After a long day in Carlinville Lake was looking for a motel. The room was very clean, great air conditioner and had a good night sleep. IT rained all night and we was dry as the rest was sleeping at the lake in tents.

The motel is obviously old but that is also part of the charm. It is very nice, clean and has very friendly staff. It has free breakfast, free wifi, good beds, and a quiet surrounding/ All in all I would most definitely recommend it!

We spent 5 days in CarlinVilla in November. Room was a great value, clean, beds comfortable, and owners were always kind and helped you whenever you had questions or needed help. Many nice restaurants and things to see in Carlinville.

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.

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
