“Clean, great location, best value for the money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2011

Stayed here for three days after finding great reviews on Tripadvisor. Staff Darlene and Debbie....fabulous and very attentive. Had a minor issue with their wireless which was fixed in under 10 minutes. Room very clean and just what we needed for a three day motorcycle trip based out of Franklin. There are more expensive places but not nearly as nice or as good a value. You can tell this is a good old fashioned, American owned family business. They also have one and two bedroom cabins that look great and I will try next time. Both were booked when I made reservations. We will definatley be back and recommend to all of our Harley friends.

Room Tip: We were in 18 but im pretty sure all the rooms are the same. Mine had microwave and small fridge

The hotel is a diamond in the rough! Although there are little amenities, the motel was clean, provided brand name products, awesome pillows and did I mention clean??? A great place for a quick night or two! Will be back if we ever are in the area and need a place to rest our head!

Good motel, very well maintained. The problem lies in the fact. That you are charged 10$ per child. The receptionist mentioned at check-in, because I booked on the internet there would an additional charge for my kids. Nothing on their website nor any of the on-line booking sites tells you of this charge. My kids are the ages 9 and 3. So a decent rate becomes down right high compared to surrounding properties. Just beware they charge for all people in a room, not just adults.

Wonderful, helpful staff. Clean, roomy. BUT, no hair dryer, coffee pot, iron & board, clock or bathroom counter. I'm not used to traveling with those items, especially when this is just one stop on the trip & all the other hotels will provide them. Had to air dry my hair, looked awful until the next hotel. Holes in our towels but they were soft. No blanket & holes in the comforter. Fridge was nice but froze the food & water. Nice to park just outside our door though. Made it easy to unload & load.

I was very sorry to hear that you were not satisfied with your stay with us. We do try the very best
to meet every guests needs. During check in you should have received an information sheet and there is also one in every room with hotel policies and amenties. We do have hair dryers,
ironing boards, irons, coffee pots available if you call the front desk whatever you need will be
delivered to your room personally by a member of our staff. The refrigerators in the rooms do have a control setting on them, it is possible that this was turned up to high. I have advised my staff to check this every time someone checks out. We do provide blankets in every room and there should have been one in your dresser drawer. We did have a problem with tears in our
towels that we received from our supplier and I have checked again to be sure that they have
all been pulled from inventory. I have checked all of our comforters and have not been able to
find any with holes in them.
I am very happy that my staff did a good job, however, I do wish that we were able to meet your
needs. We do appreciate the reviews that we get from our guests it helps us to find areas that
need improvement. Your review helps us to improve on several of the points that you have
made. Thank you very much for taking your time to write this review.
Sincerely,
Deborah M. Drake
