Reviewed May 10, 2014 via mobile

Room dirty, shower doors gone, replaced with cheap clear shower curtain liner, room was not made up-had to go to office for towels, toilet paper & coffee. Curtains falling off rod. Pumping to shower head done with galvanized pipe. Just overall kind of gross.

Decent place, clean, had micro and fridge. Wifi. Comfy bed. Good price. Quiet. Couple good restaurants nearby, Two Al's is great for all meals and open "late!" Good location, close to Dollar General, which has everything you might need.

My parents and I stayed in two different rooms over the weekend, and we had a great experience. The rooms were clean, comfortable and adequate for our needs. Adjacent to the hotel is a great little restaurant called "Hog Wild" that offers breakfast on Saturday and Sunday mornings with very reasonable prices. Although there is no pool at the Franklin Inn, the public beach is just down the road. I was pleased with our stay at the Franklin Inn, and would stay again when in that area.

My biggest thrill this year was my trip to Florida to visit my best friend...on the way back we traveled Hwy 98 the coastline home...stopped in Carabelle at this little motel...Franklin Inn...nice big and CLEAN rooms...loved it and a fine shower setup...I had absolutely no complaints...I even forgot my Nook pad there...scared me thought it was gone for sure..But you know there are truly honest folks in this world and they are at this motel...I got my nook back and when I go back to Fla. you can bet I will stay at this motel again. Great folks...and the restaurant next to it has the best B-B-Que and shrimp we have eaten...Thank you Franklin

The Franklin Inn at Carrabelle has Large, clean rooms. Best shower set up! Clean and Large. Comfortable beds and pet friendly. Can't beat it for the price. Close to everything you need!! Good service and very quiet.

I find the value for the price is unbeatable. My experience was clean and comfortable with great customer service. I have stayed on several occasions with the same great service and really needed the quiet getaway.

Down season rate is 55$+tx which is nice.

Nice hotel, non breakfast.
Clean and comfy rooms.
Quiet and calm.

Only draw back, wifi is only in the lobby, so if you want wifi in you room ask for a room really close to the lobby.

Room Tip: if you want wifi in you room ask for a room really close to the lobby.
