

This motel faces the highway and is barely off the ramp. Our room was ground level, the door had some dents and felt exposed to the exterior in a not-good way. Furniture was not banged up but carpet was very dirty. Bed was comfy and free wi-fi was fast. TV was fine. Free breakfast was all starch & carbs. The... More

We just needed a hotel room to stay the night and travel out early the next day. The room was clean but the door key didn't work and the TV needed hotel staff to "turn on" a switch (which they only know) for it to work. It was somewhat noisy as people had gathered outside a few doors down. Not... More

I went to this hotel expecting an old, outdated hotel. The look from outside was like a red roof (balcony with rooms looking at the parking lot but when I got inside my room, I was happily surprised! The furniture was all new (not even a single scratch on the desk or chest of drawers, all brand new). My king... More
