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

Our room was spacious and clean, and the beds were comfortable. Internet worked well. The owner is friendly and gave us ideas of places to visit in the area. He even allowed us to keep our bicycles inside so they would be secure and safe.

We stayed here on our Route 66 Road trip based on a Route 66 Lodging Guide recommendation. It was affordable and the owner was very nice, however the motel itself could use a lot of work. When we first pulled up I thought this place would not be very nice. The exterior needs a lot of work. However, the interior... More

I stayed here when I was interviewing for a job. This was a few years back, and I have been living in the area for the last 2 year... I got the job. From what I can recall, it was a good experience. The people were friendly and helpfu. The motel is older but it has a nice feel to... More

Sadly disappointed. Owners were very nice, but the place is worn out and not too clean. Found a mass of cobwebs over the bed which had cigarette burn holes in the blanket. Shower head fell off when I tried to adjust it. Planned on staying three nights but left the next morning. If you are willing to settle for less... More

Unfortunate that this couple from NY was not happy. This motel is an older motel that has not yet been remodeled. The customer was unhappy from the beginning with the exterior of the building. We offered to let her see the room ahead of time, cancel her reservation with no fees and even told her of another hotel. She still... More

We called them at around 11pm and wanted a room. They were more than willing to accomodate us. Every step of the way they were kind & courteous. They have been unable to do the exterior remodeling that they wanted to due to the fact that the previous owner was untruthful about the property. They however have made sure that... More
