A perfectly fine small town budget hotel. Nothing fancy, but sheets and towels were clean, and the water was hot. Bed was comfortable enough at this price range. Room was larger than average. Wifi worked well.

This motel is old, but clean. Gentleman at front desk was friendly upon check-in but didn't see him at desk again (went to bring him a bullet shell found on floor in room- huh? Lol) Grounds were beautifully landscaped with roses and other flowering plants. Free wifi, coffee, milk, juice, cereal, muffins, toast & bananas. Laundry room & ice available....

The Carlin Villa has good smells. Clean. The bed was comfortable. The microwave and mini refrigerator were plain but new. The landscaping was simple and pretty and needed weeding. The continental breakfast was coffee, cereal, milk, juice, bananas, white toast and jam, and packaged not-made-from-scratch muffins.

This was our first night stop on a Route 66 bike tour across the States. The owner was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were old but clean and comfortable. We stayed here based on other TripAdvisor recommendations and were not disappointed.

The timing finally worked out for a stay at the CarlinVilla and I verified that all the good comments I had heard were true. It's a well maintained old timer owned by some folks who care about its history as well as its current reputation. My room was very clean and included fridge, microwave, and WiFi.

On our Rt.66 trip we were using the Dining and Lodging Guide which is updated every year. I highly recommend it for any traveler. The Carlinvilla Motel was as described, clean and inexpensive. It is certainly old, and that is what we were seeking. However it is graciously aged and the owners take pride in its care. You will be...

After a long day in Carlinville Lake was looking for a motel. The room was very clean, great air conditioner and had a good night sleep. IT rained all night and we was dry as the rest was sleeping at the lake in tents.

The motel is obviously old but that is also part of the charm. It is very nice, clean and has very friendly staff. It has free breakfast, free wifi, good beds, and a quiet surrounding/ All in all I would most definitely recommend it!

We spent 5 days in CarlinVilla in November. Room was a great value, clean, beds comfortable, and owners were always kind and helped you whenever you had questions or needed help. Many nice restaurants and things to see in Carlinville.
