“Nice hotel...staying again in about 4 weeks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

My family and I stayed in this hotel recently while in town to attend a concert at the Smoky Mountain Center for Performing Arts(also an excellent place).
We have no issues to list for this hotel. This hotel offers pre pay and with that we received an excellent rate. Our room had a seperate area that had a micro/frig and sink. Our young daughter used this area to play in and pretended it was her own "bedroom". Large TV, great a/c, decent breakfast, kingroom, clean, comfy beds, indoor pool, updated bathroom, close to shopping, friendly & helpful staff, close to restaurants, adequate parking, and a good mountain view. We love the area and have a reservation booked at this hotel for early October 2013. There is another hotel with in walking distance to the concert venue and we almost booked that but had past issues with that hotel chain because of the size of rooms being so small so we picked Comfort Inn instead and I am glad we did. The indoor pool was a big plus to this decision. While in this area we located a restaurant called Shoney's and had a nice dinner before the concert. All Shoney's in our area have gone out of business and this was a nice bonus.
Yes I would stay here again and I would advise others to pick this hotel also.

Stayed here after refusing to stay at another hotel. For the money, its nice, indoor pool, nice comfortable beds will definitely stay here again. Hotel staff is friendly and its a good location. Breakfast was decent, typical waffles, cereal, fruit. Coffee was good.

Although it could use some updating our stay was comfortable. The rooms were clean and the bed was comfortable. The room had another little sitting room attached that had a fridge and microwave as well as a little sink. Very nice touch. We did not use the pool due to lack of time but it did look nice although I really don't care for indoor pools as a rule. Staff was pleasant and helpful. If I ever go back to Franklin I think we would stay here again.

My room was on the first floor and surprisingly very quite. It was close to the pool and the breakfast area. The staff was very pleasant and always asked if there was anything we needed. The location was excellent for riding through the Smokies and close to restaurants

Room size, location and cleanliness fine...however could not check in before 4:00. 6 or 8 patrons hung around the small lobby area for 10-15 minutes all awaiting the magical 4:00 o'clock to arrive before the check in process could begin. The front entrance is not automated and the double doors present a problem to bring luggage in and out.

Room Tip: Franklin, NC is a great place to visit

Stayed here as part of our annual bike trip to the States. Ended up in Cherokee at the end of the day but could not get a room. Drove the 15 miles or so to this hotel and glad we did. Nice hotel, clean and comfortable beds. Shower was good. Large room. The guy at the front desk when we checked in was one of the friendliest people we met. Very helpful and recommended a pizza place in town for supper that turned out to be excellent. Large parking area in front of the hotel. Well lit and secure for the bikes. Hotel is a tower with elevators. Nice breakfast area. For you bikers, you can be on the 28 headed north to the Tail of the Dragon within 10 minutes of this hotel. This southern section of 28 is a great ride and an awesome way to start your day. We will stay here again.

My wife and I participate in the Choice Rewards program and try to stay at a Choice Hotel when we travel. If you prepay for your room (non-refundable), you get an additional 15-20% off. This was the first time we had done this but it did save a good bit of money. We spent two nights at the Comfort Inn. The room was clean with a mini-fridge, microwave, and a safe.

We did not avail ourselves to the complimentary breakfast.
