Best Western Franklin Inn
Ranked #7 of 24 Hotels in Franklin

Reviewed April 20, 2013

Just off the Interstate, the Inn is worth consideration for a reasonably priced stopover. Additionally, Franklin's downtown is charming with several "non franchise" dining options. Yes, there were some over-the-road truckers spending the night but that was no problem at all. Tha facility has been recently remodeled -- some well done upgrades but with some obvious flaws -- our room door was devoid of any weather stripping. Thus, weather and outside noise could easily enter the room. But, it was pleasant weather and our near-by fellow guests were quiet. The room was nicely decorated, the bed comfortable, the TV good and the bath abd room clean. The next morning's complementary breakfast was very nice.

Room Tip: Try for a room on the "back side" away from the traffic. Go to the downtown area.

My family were on a trip to the states and had to go to franklin to visit a family relative working there. we asked him for suggestions and he suggested this place amongst others. we found this place reasonably priced and so made reservations. even though it is exterior it was well maintained. lot of work is being done to beautify the property as is visible. breakfast was quite sumptuous. Kelsey and Mary were great.

Room Tip: try taking a room at the back. it is close the grocery store and starbucks and the restaurants aroun...

We had a group of 3 couples and chose this place based on reviews. The good recommendations were well deserved. For a relatively inexpensive motel, the rooms were very clean, had nice fluffy towels, and comfortable beds. The staff was friendly and the breakfast was very good, with hot dishes as well as the usual cereal and coffee. We would definitely stay here again.

very unhappy experience. The rooms are small (which isn't a big deal for the price). There are no comforters on the beds only sheets. Not to mention the bed's comfort is comparable to sleeping on a board. I have a large family and everyday they only give us 2 towels. It's a struggle to get extra towels out of them. The door is very unstable. The bottom could easily be kicked in and at least twice now I have had to get the keys reprogrammed for the room. The only friendly people are the people at the front desk. They have two computers in the lobby but when I attempted to use one they told me the computers were off. What's the point of advertising computers in your lobby if they are not accessible at all times? It seems like a lot of people live here. Parking is very difficult at certain times of the day. A lot of people park on curbs at night. On a positive note, their hot breakfast with eggs, biscuits, sausage, and gravy was good. It's obvious why this hotel is ranked 15th out of 20 in Franklin. I don't ask for a lot in hotel service but I was extremely dissatisfied.

This hotel is clean, the employees are friendly, and the breakfast is wonderful! If you want a big room, a refrigerator, and a microwave, this hotel is not for you; but if you want a clean room, a good bed, no noise from neighbors, and a good breakfast, this is the place!
