Liked the old style of motel. Was extra clean and well maintained. Staff was very accommodating and friendly. Really enjoyed fire pit with the cool night. If in Franklin again, will stay there no doubt.

The motel was very clean and well taken care of. The double beds are a little on the small side in the room, as we are all tall. My son slept on the floor because of it (there were 2 adults/2 kids-14, 11). I would suggest getting a larger room for families. Courteous staff and a good continental breakfast.

When we travel, we try and find mom and pop motels to stay in. This particular one has been family owned since 1961. It is super clean, the young man at the front desk was very helpful and even got a fire in the fire pit going for us. The price is reasonable and you are close to restaurants. Highly...

We loved the friendly people that worked there. The room was very nice, but the smell was a little strong. I wish the room had a coffee maker in it. The breakfast was good, but there was very little room to eat. Liked the location and would stay there again.

We enjoyed our 2 night stay. We used the pool, and had breakfast. Staff was very helpful about local food, and things to do. Plenty of hot water in the room. Franklin is a nice quite town and not far from everything we wanted to do.

This was probably the cleanest motel I have ever stayed in. It was clean both in the room and outside on the grounds and in the lobby. David the receptionist was extremely helpful. He took time to explain the various restaurants in the area. His recommendation of the Caffe Rel was spot on. Great place to eat! The room was...

Only stayed one night but place was really well cared for. Bathroom was so clean almost looked new. Front desk staff was very nice. Nothing fancy but free wifi which is unusual now a days. Have a small firepit area that was comfortable and relaxing. Would definitely stay at again !!

This is a great little throwback motel with plenty of ambiance. Sandra at the front desk is awesome. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Saturday evening we had a group bonfire. Great home base location.

Great hometown feel, very clean, very professional and friendly staff, and our favorite thing is getting into that ice cold swimming pool. It feels soooo good on a hot day. Can't wait to come back!! :-) The Carolina Motel is in a great locale. It is close to great stores and restaurants. The people we've met around the fire pit...

We had a 3 day stay at the two bedroom cabin and it was wonderful!!! Very clean and comfortable. We will be back again. View of the mountains from your front porch. Very quiet and comfortable. Full kitchen, dining room and living room. Home was cleaned up each day by staff. The pool and playground were very nice.
