Recent guest reviews

My family was passing through Kentucky and stopped to sleep. They awoke with bug bites. When my dad went to the office to express his concerns, no one came out. We do not recommend this hotel to anyone.

I've stayed here before and this place has all I need, the A/C works, the bed is comfortable and the showers hot. They have a typical continental breakfast and the place is quiet, plenty of parking and they let me have my Wyndham points even with the discount.

I usually stay in Bowling Green when in the area but all other hotels were booked due to the Corvette Homecoming. This Knight's Inn was horrible; - a/c unit had two trash cans under it to catch condensation due to a plugged drain and a/c spit water and would shut on and off because of a fault. - found a pair of women's underwear behind fridge - nasty - found a used bag of jerkey under the edge of the bed (poor housekeeping). - cable went out Saturday night and never came back on. Manager felt no discount was applicable. I don't know if the hotel should get new management/owners that care of just be condemned and torn down.

The building is old, but not terrible. The hallway smells of old cigarettes and the carpet is stained throughout, but not too horribly. Our room had a broken phone and stained pillowcase. If the odor and stains themselves were not enough to keep us from returning, the pill-bugs found crawling the floor and on my foot were. TV was not working, but front desk helped with that. Overall a terrible experience with nice help from the front desk.

I did like the room, which seemed to be in good shape, had a nice television, mini-fridge, and micro-wave oven, but the overall appearance of this obviously former Super 8 property was shabby and drab. Plus, the free breakfast was poor. If I was ever in the area, again, I would probably check out a different place. No, it's not horrible, but it is at best just average, and many would probably say it's below average. RJT

Please don't stay here. The hotel was very hot and even the room was very hot and the ac was on high when we got into the room. The beds wasn't made and the bathroom was nasty and it had bugs in the bathtub. It was over priced. We went to the DAYS INN nearby and got a better deal and a lot cleaner room and the staff was friendly.

Our son is riding a bicycle from Indiana to Florida bringing awareness and raising money for the American Cancer Society through an organization he started called Bike For Life. The stop in Franklin Kentucky was a stay at the Knights Inn. We made reservation two weeks prior but when the boys arrived the hotel had lost the reservation. The hotel clerk offered a room but told the boys that they would have to pay for the room before they could see it. The reservation was for a two bed, nonsmoking room. After paying for the room the boys walked in a room that only one bed and smelled like cigarettes and urine. My son went to the front desk and politely asked for a refund and was told that because they had walked in the room there would be no refunds. My son and the other two riders had traveled twelve hours on a bicycle and could not sleep in this room with just one bed. This hotel didn’t just steal our money but took money that would have gone to the American Cancer Society. These are good kids who have worked so hard in bringing awareness and raising money for such a cause it’s a shame that some people such as the family that own and run the Knights Inn in Franklin Kentucky have to be so unscrupulous in their business practices. I would never recommend any one to stay at this hotel. I have talked to the corporate office and made a complaint. The corporate office was very apologetic and promised to look in to the problem.

I don't often experience a bad hotel or restaurant, but this was one of them. On entering, the receptionist, the owners wife, couldn't find our booking. She needed her spectacles!! The breakfast area was in reception with 3 tables so several people had to stand and eat. We went up to our room and the key card worked temperamentally. The bathroom was the only clean room in the place and the bedroom was very bare with no coffee maker. When I enquired of the owner, he said coffee was only served between 6 and 9a.m!! We slept very badly as people were arriving all through the night with no regard to guests sleeping. A very unhappy stay. Don't go there!

Please don't plan to stay here. Unfortunately, when you're on the road & tired you don't always think to check reviews before you check in. I had to ask for cleaning supplies to clean the bathroom. Filthy room, overpriced, would NEVER stay there again, or any Knights Inn based on our experience at this one.

Stayed here using hotel coupon from travel magazine, cost was only $41 including tax. This is an older hotel that has changed hands several times. The simplest furnished hotel did have large TV, refrigerator and microwave in room. The room was clean. The shower had an endless supply of hot water and strong water pressure. The TV had over 80 channels. Owner was pleasant as he checked me in.
