Booked here for a Galena trip based on reviews and we were not disappointed. If you like fancy hotel digs this is not for you, but if you'd rather stay somewhere with down-to-earth retro flair this is the place. There are connecting rooms for groups and the bonfire pit was a perfect way to end the night. The owners were... More

This past weekend my husband and I stayed here in Room 2. Wow! Talk about charm! Our room was clean, comfortable, and adorable! Reminded me of vacations at my Grandma's house! The views both out front and our room window were awash with the beginnings of fall color--so pretty! The owner was wonderfully friendly and hospitable, and to top off... More

My fella and I decided to 'fly by the seat of our pants.' We took off for an adventure with no reservations. We tried to get a room in the quaint town in which we were going to visit a loved one but they were booked. They called Marcotte's for us and luckily they had a room. The room was... More

Stayed overnight here on a quick trip from Chicago to visit a friend and the Apple River Fort historic site. The room was clean and comfortable (we were in number 2 - king bed, no micro/fridge - TV but we didn't use it so can't report - small bathroom, no tub, not much counter space), couch, desk, side chair. Didn't... More

This is the homiest, most friendly place! The owners are on site and very friendly! We were able to sit and relax by a fire (in the outdoor fire pit) after a day of site seeing and antiquing! Awesome experience! Would definitely stay again!

I encountered the motel while making an impromptu “escape” from a hectic work week. Set on top of a hill along US Highway 20, 15-20 minutes outside of Galena it s convenient, it commands a wonderful view of the surrounding countryside. The large room was comfortably appointed with a king bed, microwave, refrigerator, table and chairs, a large stuffed chair,... More

My class reunion prompted our return visit to Marcotte's this Summer. After driving from California we stayed 5 nights at Marcotte's and enjoyed it very much! Beds at comfortable, kitchen and bathroom was spotless. One of the best things is they are pet friendly so we brought our Corgi on our trip. We would highly recommend staying at Marcotte's and...

We spent two days at the motel during the 4th of July long weekend. The room and bathroom were large and had everything we needed: great nature view, comfortable cute clean bedding, fridge and microwave. The owners are very pleasant and hospitable. They showed us on the map off-beaten scenic path directions to the local attractions, made bonfire to repel... More

We stayed here for two days and loved it! The room in which we stayed had a king bed, microwave and refrigerator and there was a table and chairs, daybed and comfy chair included in the room. This is the type of motel that is very family and couple friendly, with a great view of the valley and chairs to... More

I had driven a U-Haul accross parts of Iowa - booooooring! - that day, continuing onwards to Illinois, and had already picked Elizabeth, IL as my goal for the night. When I finally showed up at Marcotte's Family Motel way late and way after dark (in the middle of August) I nevertheless received a perfectly friendly welcome and found myself... More
