Heaven forbid you have an issue to try and resolve as management does not listen but prefer to argue and not try to fix the situation. I will never stay here again.

Very nice motel just south of Franklin NC

Pros: Appreciated the room being clean and well-kept. Appreciated the continental breakfast.
Cons: Please take information about restaurant being on-site off the internet. The restaurant is no longer there. You don't need that information anyways.
Location: Good location, easy to find, set back off road, so not noisy. Plenty to do nearby. Work the gem mines, hike, visit the downtown museum, etc.
Very good experience at Colonial Inn, Franklin, NC. Check-in smooth, room extremely clean, King bed comfy, wide screen tv, frig and microwave, adequate lighting, working alarm clock, everything top notch. Can recommend this motel to others. Would stay there again. Thanks for a smooth overnighter.

A bit shabby but clean and quiet

Pros: price and location
Cons: Move the air-conditioner.
The room was a bit worn and dated but the bedding and towels were clean and the night I spent was quiet. I needed to turn on the air-conditioner which required standing on a chair. Even then, it was impossible to read the controls. This is not the best system for elderly people. Fortunately, I'm only in my 70's. I can't comment on the staff since my only contact was brief at check-in.

Very good deal

Pros: Price, cleanliness.
Cons: Comfort of mattresses.
This was a very nice place for the price. I found the mattress to be a bit stiff, but then, I'm used to a new and rather expensive mattress at home. It was very clean and comfortable. I would stay thereally again when in the area.

Get what yo pay

This motel is by far the worst motel I have ever stayed in. The rooms are small. No coffee pot in the room, The sheets felt like you were sleeping on cardboard. There was a white powder substance along the baseboards in the room( to keep bugs out). Now let me tell you about the pool. On the first day we were there it was closed, Well the second day I too my 10 yr old daughter out to swim and the pool was nasty. It had dirt on the bottom of it and trash floating on top. Then to top it all off we discovered a MOUSE in the filter still alive. So like I said to pay this price and try to save money for you vacation,trip or whatever go do the road a bit there is another motel that looks like it might be fun for all. The price for it is * dollars more.
