Franz Josef is really a town for people who want to experience fun, thrills and nature and as such, there is a tremendous range of places to stay. The Terrace Motel gets our vote.
Good sized rooms with a comfortable bed, shower room/toilet and a compact kitchen area with all the utensils you need. There is the thoughtful complimentary small bottle of milk given to you when you arrive and if it's information you need of what to do and with which company to do it with, ask the owner, Logan. He is a mine of information and very helpful.
