    • Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    I was looking forward to staying at the Franklin Hotel. We stayed there a few years ago and I was left with a good memory. In the past, although the hotel is very small, they had managed to give it a unique charm. The breakfast in their tiny room was so delicious and fresh. Today, the place looks completely run down, the carpeting is thin and worn out, the rooms are cold, the bedding provided is old and doesn't keep you warm. The carpets are covered with old stains and so is the furniture in the room. We arrived to find out that the breakfast service was discontinued even though our reservation included breakfast. They told us that they had to discontinue the breakfast because of the health department? Which made no sense. What a shame, the place has lost it all.
