Franklin, United States From the moment you arrive at the Carlton Lodge you will feel the warmth, caring and concern about you and the comfort of your stay. That warmth is accented by our great room complete with a huge fieldstone fireplace. The rough cedar and fieldstone exterior give the feeling of a cozy mountain retreat. The Carlton Lodge sets itself apart from other limited service hotels by offering many upgrades not typically found in a limited service hotel. For instance all guest rooms have Sealy Posture Pedic Ultra Plush mattresses to ensure a comfortable night sleep. Stay at the Carlton Lodge to experience a new standard of excellence.
