Recent guest reviews

The check-in staff and everyone at the hotel was great could not have been more pleased...Christine noticed that I had my in-laws ages 81 and 78 with me and dropped us down to the first floor.... great morning breakfast staff ... they were working hard to fill anyone's needs as they came up.... needless to say we'll stay again A++++

i want to commend the people who work here. The following were wonderful: Keeni Amanda Lisa Christine Sharon Hallie Brandy Angie The ladies who work in the kitchen are so nice and friendly and want to serve everyone's needs. They have the best hot biscuits and cinnamon rolls.

We had a quick stay but the room was clean and the staff was friendly. Check In was quick and the room was ready to go. Well equipped breakfast. Ms. Brenda and Ms. Sharon kept the breakfast area well stocked and clean and were very helpful.

They take such good care of us. Had a slight problem in the room and it was corrected quickly. Lisa did a great job. It is a great place for a wonderful breakfast and again the people are great. The pool and Jacuzzi are really nice and always kept clean. Easy to get into and out of. Right on the expressway.

A great hotel with excellent staff including Rena ? spelling, Brenda, Christie. Though everyone was welcoming and pleasant, including housekeeping staff. Kudos to all. Impressive! Only downside was a little pricey for a fairly rural area.

I have tried other hotels and was assured once again that Holiday Inn is better than the rest. The kindness of the staff was amazing at this location, the rooms were clean and neat and we didn't have to worry about sleeping in dirty sheets. The room was top notch in cleanliness. We felt very comfortable and safe, we would stay again!

I will be the first to admit that this location is kind of remote from entertainment, but right off 65. I stayed here for 6 wks for work, and I have nothing to complain about. Angie, Christie, Rana, Dee, Keeni, Sharon, Maye, and Brenda were always happy to help. I will stay here again, as I travel the I65 corridor a lot.

This property has received some great reviews, so we thought we would give it a try. The reviews were accurate!! This is probably one of the nicest Holiday Inn Express properties we've stayed in. Very clean, quiet, comfortable, fantastic staff, and a very good breakfast. (My wife especially appreciated the fact that there were several "healthy choice" options offered) This place must have some great management, to keep such a friendly staff happy and motivated. We certainly plan to stay there again.

I've stayed here several times and always enjoyed it. The rooms are decorated nicely and have good amenities. The beds are pretty comfortable too. Breakfast is plentiful if a little bland, and there are many hot and cold items to choose from. Fresh cookies are nice in the evening.

I was on a road trip with two young children who had been promised a pool after a long day in the car. I was calling prospective Holiday Inns on my northbound journey on I-65 as I have been a member since 2006 and rarely stay at any other hotel. I spoke with a couple front desks to inquire about a pool, available rooms and food options. After I spoke with the exceptionally friendly staff at the Franklin Holiday Inn, my wife and I looked at each other and said "let's stay there". I was greeted by two great staff members, offered bottled water and was quickly checked into a room. Within 10-15 minutes of reaching my room, the front desk called to inquire if everything was satisfactory and if they could get me anything. The note pad in the room had a nice hand written note welcoming me to the hotel. They had a clean, heated indoor pool and hot tub (I found most outdoor pools are closed until labor day at other hotels south of Kentucky). The shower was they large and powerful shower head that I have come to love at most Holiday Inns. The WIFI, refrigerator, TV channels, air conditioning and beds were all clean, comfortable and in good working order. They have free breakfast like most Holiday Inns but they had an employee working hard to keep everything stocked, assisting everyone, and keeping everything clean. If you are passing through southern Kentucky and need a place to stay, this is the place to go. I've stayed at many Holiday Inns in about two dozen states and this is one of the best staff I have seen.
