“Worth $50 (not a dollar more)”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

I'm not hard to please, and I'm not eager to give bad reviews. But after reading the comments and ranking for this place, I expected better. If you don't mind a toilet that's practically in the bathtub, a little mustiness, people occasionally hanging around outside, a pool in real need of upkeep, then yeah, awesome. If not, continue to another exit. Or pay another $15 somewhere else.

Firstly thank you for your review and secondly I am sorry that you did not have a completely pleasant stay during your travels. We realize that several elements in our hotel and the design of our rooms may not quite suit what some of our travellers are expecting but we are currently going through a remodel phase and upgrades to our rooms. The next time you are passing through Franklin, KY I hope you give us a chance to host you. Please call us to reserve you a room for your future travels @ 270-586-5090 so we can give you a 15% discount on your next visit. Thanks again.

This hotel is nothing special, BUT if yo want a clean cheap hotel then this place is for you. This is not a Holiday Inn Express so if your looking for something like that then don't bother. If you don't mind out dated furniture and an old console TV, then this is a good place. What like interaction I had with the staff, they were helpful and polite.

Dear crash0473,
Thank you for being a top contributor on Tripadvisor. While you take your time to review us it helps us to being a better and improving hotel in the area. I do agree with your comments on needing new and updated standards of the room. Hopefully during your next visit through Franklin we will get done with the upgrades. I am glad our front desk clerk provided great service during your stay. Thank you again for your business and perhaps you give us an opportunity to allow us to welcoming you back.

Take care,

I was surprised at how clean and new looking this Super 8 was. There were new blankets and quilts on the beds, new shower curtains in bathroom. The stucco on the outside of the building looked like it had just been redone. The pool was clean and lots of chairs there to use by guests.
The only downside was the morning breakfast-there was no decaf coffee. It did have a make your own waffle maker though and it worked very fast.

booked this room through priceline.... we paid $55 for a 2 1/2 star hotel. I expected better. we checked in and the man at the desk said we booked a 1 queen bed room. I never heard of that. I asked for a king and he said I would have to pay $15 more for a king room. there were 3 cars in the entire parking lot. rooms were abundant. I excepted my room and went in to a very musty smelling room. everything was old and dingy. the bed was not comfortable to even sit on. we walked out and stayed at a different hotel down the street.
