The owner of this establishment is caring and concienous . Good prices We had to leave a broken down car there for a week and he did not charge the ten dollar overnight fee he usually does. Very professional and helpful. The prices are quite affordable, so don't expect the Ritz.

Me and my family were forced to stay in this place because of a snowstorm, when I looked up the price online it was $55 but when I called and told the owner we needed to get out the snowstorm he told me $70 for his last two rooms and I better get there in ten minutes. I wasn't expecting... More

Quiet, clean and convenient. Beats the crowded hotels/motels in the larger cities. Close to several restaurants, one within walking distance, that has great Walleye, if you like fish. Good assortment of food to choose from.

I'm not going to give every little detail and issue. Mostly because I don't have all day. If you like a clean room. This is not the place to stay. The carpet was filthy. We could not take our shoes off. Dirty and sticky!The bathroom was so hideous and disgusting. I felt dirty even showering there. Beds are stained and... More

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
