This place looks nice on the outside and is superficially clean on the inside. Floor is sticky and hasn't been mopped in a long time. I put a wet wash cloth on the floor to wipe up whatever was sticky and the floor was black. Toilet loose and will just about throw you on the floor if you aren't careful. Dogs barking....people partying outside the door...I think this is a great place for single workers looking for an inexpensive place to stay.

The Franklin Inn appears to be a nice place to spend a night, but don't be deceived! Front desk gal was very nice & efficient, but again, don't be deceived! We were at the end of our travel day and needing lodging & there were no other options right in the area. We thought our ourselves lucky to have rented the last room at The Franklin Inn. Upon entering the room we found 2 chairs on top of the table and the bare floor was sticky, which could have been residue from a cleaning product but still disconcerting. The heater which was needed was stuck on 85 & then shutting it off was near impossible & then to turn it on again to cut the chill was near impossible again. The shower curtain was a grossy green along the bottom. The room should not have been rented out to anyone. We were sorely disappointed! My overall recommendation would be to keep on driving another 25-30 minutes ( if you're headed west) to Apalachicola & stay in a quaint historic district with multiple lodging options.

The room was very clean but the condition was lacking. The sink was cracked and there was no sink stopper. The bed frames protruded and because of the size of the room (very small with no room for a chair), all three members of our family repeatedly banged our legs. Three stars for the room but FIVE stars for Amanda, the manager. Amanda welcomed our family at check-in and recommended a great place to get breakfast. When my mother cut her shin on the bed frame, Amanda came out to the car with a first aid kit and bandaged my mother's leg. Amanda's hospitality, care and concern would have me return to the hotel - with shin guards!

My son and I stayed here for one night last weekend on an impromptu getaway. We got an excellent rate booking online at the last minute and were quite pleased with the accommodations. I usually stay in Hilton properties and wasn't expecting that type of experience. This reminded me of places we stayed on childhood road trips. The room and bathroom were immaculate. The beds were very comfortable. Air conditioning was too cold for me but the boy loved it. Community coffee was provided in the room. The staff was friendly when we checked in late. The Inn is really close to the beach and only 30 minutes to St. George Island. We would stay here again.

I have stayed here many times in the past. They are under new ownership which I can see a big difference in the place. The staff is very helpful and informative. The rooms are clean and affordable. I will be returning again.
