We stopped in and spent several nights at this hotel in Franklin, NC. The people running it were absolutely fabulous! They were nice, honest, caring people which is tough to find nowadays. The rooms were clean with a fridge and microwave also. I suggest anyone staying in Franklin, NC spend their time here! Well worth the money.

The majority of the review talk about how clean the rooms are. They are not joking. It is very hard to find any dirt. You will have to search. The beds are very comfortable and the pillows are fine. We had the King room and the bed felt bigger than ours at home. We slept like rocks. The one review...

My family planned to be in town earlier then we arrived. It was late and we came across Colonial Inn. Nice rooms, friendly staff, reasonable prices. The rooms were spacious, clean and quite. I do plan to return this coming summer.

The facilities are ok, a bit dated but clean. Location is great, don't forget to visit the dry falls on the road to Highlands...better in winter than summer. Ask the owner for any advice about the area.

I was so excited to find this pet-friendly room in Franklin. It's not modern or sleek, but it had everything we needed in a place to sleep while visiting relatives in Franklin. There is a mini fridge and a microwave and the room was clean and comfortable. The tv and wifi worked easily. The Thai restaurant down the street was...

We rented a cabin in Franklin, NC and we decided to come to Franklin four days prior to getting in our cabin. We stopped at the Colonial Inn and looked at a room, spoke with management and decided to stay here until we could go to our cabin. We stayed here all four days and was very happy with our...

My first impression of The Colonial Inn was that it was very dated in decor, I don't think it has been redecorated since the 1980s. Don't let the decor put you off though, as this motel was the cleanest I've seen recently - the bed was ridiculously comfortable and the shower was great. Something to note is that the card...

Being that it was dark and we were not familiar with our surroundings and have no GPS, we had to call the office several times for directions. Everyone there...

The Colonial Inn is a great place to stay at a great price. The price was so reasonable, that I was leery of staying there. But, after reading the reviews, I booked a room and was not disappointed. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and comfortable. We were given access to wi-fi, coffee in the...

This is an older property and I expected an average or poor experience as I usually stay in higher in properties. The owner was courteous and kind, even though I showed up after hours (11pm) to check in. Room was clean, bathroom was spotless and bed was comfortable. Very pleasant experience from an owner who really cares about his business.
