This was ok for the price. The room was clean but very dated, and there were a couple of bugs which had got in somehow. The breakfast was practically non existent, and although there were tea bags there was no way to produce boiling water. The greeting was friendly and there is a really good restaurant just across the road.

We were driving Route 66 and found this place by accident. It was getting late in the day and thought we'd like to see more of Carlinville. Carlin Villa was very basic however the room was clean and spacious. We'd loved being able to park our car outside our room. We had our evening meal at Angus Bailey's in town... More

We had a very good nights sleep here in clean, comfortable surroundings. There was a good continental breakfast, a pool and a very polite, friendly owner. We would recommend it especially after a day travelling.

A nice clean, quiet motel being remodeled. The owners were very nice and helpful, and returning the motel to it's previous glory as a route 66 motel. The room was clean and bed was very comfortable, the price was very affordable. Will stay again when in the area.

Small Route66 motel with very friendly owner just of Il-4. Rooms are clean, roomy and well appointed with a good bed. Has internet available. Overall very satisfied with this as an overnight stay on our travels.

We stayed here in early October. The chap who greeted us was extremely friendly and very helpful. The rooms were large and clean and quiet considering the proximity to the road. We walked across the road to Crabby's Restaurant for dinner. What a find!! The meal was superb and the owners were amazed to have "Aussies" in the establishment. Breakfast... More

We were traveling route 66 and Carlinvilla Motel was mentioned in our route 66 guide, and as soon as we saw this place we fell in love with this quaint little motel. We were welcomed with very friendly folks and after asking to see a room (which looked great) we decided to spend the night at the Carlinvilla and I... More

This was our first stay in ‘highly – widely’ -recommended R66 motel and our first disappointment. For the price we paid, I would expect a bug free accommodation at least. Unfortunately, during the night we had some rather big 'visitors' in our bathroom. For me, personally, it is a huge drawback that completely destroyed the whole experience.

We have family in Carlinville so we chose to stay at the Carlinvilla. It is an ok place to stay. It does need some work but overall was pretty clean and reasonable. It is a very simple, plain motel. If you want something fancy, this is not the place for you. If you are like us and just needed a... More
