Clean and quiet motel. Beautiful views of the countryside. The muffins and coffee on the vintage tray and creamer was awesome. I would stay here again. I wish it was pouring rain because I would have liked to sit around the fire pit they have.

We appreciate your kind words. It sure did pour, didn't it!! It cleared up nicely on Sunday, but too late for you to enjoy a campfire. I guess you'll just have to come back!! Donna More

My boyfriend and I came here for our first time over memorial weekend and it was absolutely amazing. The owners were very friendly and left us coffee and muffins in the morning. Also the room was very nice and affordable. We will definitely be coming back!!

We stay at this hotel every year the day after Thanksgiving with another couple. We always reserve two rooms that are separate from the regular motel rooms. We just love it here, a very kind couple who run the business, rooms are always clean and the coffee and muffins in the morning are such a sweet touch!

We have stayed here several times, in different rooms have never been disappointed. The Marcotte family goes above and beyond to make you feel like family. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and the coffee and muffins that were left outside our room each morning was a lovely surprise. Rural America still exists! The location was perfect with great views and... More

A great place to stay. If your looking for homey ,clean, tidy and friendly this is it. The owners were awesome. Good muffins!we had basic rooms and that's what it was, satellite TV, shower, two beds . it was quiet and relaxing. I know where I'm staying when I go back that way.

Booked here for a Galena trip based on reviews and we were not disappointed. If you like fancy hotel digs this is not for you, but if you'd rather stay somewhere with down-to-earth retro flair this is the place. There are connecting rooms for groups and the bonfire pit was a perfect way to end the night. The owners were... More

This past weekend my husband and I stayed here in Room 2. Wow! Talk about charm! Our room was clean, comfortable, and adorable! Reminded me of vacations at my Grandma's house! The views both out front and our room window were awash with the beginnings of fall color--so pretty! The owner was wonderfully friendly and hospitable, and to top off... More

My fella and I decided to 'fly by the seat of our pants.' We took off for an adventure with no reservations. We tried to get a room in the quaint town in which we were going to visit a loved one but they were booked. They called Marcotte's for us and luckily they had a room. The room was... More

Stayed overnight here on a quick trip from Chicago to visit a friend and the Apple River Fort historic site. The room was clean and comfortable (we were in number 2 - king bed, no micro/fridge - TV but we didn't use it so can't report - small bathroom, no tub, not much counter space), couch, desk, side chair. Didn't... More
