Stayed at the Franklin Terrace Motel for 2 days August 13-15. It was better than expected. The rooms were clean. Very close access to boardwalk. Was surprised to see my room beds were made each day and towels replaced. I am absolutely recommending to friends/family. The price was perfect! Thank you to a wonderful/friendly staff.

There were no flaws with my stay at Franklin Terrace Motel. I recommend anyone visiting Seaside Heights stay at this motel, 150%. The room I had originally booked was unavailable so I was upgraded which I was very pleased with. The cleanliness of the room was very impressive due to the sandy beach area. The cost of my stay was... More

They actually told me it was cheaper ($69 cheaper) to cancel my reservation thru the phone app I had made and just book thru them. Appreciated that! We were given 2 free beach tags so we... More

Recently stayed at the franklin motel. I was pleased to find a comfortable room that was clean. The room offered a mini fridge and a microwave. The location was excellent. Just a block from the beach! The bathroom was a postage stamp, but met our needs . I would stay here again
