After many hours on the road, we were desperate for nice lodging. We were SO lucky to have found the Carolina Motel! I was impressed by the clean and welcoming atmosphere. The manager, David, had fresh cider and cookies out for the guests. As soon as we got into the room, we were blown away by the cleanliness! We've stayed...

Stayed here one night on the way to Tennessee. Motel is older but clean. Rooms are watch you expect for an older quaint motel. Good location in Franklin. Check in was easy and staff were friendly. Seems like a popular place to stop for the night.

Carolina Motel is a special little place. This place is well taken care of. Very clean and great customer service. The employees are very attentive. They serve a nice breakfast. We were introduced to this little motel a few years ago and now stay here each year. Our last trip, we actually went out of our way by an hour...

We go to Franklin a good bit to shows at the smoky mountain performing arts auditorium. Of late, we have tried to stay at locally owned hotels. I had a bad experience at another Franklin motel, but decided to give the Carolina Motel a shot. I'm glad I did. The room was tastefully decorated, though furniture was a bit dated....

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.
