“What an awesome place!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

Great biker motel!! A group of us went down in mid October, we wanted to ride our cycles down but the weather was not cooperating so we took a friends motorhome down. When we got there we checked in and they had a cooler outside full of different kinds of beverages, which were free! and the owners came out and talked with us like they knew us forever! The wicker room is a really neat room, all the rooms are different theamed. The hospitallity is un like any where we have ever stayed before. They have a shuttle that will take you wherever and whenever you want. We will be going back forsure!! Thanks to L&M motel for making our trip a GREAT one!!

Room Tip: all theamed rooms, love the wicker room!!

Please support this motel in Savanna, IL. They are the nicest people you ever wanna meet and they're doin' their best to provide a great, biker friendly motel and keep their heads above water. Now, I'll be honest...the place is no five star hotel, but they have a cooler full waiting for everyone upon check in, they greet everyone personally, they shuttle you to the bars and back, they have cover for the bikes, chairs to sit out on, a firepit...and Lois even had all the makings for S'Mores when we got back last night. Great experience!!

Very nice motel catering to motorcyclists during the riding season! Covered bike parking and shuttle service to grab a few drinks and food downtown and not have to worry about drinking and riding! Nice area with a firepit to visit with friends and make new ones. Definitely a stop on our anniversary trip again this yr.

At first I was disappointed the Super 8 was booked, now I am so glad it was! You never know what you're going to get with these roadside motels. The room was clean and comfortable. It may not be the most ritzy motel ever, but what they lack in decor, they more than make-up for in hospitality and customer service. They offer free beers and wine coolers in a large cooler in front of the office. The owner's son shuttled us to Poopy's, picked us up within 2 minutes of me calling him, and took us downtown. I made sure to ask that he would be back at 2am to pick us up. He assured me he would be, and he was. At first I thought $85 was a bit steep for a lil mom and pop motel, but the shuttle service makes the room worth every cent. After we came back from downtown he started a fire in the fire pit for everyone and we chatted and had some drinks with him. Then, the hot tub was a perfect end to the evening. I definitely plan on staying here again. Couldn't have been happier with this place.

Three couples rode up from Cental IL for the event. Some of us had not been to Poopy's. The owner's son served as ferry to and from the bar, saving us from DUIs and the cops from coming to the scene of an accident. This is no five star motel, but it was clean, modestly priced and catered to us bikers. They provided rags, welcome beverages from water and pop to beer and wine coolers.We enjoyed the hot tub and the fire pit.The three dogs were friendly but not pushy. The only reason I did not give it a 5 is because no one is perfect!

This was our second bike trip to Savanna, IL and staying at the L&M Motel. We brought 8 couples with us, and again Lois and Curtis at the L&M Motel did not disappoint. They have beverages available when you arrive and welcomed us with hugs. The rooms are clean and comfortable. They have a hose and towels available to wash the bikes. Curtis shuttled us to the Iron Horse downtown and also to Sabula, IA across the river. We sat by the bonfire both nights on our return to the motel. Great time was had by all and we will be back again next year. I would highly recommend staying here.

The most friendly people and best hospitality from any place I've every stayed. We pulled up on the bikes and were greeted with coolers of water and drinks. They have a covered area for the bikes; provide towels and Bug B Gone. Rooms were clean. We didn't use the shuttle that they provide at no cost but we will definately come again and most likely use the shuttle. Thanks for the great time :)
