After arriving at the hotel half of our rooms were smoking rooms even after requesting all non smoking. The owner was very helpful and tried to fix the problem but couldn't help all of us. When problems arose he did make prompt repairs. This is an older motel and it is undergoing repairs but the rooms were clean except for... More

I spent this past holiday weekend at this motel and was very satisfied with the room and the amenities. As commented on previously, the staff are very welcoming and the restaurant next door is is excellent with great coffee. I will definitely make this motel a regular stopping place for my visits to Paxton and vicinity.

We found the owner very Pleasant, and the motel was very clean and a nice comfortable bed. The room was spacious. This is an older motel, but we were very comfortable. Plus right next door is the Country Garden, and the food was good and the coffee great!

My husband is a truck driver and he was out of hours and I had to find him a hotel. I always check the reviews, if it wasn't for the reviews he would not have made it past the driveway. From the outside you would say "NO WAY" thats what he said to me on the phone when he pulled... More

I am very pleased with the service offered. The Motel is located next to the Highway and have couple of restaurants in walking distance. The rooms are clean. The hotel manager went out of his way to make us feel comfortable. .

A client from Ford County, Illinois warned me about the Paxton Inn but it was the only hotel in the area so I booked it anyway. I should have listened. When you are used to staying at a Holiday Inn Express on the road it’s a bit of a shock to step back into a motel from 1965. The front... More

The owner of the motel was so nice and helpful with anything we needed with no hesitations. He is there for his customers whenever needed. So... More

Paxton inn does not have their own driveway so its very difficult going behind a restaurant to get to the hotel. The service was horrible. We showed up early and paid for a whole extra night and the manager was very rude. We also planned on leaving a day early and the manager was very rude about returning our money.... More

My wife, son, and I recently went to Gordyville to see my wife's stepmom and needed a place to stay. Having stayed in Rantoul before (and not finding a good place there), we found the Paxton Inn was close to Gordyville. We checked in late which was no problem and asked for extra towels also no problem. The room was... More
