I don't usually write reviews but this place was way more than expected. I travel for work a lot and have stayed in just every type of hotel you can think of, but this place was by far the cleanest place I've stayed. You can tell immediately that the people that own it take pride in their place. It is...

My husband and I spent the evening here on 9/17/16. As soon as we opened the door to our room you could smell how clean it was. The bed was soft and comfortable. I was also surprised at the new Vizio tv on the wall. This place was great and we will stay here again.

My husband and I were traveling home to Pennsylvania from a vacation in Florida and stayed at this motel. It was extremely clean and well taken care of. The large flat screen cable TV was super. The linens and towels were plentiful and smelled wonderful. The staff couldn't have been nicer. It was a VERY pleasant experience. Thank you, Carolina...

My family stayed there. They were here for my wife's memorial service. After the service I stopped by to tell them goodbye. I had my two little dogs in my truck with the AC running. The owner sent one of the workers over to tell me to leave because dogs are not allowed on the property. A sad day was...

I am very disappointed in your review of our hotel. The Trip Advisor forum has been designed for registered guests to write reviews based on their full experience of their stay with us. When a family member writes a review of our hotel based on a 10 minute experience I do not feel that it can be considered fair or...

This is a good place to stay while in Franklin. All of the staff were really nice. They were also helpful. The motel was also very clean. I wish there was more place like this. I like it better than any of the other places that I have stayed at while traveling. They are also reasonably priced.

This was one of the cleanest hotels in have ever stayed in. The staff was super nice and friendly. They have a fire pit out front for guests to use. They also have a play ground for those with small children. We would not hesitate to stay here again.

We found the Carolina Motel to be much better than the website and previous reviews made it out to be. It is apparent that the owners and staff really care about this Motel. From the beginning, Dave at the front office was so welcoming and shared lots of local information and current happenings. And after getting to the room, he...

My husband and I decided to take an overnight trip to the mountains for his birthday and chose this place based on its glowing reviews, and we were not disappointed. It is an old-style motel that's been thoughtfully updated so that it has all the bells and whistles modern travelers want, like wifi, updated bedding, and flat-screen t.v., all while...

My wife and I stayed here for a few days while visiting Franklin on business. It is an older motel but contains everything you need and it is super clean with a very friendly staff and affordable rates! The breakfast was good as well. The location is also very convenient to sightseeing in the area!

Older motel that has been spruced up, is very clean and neat, in a great location, and at a very reasonable price. Would not hesitate to stay here again. Recommend highly for someone seeking great combination of budget price while still getting a clean and quite room.
