man at front desk nice, felt safe (I was alone) clean inside and outside, the only bad thing is I need a "non smoking room" but the room was overpowering of smoke. the beds and towels were full of smoke-----I will stay again.

The hotel is kind of hidden but in a good location. the exterior needs work but the inside is very nice. this owner really takes pride in his rooms and comfort of his guests. the staff is very nice and they try to help when you need something.

Thank you for your recommendation of our hotel. Our staff highly appreciates your comments and serving customers like yourself. We love to know that people liked their experience and would come back to visit. We did have an elevated sign that guests were able to see off the main street, but because of city ordinance we had to take it down. Please know that we appreciate your business and that we look forward to your next stay.

Stayed here for one night, we had booked based on other Tripadvisor reviews and were very disappointed.

We had a room on the upper floor which although it has been given a coat of paint had curtains with holes in them. The bathroom needs replacing. The stairs to the first floor were dirty as was the landing.

The guy on the desk was pleasant. Breakfast was just coffee and stale cookies. Poor value for the money. Would not stay again

Stayed here one Sat. night in June. Had an upper floor room in the back as the manager said they were nicer. Outside stairs are steep; use the inner stairway near the ice machine as there are less steps. It was a quiet night. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable but a bit too bouncy for my liking. We had our daughter with us so we had two doubles. The pillows were good, too. The sink is outside the toilet and tub room and the faucet was loud in the middle of the night! Wish the curtains didn't let in the security light as much as they did. Walked to the Mexican restaurant next door and had a nice meal. In the morning the coffee supplied by the hotel was delicious. Friendly staff and a good value for your overnight lodging needs. Right off of I-75.

Room Tip: Rooms in back are quiet.

This place has a fantastic Staff. Don't let the name fool you! I have stayed here at least 6 times and it is great. The rooms have always been very clean, the staff has always been overly eager to make sure I have a great stay, and the rooms are very clean and well kept. I can't say enough about this place. I will continue to stay at this Econolodge on my trips to Franklin. No Fitness Center that I saw, but I never looked for one either. Restaurants very close. Very close to the highway

Thank you for the warm compliments. We are always glad to hear from repeat guests. Repeat guests often write the most meaningful reviews since you have stayed with us multiple times! These types of reviews show the level of standards we have on a daily basis. Of course we treat all of our guests like family regardless if it is your 1st stay or 25th stay. We want everyone to feel at home here. We do not have a fitness center close by but have many close to the hotel. Thank you for staying with us and we look forward to your next visit.

Thank you for taking the time in adding a comment about your stay. Our side lot is dedicated for truck parking. There is plenty of room for the trucks to move around in the parking lot. We are right off the highway which makes it a favorite location for truck drivers. A couple miles away is a full service Pilot fuel station. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to your next visit.
