Microtel Inn & Suites by Wyndham Franklin
Ranked #5 of 12 Hotels in Franklin
Reviewed July 9, 2012

Let's first be clear - thsi is not a luxury hotel. That being said, we found the Microtel Inn to be an excellent quick-stay crib. Yes, the roms are small, and agreed, they don't have ammenities like a pool and workout room. However, for convenient location, comfortable bed, better-than-most contennential breakfast, and great rates you can't beat it. Thanks Microtel!

Room Tip: No elevator. If you can't take a couple flights of stairs get a ground floor room

There was like 4 or 6 places to eat within walking distance. A short distance at that. Also there is a gas station next door for getting soda and such for room. Would stay again. Front desk very helpful.

Room Tip: We ate breakfast nextdoor at the huddle house. Being from wisconsin it was my first time. Very good...

If you wish to have anything larger then one queen sized bed to sleep in then don't use priceline.com when booking Microtel, Franklin, NC. Also, no pool, no workout room.

If a friendly and helpful staff is your first priority for a nice hotel, the Microtel in Franklin will fit the bill nicely. I have only accolades in this regard. In addition, the Fatz Cafe and Shoney's are a short walk away, which is quite convenient.

They do also accept pets, which is a very nice plus. This is why we stayed. I often stay at the Comfort Inn in Franklin when traveling with my small dogs...but, decided to try the Microtel for a change. I regretfully report it is unlikely I will make that decision again. Though I appreciate hotels that accommodate pets, and understand the rooms may not be in stellar condition, I don't appreciate them at any cost. Despite having some adequate attributes, the room set aside for pet owners had the most disagreeable odor. Some might argue that one should expect this when traveling with pets. I have enough travel experience to strongly disagree, however, and believe the reason you pay the extra pet fee is not only for the convenience, but to allow for the extra carpet/furniture replacement when necessary. The room was in dreadful need of a carpet cleaning or replacement (as I presume that is where the smell was emanating from)...as well as paint. The room was the most stimulating and garish tone of yellow I have ever had the misfortune of coming across in a bedroom...though it certainly matched the smell. Fortunately, we were far too busy during our stay to spend much time there.

It may very well be that the rooms NOT set aside to accommodate traveling pets are quite comfortable, so I cannot speak in this regard. I can only imagine that they are, given the Microtel seems to mostly have nice reviews. However, this was not the experience for us.

The staff was great. You could walk to Fatz Cafe which is one of our favorite places to eat. The Smoky Mountain Theater was also across the parking lot. We had a suite which was very nice.
Two things you should know if you book a room and it is on the second floor you will have to walk up. Also the ice machine on the second is very loud and can be heard from the rooms in the middle of the floor. I would want to room at the ends of the hall. The breakfast area is very very small but there is a good selection and there are trays that make taking you breakfast to your room very easy.

Room Tip: This is the place to stay if you are attending an even at the Smoky Mountain Theater.

What a great place to stay while in the mountains on business! The room was fantastic, and the service from the staff especially wonderful. The entire staff was very personable and knowledgable. Microtel Franklin, I'll be back next trip into you area!

Room Tip: Let them know if you have a problem with stairs, as I do, they made sure I had easy access.

We arrived late and the motel was full but our room was as requested and waiting for us. The staff were great and went the extra mile in all our requests. We took our 11 year old grandson to see Indians and ride a train. Lucky for us the Cherokee Heritage festival was the weekend we were there. There was also the Railfest that weekend in Bryson City so we were able to attend that plus ride the train. The Fun Factory was within walking distance of the Motel so we went and let him play the games. Went during my grandsons fall break but it didn't seem to be anyone elses so on the Mon. we went we were the only ones there. There were plenty of eating places and acctivities close so never a dull moment. Thanks, Kay for going the extra mile for us.
