My husband and I just happened on the Marcotte by accident. Going there two weeks ago, we were having difficulty making reservations anywhere in the Galena area and luckily the Marcotte had just gotten a last-minute cancellation. We felt particularly fortunate when we arrived there because the Marcotte was the type of homey, friendly, scenic spot we were looking for.... More

I stayed at Marcotte's Family Motel 2 nights and very much enjoyed my stay. The owners were very nice and provided a tray of coffee and muffins each morning outside our room. The room was nice and cozy with an updated looking bathroom. There was a microwave and refrigerator in the room both of which were clean. I was vacationing... More

I stayed several days. I am not as excited about it as some reviewers. The owners are very nice. The room I was in was OK. The setting is beautiful but be aware that it is a mile out of town. It is a very peaceful place. The owners built a campfire on Saturday night which was very hospitable. The... More

I made the mistake of reading the glowing reviews of Marcotte Family Motel and booked a room here. Upon arrival, the owners were nowhere to be found. The room reminded me of my great grandma's apartment, which always spooked me out each time I visited. Smashed bugs on the ceiling .... does anyone care to clean it? Creepy chairs, mismatched...

We would have loved the opportunity to correct any problems that you encountered with your stay at that time. We do apologize if we did not ask you how your stay was at the time you turned your key in; this is... More

Clean, comfortable, best area price in a beautiful natural setting. A wise traveler will stay here in Elizabeth while exploring Galena, the gorgeous Jo Daviess County countryside, the Mississippi River Valley or the Driftless Area. Our room was large with queen bed, sofa, dresser, and rocking chair at window with fantastic view. TV and bathroom also. Coffee and muffins in... More

These are good people who care, warmhearted and generous. Comfortable, beautiful view, a little funky, spacious. Loved the coffee and home baked muffins. Definitely grandma's place. I hope my kids will want to return. They say they love it but--It's quiet!

Donna and Art are fabulous hosts! The room was very personal, unique and homey with antique furnishings. The "modern" internet connection and TV service added to the relaxing atmosphere. Add the snowy scene from the back window -- one happy guest!!!!

We are season pass holders at Chestnut Mountain who prefer to stay at this lovely little motel when we can manage an overnight trip. Donna and Art are friendly and accommodating and as others have stated, this place feels like an overnight at your favorite grandma's home, complete with coffee and muffins outside your door in the morning. Don't get... More
