This hotel was great, clean inside and out and the staff was super nice and helpful. The beds were comfortable and the breakfast was simple but good, cereal, muffins, bagels and french toast etc. They even had a fire pit going with chairs and rockers. Has all the comforts and for the price it cant be beat. I will return!

Hotel was nice and clean and room was ready before stated check-in time. We had a king size bed which was very comfortable and quite roomy. Plenty of places to eat in the Franklin area. We were very happy with our stay and experience at the Carolina Motel and we would not hesitate to return!

Without doubt, the best independent motel we've ever used. Beautiful spacious rooms, well furnished with great beds and comfortable chairs. Super Bath and shower...everything well thought out and provided.

Carolina Motel is clearly operated by people who care about the property and the guests.

Highly recommended. We travel a lot and this is a very special place.

Room Tip: One of the large family rooms, but all the rooms are excellent.

Very pretty and quaint setting. The room was clean, and well maintained, fresh and welcoming. We felt safe and slept comfortably. The attendants were very pleasant and personable. They have a well maintained pool and extra large open area wood burning fire pit to sit around in the evening and relax in the evening. Very central in the mountain region. Was just a short reasonable drive through the mountain to and from Dollywood park and other parks for hiking and other fun outdoor activities.

Room Tip: All on the ground level in a strip. There are 2 larger log cabins available as well.
