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.

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.

Owner operated and it really shows! I think this is the cleanest motel I have ever Stayed in! Pretty basic, but with everything you need. Flat screen, free WiFi and roomy with a window to the back as well as front. The back had a lovely view of cabins And woods. Fire pit in the front with colorful Adirondack chairs...

This place was just as described in the comments. It was clean. The bed was comfortable. It's just a cute place with forest around it. Although I was here for a memorial service for a family member this time, I would come back. Staff was very nice. I had a minor issue with the lights between the beds not working...

Having booked this room on line, I was not sure of what we would find upon our arrival. The front desk staff (David) was a very nice and helpful man, the entrance lobby was small but open and spotless. Entering our room was nothing less than breathtaking, I have never stayed in a room so clean. I mean fresh paint,...

It was difficult to find an overall rating appropriate for this motel as there is no "good" rating. We had stayed here years ago and this time the motel was greatly improved. The rooms were cleaner and the staff were nice. However, no one cleaned our room although we were gone from 9:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. The bed wasn't...

The Carolina Motel is the cleanest place I have ever stayed. The bathroom is as clean as mine, and that is saying lot! We are thinking of taking a truck and loading the mattress and pillows up and taking them home. That is the most comfortable bed and most comfortable pillow I have ever sleep on. I called back to...

We stayed in the one bedroom cabin. It was everything you would expect in a cabin. Very homey feeling. Decorated nice. Room was clean and the front desk was very helpful. We enjoyed our stay and hope to return very soon. Thanks for making our stay very comfortable!

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.
